    Split the S3 for spares this week and have replaced it with this 03 STi

    Running 360BHP at the moment and theres so much grip compared to the S3, Miss my Audi but this thing puts a smile on my face when given some stick

    I await the Japcrap comments....

    Well Iv got to say that's one stunning tidy motor, Iv always had a soft spot for the scooby especially that shape and the newer ones. Shame to see you go but onwards and upwards, and great choice there.

    The pink brings out the colour in my eyes.....

    Its as i got it really apart from it had gold wheels but the went within a week, Will maybe get rid of some of the pink in time but i like it for the time being. Always wanted a scooby and this one was on my door step with over 25k spent with all paper work, Its got forged rods, pistons etc

    Wanting to get a new turbo now and get it above 400 horses

    i saw looking at doing the same (when my first A3 died, bell housing split) the only thing i didn't like was the plastic inside and the tinny doors compared to the audi. other then that nice cars.

    i do like the shape one you got

    The build quality is no where near the same as the Audi but its not made for that market.

    The dash is a little basic but thats no major deal, I wanted a Hawke eye STI when i was looking but ended up with this Blob eye as it was near and had such good history etc

    nice ride,the only thing its does not have imo is build quality, apart from that with a good suspension it would out run "almost" any Audi in its category.. ;)

    Lovely motor. Personally I'm a fan of the P1 but I do like what you've go there. I also like the Richard Burns limited edition ones and the WR1. But I don't know much about them really ;)

    Lovely sounding engine, and you can always hear them before you see them. I feel you got the best colour too (The blue, not the pink)

    aww everyone was so nice about it so here we go ..... its like a belly button everyone's got one, and its got pink bits on, its not even the acceptable pink...... also the spoiler looks like it should be used for slicing chips. :D

    but i bet it goes like sh!t off a stick and at the end of the day it goes Borppp tishhh which makes every thing okay :thumbsup:

    it does look like a tidy car though spot on :)
