    Well for the last 4 years ive been a great lover of volvo t5's but the time came where i was getting tired of seeing the bloody fuel station. So i pondered for weeks about what to get and i decided on an audi tdi or golf and after a while i was offered an a3 from a friend of the family for a song and i took it. Well i just love it to bit's the fuel economy is great and it is nippy. I wont ever be going back to a volvo i am afraid. It needs a few little job's doing but it's getting there. Over the last two weekends Ive fully corrected the paint work and overhauled the suspension bushes. A little more to do then i will get some pictures up for you.

    I wouldn't have minded a diesel A3. I just need to get mine on the road properly first though.

    Any plans for it? A remap would make it even nippier ;)

    My dad always had Volvo's so I've quite a respect for them, and that was when they were boring, until the T5 was launched...
