    Hey, just thought i'd join up and say hello, My names Matty and i'm 19 just bought meself a S3 and its probably the best thing i've ever done i love it to bits. i opted for the pre facelift model as i think it looks just as good and dont want to be stung on higher road tax hehe. Have changed the badges to the facelift ones tho and put a s3 private plate on it. Plans for the cars are just put a revo stage 1 on it, get the wheels done in gloss black and leave it at that. Have added a few pictures hope you like! sorry pic quality aint too marvellous lol! (Hope i done the links right haha)

    Nice car....a word of advice. Find yourself a local rolling road, get it done before you have the Revo put on. Worthwhile getting a benchmark figure and you can see what difference any mods make to the car.

    Welcome.

    Matty-YellowS3 - You do only live once, and nice trick with the insurance. I put my gf on mine, even though she refuses to drive "The AUDI" but it knocked it back a coupel of hundred :whistle2:

    AS3TOM, who are you with, cause that is good pricing.

    Greenlight seems to be a good company to go with, but you need to be over 24 and have at least a year no claims.

    i'm with churchill, and the wife is on the insurance too, she's only 22, however no points, no claims and 5years of ncb - plus i paid it off in one go, monthly direct debits always adds to the premium

    How funny, my gf is 24, 4 years no claims, and it was way more expensive, but that's probably cause I don't have a driving history i this country, oh well, just one of those things, mine was a £1200 one payment :sadlike:
