    Driveshaft gaiter replacement tutorial

    First off apologies for posting in this thread. I’ve removed my n/s shaft but, couldn’t for the life me loosen the 18mm ball joint nut so opted to remove the 3 nut/bolts holding the ball joint to the wishbone. My dilemma now is I can’t get the wishbone anywhere near (sits way higher than the...

    Miltek System?

    I have a non resonated system on mine with a decat and 3” pipewerx downpipe. It’s a lot quieter than you would expect unless giving it some. No drone at all. A video of mine on cold start and a little rev at the very end. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Both Rear Calipers appear to be seized when trying to change discs

    Sorry to revive an old thread but I’m having a very similar issue with my n/s rear caliper. Car failed its MOT on a binding brake so I’ve taken it off the disc an free’d up the handbrake mechanism as I suspected this was the culprit. My issue now is I cannot for the life of me wind the piston...

    My S3 project

    Well I never thought I’d be doing this but I’m putting the S3 up for sale. As much as I love it, I just don’t have the time to give it the attention it needs. I will do a classified ad shortly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    s3 front wings

    I thought they were discontinued myself? Best bet is eBay or the Facebook groups. Plenty on there (Facebook) breaking at the moment. Not sure on the grille though Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    My S3 project

    Well today I decided to put the S3 back on the road as I felt sorry for it just sitting on the drive. I know I’ve wasted half a months tax but nevermind..... Battery was completely dead so jumped her off my A4 and went to put some fuel in. I thought the 15 minutes between there an home would...

    My S3 project

    Hi mate, it will be fine sound wise as they’re not very loud at all even with downpipe and decat. I’ll grab a video for you either tomorrow night or Saturday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    My S3 project

    Today I restored/polished the headlights on the S3. Gave them a clean and quick clay before starting on the sanding. I started off with 800 grit wet n dry. I then worked my way up to 2500 grit, using 1200, 1500 & 2000 in between. Next up I polished them using my Porter Cable 7424...

    My S3 project

    Yeah they’re very common to rust but, kind of expected at almost 17 year old unfortunately. I’ll be having mine done professionally too. I missed out on a mint drivers side wing the other week. Gonna make a start on the headlights shortly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    My S3 project

Made a small start today, although it was spur of the moment as I had originally gone into the garage to cut the grass..... Tried getting the door blades off but the screws behind the...

    Lockdown Restoration S3 8L

    Good work so far. I really need to make a start on mine. Having a steep driveway doesn’t help matters when needing to jack the car up though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
