    My Sprint S3 :)

    I bought her about a month ago, just clocked over 40k with me now. There's not a single mark on her to be fair! Apart from a bit of wear on driver's sear and a bluetooth phone kit in the dash

    My wheels are getting painted black tomorrow, so will post piccies when done. I've had them repainted untill i decide what bigger wheels i want to go for

    Ive bought a Miltek DeCat, and am on the hunt for a Miltek CatBack to match. Has anyone used the DeCat with a OEM Rear Section?
    I'm also looking to get an Induction Kit (ITG, Neuspeed? any suggestions?)
    And need a remap once these are fitted, also any recomendations with mapping, i may have openned a can of worms :P

    Is there an optional grille available for an 07 S3? Like the honeycomb to match the fog trims

    And finally, i want to get my hands on an RNS-E, is there different one's? and can they be used with the iPod dock in the glove?

    Only things i've done are LED Sidelights and Numberplate Lights. I fancy a pair later rear lights too

    Thanks in advance, and appologies for the questions

    Anyhoo, here's some pics of my OEM Sprint

    Lovely colour, very nice

    Do you still have your Supra? My other half has recently bought 2 of them and is breaking one to add bits to the other and then sell everything else. He used to have a 700bhp model and wants to build a quicker one to run a 9 in, I feel like there's a third party in the relationship lol.

    Enjoy.

    gorgeous looking car mate
    regards the decat and the oem back section... it can be done, but its not advised, as to run the decat youll need to be running at least stage 2 software and the exhaust system will need to be getting rid of a lot of gasses, so you should do it properly, but as a very short term solution it can be done

    with the CAI dont bother with the neuspeed, its not the best, either go ITG or Evoms, maybe twintake as well, they are the 3 best so wouldnt waste your money elsewhere

    for mapping, id recommend Evolve, have a lot at my sig and youll see my sepc and what its producing on stage 2... very impressive numbers and drivability

    if your wanting that sort of grill... the only way is to get an RS6 grill and then get a bodyshop to custom fit it for you, a fair bit of work, but looks the nuts!
    Factory: Phantom Black S3, BOSE, RNS-E, Adaptive Lights, Interior Lights, Auto Lights

    Added: Evolve Stage 2 Map, Evoms CAI, Milltek TBE Non-res With Special Tips Now At 360bhp & 385lb/ft, VWR 4 pots, H&R Springs, H&R Spacers, Sachs Clutch, '09 Rear Clusters, Pressed Metal Plates, TT Air Vents

    To Do list: Now that would be telling

    People have retro-fitted RS4 grills (the honeycomb kind), but it's not an Audi option. Check the FAQs sticky at the top of the forum, that'll answer most of your questions. And welcome!

    Bulbs turned up today and I fitted them this evening and all good. No bulb errors and they aren't too bright either. Not bad for a tenner!

    As said here, you need the optics and black mirrors too on Sprint if going black wheels IMO. Checks it...



    It's looking good though bro.

    The LEDs I ordered didn't work, and now the original bulb ones don't work either. I tried both LEDs first and it didn't work so swapped for one of each and one combination worked, but now no combination works and neither do the original ones. FML.

    Bit of an update

    Got my grille, lower trims of bumpers painted black. Debating wether to paint the fog grille's same, or just coat them in gel :P

    I've got a Milltek on order too. All needs now is CAI, Service, Cambelt, Front discs and pads, rear pads and a remap

    Appologies for the poor quality

    Looks good mate, i bet you are loving the sound of the Miltek.

    Quick question, did you body shop have any issues with painting your grill? Are you happy with the final result?
    I took mine in last week to get a quote on having the grill painted and I was told that they wouldn't be able to do a very good job and recommended I buy a new grill that was already painted.
