    Get a powerflow quad rear exhaust box and you`ll fool everyone into thinking it`ll be an S3...After all there are no real big differences to tell them apart.

    The money he saved over a S3 means he can spend it on a stage one for his TFSI and he power walk the walk.

    Its not the car, i just need summat to chuck the fishing gear and the dog in so i can drive up and down muddy farm tracks and also throw the pheasants and ducks that got in the way of my shotgun on the passenger seat, Tried a Discovery but the A3 suits my needs better !!!!!!!!!!!

    I have been thinking of doing this to my A3 for a while. Do you have links to the parts? And do you know if its easily reversible, as I will have to revert it when I hand it back?

    Not the sort of thing you think happens pre-delivery! I'll keep my delusion that mine was wrapped in bubble wrap & cotton wool with an armed guard right up to delivery day........

    Me too!! I've taken delivery, so mine will go back to being wrapped in bubble wrap, and tucked away in the garage until this rain has all gone! I think I'll be using the wife-to-be's car for work tomorrow if this rain keeps up! :)
