    Default Sepang Blue MY17 8v FL S3

    A little bit about myself I'd like to think I generally have a idea of what and how my cars I'm buying to be built and looks like. With a clear destination it makes modifying it much easier and I generally try not to just modify for the hell of it... as I get older and financial circumstances change I feel with the Audi i'll be going for a much "tamer" build than my last two cars. The MQB platforms eems to be able to extract alot more power for doing less...

    I enjoy the occasional spirited drive and track days such as Winton. Love snowboarding, enjoy a 12/18yo single malt and traveling.

    A quick summary of my previous cars / builds:
    Nissan 200sx Spec R GT - Custom tune 240rwkw (Turbo / cams / fuel pump / injectors / FMIC / intake / exhaust / Bilstien coilovers / Rays wheels)



    MY12.5 MK6 Golf R Panda - GIAC Extreme 200awkw (Intake / Full Exhaust / HPFP / FMIC / Enkei Wheels / Springs / Garage vary carbon kit)

    OK now to the main event:

    Ordered Specs are as follows:

    I initially ordered navarra blue without even seeing the paint color etc... After alot of googling and pictures I decided against it as it just seemed too dark and high maintenance for my liking, Ara blue for me was on the other end of the blue spectrum personally a tad bit too light/bright for me it also seemed just too flat and in low light conditions and ever since I've seen Sepang blue I knew it was one of the must-have colors for me... so I bit the bullet and forked out Audi Exclusive for it as Sepang Blue was no longer a standard option... I did toy with the Merlin/velvet purple idea but it might be too out there, high maintenance and harder to resell down the track. Without further ado here she is on pickup and day 1 of ownership:

    My plans/wish list for the car:

    Rudimental stuff:

    Paint correction with Opticoat Pro Plus - Done
    Tinting - Done

    Intake:
    Remove the snow grate from the airbox - Done
    Temporarily drop in a sports panel filter as the OEM filter is just ridiculously restrictive. - Done
    Integrated Engineering Carbon Intake - Done
    Turbo Muffler Delete BMS - Done
    Inlet Elbow BMS - Done
    Wagner Tuning FMIC to accompany a Stage 2 tune

    Exhaust:
    Milltek downpipe assuming I go a Stage 2.

    Handling:
    034 Motorsport Dogbone mount insert
    034 Motorsport Dynamic+ Lowering Springs
    034 Motorsport Rear swaybar (Maybe)

    Wheels:
    Once the Pirelli P Zeros wear out, I will change to a set of forged wheels and wrap it in Michelin Pilot Sport 4s

    Braking:
    Slotted Rotors or 2 piece rotors
    Uprated Pads
    Braided Lines
    Fluid

    Power:
    ECU Flash tune of some kind in the future.

    Aesthetics:
    Garage Vary Carbon boot lip - Done
    Carbon Mirror cover - Done
    Carbon interior trim

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Snowgrate Removed:




    Paint correction & Opticoat pro+ two coats, wheels, calipers, exhaust tips all coated as well:










    The clarity / gloss and flakes are now much better... can't wait to see it in the sun...


    Tint done with Madico Charcool 35 film:
    Car looks complete now... suns out guns out!

    They are similar in a way, however, the airbox shape is different, and what appealed most to me about this one was it had a sound door enabling a bit more induction noise to be heard.

    Beautiful example of an S3. Love how the blue just pops so much.
