    Hi all, Here goes...

    Below is My Dolphin grey S3., I brought it about a year and a half ago as as a non-runner (leg out of bed).

    Swapped the BAM out with an AGU engine with fresh head gasket, valve stem seals belts etc. and the threw the ebay special K04 in the bin so no more engines got destroyed :).

    I've also fitted the leon brembos, KW V3's (now for sale), KW rear arms, 18" XXR wheels with Khumos, plate and a few other bits and bobs.

    Then I brought a B3 Audi Coupe Quattro and got addicted to the noise of the additional cylinder, so I threw a 2004 TT 3.2 engine in and the cruise control along with it which I didnt have before.

    Last week I brought an air ride kit and fitted that on Friday. and thats about it for now. I just need to get some paint sorted and I may be happy. (Apart from the lack of boost).

    Have a look!

    Firstly, that's awesome! Secondly, did you do it all yourself? Surely you spent a fortune doing this?

    Cheers guys!

    Yeah, every single thing myself in my spare time (apart from paint). Like to get my hands dirty now and again, I'm kinda sad :)

    Its all been done on the cheap where possible, not been in any rush to buy anything really.

    The car itself only cost me a grand, so it hasn't cost that much really :uhm:.

    I guess I'll have to do something new to keep this interesting!

    You haven't seen it up close mate! Paint lets it down a bit, although I try my best to keep it clean. (hate spending money on paint! I can't take it off and resell it!).

    They're multifit, 5x100 & 5x114.3 :)

    Hopefully mate, Is it your car that PSI tuning did the conversion for? Sure I've seen a video of it somewhere!

    Mine are the for the 9.75 wide, With a 225/40 tire on, thats the limit of stretch that I dare to go to. make sure you check your clearances if you run the 9.75's on the front, I have about 2mm of clearance between the rim and the strut :happy:

    I've been looking at GoPro's but I'd rather save my money towards turbo kit. I'll try and get my girlfriend to hang on the roof and video on her phone! Sure she will be game :)

    Awesome! I once considered a 2.7 twin turbo swap but the sale didn't went (me buying a complete front end 2.7 TT)

    The arches looks larger for me, have you done any work on it or it just looks wider in the pics?

    It's @olspeed mate, Whats your username?

    Cool, yeah I'll try and get out a bit this year, where are you heading too?.

    I was running a stainless decat but I hated it, It was so tinny. Don't get me wrong, flat out it sounds awesome, but the rest of the time I kept thinking the exhaust was blowing.

    Well if any of yoou guys want to chip in and help me live the dream, feel free. CAD jockey doesn't cut the mustard at the minute.

    Luckily I'm an engineer, not an Engrish Teechar :)

    Et20 those are bud, Although I'm struggling with clearance now due to the airlift struts being slightly larger diameter body than my KW V3's.
