    Hey I I've had my S3 2 weeks now, really pleased with it so far! Can't wait to start modding and get some extra power!

    My first mod was to extend the iPod connection as I use my iPhone for music and didn't want to mess about putting it in the glove box!

    I am waiting for LED sidelights and number plate bulbs to be delivered.

    Then see what goodies I pick up from GTI International at the weekend! Hopefully a revo intake! Then I will be going for a stage 1 map in a few weeks time.

    Nice colour, I haven't seen many of those around. Just bought mine a month ago too and I've already added over 1k on the clock (I normally do around 100 a month!). I was impressed with the power too, what you thinking to up the power? Stage 1?

    What lead did you use to extend the ipod dock in the glovebox. Ive got a similar dock in mine but don't know how to make any use of it?

    Should it work with an iphone 5s?

    What is TPMS??

    The silver button is indeed push button start out of the RS4! :) and that is a very old sat nav disc! Lol where's the best (cheapest) place to get an up to date one?

    What does it say on the button right of the hazard light switch?

    That push button looks cool seen a guide for that somewhere.

    You can get backup/copy SatNav discs off eBay. They work just fine.

    Sweet example of a car, you have got some decent options there.

    Did you have a valve G before? If so, why the change?

    No the 1 that was on it ended in C so I'm guessing the rev D is a later one

    Ahhh so you were the guy that bought the valve just before I got there!! Haha I was buying revo intake as you were having it fitted. You bought the only diverter valve they had! Lol I think your old diverter valve will be spilt then so you will have been loosing boost. Have a look at your old 1, when you pull it out you will probably see the rubber bit is split

    Nice colour, lovely example! I'm envious of your air intake and that RS4 push start!!

    What's the view on this push/start then?

    I'm not sure if it's worth the hassle of taking out half the centre console, when my key works fine :rock:
