    1. Stop moaning & get used to the CAI noises (or box it all in) while enjoying the oodles of extra torque of stage 2.

    2. Try to leave the car alone and stop thinking I need to get an HPFP...

    3. Go on then - maybe a paint touch up to tidy up all the stone chips.

    It's like bloody drugs! I'm just chasing that first hit again - I keep wanting to spend more money on the HPFP, fuel rails etc etc & I'm getting less back than my first stage 1 remap hit. :sadlike:

    Allegedly...:whistle2:

    Not sure but leaning towards a 3.0d A5. I would have another A3 without a doubt if i could get DSG quattro diesel

    in response to PaulAr's comment i'm interested to know what the new A3's gonna be like - maybe i'll wait until spy shots come out this year before making a firm decision on what to swap to.

    If the funds are available (doubt it):

    1. MTM Bimoto 19'' alloys fitted refurbished in satin black
    2. Milltek
    3. Buckets (Think that's on most of our lists though, and unlikely to happen)
    4. A much needed detail

    Same here.
    Either hold on to the S3 or get something in between, maybe scratch the EVO X itch and keep for 12-18months.

    Thought about selling up, but not so sure now anything i think about changing to will be a upgrade in car and although i could afford the change i'm not crazy about the idea more insurance, more tax

    and lets not forget any mods to the new car lol so il be keeping the A3 for now

    I agree, I would love the chance to get a set now but there's no chance, trying to pay the car off first. Once that happens, I can start putting my hand in my pocket and spend the money on the car, rather than paying it off

    Yeah, I was a paddle shift sceptic until I drove an FQ330 SST.
    The one to have IMO.

    That said, not particularly much quicker than a Stage 1 S3 (in a straight line) but an excellent drive.

    One of the reasons for not going stage 2+ this year, Im also on my 2nd OEM clutch and dont fancy the hassle and cost of a 3rd clutch on a car thats only done 30k miles!!

    Just some TLC and wheel furb in hyper silver

    cheers

    i had a go in a fq300 sst i was impressed enough a few years back i had a go in a evo 6 tommy mack edition tuned to 450bhp that was a monster so fast off the line nothing ive driven has compared to it lol , have you thought of getting an uprated clutch as the oem ones arent lasting too long
