    Solar Orange Audi S3 - out with the old, in with the new

    After owning my Nogaro Blue 8L S3 for over a year and a half I've decided to upgrade, to an 8P S3

    I picked this up yesterday, it's a 2008 Audi S3 in Solar Orange, 21,000 miles, full heated leather, sat nav, privacy glass, flat bottom multifunction steering wheel etc, it's absolutely beautiful.

    Here are a few pictures:







    It's a little ostentatious but I like that lol. No real plans for it other than a possible remap and maybe some different wheels, that's it really.

    C&C welcome

    Cheers

    I was looking at a Solar S3 when I bought mine, just don't think I could drive an orange car. They look sweet in the metal though, just not very "me".

    I'm the same but my friend has one in Sprint Blue and my old S3 is Nogaro Blue so I fancied a change

    I'm not too sure? This is from the factory and hasnt been painted but I dont think I've seen any sportbacks etc in orange now that I think of it?

    They are a little out there, I've taken a slagging in work tonight over it but I love it. It is very bright though lol.

    I was never planning to buy a new car right now, I knew I wanted an 8P S3 or a 135 M Sport next but I drove past this one so many times that I decided just to go in and go for it, otherwise I would still happily be driving the blue one!

    Good plan, a friend of mine is coming to hopefully buy the 8L tomorrow so it would still be local, could hopefully grab a few photos together.
