    I fear this colour is going to be a pain to capture its true depth in normal pictures. But even in overcast daylight the shine and colour is awesome being pearl. To think i wasnt sure on green before i bought it, now im slowly falling in love with it lol.

    Is that definitely cactus green mate? Ive seen a brighter green and was expecting that. Yours looks similar to goodwood green or is that a lot darker?!

    Goodwood is on facelifts and cactus was on pre fl. so I'm aware. Again the pics make it look dull and dark, it's so much better in person in daylight. You'll see soon enough ;)

    Being the previous owner of this car I can confirm that its deffinatly Cactus green and that Goodwood is darker.

    When you see the 2 colours together its more obvious. Although there both pearl Goodwood is more matt if that make sense? Catcus has a brighter look/more shine to it when its in the sun.

    In the short to mid term a 52 plate 5 door 1.2 16v Renault Clio that my dads letting me borrow. The reason for selling the S3 was a combination of wanting a change and the cost of fuel vs MPG, use to cost £60 to fill up the audi when I got it 6 years ago now days its over £80 to brim it (I didnt have a mortgage to pay either back then). Considering buying a honda civic 2.2 ctdi ex, thought about 8p A3 tdi but you can get a lot more for your money with the honda, wont be until next year before I start looking, get christmas and my snowboarding holiday out the way first. The clio does have its plus points (not many) £50 to brim and 45mpg :)

    More to the point, one black mirror and one orange...? That'd drive me nuts.

    Could have done with a bit lower offset on the rear huh? I'm on ET5 rear ET10 front now on 8.5". It's tighter than a scotsmans wallet. pretty sure you'd struggle to get a rizla in there. Looks nice though...

    Yep 18x8.5 on 225 40 tyres, can't remember the offset but I think it was et35 with 15 mm spacers on the back and 10 on the front.

    not the best piant job finish to the wheels though

    This is my a3, had it nearly 2 years now and love it to bits. It's a 2002 1.9tdi 130 with a few handling mods.

    Hello! I'am from finland, and here are some pictures from my s3.

    Pictures are bit old, but better than nothing. :)

    There are still to come few things;

    -Silver mirrors.
    -Plastidip to front grill(Black).
    -Yellow Lamin-X to front fog lights.
    -New wheels for summer.

    The last two pictures "Avus wheels" are my winter wheels, and those black 18" ATP wheels where just sold. :)
