    Yeah I think that would look sweat with the red stitch, definitely something to consider in my opinion!

    v good looking car mate. have me wishing i'd held out for a red one instead of going for black twice in a row lol.

    get TT vents instead of S3 ones. they totally transform the interior. every time i see mine it gives me a little smile.

    yea i'm very happy with the red, it just suits the car down to the ground, i agree with you the TT vents would be nice but i cant help thinking about the S3 ones matching my rns-e buttons (as you can see above)

    post a picture of your up there mate would you?

    Thanks Sarah, wouldn't say i'm steaming, just seems that way because i had most of the mods planned and parts bought, just getting it done was the problem lol i've got a notion for the S3 skirts, think thats all the outside is lacking.....but wow they are expensive

    I was just on ebay and a guy had an S3 dash for sale, asked him if he would sell the vents separate and he even listed them separate incase there were any problems which was sweet! I think their gonna look good as they match the chrome RNS-E buttons

    Obviously never owned an A4 from the md 90's, they fade really bad!

    Your right though, vauxhalls seem to suffer more than most.

    No of course i can only speak in terms of the modern paint, very hard to work IMO. Well i keep on top of mine, clay/polish/wax every so often keeps it looking new

    Looks the business mate :) Amazing photos and Great photo skills. Always liked Red A3s...
    I saw a comment on another thread that you said you were gonna get lamin-x if you do go for tint as mine are smoked and quite dark wasnt too keen on it at first but its grown on me. Keep up the good work and looking forward to your next mod

    cheers boys, i'm not that convinced in the lamin-x couldn't see me doing it anytime soon, but as for other mods ive a few small touches for the interior planned and if i can get my hands on some S3 skirts i think they are a must

    PMSL.....those pro photos always kill me at how they manage to make something out of nothing - not meaning your car personally, but just the picture of the S-Line on the seat has some kind of eerieness to it. Brilliant.

    Loving red too mate - got the sportback in red. This is my second red Audi, and I've yet to have any fading too, although I'm out there every week as well keeping a close eye on keeping the car in as perfect condition as I can. Saying that though, it can sometimes seem a little 'cloudy' :
