    Cold aint the word! I have spent two days machine polishing the s3, doing some chips on it etc? Then today tried my Menzerna super molecular jacket on it, put it on at 3pm, left it 40 mins, went out to buff it off and it's flipping frozen on the roof and bonnet! I had to spritz boiling hot water on it to buff it off.

    i must clear the garage out!!

    the engine bay wasnt really that dirty but what i did was get sum gunk engine degreaser sprayed it all over (after covered all electricals and air filter) brushed it in then left for 5 mins then rinsed off, i dried it all off with a old towel then sprayed all the plastics with a back to black bumper spray an turned out well

    The air filter is jabba sport air filter works very well after driving the car hard if i feel the air filter after its always cold!

    Thanks for comments

    Lovely colour with the S3 kit. Love the MTM rep wheels too, something about their shape they really suit the A/S3

    To much heat air around this filter, would change it for a BMC CDA !..

    Your engine looks very nice, what products do you use to keep it so nice!? :D

    I used GUNK engine degreaser to clean the engine up ( it wasnt that dirty anyway), and back to black bumper spray for the engine covers and pipes!

    I have Eibach coilover suspension on it, and the wheels were from wheel mania.

    I dont have a problem with hot air getting to the filter so i dont need to change to a bmc cda!

    Thanks for comments
