    Yeah I've seen, I got the upper and lower amps for less than £40. Mad how 18 months ago the same parts on ebay would have cost me over £150. Hence why I was putting it off.

    Great mod battery relocation. How much did you pay for the parts? In my opinion they should have done it that way from the factory. Good 20kg less on the front end.

    I got all parts for about £150 off eBay breakers last summer.
    Rear positive and negative battery cables
    Rear fuse box
    Postive battery lead to starter motor
    Battery jump post

    Modified my existing small postive/starter lead and put a M8 terminal on the end to fasten to battery jump post.

    Yeah i agree should have been a stock setup on the S3.

    Do you happen to have the part numbers for the relocation parts?

    Good job on the battery relocation.

    Is there other benefits from doing this?

    Free up space in the already tight engine bay area.
    Allows fitment of RS3, TTRS, TTS and R32 style OEM air boxes or after market setups.
    Rear fuse box has 3 separate fuses for powering anything you require in the boot.

    Been a busy few weeks.

    Rear wiper delete and antenna upgrades done
    Fuel injectors serviced by R-Tech
    1 was beyond recovery and 3 needed a service
    Upgraded FPRV from 155bar FPRV to 165bar
    Walnut blasted the inlet valves
    Replaced Milltek TBE with full 3inch Cobra Sport, much better fitment and quality.

    Recently attended a dyno day at Unicorn Motorsport and with fueling system refreshed achieved 439bhp and 471ftlb
    Last year I was there got 414bhp 458ftlb on same dyno.

    Come to think of it the bad injector probably caused my initial engine rebuild due to a broken piston landing, back in December 2015.
    I highly recommend anyone with a car older than 5 years to get their injectors serviced.
