Hi, bought a RS3 8P 2 months ago, 30k miles 2 owners, I did want buckets but decided lower miles were more important. Surprised how well it Handles with all the understeer horror stories on YouTube, currently own a E46 M3 in estoril blue, which drives totally different, but taking nothing away from the Audi it's a great piece of kit.

Looks like one of the previous owners decided against the black pack grille and changed it for the alu grille as the rest of your other bits are colour coded (door handles, rear bumper lip, wing side triangle). Looks like a nice clean example. My car came with comforts too but the wingbacks do come available every now and then but expect to pay a premium (I know I did) but they do transform the car.

Thx Jay, I will be keeping a look out for seats for sure, just fitted a panel filter, 2nd decats removed, was going to fit red stuff pads, but took you guys advice and bought mintex premier pads front and back, there's a lot more pedal feel now.

Don’t fancy a 034 carbon intake?

I too also love the Misano Red RS3's  :up_it:  But also use to own one with a similar outside spec -

Another Misano / silver pack here, but my preference of the diamond cut titanium wheels.

Did contemplate a black set as winters, but never bothered.

A few mods added, Airtec intercooler, secondary cats removed, pipercross panel filter, 034 rear roll bar, powerflex transmittion mount and dogbone, still have anti lift kit to fit and just back from Revo stage 1 map, feels much better all round.
