Which suspension do you have? The stance is very nice. Little bit nose down, but not too low.
I am planning to have Eibach SportKit put on mine. Already have S-Line suspension, which is 25mm lower than standard so SportKit will make it 20mm lower. That is the lowest I can go since we usually have plenty of snow in the winter, so going lower would cause problems then.

It's Eibach ProKit. The nose isn't down. It's just an uneven ground and an angle I took the picture from. I'd rather say the hight of the front and the back is equal. You'd get more drop with a slight lower back than front on the Eibach Sportline. If you have so much snow, I recommend to consider the Pro kit instead.

:sign omg: Get that car cleaned!

:tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:
Was at the walled garden at Gordon Castle.
My excuses include their driveway must be about a mile long and was a bit of a state likely due to the heavy rain earlier in the month. Also been up in that neck of the woods all week so no car washing at all (although tbh it hadn’t been cleaned for a week or so before we left!).

After comparing A3 pictures with ProKit and SportLine, I ordered a set of SportLine springs today. ProKit would have been too close to the current height. Even though winter and snow... I think I can manage those few months.

Moved into an FL S3 Saloon from my PFL A3 Sportback this week.

Will get more up of the new car when I get a chance.

Not a crazy spec but a well looked after car with my most important options of Tech Pack/VC and B&O.

Daytona grey, always said I wouldn’t move from the PITA that is black but on seeing it in person love the Daytona Pearl, is already hiding dirt a lot better than the black. Doesn’t mean I’ll clean it less.

To say I’m enjoying it is an understatement, think my petrol budget might rise a little though...

Will probably sort black optics before too long as think it works nicely with the grey from other pics I’ve seen. Maybe rear tint too.

In 2 minds about the Quattro decals, bit in your face, would rather be a bit more on the dl but kind of starting to like them. They will probably end up going.

Looking good buddy, just the pipes to do now

Sorry but need to ask, has the neighbour finished building the house yet?

Hi Barry
Hope you’re well mate.
Spot on re the pipes, they’re terrible but tbh I can’t be a***d working on them at the mo lol
Yeah the neighbours are well settled in now. Which is why I’ve let the trees grow up a bit. Only downside is the auld guy keeps trying to talk to me when I’m applying stuff to the car and can’t stop or it’ll dry onto the paint before I can jet it off haha

Glad to hear it, thought that would never be finished
Nothing worse when the neighbours stop to chat mid wash and 30mins later u can’t remember what’s still to do, next house might need to be more remote with no neighbours

I'm on vacation but visited my work place yesterday in order to pick up a package with a set of new alloys. Got an opportunity to take a couple of pictures for my instagram. I like pictures of cars taken at industrial places as the one posted by @unitzero.

We were really lucky finding that location. We just met up and drove off and happened upon this industrial estate with all the pallets.
Not sure if even remember where to find it again !

Getting settled. Looking a bit lower from the front and rear has stayed about the same.

Sorry about the dirty car. But fall has begun here, so it is not worth trying to keep her clean.

Very sad! How comes? Assuming a change of circumstances.

Wish I owned it.

Yeah exactly, similar situation here. Can’t afford to play the hot hatch game anymore. MK7 GTI before this was much more affordable and I just pushed my budget too far this time.

Picked up my 'newish' A3 S-Line 35 this morning from the dealer. So far only had a 20 minute trip to work after collection but it's much better than my old 8P 1.6 TDI.

Already done the beep on lock, needle sweep. Looking at doing a few more changes in my carista app. Quite tempted by the S-Line puddle lights on ebay.

Car looks fantastic as always mate - one of the best looking S3's IMO and love the S3 Saloon in Navara with those alloys and contrasting chrome :icon thumright:

You still happy with the car - any thoughts yet on what you might go for next ?
