Bought an S3 yesterday pick it up late next week. Its a 1999 in Ivory black (think) with sliver interior and 55k on the clock.
My first impressions, the leather seems to have worn heavily on the all the cars with silver leather i've looked at?? Common problem i guess.
The ride is best described as very nobbily which was surprising and the gear lever is very remote.
Positives, the engine is very torquey even at fairly low rpm's and the car feels very sure footed and love the way it pulls away without noticable weight transfer you get with a front wheel drive. Now the questions:-
Whats the difference between brilliant black and Ivory black?
Are chrome dial rings available?
Can i swop the rear right lenses for late spec or do i need the bulb carriers too?
So got a budget of about £1k to spend on improving the car, how would you spend it? Think chip and ARB's maybe squeeze a set of coilover under it?
thanks in advance
