Well, when i bought my S3, the owner said it had been parked under a tree. Wasn't bad but you could see signs on the roof.
I could have just had the roof painted (or tried mopping it), but i had something bigger planned!

IBIS White!

Not quite finished but you get the jist!

Looks brilliant! I was thinking IBIS white for mine. Did you get the whole engine bay done or just the inside of the wings?

Im torn between:
Ibis White
Solar Orange
or
Sepang Blue (Audi R8)

Pushing the limits..
looks nice mate, i think black paint the audi signs on the boot and front grill black possibly with the wheels black would look great!

Looks ace mate!

Moon is made of green cheese
That looks amazing mate, great job especially with the matching interior!

Shane is right you need to show that bay some love! A few coats of 303 Aerospace protectant will have that looking factory fresh!

my neighbour has an S5 in sepang blue and every time i see our cars together i think that the S3 would look sweet in that colour!

Looks nice, but my favourite colour for 8L s3's still has to be Avus Silver.

Colours trend over years, but White is a great colour in my opinion! Looks good in pictures mate

Thanks for the comments.
Its not quite finished yet, just couldn't help getting pictures of it.
All the black plastics will get a coat of black, as with the wheels.
The badges need to go back on the rear, and it does need a damn good clean!

Engine bay isn't fully done, just what you can see.

Looks great. Get those rims done in Anthracite & it'll look fantastic.

Stunning really looks good in white, as above it would have been a great colour choice if you could have it made that way.

Very nice buddy. Ibis white IMO is the best colour to have.......and yes I am bias as mine is the same.

Defo worth the wait :)
Stunning mate, excellent job done there.

What colour was it originally?

Gunmetal/anthracite wheels on that would look spot on and a quick detail in the bay and a clean up of the interior and you are well on your way mate.

Sepang Blue just about pips Ibis white for me.... I wouldn't even consider Solar Orange.

Misano Red is a hot colour too
