    lol, well wiring is wiring, whether its in a house, car, boat or plane.

    As far as the wiring goes with this, its very very basic. All you have to do is put pins into connectors. I got my kit from vw teeside and it came with the guide. The info that it was missing i found from various forums.

    Im an electrician by trade, but i didnt really need to do anything special.

    Theres loads of threads on here about it.

    The hardest bit is just getting everything off to fit the stalk and run the looms.

    Also my ecu had security bolts which wasnt fun.

    Well obviously its not, but at the end of the day, wires are wires if you get me.

    Worse thing with cars is just getting to them.

    Looks a lovely example mate. Ive not long had custom code fitted to mine and can safely say you wont be disappointed, especially with the additions you've already fitted.

    thanks! i did just give it a good detail so it doesnt look like that all the time :p

    I find silver hides the dirt alot more than any other car ive had.

    Silver is a great colour on the S3. Try to refrain from putting a splitter on.

    How did you get past the shearing bolts? Thats the one thing I get through on mine. Can't get to the ECU so no cruise at the moment. :( Everything else is fitted.

    Get a reasonable size metal drill bit and go to town on them.

    I used a punch to make a small indent on the head so the drill didnt slip around much.

    Although i had to drill each bolt from two angles to get them off as i used quite a small drill bit - bigger the better really. Try and cover the area with a blanket though, the metal gets everywhere.

    Thanks everyone, its nothing different to all your cars.

    This forum is much friendlier than most of the others i have used! :salute:

    Just got back from having custom code installed.

    Im blown away. Pulls so much harder right up to the redline, and so much less lag.

    Very happy !!
