Was pointed out by a colleague a few weeks ago that I hadn't taken any pics since I got it.
Quite a zippy little thing, and getting 800+kms from a tank is a wallet-saver right now!

Got the sun just right, so a nardo-esque pic.
Getting bored of the s3 now, there's a nardo RS3 up the road from me that sounds lovely. Hmm

Also went out yesturday and did a lovely tour around wales and some parts of the Evo Triangle. All good...'till coming back down the A5 Wrexham - Chester bypass and a safety camera van was sat on a bridge. Time to clench my butt hole for a few days...

OEM 19 inch wheels. Fuchs website says they are 8 J x 19, ET49
Still unsure whether to go to 19s, I run sportlines and ride is just bearable with 18s on my s-line, but really would love some either these wheels (but not many for sale) or some glossy black. Still can't decide.

One last drive out a few days ago, sold the car yesterday. Sick of the unwanted attention, usually chavs in loud slow fiestas. I remember when I was 18 getting excited following a fully modified impreza or supra or something but I didn't sit 3mm from their bumper, more like 3-4 meters behind.
I will miss it for Saturday/Sunday drives but won't miss the attention where I live.
Also ever since I bought it people who drive past my house bang their exhausts. On Sunday night someone stopped outside and did a full launch outside my front gates. I never had this issue before I bought it. Is it supposed to impress me at 3am? I don't understand it.

14 days later without the car and no more banging exhausts outside my house and no more people stopping to do launch mode at 4am!!!. So baffling!!! I must have left the boy race hive mind. So glad.

We used 3m gloss black wrap.
it's holding on very well. we also did the chrome seals around windows which are fine too with the same material.
Would defo recommend as it didn't take much material and time so I'd imagine it wouldn't cost too much. I work at a wrap place so was free lol!

I've had the grill trim and windows done already, but the rear diffuser looks out of place now, going to get it wrapped soon.

Thanks, I have had the chrome surround on the grill and windows done already, but rear diffuser looks out of place, going to get that wrapped soon.
