    Well guys,

    Went and picked the A3 up today, what can I say! Pleasure to drive!
    I've had the 1.8T BE before this, mine is the 2.0TDI 140 and doing 80ish with AC on the way back, still managed a very respectable 58mpg :yahoo: Over the Cupra's poor 29mpg :(
    So far I love it, one of the best cars I've owned and definitely a keeper :) The leather still smells brand new, AC is freezing just how I like it :) Paint is in brilliant condition, gave her a quick detail when I got her home, and came out brill! :)

    Now, the wheels I'll either keep these and have them powder coated darker, or if anyone wants them, PM me as I've always loved BBS CKs and will have some one day! Need to get more pictures, here's a cheeky one for now :arco:

    Spec looks really good Dan, best options to add are Cruise and RNSE, probably the easiest options as well. Nige is the man :)

    Anyone else thing it looks a lot more A4ish than usual? I think it's the reflection on the bonnet makes it look low and wide, less rounded than an A3's front end.

    Well, today saw me detailing the car for over 4 hours. To say I'm knackered is an understatement!

    First off came the de-badging,[​IMG]

    After..

    [​IMG]

    Then the detailing began....

    A good polish works wonders, looks spot on in the pics Chap :) Having de badged the back you need to lose the number plate surround as well, thats a cheap and good mod. Get some self adhesive number plate pads from Halfords :)
    EDIT.. especially as its says Skoda :)

    Paddy, the plate has been made with the Skoda+Seat badges at the bottom, it's not a plate surround :( So I'd need new plates which is why I may go down the pressed plate route :)
