    Looks minted. I've just got myself a sprint blue S3 last week. Feels so much nicer than my old S3. £16,500 was that a dealer you got it? I got mine for £12,900. 64k cruise control, sat nav screen etc. Mind you I did buy it off my brother and managed to talk him into a cheap price lol. What's your plans for it now?

    The TFSi engine injects directly into the cylinders,and thus the inlet valves are prone to getting coked up with whatever rubbish enters from the breather systems,and in particular,the PCV breather system.

    A catch can takes out most,but not all of this muck before it hits the valves.

    I went for that 1 mate... For as much as anyones gonna see the engine bay anyway, I like how it pops... All stealthy then that bit of red 's' to make it stand out a wee bit from normal... Was thinking bout doing it in the spint blue to match the car, but glad I didnt now...
