    They still look great IMO. One went past me while I was walking around work at lunch. They do look great (prefer red with grey alloys), but I think I would be disappointed with the rear (too bland) and the seats!

    Concentrate on getting yourself sorted, financially, first lad. Cars can be modded at any time.

    you'll really love the fuel consumption, diesel over petrol wins, diesel over s3 will seem like a miracle lol

    hope you're happy with it dude and things go well for you (get your mate on here too ;))

    Had one of those, black one. You really wont be dissapointed, underrated car IMO. I had one for 3 years from new did 90K in it, didnt miss a beat, gave me 50+ and went well too. Look up dragon tuning once youve got it, its a plug in and adjustable tuning chip which gives you around 30 more BHP, i had one and...wwhoooosshhh I actually trialled one for them as mine was the first 05 FR they had tried it on (so i got it for free)

    Interior is quite similar to an A3

    They are booked at 150BHP but on the forums plenty had standard cars dynod and few were less than 160-170 standard, twas a head scratcher.
