    Well went to my local scrappies today to get a ecu for the brother in laws mr2
    but as I arrived noticed few more Audi A3's in
    and to my luck 5 1.8t oh yes I had to have a dable
    so started with the look for a head light switch a mine is getting worse for wear
    so got myself a nice clean one

    then I lifts the bonnet to see whats what grabs a few bits I needed, grabbed the maf as looked pretty new, few bulbs, and the I see this little red T piece, so took it off don't know what it is but think it could be something to do with the N bypass
    n249.jpg

    then the MRS cherps up its got a back box on, so goes to have a look and was a home made effort, BUUTTTT goes to the front and what do I find but a nice 3" downpipe and decat whoop whoop whoop and all for the price of £18 quid with some other bits I grabbed bargain

    there is also a rather nice full leather interior in one of them aswell, not to my liking, but if there is anyone on here after one let me know also if there is anything anyone wants as I will be going again at the weekend let me know

    yeah it is mate, my mrs was trying to get me to get it, but im not a full leather man
    if it is still there at the weekend do you want me to take a few pics for you, it £100 for the full interior but if its a barrow day its £50, plus vat, but obviously you need to get it ha

    Wish we had a place like that down the southwest! looks like some awesome finds. The tee piece doesn't look anything special, looks like it's got a check valve built in to it, can buy a normal tee piece and some silicone hose off the bay for under a tenner for the n249, probably a bit better than using 2nd hand stuff

    If you go could you keep an eye out for a Bluetooth module, and a SB driver's front door seal?
