    Cool Hey

    I joined up a few months ago but never had the chance to post, better late than never!

    Some people on here may know me, some don't, for those who don't my name is Lauryn and I'm from the Glasgow area

    I started off driving a few years ago with a Megane Coupe (not even worth mentioning really) before swiftly moving on to a Lupo Sport, and then my S3 in August last year.

    Here are some pics of the Lupo just before I sold it:









    And this is the S3. This is about a week after I bought it (with the addition of rediculously small plates, now replaced with some legal plates with the gap):



    Interior:



    I wanted to keep it OEM but just get it looking immaculate, so I made a few changes.

    LCR splitter (need to take those screws out the middle!) and a nice polish:









    Wheels powdercoated (before the laquer, not as shiny now) and four new tyres fitted:



    Bought some Eibachs:



    Also fitted some genuine chrome mirrors, replaced all discs and pads, serviced it, and MOT'd for another year, and it currently looks like this:







    I really need to take some decent daytime pics but I'm always too busy during the day!

    All C&C welcome.

    Thanks
    Lauryn

    This could probably do with an update...

    Some daytime pics as promised, cleaned/polished/waxed/sealed etc



















    Then came my S4 Avus wheels in time for Edition 38







    All waxed and polished to see it through the winter mornings

    Most recently, the car has now had a full respray, LCR splitter removed, new sideskirt on drivers door replaced as the old one had loosened, new badges, aero wipers, and a full buff and polish by the bodyshop, me being very pernickety as per. I'm very happy with the work, because of the cold weather and overwhelming workload at uni I haven't yet managed to spend time detailing the car as I'd have liked to, but all in good time. Some pics taken a few weeks ago:







    Thanks

    And I'd love 45+ mpg! I averaged 29.5 mpg in my 8L, the new one will probably be around 20 for the first few weeks, max! Haha.
