    sold my car this thing this morning so went and go look at a 8p2 s3 today as i put a deposit down on it the other day, soon as i seen i absolutly loved it, so 45 mins later i drove away init and didnt stop smiling all 170 miles home :), the power is unbelieveable, pulls so nice compared to my old 2.0T, here is the spec of my s3
    2008 57 dolphin grey, 35K, buckets( these are a must), bose, auto lights/wipers, interior light pack, power sun roof, ipod dock, phone prep, heat seats, rear sensors, bluetooth, aux in, optics grill thats all i can think of at the minute.
    i will get pictures up of it tomorrow its mint condition, so very happy.

    already have few mods i wanna do to it in time these include,
    mkII RNS-E
    Revo remap stage 1
    autotech fuel pump internals
    my11 rears

    cant wait to see how it goes with remap, leaving stock for now till i get used to the power :).

    Thanks mate, I wasn't so sure about the colour from the photos but in the flesh it looks so much better, that Is a shame bud they feel and look so good. Don't worry will be starting a thread for my new mods, won't be for a while now tho cos am little low on funds after buying the car lol.

    Having come from a dolphin S3 I'm torn about the black grille, may be that I'm so used to silver, but I do love the buckets!

    That is such a nice car, did you notice a difference between your remapped 2.0t and the standard s3?

    Yes I had my11's on my last a3 and agree they are so much nicer, will go with my grill and thanks bud, yes I can tell the difference between 2.0T remapped And s3, not by hell of a lot as the 2.0T was at stage 2 and was running just over 250, but was constantly on power cos of the dsg, s3 pulls a lot harder and quicker as you would expect, can't wait to get it remapped :)

    Looking good mate, if the 8P2 S3 came with DSG I'd be bang on one!


    A little heads up..... if those photos are taken on your drive then I'd blank out the name of that pub in the background, as it won't take a genius to work out where your car is kept overnight. :ninja:
