    The only way is to check the oil temp under the lap timer (roughly the same) - there is a warning light if there is a problem with the water temp

    it was more to see when it reaches 90 and warmed up so can give it a bit of go. always wait till a cars properly warmed up before any attempt at heavy footedness.

    my brother on the other hand has no respect for his car (a 1.25 Ford Fiesta (he'd kill me for forgetting the .05 LOL) he rapes it from the minute he gets into it. cold or not. and as such its fooked. needless to say he's never driving the S3.

    To be honest it's the oil temp that's more important anyway for putting your
    foot down

    Not entirely sure as I found them on a French forum and i can't read french, but I think they are 19" RS6 C7 wheels which are probably reps but I think these look great!!

    I've been speaking to the guys at Kings Lynn Audi this morning as i read that they've been cutting the discounts down a touch.

    They should be able to offer members some better discounts going forward into 2014 on the S3 Saloon and 3 door but may struggle on the sport back, the reason for this is down to the way Audi have started to allocate S and RS products..

    As soon as i have any details ill let you guys know, but rest assured please give them a call as they will do their best to offer the best overall deal, the ultimate decision comes down to their head of business Andrew Maund so make sure you contact him

    the discounts any dealer offer will be based on the basic pre vat price.

    This doesn't include the road tax, or the delivery..

    Colour such a personal preference, I love the fact the Estoril gives me a black car, blue car and purple car at the exact same moment only yesterday when the Summer sun shone on it.

    Good luck picking your colour, now you have removed one colour you only have another 13 standard colours to pick from.

    Hopefully for the Estoril owners the following won't happen...

    There is a risk that (judging by the forum) the majority of S3's sold are going to be in this exclusive colour, which is exactly what happened to me when i bought the MK4 Golf R32 in that exclusive blue (can't remember the name) and when i came to trade it in the dealer was like "everyone bought this colour so they haven't held their resale value blah blah blah..."

    And they are the target of alot of jokes on the VAG forums...

    I do still maintain however that one should choose a colour by personal preference, and not what others think...

    Absolutely, they will try any excuse in the book..

    Was just pointing out that the rareity of the colour maybe comprimised by the sheer number of buyers..

    To be fair the reason that there were so many of the Deep Blue Pearl R32's out here is ...that was the best colour by far, I also bought one in that colour for that very reason,

    I have also ordered my S3 in Estoril which I realised was always going to be a popular choice.

    Just pic the colour that you like the best and don't worry about resale, people are far too worried about resale, just get what you want within your budget and enjoy it ........life is far too short!!!
