    Hi everyone

    Picking up my 2001 AMK S3 this Thursday after owning an A4 2.6SE Avant for 7 years.

    Some call it a midlife crisis, I just call it 'why the hell not!!'...

    I have modded my A4 with SPAX RSX suspension, Goodridge brake hoses, 17" RS4 repros and In-Pro facelift style headlamps/indicators. I love my A4 but feel its time to move on so I am selling it (obvious plug alert!) and getting an S3.

    The S3 is silver with silver alcantara interior (which needs a little clean tbh) and drives like a dream. Already got my performance upgrades mapped out and have her booked in for a remap in November.

    I have been wading through this forum for about a week now so thought I had better say hello...

    I look forward to continuing my love of Audi's with my S3 and enjoying the wealth of info produced by this forum...

    All the best

    Thanks guys... I will sort some pics of both my cars over the next couple of days. I pick her up Thursday morning (or maybe tomorrow if I can swing it) and have a couple of days off to really make her shine.

    Looks like you've got yourself a nice car there mate.....i wish they'd flared the arches on the 8P....the L stands out from the crowd a bit more.

    Enjoy!

    No idea tbh, thats how the car came when I picked it up yesterday but I think I think I will try and find out as it does a good job :)

    What do you use to clean your alcantara? mines a little dirty

    does your steering wheel has a letter T there instead of the S3
