Looks awesome Aran, Hopefully I'll see it the flesh sometime in the furutre
Thank you, it's down in London at the moment, but I'm sure I'll be driving it up within the next month
There's certainly going to be a good selection of S3s in Aberdeen come the spring! Wonder how many combos will be covered?!
Seems to be a very popular place for S3s; my 8P S3 ended up there for sale.
I've remapped about 20 S3's in the Aberdeen area. Very popular car up that neck of the woods.
Cars lookin awesome mate!! Good pics.
How was the drive down to London?
Should be suitably run in now tho!
J6YAK I saw you on George St today , nice TT. I was picking up a couple of pairs of new skis for our semester in e alps coming up. You parked outside of Nevisport. I was going to say hi but it seemed a bit stalkerish.....!
Cheers, yeah was an amazing drive and covered ground much quicker than when I drove up in my 1.4 A3 just 30 miles short of 1k so will probably hit that milestone tomorrow, I haven't seen an 8v S3 down here so far, yet saw a couple running about up there! certainly more popular up north IMO.
I've seen mine plus three in Aberdeen and the shire in the last 4 weeks.
Probably some of the guys on here.
Cheers Mr Lecht, you should have just said hi, always good to put a face to a name! Next time maybe?
When are you heading off to the alps?
Looks like they are going to be very popular here in Aberdeen, as are most other Audi's really and for good reason!!
I had an amazing surprise yesterday. I ordered an S3 SB in September and was told that delivery was not going to happen before mid February next year. Got a call from the dealer saying that not only was the car in the country (I'm in Australia) but also that the car was ready to be picked up!
This is our first Audi and the car delivery process was great. The staff spent a couple of helpful hours going over the features of the car and helping us set it up to our liking. We even did a few park assist parks to show us how it worked.
So far, first impressions are that the car is nothing short of brilliant. All the features seem really intuitive and she drives great. Interestingly, our dealer said that the engine had already been run in and that there was no need to drive conservatively for the first little while.
Here are a couple of photos for your viewing pleasure. The estoril looks amazing in the sunshine. The last photo is the boxed wine set that my dealer handed over during delivery - bonus!
The rear lights look the mutts! Are the rear lights on the 3DR/SB LED?
Lovely picks of a real Black S3. Seats look great too.
Holding the camera above my head in wide angle (Canon 24-105). It's looks higher on the picture than I was standing.
Those look great. Do you have a link from the French forum? Found it.
They are 19":

Yeh that's where I found the pics, some good ones on there, I've been trying to source these wheels in uk but not found anywhere yet?
Ehmm, check my post above.
Been told my car is on the boat now towards the UK. I think it's on SCHELDE HIGHWAY which is literally just entering Grimsby as I type this. Woohoo. Not long now!
Yes we'll done!! I already posted a link to the forum soon after my original post with the pics !!
But not been able to find a UK company to supply as yet?
Ours has already landed and is awaiting delivery to Kings Lynn. They have promised to turn it around in 48 business hours so it may well be picked up at the weekend or early next week
the wife was saying today, I hope he lets us have a look at it when he gets it! I said, I think you'd be too busy driving it!
Sweet. I'm looking forward to what you come up with re tuning as I'd like to go for at least stg1
What build week was your car? And did it come into Grimsby or Sheerness?

Found these OZ wheels (MSW):
Oz Racing - MSW - AVANTGARDE - MSW 26
Looking at the photos where the boot is shown, I don't see anyone with the storage net in their S3 SB. I got one - did anyone else?
I'll be taking the one out of my A4 Avant when I drop it off....
2 months today!!
I received one too, i use it to strap down a shoe box containing useful tools and whatnot .
I got one, its advertised in the brochure so its not something that should be left out. Mine was neatly stored in the left hand side behind the net in the area where the 12v boot charger is located.
Yeah no problem I'll pop over and let you have a look at it
We are testing the new DTUK / Shark Performance tuning box so will give good honest feedback on that. ECU can't be mapped as of yet.
Not sure yet mate. I found some H&R springs and spacers eliminated a lot of the understeer in my 8P so I'll report back on what effect those have. It may be that I don't find it understeers too badly standard anyway. In any case I will be looking into this when I return to work tomorrow.
Plans are for this year to put the tuning box on, springs, spacers and then see what the car is like after its trips to Forge Motorsport and Cobra Sport. The only issue we have is the effect having all the mods on without a proper map but I'm hoping the guys at Shark are going to crack the ECU before long.
2 questions, has anyone seen a silver s3 and how about a sprint blue s3
Scratch that found pics
Yeah just like the aluminium footrest and no S3 on the key which are
both advertised in the brochure
I recall someone mentioning that the footrest was going to be introduced on RHD vehicles for those taking delivery of 14 plate S3's, anyone know if this is happening?
