    Been very quiet on here recently and manly mooching around. Since my last progress post somewhat has changed.
    The car has needed a clutch for a while, therefore a SACHS clutch was fitted after my holiday in Septmeber.
    I have also been suffering with a missfire on idle for about 5 months. That was finally fixed by replacing the inlet diaphragm After alot of other parts being fitted beforehand like boost solenoid. :sadlikeClick here to enlargeLuckily fixed on my warranty)

    Then came my MOT everything was golden apart from finding my car had a cracked coilsrping. God knows how long its been like that for:scared2:
    I had a service at the same time, all parts supplied by [USER=62977]@mjr901[/USER] Click here to enlarge

    Now the cars running sweet i've had a spare few ££ which has allowed me to buy a few goodies.
    Again BIG thanks to [USER=62977]@mjr901[/USER] 901 for supplying the TTS engine covers and the extremley rare screws required Click here to enlarge

    I really rate the REVO CAI, Fitting wasnt bad, but a little fiddly. Ive had it on for a few hundrerd miles. Has a real nice sound to it, has a bit of chatter from time to time Click here to enlarge I will get out over christmas with my go pro and get a decent video.
    I am also planning on fitting the forge DV over christmas Click here to enlarge

    Early next year i plan on getting my diffuser warped gloss black, heres a cheeky mock up Click here to enlarge

    And in the meantime im on the lookout for a non res turboback exhaust.
    Im either after a millitek or BCS system. Just see what pops up on the used market !

    Thanks for reading !

    Thank you very much, even standard I think these cars are pretty aesthetically pleasing Click here to enlarge

    I love the car, it's has the full package for me. Although I have had times this year when I've thought, what the **** an I doing as it hasn't been a cheap year in Maintenence/repairs. But I think I've tidied the car up since ownership. And fingers crossed it doesn't need much doing to it for a good while Click here to enlarge

    Little mod this evening.
    I could justify the cost or the potential risk of the Auto OSIR footrest not fitting.
    So i bought this one off eBay for no more then 12quid. It requires a little DIY to get it to fit. but not a bad result,
    May look at getting some smaller headed screws on there before long.

    P.S Please excuse the mess.

    I managed to grab these 18" BBS Audi speedlines yesterday for an absoloute steal. They will need a refurb mind. But still these were extremley cheap, ive seen them go for double what i paid !

    I was intending on perhaps a colour change anyway, so i did a little photoshop.

    Think ill probably go for a light polished silver. Although the devil inside me says go GOLD !!

    Also i bought a Audi S3 8V gearknob. Really pleased with it ! Although wasnt as straight forward as i first imagined. Although thanks to the help of @<b><u><a href="https://www.ukcorsa-d.com/forum/member.php?u=15028" target="_blank">Nik</a></u></b> keaspholm I finally got it on !

    Hi Everyone. few changes recently.
    Start of January i went to fit my Forge DV to find a lot of parts were missing. A couple of calls to forge and a few quid lighter it's all now plumbed in. I love the sound of it, chatters all the time. unsure of any gain right now. But hopefully will help when it comes to remapping.
    Vids of the DV below

    While i was at my mates having it fitted. I also had coming home lights activated via VAGCOM. I haven't stopped playing with these since haha (Link below, i can't embed it for some reason)

    The last few weeks I've been hunting for a turbo back exhaust. Took a little longer then i thought on the used market for something decent to appear, and a decent helpful seller to go along with it too! I bought it off a forum member on here on thursday and by friday morning while getting ready to go to work, it was here !
    Full 3" Milltek Turboback 200 cell sports cat. this should be going on at some point next week.

    I will be looking at getting aHPFP next month and then get it booked into R TECH for a stage 2+ Map Click here to enlarge
    My wheels are slowly coming along, there in a real state and taking a lot more prep then what we first imagined.

    thanks for looking

    how much was paint correction fi you don't mind?

    also I like s3s, not surre about the colour, wind deflectors or the new wheels, prefer the old wheels myself. lol

    I thought the RS3 was the shape after this? eg this ones top model was a s3? always liked them though. interios especially.

    Paint correction was only £130 from a local detailer Click here to enlarge

    The color makes it in my opinion, looks very nice and subtle in the flesh. Originally I wanted a bright color, but I suddenly noticed I didn't want my car looking like a ST or VXR haha. As for the wheels, there nots everyone's taste, but split rims are very popular in the vag scene.

