Well one week in and I've made some progress.

The car had small oil and coolant leaks when I got it, thankfully these were easy fixes with a gasket and a seal.

The oil had been weeping so long it had almost entirely rotted the turbo intake pipe so a new one also went on.

All engine bay trims are now sorted due to a few lucky finds too.

While up on the ramps both rear springs were noticed as being broken, the car has had all new shocks in the last 12 months though which is a bonus! Whats worrying is that it had just gone though an 'alleged'MOT before I bought it but how can they miss that!?!

Ive taken it as an opportunity and ordered up the eibach spring set along with some aero wipers as the existing wipers are shocking, again how can that pass an MOT!?

Looking forward to seeing the ride height on the new springs, really want some 19's to fill the arches now too.

One of the rear springs failed on mine, thankfully this was picked up on mot! You have got me checking pistonheads every day now :roll:

Nice car. The old S3 puts out some serious power and most of the mods are tried and tested.

Darker wheels and black grill will pretty much finish it off. Lovely example Dave.
Can't you post a pic with it next to the R8?
