    Joined the S3 Group at last

    Hi guys/girls i have finaly bought a audi s3. i was going to buy one in june but got persuaded by my family to buy a audi a1 185 because i live in a small town and i wasnt 100% happy about it as i wanted a S3. But about 4 weeks ago the A1's gear box started messing up and i was glad to have an excuse to get a second hand S3 . They offered to fix the gear box as it was under waranty but i told them i didnt like the car and wanted a S3. So after a week they found me a second hand S3 09 plate with only 24000 miles and speced up to what i was looking for. when i got the car i instantly loved it and its been putting a massive smile on my face since. i have had it remaped by revo stage one and am planing on changing the wheels to these :- 18" AUDI S3 (04-ON) BBS VZ Alloy Wheels Only | eBay would like to see what you guys/girls think about this and would love your feedback. i have only got these 2 photo of my car atm and will be taking more soon.

    JKM / Forge / FR&R / JBS / regal are all good for engine mods.

    DPM are great for suspension mods.

    There are a few other members buried within the forums who can help you out with bits and bobs, so fill your boots and enjoy it; lovely car!

    IMO the stock S3 wheels look great in silver as standard but they just don't look right when sprayed black or grey. Not sure what it is but I just don't like them like that. Must just be me though as a fair few do it. Only problem with the BBS wheels is they can look a tad small in 18's.

    yeah not to everyones taste sparying the stock wheels black but i think they dont look to bad but will prob get the bbs i know what you mean might be a tad small but was going to get these fitted to my H&R LOWERING CUP SUSPENSION KITS for Audi S3 Quattro 8P - 11/06-> - 40100-1 - Lowers by 25mm/25mm [H&R 40100-1] | e-Parts.co.uk car since its the best compramise between springs and coilovers what do you think?

    Hi guys/girls little update on the mods progress i have just had a TBE system from milltek but went for the resonated system so it wasnt to loud. Milltek advised a uprated engine mout aswell. Also i got told you have to have a stage 2 remap because you have to make the ecu used to having the sports cat. I spoke to Richard (oscarli main man) and my mechanic Steve long and hard about going for a oscarli stage 2 remap he said with the milltek system you will loose abit of low down torque but get more bhp up the top of the rev range, he also said the revo maps turn the boost up way high and with his remap he dosnt turn the turbo up to much because he wants the turbo to last abit longer. He said that the max BHP should be at 5800 RPM and the rev limiter he moved to 7200 RPM he didnt put the rev limiter to high because he wants my engine to last longer and not get damaged same with the turbo not having to high boost pressure. with regaurds to a revo stage 2 map (not stage 2+) it wont be to much less bhp or tourque. This is what i wanted because even tho i like the revo maps i wanted it to have a little less pressure on the turbo and engine. So i took the car out after he had finished all the mapping i took the car out and am very happy with the power like he said it has more power at the mid to top end of the rev range its great. Richard is a great guy and very noliagble about what hes doing and will answer all your questions also he came all the way to my mechanics work place because he wanted to make sure the ecu was set up just right so he is a top guy.

    here are some photos of the milltek system on:-













    very very happy

    Cars in today was driving through traffic yesterday and when I dipped the clutch it would keep the revs at 2000rpm or rev between 1200-1700rpm. So Steve is looking for a air leek or will take the throttle body off and see if it's sticking. Has anyone had this problem?

    I have made a few videos of the s3 with the milltek resonated system fitted so people can see the difference between the resonated system and the non resonated system hope that helps oh and also a bit with the forge dump valve as well enjoy.
