    Maybe consider electric lumbar support ....

    Is Sprint Blue now a standard colour or are you having to pay extra for this?

    Had a Sportback myself. Nice spec you've gone for and colour. Not many around in this colour. Only thing i would have changed would be to have gone for Black roof rails not the chrome. Think they would look better.

    Surely there shouldn't be any wondering! They should tell you exactly what you're getting otherwise the deal may be better or worse than you thought. Unless you have got a MEGA deal (which i know a lot of people are at the moment) i'd hope it would be the facelift model?

    Excellent spec.

    I would also add :
    Bose - big improvement over standard audio IMO
    Light & rain sensor pack.

    With the Light and Rain Sensor pack you can also have Auto-dimming on the outside door mirrors, which personally I find very useful when driving at night.

    They surely can't supply you with a car you haven't actually chosen if we're talking facelift as in totally different looking, i chose a car out of the brochure/showroom/configurator so if it don't look like that when i get it I will be upset!

    My guess would be around August when the Ingolstadt plant returns from it's annual shutdown and starts producing the next Model Year cars.

    I thought Sprint Blue was only available on the S3 unless you forked out over 2,000 on getting it on your A3?

    What do you class as a "stonking deal"? What price did you pay, if you don't mind me asking?

    spoke to the dealer today new face lifted A3s are available to order as from july
    thanks

    That sounds quite logical. The Ingolstadt closes for most of August and it's then that model changes usually happen ready for production to start at the end of August.

    Probably be some good deals around on pre-face lift version for the next few months.
