    Yes Scott, was awesome trip down. Got a lift with some hippy who ate too many sausages and bacon eggs! :p Thanks buddy!

    Power wise she was RR'd at R-Tech with a few faults and no V-Power at 230bhp, my logs today have it peaking at 188GPS at 26PSI, so 240bhp on V-Power.

    Still not been de-catted either :thumbsup:

    Somebody has put a lot of money into it to bring it up to slightly above standard s3 power :p

    I am surprised you didn't go for a facelift!

    I give this car a matter of months before it's in a kerb/hedge.

    FFS, I've been saying for the past 3 owners of this car, they're EIBACH ARB's. 22mm Front and 25mm Rear, none of that gay H&R **** with silly bar sizes.



    I like this pic, car in the background looks epic. any more info on it?

    I think it's the same one that tried to race me earlier, it was in the background then too...

    Hayes, is the "surprised you didn't go for a facelift" comment meant to be a joke?! :lmfao:

    Also, no Si. I found this image which sums it up quite nicely for the Turbo owners -

    I can't lie, we had a blast earlier, and this is slightly quicker than my track car. Around a track it won't be, but in a straight line, it's pretty epic.
    Proper S3 killer this one!

    I banned them and the sausages when I got home.
    I had to do an emergency toilet break on the way. Was not pretty.
    It was them or the tea at klappey's house.

    Thing is though, for all it's fastness it isn't as cool as your track car yet.

    Needs more pops and bangs and a PROPER filter.

    Nothing is as cool as my track car :laugh:

    Still pretty epic though dude, after 3 years of wanting one, you've finally got one, and this one of all cars too.

    Good purchase indeed :)

    Here's your A3 at the very first Audi-Sport meet at Newlands corner, organised by Nick Elvery.

    I think it was July 1st 2007, the day me and French first picked her up, on 130k. 100% standard aside from some RS4 wheels

    I'm sure Audi would have a fit if they saw what had become of their beloved dealer demo car!

    I won't bite for you Dave, you're too obvious. going to clean the life out of it tomorrow, it's not been clayed in 3 years I think! So I'll spam this thread to death with photo's then. Got the original owner coming round tomorrow!

    Me on the other hand getting an AMK engined S3 owner to lol at "215bhp" being crappy is a work of genius. (Sorry Si! :friends:)

    -

    Just found these pictures too!

    Ever wonder where Prawn got his carbon bonnet?

    [​IMG]

    And Prawns got the bumper off my car haha!

    yea, you can even see the scratch on the bumper that I've inherrited!

    Bonnet was a good blag for me :)

    That pic at the rollers is at SRD in Launceston, it wasnt running properly at all and made something silly like 121bhp at the wheels on CC1. haha. bit different now though!

    I'm glad you got it, this car and mine have been just about everywhere together in the last 4 years, with mine always being about a year ahead on the mods. That gives you roughly 1 year to strip it, cage it, and fit an LSD!
