    Leaning towards an ls2, I’m thinking a blower over a turbo just love the whine it makes!

    Just styled it, changed out suspension, waiting on big brakes and a new diff, interior iv changed up alittle aswell

    Pretty much ready for an engine swap which I’m doing next year, then I can change out somethings and play with the performance

    Haha thanks mate, I love Euro cars. Bought the car stock standard and build her up throughout the years.

    Hard question, if you're on a budget, the R is good bang for your buck! But if you have a little extra cash the S3 is a good choice. Overall the build quality of the Audi is always going to be much better on the S3 vs the R.

    I don't like the interior materials used on the R, seems very plastic and cheap.

    Nice Nano, I think I recalled you mentioned you had an E90 - Nice, I can see a rear BBS LM's (reps?), quad rear diffuser (but you don't have quad exhuast?) front lip, CSL truck ;) is it Carbon Fibre? and painted? blacked out side mirrors. Register on e90 forums, you'll find me under ATTN.

    Yeah it’s my E90 hehe, the front lip, side skirt extensions, rear diffuser and mirror covers are all carbon fibre as are some interior pieces I've found or changed up

    Changed out my rear taillights for all red, the front headlights for blacked out with angel eyes which come on and stay on once the key is in even though my car never had angel eyes, smoked indicators and fog lights.

    My favourite bit inside is the M3 idrive knob I made fit and look flush, had to buy a new one then gut it out and epoxy my old msport idrive knob inside to it and it worked out well bitch to gut them both without breaking anything, aluminium foot pedals for a rhd with the dead pedal where a bitch to find and install too lol

    [​IMG]

    The LMs are reps as I couldn’t find a set at a nice price or with a good offset, ended up getting 19x8.5 front and 19x9.5 rear +38 offset all round running 15mm eibach pro spacers plus a stud conversion so I can run normal fancy purple lug nuts

    Got the quad tip diffuser with the front lip as a package but wanted the quad tip one for when I put the LS2 in it soon

    The rear trunk is a csl one yup you noticed with a damn high kick lol, I had the choice of a carbon fibre one but got the fibre glass painted since the carbon fibre one is a fibre glass one with a carbon fibre top layer plus got the ACS roof spoiler painted too to make it flow better

    I was looking at an aggro style diffuser and roof spoiler but it wouldn't go with the CSL style boot I got I think which turned out good

    It was a mega bitch to fit since I had to cut and drill out everything as was every other thing on the outside like the lips, drilling and cutting carbon/fibre glass is nerve racking with how much it costs if you screw up lol...

    I've done abit too it everywhere but I'm waiting to finish it off with some reliable power in the LS2 :)

    I frequent the E90 forums alot looking for information and tips/tricks but never joined them, maybe I should now

    Good man :)... keep it a sleeper and people will be seriously "WTF" when it takes off at lights.

    I love turbo spool, but there's something about supercharger whine that screams "I mean business" rather than a turbo screaming "there's a party about to happen".

    The whine is so good lol, people can hear that power coming on and know its about to go down. I do love the sound of a turbo spooling up but the whine is something else!

    I'm a simple man, I am rewarding myself a 300 SRT8 as a present for surviving these last 6 ugly years. Just a 6.4L HEMI V8 pumping 350kw and 632nm and when I get bored a 2500k bolt on supercharger that takes it to 780hp. This will be the car I pass on to my son/daughter.

    Enjoy! (Especially from 1:00 on)

    Yeah, pretty tough looking. It would look great in stealth mode IE black paint, windows, wheels and lights.

    I remember when you bought it, that 3 Series honestly is the sexiest i have seen in a long time.

    I wanted one, but i ended up getting a Honda HRV as we were trying for kids also, he is now 15 months old.

    congrats on the NEW Edition BTW, it'll be the hardest thing you and the misses will ever do but it will aos be the most rewarding.

    My Son only in the last few days has learnt how to say Mum, so he is constantly saying Mum, Mum, Mum, Mum, Mum, Mum, my misses is loving it.

    I am still holding on to a little bit of hope tat i can get a Golf R, one day.

    I'll probably be an old fart by the time i get one though

    The only Rexi I have ever liked.

    Mabrook bro! (God bless it)

    PS is that Merrylands? If it is then I'm pretty sure that brick house in the background is my wife's cousins house lol
