    Birdman's 2017 S3 Technik - OTHRBABE #3

    Hey AZ,

    For those who hadn't heard, I lost my 16' S3 of 6 months to a taxi who u-turned across 3 lanes of traffic. Blessing in disguise I suppose as my insurance pays out full MSRP within the first 3 years in the event of a total loss, so I ordered a new one from factory. Decided to go with a little bit more tech, a little bit nicer colour, a little bit more awesome. Three months of physiotherapy and waiting later, here we go:

    2017 Audi S3 Technik
    Daytona Grey Pearl, Black Interior

    Technology Package
    Super Sport Seats
    Black Optics
    Red Calipers
    Advanced Handling

    Coming up, I have virtually all the mods from the last car, including the exhaust, spacers, and dash cam, plus I've ordered the switch path conversion kit from AWE, springs from 034, and I'll run the OEM forged wheels until I'm ready to grab a new set of shoes. Some pics from delivery day, getting ceramic pro done this weekend and should throw all the mods on in one fell swoop in the next two weeks. Enjoy!

    Unlike the US market, there is only 1 type of 19" for the S3 in Canada, regardless of whether you have black optics or not. You can even get the standard 18" with black optics in Canada.

    Welcome to the club from another '17 Daytona / Black Optic / Technik owner. Seems to be one of the most common configurations.

    Your photos look great! I haven't been able to take any that capture the Pearl effect near as well.

    We must have the worst cab drivers anywhere - actually in the world. These douches will simply pull out in front or do a u-turn without warning and they still think they have the right of way!

    Looks sweet; that glass look man, maybe I should have gone with opti-coat instead of the Sharkskin finish.

    Beautiful car! So glad you recovered from your injuries and were taken care of by your insurance company - what a blessing!
    A few light mods...

    Thanks! It wasn't all roses, they f***ed me on the $4000 it cost for the PPF and ceramic pro because it wasn't on the bill of sale. I guess it's like Chinese food: you dim sum you lose some.

    damn, glad you're okay. I usually don't get upset about anything, but how casually folks take driving pisses me off. I've never seen daytona grey pearl look so good!

    Thanks! Damn cabbies don't even look.

    Glad you like the photos! Almost all photos I take are shot with an iPhone 7 Plus and edited in Lightroom mobile.
