    Ibis White S3 Owner

    I went from a 360 bhp WRX Wagon (noisey, crashy, rattly but great go anywhere fun) to a Cupra R to the s3 8p (Stage 1 Revo). I've had it for 4 years now the longest I've ever kept a car which tells you lot:yes:

    APR maps ?

    I've got stage 1 APR on my 2.0 TDI Golf Blue Motion. One word "Brilliant". Transformed the car. Acceleration is much quicker. Fuel consumtion is unaffected.

    S3 Rear Diff Part Numbers ?

    SPOTTERS THREAD FOR A3/S3 8P CHASSIS

    I won't use main dealers around Taunton or Bridgwater since Silverstreet VW messed every car I took to them. However, I would highly recommend Tom Walker at Retro Resus just off the Dunball roundabout. A most approachable guy and first class work. He and Jase know S3's inside out. I wouldn't...
