    Evening all!

    Tomorrow I may be purchasing a 2002 Audi A3 1.8T Sport from a mechanic who solely works on my current car when I take it in at a Mercedes Independent garage.

    I currently own a frankly superb W202 C250 Turbo Diesel which has done me well for 100k miles in the last 4 years however with ULEZ being introduced in the London CC Zone next year I unfortunately have to sell her. The owner of the MB Independent wanted dibs so he's buying her off me as he'll lookafter the car and knows first hand how much she's worth as I have exhaustively maintained her to the highest standards, having had a recent spread in Mercedes-Benz Owners Magazine (This year bills have cost me almost £3500 alone for subframe bushes, engine hydromounts, etc etc.

    So...the upcoming car. Its a 1.8T Sport 3 door, just ticked over 100k miles and has had the following done:

    (This is a long list...)

    Front shocks
    Rear shocks
    Rear trailing arm bushes
    Front lower ball joints
    Front lower arms rear bushes
    Cat (Meow lol)
    Back box plus custom tips
    Removed center exhaust box
    Radio/sub/rear speakers and tweets
    4x Hancock tyres
    Front antiroll bar bushes
    S3 spoiler
    Led up grade interior lights
    Xenon side lights
    New Bosch S5 battery
    Dump valve
    Cam case breather valve
    K and n air filter
    Ecu remap
    4x coil packs
    Air mass sensor
    N/75 valve x2
    Full service x2
    Platnium spark plugs
    Pollon filter
    Fuel Filter
    Gear box oil
    Resealed gear box sump pan
    Rear floor mats
    S3 pedals
    Timing belt and water pump
    N/S track rod
    Air conditioning re gas
    O/S window regulator
    Rear seat rail cover
    Number plates and carriers
    Led number plate lights
    Boost guage
    4 bar FPR
    N/S/F outer CV Boot
    O/S/F outer cv boot
    O/S/F inner CV Boot
    N/S/R seat belt
    Cam cover gasket
    Oil pressure switch

    ... And that's it. There's a lot of parts he's giving me with it including a K04 turbo... The car itself is in very good condition, I look after my cars well so he's happy it's going to a good home.

    I'll post and update once I have the car... Cheers for reading...!

    Amongst the huge 2 boxes of spares given, I've been given a K04 turbo with manifold (turbo needs to be refurbished), and a set of 4 S3 Calipers...

    She drives well, although the remap is Very messy, is there anyone who can either install the old default map back or able to modify the current map?

    I also need a stock air filter housing and pipework as there is a huge K&N on the car which is just picking up warm air... Not ideal.

    Also need to get rid of the breather filters and refit the factory Crankcase ventilation pipes, as I do mostly motorway miles so nothing will clog or coke up.
