    Talking Finally picked up my S3

    After a long wait for the right car and an absolute perfect storm of problems yesterday when I was supposed to pick it up (Nationwide's debit card system breaking for 5 hours leaving me with no way to pay for the car and driving home in my old part ex to come back today).

    Drive home was fantastic, so comfortable having driven 300 miles in wasted journeys due to the debit card cock up, the 100 home were amazing, S3 Black edition, S-Tronic, RNSE etc.

    The only bad thing was the amount of fuel used on the way home but it was for a good cause!

    It has now removed mate (you missed that part), he edited immediately, besides why do you think I would use hashes...

    It wouldn't be that difficult for thieves to target a 20k car within that area! They are always around!

    Ever wondered why there is always a full/complete set of back-end or front-end of S3s on eBay... all the time!

    I would hide the reg number as well, it would only cost 20 quid to track the owners details (Address, Name etc.)... REMOVE IT ASAP

    Because probably the majority of the time, cars are involved in either front end or rear end shunts and the cars have been written off?

    Yeah I just upload them to some of my own webspace and when I insert them I use the "from URL" option and untick "Retrieve remote file and reference locally". Stops the forums pulling a copy and resizing it.

    Other than that, a decent camera helps think your issue is mostly the hosting though.
