    150 Days Gone.......

    Four to go......

    Before I finally collect my S3..

    My 147GTA was finally sold last weekend and I am now driving around in a borrowed 1992 1.4 Golf. The S3 is going to feel like a rocket ship.

    My S3 was ordered on the 30th January, built on the 26th of May (3 days before the facelift!) and turned up at the dealer on the 16th of June. I will collect it on the 3rd of July. The Dealer is retro-fitting Bluetooth for me for 300 inc VAT - I thought that was good value.

    Anyway, I just wanted to say that I appreciate all of the information imparted on this forum, it has made the last 5 months seem bearable.

    Oh, and I'm very excited!!!!

    My 147GTA experience can be summed up quite easily:

    Great Fun, Great Noise, Great Looks, Utterly Reliable and not too heavy on fuel but with shocking Dealer support and a few depreciation issues. (Even though I wasn't crazy enough to buy new)
