Thought I'd better put up a little thread for the latest addition to my car history! Bit of a back story but after quite a few different Seat's, VW's and Audi's (pics available on request!!) I finally got my hands on what I thought was the holy grail, a B7 RS4 Avant in Sprint Blue with buckets:
Well that ride was short lived due to the fact that I found it quite frankly boring, so I decided to shop it in for an S3. Found the one for me and made the treck to Bradford to collect it. Not before speaking to the previous owner who I tracked down by the power of google and the wonder of forums! Anyway here are some pictures (all pics taken on iPhone so apologies!):
Home from collection day:
Then the fun began.
First on the list was to pop it up to the boys at Storm Developments for a set of new front discs and pads oh and some Matte Black CSL style reps. 8.5x18 et 42
Then wanted to fit my Alpine touchscreen and boost gauge (loving the brand name!) so got busy with the tools one evening:
Next on the list was to re-enable the Revo so we popped over to see the geezer that is Mr Warren Cox. 15 minutes later and the magic was done! Thanks again to Warren for being a top man as always. Revo with the help of a full TBE Miltek transformed the car completely and I'd say is as quick as the RS4 if not quicker.
Then things got a little more serious as I popped it into a local bodyshop for him to smarten things up a bit. Grill, Fog Grills, Mirrors and rear valance done in gloss black. Oh and respray the front bumper whilst he's at it:
Next mod, not to everyones taste I'm sure, was a plate:
Then I popped it back up to Storm Developments for a set of H&R Springs and new top mounts and this is how it stands today, Phase 1 complete:
Phase 2.....coming soon.
Cheers for looking.
