Those S3 brakes look very nice mate! Should look great against the dark rims... What exhaust tips have you got there now Ash? Are those the MY11 one's or is that a different back box?

Thanks Lee :) Hows your brother getting on? Is he any better mate? Next on the list is to finish my custom rear bumper and new custom back box done. Fitting new steering wheel, xenon headlights and new front seats :icon_thumright: and then a few suprises. Hopefully by my 21st the car will be done

My brothers doing amazing mate, appreciate you asking, he walked for the first time in 18 weeks last week (3 weeks ago they said it's doubtful he'll walk) and he's home for good on the 28th Jan, can't wait!

Looking forward to seeing your car come together, Love it at the mo.

Thanks for the comment mate :) All ok with the brakes just need to fit them not had time so probably wont be in till the new year, thats if i even fit them. Well i got the calipers and discs for £200 off a CAT B S3. Cant remember how much the pads and hoses were and the hubs £80 each. The respray was free as my mate done it.


love this pic still think you need silver / white wheels, or possibly my sepang bronze ones ;)

Cheers Phil ;) Haha looking to sell your sepang bronze are you? what you gonna replace them with?

Ha Ha well done Ash, your a good lad.

Hi Dec

Cheers for the comment. Yeah still driven the car alot, cant let the snow put my life on hold ha. Had a few little bit problems yesterday with being low, my car ends up a snow plough lol! Snow and ice gather in the wheel arches and then my tyres just rub against them flicking more snow in the arches which did get me stuck yesterday for a bit. But just removed the excess sh*t under the arches and behide the wheels and the car just pulled off. Loved it saw a brand new 335i m sport stuck yesterday and i just drove past :)


Car is really starting to take shape now Ash, good work and keep the mods going!

Thanks James. Dont worry wont be stoping the work got alot more mods to be done.
I'll keep my eye for you in your new car:happy:

Those S3 brakes look very nice mate! Should look great against the dark rims... What exhaust tips have you got there now Ash? Are those the MY11 one's or is that a different back box?

My car is parked up for good it seems at the minute with this weather, hasn't been out for over a week, still, with it being on the drive it's not getting dirty from those roads.

It hardly done 500 miles, haven't seen you around lately but i'll keep my eye out for you, I'm sure you'll stick out in the crowd

Cheers dude, yeah I had that myself, right pain! haha. I smashed my undertray off, but must have been loose to start with as when I took it off yesterday it was pretty mangled! Going to lower it some more in the spring once the weather improves, yours looks a lot lower than mine especially on the back! Would love mine to look like yours, can't find S3 bumpers and skirts anywhere (plus they would probably be too much money for what I want to spend on a high miler!)

Seen some many BMW's dumped at the bottom of hills round here, some people need to learn how to drive in the snow or stay at home if the car isn't suitable!

Just think thats better for you because you not driven her much and not put any miles on her so when you do take her out its gonna feel all brand new :) Haha yeah im sure i'll stick out from the crowd blacked out a3 and no front plate on. Have a good christmas mate and new year

well its holding out as long as i dont abuse it too much haha

Haha how long you think that will last? Lol so considering your car feeling quite sorry for it self she done quite well:happy: Hope you get these problems sorted soon and have a good christmas and new year

Thought the tips look a bigger, was thinking about one for mine, but still haven't decided if its staying or going yet. Yours is looking mean now.

If it goes what you gonna replace her with Rich? Aw cheers i need some xenons and i'll be happy with the front end and the rear end needs some sorting out. Have a good christmas and new year :)

No problem. Its is a nightmare, got stuck in my car park as they not cleared it up or anything so digging my way out on wednesday night lol. How much will a new undertray cost dec? How low are you now?
Yeah the back as low as it can go lol i took the adjusters out:happy: I want to lower the front a little bit more but when the weather better so the snow doesnt kill my new splitter ha.
I got my S3 bumper off ebay they are like good dust mind, i want some s3 skirts but dont know when i'll get them. If you dont want to spend too much do the s-line conversion?

Lol i just find it funny, no way would i just leave my car some where. And it suprises me how many people you see in 1st wheel spinning. whats the plans for your car? Have a good christmas and new year aswell Dec

dont blame them as BBS are oh so nice! still want a pair, but everything i spend on the car seems to end up being a performance mod rather then a looks one... think its time the looks got a turn!
na think you should leave the exterior as it is... looks the nuts!
