    Whooo hoooo :)

    Finally pushed the old girl through her MOT yesterday after she failed at the weekend :(

    Got to love a simple fix of....remove item, clean connections, replace item = voila it now works :rock:

    One less thing to worry about for another year :racer:

    ^ gratz. Always hate when my MOT is coming up, I'm going to need a new windscreen to get through mine, my windscreens seem to break for fun.


    Managed to nap a front s3 break set up last night, the stock breaks are really **** considering the extra power I've got now.

    I got to 'first start' a twin turbo 2.8 V6 8L build :D

    A friend couldnt get the immo data married up between clocks and ecu on another members car (small world), so of I bobbed with my toughbook and back of tricks and she's good to go albeit a few teething issues. Sure was a damn sweet build too, im guessing some posts ad photos will follow!

    I cleaned my sump and pickup did the red dogbone while I was at it. It wasn't too bad a few bits of **** in the pick up and no real disasters. Using the correct torque settings one of the little bolts sheared off so I finished it off without and no more problems. It doesn't appear to be leaking so I think I'll keep an eye on it and leave it til summer and drop it again to sort it out.

    Did have a slight panic jumped in the car to visit my sister aircon making a horrible noise... It was just the plastic tray drivers side had unclipped at the top touching a pulley had the few seconds thinking I'd done something expensive!

    How dirty was your pickup? Mine was pretty good, just a couple of bits of grit and dipstick. Plenty of burnt on oil in the sump though to remove.

    Took off polybush top mounts (groaning harsh pieces of ****!), fitted std ones again, and swapped out the AP Sport front springs for my old Apex set, keeping the AP Sport shocks.

    Ride quality restored, and car now sits level again. That AP Sport kit left the front too high, not convinced I got went the correct front springs, they certainly sent the wrong rear shocks so makes me wonder what else they got wrong...

    Also removed the standard HID bulbs and ballast, as one was failing, and fitted a 55w HId kit with 5000k bulbs. I can see again!

    The pickup was better then I expected I think it could of been left but had the same burnt on oil. Worth it for piece of mind though I guess.

    Flew 21hrs + 3hr stopover home and then took the car for a spin. Was good to drive after having a Mk7 Golf Diesel, which was also nice it has to be said, if a little slow.

    Cleaned the inside of the car. It was to cold to wash it. It's been no more than -2C all day.
    I can't wait until summer

    Meh. Took mine out. leaks badly, filled with water, heater packed up so can't de-mist it. Spent 20 minutes drying it out, only to go out and my EGT guage started playing up, loose wire somewhere.

    meh. Winter is ****. Wheelspin in 4th at 110mph is scary.

    Rotated my winter tyres around from front to backs.

    I hope it gets extremely cold very soon, anything above 8 degrees and they're not great :(

    I'm not sure you know! I think it's V? They're flipping good in Ice, braking was as normal! I fear braking in ice and snow coz the s3 isn't the best, but with these tyres, it's bluddy great!

    Yeah totally agree- they are in a different league when the snow and ice come and you need to use some sudden braking. They are lardy ass cars when it comes to stopping on ice/slush no matter if you have 312s or 6 pots fitted to main thing comes down to the rubber.

    I've got V rated on my winters also- good for 149mph :eyebrows: :racer:

    Thanks mate ;)

    I got the Turbosmart gauge from ebay(£38), from a company in Blackpool.

    I got the pillar pod from a company online called NOMAD. That was £42 for the single and iirc £48 for the double.

    The good thing with the NOMAD pod is it replaces the entire A-Pillar trim so it keeps it looking factory !!
