Was tempted to get this over Xmas, but didnt in the end!!
There's no end to your talent tuffty
Those standard rods won't last long!
Heads need porting too and needs a pair of GT turbos
I smashed an exploration geophysics exam
so might celebrate by buying something shiny! Any suggestions?
Grats, You can buy me a k250?
I've just ordered some more upgrade parts for the Ess, let's see how long it takes me to fit these? Lol
Bought me an airfilter woo!
Got some engine mounts to poly fill! Dad also made me a DP spacer and I also bought some mk5 golf wiper arms by accident. Still gonna fit them lol
Washed the car after next door has had cavitie wall insulation done left red brick dust all over her . She looks a lot better after a wash

and I've been sketching my favorite subject
Been busy today starting porting a Ford ST170 head
Standard inlet port
I painted the set of s3 carriers and calipers, when I got them from the breakers they were painted red, now a nice gold kind of colour, a lot more subtle
I've had door cards and boot trim off today in an attempt to fix the ****ty sounds coming from my driver's side front door Bose speaker!! It's driving me insane. Replaced the amp - didn't make a blind bit of difference. Swapped the speaker around with the other side and hey presto - the speaker is buggered! Going to get a replacement and all will be happy again.
Job for tomorrow - fix my rear windscreen wiper washer jet with the repair kit I got and to give her a much needed wash and hoover.
Here's a random picture of my door....
My other half got me one of these for Christmas, but it is only a 4 pot kit. I feel cheated!!
Sump cleaned, new o ring and oil pickup pipe and an oil change. Winner!
I went to scrap 2 cars in my garden, and ended up finding a kicker sub and 2 alpine v12 amps!!! I'll be powering my AndyMac sooner than I know !! Can't wait!
I got my dad the 4 banger last year. Wish I knew there was an 8
got myself a Milltek, 2 hour drive at 8pm last night... £200 from some guy breaking on Facebook
Now to buy the stuff I need fit it!
Finally cleaned the car has been a while with the bad weather and little jobs I've been doing. Done a bit of a fix on my door blade too as it was peeling off I will replace it but figured a free repair attempt won't hurt for now! Had to drill the end screw out coated the plastic in glue and clamped it down then replaced the screw with a long one that bites into the blade it appears to worked for now.
Finally got all my **** in my new house, b5 tip came a couple of days ago so that to fit, waiting on my coilovers and Dave's tie arms. Few little bits to keep me going.
Started to contemplate selling the s3 :/.
NOOOOO!!!! In all honesty I did too Dani. But I decided to keep her and sorn her and buy a VW Caddy!
Dont want to mate but to get her to standard im Happy with im looking at best bart of 3/4k, to make matters worse ive just bought my first house and move in next week.
Break it, seems like the trend these days, the more that's broken/scrapped, the rarer they become.
well fixed my washer jets 5months owning the car and not had working washer jets, super pleased
snap we are due to complete next week too! although I won't be moving in for 5-6 months as I'm going to be doing a lot of work on it! also going to be building a nice new home (Garage) for my S3
Not got the time jojo or really the space but I have thought that. I know id make a fair bit breaking it as I've spent ££££'s on it.
I ended realising I need a lot more power after going for a spirited drive with some mates
Experienced a full motion F1 simulator as well which was totally cool and so much fun! Definitely recommend it if you're into your Forza/Grand Turismo
I fitted 2010/2012 white dis dashes to 55/56 a3 tdi and S3.
Not an audi dealer or immo off in sight, and both cars retained there original keys, today was a good day
Very impressive, may have to get mine done at some point
Today i finished this head off and now i have another to do
i bought an AEB cylinder head and intake fanimold to start my project
Wow that's amazing that you coil do these stuff! I know nothing about these... I wish I knew... But the problem is also life commitments and other stuff that makes you reallllllllllly busy.,,
Anyway good luck with your project!
I finally ordered my BBS ch alloys, cost me fortune !!! Keep you guys posted once arrived
So today, I put the OEM 17" Avus rims on, so I can send my 18s for a rerefurb, only need 2 doing. I've also ordered a poly steering rack mount and about to order some new balljoints ready for my complete lower front end rebuild. The car doesn't actually need this doing, but I got everything cheap, so might aswell.
i need to do something with my wheels soon, they either need a full refurb or i need a new set. for the price of a refurb it doesn't seem worth it on a set of reps
Why not, you effectively have new wheels then, but the fact they are replicas are playing with your mind!?
I got a puncture yesterday
Yeah, but the R35, 360 and 996 Turbo (GT2?) are in a bit of a different league to the S3. And is that a 599?
I repaired the passenger side (left side) rear boot touch pad switch today. It's been broken for ages and I finally ordered the bits and fixed it! The thing is I'm so used to using the other side (and I'm right handed anyway) that I'll probably still keep using the old one unless I make a conscious effort to use the left!!
I need to repair my driver side arm rest... Not sure how to unscrew it so it I won't damage it...
