    Spotted my first S3 in the flesh this week at the gym. Phantom Black SB. Was just parking up and thinking I'd have a sneaky peek through the window (in passing), but the owner came out and got in so I thought it best not to

    Will have to get there earlier next time as I could tell from the headrests it had SSS, which I haven't actually seen yet. Hopefully he won't come out to find me with my nose pressed up against the window

    Cheers.

    They are..even the less common colours. I've seen two other shiraz red A3s in my neck of the woods. However both were either SE or sport (so I'm still feeling exclusive there)

    SPOTTERS THREAD FOR 8V CHASSIS

    So walking back home in the rain and I hear a familiar sound... Black Audi s3.... Considering it's the first I've seen since I got mine almost 2 weeks ago, I had to take a glance at the plate and feel for my keys to make sure it wasn't mine lol.

    Plate started AE63, spotted around Euston road/Camden (London)

    Must admit its louder than I thought from outside... Not that I get to hear it from outside :D lucky pedestrians

    The grey S3 sportback on the A120 heading east, this Saturday morning, reg number actually began with "S3_____" driving at ridiculous speed... I was doing just under 80 in the firms A4 allroad and you went past me like I wasn't even there. 140mph? More? I think so. Essex Police patrol that road with an unmarked 3 series and an unmarked motor bike - I just hope you get caught and lose your licence before someone gets killed. Utter Dickhead.

    This wasn't me and I do think it's way too fast to be driving on public roads, however I am curious to how it sounded at 140 on full coal??

    Not been behind one as 12 months of looking and still not seen one on the road. Smile on some people's faces behind me suggests it can be heard when peddle pressed tho'!

    It's one of two I have seen in 7 months of actively looking! The other was a Misano red SB in a lay-by.

    It's quite loud and makes a nice growl when up shifting from behind. Only issue for me when I drive mine is that already had two arse holes get right up behind me trying to race. Corsa VXR and A5 Sportback TDI. Really? Probably the most satisfying thing about the S3 is foot down and just pull away! No need to get involved!
