    For those with S3's do you have the black S3 caliper covers on both front and rear wheels?

    So in the UK black and front only, but front and back in other countries? Just trying to work out whether to kick off at the garage or not ;)

    What do you mean "covers"? There are no covers on mine but they are painted black, are yours just bare metal?

    So had a good look at 3 door S3 at Salisbury Audi today and thought I'd look at this so I know what I'm going to get.

    It had black callipers all around but the front ones had an S3 logo on. From what I could see S3 logo was on a black metal plate on the middle of the front calliper. the The rear callipers have no distinguishing features apart from being painted black. This particular S3 was delivered 3 weeks ago.

    Yeah the back ones are totally standard from what I could make out like on normal A3's but painted black (oh and other difference is they are attached to pretty big discs!!)

    If you can try and watch the repair man do it. It's magic, such a skill.

    All will be right with the world when it's done!
