    Hi all,
    I have got round to taking some shots with a camera, not the best camera. I will do some better shots at some point.
    I can honestly say and seriously think the facelift chain driven engine seems alot more responsive and the turbo is ALOT louder than m orange one and that was a 57 plate. It whistles and pops this one alot more.

    Like it mate, where did you get the wing mirrors from with the indicators in?

    Would they fit a 55reg a3 s line?

    The mirrors come on the facelift A3's

    Dave looking nice, always have been a fan of your colourful cars, hate boring same old whites & blacks, the exclusive stitching is nice & on the arms of the doorcards aswell, nice touch huh, now time for modding, lol.

    They were standard on the facelift, different mirror design. Not too shure if the stem is the same as the pre facelift to retrofit. I'm sure it can be done, watch this space.

    Thanks, the car really does look alot better in person. Its hard to capture yellow as a colour really.

    The stitching stands out more inside also in real life.

    Nice one mate, tidy.

    Wish I could afford a new S3 as often as you can, you make me feel like an under-achiever!!!!

    Did you get a good trade in on the Solar S3? I got a pitiful trade in offer when I had the chance of a cheap S5 in January.

    I sold private for 25500..... Quite good really. I wouldn;t have sold for any lower and really only swapped because of facelift

    Didn't have that much to put too really

    Thanks again. Its not to everyones taste, but I think 99% of people like it as I had alot of pictures taken at Oulton Park the other day.

    I think tinted windows are a must with a yellow car though.

    It makes the car exclusive really, it feels special inside and knowing it went to a different part of the factory to have the normal stuff taken out.
