    Finally got round to giving the car a quick clean today and got a few snaps of it, I would like to get round to claying it and giving it a proper wash and wax someday, but its just finding the time!!!!

    Sorry for the big pix in advance...

    Looking good. I'll probably get shot down for this but I still think the Avus alloys look really good. Recently got mine refurbed for free and definately sticking with them now they look mint.

    Have to agree about the wheels mate, think the only upgrade I would do is to the 18" S4 Avus rims.

    Still think silver suits the s3 but blacks the better colour :)

    Stunning, very clean car mate. Doesn't seem .like there is a mark on it. Also, have to agree with the Avus alloys. One of the best Audi alloys still

    Thanks for all the comments guys....

    I thought the seats were quite 'lairy', however I think they look alot better in the flesh.

    Quite annoyed today though, as there is a big tree outside the house above the drive and the sap keeps dropping on the car, so went out this morning to find a 'sticky' car!!!

    Think I might need to invest in a car cover now.

    Haha, like that idea, however I think I might have someone ending up using it on me, if I did it to one of the trees on my road!!

    Just stick some iron nails into the offending tree and watch it wither and die when the nails go rusty.

    I would love to get rid of the tree, but its HUUUGE!!!

    Therefore when it does wither, just the way Karma goes, it would probably fall on and crush my beautiful S3!!!

    Have to agree about the Avus. It's weird, the s3 just doesn't feel right without them for me. They're not my favourite wheel by any means - but when an s3 is riding on anything else, just doesn't look like it should.

    Car looks great nilz, paint looks like new - mine needs some attention soon.

    I should be going on Wednesday, let me know if you are, we can meet up there.....

    Stacie - thanks, i know i need to get the ol' touch up out, but knowing me, ill mess it up!!!

    I just went for the outer on mine, it would have looked too black had I done the rings too.

    i'll double check about Weds, I'll let you know tomorrow.

    Cool, drop me a PM about Weds mate.

    would i be right in saying that it isnt strictly nessesary to remove the pipe on the left that clips to the OEM SMIC.....my original plan was to lead from that which then wouldnt require removal of the said sensor yes?
