    Finally picked up the S3 sportback and I have got to say the performance is outstanding and the looks are stunning.

    You've all seen the S3s before so only a few pics. Wind deflectors already fitted and I got audi to do the privacy glass as well before I picked the car up.

    plans are Milltek large bore exhaust and remap. Then I'll see what happens.
    Graeme at GNJ is only ten minutes away from me so I'm sure I will the there quite a bit. :)

    Does look stunning mate, even matches the garage door lol.

    I had a set of wind deflectors on mine and they look pretty good, only problem is the rear ones were a bit sh*te and one side fell off whilst on the M1 so only got the fronts on now but they look OK.

    Love the buckets as well and I think the privacy glass makes the car stand out more.

    I too have purchased an S3 less than a month ago.....any issues with yours at all or before you bought it? I have a slight hiss behind the dash that I think is the brake servo

    Good job I got a warranty ;)

    Lovely colour - that's what colour my S4 was! Definitely stands out from the crowd. I'm sure we'd all be very interested in knowing how comfy the seats are after sitting in them for a while...

    The seats are very comfy... Coming from a corsa VXR I am used to recaro buckets anyway.

    The s3 seats hug you more and I have found that if I have my wallet in my back pocket it does start to hurt my ass... Its a problem easily solved though... :)

    Glad to hear they're comfy. I find the standard seats in my S3 just as comfy as the Recaro seats in my previous S4. I do miss the electric lumber support though.

    Which other extras have you got??
