    However, there was a guy in a Passat Coupe with ideas above his station who steadfastly refused to let me past...

    Mr Brembo sorted that small issue out.

    I've had mine on Knockhill, what a blast!

    Only had a chip and springs at the time so the brakes and suspension left a bet to be desired!

    Would love another crack at it now!

    Take it it was a top marques night David?

    No, not last time I looked...
    Dave's car has a different registration number to mine...

    I know I've been spending a lot of time driving / playing with my GTI lately...but I think I'd have noticed if the S3 wasn't parked in the garage. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif


    There was an outlandishly large sum of money appeared in my bank account recently though...hang on a minute... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/idea.gif

    Wash your mouth out!

    I have no time for such trivial wastes of time...I could be better spending my time improving the already fine handling, or getting even more than the current 330+ lb-ft of torque out of it!

    Honestly...tyre shine!

    I must say.......sorry to go on, some of the best looking wheels ive seen - MADE EVEN BETTER, loving that powder coated finish!

    Where did you get/create them Ess Three???

    Im in love!!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/1luvu.gif

    They are the factory optional wheels for a TT!

    8" wide, ET33, 18", made by BBS and affectionately refered to by the manufacturer as 'their masterpiece'

    Lighter than the originals, and stronger too...also the perfect width for an S3, in my opinion.

    I split the wheels by removing the 15 7mm titanium bolts, had them machined to allow for clearance after powder coating (it's thicker than paint...or the lack of paint applied - or not, as the case may be - by the manufacturer), then had the rims done in a bright silver powder coat and the centres done a sort of pewter, high sparkle finish powder coat.

    Once bolted back together they do look damn fine, even if I do say so myself...

    The only problem being that they are an Audi part only - not available in this fitment from BBS - so they are pricey...approx £450 per wheel all in.

    Another of the wheels in question, on the car in question...not sure if it's Dave's car or mine...can't see the 'plate!
    Looks like mine...the seat's too far back for Dave's car...him being somewhat vertically challenged, and all...

    Oh, now that hurts!

    5'11" is positively vertically challenged when compared to normal people convincingly above the 6' mark!

    I may well be rotund (OK...I am!) but it's a sign of good livin'.
    BTW, your waistline is expanding you know...you may try to hide it under your woolen jumper or padington bear coat...but it's growing! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Aww, I didn't know you paid such attention to my (possibly) expanding figure...

    Please note, that you are now dissing Barbour's finest "Paddington Bear Coat" which gives me the right to don a tweed shirt and shooting jacket before chasing you through the woods with a pack of dogs - and I don't much fancy your top speed...

    My other half did. Which is potentially more serious, come to think of it...
    What's going on here then?...
