Looks like they didn't a good job on it!
I still can't decide whether I like estoril blue. In bright light it looks great, but soon as it's in some shade it looks dull and boring.
That's my car lol!!!
Bleeds off what's your thoughts on the led headlights ?
Love them! Think they are awesome! so bright and look fantastic on the car. To be honest tho I never had Xenon lights just straight from halogens to LED's!
There's only one car that should be yellow!
Pfftt! Hotrods had those colours before Lamborghini's
or get your dealer to find a car being built that may have been cancelled and being built or just built - does happen - you might be able to buy it with a decent discount as the dealer that place the order may already have a customer deposit.
This way you may get a new car quicker but you wont have any say in the spec - however you find one with the spec you want anyway - hope that makes sense lol!!
I've had xenons for the past 10 years and wouldn't go back to halogen. Nice the S3 comes as standard with xenons now. I've ordered LED though. First option ticked for me. Some may say I'm obsessed......
im hoping for 1st march - ordered oct 18th and started at week 9, then 12 and back to 6, now built and at status 30 which means its on its way from the factory to the port - could be there now
my dealer said it could possibly arrive in time for 1st march but its gonna be tight
woohoo cant wait!!
ill be the same
first auto ive owned (though ive driven auto hire cars)
agreed I think that was a big mistake by vw to go retro with the interior - it just didn't work for me. if im paying £30+ for a car I don't want something that looks like part of it came from the 1980s, plus my 1984 m2 golf gti had a similar interior to the mk7, well similarish!!
Let's hope it's ready for you as well - shouldn't be tight really only takes 24 hours to ship and even allowing 2 weeks for shipping and transporting from docks to dealer etc that would still leave nearly 10 days give or take to prep
yeh I hope. Ill probably wait till march 1st anyway if its a few days. if it comes next week....hmm...I might still wait but the temptation...lol
You will not regret the LEDs.
They are simply brilliant!
I started a new blog and the first few stories will be detailed review on Audi S3 8V. I dont have a great talent in writing but it may give you some more info on the vehicle.
Anyone here know the brake pad size for the S3? Is it the same as on the 8P? I'm on the hunt for a set of ceramic pads. JDL, Ferodo, Akebono....
I'll definitely wait until 1st March now taken this long another week or so isnt going to hurt and saves them rushing the pdi hopefully
Might have been different if arrived earlier as would be sitting in their yard
Picking mine up tonight. But then I've been waiting since June last year
Arrived!!! Just a couple of days waiting game (papers, plates)
Well... ours arrived at the dealer while we were there on Tuesday.. Looking at all the protection on the roof no worries about bird droppings.
523 hours to go!
Just got an e-mail saying mine has entered the Production Phase and I cant make ammendments to my order (not that i did anyway), starting to feel a lot closer now!
2 stage actions on the ESP switch.
1 brief press disables ASR/TC, and puts it into a more forgiving "sport mode" so you can do some lairy tail out driving, but the safety net of the ESC is still there to catch you if you totally overcook it
A press of 3 seconds or longer will switch off ASR/TC, and the ESC programme completely.
(What is uncertain at the moment, is there is some ambiguity if the system will re-enable ESC if you slam the brakes on whilst the car is out of control (eg: spinning, yaw sensor & steering angle sensor wildly different) - some seem to think it will re-enable ESC in this "emergency", some don't. There isn't enough snow on the ground at the moment to test this out)
Almost looks like Panther Black in that photo Pilot
Looks nice and Black doesn't it Mr IT!
That's great to know thanks for that!
By the way talking about S3 vs Golf R, take a look at this 2014 Audi S3 vs VW Golf R Exhaust Sound Battle
Glad to see Kenny... Proper Phantom Black like our 5/6/7 and 3 s
Picked her up yesterday and the car is a beast!!!
S Performance Pack - LED Lights, Super Sports Seats, Magnetic Ride, B&O Sound
Black Styling pack
First mod planned - window tint
Not the best pics ill take some better ones soon.
Love ittttt cant wipe the grin everytime i drive it.
Looking good mate!!
I must admit it really suits black with black pack and those red callipers really stand out.......nice!
Thanks mate! Loving it so far no complaints...about to take it for a dart now haha
That looks awesome mate! I'll say it again but Black with black pack really goes well together. Liking the hint of performance with the S3 badges and red callipers too. Mean stealth machine!!
Enjoy it buddy!!
I love the look of that, do they not offer factory tints over there?
Tints and Quattro sticker in the rear window, jobs a goodun.
Hey mate yeah they offer to tint the car pre delivery but try to bleed you dry for it...quoted me $590AUD to put darkest legal tint on the car. I said dont worry as I have a mate who does tints if not ill take it to a garage and have it done for the half the price.
Looking forward to some other mods coming though keeping a keen eye on that.
Gorgeous; the best colour combo on an s3 ;-)
These pics nail the discussion over Panther v Phantom.
Phantom so much the better black!
Can't see the pics
No luck Pilot, you need to see these it looks awesome!!
Here's a pic of my S3 with its new reg on.
Sure it will cause some palpitations amongst those with feelings of hatred towards numbers and letters, but I like it.
Like the car too. Washed and dried and tucked away into the garage for this coming week though, going to use my other car as it needs a run.
