    Here's a little lighthearted thread to take our minds off the stresses of 'Stealers'!

    So, if you could make one mod from any previous car you owned to you A3/S3, what would it be?

    To kick the ball off I'd have a rear seat armrest whick you can poke long things through like in my old SAAB :)

    Definately the electric controls to operate the rear 3/4 windows to open outward from my Megane Coupe. I loved those windows opening....!!

    Was it seriously better than an S3?

    The exhaust noise from my 1969 Escort MkI after the exhaust tip had fallen off without me noticing. It sounded like a spitfire. Oh, and the rear-wheel drive the Escort had too.

    But not the hand-operated washer jet, the 3 candle-power headlamps, the marshmallow tyres, the thin steering wheel, the damp, the 22mpg, 85mph top-whack, 1.3l engine that only used a 1/4 of the space under the bonnet.

    Got to be the 'snick-snick' awesome gearbox from the EVO6, but it's only a 5 speed.

    Also have to second antss3 suggestion as well.

    The induction noise off a pair of 48 sidedraft dellortos. I'll save the embarassment by not mentioning the car, but you're free to speculate.
