    PROJECT S3.2 (my progress thread)

    hi guys
    some of you may know me from the 8L page and my progress thread
    Project quattro / Don's track toy
    i recently broke my perfectly good 350bhp big turbo track car which ran 12.7 1/4 mile sub 4 sec 0-60 and 170mph top speed!

    the plan was to sell my daily driver and break my track car for spares to fund a new project something a little more practical as i now have 2 kids and run comrades of vag and running a track car is a very expensive hobby!!

    the car that i brought is by no means perfect and had been pretty neglected by its previous owner but im more than happy to bring her back to her former glory and further but the price i payed really does reflect that but shes low mileage and to the untrained eye shes a beauty but i have a list of thing i want to sort out and ill be hoping you guys will be able to help me over the next few months!!

    whats been done already

    decatted
    remapped and derestricted
    full S3 everything in and out
    FBSW nav plus 6 disc changer


    so far i have done
    sorted an oil leak between cam cover and sump
    fitted a new clutch and flywheel
    2 new droplinks new pads
    K&N air filter
    S5 alloys
    my11 rear lights

    Things on my list
    nav plus sd card reader
    nav disc wont eject
    rear speakers are not working
    FBSW buttons dont work
    boot trim missing
    engine dressing
    lowering
    and eventually a supercharger

    original S3 wheels had to go they had stretch tyres and the wrong offset and were fouling on the suspension on full lock.
    so i had to put my old track day wheels off my 8L whilst i was shopping for new wheels

    Supercharger sounds interesting, but the wheels dont suit mate imho, you could do better, but good luck with rest of mods

    Nice car mate. Yeah I'm not that keen on the wheels either - go for some 19" RS3 Rotors! The MY11 rears are such a great mod, they look immense at night. I find myself sitting in traffic with my foot purposely on the brake just to give people behind a nice sight lol

    Just a quick one: "custom made drl's which will look oem" how are you going to go about doing this? i want DRL's in mine! Mine was one of the last pre-facelifted models and im trying to find away of getting the "face-lift" look without spending major £££! Look forward to your reply mate!
