    I saw the bidding end few days ago. Just realised youve been hiding such a cool looking number plate. Im curious as to what it means

    My brothers nickname “china” (he looks chinese lol) can’t really tell from the back plate, but the front one which was occasionally in the windscreen had a black cap between the “11” to make the H lol. Not the best of plates but hid the age of the car, not that anyone believed it was a 54 plate anyway

    Haha, i coudlnt figure out what it said at first but now you mention it i cant unsee china now . Seems like your brother must have stuck with that nickname enough to get that plate, or you bought it to **** him off. Either way that plate still looks cool though

    Morning all,

    Im back in an Audi again after some time!
    This time a proper S3 lol

    2010 Audi S3 S-Tronic 3dr Hatchback

    Not going to do any mad conversion/retrofits on this one
    Bit high on the miles but only 2 previous owners and all maintenance work has been carried out (cambelt + waterpump replaced and haldex + stronic services done)

    Does anyone know what this colour is called? Not very common and can’t seem to find the exact name for it

    Thinking of doing the grill and lower valance from grey to gloss black but not too sure atm

    If that is the one it seems to be a £1,700 option from new which probably explains the rarity of it.

    It's on page 29 of this http://blog.le-parnass.com/catalogue_pdf/201004_FXDRrY.pdf

    I first thought dolphin grey, but on reflection looks a bit light.

    You are going to get pulled with those smiley sticker on the number plate ......:)

    When you say the belt and pump were done, when ? Mine were done 2 years ago but due again now after " another" 40k miles :)
    So many people expect the first to last 40k and the n never need doing again.

    Haha, lets see how long i get away with them

    Belt and pump done twice, as mileage is over 100k.
    Last done around 90k, first time was around 40/50k (cant remember exactly without looking at service history)
