    Hi chaps thought I'd introduce myself in the b5 section and to say hi to Scott is his natural habitat :)

    I'm Dane Im a regular over in the 8L section, I used to have an s3 and after a few hybrid turbos failing I decided to sell up and get this bad boy :eyebrows:

    However the previous owner decided that, after looking after the car really well, he'd give it to the £5 a wash people... And they ruined the paintwork, so I now have to get a heavy paint correction done :(

    So today we gave it a good clean and hand polish

    It came out pretty well, but it's still needs a lot of work.

    And the noise;

    Plus it's the quickest thing I've ever been in or driven, I haven't been brave enough to turn the ESP off yet... So unbelievably quick!

    It's 466 brake
    With 3 inch downpipes
    Milltek
    Uprated arbs
    Black optics from factory

    I haven't managed to clear the s3's space on the drive yet though ;)

    LUSH!

    Good choice moving from the S3 to a proper car too ;)

    It has to be about the perfect combination too, Black, B7 Rims, Hightech interior.

    Yeah I might do, but they might not be wide enough so they could be up for sale in a bit.

    Thanks dude, it is pretty smart, I'm not massively keen on the b7 rims either, but the seats are nice and grippy

    I haven't really had a chance to feel the proper quattro difference, one step at a time ;)

    Dane, you should have noticed straight away mate. Still a compliant comfortable ride, but grips like snot to a tissue. With progressive understeer on standard suspension layout.


    Hmmmm, I think it's time i went for a blast in mine.lol

    I can't see why you can get a converter.
    you can go from 110 to 112, why not got 112 to 110?

    You can, 8ls are 5x100, Westy has adapters for the same change, but I don't think the offset is going to be low enough to use them with the tarmacs
