    Hey all, Well Iv finally got a S3 on thursday!

    its an 02 plate, with 85k, I had a few little problem with it so far though :( which included brake lights not working and fog lights always on, but I have fixed these 2 now! but at moment I have a split pipe!

    so getting that sorted today! so hopefully all will be up and running proper soon!

    anyway here is the spec and pictures! I paid £6200 after knocking him down from £7000!

    Brembo's
    Lowered On FK Suspension
    Exhaust Of Some Sort ( not a fan of it really, so going to look for a standard one! )
    Sunroof
    Cruise Control
    6 Disc Indash Changer
    Audi Sub In Boot

    Some wheel spacers, minus the S badges on the wings and youve got a nice looking motor!

    badges on the wings make it different and if you like them keep them...don't be like us sheep.






    BTW brake discs look a bit worn:undwech:

    Yeh tis quite low. Spacers would make it look much nicer.

    Dont like the exhaust either.

    nice car mate!!! im actually quite jealous as you have a sunroof and brembos!!! although you do have the usual black l'boring' leather rather than the prince'ley' silver cream:laugh:

    hope you get the hose sorted asap...once running correctly you will notice the difference massively

    you got that for a good price, they always seem to go for more in the grey'ish colour, plus you got some nice expensive mods on there, bargain

    Nice car for a good price, jack it up a bit though bud, thats way to low.

    I have a standard S3 backbox if you want, PM me and we'll work something out.

    thanks guys, I am actully going to take the s3 badges off the wings today as I agree they dont look right,

    I havent got the adjusters for the coilovers, so I cant jack it up at all, they looked abit corroded aswell so dont know if they will move! but little things like that will all get sorted in time :)

    Ok thanks about the backbox mate, im very interested! but also very skint at moment, so going to have to wait till next month and Illl give you a pm!

    "TO REMOVE SIDE MARKERS:
    1. get a butter knife, credit card, flat head wrapped in tape or a towel (something thin, strong and dull)
    2. wedge your object from 1 between the light and the fender on the rear side (closest to rear of car)
    3. push the light towards the front of the car while using the object from 1 to pop the light out."
