Wasssuppppppp just picked up my new WHippperr
Been a while since ive posted because im DRIVINGGGG to much ..and working ..
When i purchased this car i asked audi not to prep or valet it in any way other than set the nav and register the keys ..
Got the car home and had a long fun weekend cleaning her .. Started with a foam wash,Steamed,2 bucket wash/Foam ,Dried and inspected ... Paint was in tip top condition .. Few contaminents on the surface from sea salt iron fillings ect . Went around claying the car with a mild clay . Also plenty of quick detailer used . Washed again . Dried then inspected again , Zero marring from clay so straight on with protection .. This time i used jeffs acrylic werkstatt kit which is a sealent other than a wax .. Sealants do more for a white car than any carnubaru wax could do as i have now seen for myself..
Rain-x on the windows ... WOW does this stuff work
This took around 6 hours ..
The sealant looks fantastic a few weeks on and beads water amazingly still..
Havnt got around to sealing wheels yet as im unsure whats happening with them.
ITS Soooo good to be back in an s3 after a 5 months wait after selling my Black one..
Loving the colour but it did take a while to adjust
I much prefer the grey tint of the colour in the shade rather than the pearl white in the sunlight . But dont get me wrong its still AMzinggg
Ive just had the car lowerd on h&r monotube coilovers . This piece of kit goes slighty lower than the blisteins which is what i was after .
... I think my previous blisteins pss10s had the edge on the quailty tho .
H &r antiroll bars , Always a must
Mirrors painted black
Led lights all round after fiddling with resistors alot
Once again the lowering and roll bars transformed the handling completly. Truely is astonishing the handing on this car
Heres a few pics before and after lowering
Spacers needed badly ^^^^
The next mod i choose to do was install a light weight battery as the stock battery weights ......wait for itt 16.5 kgs .. Its the same size battery as in a land rover discovery..!!!!
There were plenty of diffrent batterys to choose from : Diffrent weights , CA ,CCA, AH ahhh it was all so confusing ..
Finally got there and purchased a braille battery . Weights 5.2 kgs !! Excellent
Heres a comparison picture of size
Here it is installed .
The great thing also is that the stock battery cover still fits , And its all removable without a mark incase of warranty issues ..
The only thing i have to be carefull about is leaving the lights or radio on when not using the car As the Amp hours on this battery is 17 where as on the stock battery its 60 !!
Next mod required alot of diffrent resitors and bulbs (thanks toby )
Number plate lights ...
Orderd first set off ebay . Apparently pure white at around 3500k hmm more like bluee
Orderd a metal set off ebay as advised (due to heat )and they matched up perfectly
Next things on mind are :
Removing rear seats and having oem carpet installed
Evoms CAI with heatshield (waiting for ko4 model)
Turbo back de cat non res milltek (on order)
Forge diverter valve (will purchase when remaped )
Forge spacer valve (waiting to install)
Giac or revo remap (very unsure)
Upgrade xenon bulbs which are D3S changed for pre facelift model (not released yet)
Currently im very unsure on wheels ...
I nearly went for a set of Dymags but imo to costly
Volk progressive me
Oz ultra leggeras
Finally narrowed it down to either a set of speedline turinis like jonnys powder coated black or having the stock wheels powerd coated black with a set of 10mm spacers ..
