    Favourite 1.8T car in the world!

    You appear to have forgotten to mention that it's got over 600bhp :laugh:

    Did that somehow slip your mind :racer:

    This car is an absolute animal :)

    Really think you should turn the boost right up on the dyno one day to and see its full potential as im sure its still got plenty in reserve

    Ps please get a passanger seat in there for when I collect mine ;)

    Make sure you check those front wheel bearings and hubs on a regular basis though..

    But I thought that S3 arches were the Arc De' Triomphe of motoring beauty? :superman:

    Do you think Bill just got these off the shelf? Man up and make a set for an S3; DO IT!!!! :)

    Was going to say, the arches are available to everyone.

    You just need to hand craft them yourself!

    you just need thin slitting disc, some sheet steel, mig welder, cardboard, grinder and some small amount of filler and several hours of cutting and a shutting, and viola... kindof - lol

    i wouldn't of looked like an audi sport net member due being in my mates polo gt40 instead of my s3. Had a look under the hood whe you had it open to see what a 1.8t could look like if I had the money and what a beaut it was!

    just normal ibiza one.. Beware however the neck of the master cylinder vary so they do not all interchange.. as I found out when having to replace mine previously when it melted.
