Does this even get traction hahah
Gave 'Ray' a good wash today, and got the 710n dv through from Stoke Audi.
hope you got behind my ears
Took off the baileys dv and put on a new 710n dv from Stoke Audi. The car is now no longer whooshing and chirruping on gear changes, more civilised for everyday driving!
Another wee update...
Got my black wing mirror caps, that I won on eBay, on yesterday... Think it looks really smart now!...
Oh and used the how to on here and retro fitted the cruise control, bit of a job, but great to have got it in and working!! Really nice to have...
Preferred the previous wheels and silver mirrors too. Sorry, not sure black works for the wheels or mirrors IMO. Cracking looking motor though.
Liking the black mirrors, horses for courses I guess.
Another wee update...
Got some trim bits through from a friend who is breaking an S3, namely a bit in the door, two bits either side of the transmission tunnel in the rear floor, and a vent for the drivers side. No photos of this other than the bit on the door...
Old and new side by side..
Milestone on the old odometer...
And the **** news was that I hit a pot hole on the way to work and it blew the front nearside tyre!! Ffs!
Taken a good chunk out of the nice,new to me, black alloy! Aaarrrgghh. So got two front tyres whilst i was at it as they had seen their best and were about 3mm. Beggars couldn't be choosers though as I had it in the garage across the road from work and needed it done to get home. The spare is in the car but I didn't have a jack, the kit I have discovered isn't complete and missing a good few bits!
So the tyres I put on were Goodyear efficient grip. Will see how they perform, the reviews aren't too bad. Payed £240 for two.
Here is the chunk...the white stuff is from where the new tyres went on (why do garages never give this a clean off!!)
That's some chunk of alloy missing from your wheel dude looks real nasty.. I have the same wheels, I'm painting them this w.e with black plasti dip, just wondering, is it plasti dip you used to do your wheels?
Also I noticed your side diffuser has had a lick of paint..is that plasti dip as well?
Cheers buddy, stay clear of those pot holes lol
Hi Sam, the wheels have been painted properly, I bought them done. And this goes for the side skirts too. I think the plasti dip on the wheels is best left for someone who is good at using the stuff, I'd fook it up! Lol.
Going to buy a can of black paint to tidy up the wheel.
Got myself a polo rear wiper to put on, and some oil piping to route the catch 'breather' rearwards like others have..
oh and got this off ebay... purely cosmetic...
A few wee things to update...
Got a replacement cup holder for the dash, mine wasn't springing out. Replacement rear ash tray, as mine was cracked and as a result the lid was wonky, and a wee bit of rubber trim for inside the pen holder tray bit beside the handbrake!
I also removed the rear rings and reprinted them as they needed it, and changed the rear wiper for one off a polo to smarten up that as mine had a bit cracked off.
Routed the outlet pipe from the catch can set up down and out of the engine bay and zip tied it along the fuel lines to the rear of the car. Previously it had a wee filter on the top of the catch can itself but there was a slight smell through the cars vents in the cabin, so finally sourced some piping and sorted this out! Hopefully no more smells in the cabin!
And very happy about this one...
This plate wasn't available when I got the car back in March, but was randomly looking the other day for a plate and low and behold it was now available to buy! Woohoo, just had to get it!....
Looking good Guy, I've just bought a Cupra splitter to nail on the noggy S3
Is that red audi twin turbo?
Yes Sam, couple of KO4's, and a few other tweaks!
Bit of clay bar action from yesterday! Continuing today! The tar was bad!....stopped about half eight last night as it was just getting too dark, even working with Imola!
Lovely cars... and the first lot of wheels on these pics look sweet on the Imola S3.
Do I win any prizes for having an Imola Yellow + Merlin Purple S3 on the same drive?
lovely car I have an imola yellow too. loving the look of yours mine is 100% standard atm
Well another five hours clay barring yesterday and she's finished! Gave it good wax after too! Smooth a shiney now!
Photos of it didn't happen lol
