    As above seen a few in the flesh and while the exterior is great, the interior looks like an old escort? any thoughts, peeps

    If the 8P interior looks like it's out of an old escort then your 8L must look like it's out of a Model T :laugh:

    The 8L s3 interior is quite modern and cool for its time, IMO looking at the 8p s3s its like going back in time,

    Heated seats as standard, I have a feeling that all S3 8P3s have the FBMFSW as standard too? Could be wrong with that though..

    haha well it was looking at being some one off, no where else in the world engine components, done through my tuner, but my car needs are possibly changing, so not sure if its worth investing the money in it, if if the money should be put into the next project
