    Hello all!

    I'm Lee and I am now a pround S3 owner!

    My S3 is a Imolla Yellow 2000 210 model. I have fitted a set of RS4 reps and have ordered a set of spacers and koni's to get her stance sorted.

    Not sure where to go from here with it, I think I will start preparing for a remap, uprating the diverter valve and fitting some samcos.

    What other things would be a good idea to sort up before the remap?

    I thought of fitted one of thoughs CAI from Ausome GTI, the carbon fibre one's, anyone tried them?

    Anyway Great site! Thanks for having me!

    congratz on your purchase and welcome!

    the first on the list for modification really should be brakes, as they're incapable of doing their job well in standard form.

    Agreed. As you have the suspension sorted, brakes should be on your list.

    Also consider a FMIC..

    Oh and welcome to the Forum /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    FMIC = Front Mounted Inter-Cooler

    If my insurance company / spare cash let me do anything, my list in order is as follows:

    1. Brakes.
    2. Suspension
    3. R32 ARB's
    4. FMIC
    5. Performance Haldex controller
    6. mtm or AMD chip.
