Lets see 'em then lol
Took it to the car wash. Stalled it.
Fitted my new ttrs/black edition wheels and rokkor lowing springs on the rear (fronts to be done tomorrow)
So the heatwave has done wierd things. Pushed the cupholder in and then it jammed, would not come back out, thought it was broken untill yesturday when it randomly popped out and started working again.
Then had both windows down and now the switch (and the auto up on lock) doesnt work, so I have to keep it off the road. No idea if a fuse is gone or if it will randomly work again like the cupholder!
Hahahaha love this especially how it was written! Taking my #babygirl for a 300 mile trip from Cambridge to Abersoch in Wales today, hoping it's not as muddy as last year!
She's been de-chromed now too so at least the mud wont show as easily ha
Lucky it's not white like my mates mini...
Hooned it round the scottish highlands the last 3-4 days and back in work today (Belfast)
Boydie - How did the cooler hold out as i am really struggling in this heat and need to get one sorted ASAP!?
It seemed fine - no issues what so ever and the car boosted no problem and felt brilliant!
Went for a night blast in a 1000cc bike engined Suzuki Kit-car the other day (sequential box)
Flames on over run, constant banging and popping, wheel spinning with ease in 3rd gear.
My ears were still ringing the next day.
CRAZY LOUD, It could be heard 10 miles away according to friends of mine.
I want one.
Think thats next on my shopping list as mine is feeling a little asmathic!
rounded off the thread of one of the pipes that go into my fuel pump while tightening it back in after cam follower change.
Safe to say when i turned the ignition, petrol went everywhere. Clearly wasn't tight enough, and now waiting for a new one from local audi.
Drove to gym, fuel light is on...;(
about to drive to the gym.... I know the fuel lights gonna come on :'(
Fuel light always on... i should of got a diesel.
S3 is being pampered today.
Brand new 18 black ed rotors
New set of eagle f1 shoes
New brake pads
Cam belt change
New water pump
New alternator belt
Replacement window switches on drivers door
Replacement jet on rear washer.
Can't wait to see it on thursday! Pics to follow
Not quite today but close enough.
New exhaust manifold
Programmable ALS and 6 stage TC.
The car should be feeling very lucky.
The car demanded it.... I'm there only to serve its needs.
I say that to the Mrs. She never complies.
Spent almost 6 hours driving from Manchester to Norwich in the pissing rain - one of the wipers failed and im sure a speed camera got me on the M6
Nothing..... It's been stuck in the garage since last Tuesday...!
How am I only seeing this thread now! Cud have had so many updates :-(
Latest upgrade is the H&R Arbs and WALK. Loving it so far.
Left at home with the missus while I'm in Surrey working driving her mk4 golf GT TDI... Why u ask, well 53.7mpg on the way down from Sheffield is the answer
New steering rack fitted today After months of knocking, shes now quiet and feels a lot more sure footed in the steering
Where from comp an how much, I just don't know where to turn with mine m8.
It ended up being £988 bud ;/ still a lot cheaper than everywhere else was. Includes Hunter wheel alignment too!
I needed a new wiring loom which bumped up the price!
Ouch, don't fancy spending that m8 spent enough to already what with tyres tax DP an de cat and family/lads holidays.. Think I'll live with the knocking a while longer
Know what ya mean ;/ mine was that bad tho it sounded like the engine was loose!
Just had a call from the mechanic.
Add rear discs to that list!!
The car always wants more!
No more i hope!
You're not wrong!! Picked it up and I only have two wheel drive. Its showing a fault with the Haldex. Probably needs a new Haldex clutch pump so its going back in next week!! !
Just got home after fitting my Wagner Intercooler
Next week it's my TTE420 install
Had a single mass flywheel and turned my s3 into a cement mixer as @S3Alex says. Mrs is pissed off and is asking why I paid to have my car sound broken.
And that is why a DMF is a better choice for every day use
But not if you wanna do drags / launches.
Maybe mine needs to bed in but damn that sound when deaccelerating in gear.
Hmmm is it set up right? Which clutch/fly wheel you get?
