    Hi to all, after 23 years of car ownership, have finally got around to buying an S3!
    Been a member of many forums before, but not for many years, hopefully I'm not too old now to be a newbie! :huh:
    Been browsing the forums for a few weeks now, and this seems the place to be for best advice and guidence.
    660 mile round trip picked her up
    I'm not planning big BHP (heard that one before!), car is mapped to 270ish at present already, plan is to make mint to calm my OCD!

    More pics and progress to follow....

    It certainly could have been worse! But the 7 hour drive back was long enough for me!
    Why is the car you want never just down the road!!
