    Alright the madness has got to end....lol. Since starting this post way back when I have managed to rack up about £1500 worth of goodies, (inc. retro-fitting foglights, armrest) also repairs (injector amplifier at Audi) and other little stuff such as hours of elbow grease on the car. I have decided (and hope) to halt any such obsessive behaviour until later in the year. Yes, when I have finished cleaning the MAF, throttle body and fitting my new Audi mats this weekend, (and stop obsessing about a new bumper to match my recently respayed front bumper) that's it..... Just intend on enjoying the car! That is, unless somone can find a reputable company to chip my Auto tranny A3.....!!!

    Guys I have to agree, i am on this website all the time and have to check it regularly during the day!!!

    Luckily i work in IT and i even got our IT dept to unblock the website so i can check it all the time!!

    My missus goes mad at me every evening when im on the site.....

    As for the car, i am not as obsessed as what i used to be, I used to have a Mark2 Golf GTI and it used to get washed at least 2 times a week, inside and out, glass used to be sparkling, it was Alpine White and I always used to get told the car looks like new, which made me want to keep it up, as i didnt want to get a rep for having a dirty car...lol

    If i had the time nowadays, the S3 would have the same treatment, but unfortunately not, so for that oh lovely car....I AM SORRY...x

    Thats it i think :)

    I think Im obsessed as well, I check the website every day and when Im bored I have a quick browse for anything new.

    Had the car for a few months and spent a few hundred just on cleaning products.

    ive washed the car in the rain and recently when it snowed LOL.

    started off with small pedal mods, mats and side repeaters and looking out for new alloys, gearknob and spoiler.

    I think I will be lazy and buy myself an already modded S3 so I wont need to spend this kind of money :)

    Well around this time last year i had 3K of childhood savings come to me, was meant to go straight in another savings account for a house.... its now gone and it has all gone on the car , so at the end of last year decided mercedes wheels had to go to fund the ko3s etc to save spending even more, now all thats done, i couldnt resist and have just bought some new summer bling rims:whistle2:
    Thank the lord for credit cards lol!
    Its stopping after them thou.... honest.

    Also agree about the missus, She went went nuts last year about how much i paid for the mercedes wheels, and that was before the refurb,tyres, bolts and adaptors lol. Oh and noone tell her that remaps are actually more than £100 ;)
