    This is what I thought, always makes you wonder why if it was such a good deal, that no one else snapped it up?

    The colour most likely off putting for most people. But thats one of my favourite colours and love i on the facelift S3. If your interested get some one to check it out with vagcom, looks very tidy and clean

    Like it.
    Also like the seats, dark jeans would turn them blue though. (Khaki Chinos required.)

    ...they don't. ;)

    But I know you will try any excuse to crack out the chinos, Hilfiger shirt and jumper tied around the neck. :p

    BOT:

    I think the poverty spec of the car won't help. I am sure it has been mentioned recently...you pay ~£1k for the paint and only spec Ipod adapter (which is **** anyway) - bizarre.

    Ha Ha!
    Class.

    Busted on the Chinos!
    `Sports casual` I will have you know!

    What about the Gallini jumper, Pod Shoes, luminous socks, and Wet Wet Wet on the Walkman.?

    Anyhoo, I much prefer the two tone seats, lifts the cabin 100%. The bit I would change most about the interior.

    Cheers
    Paul

    I'll confirm that Paul. Leather cleaner comes out at mine once a month to scrub the colouring out of the drivers seat!

    Well they haven't mentioned the PDC as an optional extra, or the black pack, even though I actually think the standard chrome would have looked better on that colour.

    Recently purchased jeans that turned my hands blue so can imagine.

    But maybe its an excuse for retro-chique and break out the Chinos?:laugh:

    Standard attire for "dress down Friday" in my office, although I can't afford real Chinos, Maine Clothing by Debenhams do some nice chino style trousers, with turn-ups ;)

    I personally like that, love the colour and two tone leather. I think it's unique, wont get many out there like it.
