Nice bit of beading....:friends:
Are these the hooks you are referring to?
View attachment 104360 If so you must be doing some serious cornering or you must have a huuuuuge handbag....lol
I was wondering what that was for in the boot....looked at it but couldn't work it out.....you learn something new every day

Cheers mate, I've never been so in love with a material object(!) :D

Haha - definitely an optimists way of looking at the boot lining subject - I'll tell myself the same and then it won't bother me ;)

Or you could think the real reason may be that Audi can't afford to put a bit of material on a £30k car as the margins ar that tight.

I have noticed on pics of S3 with 19" wheels that the tyres are Hankook!! ....Any comments on ride, handling (wet and dry), noise etc.
Conti's I know their qualities. I am just surprised to see Hankooks, as in Canada there is no Hankook tyre available, as of this date, that meets 235/35/Y/19 XL specs and that is also true for the USA

Since Audi introduced Hankook tyres on the TT there have been a Hoorah....about German cars being fitted with...Korean tyres...and l agree with this....for a start they dont look as good, they are less expensive...etc etc...and are not befitting to the Audi Brand....on the TT on 19"s its a lottery to what make of tyre you get....most likely it's Hankook....or if your lucky Bridgestone Potenza....if you opt for the optional 20" alloys on the TT you get P-Zeros...

Hankook tyre's don't belong on a Audi full stop

It's here and I'm loving it already!!! Was sad to see the Mlite go as I drove her to the stealer but that didn't last long once a few miles were put on the clock in the S3.
Apologies for the poor light photo but having collected it earlier tonight the light was fading fast. We're spending the day tomorrow getting her shined up properly so hope to have some better photos up soon.

7 months after first ordering a PFL I finally picked up my FL today. Very happy with the colour!

Lovely looking vehicle in Navarra.
Delighted I've gone for that colour for a change after a few black, white, grey cars.

Hey Carlo, very nice car :D
Wanted to ask, did you get the matrix LED headlights option with yours? Don't know if the design actually looks different to normal LED headlights. I've ordered my s3 sedan and didn't go for that particular option however might regret it now only because I've been reading only the matrix LED options has the dynamic turn signals at the front.

I've noticed a lot of nicely washed and polished cars on this thread (mine previously also :grinning:)
Anyway, here's mine not so clean.

Coming from a black car, I know that 'not so clean' tends to be the car about an hour after washing it ;-)

I came back from a week away in Scotland on Saturday, the car was filthy but I didn't get the chance to wash it over the weekend. I went back in work last night and when I came out this morning I was embarrassed by the sate of it...I woke up at 2.30pm this afternoon, looked out the window and it was dry!!! I just had to wash it and get it clean again...so gave it a bilberry wheel clean-prewash-snowfoam-rinse-hand wash-dry-QD-hoovered inside :)

I can sleep again now lol.
