    It's done!! Collect my new S3 on saturday morning! Excited!

    Hey guys, first of i just want to say thanks to the guys on here that helped with all the info i needed!

    Anyway i will be a first time Audi owner on saturday! 58 plate S3

    After 2-3 months of searching lol, just a few questions - it's had it's spark plugs/Haldex done at 46k and now got 64k on the clock but no mention of the cambelt/timing belt being done.

    Do the post 2008 Audi's have a timing belt? the guy at the dealership doesn't know but said to me "If it's due we'll do it"

    Beyond excited!

    Great choice mate! Is it manual or S-tronic? Timing belt I think is every 60-80k but dont hold me to that.
    Be patient. English is tough.

    Now:

    As said, get some pictures up and we can start spending your money

    If the dealership are saying they'll do it, get it done by them as it'll save you a good £400ish.

    Also, give S3Alex's thread a read. That car is an absolute weapon!

    Would be awesome. Guy said he's going to ring Audi and find out if it's due so i guess it depends on what they say to him.. but at least i know it needs to be done now

    Oh if its a indy garage, make sure the belt is done properly, in other words, cams locked of etc, mine was done when bought the sb for missus & 2 years later with issue discovered, was installed badly & fixed number of issues, unreal how different the car was after that job done as per the book.

    Yeh, it's not the cheapest thing to do, and I need mine doing very soon.

    When I first got my A3, I was just glad to have such a nice car, then I found this site. Fast forward around 8 months and I've done all the bits in my sig haha.

    It is a Indy garage, but quite a big one so i'd assume they'd do it right but thanks for the heads up on that NHN. I'll make sure to check.

    I think that's exactly whats going to happen to me! from the list you have, definitely want to get the OEM LED number plate lights (maybe off A5) and the interior LED light pack done mate!

    My car is a 57 plate S3 now with 42k on the clock when i asked Audi and AMD Essex they both said 5 years old or 50k so i had mine done, from memory Audi was around £400 - £500 and AMD essex charged me £324 i think and included the water pump

    Make sure you get some pics up and as the others have said get ready to open your pockets !
