Hi Everyone


Few of you may know ive wanted a S3 for a good 18 months.
I started searching for one the start of September. When i originally started i just wanted a bog standard prefacelift S3.
After a fair bit of researching and trying a few out i decided that I wanted to go a bit more upmarket.


The spec I wanted was pretty ****ing hard to find so i made a competition of it, even though i had a long list of sites i was checking twice a day :lol:
http://www.corsa-c.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?469514-Find-me-a-new-car-and-win-a-cash-prize-!&highlight=


Finally the start of this week my dad comes running upstaurs with Laptop in hand with a S3 that had just been listed on the net and it had the perfect spec.
2 days later I managed to get down to the garage in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire (250mile one way) and eveyrthing ticked my boxes and put a deposit on it :)


Here she is:







The spec has every optional bar one or two !
  • Dolphin Grey (Rare as rocking horse **** on S3's)
  • 58 plate with 43K on the clock FASH
  • Audi Media system
  • Full Bose speaker system
  • Flat bottom steering wheel
  • Recaro wingback's - found mainly in the B7 RS4. These were a 3.5k optional when new ! The main reason i wanted this car.
  • DRL's
  • Loads of other **** i cant think of!
Im picking the car up on the 15th, should be a sweet journey! Driving the corsa now feels so so slow. But i will be keeping it as a daily :)


Thats all for now, Thanks for looking :)

Glad you found one with the options you wanted mate that's the first s3 I've seen in that colour looks really well
Cheers Joe ! There aren't many of them knocking about in Grey especially the facelift models !

Got the car home on saturday. What a machine.

Been doing some reasearch. Still cant see any tutorials on how to remove tge wiper and the motor. Im off work in a few weeks time so i will investigate then.<br /><br />Today i had a play and put these on the rear of the buckets. <br />
<br />But i wasnt happy with how thet sat as the curvuture on the rear of the seats caused alot of bubbles and creases :/ they were also on the large side :p<br />So there off and some smaller ones are getting made up :) <br /><br />Gave the car its first clean. <br />Therefore some generic snowfoam photos :)
<br />
<br />For some weird reason i didnt actually take any pictures after :p<br />But heres one of the corsa feeling sorry for itself
<br /><br />Thats it for now. I promise it will get more interesting :p<br/>
