    Dolphin grey s3 build thread

    I am now on my 3rd Audi after owning 2.0 tdi s line dsg 1st and then 2.0t s line dsg both were great cars and I knew I would always stick with an Audi, my old car was 2010 s3 replica as some may know but it wasn't quite an s3 so sold it over a month ago and same day went and got my S3, soon as I seen it I knew I wanted it, so 1 hour later I was driving it home an loved every minute of it, the spec is as follows
    2008 dolphin grey 36k miles mint condition
    Buckets
    bose
    Sunroof
    FBMFSW
    rear pdc
    symphony II+
    Auto wipers/lights
    ipod dock
    Aux in
    bluetooth
    phone prep
    anti-dazzle mmirrors
    light pack




    then after 2 weeks of owner ship this came through the post

    shark remap is absolutely awesome, really get a lot more power for the money, this is how car should
    come from factory.
    Then couple days later all my interior LEDs come incl light pack ones with number plate LEDs
    Excuse the window

    I was now getting annoyed with the symphony as i used to have rnse in last car so ordered one this week and it came yesterday. I also won cruise control stalk for £24 all in bargain. So went to Audi today and picked up my cowling to support cruise so today I set out installing rnse and cruise control all In all was pretty easy, took me about 2 hours to do both and loving the interior now.



    the car is exactly how I want it at the minute and don't have much funds after buying the car a month ago and buying all this but am sure something will pop up lol

    Great car and wonderful colour make sure you fit MY11 rears in near future as the one fitted look bit dated. Planning to go stage 2 soon?

    Another little update got forge twintake today and fitted it straight away, took it for a drive and I could tell Instantly it pulls a lot better to the line very impressed with it. Sounds are kept to a minimum which I like, doesn't sound like dark vader is in the glove box like my old 2.0T with the k&n typhoon CAI, but love the sound of the dv when I change gear too lol.

    Also took a few night pictures with the white LEDs look so much better

    car look great, those seats and steering wheel make a big difference to the interior

    The photos do no justice for the paint. saw a Sline TDi in the same colour yesterday and it looked beautiful

    Appreciate all the comments, since last update twintake was taken off as the misses didn't like the sound when she was driving around tut lol but other day I had a facelift climate control but it didn't have heated seats like I do I so just changed the switches over and followed the thread by itwasntme. Very easy to do, I am also wondering if it can be done to the headlight switch also as I can't find the one I need anywhere lol.

    Quick pic of my climate with new switches
