    Dave B's S3 Diary

    So 6 months have passed, which probably means it's update time :) The car has been great, but with a growing family the time has come to part with the trusty S3. I say this with a heavy heart as the last 9 years of ownership have been really enjoyable, and the car has taken everything in it's...

    Sooo, I managed to get these fitted at the weekend. Mocked up to check it all fits: ...and finally in place behind the wheel (please ignore the scabby wheel, it is in dire need of a refurb): I'm really happy with the pedal feel and stopping power, more than enough for fast road driving...

    Spoke to Badger5, it turns out the clip fits where the line meets the hard line and I need a rubber grommet for the shock mounting. Pics to follow shortly (much sooner than my last update lol)

    **Warning:S3dave's adjustable tie bars**

    Well this is quite worrying. I have the mild steel versions which have been on the car about 18 months, the cars in for it's MOT on Saturday morning so I'll have a good nosey whilst it's on the ramps. I might even change them anyway for peace of mind!

    People with 3" Downpipes - where were they fitted?

    I paid Pipewerx to fit my downpipe, sports cat and system, £200 and 2 hours later - done. No swearing or ******* about and no knocks or bangs afterwards.

    So the mapping's done. I dropped it off with Rick on Monday afternoon and by 4ish on Tuesday it was finished, graph below: The car feels much stronger everywhere now. Rick had some positive comments about the car which was nice to hear, it had zero problems (phew) and apparently it's one of...
