    My S3...Heads up

    Ok guys. Time has come for me to change my car and just wanted to give whoever might be interested a little heads up as I am selling her. Its a sad sad time and I have done her up to how I think they should of came out of the factory without going OTT. The car will be for sale in April and just wanted to offer it to a fellow forum member the way it is at the moment otherwise she will be going back to standard and then sold. Anyways the spec.

    3dr Phantom black facelift
    Registered 2010 '59' owned from new.
    Usual S3 spec: Heated seats, dual zone climate, FBMSW, DRL's etc etc
    16k

    Optional extras: BOSE, auto lights/wipers, tyre pressure monitor, magma red/black silk nappa leather, folding mirrors, 6cd multichanger, folding/auto dimming mirrors.

    My mods:
    Revo stage 1 done by Revo HQ in July with SPS switch (3 switchable performance maps including stock)
    Evoms air intake with heatwrap ( Sounds amazing and adds further 10-15bhp )
    Milltek Non-res cat back exhaust (again changes whole sound of car )
    HnR springs -25mm
    Black Audi front rings
    S3 tax disc holder
    Lamin-X tint headlight film
    Privacy glass all round
    Map reading lights
    1 month old Michelin Pilot Sport 3 tyres (cost me 550)
    All standard parts are still kept in garage and will come with car.
    Car running about 320bhp

    Really don't want to change her back to standard after all my work and anyone that knows about the mods will know there is some cash spent there including fitting it all. The car will also come with a full professional detail (200) that was already booked for summer prep so will look better then when it left the showroom.

    Anyways some pics.








    Looking for 24700 as it is shown otherwise she is going back to standard.
    PM if interested. Cheers folks.

    Lovely car, shame to sell, but hey we all have to be more realistic at times, hence my derv's lol

    Is it me or do the tailpipes ruin the whole rear end look, if they were black wouldnt be a problem, but stands out like a sore thumb IMHO matey, just an opinion, no offense.

    Guess though nobody gets to see the rear end that long given how they shift huh lmfao.

    i think the fact they are so clean makes them look like kerry katonas nostrils... mine dont look knowhere near as big as that... think its something to do with the innier part being cleaned!

    I never really got the idea why they stuck the pipes on the one side, looks stupid when you consider rest of car design, styling, even the civics have a tailpipe designed around the rear bumper as such, but an S3 8P, of course not, stupid us lol.
