    Morning all!

    I bought an Imola yellow S3 in February this year and have already done a fair few mods with a load more in the pipeline :)

    So far mods include;
    • Refurbed 18" TTRS wheels with brand new centre caps
    • Tinted windows, medium on the front, limo on the back
    • German alloy pressed plates
    • Tinted rear lights
    • Forge FMDV008
    • Green cotton panel filter and "wak box" airbox mod
    • Forge silicone oil breather pipe
    • N249 & N112 bypass
    • Lots of blue silicone goodness under the bonnet
    Coming soon;
    • Reconditioned gearbox
    • Sachs single mass flywheel, and clutch (rated to 388lb ft)
    • 3" downpipe, Decat and custom 2.5" exhaust
    • Forge front mount intercooler
    • Stage 2 remap (probably R-tech)
    Coming sooner; (ordered)
    • Badger5 TIP and full induction kit
    • R32 Golf front brakes
    • Parrot Asteroid bluetooth stereo
    I'm aiming for 280bhp, if I get that, I'll be very happy :) Here are a few pictures to show it's progress so far;

    Hope you like :)

    Lovely looking car mate.

    May want to consider the xs manifold if your going for 280bhp aswell as a b5 tip

    It's less restrictive compared to the OEM manifold. Same goes for the badger 5 tip. Not cheap but worth it from what I've seen
