    Evenin all

    Just thought i'd pop in and say hello. As the title suggests I'm a newbie who has finally saved up enough to get the car I've wanted for years, my 8P S3. I've posted in the welcome section so I thought I'd say hello to all you 8P owners.

    I've attached a pic of my new pride and joy. It's a bit dirty but I've already been on to Jen at Juicy for some Dodo Juice shampoo and some wheel cleaner. Once my finances have recovered I can then think about the RNSE, bluetooth, phone prep retro fits. It's all ££££!

    Merry Christmas to one and all!

    Cheers people

    Yeah, I'm loving the 8P3 :) . Think the remap can wait a bit - the step up from a 1.6 Corolla to a 2.0T S3 is still proving fun. I think I'll wait until I get bored with the S3's standard power before I think about the remap (which could be a while as I still giggle like a schoolgirl when I put my foot down).

    Oh, and I had a levely nights sleep cheers Monopole :laugh: - although I gotta be honest...I'm off to check the VIN to make sure what the hell is sat on my drive right now...

    Looks great mate :) You don't see many in red.

    Get used to the power before you mod it if you have stepped up from a 1.6 Corolla, I guarantee you will want more power before long :)

    Very good advice.

    I got some very similar advice from the guy who built my Cosworth engines.....he said,take it easy,get used to it and learn it before trying too hard.
