    Talking Picked up my new car today

    Hi Every one, hope your all good.


    Some of you may know i was looking for a new car, decided i wanted a 2.0 tdi (140) had to be s-line couldnt find any which were at a decent price or lowish miles. All were either 2007 with high miles 35,000+ or 2006 with 40,000+ and they wanted 13,995 then found a ibis white one audi were selling Watford audi but decided not to go for that. Anyway after about 4 let downs etc etc. I gave up and thought just wait for a bit and then get one. As i really wanted a 2.0T FSI

    Sunday decided to take hmm the girl friend shall i say car shopping as she seen a nice golf gt she likes. Got there and a nice 2.0 tfsi s-line caught my eye.

    Went back today and picked her up. Audi a3 2.0T FSI S-line (200bhp) Silver (not sure what kinda silver) 12,995 21,450 miles, s-tronic, one owner from new, on a late 2006 plate, still under audi warranty. The new car has my alloys and facelift back lights on. Will post photos when i get home.

    Plans for the car my black optic grill going on tomorrow.
    Remap at some stage but not in any rush as the car can move at the moment and doubt i will get bored any time soon. Photo be uploaded after i finish work. One question who are the top three companys for remaping? Heard good things about revo and amd essex

    Hopefully tomorrow my optic grill should be on. Only thing is that its s3 (i know its abit shorter then the s-line) reckon be any other problems? Have you had a look for that white a3 yet?

    Question S-Line

    Is it me or does this S-line look like the wheel arches are different compared to the standard sport model ? I know the back and front bumper is different. But is the any other changes on the S-line Body ? Can Any one answer this?
