    That escort looks very familiar. Does it have a v8 under the bonnet?

    I can't believe the **** that came out the filter, what's more scary is there is a lighter next to the cup of fuel :asskicking: :D

    Went to Autostyle to collect a set of 19" BBS CH wheels for a bud's MK5 but they were sold out, so he said he wanted my wheels, and ill never let a opportunity pass to get a new set of wheels :grin:
    So the deal was done and I got a new set of 18" audi RS6 reps with brand new tyres.

    Looking good! i think these wheels really suit the silver s3! They look as if they fill the arches nicely. Good job!

    Ahh that's not good mate, when you get to give it a good drive and plenty of boost let us know what you think/prefer in comparison to the twin side mount inter-coolers.

    Collected my new OEM pump yesterday, made a nice big hole in my pocket. Damn Quattro spares.
    [​IMG]

    Old pump out
    [​IMG]

    New vs old
    [​IMG]


    Level sensor transferred onto new pump
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Now I can remove the noisy High flow inline pump I fitted to help with fuel delivery cause the old pump was not pushing enough pressure.

    Picked up a set of AP RACING Seat Sport calipers for a decent deal a month ago. Now have some free time to give them a refurb.
    Test fitted to check clearance on wheels.
    [​IMG][/quote]

    Stripped them part to make cleaning alot easier, also got new jointer lines made up and new bleed valves with nipple caps.
    [​IMG]


    Filthy
    [​IMG]


    2hours into the one caliper, used Paint stripper and a wire wheel on the dril, got some new dremel bits to get into the hard to reach places.
    [​IMG]


    Much better
