    Hi guys

    Just thought I would say hello, I am new hear and I am picking up my s3 tomorrow. It was a demo from Harrogate.

    Red
    Sat Nav
    Leather Recaros
    Black optic pack
    GSM phone prep
    Dimming and folding mirrors
    Flat Bottom multi fuction wheel
    Piano black inlays
    Tracker
    Bose

    and I think that is it! Just a few questions, Boot Linner, went in to my local stealer and tay said they was not one availble for the A3/S3 3dr 4WD is this true??

    Also has any on got any pics of a red s3 with 19" RS4 wheels?

    Thanks

    Nathan

    I hope you've still got the 340R. Might find the S3 a bit dull by comparison :icon_thumright:

    yep still got the 340R arlight, although that is tucked up for the winter at the minute. I am sure the S3 will keep me happy as a every day car, well I hope it will:yes:

    Thanks for the nice comments guys. Yer deals are there to be had alright. I would not settle for any thing less than 5% disccount on a new one! I bought mine at trade price as I got my mate at my local Renault dealer to buy it in! Got it for very decent money and also got a great trade in price for my car as the dealership already had a buyer! Every ones a winner!

    Picking it up at 3pm, can't wait! Peeing it down in Newcastle tho!!!

    How is the number plate plinth attached to the grill? or is it part of the grill? can i buy the black plinth separate from the grill and surround?

    Thanks

    Nice. Haven't actually seen a red one.

    I bought from stock so missed out on the black grill (I did change over and fit a black grill to my old sportback from german e-bay seller).

    Would be interested in doing it again to my S3. I think the black grill looks more aggressive. E-bay none not even a german seller this time.

    Anyone got a supply price to retro fit S3 black grill?

    I have a red S3 and it looks the business. Mine has the standard grill rather than the black one. The silver, black and red bits go really well together

    Love the red.

    I would have red if my 2.0 TQ hadn't been.

    Although I have had more comments about how good the colour is on my s3.

    The orange is quite a bold color choice :icon_thumright:

    Do you have more pics of your misano? especially under different light conditions.

    I am going to take some proper pictures tomorrow when I get a chance to wash and detail it! Hope the rain stays aways for just one bloody day!!!!!

    Thanks for the load liner tip, i will get in touch with the guy!

    oh and thanks for all the nice comments, I wanted Wite but I am very happy with red. Orange and Imola where a bit bold for me this car. I had a yellow Exige and that looked amazing!
