    Collected our A3 tonight

    Some of you may have seen my other posts asking questions about the A3. Well tonight we collected an A3 to replace my wife's Ibiza and I have to admit I'm a little jealous, especially of all the toys.

    It's a 53 plate dolphin grey 2.0 TDI Sport, extras include xenons and headlight washers, auto lights, auto wipers, auto dimming rear view mirror, Symphony II stereo, interior light pack, cruise control, rear sunblind and leather/alcantara seats. It also has a nokia bluetooth kit but I expect this will be swapped for an OEM one in the near future.

    So far I'm very impressed with the quality of the interior and how it drives, it really does feel like a new car despite being over 3yrs old.

    Auto wipers on a 53 plate? Don't think so - they didn't offer it back then.

    Other than that - enjoy

    Yeah, my mistake, wasn't advertised with them, I just assumed they came with the other auto stuff.

    Auto wipers were first listed in the June 2004 price list.

    Can't wait to see it Eddy. We really ought to meet up again sooner rather than later. Obviously you won't be driving though

    So dare I ask? Any 'plans' for the car...?

    Yeah, we'll definitely have a mini meet sometime soon, Josh can bring his Audi too!

    Plans aren't too major; Sat Nav and phatnoise are definitely getting done, other than that maybe a remap and different wheels.

    EDIT - Louise wants some ali pedals too.

    You know Josh is doing his CBT 'crash' course as we speak? Bloody idiot lol!

    Get in touch with Neil on www.audi-accessories.co.uk for your new bits and bobs. In fact, pass the laptop over to Louise and let her browse the site

    We're very pleased, as soon as we get the Ibiza sold then we'll spend a bit of money on the A3 starting with sat nav.
