    Irish S3 owner

    Hey guys taught I might as well introduce myself since I have gotten my S3.
    My name is Paul and I am from Ireland. I am 29 and have been into cars as long as I can remember. I have had jap scrap for years Started with a Glanza, then a type r integra, then a Evo 7 then a sti spec-c, and finally a 500 bhp evo tme rs. Because of the way things went with the economy I decided to get rid of the evo and bought a 2004 VW Passat 1.9 tdi sport big step down from the evo but it is a lovely car, well built and so comfy.

    Well the missus does more milage than me so I have given her the passat got rid of her focus and I bought the S3 for myself Its a 2001 car 95,000 miles 2 owner and a full audi service history. Very nice car and well looked after. it has a few marks but nothing ya wouldnt expect from a 9 year old car.

    Its totally standard for now
    But I aint going to go mad modifying it like past cars what I have planned is:
    A remap,
    Bilstein dampers with h&r lowering springs,
    18" BBS CH replicas.

    Down the line I may go for a full exhaust system and a front mount.

    Anyway heres some pics let me know what you guys think.
