    Well ive bit the bullet and put a few pic's up of my pride and joy. It is not a patch on 90% of the cars on here but hey here it is. I am running on a very tight budget at the mo. Ive had the car 2 months and already ive resprayed the bonnet, front bumper and refurbed the wheels. All new suspension as when i got it, it had coilovers on it and they where the cheap ebay ones and they where a little tired. Full service inc. cam belt and lot's of other little bits. Lots to do yet but money is a little tight at the min due to the other half expecting in the new year. The springs are currently eibach but are getting changed next week for H&R's as i want it a little lower. Thanks guy's

    Yeah man, wait til I put pics up of mine....then you can laugh.

    I'm basically standard with an unlacquered NSF wing and enough scratches to believe its been washed with grit! AWESOME! I'm on here to make it nicer though! :)

    Tidy car dude!

    Tidy mate!, nothing wrong with that at all.

    See if you can get some facelift tail lights off the bay though, cheap mod and really livens the back end up a bit. The pre facelift ones are gash, I was glad to get mine off.

    Looks good though, the wheel colour suits it down to the ground too.

    I'd rock that (with some proper number plates though ;) )

    dan, car looks nice - don't knock it mate!
    have you got another car to run the sproglet around in? let me tell you from experience that the s3 is a bit of a pain for getting little uns in and out.
    in all honesty it is not too bad but we have a 5 door astra and that is SOOOO easy compared to the s3.
