    new rns aswell with ami, ur blessed huh lol, enjoy

    If the 8P would have the electronic handbrake fitted now then I'd be having one of them now, but it just annoys me now with the handbrake position & no boys its not a mod I can undertake for once

    I've been driving an A6 loaner for the last couple of weeks. It has the electronic handbrake and I'm still not used to it. Seems so unnatural, and would suck on the skid pan, haha!

    Yes, the nav is tres cool. The increased res is much better than I first thought too. It's certainly no big deal to not have it, but it's a nice bit of kit to look at all the same.

    Lima, if youve got blackout grilles and black rims, its all abut the black wing mirrors! They do look tasty!

    AU$135 (approx £70) for 4 x 15 minute sessions, which includes an instructor if you want.

    The best part was Mrs Lima took her GTI on course as well. It was her first time doing anything like this and the instructor was really good and was able to guide her through the day. She started tentatively and ended the day like this...

    Looks a bit nippy out mate!
    I found this thread while looking for pics of an S3 in Ibis White and I have to say I am glad I have ordered that colour. I now have a wait, about 6 weeks to go so counting it down!

    Hope you are enjoying yours, I am sure are. :yes:

    Yeah, we've had lots of visits from Jack Frost these last few mornings and looking like plenty more to come too!

    Ibis White is the best colour, anyone who tells you different has NFI, haha. The blackour grille package completes the look as well, you will be stoked.

    Cheers

    These have been fitted with 225/40/18 Goodyear F1 Asymmetrics and with the rubber fitted they were noticeably lighter than the BBS CKs that came off the car, which was a nice surprise.

    Thanks. I probably need to alter the ride height, but that will come in time I guess. :lazy:

    That looks great in my opinion, I do like black alloys on a white car! That's what i'll be looking to do on mine, not sure whether to fit the S3 mirrors or to fit the black gloss ones?

    Your car overall though is stunning, sure your proud and happy to own it!

    Yep, still loving the car. I would like to get an ECU reflash I think and lowering it something I would consider too. Overall, though, the car suits my needs well so I'm in no rush to turn the car into something its not (if that makes sense). That's not meant to be a criticism of people who do mod their cars, not at all ... I can live vicariously through you all!

    Looking good, the colour suits Ibis. Bet they wear better in Oz than on the roads over here lol We were hoping to make the jump to WA but may not happen, but if it does, cars will be coming too!
