    I would have a word mate.... more of a 'you do realise that's my picture of my S3 you have used there...' kinda thing... other thing you can argue about is you number plate... while not clear it hasn't been 'removed' either...

    He missed some words, so it should read
    S3s are so played out!

    Meaning they are done, finished, and time to move on to something different?

    Thats how I read it any way.

    'Yank' sounds a little like the word I was going to use...

    It's the chap on here called cort with the blacked out s3 (I fb stalked him) calling s3's played out..... Lol.

    It does look awesome IMO and for that reason I'm not going to ask them to remove but it would be good to get a few things changed,
    It would be nice to have the plate completely white, this photoshoppers got skills, it shouldnt be too hard not that you can really see a lot of it anyway.
    It's MY car and regal had very little to do with it.

    The pic may have convinced me to click on that weitec link at the top of the screenshot....

    Takes me back to when parking attendant tried to do me for non-diplay of a ticket when it was on the dash...even the pic she took you could see it.....anyway.

    I wrote to the council and explained that it was a show and shine car, and you do not have authorisation to take pictures of the car without the organisers consent. The muppets believed it.......

    This wouldnt happen to be the Regal Motorsport in Southampton would it?

    Original one looks better, cant see the point of lowering so much that any hard driving will see wheels scrubbing the arches, but maybe im not into street porn as much as driving.. Horses for courses

    The tarmacs look great anyway, especially with the lows.

    As for using the pic, seeing as they're a company it's a bit off but it's out there in the public domain. Maybe someone emailed it and said use it and they assumed they had the rights. As for showing the plate... well you put the pic up without it blanked out anyway...

    Just sayin' that I personally wouldn't care.

    As a car lover I love the pic and I think it looks pretty sick, hence not demanding they remove it, just would have been nice to have been asked so I could give them the correct details. For the record id have told the to photoshop the shizz out of it. They did after all take the photo from somewhere with my contact details are present, pm email and phone number on all adverts.
