Sorry mates, but wheel a little dirty
So, the question has to be asked, is that a real S3 (I'm pretty sure they're not available in the US)?
Looks great! However i dont think its real as our friends over the pond don't get the S3.....dont know why though, probably emissions regulations or some other dumb reason!
Looking good! Very aggressive with the optic grill. What mods does it have? Enjoy the car
Wow... 19's AGAIN!!!!.. I'm getting seriously itchy feet for these...
Looks great S3 or Not.. could easily have fooled me,
Looks stunning, but what's with the brake discs?
very very nice i love it ....id love to have an s3 sportsback
Alcon brakes = Alcon for those of you that don't know make the new RS6 brakes. Can't wait to get my side skirts and rear valance on mine! Looking good my man
Very nice looking motor.....
I'm pretty certain I spotted some S-Line badges on the rear doors....
Indeed you did Jon!
Yeah I hadn't heard of them before but I mentioned it to my mate and he said "Yeah they sound like Alcons. They're expensive!"
I didn't realise they were little grooves on the discs, I thought they were painted on lol
Ooh, gold star for paying attention, well spotted.
Alcon = Some of the best brakes around = WRC items!!!!!!!
Mmmm, that's a bit saucy!
In the parallell universe where I didn't go Munich...I have an S3 SB like that
looks the shi**!!! loving the brakes! make me melt
I would like to see the roof rails on it , as i have a 59 plate S3 sportback ( pics to come soon ) i am just about to have them retro fitted.
haha, emissions regulations in the USA... made me chuckle!
Plus you can't get S3 Sportbacks can you?
Course you can, where have you been?
Errrm, at home....
tell us what mods you have done to it.. obviously the brakes (which are the best looking calipers n discs imho) and wheels.. but i see an h&r sticker and it looks dropped..??
Think he's dropped it on springs, be interesting to see how much the brakes cost, alcon are excellent and underrated brakes.
lol ha ha ha !!! funny that ..
But yeah you can get an s3 sportback ...
theyre well expensive!!!
H&R coilovers, APR ECU, Milltek exhaust, HPA GEN IV Haldex, HPA DSG Flash, RS6 FBMFSW, Neuspeed RSB, Alcon 355mm brakes, VMR 19x8.5 et 48 wheels with Yokohama 225/35/19 tires
Why have you quoted your own post???
And is it an S3 or a 2.0T?
After looking on all the USA forums, this is the only facelift A3/S3 conversion in the US. We envy you guys as we all would love to have S3s. I am working with HPA to install their FT425 kit. Since I am so far away from their facility, I am coordinating with a local tuner.
I'd rather have TT Shops RS4 brakes fitted for £1800
arnt rs4 brake's known for warping , the geezer who used to have the white rs4 on here didnt rate them ....always advised on different disc's ??
Really? I don't drive hard anyway, so they'd be alright for me, whats the latest with you..
Nothing as yet got to put the car on auto trader but cant till next week as im that strapped , done my head in this year nothing but doom and gloom ....
Accept the new's that the misses is having a boy So it's all good n tha hood ..lol
Now just got to get a small lottery win and i keep the car .. wishfull thinking but you never know ... didnt you end up getting the bucket's nate ??
Nope, they flopped, guy didn't sell in the end, but I will get some, don't you worry lad.
Its a stunning motor, wonder how it would look with a dagenham backdrop (joke)
Is that Hugh Hefners crib (not a joke!!)
You omitted the term "LOOKALIKE".
It's not an S3 conversion until you replace the motor, in my book.
Don't get me wrong, it's a lovely looking car, but even a REAL S3 with a standard 2.0T engine (flashed or otherwise) is not an S3 any more.
I have to say I agree with Keith. It's been said before and this time is no different. It's not and S3 unless it's an S3.
