S3 8p sportback 2+ Daily

Decided to rejoin after nearly 2 years seen as I’ve got something decent to now drive 😂 and the forum beats any other...

Joined in 2016 after buying a BG ff 182 and spending a fair amount over the 3 years of ownership.

settled for something cheap and sensible for a few years to save some £££ seen as I was becoming a homeowner so I was luckily to be passed down from my dad a Mondeo st tdci great daily!!

August this year I had a itch for something fast and I’ve always liked the s3s as they make good power with very little modifications. So settled for a 2010 8p with a good spec

full details of the car and more pictures to follow......

Definitely something like that, dark silver, Anthracite or something. Rip the stupid tints and wind deflectors off.

Is that wing mirror chrome??

I think all S cars have Silver/Chrome mirror caps

I've never seen that option on the interior before. Not sure I like it, but its cool nonetheless. Rest of the spec seems good, and the mods are nice. Must be running near to 400?

I think the interior is abit marmite not ever one will like it but it has grown on me! I’ve Not seen another interior like it yet.. it’s stated 370 apparently no actual graph so that will be next year hopefully I’ll be getting a full custom remap once I’ve added a few little bits, I had a play along side my mates who’s is proven 365bhp and it was evenly matched.

Must go well enough with 370bhp. How much do sportbacks weigh?

It must have an uprated FMIC?

Epic mate with an R-Tech map. My last GTI was running 389bhp 423ftlb on a 2+ setup, was unbelievable... Especially with a LSD!

The APR maps are excellent, no use in getting a custom map unless you intend to make further mods. I have an APR map on mine (I refuse to call it Stage 1,2,3...)

unsure on weight tbh sure more than 1500kg? Certainly pulls well I’m happy with it. It’s more than enough for me as a daily to work and back! To my knowledge it Looks like a standard fmic, the bumpers coming off in the next week or two so will give it a good look over

Calling it Stage # does make my skin crawl a bit but does make it easier to understand its state of tune.

With a standard FMIC you wont be making more than 340bhp imo.

Most recent pics so far is one with @Yorkshire Pudding at the motorist

Last weekend I had a 2 night stay over in the south lakes. The car drove perfectly and handled the roads with ease! Only downside was I hit a large puddle and it’s took my Passenger xenon out! Replacement bulb ordered so fingers crossed that’s the cure!

Very nice!
Had my S3 a couple of months but not had the chance to get away and open it up on some fast B roads apart from a few in Surrey, definitely fancy heading up to Lake District or even Nc500 next year.

NC500 is definitely on the cards in the near future! I get jealous when I see the photos people post! Any excuse for a weekend away in the lakes!

Just a quick one while I’ve got a spare bit of time. I’ve owned the s3 since the beginning of august more or less 3 months give or take. The First 2 weeks I covered 800miles and a £200 fuel bill! Literally couldn’t get out I enjoyed it that much!!

Then I found out I’m expecting my first child so I’m hoping to keep hold of it for as long as possible! While I had some spare cash I booked in at awesome gti for a big service for peace of mind knowing the big stuff is done for 5 years...

So I booked in at awesome gti at the back end of September for:

timing belt kit
Aux belt kit
Water pump
Dsg/Haldex service

With that I also plan to change the oil every 5k with quantum oil and check and replace when the cam follower shows wear. With the HPFP internals upgraded the cam follower needs checking more frequently for wear.

Next year I’m hoping for some more preventative maintenance by replacing the oil pick up pipe (common fault for blockage) and sump clean and while the sumps off makes sense to replace cam chain and tensioner and also the balance shaft delete with can also fail prematurely.

Treated my self to a Black Friday deal

p3 multi boost gauge.

fitting was simple and the quality of the new vent housing and gauge is spot on! 10mins to install

I

to install the boost gauge was really simple pop the fuse box cover off then slide the existing vent out

Once that was removed it was a case of plugging into the obvs port running the cable behind the dash into the fuse box then sliding the new vent with gauge Into the dash and connecting the controller box to the wire ran from the obd and all done 👌

Once I’ve figured out how to work the gauge I’ll do a update! Look forward to my 0-60 times 😂
