    I hadn't seen the alloys in the flesh up until I picked up the car and was struck by how good the new alloys looked, they are much darker than they look in pictures i've seen, I prefer these over the old style ones imo. The car is a 2.0TDI 140 and it definitely shifts when you want it to

    got a few more pics but not many yet

    Does look the dogs B***ks
    I think the new wheels not only look better than the old ones, they'll be a damn site easier to clean.

    Can't wait for my A3 SB BE TDI 140 in Ice silver with black roof bars and other bits and bobs......only 8 months to go :--(((

    You get the one tail pipe with the 2.0TDI 140 (115 CO2 Start/Stop) I think all others are still twin pipes..

    Yeah I think all diesel engines, 1.2T, 1.4T and 1.6 have the single tailpipe?

    My sister picked up her A3 s-line 1.6TDI and that came with single tailpipe. But on the MY10 170TDI's comes with twin tailpipes, i don't really mind if they have indeed change it, but perfer twins.

    Feel sure that 140 turned single tailpipe/start/stop before the 170 , but i believe that the 170 is now single / start/stop . I'm sure that i read this somewhere - but not sure where .

    Have order A3 from Listers in Worcester - what a brilliant dealership, it put our Puegeot dealership in the shade. Listers are Premier division - would recommend them to anyone.

    Wanted to order Symphony radio with 6 CD changer - but unfortunately due to the Audi computer being 'down' by the time it was up and running again - we were too late - the build has already started. Listers are going to see if they can fit it at dealership, I hope this is possible - can anyone out there confirm whether they have had anything similar fitted at dealership when car has arrived? Thanks.

    New rotor style alloys, single tail pipe, new wing mirrors, gloss black "B" pillars - in 6 months time the "old" BE with twin tail pipes, matt black "B" pillars, etc....will probably look dated............ ;-)

    So you now need to pay the extra even though you had ordered it previously? 8 months is a *****. I'm still around 4 months away from mine.

    I've gone Ibis and happy with the choice!

    There is no way you should pay 20% - you ordered it before the rise. I would tell them to stick it, I'm sure another dealer would be happy for your business at 17.5%!!!!

    Yeah I ordered mine about a month and half ago and its due early December but if it isn't here until the new year i'll have to pay the 20% so I'm praying to say the least!

    I'd also go with White, have you seen the link above of Kman's new BE?! That will give you a good idea. Also if your thinking of cutting the cost of the paintwork that means you'll have to go with Brilliant Black which isn't as nice in my opinion, you would be better off with Ibis White

    I had the same deliemma between Black or White and decided on White. Think it looks awesome with the tints and black shiny bits! Can't wait to collect it!!

    I agree with Ash re: 20% VAT. If original date was this year and the delivery has now been delayed until next year, Audi would still have to charge the 20% VAT by law but I would ask for them to reduce the price before VAT so it comes out the same. I think that makes sense! . I am in a completely different business but if I delayed an order I would reduce the price in this way to keep the customer happy. At the end of the day it would only mean around a 2% hit.


    Cheers,

    I think Ibis White has the edge, it sets off the dark wheels, tints, black grill - should look good with black roof rails too....Anyone have pics of an MY11 A3 SB in white with black roof rails ??
    Black is good too... but I need a change from my previous black Audi
    Red looks good too...but I still think white gets the vote.

    The 170 has gone Stop/Start with the MY11 cars. If this also means a single tailpipe then I'll be a bit peeved when mine arrives but, as it also drastically reduces the CO2 rating, I'll live with it :D

    You don't pay for the car until just before you take delivery (aside from the deposit) and the dealers aren't allowed to let you pay earlier. The only way you'd get it at effectively 17.5% is if the dealer took the hit, effectively offering you a further 2% discount.

    Just change the back box with a 2009 BE, might need to swap the defuser too.

    thats very kind! i think ill take you up on that. what spec and colour is yours?



    Can we get an idea of delivery times in general. Please post when you ordered and when it was/will be delivered. Just so its super easy, write how many months it took next to it.

    I am ordering in TWO months now. Is it realistic to expect the car in March? 7 months?
