    New member of the 8p gang!

    As some of you will know, I've been on about selling the S3 as I need a diesel as I commute a long distance for work.

    Got a good deal from the dealer so part exchanged it for a new A3 TDi Sport (not brand new, just new shape)

    Should be picking it up next Friday..

    I'll really miss the S3 but needs must and all that...

    Already started thinking of what mods I can do and will probably be adding a rear roof spoiler, RS6 Alloys and phatnoise!

    Really looking forward to Friday now...

    Congrats Dicky, I'm sure you'll love it, I love mine [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Performance wise theres always Revo, still get decent fuel economy and once up and running it will be about as quick as your S3, well not top end.

    Re: New member of the 8p gang!

    Thanks mate... Looking forward to having a go of one that has been tweaked but I'm a little worried about the clutch with all that torque going through it.

    I've got a couple of pics which I'll post up in a bit.

    Cheers
    Rich.

    Great motor! I've always liked silver on the 8P: it brings out its shapes nicely.

    Iron cross wheels?

    I thought they were the ugly love child of a set of the old competition wheels and the Avus wheels!

    hopefully it will be today, but currently waiting for the cherish transfer so it may delay it.

    Fingers crossed!
