    Hi all

    Just joined the Audi club after buying (last week) a 2015 S3 saloon in Sepang blue with a lunar silver interior. My previous car was a 2016 Golf R, so similar cars but the Audi just feels like a better car. My Golf was manual so the Audi also feels faster being S-Tronic.

    Tried to post more but the forum's flagging my post as spam!

    My car currently has;
    • ACC
    • Body coloured mirrors, heated and folding
    • Black styling pack
    • B&O stereo
    • Panoramic sunroof
    • Nav high
    • Parking system plus
    • High beam assist
    I've already renewed the air filter (just replaced with stock Audi) and ripped out the snow guard.

    Over the next few weeks and months I'm planning to;
    • Tint the rear windows
    • Get 3 new tyres (somehow it has 3 Continentals and a Pirelli).
    • Replace the stock turbo intake with the Turbo Technics large bore hose and bell mouth
    • Put on a sports cat
    • Stage 2 remap

    Welcome mate, from another Scot! I missed your post as I mainly look at the A3/S3 8V section.
    Nice looking car too.
    I assume the tyres will be one of the first changes as it’s not great having odd ones on the quattro as I’m sure you know.
    Will keep an eye out for you as I occasionally pass through the Kingdom.
    Happy motoring!

    Cheers mate. Yeah getting 3 Pirelli P-Zeros fitted tomorrow so they’re all matching. The one on there is fairly new so no need to replace it.

    Getting the rear windows tinted next week and probably going to replace the turbo intake elbow soon. Then it’s Eibach springs and a stage 1 remap.

    So far I’ve;

    - renewed cabin and air filters
    - had 3 new Pirelli’s fitted
    - had the rear windows tinted
    - swapped out the stock turbo inlet elbow for a Forge one
    - had the S-Tronic and Haldex serviced
    - got a set of Eibach pro springs on the way
