    Hello everyone

    I'm new to the forum and new to the Audi scene in general.
    I've just purchased a 2009 S3 (8P3?) and looking forward to getting stuck in.

    I'm in IT consultant by trade and come from a background of modifying cars in a big way.
    Currently running a 500bhp Mini Cooper S, just sold a 520bhp Hawkeye STI Subaru so looking forward to seeing what I can do with the S3.

    First things are first though - lot's of reading and speaking to specialists. The car needs new discs and pads all round so they'll be getting upgraded. Coilovers will follow shortly after. The car already has a Miltek turbo back - which makes me think it may have had a map also but until I take it somewhere, I won't know...

    I'm desperate for some RS3 alloys (or RS4), new seats and to replace the Concert audio system with the RNS-e system.

    Great forum from what I've read :)

    Unfortunately it transpired the car had some pretty serious crash damage!

    The dealer notified me a couple of days after I paid the deposit.

    So, in the end, I went with a Black S-Tronic car instead :) comes with the RNS, AMI, full leather etc etc

    Seriously enjoying the smoothness of the car and the gearbox - would like a little more noise though. The blue car had a turbo back Miltek and it sounded immense!
