    S3 door strips
    S3 Steering wheel
    S3 headlights

    Magnex De-cat
    Bailey Re-circ valve
    Jabba cold air box and filter
    lightly tinted windows
    Smaller tinted number plates with german lettering
    18" MTM style wheels
    Blue suede interior (out of later a3)

    All comments welcome, i want to be running it about 280 bhp what else will i need to do to achieve this?
    When it was re-mapped the intake temps were getting high so i need FMIC, but iv also put de-cat pipe on and better cold air box filter on (makes difference as used to suffer with heat soak after a while of driving it hard)

    WOW! lots of money spent to make it into a rep, including an engine transplant.... surely it would have been cheaper to buy an S3 in the first place? So is your car running 2wd or 4wd?
    Doesn't look like you have S3 sideskirts or S3 lower strips bud, I'll see if I spot you around, I'm based in Solihull and venture into Brum most days.

    GORGEOUS car Dan, really, very smart, be it a rep or not, those wheels, and that colour, look perfect!

    But, I personally wouldnt have called it an S3 rep.

    Your car will be faster in a straight line than an S3, but its obvious from the seats that its not an S3, and the more educated members of the public will note the normal wheel arches!

    I myself have a 240bhp A3, which is quicker than a remapped S3, but I wouldnt for a minute think of it as an S3 rep. its a whole different car. Very sorted handling for fwd, and enough power and light weight to out run an S3. Do you have a set of ARB's on it? If not, DO IT! My rear arb has been the single best mod I've ever done!

    Running that engine in a fwd car must be great though, I can imagine its REALLY fun.

    Being a later model, does yours have traction control?

    I run a ko3S AGU, and it seriously needs traction control, the front wheels are forever spinning up, even at modest boost.

    I've got a set of eibach ARB's on mine, they cost me £257 delivered.

    I can honestly say they are the single best mod I have ever done to the car. They outweigh all the other suspension and engine mods by a mile, because everything else just makes it better, faster, stiffer, but essentially an improvement on original. the ARB's totally change the balance of the car, from a acceptably average car with a strong tendancy to understeer, to a sharp pointable motor, with absolutely NO understeer at all, and a good liking for lift off oversteer should the occasion permit!

    really, get a rear ARB on there, it makes it a whole new car!

    Let me rephrase.

    Nice MTM 'style' wheels. Are they 'replica' or 'original', if 'replica' where do you get them from?

    Don't worry, just found the 'replicas' 18" or 19" OE RS007 at Rochford Tyres; out of stock.

    That must have cost a fortune to do all like that.

    Looks really good though, Definitly different from the norm,

    Did you find the S3 bodywork hard to fit at all?

    Dan, very nice, I'm jealous!! my 1.8T Q is the same colour...the colour is very unique on A3's. At the moment, mine is standard, but I'm hoping to start work on it early 2008...How did you manage to get a hold of S3 rear and front bumper, I've been searching since I purchased the car (2 months) and no luck!!! Any tips?

    got the exhaust done after bumper went on, ebay is the 1 for the bumpers, you will pay more for front than rear but they pop up quite often on there!
