Evening all.

Just introducing myself.

I am new to Audi forums of any sort but have owned many Audi's in the past although I currently rock a 3 Dr 8P S3 2007 model 08 registered. Manual in black with black leather and heated Clubsport front seats. Bose system linked to RNS-e and that's about where the spec ends....

Since owning I have done virtually nothing bar a full service (excluding plugs, air filter, pads etc as these will all be upgraded when the performance upgrades start) but including Cambelt, water pump, Haldex, runner flap delete with metal blanks, full decoke of the inlet valves, short shift/side reduction and that is about where I am.

Looking forward to finding out more about this vehicle as I have some plans to bring the car up to date and as much as I can, create a sleeper vehicle.

Speak to you guys soon!

I am absolutely gobsmacked, but I don't!!

I didn't realise I am photo free!!

I shall get the car cleaned and then post.

But promise to look past the dog guard.....

Forgot to say, registered March 08, done 89k with a full MD and specialist history and only three previous owners to me so no journeyman car at all....

On a new tact.....
I also have some new wheels (only to me and the car!) for the car - 8J0601025S is what I believe they are known as.
No tyres but have until spring next year for those but have always liked Toyo Sport for compliance and grip along with Goodyear Eagle NCT's for the same reason- thoughts on tyres would be grand as well considering affordability and performance, this ain't no cheque book queen...!!
I'm hoping the TTS alloy's will fit well being an inch wider than the standard 8P 2007 wheel -8P0 601 025 AJ that are currently fitted (I have in fact decided I will leave these ones on for winter but will get them shod in winter tyres (thoughts again?) and possibly sprayed grey if I can get a way around the silver centre cap? - see picture) and therefore hope they fill up the arch nicely when the VWR sports shocks and springs are fitted but wonder if they will need spacers.......?
I would again like to get these new wheels ( only paid £103 for all 4 alloys inc centre caps and wheel nuts!!) done in a nice grey colour to contrast with the black bodywork (which is being machine polished and ceramic coated in a couple of weeks - maybe there's a before and after session I can post for you guys?) ! would also like some ideas on those grey colours so if there is anyone out there that has this information.....
