    Dave B's S3 Diary

    So 6 months have passed, which probably means it's update time :) The car has been great, but with a growing family the time has come to part with the trusty S3.

    Sooo, I managed to get these fitted at the weekend. Mocked up to check it all fits: ...and finally in place behind the wheel (please ignore the scabby wheel, it is in dire need of a refurb): I'm really happy with the pedal feel and stopping power, more than enough for fast road driving...

    **Warning:S3dave's adjustable tie bars**

    Well this is quite worrying. I have the mild steel versions which have been on the car about 18 months, the cars in for it's MOT on Saturday morning so I'll have a good nosey whilst it's on the ramps. I might even change them anyway for peace of mind!

    People with 3" Downpipes - where were they fitted?

    I paid Pipewerx to fit my downpipe, sports cat and system, £200 and 2 hours later - done. No swearing or ******* about and no knocks or bangs afterwards.
