    Quick question.. Is an s line model better or is the Quattro?

    Is a 2.0 170 a3 quattro for £20K expensive 32k on the clock

    S-line is the highest spec of the a3, Quattro is four-wheel drive not a model type. What year is that for?

    As above, quattro isn't a trim level. £20k sounds a lot though, you can get a facelift S3 for that money, with the same miles.

    The quattro was 2010 full spec led&xenon with s line :S BE as well - I thought it was expensive.. I have been telling my dad s3 for a while now.. I turn 21 in a few months and he's looking to buy me a 2.0L now.. But ATM I have a standard a3 1.6 and I'm paying almost £2500 on insurance and my dad is saying I won't be able to get you insured on an s3 because of the turbocharged engine

    2009 1.9 TDIe Sport 31k - Fitted Fiscon Bluetooth. Have an RNSE LED sitting ready to be fitted, still need to buy AMI and Audi Bluetooth for this though! ;)

    It might be going back to Audi though, I have an ongoing problem with grinding brakes, been in so many times for the same issue I've lost count :(

  11. Here'e mine. Just a standard 'cooking variety' A3 Sport. Still making my mind up about the wheels. I'll stick with 17"s (ride is SO much better than 18"s) but looking for alternatives.

    Hello folks! Here's a couple of pictures of my S3. Please excuse the poor quality, they were taken off my iPhone earlier today.

    Will take a few more pictures once the car has had a proper polish! Thanks.

    Multi storey car-parks and lowered cars don't go well together.

    Lots of win here on this page!

    Here's my gorgeous ebony 8P1. I'll be claiming my overpaid tax back from the HMRC and treat her to a genuine S-Line spoiler.

    Hey guys, first post here for me.

    Here is my 06 plate A3 2.0TDI Sport, bought it on 24th Feb and loving it - totally different driving experience to my previous car, a 1985 Land Rover Defender 90!

    Anyway here is a picture and some little vids of it:

    Cheers,

    Loving that look. The wheels really suit that colour. How about lamin-x on the side repeaters? How does it look from the front?

    Thanks :) I tried some tint film on them but it was cheap stuff and looked grey. Don't fancy paying the price for lamin x just for indicators..
    Here's the front

    The car is lowered around 4.5cm roundabout.

    I'm running the same hight all year. It's adjustable but i have a Cupra-lip that takes away most of the snow. No problem. ;)
    Summer-wheels are 19" yes.

    The Dynavin D95 has almost everything but not DAB.
    Soon i will test the new D99 w/Android (i'm selling these units in Norway) and will post more pictures when the test is done.
    The Android has still a couple of "bugs" but i hope there will come an update for the software soon.
    But i'm very satisfied with the D95 for now. Looks like it was original for my car.

    Some more pics:
