    Congradulations mate... its stunning i've only ever seen one in red and it's from around my area and i reckon they look amazing. It's got MTM alloys on aswell so looks very nice.

    Mate got more pics up.... couple are just not satisfying enough for me.

    And enjoy it.. as i'm sure you will. :thumbsup:

    Very very smart! Love it!

    Did you consider speccing the black optics option? Red with a black grill would look even better (in my opinion anyway!)

    Enjoy! :thumbsup:

    Not much different,drives the same,this one is better specced than my previous one (sat nav,rain sensors,lumbar support,phone prep) but looks so much meaner at the front and I think I prefer the new standard wheels as well.
    And I like the fairy lights:icon_thumright:

    Cracking looking car mate. It's nice that some of the older more classic colours are making a well deserved comeback.

    Its a nice car admittedly, but is it me or are the wheels looking tad small on the S3 now, since I've seen them on any 8P they've looked to small even if 18's in this new facelift style that is

    Never said it was new,ex demo with low miles fairly good spec at what seems a good price,I was originally looking at a prefacelift in red and this turned up and just had to have it:thumbsup:
    Only driven it for 200miles so far but as its going to be used as my main car I gently drove it home and got an adverage of 36mpg ,so its going to be a few gentle drives with the occasional blast:racer:
    Optic pack next

    Like it. I considered red before opting for sprint blue. My last car (Leon R) was red so decided on a change and went for blue.
