    After 3 months waiting, it's finally here! Picked up the S3 today and although I was inconsolable for all of 5 minutes for handing back my lovely A3......I have a big grin on my face now! :)

    It hasn't stopped raining all day so apologies for the bad pics! Its being detailed in 3 weeks so will post up some better pics then!

    With the no-smoking pack do you not get a place to plug in your phone charger or accessory?

    Just not going to Red line it, other than that not push it too hard for the first 300 miles. When do they start to loosen up?

    beautiful colour mate - at least no one will mistake you for an s-line like they do with mine as you have a 's' specific colour

    Thanks! Might get bucket seats next time... :)

    I have to say I absolutely love it already....although the low down power keeps catching me out (still have my diesel head on!)....

    Nice car and choice of bits! Buckets do look good aswell, next time ey.

    Like the attitude to running it in, I say get the 300 miles on sharpish, then drive it like it should.

    Nice Scooby too!

    Yes, absolutely......of course. And lets face it....he is more likely to get pulled over by the police for driving (what could be considered) a "chav car" than me in my respectible S3. :w00t:

    ooh another sprint blue one :lazy:

    Only jesting - lovely motor - enjoy!

    With regards to running in i just :asskicking: mine from the off (but didn't bounce it off the rev limiter), doesn't seem to have done it any harm.

    Less time on the cars, get the lawn sorted out.
    You're only a mattress away from a council garden there, for gowd's sake.

    They all look like that :) out front.
    you should have seen it when they first put it down, it was shocking.
    Anyway much more fun playing with the cars than the garden.
