    @justinA3 - im in CPT, not working for ATM, i am friends with the owner & tuner in CPT :) how come you ask? the AGU is good as they are the big port head with stronger rods :) i personally have an AUM motor. you must do a Ko3s or Ko4 upgrade on the AGU and you will have a monster ;-) cheers bud

    dislexi kicked in Meant AGU , got a Ko3s ready and waiting , buying everything i need bit for bit due to budget .lol but as soon as i have everything i will start with the transplant.

    so might take me a year or so .

    in the meant time i was thinking of doing unichip to get a little more power out of it.

    @ JustinA3 - yeah mine will also take a while. if you would like to chip the stock motor,you wont get much increase but if you going to chip the turbo then you will deff feel the difference :) things are damn pricey here in SA buddy. If you look at UK,USA etc there parts are much cheaper than we pay. Sucks big time haha. You know of any good places to look for Audi parts? Cheers

    hey man , i will be staying in noordhoek , hoping to relocate to there in the near future. what you are asking for is so scarce for the oem part. but auto styling sells a exact fiberglass replica. im going to go that route. im looking for a rear S3 bumber.

    @JustinA3 - Lowest iv seen one OEM S3 boot spoiler for is R600 but was in JHB at the time + had to spray it silver to go with my car :) should have done it i know i was stupid. The S3 back bumper + front is very hard to find here in SA ive noticed. also been looking out but never spotted :-( Noordhoek is a very nice place buddy :) hope you have a safe trip, i will have a look at Autostyle's website today and see what's happening there ;-) Cheers bud have a good day

    Well Guys
    Made some small interior changes yesterday, I got my hands on a bit of Alcantara material.

    And gave my door cards some new life which was looking rather shot.
