    Very nice! Congratts! Would be interesting to know how many S3 owners we are right now, seems like there are a new one every week.

    Have we established if there is any difference in the wings c.f. S/A3's like on the 8L's sometimes they look enhanced and other times they don't -anyone know for sure?

    Chins,

    Your car looks excellent. Looks really good in Silver actually...now I've started thinking if I've ordered the right colour or not, again! With my Silver 8L S3 I always thought, "should have got black or dolphin grey" now I'm thinking "should have got silver or dolphin grey" for my 8P, and its not even arrived yet! I can't win.

    The arches do look more pronounced on the silver car. Looks good.

    They're standard. Audi's system is usually to keep the bodywork untouched for the "S" cars but modify it for the "RS" ones.

    Thanks for the nice comments. I actually think it looks nicer in real life. I wont make the next David Bailey.

    Best thing about the steering wheel is that they only charged me for the std multi function steering wheel, not the flat bottomed one.

    Winner, nice motor.

    OFF TOPIC: Do the black mats in the S3 have a colored piping, or any logos?

    I'm happy with the seats as well. Have to be honest and say that the std black pimpled leather didnt work for me and my last 3 cars that have been from VAG - R32, MKVGTI and MK2 TT have all suffered with creased leather where my fat arse sits. This gets round it.

    Very nice looking motor, I like the flat bottomed wheel.

    So is that a plain black plastic dead-pedal I see even in the S3 ?

    Kewl. And I like the wheels... all 5 of them. Mentioning no names but unlike some you won't have to spend your life cleaning the alloys!

    What is the steering wheel like to use?
