    This is what I thought, always makes you wonder why if it was such a good deal, that no one else snapped it up?

    The colour most likely off putting for most people. But thats one of my favourite colours and love i on the facelift S3. If your interested get some one to check it out with vagcom, looks very tidy and clean

    ...they don't.

    But I know you will try any excuse to crack out the chinos, Hilfiger shirt and jumper tied around the neck.

    BOT:

    I think the poverty spec of the car won't help. I am sure it has been mentioned recently...you pay ~1k for the paint and only spec Ipod adapter (which is **** anyway) - bizarre.

    Ha Ha!
    Class.

    Busted on the Chinos!
    `Sports casual` I will have you know!

    What about the Gallini jumper, Pod Shoes, luminous socks, and Wet Wet Wet on the Walkman.?

    Anyhoo, I much prefer the two tone seats, lifts the cabin 100%. The bit I would change most about the interior.

    Cheers

    I'll confirm that Paul. Leather cleaner comes out at mine once a month to scrub the colouring out of the drivers seat!

    Well they haven't mentioned the PDC as an optional extra, or the black pack, even though I actually think the standard chrome would have looked better on that colour.

    Recently purchased jeans that turned my hands blue so can imagine.

    But maybe its an excuse for retro-chique and break out the Chinos?

    Standard attire for "dress down Friday" in my office, although I can't afford real Chinos, Maine Clothing by Debenhams do some nice chino style trousers, with turn-ups
