    Brembo big brakes and arbs are all I need to buy now. Got a room full of bits to fit but it aint gonna happen until I can feel my fingers outside.

    Might get stage2 done though as its only 50, not feeling an exhaust though.

    Try and insure it and not be bankrupt come the end of it.

    If im not bankrupted after that then:

    Service & suspension fixed
    Get the front damage fixed
    Custom front bumper
    Lightweight alloys
    FMIC
    Brembos & braided lines
    Lcr splitter
    New fogs & lights
    Partial respray

    Not much really

    Yes, selling it is another option of mine, I'm not using it much, and I fancy something with more BHP for my occasional use.

    Opposite problem for me, putting to many miles on it to quickly and need something more economical

    No plans for the S3, but the Ibiza is going to be broken in late spring as it's got past the point of economic repair.

    To replace it I have a 2 litre 16v ABF engined Seat Cordoba SX 'coupe' which is going into the garage in a fortnight for:
    • Schrick cams
    • Polish & port the head
    • TSR 4 branch manifold
    • Throttle body
    • Sports cat
    • Stainless exhaust

    The car was previously owned by a mate who has already sorted the chassis and handling out - so I'm tweaking the power. Hoping for somewhere around 175 - 180 bhp in a car that will weigh around a tonne. That's about 40 more than the Ibiza so should be noticeable.

    Cleaning it later today though.

    When I actually have funds:
    Down pipe
    Decat
    Dual exhaust like the S6
    FMIC
    BT
    Body kit (New shape s3 style front bumper)
    Led front fogs
    Rear lights
    Devil eye headlights
    Double Din headunit
    Replace distorted bose sub
    DV moved to cold side
    Samco hoses (in yellow if possible)
    Cold feed induction pipe
    Coilovers
    Brembo brakes
    19" rs4 alloys
    Respray (either same colour or white)

    Think that's about it.

    Early this year I plan to do the following to the S3;

    1. Fit 007p DV (still sitting in box)
    2. Fit panel filter
    3. Custom Code or Revo Stage 1 (still undecided)
    4. Silicone TIP
    5. KW Springs and Shocks kit
    6. Tie bars (Awesome or Forge)
    7. Uprated ARBs
    8. RaceDiagostics LiquidS3


    Then turn my attentions to getting the MG on track;

    1. Engine rebuild
    2. Fix bodywork damage caused by dad reversing in to me!
    3. New sticky Yokos
    4. Possibly Revolution 4 spokes
    5. Tracking and alignment


    Then back to the S3;

    9. Subtle window tints
    10. Maybe BBS LM (reps)
    11. Custom exhaust (turbo back)
    12. Maybe FMIC
    13. Stage 2 map

    Damn, seeing it all typed out like that makes it obvious I need a better paying job!