    They did make a RS3 in this shape (8P) but they only come in 5 door which was a bummer. There a real nice car to be around and in Click here to enlarge the interior is probably my favourite part, if you've read my thread you'll see I wanted one specifically with the RS4 Recaros Click here to enlarge

    Had the Milltek fitted a good couple of weeks now. Im over the moon with it. In hindsight im pleased i didnt bother going Powervalve. Im happy with this, the noise when just tootling around is nothing. The noise of the exhaust only really comes in at around 3.5k.

    Heres a little vid from the other day
    http://iconosquare.com/p/11986894643....MZugQYZG.dpuf

    Plans for the next few weeks are take it to Ultimate dubs make some noise around the place

    Decide on a HPFP and take it to R tech

    Hi Everyone ..

    Its been a rather long time since i last updated. This is just due got being a bit lazy and new work taking more of my free time.

    Lets go back to March, the faces of the wheels arrived back and looked perfect. i offered up some BBS caps and thought it looked a nice contrast.

    These were then sent off to a mate who was taking care of the barrels and would eventually build them back up.

    In the meantime I started to buy other bits for the car to reach the magic 360BHP I was chasing.
    I bought the Autotech HPFP internals from TSR ... i decided against buying the LOBA pump.
    [USER=62977]@mjr901[/USER] supplied a RS4 return valve

    I got these both fitted by my local mechanic. Neither were exactly straight forward to fit but none the less sorted eventually.

    It was late March at this point and the car was ready for the famous Stage 2+. I started to shop around for quotes on remaps. I had heard great things about R Tech. None the less i shopped around, Revo and APR dealers were all after ludicrous amounts. (around £700)
    Where as R tech is a independent mapper and with one of the best reputations out there for half the price. However Nikki would want to replace my Forge DV to a Rev G. I decided to go with R Tech (sods law had the longest wait out of any of the firms i contacted)

    I didn't really drive the car very much or at all hard until i was to have the car mapped. As i was informed the car wouldn't run right untill the HPFP was mapped in.

    May 4th arrived. This was the big day. I was staying an hour and a half away from Hinckley and I was booked in first thing at 9.30AM.
    However i really couldn't sleep haha and woke up at 4am. I couldn't sit around any longer so i went out and did some site seeing not so far from Hinckley to waste time. I'm guessing after this seasons football, everyone knows who Leicester city are :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:


    Eventually I arrived at R tech and they started working on the car straight away.


    To begin with they struggled to keep the car warm, for some reason the car was cooling down very quickly.
    However after 3 hours of tinkering it was done. I'm pleased to now say my cars running .........


    So i didn't hit the figure i wanted by 7.7bhp. I won't lie ... I WAS GUTTED.
    However i was given several reasons why ...
    *There was a mix of 97/99 Ron fuel
    *The colipacks needed replacing ..the idle of the car is lumpy
    *I was using OEM spark plugs instead of iridium tipped ones.
    *The clutch couldn't cope with much more power.

    I was also advised id need to run the car on 5w 40 oil and preferably millers Nanodrive

    Bringing all this into consideration and giving the car a good drive home, I got over it very quickly hahah :joycat::joycat:

    Heres a graph. To my discovery the car wasn't already running a map as i was told when i had bought it, which i was pleased to hear.


    You tell me what you think of the graph as i haven't a clue haha

    moving on from there i started my new job and was given a company car .., I had no idea what id collect. they told me id probably get a 3 door corsa more then likely. but on the day i started i was pleasantly surprised with a Hyundai i40 1.6TDI. i won't bore you for too long. But for what it is, I'm really impressed with all the mod cons on board and how comfy it is and how much go it has in it for a small diesel engine!



    May Bank holiday arrived and the wheels were very close to completion.


    They had taken a VERY long time to clear up the pitting on the dish. however 30 hours worth of graft they were sorted.
    Heres a pic robbed from my mates IG


    May day came and it was the day i got the wheels fitted. I decided against the red BBS enters, i felt it was a little bit of a overkill and stuck with the OEM's off my original wheels.


    personally from this view i think the wheels look a little gash. i haven't really taken any more pictures. However this doesn't do them any justice !! I really need to get some better photos in the light.

    I have recently just got round to getting some new plugs and replacing the coil packs with r8 ones for the hell of it swell as getting nano drive oil.


    Thats all for now sadly.

    Theres not a lot more I'm after doing for the time being.

    Just some springs, spacers, black rear diffuser and respray the front bumper.

    As always thanks for looking !
