    Power vs Spec

    Having gone from a remapped 8P S3 and remapped bmw 335i to now a 3.0tdi heavy a4 cab (work forced the move) which is fully speccd. I can categorically say power and weight will be top of my list when I swap cars. Which I feel is going to be very soon, even if it has been only 3 months. I think...

    S line front bumper grills

    May I ask where you got the grill from? I've recently picked up a B7 cab but the grill has sustained some damage and I can't seem to find one for what I'd call a reasonable price.

    Sheridan's S3

    Stunning looking S3, love the colour and what a spec! In terms of tuning, Awesome are good for supplying some of the hardware but for mapping it could be worth getting in touch with Rick @ Unicorn (site sponsor on here) as he will do a custom map opposed to an off the shelf one. Based in...

    Buying a A3 S line TDI 170 help info links etc..... re map advice??

    Sorry can't remember exact price, your better dropping Rick a line on here or emailing him. His site info is down the bottom. Oh yes...it's certainly a slippery slope haha!!

    Buying a A3 S line TDI 170 help info links etc..... re map advice??

    Yeah DPF can be a nightmare as Audi like to charge £1K+ to replace it. They just need to be driven for a 20min (ish) period to burn off some of the carbon or the car will do a forced regen on it. I had a nightmare with mine despite travelling 120 miles a day. In the end i got it removed and...

    Welcome, they are solid cars depending on when in 2008 it was it may have the new CR engine as well which is a bit quieter and smoother. Only thing to consider is the DPF if you do a lot of short journeys, although they can be removed and mapped out. Deffo get it remapped ...as your based in...

    S3 Owners! What car are you getting next?

    Yeah that engine is brilliant. My mates just had his remapped by Rick @ Unicorn now it's a monster. It did highlight the need for some form of LSD though... and that's where the slippery slope begins haha. Only thing which puts me off bmw's is the amount of depreciation in such a short space of...

    BMW 335i M Sport. Drove one and and simply fell in love. After a bit of fun in that I think an A5 3.0tdi Quattro is on the cards while a house is purchased.

    Cant decide between Petrol or Diesel!

    The 1.8T wasn't brought in until considerably later so it would be the 1.6 or 2.0 in the petrol. Yeah diesel torque is addictive but at the same time so is petrol power/noise so it really is swings and roundabouts. As I said just give them a test drive and you'll soon know which one you want :)

    Cant decide between Petrol or Diesel!

    I went from a 1.2 Corsa to a 1.9 (8L) A3 which was a massive increase in power and torque compared to what i was used to. Then I went to a 170 8P A3 which was a pain in the a*** with the DPF despite doing 32k/year. Then finally went to the S3. Having a petrol is good, but in a heavy car like the...

    RS5 conversion on A5

    Yeah I don't think I would want to sell as it truly is a one off special car. Sounds good, is the larger charger still in the pipeline? I hope one day I can do something like this - a proper project car. Maybe not to the same extent but damn it looks good!
