Picked up my new S3

    So yesterday I picked up my new (to me) car. Its a 2017 S3 black edition finished in Audi Exclusive Turqoise mica metallic. I'll be honest, I wasn't looking to buy a car until I stumbled across this one on the Audi approved used site.
    Now I'm a die hard 3 door fan so it was sad news when Volkswagen/Audi announced that production had ceased on 3 door models. Generally speaking, I find the majority of 3 door 8V's quite poorly specced in comparison to the sportback variants. So when I found this car, it actually ticked all my boxes of which there are just three.
    1. 3 door (obviously)
    2. Good spec
    3. Facelift
    The car came equipped with the following:
    Black edition trim
    Supersport seats
    Power folding mirrors
    Side assist
    Lane assist
    ACC
    Pre-sense
    High beam assist
    Rear camera
    Front/rear OPS
    Red calipers
    Puddle lights
    Illuminated door sills
    B&O sound system
    19" wheels/Mag ride
    Tech pack (virtual cockpit, wireless charging etc)

    I'm absolutely over the moon with it, so without further ado, here are a few pictures.

    Beautiful @AudiLeon96 ! Congratulations on your new motor. Great spec, too; that's basically exactly what I'd like (apart from some of those things aren't available in the NA market, sadly). Can't wait to see the outside shots. Enjoy!

    Health to drive, never seen that colour before and with it being a 3 door that must be a pretty unique car.

    Hate the way manufacturers are stopping making 3 door versions, I just bought a brand new A35 AMG and I think it looks fantastic but 3 door version would have been even better.

    The way VW did it was proper sneaky. The 3 door Golf R only had a fraction of the options available to the 5 door model. This meant that peeps who like to spec their cars up were forced into buying the 5 door version or be stuck with their preferred 3 door in pauper spec. Result was 5 door sales rose, 3 door sales dropped and VW had a perfect excuse for canning the 3 door.

    I am also a die hard 3dr fan, every hatch I've owned has been 3dr. Congrats on the new car, it's certainly a beauty.

    As promised, here are a few more pictures of the S3. It's somewhat frustrating taking photo's as the colour doesn't seem to come out right. In person there's more of a green tint to the colour. Maybe it's because I'm taking it with my phone but oh well, these will have to suffice for now.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Looks the nuts mate. Best shape s3.
    3 door looks far better than 5 door/4 door.

    Love the colour mate, nice to see a 3 door too. Still have a soft spot for 3 door cars.

    Must admit, when I heard turquoise I braced myself. But that is really nice mate. Not seen it before and it does really suit the car, congrats :thumbs up:

    Good reason why Audi dropped the 3 door =they didn't sell well, most went for the better looking 3 door Golf R instead

    The golf r is a beautiful car in both 3 & 5 door variants, but I couldn't ever imagine getting the golf r over an s3 personally, even though they're the same or very similar underneath :icon thumright:
