    No idea, but for any advice/work make sure you have a word with RK Engineering at St Agnes. (Presuming you are in the Pasty county!)

    The closest meet I think which has taken place recently was when 3 S3's just happened to parked within the space of 5 bays at Sainsburys Truro earlier this year! Well up for one though if it can be arranged.

    One of guys at RK (pretty sure it's Simon -who part owns the garage) has an S3 and has done a few mods to his. The guy knows what he's talking about and I'm sure they'll charge you a hell of a lot less than any dealer.

    They also do CC remaps if you've not had one yet!

    (I'm located in Grampound by the way!) :thumbsup:
