    One month to go!

    All

    Just wondered how many people are in the same situation as me, one month till the magic day when I finally get my hands on my S3!!!

    Anyone know any good ways to pass the time, apart from looking at pictures, info, etc..

    COME ON MARCH 1ST!!

    After looking outside, I'd hibernate for a month! I know the situation you're in, it might turn up early, I'm assuming you want the new 08 plate. Then pop down to the dealers to see it in it's transit wrappers!

    Hi John

    I see you have the DVD Sat Nav - is it as good as it looks on the manuals etc and easy to go between cd/IPOD/radio/phone?

    I'm due to get mine next week, I think.
    Registration allocated, awaiting tax disc and lease papers to be signed.
    Couldn't give a monkeys about '08 plate, as it's not my car and I'll be putting my own plate on.
    Quite timely, seeing as one of my A3 wheel bearings is f*cked and the dealer is unable/unwilling to fix it.

    It's a very nice addition to the car, very easy to use too. Im afraid it's CD OR iPod unless you buy one of the dension products which allows you to use both. What spec is your car??

    Pass the time while waiting? ................ come for a run with me. Second thoughts best not as it may make the wait worse!

    I know what you mean though ticking every day off the calender. It was nice though when the dealer phoned me 2 weeks earlier than expected and with an opening statement of " hello, do you want to collect your car the day after tomorrow!". Only had mine a few months but still enjoy driving it as though it was the first day.
