    Strange...thats the exact car that I have now (60 plate 2.0 tdi GT 140) and looking to swap out for an S3. The Scirocco is a great car, just seems strange that I only registered a few moments ago lol

    Lmao, I think both the scirocco and the a3 are gorgeous, loved my a3 but I need a diesel as I'm now going to be doing daft miles and the bluemotion GT seemed right. little bit of a change from the a3 too just to mix things up a bit!

    You modify yours at all?

    Not really a fan of the Scirocco's. My mate bought Scirocco GT last month in white as well not fussed myself. But you could of done worse
    Enjoy the new car when you collect Do you have any plans for it? Beside lowering?

    Lows, Wheels, maybe smoothing the front plate recess and Carbon bits. Nothing drastic.

    heres the A3 never did anything to it other than spraying the wheels and rather large sub and amp

    yeah they will but the scirocco has bigger arches so think I'll need some bigger rims. When slammed the rears look super wide

    I think you will enjoy it...my favourite bit is the RCD 510 with ipod interface....it's really nice to use and means you dont get bored on long trips lol. The 140 goes alright after 20,000 miles as well :-)

    Nice choice again mate

    Yeah I had a bit of a look see, alot better than the ipod dock in the a3, theres no tracklist theres no adaptor for my phone so it always falls out and dosent charge :-(

    and itll be more of a goer than my a3 I had a 1.6 petrol 102bhp due to insurance prices so its defo a step up.

    Air
    RS4 Brakes
    CS's and retrim

    This car is amazing, I am looking at getting air. Trip to plush me thinks. 20"s yes. Retrim no, got black Vienna leather that'll do for me. I am looking at some very nice carbon bits though. Smoothed front bumper as chris's too. No rs4 brakes as not needed on a 140bhp diesel
