    So you bought it off Ebay then? As the pictures have got the Ebay watermark on them.

    Looking good though.

    Welcome.

    That's not an eBay watermark, it's Photobucket who do picture hosting. Ebay use them but it doesn't mean it's necessarily ebay.

    Hi JayR, Xenons are standard equipment on all Audi S3's bud, but you have the facelift versions fitted onto your car. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif
    I'm curious as to what strut brace you have fitted onto your car though?

    Hi there mate, really nice looking car, those wheels look the business. I wish I'd been more adventurous and gone for something like those myself.

    I'm in Aberdeen and there is another guy on here with an Imola S3 from Aberdeen too.

    I've had mine just a little longer than you and I'm loving the car as I'm sure you are! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif

    I'm sure you will enjoy the site, there's a wealth of information available and some very knowledgeable people happy to give advice.

    If I was you I'd be going to Jim at star performance. He's a lot closer to you and from what I here he is the boy as far as Audi's are concerned, also he will map the car with any characteristics you like i.e. smooth power delivery or aggressive boost spike etc. Probably the most performance tuned car on here with a standard KO4 turbo (which used to belong to Ess_Three but is now in the hands of David_R) was mapped and developed at star.

    I'm in two minds as to going to star or having mine unichipped by dastec.

    People have varying opinions on this but I think it is at least acknowledged that AMD's power at the wheels figures are over estimated!

    I certainly wouldn't drive all the way to AMD when Star are that much closer.

    Yes, my eyes are deceiving me, I have an early 99 S3 which doesn't have a strut brace either, but the pic of his engine bay looked like it had one (I think /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif) /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/angel.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush2.gif .... I will hopefully have one this time next week though /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Love your engine bay mods. Any chance of some more (closer) pics to see the detail.

    Especially like the engine cover and 'S' detail on the 'bit at the front' (sorry, not mechanically minded at all /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif - that's what the garage is for!)
