    Quality mate, both looking lovely!

    God I love the M3's rims, probably one of my favourite of all time (a mate has them on his CSL E46).

    Your car is best obviously!

    They are nice & I do like them but for the price AP sell them for I can get 8 pots, Will be going GTX3071 as dont want more lag on the 3076 even though it would be more power ill be happy with my setup at 520- 560bhp on my built engine when its finished. But this year I have a list long of things to do first before the turbo eg bigger brakes for start

    Must admit, you have done a good job with this buddy! Little bit jealous if I am completely honest ;)

    Interested in an induction kit for mine though, how much did yours set you back? Any recommendations for makes? Don't want to spend a fortune but equally don't want any cheap cr*p putting in...

    Oh and I highly recommend a short shifter by forge... will massively improve the feel of driving the beast! Its next on my list after driving a friends with it fitted.

    Yeh thats true! i don't even know exactly how much the AP's are new? i got them next to new for a great price so i cant complain! I also need to sort a few things with the car i'm going to BT it, Coilovers etc. Can i ask Phil what's the BSH PCV mod and how much?

    Thanks Mate!! :)

    I'm not sure what engine you have but i have an evoms intake. Sounds great! i'm not sure what will fit yours but look at Forge, ITG or Evoms. They tend to be the preferred! I've kind of considered a shortshift for ages. i think its one of those small things you always think about but never get round to doing!

    Update;

    Car has been at AMD to finally sort this misfire issue once and for all (Given up on Audi they basically told me to get lost the minute the warranty run out)

    Turns out it was the valve springs. They pulled them out the car and according to the TSB released by Audi they were wrong. New revised springs are in the car and its pulling like never before. Absolutely no hesitation all the way through to 7250RPM, No blips in power literally all symptoms gone. Happy is not the word. :rock::rock:

    So anyone who suffers from the same symptoms i had for nearly two years, go to Audi and tell them to bloody sort it out. Or do what i did. (which i wish i did a long time ago) pay an independent and send audi the bill. Im talking to a solicitor i know today to see where i can get with it.


    Cars going to Brands Hatch next week for a trackday so will have loads of pics!

    In terms of updates (mods) i'm ordering some carbon mirrors tomorrow and the car is finally getting retrimmed next month! should be a good month!!

    That is exactly what i was getting quotes for, mate! Half alcantara is the one... Although I found a different configuration on the panels
    I like 'em in this colour.. same as you posted dude :wub:
    [​IMG]

    But i like the extra bit on the "shoulders" trimmed as well - leaving only the headrest bit in leather? (ignore the colour!)
    [​IMG]

    Also I like the stitching in silver.... but I have gone for the red dutch quilted smoking jacket look on the rs3 lol

    Great minds think alike. I'll be doing the shoulder parts too! Seen a RS6 like that looks much better! Silver stitch is where I'm leaning too. Purely to match the s/wheel, gaiter and handbrake!

    If only they would've let me have alcantara on my RS3 bucket seats...:( Tis not fair, the germans are allowed to spec it over there, just not for us.... We're only allowed it from new on s-line seats.
    I think you're going for alcantara on the right parts of the seat too - you definitely want it anywhere the seat grips you as it creates much more friction than the leather and really stops you sliding around on your seat under MASSIVE G-force:) I like the fact on your pic that the inside side panels are alcantara:drool: too - It's all gettin too much for me :faint:

    Well done on getting the issue fixed. Nothing worse than a niggling thing like that to ruin the love for your car.

    Those seats you proposed for the re-trim look unreal!

    Glad you got it sorted.

    AMDTuning are always my first call and whatever niggles I've had,they've sorted them and given me a truly quick car on the process.

    Hope you enjoy yours as much as I'm enjoying my old beast.
