    New S3 Brake Rust

    I can't feel them coming on (disc dry function) but the brakes are noticably stronger in the wet! Cool. Anyway 7000 miles - no rust.

    S3 tyre wear

    Has anyone checked thier front tyres yet? Mine are a few mills off the wear indicators, after only 7000 miles. Also what would be the best new fronts or swaps to the back? The backs are in pristine condition - so much for the 40/60 bias (f/r)

    New S3 Brake Rust

    4000 miles and still no rust. Don't forget the s3 has auto disc dry function in conjunction with auto screen wipe, ensuring that the hubs stay hot in rainy conditions.

    New S3 Brake Rust

    i believe the thread was about s3 wheel rust? My a3 3.2 rusted really bad. the hubs are different on s3...

    New S3 Brake Rust

    you're all wrong. Nearly 3000 miles and no rust. The secret being - never ever let anyone but you wash the car. And never use any acid/alkaline wheel wash. Just soap and water....

    2 x 3.2 Owners S3 test drive.

    The must be mad reference was due to buying a 56 plate in Jan/Feb and not waiting until 07 plate comes out. The reason I did it was because the dealer made me an unrefusable offer on my 3.2 which would have been considerably less if I waited until March. DSG - great, not for performance...

    anyone who thinks the 3.2 is as much fun or as quick as an S3 is deluding themselves...

    s3 daytime driving lights

    Has anyone investigated swapping these out yet? They are noticibily more yellow than the xenons..

    Guess what I've been doing at the dealers?

    okay give me a few days, the proper camera can't be connected to the pc right now (I've just moved house and the pc's in a box). Phone camera is naff. But what I would say is get the front and rear sides done, mine's a bit like a fast van at the minute with only security on rear & rear sides..

    So besides the sunblind, no one spotted the security glass? The car has the darkest rear side and rear screen tinting I've ever seen... Dealer fit.

    an arty shot, but really shows off the xenons, check the lens arcs..

    I though it was cool of chester audi to line her up with an RS4, apparently its just come out of the showroom for demo. Hard to believe really. Such an expensive car. They've also got an s6 in sprint blue too!

    Guess what I've been doing at the dealers?

    The spec is as you say flat bottom, 2-tone leather, auto wash/lights, FCA, cruise, rear park sensors, BOSE, 6 cd changer in glove, interior light pack, and I think home link too.. It wasn't my order. And a bit expensive really. Still loving that flat bottom, it feels a lot smaller than the sline...

    Can I just say the flat bottom steering wheel adds 25 bhp and takes at least 0.5 sec off 0-60 time too.
