    Here are a few of mine, 2003 b6 s4 :D

    And my 1997 Impreza sprint car i spent 3 years building, 2.1 cosworth stroker engine, massively ported/polished and flowed heads with cosworth 272 deg cams, built to run high boost, ppg straight cut dog box etc etc, unfortunately it has been broken up and sold over the last couple of weeks :(

    And on the dyno, she made 558bhp and 448.4lbft @ only 1.8bar, at around 21-22 seconds into the clip when it comes on boost you`ll hear a pop and watch the engine lift out of the bay around 6" inches, that was the nearside engine mount giving up the ghost :D
    She never got to see the 2.2 bar boost she was built to run unfortunately, after fixing the mounts i couldnt justify spending any more money on her for a month or 2, i then decided to break it.

    So you're one of the few people who the s4 feels slow for then, and relatively cheap too? Ha! The s4 looks great.

    That subaru looks so nice too, shame you had to break it. There does come a point when you can no longer justify spending pennies though.

    I was rather surprised at how quick it felt for a biggish car to be honest :) granted the subaru was in a different league, i had a syvecs ecu running 7x different maps all selectable via a dash mounted rotary switch, lowest setting was normal v power 1.4bar and this was still 435bhp, the highest being v power/16% methanol and 1.8bar, 558bhp. In top map when it came on boost it was like it was trying to kill you lol, she was totally stripped and lightened so weighed next to nothing so power to weight was amazing.
    As said map 7 was highest bhp and mapped for general use, map 6 was the mad map ;) the boost profile was set to allow max boost to come in all at once, thats how i understood it anyway, mapping baffles me lol, anyways ill show you a map 6 and map 7 dyno graph that will explain it lol.

    Map 7, nice smooth curves ;)

    Map 6................fecking mental
    [​IMG]

    This was the map we were working on for sprinting, lag was not an issue due to running a strategic launch control strategy, 1.2bar at 4.2k rpm sitting on the spot, also with the anti lag sustaining around a bar boost and the clutch-less up shifts on the dog box the power was constantly there and was absolutely crazy :D

    I would have paid to have a ride in that subaru! It just sounds mental.

    Interesting that the s4 doesn't feel too bad though. I still want one, just depends on jobs over the next year etc.

    I would have had to charge as well mate, at around 4mpg it was a tad thirsty lol. The s4 is far more refined than any other car iv driven, the power is instant and it just pulls and pulls, it could be a bit more brutal acceleration wise but i enjoy it none the less :)

    4mpg? Haha, that is mental!

    I keep looking at a4's on auto trader but fear they're a bit much for a mum - mobile. Shell have dinged it in weeks.

    No, just a lot of money for it to be driven 80% of the time by her, I rarely drive our car as it is. This is a woman who had no idea she kerbed the wheel the other week ha!

    I was waiting for that question:laugh:

    To be honest mate no........ive had cars in the past that i lowered but towards the end of owning them i found them abit too harsh on the comfort.
    Im fast approaching 47 so comfort is more important for me even though being lowered looks great.Im happy with how it stands.

    That would of been due to the shocks though. Eibach are renowned for retaining factory ride comfort, or at least very close to it. If Eibach springs are used with good standard shocks then I'd be very surprised if you found it to be a lot harsher ride than the standard set up.

    Very clean S-line style. Slightly larger exhaust trims would set that off nicely I reckon

    Have those stickers and mods been placed for comedy value, or to make the driver look like an absolute twonk?
    If the first then fair play, if its been done seriously - have a word with yourself.

    No offence.

    Couldn't get rid of a hyundai coupe I had.. Swapped it for the probe.. Not the best move as that's even harder to get rid of especially now ive let the tax and mot run out

    I finally got around to giving the recent purchase a quick clean. Not to the highest of highest standards (needs a go over with a clay bar desperately) but it's clean enough to post up a few pics.

    Yes I know the exhausts are too small but I'm holding back on the modifications until I get the gutter corrosion sorted under warranty first. Once that has been sorted let the modding begin! I would like to achieve about 225hp on the standard K03 and injectors but we'll see.

    You honestly thought selling a ford probe (which aren't exactly the most sought after car as it is) that's stickered up as lightning mc queen would be easier to sell than a Hyundai coupe?! Mot/tax or no mot/tax....... Lol, (no offence)

    Just picked this up today and I am delighted.

    54 plate 1.9 TDI 130 Sport (6) Avant.

    The colour is lovely and the spec is nice. Very happy.

    Sorry for the phone pics.
