    Dremel will fix that exhaust issue & trust me it wouldnt look to much different from oem if done correctly, if different at all TBH

    so you think that cutting the s3 valance a little should fix the problem, or is it moddifing the exhaust?

    I'll sell her on. but put the standard wheels, airbox and speakers back on/in. the wheels will be worth a couple of bob towards the audi as they are quite sought after. especially with the low profile tyres

    you got a broken thumb Nigel? :)

    It usually looks worse that it really is when you start pulling things apart! Just the worry of putting things back together without a creak or scratching anything LOL

    LOL, just looks like your thumb is bent backwards in the pic! Regarding the aircon, technically no. What does work is everything else LOL The climate control works fine its just that pressing aircon doesnt work as I never go round to finishing the engine bay parts. I have most of the stuff ie compressor, condensor & pipes sitting, just lost the motivation. The only remaining wiring is for the pressure switch, compressor, fans/relay and few wires to the ECU. Stupid as i did all the hard work!
