Yet another ASN member moving on....
Well guys, I've done it.
I've finally given in, and sold the audi to buy something more exciting.
I bought it 2 years ago when my Mini became too mental for the road, and I've spent the whole time trying to make it more interesting to drive.
I've done the ko3S conversion, S3 brakes, shocks, springs, ARB's, bushes, just about everything I can think of, and it's ended up a GREAT car.
It's very fun to drive, and runs rings around a standard S3, straight line it's dead on par with a mapped S3.
It looks good, sounds good, goes well, and stops well, but I've been getting a little bored, and fancied something RWD.
As you well know our former best friend Dave swapped his A3 for an M3, and after a short drive a few weeks ago, it was clear it was an educated choice....
Whilst it does feel more dated inside, it has all the same equipment as the audi and more. It's a damn sight quicker, and handling is a lot more solid.
RWD with the LSD is also very nice, it feels like a proper drivers car, it's a rewarding challenge.
I'll still be around here though, I've built up a fair bit of VAG knowledge of the past 2 years, and I like it here, so I'll probably stick around!
Anyway, enough rambling, here's the new motor:
