    Spotted at Audi Driver International at Castle Combe yesterday. It has been resprayed so not original colour (despite it being a V plate and hence a potential for an authentic white car). The search for an authentic UK white S3 goes on....

    That has confirmed my suspicions that an S3 8L in white with a motorsport theme would suit...

    Hmmmmmm

    I think that car deserves some thicker spoked alloys.. not liking those... very gorgeous in white though!

    Really like that. Rear end reminds me slightly of that new uber golf that was on top gear last week.........tho I imagine the S3 handles better :)

    front lights and wheels dont suit it IMO, and rear badge is no where near in the right place. other than that it looks good!

    I like it alot, its ringing bells though! I think it might be a staff car from a magazine, not sure maybe Rev's if I remember correctly. One of their writer's bought a V reg Silver S3 with the plan to turn it into a track day beast and was putting a cage in it last time I saw!

    Maybe it is or maybe its not! :sly: Looks good :)

    Ummm been thinking about going white on mine, not overly impressed by that though..

    Horrible Wheels
    Manky Lights....

    Waste of a car with HUGE ambitions... STD lights, and some PHAT white rims would make it a billion times nicer!

    Yep I think your right there, a nice set of light weight racing wheels! :)

    eeeerm, the wheels he has on there are OZ supperleggras(sp?), wheels generally don't get more light weight or racing than these imo, unless you fork out £2.5k+ for forged items.

    I'm sure there was a user on here who had a official white S3. Either in Oz or Spain?

    Very nicely hidden intercooler too.

    Cage looks a bit pointless though, it doesnt look to go to the front in some other pics I saw, whats the point in a cage if is isnt going to box in the driver?

    I agree with you Dave - it was just a 'show' cage - i.e. in the rear part of the car. Can't see the point of one of these as you say as it would be absolutely useless in most accident situations and if anything could be more dangerous as it is likely to break up and stab you in the head!

    I dont think the wheels are too bad

    The front lights are a real shame thou, they look terrible and im not a fan of the black grille and rear badge but hey! thats my opinion

    So what we are all saying is it's a nice car, but a bit chavvy for our tastes? :)

    Think the colour was the main reason, white really suits it.

    I actually like the front lights but definately agree on the rear lights needing to be upgraded too facelift. Also sort that badge out on the boot... looks silly in the wrong place!

    Hi guys its been a while here is a pic of an Audi S3 from South Australia

    [​IMG]

    unfortunately i have sold my car 2 months ago and when i first owned people are like ewww white Audi until they see it they fall in love. Funny enough now white is in fashion and i sold my car pretty quick as there are not many A3T's in White around ;)

    Hi thanks for the kind words.

    The body kit is the Projektzwo kit which is the nicest kit they ever made for the A3 www.projektzwo.de.

    I kept the Breyton's as i think they are timeless styled wheel that suits all Audi's and because they cost me big $$$.

    356 was my mates which i used for the wedding. That thing flies as it has a 2 litre in it!

    [​IMG]

    I picked Imola as its a really rare colour for the TT just like Casablanca was for the A3.

    I bet! I've got a 1.8 twin carb in mine with 90bhp. Even with a standard Beetle gearbox it goes pretty well - then again, it only weighs 750kilos. Here's a piccie:

    Dont make me laugh!!!!

    If u think ur so sure start a poll!

    Why did Audi use Projektzwo kits as a factory accessory for their A3 range since 97?

    STFU Noob!
