    OUt with the old in with the new

    Despite being slightly envious of all the recent S3 arrivals on the forum I was pleased to take delivery of my new A3 last week, with some sadness at the departure of my LCR, which had been a great car for 3 years :



    However my new A3 Sportback S-Line 170 PS TDI seems pretty quick if not in the same league as the LCR but certainly much better screwed together :





    My options were :

    Phantom Black Paint
    20 Spoke Split Rim wheels
    Arm rest
    Full leather interior
    Xenon headlights
    Heated seats
    iPod adapter

    Hopefull this will open a new chapter in my motoring experience, and cheaper fuel consumtion !!

    Cheers

    Very nice! (but then I would say that )

    I think the 20 spoke wheels suit the Sportback more than the standard 5 spokes and vice versa tbh.

    Yep, I agree, what sort of mpg are you getting ?

    As I undertand it yes, longer wheel base & marginal gain in the boot and in the space inside.

    Wheels look good but need serious effort to keep clean !!
