    Great looking car Rob, welcome to the S3 club :beerchug:

    Just a bit of advice, if you are planning on fitting an oil catch can then dont bother with the TTS cover as it wont fit properly after the catch can is fitted.

    Sounds the same as here.

    I'd left a few Cosworths behind,had a few diesels in between,and then bought the S3....which was going to stay stock.

    Mine fits perfectly - had to trim the hoses slightly and space the small bottom lug screw with washers (Y)

    That's a good price though to be fair, was the Boxster really that bad?

    to be fair they are good cars but you really have to rev the nuts off of it and it felt really underpowered, started to miss a turbo!. didn't particularly like the gearbox or the steering and decided to get rid after only one month. £475 a year tax and nearly £1k for disc and pads (which needed doing in the coming months) for just the front didn't help the wallet either.

    Nice colour, actually considering selling my recently bought Imola Yellow S3 to get a Spring Blue one.

    Recent purchases are decent too.

    Nice looking car! Sprint Blue does suit face lifted cars well. I had the Pre F/Lift in that colour, used to get so many comments on it. What's your profession?

    just a quick update, got the revo stage 1 map this morning, and it really transforms the way the car performs. not just the power but the way it puts it down, decided to go for the much more linear file so it pulls right through the rev range and not just one big lump of boost (which was also an option) was in and out of SCC in half an hour! saving for the next few mods and then onto stage 2+ hopefully by march/april! thanks for reading, Rob

    I thought you would enjoy that!

    The car just feels so much better when it's been mapped,so that should make a good Xmas present.

    All the best.
