    My New S3







    I got a full black leather interior with it but unsure whether to swap it out yet.

    Hi, looks like an unmolested example. How much if you dont mind me asking and what options does it have? Is that sunroof I can just about see in the pic. I personally couldnt live with that interior, get rid of it pronto and revert to black on black, the bumble bee look only works with Imola S3s.

    I'd forget how it looks (not bad at all imho) and stay with the grippy alcantera. I was forever sliding about on the black leather.

    I do quite like the yellow i have to say, hmmmmm....

    Sunroof
    Heated Seats
    Bose Symphony
    63k on the clock

    9k inc. the extra interior. Its so nice to have a nice, quiet, civilised car again!

    Wouldnt mind the RNS-E unit, and of course a remap.

    Id imagine you'd struggle to get good money for the yellow interior but the black leather goes for anything between 4-600 on ebay depending on condition

    Id keep the yellow, i like it on the black S3 doesnt look too garish.
    Looks nice and a decent buy for the cash

    alcantara is very grippy unlike the leather seats which after a sharp corner your sitting in the passenger seat!

    Keep the yellow, I like it.
    I knew it was an option but I don't think I've ever seen it in a black S3!

    You forgot to mention that they also bobble up, which is why you keep an electric shaver in the car, and I bet you have special lotion to rub into it after you give it a shave huh?

    it does look bright but i bet it will grow on you, i wounder how much it would cost if a decent interior specialist re trimmed the alcantra in a cool one off colour? Sell the black leather to fund it??

    I've seen an rs4 before with charcol grey alcantra it look so so good same front seats as ours, wish that was an option for the S3 it would look so good in the black and grey S3's

    I have the white alcantra in mine and it's all in as new condition bar the drivers seat which is slightly off white has a dirty look and it pissis me off! It's an arse to keep looking good it needs a shave every week and you can't wet it too much to clean it
