did you fit the springs yourself ?
A mate and I fitted them - very easy as we had never done a quattro before so were not really sure what to expect but didn't take long and was like another other car we have done!
We are both engineers so both very intruiged haha
any special tools required other than spring compressors ? I fancy having a go at fitting them i makes fitting a set of springs much cheaper !!! I presume there is no need to pop a driveshaft out on the front and that there is enough room to get the strut out ?
We didnt even use springs clamps but we did take the drive shaft out at the front which is dead easy
You just have to take the calipers off and pads, undo the bolt holding the drive shaft, then pop it out. take the 3 bolts off from the top and release the drop links
Looks nice Boydie, not sure on the dodgy number plate font?
The font is Metro font - would be the most popular style over here
Thats explains alot
Guys!! Just back from one of the best weekends of my life so far! Edition 38!!
Guess what I got
great pics, car is lookin as mint as ever!
Looks awesome mate
Please pass on the specs of your mate's camera dude!
I found it quite cool that I just walked past your car and realised it was yours by the specs/mods
this dude knows how to take photos...
Thanks guys - I will ask the photographers what they are using!
Good to meet you briefly staz - did you stay the saturday night?
looking good boydie the more i look at pics of your car the more im fancying chs for mine
No mate I went back to my dad's for the rest of the weekend. I will have to stay over for one of these events though.
Please let me know about the camera mate. I'm looking to get a DSLR camera soonish as my normal point-and-shoot doesn't cut the mustard anymore.
Also interested in camera spec mate. Was looking purchase either the Panasonic FZ28 / FZ38. Would love a DSLR, but a little out of price range I think.
Boydie car looks wkd mate! Very clean and tidy. I do like the back plate aswell, very cool. I do love the Sprint Blue colour
Your car looked nice all weekend mate
Nice to meet you also Boydie, didn't see you on the sunday, do you still want the VIM @ £80, and you pay postage to N.I? If not Jules wants it, just let me know either way lad.
Nate - nice to meet you finally also, I was proper dying on sunday and I hardly appeared for the show haha sorry about the media thing, go ahead and sell it as I am not ready as yet to get the RNSE
Thanks very much for the offer though
Thanks for the comments gents! one more rolling shot!
What is it you're selling?
Video In Motion Staz.
Yeah but what? A disc?
Boydie - Your S3 looks the nutss!!! CHs - looks like they were made for your S3!!! Looks mint mate
Im tempted by one but not sure on the 2.5k a year insurance being as young as i am :S
No its a media adapter sorry, you can get the hack off vagoc. Media adapter will allow DVD/PS2 etc..
Looks like a really neat pakage! Congrats!
£2.5k??? holy **** lol I am 24 and paying £880
Thanks for the comments gents.
Next on the list is one/two of the following:
Yeah I was confused as I knew you were trying to sell Boydie the adaptor the other week and VIM is just a hack.
Don't fancy an after market set up again?
I love my bose man, couldn't be without it.
My bad :icon_thumright:
If you dont mind me asking which stickers have you got on rear screen of your S3 .
The club that I went with is called 6YC - 600 Yard Crew. Don't know why lol but the "founder" has good contacts with Edition 38 so we got a few privileges! So that is the pink sticker.
The white sticker is this:
Sorry for small pic - I cannot find a larger one and the original is on my laptop
Basically, we had a theme to follow for the trip and find a random sticker/picture online and put it on the car
I found this swine flu sticker - just a picture of a pig crying, saying "my bad" - it got quite a lot of attention!
Nate - can't put bose in without rewiring the whole thing so might down the line go aftermarket again but I have sold the majority of my ice so far
For those interested in the camera equipment used for the shots I'm guessing it's as follows:
Boydie will prob be able to confirm how true this is.
Canon Eos 400D
Canon 18-55mm Lens
Sigma 70-300mm Lens
Canon EX430 Speedlite Flash
Remote Shutter button

Thats the very one lad he is a talented boyo!
Latest installation got it locally for very good money - its a 2008 model. Have to sort the telephone module out though with vagcom - it works but doesnt yet show on the screen!
Looks great Boydie! Any more plans for the interior?
Nice one mate. When will your Nav be for sale?
My nav that came with the car?
mmmm was not planning on selling it though - are you interested?
benskin - more or less, thats the interior done. I want the 2009 headlight switch with the chrome knob next but I think I will get some sort of media adaptor so I can have dvd's work and full ipod control!
Next on the list though I think is H&R ARB's
Yeah i was about to say your interior seems to have all the mods you need or would want lol. The 09 headlight switch chrome knobs be a nice finish. I think Nate selling some sort of media adaptor or he was selling one a few weeks ago. How you getting on with your S3 fuel wise?
Yeah, I was to buy it at edtion but i was not sure at the time if I was getting the rnse
fuelling it does not bother me any more, love it too much!
Got 400miles to a tank there coming home from northampton and that was with the remap and having a lot of fun in the tunnels coming through wales!!
Now though back home, going out and about into belfast etc... I have noticed a slight drop but I am now using more super and noticing the bills
