    S3 Buckets

    Hey Nate, do you live at the end of your garden under a toad stool ?? i looked at a S3 with buckets today and there is no way i could get in them ...lol I reckon i would need to lose 8 stone at least to stop getting wedged for good in them

    So how big do you need to be to fit buckets then ?? bigger than your average German i bet....

    If anyone wants a S3, Ibis white with Buckets and S-tronic for 29k there is one in Audi Worthing.

    http://www.caffynsaudi.co.uk/used-ca...-Tronic-265-PS

    they have a TTRS for 45k but it dosnt really look anything special, first one i have seen and very disappointed..:-(

    It's safe to say they're not designed for a larger man! It does depend on bodyshape a lot though - I'm 6'2" and 17 stone and although S3 buckets are tight, I could just about live with them.

    Not only are you too fat, but you're too old for buckets. You should get an SE and go for picnics with Dave R

    I've been to Aberdeen before! Polished Bliss Open Day, was 1 month after I first got the car, wanted to break it in and fancied the drive! Glasgow ain't that far, need to go there in the summer.

    Well, plenty of fun roads up North, plenty of Sheep too. Come to think about it, there are plenty of English too - they own lots of Hotels! Oh, there are midges too :-(
