    Thanks. It's coming on.

    Just noticed your wing mirror...lol. They look like the wing men's helmets in the 1980's film flash Gordon! Classic!

    Hi and welcome to ASN sweet looking S3 you have there, good buy with the brakes too. Have a read of the Stickys there's some great info on there for you to get the modding bug.

    Looks like you have hit on a very well looked after motor (bar the mirrors :P ) enjoy it especially the stopping power I'd love porka brakes.

    Very nice. Like the look of the brakes.

    I'd take the mirrors off straight away, they're awful.

    BTW - Are you missing a wheel nut?

    I guess so, at least he eliminated the chance of anyone doing it again by putting those beauties on.

    Im in the process of chasing down a set of oem S3 mirrors as we speak but payday is still so far away which is a shame as your all right why would you do it spend all the money to ruin it with adding these ebay specials,

    I need to find one that is breaking as ive got a small list of bits and bobs ive found out i need

    Definitely agree - lose those mirrors! You're missing part of the front lower grille round the off-side fog-lamp I think?

    hi kelvin, just thought id tell you your tires are the wrong profile for the wheel size and car, its likely your speedo will be way out, so watch it through those speed cameras!
    seems the previous owner wanted some stretch and has fitted 215/35, when in fact to match oem circumference you really need 225/40 or 235/35. of course it does depend on the width of the rims.

    car is a lovely colour btw, and im jealous of the brakes!
