    Mystic Blue S3 Saloon

    Yeah loving it. Some times I do wish I went for the C63 purely for the looks but the C43 is just so useable and is still good fun to drive. Would definitely recommend

    Mystic Blue S3 Saloon

    Yeah I’ve had Audi’s and then the beemer so I thought I’d give Mercedes a go. No regrets so far. Absolutely love it. Feels a fair bit quicker than my S3 too which is nice

    No it’s just got the Sports Exhaust. Still sounds lovely just doesn’t rumble and crackle quite as much.

    Mystic Blue S3 Saloon

    Cold start of my new C43. Sounds mega on the initial cold start. So much fun to drive just playing with the exhaust notes on up and down shifts. Crackles and pops sound lovely on the downshifts.

    Thanks @SPIKE_S3 Will do! I’ll post some better pics up when I’ve collected it. Yeah it was a good car but very dull. Made me miss my S3 which wasn’t exactly the most exciting car ever performance wise. The BMW was quick enough when you wanted it to be but due to the lack of sound and it...

    Mystic Blue S3 Saloon

    I like both shapes but to be honest I didn’t think the coupe was worth spending an extra couple of grand on even though I probably do prefer it. I got this one for a bit of a steal as well so was too good to miss. Happy with the spec so hopefully a few tasteful mods will make it as sporty and...

    Mystic Blue S3 Saloon

    Well the BMW has gone now too... Ever since I sold the S3 I missed it. Was such a great looking car and so capable! That colour was just something else! Just bought a house and thought I’d treat myself to another new toy. I won’t be using it as a daily due to the miles I do so I have an old...

    I can see why they don’t use them now...too frustrating to use

    I didn’t think I was either to be fair but I am liking this

    Mystic Blue S3 Saloon

    Good jobs it’s white and they don’t show up so much!! Cheers I think it looked better in person with the kit etc. Yeah it’s nice. The paddles feel much better and they’re larger. Only thing I hate is the indicators. Never seem to cancel when I want

    Mystic Blue S3 Saloon

    It’s here. Drive is lovely. So smooth and power delivery is great with all that torque. Feels only marginally slower than the S3 but in every day driving you wouldn’t even notice to be honest. Looks great I think (other than all the swirls...)

    8v RS3 Spotters Thread

    Grey Facelift sportback in Bristol city centre. Looked lowered with aftermarket wheels. One of the nicest RS3s I’ve seen.

    I did look at the 335 but decided against it due to cost. Thank you. I still prefer my s3’s looks but both are great looking cars IMO

    Thanks! Sold it privately to a member on here. Will do :)

    Mystic Blue S3 Saloon

    Hope so! Yeah white wouldn’t be my first choice but easy maintenance and goes well with black details

    Mystic Blue S3 Saloon

    Yeah a must have for me or it would have been a no go. Makes it much more aggressive looking. Yeah I’ll have to be even more careful. Got 1 year warranty on the wheels to cover me

    Mystic Blue S3 Saloon

    Yeah the 1 and 2 don’t look quite right to me. Will do thanks

    Mystic Blue S3 Saloon

    My main saving is on the finance and insurance to be honest. Fuel I averaged 27-33mpg so hopefully get around 40mpg in the 330d. Anything lower powered and I’d get bored too quickly. I’ll see how I go though.
