    To all who are collecting thier new cars soon. Hope all goes well and enjoy, look forward to seeing some pics.

    On the topic of index plates. The in thing in London is to park on yellow lines and put sticky tape over the front and rear plate, as well as the reg number on the road tax. This stops traffic warrdens giving out tickets.

    So you do everything the governement says to the letter do you? Never speed, never park on yellow lines, don't drink/drugs/smoke/fart in a public place? I obey the majority of the governments rules that I think are there for a reason, I don't blind follow, thats a dangerous habit IMO.

    No you don't, it's the coin tray instead as fitted on cars with the RNS-E.

    I presume this now means no A3s come with dash-mounted cup holders.

    I called into my dealers today to sort out the finance side of the deal with the Business Manager rather than it all be a mad panic tomorrow.

    He also spoke about the Audi Fixed-cost Maintenance and said that the price of this had come down recently. The offer we spoke about was for 3 years and cost 17.00 per month to cover all servicing with a further 3.00 per month to cover any parts or fair wear and tear, such as brake lining, batteries, exhaust etc.
    He also mentioned tyres for an extra 7.00 but I would rather stick to buying tyres at my local tyre depot that I have used for years and always get a good deal and excellent service

    Is anyone else taking up this deal on their new A3 or does anyone have any particular views on.

    Just as an aside - I called to the dealers some time ago on the same day as 'galewis' was collecting his new White A3 and the receptionist was wearing a white jumper. I commented about her being colour matched to the new car being collected. When I called in today she said, without any promting from me, 'Don't worry I will be colour matched to your new Silver car tomorrow, I think you'll like it'. So I'm now looking forward to tommorrow for two reasons!

    I'd certainly be quids in as I'm going through a set of fronts every year,at a cost of approx 210 per pair (fitted).
    I bet you my house they'd throw their toys out of the pram and increase my monthly costs though.

    My A4 was leased on a maintenance deal,but I didn't like the fact they told me which tyre shop to use,then the tyre shop told me they could only fit certain tyres.
    It got silly.
    I ended up with 4 different tyres on each wheel,even if they were the same actual brand.

    I think these agreements work for some people, and not for others. I don't know how many miles I will do next year, some years I do 5K other 25K, so its don't work for me. But if you have fixed miles, then maybe.

    On my existing A3 I've only fitted 2 new tyres in the 36k miles from new, but I agree with you that I want to retain the decision about what tyres and when I change them and who fits them. My new Sportback has Michelin tyres fitted.

    Could I just go a little off topic here and say that Neil (Nelson_Wilbury) is going to burst before tomorrow so they'll be a brand new A3 up for grabs. I've had him on MSN for about a month telling me how many 'sleeps' he has to go.

    Bless.

    Well, to all who are collecting a brand new A3 tomorrow or Friday or Saturday, have a great time and enjoy your new toy!

    Nesxt week apparently! Very Stupid, the car is getting delivered to my local dealers in leeds (about 3miles from my house), they are then delivering it to my company HQ 250miles away, where I will drive down the rental car i have ( who will charge a penalty for dropping it off down there), and then drive my car 250miles back!!!!

    Do they deliver it on a trailer btw?
    Any spelling/ grammatical errors are there purely to annoy!

    When I arrived her colleague was on reception but Tracy appeared from one of the offices wearing a black jumper and trousers, a very large Silver belt and a silver top hat and cane. She also said she had some other silver items on but she was not going to show me! We all had a good laugh.

    Well if there isn't a Mrs DaveR we all know who'll be getting a run in the new car then... talking of which, how's you're 6th A3 - do you still get a new car buzz?

  26. #65
    There is a Mrs DaveR and she was there as well. In fact she took a couple of photos at the time and was, of course, the first to get a ride in the new car.

    Yes I still get a buzz when I'm collecting a new car even though I was 21 when I collected my first brand new car and I'm now 59 and my new Sportback was my 16th.

    My new Sportback is great. A case of more of the same but 5-doors instead of 3 and with a few changes and extra 'goodies'. I will post a report/review in the next couple of days with some photos, assuming the weather stays dry long enough for me to give it a clean. I've only had it since Thursday and it filthy all ready.
