    I'd do anything to trade mine in for that! If petrol ever gets too much, i'll happily swap my 2.0TDI for that! lol.

    Am I right in saying that the new SB's have LED rear lights like the A6? Spotted it from afar at work today but wasn't sure if it was modded or not as I haven't read anyone stating such a thing.

    Thanks for all your comments guys! I'm chuffed to bits!

    Still cant get over the power! I know moving from a 2.0FSI would be a big jump but nothing could prepare me for this!

    The drive is amazing, smooth and controlled, but firm when you need it to be. Loving the noise of that turbo spinning up!

    I dont think the rear lights are LED's, trust me i wish they were! Tomorrow i am hoping to be changing the interior bulbs for LED's, weather permiting. I will be putting before and after shots!

    I think im off to bed now, hoping to cover some serious miles tomorrow, get this baby run in!

    Hey
    Nice motor. Looking soon @ either white or Suzuka Grey in S3 Form.

    I see you have black opk's pack. Does this include the wheels or is this a extra?

    The black wheels were a special extra + extra work had to be done to the plastic hubs to ensure the chrome didnt get painted over.

    :hubbahubba:Nice looking car pal.... very similar to what we did but we didn't have the balls to go with black wheels, really impressed by them though. Titan grey i think they is our colour. Mirrors look great too. Just love the sportback we wouldn't have had an s3 if they didn't release the sportback. What colour interior did you go for?
    here's a couple of ours for comparison.

    That looks minted. I have to say that the new S3 wheels are REALLY growing on me.

    Looks great mate. Enjoy running it in!

    Out of interest, how long do you have to run it in for (miles?)

    Just out of curiousity, where abouts in UK are you from? I saw a Ibis White S3 SB yesterday in Redhill with Open sky and black S3 alloys just like yours, the black on white effect is definately a head turner.

    Hah, saw it parked outside Frankie and Benny's. Really caught my attention as I never seen another facelift apart from my own.

    That's a smart looking car you've got there Toby. You've added some real nice "personal" touches that'll make it stand out from the crowd. I'm really liking the facelift models now, especially the SB S3, It's a definite contender for my next car now when the time comes.
