    I finally decided to order a new facelift s3 yesterday as i miss my pre facelift so much ... I really am uncertain on the lights and mirrors tbh but im sure it will be fine .

    Ive orderd
    Suzuka grey
    Black optics pack
    Factory tints
    Electric door mirrors
    Sunroof
    Bose
    Sat/nav
    6 Disk
    Adaptive xenons
    Black inlays
    Recaro bucket seats
    Luggage pack

    And now as standard is Flat bottom steering wheel and armrest .


    I have build date 46 and with the extra time of the exclusive colour i expect to see it mid december

    The magentic ride is getting great reviews on the TT, but on the S3 is deemed to be an expensive option that doesnt really give any advantage over standard. I didn't spec it for that reason also.

    Jo,
    I was only commenting on what experienced journos have been saying about the magentic ride on an S3. Seeing as it is such an expensive option, I would not spec it, in fact haven't.

    "The S3 is predictable and, although its ride is a touch abrupt, very forgiving, but it doesn’t have a genuine hot hatch’s hunger and sensitivity. From what we can tell on these smooth German roads, Magnetic Ride doesn’t make as much difference here as on the lighter TT, either..."

    The wait KILLED me...i ordered the model pre-facelift and after 1.5months wait was told it would be another 2 months as they held of my build for the new facelift, which i'm thankful for now!

    Mine arrived exactly one month ago, i believe one of the first to arrive in the UK;
    Black (really sets the chrome look mirrors off)
    satnav
    bose
    rain/light sensor
    ipod
    cruise
    gsm
    flat bottom steer

    I did receive a quote for 750 to chip it up to 310bhp, might wait to put some more mileage on before going down that route.

    Anyone else looked into performance mods for the 265 model?

    Just going back to the original point....Great spec you've gone for mate. Bet you're counting the hours!

    I'd be a bit wary of having the Gallardo on loan though. The S3 will feel like a derv after that!! lol. Is the Gallardo metallic orange or the orange/yellow pearl??

    Lovely selection of cars though. I've been lucky enough to drive a scuderia along with quite a few other Ferrari's. My mates dad owns a Ferrari service centre & body shop and he personally owns 12 (yes thats right, even has a custom built garage with 'prancing horse' stained glass windows in it, makes you sick). For sound, feel and passion there's just nothing like a Ferrari. For every day use the Lambo wins hands down but as a toy.... Ferrari's are just a special place to be.

    You're a lucky lucky boy my friend!! Enjoy the S3.
    A3 2.0T FSI Quattro S-Line, 3 Door, Avus Silver (special ed.)

    For Sale:

    S-Line gear knob, stick and gator.
