    Hi all

    I’m writing from the car show Fifth Gear which is now on Discovery Channel.

    We are filming a used car buying guide and are looking to feature the Audi S3 (8L) as a must have hot hatch.

    We are looking for a great condition and standard as possible Audi S3 for a days filming with Jason Plato in Coventry, West Midlands.

    Filming is taking place on Thursday 22nd August 2013 and usually runs from 8am-8pm.

    The car will be driven by Jason and only driven on the roads – there will be no track driving racing or testing – and we will give your car every respect!

    We can cover travel expense, food and accommodation if needed.

    If anyone is interested please e-mail me and also include your town or county simon.smith@northonetv.com

    Many Thanks

    Simon

    'As standard as possible'

    So I reckon Paul could still get away with his BT S3 as it's pretty OEM looking :)

    i've had a think and cant think of anyones car that fits the bill.
    i first thought of the doctors, but then i realise he's got a stage 1 map on that now. Otherwise his car is immaculate and relatively stock.
    If only modded were allowed, Tufftys would get the vote.

    Thats a shame as you would have got my vote.

    I have actually emailed the OP asking for some more info about what they are looking for and after describing my car and sending a few pics mine would be allowed. Only visual mods =sensibly lowered on coil overs, facelift rear lights, OEM BBS TT alloys

    I just know there are better examples of S3s out there and on here that they could use as I expect it will be pitted against other similar cars, eg LCR so want to get the best car for them to use...my 188k example probably isn't the one :( but if they are 100% stuck ill give them a hand so the feature can be filmed.

    Haha....true but by the sounds of things they want an S3 for rolling shots and not for track abuse and against a stop watch/against other cars.

    My S3 isn't that low and has OEM wheels (albeit from a TT lol) and only the purists would know I've upgraded the rear clusters. Under the bonnet though. Hmmmmmm I'd have to dust off the engine covers to hide a few things....could be a free shout out for the B5 tip at least! Haha

    I vote for Nilzy, his is standard with a dodgy remap, which is probably running standard power now anyways? Just need to refit his original airbox for a day.
