Haven't done much more to the car lately so there hasn't been much to update on here. Got a hectic few weeks coming up but after that it should be full steam ahead.

Had to move the car the other day without any interior so had to get a bit creative with the drivers seat:



Needs the legs chopping but I think its got potential  :grin:

Paint it black, say it's a new kind of carbon weave and say it's super lightweight. Sorted.

Moving over to Flickr, sorry for the broken picture links!

Picked up 2 major pieces of the AWD conversion on Friday, R32 fuel tank and S3 prop. Gave the tank a quick clean up yesterday and it came up a treat, and i'll give the prop and lick of paint before it goes onto the car. Need to pick a few brackets and mounts up from TPS then the rear end will be ready to swap over.



Next on the list is to find an S3 box and O/S/F drive shaft ready for when the engine is back.

As Alex said, managed to pick up a 02Q and transfer box last month which was swiftly dropped off at AKS for some goodies. Going to have all the strengthening mods done as well as having a diff fitted at the same time.



Also had some good news from JP who's building the engine, after some long delays with parts the motor should be buttoned up by the end of the week all being well!  :drool:

So after a long wait, delayed parts and a fair few quid I finally have the engine back!  :jumping: :jumpmove: So all being well over the next few weeks the standard BWA will be coming out along with the baby K03 and the new beast will be going in. Still need to pick up a few bits, mainly engine mounts and manifold kit so I can get everything bolted on before I drop it in.

Few engine p0rn pics:









The B16's are back at Bilstein HQ too, so once they've been fully refurbished and sent back the rear subframe can be swapped for the S3 one.
