Been a member since this place started, had a build thread but decided to junk that due to a few nasty people.

However i think its about time i let people see what ive been up to again with my daily...

If you wanna know about anything or see more pics, post up and ill post a picture. There is so much that's been changed and modded i'm loosing track... Can you spot all the little tricks?

This build never stands still, there is always something to detail or change...

The basics are a 1998 2.0 with a 260 HP Audi 1.8T S3 engine, Porsche 996 330mm Front brakes, Golf R32 285mm Rear brakes, 19inch RS4's, a full on trick interior with real carbon fiber detailing.

Its been in a few mags in the uk, but not with the new totaly remodeled and i must say awesome interior thanks to interior suprimo's Bernie and Louis at Bernard Newbury Auto Interiors, Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, SS9 1ST - +44(0)1702 710211

If you like it cool, drop me a comment. I always up for a chat and I dont mind telling what and how stuffs been done. Ive done everything myself bar the initial engine swap and the trimming. Engine was swapped by my friend who owned the car prior to me getting it 2 years ago. It looked nothing like it does now. (ill find some pics) I helped design the seats. All of the carbon work was done by me and my wife in our front room..

Always interested to see what you guys on the 'Other side' think

Cheers

Phil

It's from a 2010 Audi s3. Same as the TT RS also.

People over hear fit rocco steerings wheels but I think there lines are all wrong. to angular This one matches the speedo being round.

It's actually a direct swap! But I've had the airbag rewired because it now a twin charge and not a single charge.

No fault codes, no airbag lights.

Thanks. It's been hard with no garage but happy with the results.

Is it taking it to far detailing your spare?

18inch R32 spare at that.

Stickers match the now too...
