    Cool My New Car

    Having sold my W 2000 Misano Red S3 a couple of years ago I have really missed it and have always kept reading the forum, I've actually missed my S3 that much that now I have bought this. Well I have had this a few months now but not had chance to put some pictures up, so here she is.

    2001 Y S3 AMK in the best colour









    Just done a few subtle mods, N249 Delete, Forge 007PA, ICE Upgrade, Injector clean, and Airbox smoothing. would like to go for the B5 TIP and Re-Map when I have some spare cash. Will be going to AITP next month so hopefully will see most of you there and put names to faces

    Looking good there rhubarb. Agree about the colour (well, exterior at least...). Just watch out for your mirrors going AWOL. See you at AITP on 7th Aug.

    interior certainly different, but give me good wholesome black leather recaroes any day....I would say that - being biased !
    02 plate - 2002 - 225bhp - S3 - Ming Blue - completely standard - nuff said, OK there's a centre armrest, sunroof, BOSE speakers & black leather recaros, oh and the non OE chrome pack !

    I had full leather recaros in my old one, but iv always wanted the heated half leather Alcantara. Ever since I saw my mates black s3 with blue black recaro's, it's just the feel of them there so much better and they break up the interior, and there rare and more of an prestige feel to them than just plain leather but everyone's entitled to there own opinion.

    OK to be fair I haven't seen one up close and personal and the pictures posted don't show it at it's best. So I presume most who have commented have been up close & personal. When looking for an S3....years ago I never even bothered to view any with this kind of interior. This may sound crude, but I remember seeing some half leather seats in various fords, but the full black leather seat option simply looked like a completely different class.

    Hmmmm im not sure, I do like the full leather but iv always wanted the Alcantara, the problem with leather especially black is when it wears you get the horrid cracks and lines makes it look very warn, quite off putting really but with the Alcantara years of ageing make bobbles at worst but thats easily fixable and if it gets stained I have a great cleaner for that (No Wet Wonder Foam) lol works a treat Focus RS has the Blue Black seats there blue cloth rather than Alcantara with leather sides so I can see your point there they were not the best, but it is Fords cheap material lol Il be going to AITP so you can see the seats there if your going.

    Thanks Chris.

    Looking nice mate, well done on the purchase, looks very clean....seats are cool too..

    I have the black and blue leather/alcantara, i love them and think they are so much better than full leather, especially from a grip perspective as well as they dont let you slip as much as with full leather.

    Thanks Nilz I have to say the Blue is stunning and looks amazing with the contrasting Black I would find it very hard to choose from if there had been a silver S3 with blue to look at as well as mine. I totally agree about the grip too loads less bum slip on ours lol. Your not far from me I remember speaking to you on here before when I had my Red S3 from Prospect.
