    Good day guys,

    So I recently bought myself a A3 Sportback 1.8T FSI S-tronic.
    Coming from a 6R Polo GTI there is a lack in power but not to much, nothing I am sure some mods wont sort out.


    Only options I took was the pano roof, S3 rear roof spoiler, bluetooth and leather.
    Not really liking the standard rims, looking at a set of Bentley 19's or the RS3 rotars 9's.

    I have changed the interior lights to LEDs (CANBUS so no errors) however the number plate LED(also CANBUS) gave me an error on the dash. So I removed that.

    I will be following the A3/S3 8P threads closely for ideas. Such a pity that I am in South Africa, it seems there is alot more aftermarket products available for the 8P that side of the world.

    That is all:yes:
