    Very nice! Congratts! Would be interesting to know how many S3 owners we are right now, seems like there are a new one every week.

    Chins,

    Your car looks excellent. Looks really good in Silver actually...now I've started thinking if I've ordered the right colour or not, again! With my Silver 8L S3 I always thought, "should have got black or dolphin grey" now I'm thinking "should have got silver or dolphin grey" for my 8P, and its not even arrived yet! I can't win.

    The arches do look more pronounced on the silver car. Looks good.

    They're standard. Audi's system is usually to keep the bodywork untouched for the "S" cars but modify it for the "RS" ones.

    Thanks for the nice comments. I actually think it looks nicer in real life. I wont make the next David Bailey.

    Best thing about the steering wheel is that they only charged me for the std multi function steering wheel, not the flat bottomed one.

    I'm happy with the seats as well. Have to be honest and say that the std black pimpled leather didnt work for me and my last 3 cars that have been from VAG - R32, MKVGTI and MK2 TT have all suffered with creased leather where my fat arse sits. This gets round it.

    Well I think the wheels look great. With the exception of a set of 19" RS4's, I think they are the best OEM ones you can have.

    Very nice looking motor, I like the flat bottomed wheel.

    So is that a plain black plastic dead-pedal I see even in the S3 ?

    Kewl. And I like the wheels... all 5 of them. Mentioning no names but unlike some you won't have to spend your life cleaning the alloys!

    What is the steering wheel like to use?
