    Talking New Car, New Member

    Just thought I'd say hi all & post a pic or two as it seems to be the done thing.

    It's a no option Australian spec & the only black one my new favourite dealer (1250kms from home) could get me unless I waited four months.

    I think this car and I will hit it off .

    Mike

    Thanks for the welcome!

    It would appear there is plenty of support for tuning here but, at least for now, I plan to disappoint.

    I enjoyed the drive in the S3 more than the 135i. The S3 feels good and knowing I can tune it if I want more will keep me happy for a while. Back when I bought a new WRX I enjoyed it for a while before I started to "tweak" it.

    So the plan is the same here, enjoy. If I want more I know where to get it and forums like this will make for invaluable reading. Oh and she might just get out to the track sometime, I raced a motorcycle locally and there's already a temptation to get a feel for her on the track.

    I've attached some interior pics as requested and stolen a signature.




    I'm really keen on the piano black trim!
