    Yeah its a bit of a shocker but i have decided i want to move out and buy my first house. At 22 years old i cant have both so the car is going unfortunately. I am more than happy with what i achieved the car was seriously fast and ran a 12.7 1/4 mile so im quite happy to move on. Still sticking to VAG but im thinking big power sleeper (Lupo 1.8t) :sly:

    probably a two bedroom semi :laugh:

    Cheers Davie

    Sounds like you have your priorities sorted Davie which is a good thing. You will always be able to buy another fast car like the S3 again in the future.

    Yeah thats the plan, once im a little older the insurance will be far more reasonable aswell so i think im making the right decision. Its going to be weird going back to torque steer and wheel spinning lol

    Not much to be honest off the top of me head:

    Concert Head Unit
    H&R Springs
    Catch Can Kit
    Charcoal canister Cover
    Bonnet Bra

    Think thats about it lol...most things were gone in a matter of minutes. Im surprised the springs haven't sold as they make a hug improvement on the appearance and handling of the car, they were one of my best mods.

    Cheers Davie

    Davie's got pics on here of em fitted, do a search for his posts and youll find it.
    I've seen the car and about 3 other S3s on those springs and its all the drop you'd need tbh, toooo much lower and you compromise useability with rubbing in fast cornering.o

    Davies car looks/looked spot on with the springs. If I wasnt going on holiday this month, I would snap them up.

    The problem with the selling of the springs Davie is that I think I seen them at Awesome for £165 or something brand new. I'm just mentioning ok!

    You are doing the right thing can always get another car once you are used to the new financial commitments, good luck with the house purchase.
