    A few pics of my old 1.8T quattro sleeper. Uprated fuel pump and injectors. A few people had nasty surprise when they tried to cut me up. Just because it has a tow bar and no badges on the back doesn't mean that its slow. Sounded better for having an S3 exhaust fitted too.

    Engine code was ARY. Its a 2001 180bhp quattro sport with 70,000miles on the clock. The car wasn't standard when I bought it, hence I'm not sure on the injectors, other than them not being standard. It was fitted with a
    Viezu map. I believe it was a generic map and needed setting up properly to unlock its full potential. The car was quick, but not good on fuel. I did look at getting MTM to set it up on their rolling road, they did a nice job of dad's S5 sportback. I put the S3 exhaust on it when the factory one was blowing. Rather than spending too much money on it I just upgraded to the 2.0TQ B7 A4. These photos were taken hours before the car was sold, hence why its on the standard wheels rather than my 17" TT Ronal wheels. It was a lovely drive, but the A4 was a good buy and has a lot more toys on it.

    This is my A3 130 TDi sport, the idea was to create a sporty diesel along the lines of the LCR Tdi or Golf Anniversary TDi and Fabia VRS TDi, but an Audi equivalent.

    Sorry the pictures are rubbish I only have a mobile and nowhere decent to take pictures today I will get some better pictures up one day

    Thanks damo. I know the feeling.

    I got them from eBay after posting a thread a while back. They look wicked and come as a four pack. Front and back. Check my photos, in sure that I posted a load of pics somewhere.

    A guy from hamburg, Germany, takes mats and stitches Them together and the fixings are oem. Dani must have seen an old post as I posted his email address too on asn. He can do just fronts or single sides.

    I'll grab his details and post again.

    Thanks dani. It's nearly finished and I'm happy with it. Needs a good clean but the sun gave me the idea of taking a few new pics.

    I'll grab the details and post,pm them over. The German guy is cool and the product is immense. Everybody loves them when they see them in flesh. Very oem.

    Sorry dani. Forgot to Answer this. I kept the original gaitor but used the new gear knob. Felt that the old leather matched better and just jubilee clipped old to new. Works and looks perfect without making a round peg fit in square hole etc...sold the new 8p leather gaitor for a few bob. Job done.

    Looking forward to doing the gauges on Tuesday to see what the hybrid is doing when I plant the power.

    Hi Everyone, please take a look at my S3 here https://plus.google.com/photos/108252577206566005558/albums/5718988706663634609
    tried to post pics to here but for some unknown reason it wouldnt let me.
    This is standard for the minute but in working progress, i have a CC Remap, Milltek exhaust system with decat pipe, green panel air filter and Forge 007p being done at the end of the month then hopefully front mounted intercooler well hopefully if everything goes to plan.

    Cheers Olly

    Looks tidy Olly, nice motor there! Best colour! :beerchug:

    In terms of photos, add to your profile and then copy the url from the uploaded pic one at a time into the photo url request screen when it comes to adding. Easier to explain by phone but there are stickies to explain it better.

    as clean as i can lol after i took that pic i noticed a couple of bits i missed underneath :p

    the joms are nice not too harsh and handle really well both with and without the arbs. I dunno how low it is really. the back are wind down to the bottom and the front i guess about 50mm could probably do with another 10mm but i got scared of bashing my sump! lol

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for the great comments mucho appreciated, she is still a working progress but but have lots of ideas in mind for her.
    Luckily for me the weather was nice today and i also had the day off work so it gave me chance to give her a good clean and polish, so i have taken a few more recent pics for you to have a look at.
    https://plus.google.com/photos/108252577206566005558/albums/5718988706663634609

    I am after a Audi S3 battery cover if anyone has got a spare lying around that they would like to get rid of as its quite annoying me without one in my engine bay.

    Nice looking A3 dave she is looking gleaming if i must say so, what polish are you using to get a shine like that.

    Cheers Olly

    P.s hope i have added the URL link to the pictures right Jimgrimm77

    urs is also very clean looks like a nice example u got there!

    i use autoglym super resin polish and collinite 845 wax. Chemical guys wheel guard on the rims. The black paint really does polish up well on these cars!
