    if i was to get a bigger turbo from standard i would go for something that can get over 400bhp, i just dont think 300ish bhp isn't enough! Especially as you get so much lag, so you need so much more power to, make up for it! Also A3_turbo, wouldnt you be better off getting a s3, all that is going to cost you a fortune! And i wouldnt go for s3 recaros, they really arnt that good! Do you know they are the same seat that are used in Astra VXR'S???!! Also the BMC kits are a waste of money!

    Yes i know Ed ive spent alot on it so may as well finish it off to how i like it.

    If i sell it i'll get peanuts back for it so id rather run it into the ground!

    The BMC has no advantage over standard i just wanted it for the extra induction noise! Got it for a good price too.

    Im going to be looking at 250 Bhp When mines all mapped up again with the FMIC hoping that will be a big improvement over what ive got now :)

    Ed i think you should go all the way with your S3 any-one can buy an impreza/Evo.

    You can get mad BHP out of the 1.8T if you really want to!

    edward id be happy with 300bhp as it will struggle to put the power down as mine is FWD, so the whole 300bhp will just go straight to the wheels instead of transmission lossed like yours, as for the vxr seats, will they bolt straight in my audi? rear seats aswell?

    i got the bmc for the noise and i still cant hardly hear it! Yea thats fair enough! I'm gonna give up on the s3, its going to be another £100000 for how i want it, which will just not be worth it! I personally think a 1.8 is to small to to get 450bhp + out of! Reliably anyway!

    oh sorry mate thought yours was a s3 not a a3! I'm not sure, my mate used to work at vauxhall and told me the seats are the same! not sure about the trims tho, probably wouldnt match with the rest of the car! i doubt the rears would fit!

    New cambelt (and the rest) at Audi
    New Fanbelt Dampner/Tranny fluid drain at Audi

    Have you not already done that in 2007?

    For me - possibly an 8P S3 (depending on how well they depreciate)
