    Oh and before you all ask 'did your parents buy you it' the answers no ....... and yes my insurance premium is not a laughing matter. lol..... well worth the massive smile though when you see your mates in corsas / fiestas and the likes.

    its a different car to drive really! Spools up alot later but does come in with a bigger kick! Although some of the kits are not to expensive, once you go over 350bh you have to start uprating internals! i changed the rods and bottom end, mines about 350bhp, (depends what rollers you take it on!) Where are you from dont mind taking you out for a blast in mine sometime!

Im pretty glad theres some more young ones on as you can relate to each others situations and share the same passion... Clatch im a civil engineer in structural design... plus i have no mortgage and kids to worry about just the girl friend which can get expensive...lol. as the saying goes 'do it while your young' and another good one 'live the dream' live by these and you cant go far wrong. lol.

    Yea its a pre face lift, the rs8s went straight on, not running any spacers, although if i do end up keeping the car ill change them to some sportec monos and put some spacers on, as i know where i can get the wheels from now!

    I think I've seen you twice too mate last week. I live in Wilsden but don't tell anyone!! All my mates live in Bingley so if you see a black one driving like a nobhead thats me. I'll give you thumbs up next time I see you.

    Bugger thought I was the only S3 in town. Time for a change.

    Was gonna say it would be easier without a mortgage..... i think a lot of people who bought houses between 2000-06 are living off the equity aswell, also.... if i didnt have my mort id be in a new RS4 i reckon ...... although i am 28 so priority is now the long term....to be a boring fecker, the mort is staying for now grrrr

    Careful...Glad your are enoying yourself, but living the dream can also get you into a wee bit of bother. I was 7K in the modification/ credit card hole after living the dream with a Porsche 944 at your age...Enjoy, but it's a car that will be worth little next to nothing in 10 years

    Geez, i sound like a grumply old git...

    apparently not, with the huge brakes there's a problem with the master cylinder not being big enough irc! Unless this was changed as well? most people go for the gt kit.

    S3 RAV. Ring corey at Quattronics on 01636822288. hes a major 20v turbo tuner.. i actually bought my car from correy (he was looking after it for some one and wanted to sell it) he provided and fit mine... he sells them and uses them on all of his quattros.. (hes got an 800bhp s2 with them on) if you ring him tell him 'scott that bought his s3 recomended u' hell no who i am. Infact he actually had a set for sale. i believe they were 500 quid new at a massive discounted price... looks the dogs aswell .. hope this helps mate. Scott

    He's probably borrowing against his house...... or hes been lucky with his last cars and not lost too much in residuals.... A mate at work was looking at a new M3 by borrowing out of his equity...dangerous stuff especially when you weigh up the advantages and disadvantages over the long term.....could get run over tomorrow i suppose so why not
