    Lol I apologise, I wasn't quite sure whether or not that's what you meant and didn't want to post a reply age related in case I looked like an idiot

    I'm 21, bought my 8L S3 just after I turned 20 and then this one a few weeks ago but I'll be 22 in July. Hopefully insurance will take another drop in August seeing as I'm another year wiser

    No real plans, just little bits and bobs like the plates, carbon fibre door pillars etc, maybe change the wheels and suspension but that will be in 6-12 months time. I think given the value and high quality of the car, it doesn't really need a lot changed, I just like adding individual touches to make it 'mine'

    Reckon you will get a remap at some stage? Or just gonna enjoy the standard power? Did you do any performance mods to your 8L?
    If you dont mind me asking how much is your insurance? lol my girl friends insurance is stupid low compared to mine My last quote on an S3 was whe ni was 20 that was about £1,700 something i think. Not bad for at the time for 20 and 1 ncb. 21 now with 2ncb hoping my insurance goes down a bit

    Possibly, I took out a 2 year extended warranty with the dealer when I bought the car, I've gone right through the small print and my partner who is a motor trader checked it too and it definitely covers the clutch, so if I mapped it and the clutch went I would take the map back off and take the car back, my partner also owns a garage/MOT station so would provide me with an independent report saying it was wear and tear or something...

    Nope the 8L stayed standard performance wise, I liked it the way it was and didn't want to tamper with it in case I ran into problems

    My insurance last year (August) on the old S3 was £700 - I added my mum and dad as named drivers which took about £150 off the price, that was when I was 20, 2 NCB, 3 points (SP30) and 2 at fault claims (long story, both 50/50 due to a insurance company full of reprobates). When I changed it to the new S3 I was charged a pro rata premium of £119 from 31st May - 11th August, so approx 2 and a half months, quite pricey

    This year I'm expecting to pay around £800 ish - my points have expired, I'm another year older and I think both claims no longer count, but obviously this car is of a higher value as well and prices have been rising in general. As long as it's under 1k I'm happy!

    Thanks
    Lauryn

    I got the lettering in Carbon Fibre in the legal font. I ordered it from:
    SCOTTISH FLAG Number Plates - Scotland Saltire Alba on eBay (end time 30-Jun-11 11:34:16 BST)
    Its a company in Glasgow, and if you message him he will send you pics of what your number plate will look like. I didnt go for the Scotland/ Euro flag on mine though.

    I also wrapped my B-Pillars in the Carbon Fibre Wrap:



    They are really easy to put on and look great and work well with the carbon lettering on my number plate.
    I got the carbon wrap from here:
    Carbon Fibre Wrap vinyl vinyal 500mm x 1500mm FREE P&P | eBay UK
    The plate looks good Ewan, not sure if i like the carbon fibre personally.

    I upgraded the DRL and sidelight bulbs to some LEDs and gave the car a wash earlier this evening to enjoy the last of the sun



    I'm really happy with the car, going to get some bits and pieces carbon fibre wrapped soon, then new wheels and suspension, and then a Milltek at some point

    Thanks

    Yeah I'm really happy, they make a big difference but I can't get the warning lights inside to go off so need to do something about them.

    I'd rather give them another gesture instead of a smile

    I have a company car now and all my fuel, insurance, tax etc is paid for, I'm going to take advantage of that and put a deposit on a house with the money from the car. I love it to bits but I can't justify it sitting for one week, sometimes two weeks at a time without being used, it's a total waste

    Thanks

    No baby, just lots of this:





    I need the space and I pay pretty much nothing for it so it's £k's in my pocket instead of sitting in a car I never get to drive anymore. Don't make this any harder for me!
