    Wanted WTB 1.8T tubular manifold, turbo and Silicone TIP

    Right, well out the loop as I haven't owned a K04 car for nearly 12 years. I'm sticking a BAM in my Mk2 Golf and I'm after some parts. The engine I have sourced has a cracked standard turbo, so I figure why replace when you can upgrade. Looking for the following... - Tubular exhaust manifold...

    biggest wheels on an s3?

    S3 on Bentleys looks amazing, whoever thought of that must be a genius! :p The Bentleys were 19x9 with 215 35 19 tyres. Didnt drive the smoothest on them, but looked good (in my opinion) Have driven an S3 on 20's and it sucked. Plus most affordable 20's are likely to be cast, combined with the...

    Off to the dyno....

    Its quite quick I suppose! Haha Delivery of power is really smooth and progressive, it pulls really well, considering the car is quite standard looking it will certainly be catching a few people off guard. Ben has done an amazing job with the install and it looks really factory considering the...

    Post pics of your A3/S3

    Cheers Kev. As was yours, your paint is flawless, really makes me want a respray! Raised the back up by 4mm the day after the show to cure the reverse rake so it sits better now I think and doesnt rub on the rear. New wheels should be on Saturday!

    Post pics of your A3/S3

    Liking those Works Meisters :icon_thumright: After raising the car and running it through winter it was time to get it back to summer mode. Had it sitting pretty good on the Range Rover wheels last year but was room for improvement. So over winter refurbed these Bentley Monoblocks and tried...

    Jetex, BMC, What other filters with Badger 5 TIP in Black & Red?

    Hi I used the search but can only find Jetex or BMC filters fitted Ihave a Badger 5 TIP fitted and I fitted an OEM s2000 paper filter thanks to some research by a friend. It fitted well and the 'tail' on the end allows it to be slotted into the wing bracket for the stock box. As can be seen...

    Hi I have got some aftermarket Recaro seats for my 8l S3 and the centres are being redone in leather to match the rest of my interior. While its being done I want to have the seats converted to being heated as I have grown a fondness to burning my butt. The car already has heated standard...

    Hit a deer anyone got any front end parts?

    Thanks for the response It was a wild deer and the farmer was a random guy driving down the road. To be honest after snapping its necks, he was welcome to it as I couldnt have done that! I think he left in a ditch by the roadside though. @Wibble - Thanks for the offer of the Foglight, but I...

    Hit a deer anyone got any front end parts?

    When I spoke to the insurer I said that it was purely an enquiry and they confirmed that no records had been entered onto the system regarding my enquiries, but with my frequent dealings with Insurers and Brokers I know that a verbal confirmation doesnt really mean much and they do things...
