...having some crazy thoughts today re: some soft top action for the summer.
So what's my S3 worth?
Silver 2001 S3 (210)
Audi warranty until december
Tax until October
38k miles FASH
Private plate - S3 GUT (GUT meaning good in German for those that always ask)
Chrome mirrors (OEM)
Can anyone tell me how many parts the rear bumper on an S3 comes in?
..or are they all 1 part?
I've just rejected my car's repair at the bodyshop on several counts, 1 being that the bottom lip is still knackered - they swear they've changed the bumper...

There's a group buy going on at my old owners forum, just wondered if they were widely used on the 1.8T ?
...I'm thinking it'd be more effective than a FMIC and if an ethanol mix were used possible timing changes could be made also .. useful for us Revo SPS3 people
OK, decided I want to turn my attention to the suspension - here's what I have on my shortlist.
20-30 mm springs (H&R/Eibach)
Uprated shocks (Bilstein)
Where's the best/cheapest place to get the above?
Already have an R32 rear ARB at home along with spacers.
Is the rear adjustable tie bar...
Currently running 18" RS6 reps and I'm told they're possibly the heaviest wheels possible
Would changing the wheels for lighter ones make a noticeable difference in performance? If so which ones are worth going for? BBS CHs catch my eye, what kind of £££ are we talking for a set of 18s...
Happened yesterday, got rear ended while waiting at a roundabout on my lunch break.
Bumper/tailgate are knackered..boot floor 'looks' ok - looks like she hit me ****** hard though, or do all A3s do this?
1st time it's happened. Noticed on the way in this morning that the light was on ... couldn't turn it off with the ESP button
Restarted car and it's off again, will get VAGCOM plugged in tonight - any ideas? Seen this before?
Had it a couple of times today .. clutch doesn't return to normal height occasionally - not good today when I was launching enthusiastically, nasty smell of burnt clutch!
Anyone know what casues this? And whatever it is is it likely to be covered by Audi warranty?
Who'd be interested in one of these?
A company called NomadRacing have made these for other cars and I've asked if they'd be interested in making one to fit Audi A3 and S3 models.
Here is an example of their work:
I had one of their...
Lot of time on my hands - away on business and bored
What are the current upgrade options for the S3 beyond a chip?
So far I've read about:
MTM - too rich for my blood and not after silly power
Jabba - not many S3s running the IHI so a little nervous about this one
Hybrid K04 - Some people...
