    Really nice Ian!!

    Are you located in Cheshire somewhere? I know it says Merseyside but I'm sure I spoke to you about your red S3 back in Jan 2008 when I was looking to buy on?

    I'm really sure it was you. It was absolute red with black leather and 118k. It was a close call between yours and a facelift model in Sheffield which I eventually bought because I ripped the blokes arm off (he needed to sell it due to divorce). At the time I was looking to buy one you were going on holiday?

    Well i've had no interest for the two weeks its been on so i'm sort of not expecting it to sell !

    Don't mind keeping it, just costing me way to much in fuel :(

    You have done some very nice mods to your car and you should share your knowledge and experience with everyone.

    LOL I know I'm very ashamed at myself, here are some more pics to redeem myself.

    I rebuilt the engine at 90K miles and this is what I found after I took the head off (Only run on optimax/Vpower and oil changed every 3k)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Glad I was upgrading things cus the turbo flange had a nice crack in it as did the oem manifold, didn't cause me any problems though as car was driving faultless prior to me stripping it.
    [​IMG]

    AGU head purchased and old bam parts transferred, new valve guide/stem seals etc.
    [​IMG]

    Baffled sump
    [​IMG]

    Head & manifold painted.
    [​IMG]

    Staggering the new rings (I was impressed the pistons were in near perfect condition and you could even still see the cross hatch on the cylinder walls after 90k miles, The engine has never required top ups)
    [​IMG]

    New oil pump

    yes they are only replica ones, 8 x 18 and et35, the only down side is the diamond cut lip has already started to corrode and the wheels are only about 14 months old so a refurb will be due soon, probably be painted vauxhall star silver 1 as it looks good and very bright.
    im not sure what et the vw wheels are but im sure they would look better as they look to have a deeper inset.
