Wow...That looks beautiful. What's the name of those alloys? Gorgeous.
Posted these in the detailing forum but thought they should probably go here aswell...
thats one beautiful S3...:icon_thumright:
A quick introduction along with this pic. Here is my 2002 225 S3. Absolute Red. Owned the car just over 1 year now and have enjoyed every minute. Car has done just a shade over 55000 miles. I also own a MK1 Golf Gti 1983 in Black and the masterplan is to respray the MK1 this summer from shell and completely rebuild then find a B5 RS4 in Nogaro Blue to finish off the trio, consider the RS4 as a family car. J
Looks great, considering a set of RS4 wheels for mine.
ian what do you use to polish your car?
loving the red s3s keep them coming guys lol
Jeffs Werkstatt Carnauba Kit.
Applied the Prime last May and just top up the top layer of Jett every now and again.
I bought is as the 3 product kit but I can't see it now.
Welcome to ASN. Sounds like you have good taste! I'd love a black Mk1 GTi and a Nogaro Blue B5 RS4 too... Would be a great combo!
thanks bhavin1986. alloys are 18" dezent motions with 15mm spacers on the front and 20mm on the rear, lowered on fk variant 1's.
Thought i'd better finally post some pics of my car.
Finally got round to giving it a really good clean, spent about 4 hours on it, but well pleased with the results.
2003 Denim Blue 1.9 TDI Quattro Sport
Looks good Steve.
You can certainly tell the weathers picking up with the amount of clean cars appearing in threads all over the place
Oh yea, so just tell me when you are free to give my car a once over ok Tom
Spent two days cleaning the car, and had to have a cheeky photoshoot. Perfect new multi-storey car park at Uni at night so was deserted. Used a Nikon Digital SLR of some sort (borrowed), and a couple pals' VWs. Far too many pics to post, but here are a few:
Sorry, I'm no pro with the images, but had a crack!
Heres one of mine not very good but il post some more when I get it back from the garage
Looking good Bhav, front end looks good with the blacked out look
Just a couple of mine
Pic of my s3 and my mates s4
S3 Nattie , that is impressive
Rare unmolested example
some awesome looking A3's and S3's lads.
thought it was about time i posted some pics of my current A3 and my New !! arrival. thats enough typing heres the pics
and the new arrival!!! freshly washed and polished today (4hrs great way to spend St.Paddys day when ur Irish )
all C + C welcome
The S3 is very nice
A few pics of my A3, it's actually Ming but looks much darker in the pics. Fitted coilies at the weekend, happy with how she sits now. Anthracite wheels coming soon
Anyway, enough waffle:
Thanks for that. Im 50/50 though weather to black out the headlight like the red A3 on this page
still need light tints all round.
Right, been on here long enough should really show some pics... this is my pride after a good clean today ust in time for it to rain!!!
and a little reflection shot fom a previous full blown detail on the car
UUUEERRGGHH!!! Whose that ugly mutt???
Very nice mate, looks gleaming
Loving that look mate, the rims look spot on!!
I'd leave it as it is
About time too Rav,Awesome thats sweet
Thought I better give the S3 a clean today and ended up giving it a pre-proper going over polish. Took some pics with the brothers 25th Golf.
And an arty farty pic which I thought looked quite cool.
Using these 19" rims temporarily while my others are worked on, just thought i would try something a bit different.. They are from a Bmw X5 and are 9" front and 10" rear
I quite like the look of those X5 rims
yes those X5 rims look pretty good...:icon_thumright:
18 inch S8 rims (2004)
RH Porsche Turbo Cup 3 - fitted on with adapters 5x130 -> 5x100
front 8,5J with 235-40-18 - rear 10J with 255-35-18
I had bought the S3 in dec '06 on RS6 18 inch wheels... MAM's so German quality!
I'm fond of wheels; RS6, New RS4, Evolution s038 black, New S8, what's next?
18" New RS4's titanium look - Dunlop SP 9000
With the Evo's, I have had them for 4 weeks, didn't like the look at all 18 inch is way to small for a black hart. With Dunlop SP 9000
And then what a lot of guy's will like:
2009 updates doorhandles and 20" Audi new S8 with Pirelli P Zero Nero
(never buy Pirelli's in 20", with even 8mm it will get useless and dangerous! the cheeks of the tyres will tear in for 4 / 5 mm so the canvas is way too fast shown under an Audi S3 with 250 hp and too much torque for these tyres)
2010: what would be next? black BBS CH / Le Mans with gray hart / Porsche 19" Wheels / or ???
Yes! This is what I want, but i'd be very happy with 18s.
Never seen 20s on an S3 before! They look huge! What's the ride quality like? Bumpy?
Liking the 10" rears on the A3, madness!
Black Edition 1.8tfsi S line with some subtle 18" wheels
1.8 TFSI BE w/Open sky system
Everybody thought that the 20" were 19". Driving them is like 19" but the steering is different with 20"
The A3 and 255 at the rear... use the handbreak and the nose will move in fact of the back
Spent a lovely Sunday giving my car a spring clean and thought I'd post up some pics!
Only spent 4-5 hours on it, went over it with the DA and menzerna 85RE on a Lake Country pad. Waxed with Dodo Blue Velvet hard wax.
Still some light swirls remaining didnt have time to fully correct, (I will be giving her a proper polish in the summer over a couple of days) pic taken before LSP
Few more pics later on at my birds house
