    My Ibis white S3 transformation

    Owned the S3 just over 20 months now are in that time its had a few makeovers and lots of indecision but innovation comes from indecision . Started off a standard S3.

    The current spec is as follows

    ENGINE: MILLTEK TURBO BACK EXHAUST, ITG INTAKE, REVO STAGE 2+, AUTOTECH FUEL PUMP, RS4 FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR, FORGE DV VALVE, SACHS CLUTCH, MODIFIED ENGINE BAY COVER

    PERFORMANCE: 365 BHP, 380 FT-LBS TORQUE

    SUSPENSION: KW V3 COILOVERS, H&R ARBS

    BODYWORK: MY10 TAILGATE WITH SHORTENED PLATE RECESS, MODIFIED RS6 BLACK
    OPTICS GRILL, MY09 FACELIFT REAR VALANCE, MY11 FACELIFT TAILLIGHTS, DE WIPERED, MY11 B-PILLARS, LAMIN-X ON HEADLIGHTS (TINT)

    INTERIOR: RS6 STEERING WHEEL, EXTERIOR COLOUR CODED SEAT BACKS, LEATHER PARCEL SHELF, LEATHER KNEE RESTS, VARIOUS INTERIOR TRIMS COLOUR CODED TO MATCH EXTERIOR, OEM S3 BUCKET SEATS, TT VENTS, LED BULBS, INTERIOR LIGHT PACK, LIGHT/RAIN SENSOR, PRIVACY GLASS, FRONT CENTRE ARMREST, AUTO DIMMING/FOLDING MIRRORS, PARK ASSIST

    WHEELS & TYRES: BENTLEY CONTINENTAL GT RIMS, FALKEN 452S 215/35/19

    I.C.E: BOSE SOUND SYSTEM, CD CHANGER, SDS VOICE RECOGNITION, ALPINE IPOD KIT, RNE-E SAT NAV, BLUETOOTH PREP


    Transferred a few bits which I had purchased for my previous A3 over to the S3 including the interior and the BBS CK's,




    Had a set of Rotiform BLQ's along the way which i ran for a few months



    One of my favourite mods is the RS6 front grill







    Had a bit of a setup back last December, cut a long story short it went on its holidays and ended up coming home with a new engine from the facelift S3



    Piston was a little poorly to say the least



    While I was under the bonnet decided the engine covers were in need of a new lease of life so out came the paint



    Have done a few things in the interior. Door trims, gear gaitor surround, TT vents, steering wheel surround and the glove box trims have been painted Ibis white. The knee rest triangles have been retrimmed in leather with white stitching. Set of custom mats.



    One of my favourite interior mods is the painted bucket seats and harness holders



    Had the parcel shelf trimmed in black leather with a white insert





    Was getting ready for new stopping power as the pads were nearly metal to metal so decided on some oem discs which I had grooved



    I shortened the front recess by fitting the rs6 grill but the rear number plate recess has bugged me for a long time with me running a shortened plate (road legal) so after purchasing a facelift tailgate the transforming started








    Deciding on the wheels to run for the show season was a lot of indecision, thanks to Jules he was selling the Bentleys which I had wanted to run for a long time but didnt want to run as Jules was running at the time. The car sat on blocks of wood for three weeks deciding on what colour scheme to run on them.





    Paint on the front end was getting a little untidy so was booked in for a make over, along with painting the tailgate the front bumper and bonnet was painted.









    March soon came around an it was time of Ultimate dubs once again so it spent a few days in the garage all been cleaned up.

    With the paint been new decided some tape was in order to travel down to Ultimate Dubs



    Had an awesome weekend down at the show














    All the hard work finally paid of winning one of the top 5 Audi





    A massive thanks to all those that have helped with the car over the months, Tim @ truepaint for the tailgate, Newmills Autobody for the paint, Sprayworld for the wheels and interior trims, MJ interiors for the leather and all at PeakVag for putting up with my indecision

    yeah had them a good while now. when getting out of the car, i always put my hand on the door kick plate and lift myself out, saves wear on the bolsters, got that much into the habbit looks a bit weird when i get out of mates cars.
    Get them done, finishes them off. yeah really happy with the bootlid, finishes the rear off nicely

    Yeah mostley for shows, sold the CK's but ive got CH black editions to put on the car when I wana go out and have fun in the car and use it to its potential. if I hadn't of been able to do the majourity of the work myself it wouldn't of happened. A few quid had been spent but all worth it. Luckily i dont have to use as a daily, thats what ive got my caddy van for.

    I have to say, I love this car. Loving the interior, and the grill, however, I must apologise but the wheels ruin it for me. I dont lke the bentleys, it just doesnt suit.. Love the rest of the car loads though, you have done an incredible job on it.

    Love the car, some good details mate. The tailgate is epic. Timmy teased me with pictures along the way, made me want a private plate just to do this!

    Only thing I dislike is the front grill, looks abit chavvy to me, oh and the 2008 wheels! Other than that, looks lovely mate. x
