    Blue and Black S3 together with nearly matching plates in South Shields, I was the guy in the blue BM you saw behind u taking a pic. I was travelling 40 miles to go have a ride in one and saw you two as I pulled out my drive, found it funny! :p But PM me if you see this as I stay in South Shields and getting an S3 soon if I get the BM sold!

    I've noticed two silver S3s lately local to me in Stourbridge both with S3 private plates! The one had been parking behind my black S3 in my street quite confusing kept hearing it pull up sounding the same as my car.

    Blue S3 travelling east bound on the A303 between Andover & Basingstoke at around 4.45pm today. S3 V** LED's on your license plate certainly look good in the driving rain! :yes:

    Never understood why people delete number plates in pics? The car is seen by 100's of people a day if you drive it round, and is sat outside your house/place of work for people to see. So why take them off pictures?

    Yep....you've nicked a yellow S3 and want to change the plates so you can get it onto a ferry and on it's way to its new Kenyan owner (they use RHD). Come on here....find a picture of a yellow S3.....now you've got yourself some plates to buy you some time on the roads.
