    Smile Returning to the S3 Club!

    Hi Guys,

    Really happy to be returning to the S3 club!

    Just put a deposit down on a Dolphin Grey S3 with a decent spec:

    2008 model
    Heated black leather bucket seats
    Sat Nav (RNS-E?)
    Adaptive Xenons
    Bose
    Cruise Control
    Light pack
    Auto Dimming mirror
    Auto Wipers
    Flat bottom steering wheel
    Bluetooth phone with cradle in the Armrest

    I'm sure theres a couple more but cant remember!

    Cant wait to pick it up (next weekend probably) and get to know the 8P model inside out!

    Cheers
    Rich.

    Yeah I've been looking around for a few months now.

    I found some for around 18.5K but not with Buckets and Sat Nav.

    I'm really exited about picking it up! I've been driving diesels for the last few years, so this will make a nice change!

    I see you have a ? beside your RNS-E

    Do you know which one you have as there are two variations of Audi Satnav - the MMI and RNS-E

    The MMI is just a basic, red faced satnav - I have it installed as standard in my S3 but I bought and second hand RNS-E for it instead - much, much better IMO!!

    I think it must be the better one.. I'm not sure...

    It had a blue screen, don't know if that helps?

    RNS-E - DVD SAT NAV. Color screen.
    BASIC SAT NAV - CD ONLY. No Graphicaly gui. Also the gap is slightly wider between the buttons at the bottom and the screen

    See pic - bottom left RNS-E; bottom right CD SAT NAV.

    Nice choice! Obviously the best colour, and when you get bored of the seats you can trade them for mine and a pack of football stickers!

    Well done and great choice

    You will love the buckets trust me

    The leather is quite thin and does wear quite quickly though so when getting in and out of the seats do your best to avoid rubbing against the side bolsters.
