Wow looks amazing, love the way it's sitting.

Keep looking at 172 cups as the S3 feels a little sensible at times, finding a good one is quite hard.

Nice to see one looking this clean, a lot of them are a bit tattered now. Look after it!

Looks fantastic, I love the decals on the sills, lovely touch. Could you tell us a bit more about the Ktec Stealth? I take it that it's supposed to keep the OEM look with the downturned diesel exhaust look, is it as quiet as it's name suggests?

Ktec are a Renault sport tuning specialist. And yes, I didn't want to cut and damage the rear bumper so I have gone for the ktec stealth exhaust. Same performance as the straight out of the bumper and saves you from cutting the bumper

sorry steven

and Frank, I first jet wash the car, then add a layer of snowfoam, followed by another jet wash then hand wash using Meguiars Ultimate Wash & Wax and rinsed off with jet wash again. then I clayed the car with Meguiars clay bar kit. Next sep was a machine cut using various grades of Menzerna cutting compound. I then sealed the paint with Carlack 68 - Long Life Sealant. Next step i changed the pad on the machine polisher and used Meguiars Deep Crystal Polish, then lastly I used Poorboys Nattys Paste Wax Blue, applied by hand (which I may add it was very hard to resist eating it and omg it smells so nice lol)
