    The S3 is here!

    After 3 months waiting, it's finally here! Picked up the S3 today and although I was inconsolable for all of 5 minutes for handing back my lovely A3......I have a big grin on my face now!

    It hasn't stopped raining all day so apologies for the bad pics! Its being detailed in 3 weeks so will post up some better pics then!

    With the no-smoking pack do you not get a place to plug in your phone charger or accessory?

    Just not going to Red line it, other than that not push it too hard for the first 300 miles. When do they start to loosen up?

    Nice car and choice of bits! Buckets do look good aswell, next time ey.

    Like the attitude to running it in, I say get the 300 miles on sharpish, then drive it like it should.

    Nice Scooby too!

    Yes, absolutely......of course. And lets face it....he is more likely to get pulled over by the police for driving (what could be considered) a "chav car" than me in my respectible S3.

    With regards to running in i just mine from the off (but didn't bounce it off the rev limiter), doesn't seem to have done it any harm.

    They all look like that out front.
    you should have seen it when they first put it down, it was shocking.
    Anyway much more fun playing with the cars than the garden.
