    Hi guys, haven't posted in a while. Bought an S3 a towards end of 2009. Absolutely loved it but the opportunity to buy a second property for a good price came along recently so the S3 had to go to free up some cash.
    This was the S3

    Anyway I am now using a 1.8T A3 sportback which went from this....

    to this.......

    Would love to get an S3 again but that will probably be next year so i'm thinking i might aswell hold onto my A3 Sb until the new platform S3 comes out.

    Thanks for looking

    Ye the had 25mm H&R's. It was the perfect drop. Paid £180 for them from awesome GTI. Funny thing is i didn't actually get the plate for the s3. It's just an abbreviation of my name selven lol (s3lv x)

    Cheers .At first i missed the performance of the S3 but now i really like the A3 1.8T. The A3 is S-tronic which i didn't really like at first have but have got used to, but i do still miss manual from time to time. I think the 1.8t is a great engine. The good thing is that it is fairly nippy and does well on the MPG so a good compromise.

    Defo liking the red/black contrast - good choice. Suits the standard bulbs well in that colour.

    Cheers rockape. Nothing major planned, probably just some My11's rear lights, then i'll be pretty much be happy with the car. But then the more you look around this forum the more ideas you start to get lol

    I know the feeling. I've took a break from mods(not that I've done loads) whilst I learn how to correct the paintwork. I think some new dampers then possibly more power next Lol. The rear lights don't half update the rear and I would suggest chrome pedals too?

    +1. MY11 rear lights on Misano Red looks great and the aluminium pedals spice up the interior.
