    After owning my Nogaro Blue 8L S3 for over a year and a half I've decided to upgrade, to an 8P S3 :)

    I picked this up yesterday, it's a 2008 Audi S3 in Solar Orange, 21,000 miles, full heated leather, sat nav, privacy glass, flat bottom multifunction steering wheel etc, it's absolutely beautiful.

    Here are a few pictures:

    It's a little ostentatious but I like that lol. No real plans for it other than a possible remap and maybe some different wheels, that's it really.

    C&C welcome :)

    Cheers

    Epsom Audi have an 8P3 S3 in solar orange at the moment. Did not think that was a standard colour anymore?

    I was looking at a Solar S3 when I bought mine, just don't think I could drive an orange car. They look sweet in the metal though, just not very "me".

    Thank you :wub:

    Good evening, yes I'm on there as Peachy, sure have :D

    I'm the same but my friend has one in Sprint Blue and my old S3 is Nogaro Blue so I fancied a change :)

    I'm not too sure? This is from the factory and hasnt been painted but I dont think I've seen any sportbacks etc in orange now that I think of it?

    They are a little out there, I've taken a slagging in work tonight over it but I love it. It is very bright though lol.

    Cheers!

    I was never planning to buy a new car right now, I knew I wanted an 8P S3 or a 135 M Sport next but I drove past this one so many times that I decided just to go in and go for it, otherwise I would still happily be driving the blue one!

    Good plan, a friend of mine is coming to hopefully buy the 8L tomorrow so it would still be local, could hopefully grab a few photos together.

    Amazing arent they :)
