    Sad to see you go paul! your regular posts were very helpful to me when i first joined 10 months ago, you were always very helpful, and i got loads of knowledge from you.

    what are you getting next?

    im VERY interested in the 312mm brake setup you have! and possibly the S3 strut brace and EIP dog bone. im currently doing a ko3S swap, and the standard brakes just arnt up to it!

    I'm also thinking about moving on...

    If I do it will be something newer if not brand new.

    I'm thinking about the new Cupra, with the new BTCC bodykit they look ok and with basically a detuned S3 lump in there capable of over 300Bhp it would make one a bit lively :)
    Failing that, possibly a Mk5 GTi.

    I love the 4WD and will miss it a lot but I can't see anything newer with the same kind of performance with 4WD under 20k (Excluding EVO's and Scoobies).

    Stewart - I had a look and a test drive of the new Cupra R, I was VERY impressed.

    Uses R32 brakes, so they are already very decent, and the dealer had a deal going with a remapping agent and would deliver the car with 303Bhp....

    It seemed fairly decent, and the rear doors are cool as!
