A little update. Yesterday I had the rear H&R ARB fitted. Quite simply it is incredible how the car drives now. I knew it would help from the previous reviews, but even I wasn't prepared for the performance difference.

 

The car turns in beautifully and sharply. It follows the contours of a bend to perfection and feel more grippy too. For the cost this has to be the best modification on the RS3 8V.

 

I also had Ferodo DS Performance pads fitted to the front, and the DS2500 on the rear (as there is no DS listed for the rears it seems). Will report back with review once bedded in, but so far they feel leagues better and much more bite.

So last week I received some new aftermarket RS3 car mats. I was going to go for red trim but went for the silver grey to match the upholstery.

Look really nice and around £50 for the super velour version. From Ambassadorcarmats.co.uk

Will see how they wear but I'm happy and better than the £350 that Audi wanted for their version.

Hey, just noticed you don't have your engine start button opposite the volume control in the centre console? 

 

Where is yours located?

Is keyless entry an option in the UK?

Keyless is available in the UK but I won't have it as cars can be stolen more easily that way.

Auto Watch Ghost FTW. Disk lok is too much hassle and yet another key.

Thanks for the heads up re: Ghost - I've sent their sales team an email as it looks an excellent deterrent!
