Well this day seems to have taken an age to arrive, I have had to wait 11 wweks for the car to arrive but late last week my new S3 Sportback finally landed at an Audi garage near me as they say. I am really looking forward to the change having had BMW's for the last 8 years and whilst on paper it should not be as quick as my 335 in reality I expect it to be a lot closer call.

Spec as follows.

Ibis White
Black Headlining
Bucket Seats
Folding Mirrors
Panoramic Sunroof
Parking Sensors Front & Rear
Privacy Glass
Tyre Pressure Monitors
Piano Black Trims
Black Headlining
Interior Light Pack
Black Styling Pack
Bose
High Beam Assist
DVD Navigation
Bluetooth Phone Prep - Low
AMI
Light and Rain Sensor Pack
Cruise Control

I have changed the standard wheels to 19" Bi-colour Sportec's so they should be on the car when I collect it later today, that way I don't have to discuss them with the wife!

I will post some pictures up later tonight.

I made the trek down to APS today, 138 miles down the M1 in the record time of 3hrs 15mins!

They installed the Bilstein PSS10 kit and the H & R arb's. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with both before and during the day, they dropped straight onto the car and had me on my way home for 1pm.

Initial thoughts are the car now stands better than it did on the standard suspension, I have not gone too low at the minute as I don't want problems with bottoming out on the ring. Ride quality is greatly improved over standard it no longer crashes into holes in the road, this could be because the setting currently are 5F 4R.

The arb's have made a big difference to the turn in of the car, this was one of my original issues as I felt the rear end needed to be a little more fluid and the front end needed to turn in sharper.

A couple of quick photos, I will do some better ones when the car is clean.

Lovely car, lovely seats, lovely colour, the black centres let the wheels down man, I'm afraid.

Yeh I understand that, but anthracite centres work better with diamond cut rims, the black is too harsh a contrast anyway, what do I know :sorry:

Looks great mate but please take the 'Ring sticker off. Unless a car has been on the track it doesn't deserve the sticker :no:

The car has done around 15 laps of the ring earlier this month, I actually have a season ticket and a proper car for the track though, the S3 is just a daily driver and a means of getting to the ring as the CSL lives in Germany during the summer.
