    They had a new S3 in venetian purple with black optics back and 2 tone leather in in Gilders Sheffield. Took a couple of pics... looked great... for a bird. Has a smoother climate control unit too.

    Also, on a seperate note, I was surprised at how much boot space is inthe cabrio.

    Woooohhhaaaa - not sure about the colour.
    I do like the wheels though.
    And the rear diffuser - it looks a little different

    yeah, I liked the rims too... I think the rear diffuser was a bit fatter.. other than that tho.. the only big difference was the softer edges and labelling of the climate and the lightclusters.

    Def fatter rear diffuser!

    The arches look fatter too, they did say they were modified on the press release.

    Would be interesting to see if they are.

    Diffuser does look bigger, arches will give people more space for spacers LOL

    Tell you what JamS3 - if this track day happens at croft, It'll be really good to get our car's side by side for a bit of spot the difference!
    Both sprint blue, both on H&R springs and spacers!

    The pic Kontra took from the front, the arches do look a little more flared..... ohhh balls, I'm going to want to change aren't I!

    Excellent mate I'm up for that!

    Hopefully the day will be arranged for the second week or so in September so it gives me time to pick the car up and sort the mods out beforehand!

    yeah, that pic from the front does make the arches look more flaired! Didnt notice it whilst I was there, but then I was trying not to look like a weirdo snapping cars in the showroom! ;)

    Covert operations hey mate.... good work though. :detective2:

    Funnily enough, just been doing the sums to see if I can upgrade to the newer model - think I will wait till I've had a look over JamS3's, but might start getting some prices.
    Anyone know more about the magentic ride... can you lower them??????

    Dealer said to me Jamie not to bother aswell which is well honest. Most motoring mags also say its not much different and money is better spent elsewhere.
