    Mirrors Aluminium not chrome!

    Its all a personal choice, I took off my chrome/alloy/bling mirrors and went for painted ones, one of the best things I ever did to the car personally. The genuine ones are ****** expensive so thats probably why they get nicked! A few quid on paint and a bit of time preping and you could...

    Mirrors Aluminium not chrome!

    Some just paintede satin silver would be better than the chrome eBay ones if you really dont want body coloured ones.

    Best place to advertise an S3

    Am I allowed to post that up here? I think the last time I was on here there was a clamp down on people actually advertising cars (even just with prices) on the main forum as there is an actual classifieds section (which is it has just been advertised in)

    Selling a higher milage S3

    To some people anything over 80k is high even tho with some S3s 10years old its natural if they were used daily. My Rallye having 100k on is was seen as high, even tho thats 5k a year over its life

    Selling a higher milage S3

    Thanks JS, I dont wanna overprice it or sell myself too short. HTC, cambelt was done at 80k when the conversion was, will leave it all for now and leave it as a bargaining tool for someone. Will be putting it on PistonHeads and will get some mates to put it up on the different forums for me
