    Hi Folks,

    My names Chris, I live on Orkney, Just moved over to the 8p side, picked up my 08 plate Red S3 yesterday, still have my Black 8l lol. I was wondering if anyone on here used to own or know the previous owner of the car, the number plate is OY 08 UVT it has a number of mods and id like to find out all that's been done. From what I can see it had a Dbilas CAI, Full Milltek Turbo Back with sports cat, some sort of map but not sure which one, some sort of suspension mods (not had a chance to get the car in the air yet to have a good inspection). The car goes like a rocket its like night and day compared to my 8l, i did test a standard 8p and it felt slow compared to my Stage 1.5 8l. Il get some pics up when i take it for a run to some nice photographic spots.

    Chris

    I'm heading up to Orkney to stay with family in July so I'll keep my eyes peeled for a red S3.

    Enjoy!!

    Hey folks sorry I still haven't got photos up yet currently away in Trinidad working, I have a wee question, the car seems to have lost some performance, I haven't had a chance to scan it with my mates vcds yet. The only thing I've done to the car is fill her up with octane plus booster, when I got her I filled with v power but we don't have any high octane fuels in Orkney, could the ecu be reigning in the engine because of the weaker go go Juice?

    Some pics of the car whilst it was in the showroom at pickwick performance, Nev the owner of pickwick is a top guy , very knowledgeable about audis, took the time to show my better half How to work the rsn-e and how to set up bluetooth With her phone.
