    S3RYE's Build Thread

    Hi,

    Some of you guys already know me, I have been a member on here for over a year.. I have a Phantom S3 8P3...

    I have created several threads over the time ive been a member but never really had a main build thread so thought i would even though i havent actually done much building yet...

    It all started last February, i was bored of my beloved GTTuning Cooper S.. although it was so dearly loved i felt i needed a change, something bigger, faster yet still tunable and good looking (classy)... i always wanted an S3 since seeing one (when first released) in Audi on a 56 reg in sprint blue..

    So cut a long story short i went to Audi and within two weeks picked up my new car.. (im very impatient and found a new facelift that was in stock) part of the reason i dont have buckets

    so here she was after 200 miles and her first pics





    i was instantly in love.. everything about the car was spot on apart from the ipod dock which was a right rip off!!! but mehhh

    few months went by and my car got egged!!

    so i contacted Gleammachine, and had her detailed... few pics.. (she looked 10x better than when i collected her)





    next up was a visit to AMD essex for Revo stage 1... what a transformation.. she made 328BHP/324Lb/Ft

    then i snapped up an Evoms Intake and had that installed



    now she was sounding lovely, feeling a lot looser and generally all round better to drive... finally starting to unlock some of her potential...

    I now wanted to sort the looks out a bit, sounds mad but i really dont like having a standard looking car... now i know people object BBS CH's cause they're common as muck bla bla bla.. but i think they are one of the best looking wheels out there + take it away from the standard look so win for me...

    I went with 18x8 et50 with a Michelin PS2 all round in 225/40/18 (i really wanted to keep the ride from being crashy, as i made this mistake by putting 18's on my Cooper S...

    Offer up..


    looks good enough... down to the bank to ge the cash and wallop...



    now i got the wheels the gap starts to bother me so i immediately order some H&R's from Damian @ DPM thanks

    whilst waiting for these i had the unfortunate luck of some ******* crashing into me...


    thanks you unisured ****!!

    so it was three months in total without my baby, in this time i had a a4 tdi, s3, TT 3.2 and a nissan pixo... see pic of my favourite!



    so once i got it back finally i got the springs fitted and took some new photos, really liking how she is looking now..







    and one dirty one


    so thats all for now...

    Trying to save some money now so i can get Led's, Spacers, Arbs's, Stage 2 map and TBE.. want to do all that in one hit! watch this space.....

    Looks fantastic! You have some extras on your car which I want so much:

    Auto Dim E/Folding Mirrors
    Rain Sensor
    Interior Light pack

    Why would someone spend so much on a car and not order map reading lights...

    yeh evoms make an engine cover for it but its just plain.. quite nice though i think (does its job of tidying it up) some people cut off parts off the old one and stick it on to it etc.. http://www.vag-tuner.com/acatalog/2.0TFSI.html

    or some people just chop off parts of the oem engine cover and reuse that which also looks good.. im just not sure about taking a dremel to mine

    its great, but its a ***** to keep clean.. and it marks so easily.. Audi paint seems to be very soft if you know what i mean.. e.g my girlfriend is a bit careless at time and when she gets bags or things out the car tends to rub agaist the car.. and i end up wanting to

    Really nice car, I love the colour my first A3 was in phantom, one of those colours you really need to have polished properly to see at it's best (which you have clearly had done)

    Big thumbs up from me!

    ok guys so a bit of an update....

    as you might remember a set of buckets came up on ebay last week.. well i was kind of fed up with the whole bucket situation... i had money there for them which i dipped into the week before but i couldnt go any longer without them... (i was genuinely looking at buying another S3 dropping modding just for seats).. sounds sad but is true.

    so i called the guy up thrashed a deal out and drove to leeds from east london at 7pm on thursday evening after work...

    anyway so got up there was an ok drive.. got to the seats and well they werent in prestine condition like advertised.. but i werent complaining id just driven 200 miles on a weeknight... so took em.. long painful drive home with seats resting on the bolsters on the boot i had visions someone would slam there brakes or do something real stoopid infront of me and cause the seats to fly through the window or something... anyway they didn't..

    got home at 2.30am had work so left them in the car (i was that tired)

    next day woke up without any issues haha!... also had a quiet morning at the office so over to M.O.T place next to me few tools and off we go.. had them installed in 1 hour.. piece of piss really....

    i cant explain to you how much more i love my car... its easier to drive hard.. no slipping... and everytime your in the car you feel that little bit more special... not to mention people really notice them... cant imagine the looks Nath gets when driving about!!

    i have left my original door cards in for the moment.. im currently deciding what to do... im gonna go for a full retrim next year after ive gone stage 2... id like to hear peoples opinions on colours for retrim and stuff

    anyway guys enough talkin heres some pics... hope you like... the outside was clean but inside was a bit dusty....

    I really like the door cards being in a different colour, looks a bit like audi exclusive! would you consider having a couple of panels of the seats done in the same colour to match? I think that would look ace.

    yeh me too... im considering putting the black/silver bench back in... (ill loose through load and centre arm rest in rear - not too bothered cause i dont see this benefit anyway) and gettin the buskets retrimmed to match.. just unsure whether a retrimmers would be able to match the colour codes on the leather... id want it exact!

    they never came with wiring looms... the Recaro seats have a different loom to normal seats... am in the process of sorting this now...

    yeh am thinking along these lines.. with the embossment i think it would be easier for the to RECARO emboss them? i dont know why... i just worry it will be scaled wrong or look **** then the whole things a waste of time.. if and when they get retrimmed i want an ace job.....

    just been quoted 1300 for full Nappa leather retrim.. including whatever colour stitching i want and differnt colour panels... http://www.theseatsurgeons.com/metad..._row=8#gallery

    they look like a top company and there gallery is pretty impressive.. only objection... i asked how its all done.. basically i take my car there... they then get a factory in china to manufacture the kit... i take the car back at 8.30 am and its done by 3pm? does this sound right?? or should it all be done in house? she reckoned the quality is exceptional and they dont fit the kit unless its spot on...
