    Well seeing as i am asking lots of questions i thought i would post some info about me and my A3.

    My name is Ben, i have just turned 30 and grown up with cars over the last few years after wasting too much cash on modding cars. Some of my past motors:

    Makes my Audi seem pretty boring but hey ho. Recessions and growing up have happened so...

    Now i have a series 2 rs turbo i have put back from chavvved to standard and a very low mk5 golf


    Some pics of the Audi (not the best i took them this morning!)

    Spec is
    140 BHP 2.0tdi sport
    Revo'd to 175bhp
    S3 leather
    s3 gear nob
    s3 front bumper and wings
    s3 rear bumper
    s3 mirrors
    R8 Alloys
    S3 roof aerial
    Audi concert headunit
    Bose
    09 Rear lights
    HID kit on front lights

    Just bought a passenger door aluminium trim as its the only one i didnt have when i bought the car, just bought pressed plates. Really want:

    S3 steering wheel (dont we all)
    recaros (not desperate as i think they are over priced)
    Sat nav head unit, ideally something with bluetooth for phone and MFSW control
    Need to detail it as its swirl heaven

    Thats it really, and comments welcome and suggestions etc whether they are good or bad

    Looks good, whatever you do, if you chose not to go for an RNS-E head unit DO NOT buy anything made by Dynavin, its tempting to have built in bluetooth and touch screen but not worth the hastle. Didnt realise there was an S3 ariel either? thought all the shark fins were the same, could be wrong though. Either way the cars looking good...

    and i will probably hold out for an audo headunit, trying to kp it nice and OEM. Is it realistic to be able to get a decent steering wheel with controls to work with my current and a future OEM headunit?

    You need a new steering wheel! Good effort though, xenons and exhaust would finish off the outside

    Get your self over to pro speed in Cardiff, they'll knock up a custom exhaust with a lifetime warranty at a decent price. I was quoted £290 for a cat back system on my 2.0TDI before.

    i think it looks good on R8 V10s too - i've always wondered what an 8P would look like with them

    Nice cars + A3 mate, I was expecting to see a seriously modded A3 after all those pics though haha. If your history is anything to go by joining up here will not help you to save money, lmao!

    I'd say you definitely need to put S3 skirts to finish the S3 look, some xenons and a private plate. Definitely get a steering wheel bro! That one is killing your interior :ninja: Those rims look pretty good, seen them on sportback and wasn't 100% but suit yours.

    If thats a 53 car then that facelift climate will not work properly in that car mate, trust me, is it a facelift complete climate or did you mod the chrome dials on to an older unit?

    I was wondering the same nige. I've seen a few pre facelift or even pre 07 cars with the new climate now wondering how they got them to work.

    Trust me mate, they will not function properly, wiring & part changes are required to make them work, if they have plugged them in then they will think its working until you chnage air direction etc which is when it all goes wrong as the flaps arent moved properly & thus causes issues.

    Nice motors fella! Not my thing to be putting the multi colours everywhere in the engine bay, interior etc but whatever floats your boat I guess - underneath were some really decent motors. The Integra looked pretty calm by comparison...

    I'm with the others though - you need a new MFSW on yer A3. It'd also give you the control over the head unit you wanted & bring the interior right up to date.

    Good to hear of you giving back to society by de-chavving an RS turbo - I loved those cars!
