    I have only just seen this thread as I don't visit this site as much as I used to when the S3 was new (to me). I bought mine private but did HPI it. Now I know HPI doesn't spot a "clone" but in this case it would have spotted the outstanding debt and the odd colour change, this would have lead...

    What are the best tires for the S3

    I wanted the F1's all round however when I fitted them to the front I found my car had very good balance withthe Bridgestones on the rear. At the limit they both let go at a similar pace so I dont get the understeer usually associated with an S3. Worth a go to use your existing tyres on the rear...

    anybody on here had the switchable 50-50 split fitted? if so how does it feel on a track? Also when it is in the off position does it behave as per standard or is there a difference in response as per the sport fitment mentioned above? cheers

    shotblasting and sparaying cost?

    you are still probably looking at £50 per wheel, unless anyone else knows different and if so please let me know as I have been holding off perfecting my wheels as they are not in bad condition the small marks just niggle me but not quite enough to justify £200+

    very well spotted, why do people do that. surely it is illegal to misrepresent your motor in this manner without stating the photos are of a similar car??????

So I put air in the tyres reset the ave MPG and drove it home, apart from recording very low MPG I noticed the AVE MPG counting down whilst...

    S3 on Ebay EVERY EXTRA

    Not keen on the illegal plates, they only really look good on a period motor. As for the rest of the car it looks nice, so he made a mistake stating it had every extra. I doubt he thought people would be spending their morning pointing out what it doesn't have!!!! :)
