Hi Guys
Picked myself up a S3 2002 model 2 weeks ago
Black with leather recaros, zenons,6 cd changer, chrome mirrors, bose
original irish car with a full folder of service history
never modified and 100% original, rare enough then.

Already iv fixed the armrest, full valet, 2 new coil packs and have to investigate a boost leak.
Not a great start you have to agree, but i'm liking the car all the same
Any pointers or advice on the car would be great, ie , best place for diagnostics, parts etc

thanking you in advance

Are you going to spray the chrome part of the front grill black and put it back on? the front grille looks cat without it.

Best of luck with the car.

have to sand it down, prime it and spray with about 5 coats of gloss black, and 2 coats of laquer
Seeing if i liked it off first before i bought the sprays, and i do, the chrome can look a bit dated, and i also
have the chrome mirrors, a bit ott
