    Picked it up Tuesday night - fully loaded with all the options bar Sat Nav and Ambient Lighting (I think)

    Currently filthy, getting hit with the machine polisher at the weekend if its not raining.

    Here are some bad pics..

    Wasn't sure how the colour was going to do down, pleased with the response !

    Its strange, although basically the same car, it drives different to my pre-facelift, nice having the CD changer in the dash now aswell.

    There should hopefully be a good updating of pictures over the next few weeks as I get cracking on it. I think it will look great waxed up.

    Very nice, in what way does it drive different, I think it could be down to the age and mileage difference that it feels different? i.e. if i was to replace all my shocks and bushes with brand new standard items im pretty sure it would feel differnet (well i'd hope it would)

    Have you got the auto dip rear view mirror, anr 3rd rear head rest?

    Looks very nice, the A3/S3 shape always looks good in Merlin Purple when I see one. :cool:

    I like that colour too, reminds me of BMW Techno-Violet which is one of my all time favourite colours :)

    Looks cool, be surprised if you don't have the interior light pack and you have rear parking sensors.
