    Nope, I live in Dubai. 1 of only 4 S3's here. Loads of TT's though.

    Dash pod test fitted, need to wire up the gauges.

    Its made from fiberglass and bodyfiller.

    Masked the area off, and glassed a layer of fiberglass for the basic shape.

    Used pvc pipe to get he shapes. My oil temp and pressure are 51mm and boost gauge is 60mm. Boost gauge not fitted yet.

    Once I had the pvc in position, I used fleece material to stretch over the pod. Fleece is good as it stretches and will take some nice curves. I used contact glue to stick the fleece to the bottom of the pod. Once you happy with the look, apply generous layer of fiberglass resin and leave to dry. Once dry you can put a layer of fiberglass over the fleece for extra strength.
    Once thats dry, look forward to hours of standing :)
    Sand fiberglass till its all level and apply body filler, enjoy some more hours of sanding !!

    Finished off with 320 grit water paper, and prepare for painting.

    Didnt get any pictures of the fleece part, but here is the one with sanding and shaping. It looks crappy when its not painted.

    This will give you an idea about the fleece. No wrinkles and fully wrapped.

    About 3500 GBP, its not in top condition but its the only one with low mileage. 110 000km. There are only 4 S3's in the whole country here.
    Back in South Africa, a 2001 Audi S3 with the same mileage will cost about 9000 GBP, so for me its so cheap here :)
