..31st March 2006 - No major updates to report over the winter, the car has been running sweet as, no problems at all.

3rd May 2005- Me haring round the Nurburgring in Germany, what a fantastic weekend! Latest mods include :-1.

7th March 2005- Put the wheels that were originally on the Golf (see bottom of page), on the S3 today but I don't think they suit it. I think the S3 suits thicker spoke wheels.
4th March 2005- Today I watched the Golf drive off :-( Very very sad day considering all the effort that went into it. Also today I watched the S3 drive up :-) With 4 wheel drive and 225bhp to start with, its a much better base for BIG power ;-)

Powerflow Custom Exhaust made by Top Gear in Burnley - since been re-done with slash cut tips to follow contours of rear bumper .

The Exhaust prior to final fitment

Drastic Measures! - Cutting the spare wheel well out for extra room under the boot floor for the R32 exhaust.
