    Poor Pedro and his S3 saga

    This thread is dedicated to Pedro

    How it all began.....

    The car arrived at the dealers almost 3 weeks ago!!!! They have changed the Xenons to UK spec (these ones are for sale by the way...) and did not managed to get me a number plate yet!!!!!!!!

    3 weeks to get the bloody certificate of conformity from Audi UK and still not got it! If I was that competent in my job like this I was fired! The salesman is a nice guy and is not in his hands, another person is dealing with that, but, please get on with it!

    Because I ordered left hand drive I had to give a nice sum of money as a deposit (this was in end of November) and it is collecting interest for them...

    I'm starting to loose my patience... this Saturday I'll go there and see what is happening... Pissed off!!

    Just feed up of not getting the car and it's just an S3, nothing exotic... If I knew I had to wait I would have waited more for something more special... not a bloody A3! Anyway I know I will forget all this as soon as I get to drive it...

    If I get rid of the S3 I will place a deposit either on the new M3 or on an S5 instead but not worried about it... What happened is that all this fuss and lack of interest has put me off of my S3...

I don't think they are Recaros, at least I've not seen any inscription in the seats... But that doesn't mean they aren't. I think they are not but your Audi costumer service can find that out for you.

    I'm not too concerned about that...

    6 months seems excessive...

    Believe me! It has been hard seeing the car I wish to drive and not being able to do so!!! No need for this bloody thread though! I'm not looking for sympathy, just frustrated...

    Don't start taking the p***! No need for that, mate! It is bad as it is... Don't worry I will stop moaning and crying...
