    Never knew they did a special edition tbh.....

    Different gear gaiter, gear knob and like you said a few stickers and on RS4 wheels by the looks of it Edit: and possibly larger brakes?

    No such thing!!!

    It just looks like someone has got a bit excited with the stickers and sills, quattro sticker on the front bumper, the bootlid too.

    Doesnt look too bad though, it has an 8P gearknob and handbrake fitted by the looks of it and the discs look good too.

    "Origanal example"?

    Sounds like a painful mashup of paper folding and butt***

    I saw this the other day too, terrible how garages haven't a clue about the cars they're selling, looks like a respectable garage too at first glance.

    Bird had spotted it and emailed them..

    "A customer drove by at the weekend and fell in love with the car so sorry its sold, we are trying to
    replace it but im very very fussy on what i buy, the next one needs to be gorgeous if i can track one down i will
    let you know

    Regards"

    Not fussy enough to actually check what they are selling is what they advertise it as...

    Wonder if the owner will appear on here :S

    No categorically in the UK there were no 8L S3 special editions, if there were i would have been selling them back in the day.

    I think 8P S3 calipers have been discussed before as not being retrofit on 8L...

    Those calipers in the picture look more like porsche brembos with an S3 sticker as the standard S3 8P caliper looks like this...



    TT-RS/RS3 brake calipers look more like the ones on that car but are bigger from memory

    I would stick to the normal caliper upgrade recommendations tbh...

    More sitting and waiting, got in mind the car I want, a load of upgrades and changes, got to wait until July before I get the TT from the bird and then flog that or p/x it for an S3 so still got a while to go....
