    The Spec clutch is what I've been using for the last year.

    I don't think you'll go wrong with it.

    Tough,light on the foot and reliable.

    Jesus Christ, lucky b***ard, have you robbed a bank? Lol

    My S3 is very basic inside, person who owned it before me obviously couldnt afford the extras so I too would 'like' FBMFST, bucket seats, sat-nav but no way can I afford them :(

    Gonna keep the car for at least another 2 years so maybe Ive got time to save right.... Up to know Ive gone for performance but very jealous at reading this set-up.

    Nice one anyway boys, flay the flag for us S3 drivers and drop me a PM big harty if your ever back up here in Manchester so I can have a look at this beast ;)

    Very glad you're enjoying it.

    There's a really good car in there that just needs a remap and some other mods to bring it to where it needs to be.

    Nightmare mate!

    Thats the only trouble with these cars, its a hard temptation to fight off the urge to occasionally boot it....

    I suppose the only good thing is youre still on the road right, 4 years of having eyes in the back and sides of your head now ;)
