    Red S3 3 door giving it the beans in Calne, Wiltshire last week.

    Look like had the 10 spoke alloys. Super Sports seats, maybe pano roof.

    Super noisy from behind. Love it.

    Pulled up to a set of lights this morning to see two saloons on the opposite side of the junction. One White, one monsoon ( I think). Was a bit of rubber necking going on. Not so rare now it seems. 'Twas in Northampton around Sol Central BTW.

    Red, S-Line, TDI Saloon, with 19’s. Right next to me at the bloody lights at Tesco’s Mereway in Northampton.

    Had to double take as I was in my sisters car at the time and was about to have a fit. Almost identical to mine, with the addition of tinted windows.

    Glacier white S3 SB with 10 spoke alloys parked in Charlotte street car park, Bath. Personalised plate.

    If it's your car please lose the gopping black number plate surround that Bath Audi fit to their. It just looks wrong.

    Seen in my local Audi dealers in the last 2 weeks

    Brilliant red A3 saloon TDI s-line with 19's, privacy glass & more that I probably couldn't see

    [​IMG]

    The above now has been sold & replaced with an Audi exclusive paint sprint blue (I think lol) A3 Sportback petrol s-line

    I took delivery of my Audi A3 Sportback 1.4TFSI COD Attraction S-tron last Monday morning (25th Aug).
    It is well optioned with:
    Red with black interior
    Panoramic Sunroof
    Technik Pack
    Style Pack
    Comfort Pack
    Assistance Pack
    Street Legal Window Tint
    Paint & Alloy Protection
    So far I am extremely happy with the car and with Audi Centre Perth in Western Australia. Delivery was three weeks earlier than predicted, thanks Guy's. Now I just need to figure out all the controls...... ImageUploadedByTapatalk1409269541.215739.jpg

    There was a post on here about my new S3 but I had it removed because they had spotted it outside my workplace and given the exact location (including the street name) and it made me nervous seeing that on a public forum.

    Really should keep the locations a bit vague otherwise this thread just becomes a handy shopping directory for thieves!

    Ah....that might be my bad! Think I may have made that post and in hindsight reading your post I gave a bit more detail as it looked like it was parked up in visitor spaces (I was visiting the estate and parked near by). :oops:

    Was such a stunning looking car I thought the owner would def be on the forum as it was immaculate ! Many apologies and lesson learnt.
    I'll go on naughty step tonight :asskicking:

    Don't worry about it, no harm done.

    When I saw your post every other thread on the forum seemed to be talking about how easy it is to steal new Audis without the keys so I thought I'd better get it removed just in case.

    Since ordering my S3, I saw my first S3 on the road yesterday afternoon - a Sepang Blue 64 plate SB going southbound on the M3 past the A303 turn off and doing rooti-toot in the outside lane. Looks fab on the road!
