    Don't know to be honest, it will be officially ordered on Tuesday so hopefully?! I've been told to wait 10-12 weeks so should be up to date you would hope! What's changed?

    No details on any facelift dates have been released yet, and from what Ive heard the S3 will be the last to get it - if it happens, anyway

    Visually on the outside the A3 will be as the new cabriolet. So only minor cosmetic changes: You'll now get LED running lights, s-line badge is moved to the front wings and repeaters are located on the wing mirrors as the Golf. The interior will remain unchanged and the car will technically stay identical unless you're having a diesel...The new range of engines will aparently be far superior.

    @ L60N - looks lovely, get some spacers on the rear for a bit of stance and it will look great

    Didn't know you were on here! Was going to pm you through edition 38 at the weekend but it's been down for ages. Went for the 140 on your advice, slightly cheaper on co2 tax as well - will be in touch as soon as it lands for a remap

    actually yeah, the black optics does look nice on that...

    I didnt like it for my S3, as prefered the shine rather than the sneek look the black gives.

    Im now putting it down to the chrome look wing mirrors making the difference?

    I like the stealth look, not sure I'll call it 'the stormtrooper' when it arrives but each to their own!

    The lower part of the S3 bumper is what makes them looks so nice, really shapes the intakes nicely

    Don't think you can do it directly from your computer (might be able to copy & paste?!) but you need to go to something like photobucket.com, upload them from your comp to there, then you get various 'tags' for using in emails, websites etc. I think you copy the 'direct link' address and paste it into the box that opens up when you press the yellow square with a mountain in it in the quick reply thing

    Sorry if that's not very clear!

    The wheels are going to be pinstriped in body colour..

    I did have a load more pics that I had done but my computer hd gave up so I have lost them all!! very annoying!
