    Just ordered a 170 TDI sportback BE through Lex and the car has a delivery date of 15th Jan (knew it too a while but thats a long time!) but thats not the worst of it, i had to give my 140TDI sportback S Line back because i was doing too many miles outside of the lease. So i am now lumbered with a... 1.8 TDCi Mondeo! 3 months of boredom to go

    Wheel/Spring change?

    Has anyone put different wheels or springs on their black edition?
    I want to change mine but also want to see what anyone else's look like.

    Im thinking 19" but not 100% sure..

    Got a delivery date today from Lex....

    24th November! WHOOOHOOOO!!

    Apparently she is parked at the dock waiting a shipment across to a dealer (trying to find out which one they are usin).

    My best mate has an Ibis white one coming the same date too (same company and both started same time) so should be good to have them both delivered at the same time. He thinks Ive blagged Sat Nav though! Gonna have to explain I meant Garmin!

    Nearly at the end of the Insignia nightmare!!!!!!

    Looking well - tcardio

    where did you source your wheels?

    I'm assuming that they're 19's replicas? A lot of the reps look pants due to them not having much of a dish to them, your's look as close to the originals as I have seen

    My Black Edition 3 door 140 Tdi is built and 'awaiting ship' in germany - it went to awaiting ship on friday - does anyone know how long it will take to get on a ship and too my dealer?

    Then how long does it take to PDI it?


    For instance would it be ready end of next week? I can't imagine it will take too long to get over here?

    I'm so excited. It will be 3 weeks ahead of schedule!

    My Due date is still next Tuesday - two of them being delivered to the office at the same time is the plan - My Misano Red and my best mates Ibis White. Pair of girls, we both cant wait. Still yet to see another Red one on the road so this is totally based on the photo on this very Thread!

    Update - 4th December. They have not hit the three dates Ive been given yet so Im not holding my breath.

    Apparently because its two cars the dealer needs to get both cleared from two different pounds on the same day and this is proving harder then thought.

    Brilliant!

    In the AutoGlym advice leaflet it mentions that the swirls/scratches comes more from Automatic roller car washes than manual so long as you keep using loads of clean water and decent wax products it should be fine- I had a black A3 for 3 years, avoided the roller car washes and finish stayed good. Hope that helps.

    Whooooooooooohooooooooooooo!!!! 8.30am this morning, the delivery truck arrived with an Ibis White Sportsback, and my Misano Red Sportsback......both looking very fresh.

    Only had a 10 min drive at lunch time, so not much to report back on yet.

    I'll take some photos tommorrow and get them uploaded.

    4 month 2 weeks from order to deliver and the guy from Audi said that has now increased so I was "lucky".....!!

    They do look good especially in the lighter colors, wish I would have ordered my 2009 2.0T Monza Silver with it, here was my 2007 3.2Q





    Nice brake upgrade (we get 312mm vented fronts and 286mm solid rears on all a3's in the US)

    S3 brakes fitted all around
