    Dolphin S3's everywhere!!!

    ok, i bought my dolphin grey S3 as they were fairly unique as in you didn't see that many, i now have only two S3's locally that i see quite regularly, and they are both Dolphins!!!

    I cant blame them for wanting the fastest colour, but still!!

    Anyway, theres an 03 and a 52 plate in Sheffield so if your on here, speak up chaps

    I've got a Dolphin, but it's black ones that are everywhere around me.
    On my street, in my village, in my work carpark - black ones everywhere.

    Beat a fellow Dolphin off the line the other day - Union Street Aberdeen if it was anyone on here? - 17" Avus on it.
    That and one other Dolphin I see sometimes on my commute are the only ones i've seen around here.

    S3's around me seem to come in waves I won't see any for 2-3 weeks then I'll drive past three in a row.

    There is a girl who drives a noggy s3, damn she's hot! I was thinking of making a 'join Audi-sport.net' sign, for the greater good of course.

    Im quite lucky that mine is in the super rare colour of ahem silver, which as we all know is THE fastest colour by far and there is only one S3 in my area which is the ever popular noggy blue but it doesnt look like the guy has moved it for weeks and weeks, every time i cycle past it, it seems to grow more and more grimy everytime, such a shame to see that IMO.

    Silver is the best


    think the Dolphin Grey ones appeal to girls once they hear a Dolphin is involved they are hooked





    Black is just a knightmare to keep clean look good for 5 mins then the weather ruins them

    I know what you mean about colours and the odd places you see them!

    my A3 is mineral grey like Maz's S3, and it's a fairly rare colour.

    However, whenever I DO see another mineral grey car, it always seems to be 1.6 4 door A3s!

    Why is that?

    Slow drivers like to buy them perhaps?
