    thanks mate, even my gf commented on how people always look at the car. she said that it came up in conversation at work that she had an s3 and the guy commented how 3 doors are relatively rare. i reckon it must be something a bit unusual if chicks notice the difference...

    talking of her in doors heres a photo of her handy work one weekend, rear passenger side...



    as the plan for me to take the car eventuated a bit sooner than first expected i decided i wanted the car in mint standard condition before the tweaking starts...

    continued on with a few bits and pieces to get the car in a good original condition. the alpine kuftec tv / ipod player did work when i viewed the car but in true good fashion decided not to work when i bought the car...



    i wasn't a big fan anyway as it had a remote receiver stuck to the dash below the head unit which i thought stuck out like dogs balls. i removed the rns-e unit which also had a stuck dvd in it. i removed the dvd from the unit and all the extra equipment for the ipod and reinstalled...

    as i said in a previous post the s3 is now in my possession sooner than originally expected, therefore a few plans started to hatch in my head. i have read a couple of forum posts recently that reckon the s3 lacks the punch it should have left the factory with and doesn't really deserve to wear the s badge; i would be inclined to agree with this. the only solution, stage 2+. the current plan...
