    Progress since my troubles with oxford audi

    As many of you know i had a nightmare with the above franchise trying to purchase an S3!

    Decided to stick with the brand and not to let the dealings with this franchise put me off.

    Since then i have had a nightmare trying to get accepted with other companies and nearly gave up but last week finally got a result and got a much better deal than i was offered on the first S3.

    The Car is also a much better spec, Its phantom black & black edition as the first one i tried to buy but with pan roof, cruise control, sat nav & half cream/black seats.

    Less miles and nearly 2K cheaper.

    Will be picked up at some point next week, Cant wait

    The franchise still have theirs for sale over a month later, he who laughs last laughs longer!

    Pics to follow upon collection...

    Finally got closure from this today

    Tracked down the manager of Audi Uk via email yesterday, got a call back today.

    Lets just say Head office not impressed, goodwill gesture in the post.

    So thank you and hats off to Audi Uk for listening and helping

    Now I wonder if Rs3 grill is compatible with parking sensors?!
