    Not sure if this is in the right section but cant seem to find a members car section!











    Favourite pic



    Few goodies waiting to go on, H&R springs EBC rear dics and yellowstuff F pads! for some reason the front discs didnt turn up at the same time as the rears! hopefully will be here tomorrow so can get them on the weekend..



    Got lots more planned going to finish off the exterior 1st.. then stage2 it and see how it goes powerwise from there.. sure i will have a garrett on there soon

    Not long had the s3.. and im loving every minute of it!!

    few pics of my old car which i p/x in for the s3... regal tuned vxr! wont be everyones cup of coco but i loved this car .. wasnt to bad (in the dry) when it was on the road but 80% of the time it was in the garage! was pritty nippy!

    I notice you have the front window wind deflectors on both your cars, where did you get them from? A3s suffer from water ingress badly when the window is open a crack, and i reckon this would be a good way to prevent it.

    Car looks good chief!

    Nice S3 mate but I would definately but the rear rings back on - maybe even black?

    The S3 badge looks lonely without it

    I agree, black Audi rings would look great

    yeah thinking of getting another badge and getting it sprayed black! mainly because its left a slight mark where i took the badge off! i do quite like it myself without the audi rings!

    Very nice mate. You clearly like your black rims and they suit both cars. The Vauxhall looked good too (and I don't say that very often! Lol)

    Look forward to seeing pics with the springs fitted

    Black wheens on an orange car is the perfect combo imo.

    little update!.. not done much but i have begun spending now

    Forge CAI


    Forge DV


    Scorpion Cat-Back


    I then took the car down to streetwise-automotive (Bristol) for revo stage1 and i couldnt recommend them enough very professional down there! and they will be doing all work on the car from now on!... also over the moon with how the car goes! its very comfortably quicker than an e46 m3 all day!

    Forge coolant/DV re-circ hose


    EBC discs/yellowstuff pads/orange calipers/black hubs


    LED sidelights


    LED drl


    8000K headlight bulbs & foglights removed


    Then decided it was time to lose some unwanted interior!


    the amount of weight what comes out the back of these cars is mental lol! and it does make alot of difference!

    heres a recent delivery from BSH

    Southbend drag racing clutch


    Autotech hpfp


    BSH heatshield


    few pics of exterior.. not really any different yet!.. H&R spring still not fitted yet as thinking about going coilovers!



    Still got a few goodies waiting to be delivered so will keep you updated!

    How much was the clutch and where did you get it from? Any good?

    How hard was it to fit the coolant kit? I have it here but just waiting for the right time to get it fitted!

    clutch was approx 1k mate from bsh its not in yet but there meant to be good alot of the big power golfs etc run them including jonnyc etc! coolant kit havent yet fitted all the hoses! just fitted the easy ones! there are 2-3 which looks quite awkward so just going to leave them to my tuner to fit i think!

    no reason mate just that the forge one can come polished if wanted.. and think the bsh one is only black!

    should both do just as good a job as one another!
