    Today's the day!

    Well this day seems to have taken an age to arrive, I have had to wait 11 wweks for the car to arrive but late last week my new S3 Sportback finally landed at an Audi garage near me as they say. I am really looking forward to the change having had BMW's for the last 8 years and whilst on paper it should not be as quick as my 335 in reality I expect it to be a lot closer call.

    Spec as follows.

    Ibis White
    Black Headlining
    Bucket Seats
    Folding Mirrors
    Panoramic Sunroof
    Parking Sensors Front & Rear
    Privacy Glass
    Tyre Pressure Monitors
    Piano Black Trims
    Black Headlining
    Interior Light Pack
    Black Styling Pack
    Bose
    High Beam Assist
    DVD Navigation
    Bluetooth Phone Prep - Low
    AMI
    Light and Rain Sensor Pack
    Cruise Control

    I have changed the standard wheels to 19" Bi-colour Sportec's so they should be on the car when I collect it later today, that way I don't have to discuss them with the wife!

    I will post some pictures up later tonight.

    Suspension installed

    I made the trek down to APS today, 138 miles down the M1 in the record time of 3hrs 15mins!

    They installed the Bilstein PSS10 kit and the H & R arb's. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with both before and during the day, they dropped straight onto the car and had me on my way home for 1pm.

    Initial thoughts are the car now stands better than it did on the standard suspension, I have not gone too low at the minute as I don't want problems with bottoming out on the ring. Ride quality is greatly improved over standard it no longer crashes into holes in the road, this could be because the setting currently are 5F 4R.

    The arb's have made a big difference to the turn in of the car, this was one of my original issues as I felt the rear end needed to be a little more fluid and the front end needed to turn in sharper.

    A couple of quick photos, I will do some better ones when the car is clean.

    Lovely car, lovely seats, lovely colour, the black centres let the wheels down man, I'm afraid.

    I just fancied a change from the all black or all silver look to be honest.

    Yeh I understand that, but anthracite centres work better with diamond cut rims, the black is too harsh a contrast anyway, what do I know

    Looks great mate but please take the 'Ring sticker off. Unless a car has been on the track it doesn't deserve the sticker

    The car has done around 15 laps of the ring earlier this month, I actually have a season ticket and a proper car for the track though, the S3 is just a daily driver and a means of getting to the ring as the CSL lives in Germany during the summer.

    No problems, usually the stickers without nurburgring written at the side of them belong to the more serious people
