    Alright peeps, the new car is....

    Cheers man, yeah decided to keep the grill last min, nothing planned for her mate, cant be bothered with anymore mods tbh, Shark St1 is enough power for day use and car has most option from factory, just getting my H&R springs on next week and that will be the end of performance related tweaks. :)

    dont blame you lad. the car looks great at is it. the grill makes it your own so job done. i have seen a pic of a ibis rs3 with black wing mirrors. might look into this as i like the B&W i have carried out then leave things for a while.

    great choice/purchase you made there lad :salute:

    That grille looks so good, really wish I could get it one my 8P2! As for colour change, it makes sense but seems like you'd lose more changing cars (and then buying new) than you would on the colour of the "old" one.

    You and Mark are like twins now - one good, one evil!

    Lovely car mate. The seats are beautiful! Being honest I did prefer the grill on the orange one but that's just me!

    Enjoy!

    Yep, 2011 Orange S3 Black Edition, fully kitted, 19k on the clock. Best offer i got on trade in was £20k where i say a 2010 with 22k on the clock Black Ed for £24k. So yeah Orange ones dnt hold the value so much.

    That orange one was epic tbf, not so fond of the green brake calipers but I gotta say you nailed it otherwise.

    The new one also looks beautiful, very classy. Your engine bay is also :wub:

    great work pal
