    My S3 is on the boat!! Lugagge Pack??

    Hello! Just had a phone from the stealer saying that my S3 is on the boat to the UK so mid March I should be driving it!!!

    One question for you. I didnot specify the luggage pack when ordered and just know my interest in ski has just rised!! Can I retrofit the luggage pack, how can I carry my skis without roofrails and bars?

    The Luggage Pack consists of a large net that fixes to fittings in the boot and a 12v power socket in the boot.

    Don't think it will help with carrying skis. The Through-Load System option is the one for skis - consists of a large bag type unit which goes from the boot through into the rear seat with a fold down centre arm-rest. It is listed as an option for the S3 but not sure how easy it would be to retro-fit.

    Full description is: 'Through-load system - Holds skis and snowboards and can be removed for transporting long objects. Includes rear centre armrest with two cup holders' Option cost: 175.00

    That's what I mean!!! I guess only a new back seat would do... so forget it I just have to fold my back seats if I want to take them, it is not a pain, but limits my passenger uptake... (that's not bad for fuel economy, though..)

    Retrofitting the through-load system will mean replacing the back seat, or at least the two-thirds of it that includes the centre section - that's going to be pricey!

    It basically allows you to poke long things through the hole without folding down one side of the seats and losing passenger space.

    You could always just cut a hole in the back of the seat behind the armrest!

    Strange, because the option in the Price List and Specification Guide says it 'Holds skis and showboards and can be removed for transporting long objects'. It even shows a photo of the bag in use.

    Click HERE to the page in the parts catalogue showing where it's stored.

    It can take longer to sort the tax etc out that prepare the car. Maximum of a couple of hours to actually clean, PDI and fit plates etc.

    if you click HERE you will find a copy of the latest Audi Pricing and Specification Guide for the A3 range. On page 43 is the description of the Through-Load System and there is a picture in the centre at the bottom of the page.

    You should get a seperate bag for your ski's / snowboard, unlike the cabriolet that has it built in.

    Hope that helps.

    It works OK from mine.

    If you go into the Audi UK website at www.audi.co.uk, go to the A3 pages and click on Download Brochure you can get the same brochure from there.
