    Hi all thought I'd say hi as I'm new to the form,
    I've used the forum but not introduced myself..sorry

    My names Marc I've recently got my 2002 S3 on the road after buying it with a snap cambelt, I rebuilt the top end got it running, ran sweet was over the moon, but!!! I then took it for a test drive and to my disappointment the diff was whining like mad, I managed to find one close by with haldex and low miles. Fitted it last night with a mate,and wow what a car now.


    anyway great job with the forum people, it's been my bible

    I agree, but some say......sticking your head out is asking to get it chopped off
