    Thanks All.

    I will try and get along to some meets.

    FranA3 - What finishing products do you use on the red. I'm going to pop out to Polished Bliss and see what Clark suggests.

    You're welcome! :)

    Although in all honestly I had to scroll up and down a few times to check I wasn't actually being special instead seeing as no one else has said anything yet. Lol. Nothing worse than being a smart ar$e and arguing the wrong point! ;)

    It is Brilliant although the light doesn't show the difference that well.

    Cheers, live South of Aberdeen but often travel up to Turriff to the folks.

    Cool, glad to see more Aberdeen people! I'm looking forward to getting the new girl near the end of the year so I can head to a meet (if there are any that late in the year) and meeting some of the people on here and seeing some of the cars! :)

    Love it in red mate:wub: - looks very rs3 especially with the BE pack - you could've stated it was a BE rather than just puttin "S3" in the title.. it seems to be confusing people:lmfao:

    I really need to be more careful and state things more clearly. "The DSG in the S3 SB BE in S is FAF!" :think:

    Get some buckets in there and you've got a winner. I haven't seen many red BEs, everyone seems to be going Ibis, but red and black is a sweet combination.

    Cheers. Didn't want Ibis as a lot of the cars at work are white and wanted something different. Thinking about Black Gloss Mirrors and changing the grey bits at the front and back to Gloss Black also. Not sure how it will look though.

    A couple of guys have done the splitters in black on Sprint Blue and Solar Orange cars and it looks great... it'll look even better if you get matching mirrors too.

    I like the colour coded mirrors with the black optics...:wub:

    [​IMG]

    and the buckets in red and black too, but I'm biased:yum:

    Love the red SB!

    I agree that the mirrors look off, especially with the BE pack. I would listen to quattro81 when it comes to the color ;)

    I didn't used to like red at all, but over the years I've acquired a bright red fountain pen, tie, front door and of course my S3! The only issue for is how easily Brilliant Red marks; second only to flat black IMO.

    Nice car, but if its a BE model, think the shiny silver mirror surrounds look stupid!
    Nice grey to match the wheels, or red in body colour would have been imho better.
