    Finally found a nice one! (sprint blue s3)

    well after a few months of searching and looking at some rough and untidy examples i finally found a nice example i was happy with,

    my first choice was blue but after struggling to find any nice ones for sale i decided i would also be happy with a white one,

    saw this one on piston heads and thought it would be worth an email, initially wasnt planning on looking as it was a good distance away, but one weekend i was halfway there riding the mtb's so we thought we'll never be as close again so went for a look and glad we did,

    after seeing it for sale i wasnt too keen on the interior but thought i could easily swap for recaros (which was on my first list for what i wanted) but after actually seeing the seats they are actually quite nice and different,

    liking the car at the moment only picked it up on saturday, still working out how to use everything, its not fast (well compared to my last car) but i didnt buy it for that, buy saying that its no slouch but that side of thing can soon be sorted if need be, anyway a couple of pics, will get some better one once i get time to wash it and weathers a bit better,


    Enjoy, sorry about quality of the pics

    When you say any technology? what kind of things do you exactly mean?

    Any technology that was available for your chassis, but wasnt on your car, generally I can retrofit it all, albeit engine/quattro doesnt count, although maybe possible lol.

    Yeah do like the black edition pack, so maybe something I'll look into at some point, as for technology I think it's got pretty much most of it, will have to have a search and see what else I can have, fancied comin home lights but seen as it lives in the garage not much need and believe its only available with auto lights,
    Thanks

    Gogz s3, is that a black edition front grill and fogs? any pics from front, i quite like the black grill but wasnt sure if i need to ditch the chrome mirrors if having black grills etc?

    PaulAR, looks a nice clean and tidy example, how come you swapped to a white one? just fancied a change of colour and newer model?

    grr666, yes i agree it is nice and bright in the cab, especially at night when you get in and out think someonoes changed my interior bulbs, there like 500watt flood lights, :lol:

    Lovely car, same as my old one.

    I can tell you from experience that they respond very well to being modified. Mine was stage 3, a completely different animal altogether to the the standard S3

    Had to sell to make way for a diesel for a bit but when I started working local again and didnt need the economy, got back into an S3.
    I think Ibis looks great against the BE dark grill etc. especially the anthracite Rotors, and as I had the Sprint blue S3 over 3 year I fancied a change.

    Over the whole 8P S3 life cycle I reckon Sprint is probably the best colour on balance.
    IMO it set the S3 apart as it was generally an `S` colour.

    Cue gratuitous pic postage of one of these common white ones......

    Was a cracker, pampered car with some nice sensible mods.
    It went to a guy in Scotland, Glasgow area iirc, I look out for it in here but its not turned up yet. Not that many on CHs so its fairly distinctive.
    Shame you ended up stuck with a pesky RS4, you must be gutted.........

    That's a really nice example. In fact both your S3's are (old and current). I'd really like the Sportback in white, but could be considering one in black. Not the same contrast, but it might have more options.

    Thanks, your comment isnt entirely correct, in the fact i wont be dissapointed, i initially was disapointed, as was expecting some sort of female nudity to lighten up my evening, but thanks for your ebay link and good luck with your sale of your car, unfortunatley my thread is titled finnally found a nice one, this suggests i have bought a car and the pictures also back up the words,

    hope you manage to sell the car,

    Thanks Phil
