    Hi folks, i've been looking on here over last few months, so not really new. Just got my ass into gear and finally decided to post.

    Bought the car back in December, and still over the moon with it.

    No big plans as such, been there done that. Hoping this would be a car i'd be completely happy with, and no need to 'upgrade' anything, just keep it clean, serviced and drive it!!

    I'll edit post with some pics, when i've re-sized them.

    It's a 52 Reg, BAM, Avus wheels and Silver. Sure you all know what they all look like :icon_thumright:

    Thanks, Lloyd.

    Welcome to the forum mate. Yeah they're awesome cars even in standard form when they're running properelly and not costing you money lol! Sure you'll be tempted soon by a remap... even if it's the only thing you do it'll bring a huge grin on your face like it did me. :)

    Good choice Lloyd, welcome to the site.

    S3's are great cars to own and modify in my experience and pretty darn reliable too. I've had mine for over five years and have improved it year on year with various mods and she just keeps getting better and better.

    Thanks guys.

    I am pretty determined to keep it standard, only thing I have thought about is stage 1 remap. Is it a big gain in terms of driving, I know rough figure is around the 240bhp mark. Anyone recommend anyone near York/Yorkshire?

    Yeah mate need to update my sig really im not on here too much anymore, im in a mint 40k nogaro blue 8l now. I did sell the red one to raise funds for an 8p S3 but decided againt it in the end, im going euro (ish) with this one though.
    ive seen some wheels which i really want which are http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270562112081&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT
    slammed on coilovers with the mirrors etc all black to match would look nice i reckon

    Its pretty standard though atm and it'll probably stay that way until after ive been away this summer but i have got big plans for this one...
