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.

Yeah, those were pretty much the main reasons pushing me to have it :happy:

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.

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:
