    What would you add from one of your old cars?

    Here's a little lighthearted thread to take our minds off the stresses of 'Stealers'!

    So, if you could make one mod from any previous car you owned to you A3/S3, what would it be?

    To kick the ball off I'd have a rear seat armrest whick you can poke long things through like in my old SAAB :-)

    Definately the electric controls to operate the rear 3/4 windows to open outward from my Megane Coupe. I loved those windows opening....!!

    The exhaust noise from my 1969 Escort MkI after the exhaust tip had fallen off without me noticing. It sounded like a spitfire. Oh, and the rear-wheel drive the Escort had too.

    But not the hand-operated washer jet, the 3 candle-power headlamps, the marshmallow tyres, the thin steering wheel, the damp, the 22mpg, 85mph top-whack, 1.3l engine that only used a 1/4 of the space under the bonnet.

    Got to be the 'snick-snick' awesome gearbox from the EVO6, but it's only a 5 speed.

    Also have to second antss3 suggestion as well.

    The induction noise off a pair of 48 sidedraft dellortos. I'll save the embarassment by not mentioning the car, but you're free to speculate.
