Tell us a bit about your vehicle?
I have owned the car for around 6 months which was purchased in bone stock condition before I was let loose on it. Originally, I was looking at VW Golf Gti Mk7's, but decided against it as the S1's are equipped with the famous Audi Quattro 4WD and have the ability to run reliable aftermarket hardware and software.
What sort of modifications have you added to your vehicle?
- 25mm Lowering springs
- Blacked our front and rear badges
- Honeycomb front RS style grill
- Poly-bushed underside
- Front mounted intercooler
- Uprated performance clutch
- Cold air intake and TT inlet pipe
- Sports-cat downpipe
- Stage 2 ECU software
What are your future plans for your Audi S1?
Without spending big money there isn't a huge amount (performance wise) I can carry out on the S1. I'm looking into a high pressure fuel pump and a short shifter for the time being - these will help the drivability for sure! In terms of additional plans, I would like to purchase some carbon mirror caps along with some carbon exhaust tips. Perhaps down the line I wouldn't mind fitting some new shoes to her... most likely some Bola CSR's or O.Z Ultraleggera's. The next major tuning modification would be bolting the IS38 Turbo used to propel the Golf R, Audi S3 & Lean Cupra. However, this may not come in 2019.
Tell us why you are representing Mattallics Detailing...
I'm really chuffed to be a part of the Mattallics Detailing brand representative team. Recently I've been determined to learn more about detailing and safely maintaining the shine/cleanliness of my car, so this is a perfect opportunity for me! Additionally I aim to not only promote the products and services that are offered, but to also introduce others into using the products, building both of our social platforms and developing a good working relationship with the Matt and the brand.
Make sure you give @ben._.price_ a follow on Instagram to keep up with the latest info on the S1's progression, to be the first to know of promotions and offers and not forgetting the 10% discount code to use on the website: AUDIS1

We go into detail on the issues the mini was having and how we managed to resolve them. Our mini Has been away for a few weeks whilst its been having some deep engine work being carried out in preparation to hit the track! Whilst we had access to parts of the engine, various tuning went down and a bit of an interior strip out took place.
