    That is fantastic news!

    Mine will be at the dealers next Wednesday, well considering it is at Sheerness and Maidstone (dealer) isn't exactly a million miles away that is a hell of a long time to get from A - B.

    Anyway should be ready for Saturday 26th as can't pick up during the week due to work.

    My theory is that as the A3 is doing so well in other countries, with far better exchange rates than GBP, Audi are shipping there in preference (as production is at full capacity) When do UK sell most cars ?? March and Sept (new plates !!)

    If you leave the switch on Auto-Lights or DRL (if you don't have Auto lights) poistion they will stay on. To switch them off you need switch to off poistion. I always leave mine Auto-on looks cooler!, but i have seen few people who drive with them off.

    Off topic but I've just fitted my S3 pedals, tricky job but only takes 15 minutes max. It looks brilliant and freshens the interior up, if you have a spare 109 do it

    Rather you didn't tell me that, even more of a reason to change them though. It changes the interior massively for me! All that's left for the interior is to put in my S3 mats with silver piping now. Leave that until I give the car a full detail though.

    Did you have difficulty in pulling the bottom plugs away?

    Yeh that part was a bit of a bugger that was the only difficult part really. Managed to get a screw driver underneath and gave it a good tug and it popped out.

    Glad it wasn't just me, didn't want to pull too hard, felt like something was going to snap

    Interesting... My ETA delivery has been brought forward by 26 days, although no build slot has been confirmed yet. To be honest, I'm not going to get excited until it is delivered to my house - then I'll believe it.

    I was told when I ordered the car that certain suppliers had gone bust, which has given rise to all the delays. Maybe certain options bring their own delays whilst new suppliers tool up. My car is pretty bog standard, just cruise control added.

    Could only get there once the dealers was closed and couldn't find it, also tried their yard where they keep the new cars but heavy security and couldn't see it through the fence but there is 100's of cars in there so clutching at straws really.

    Oh well only 69.5 hours to go.

    The delivery dates are bouncing round more than Pammies fake lovebags!!

    I so wish my original May delivery date will happen, but I'm not holding my breath. Who knows may even end up with a 61 plate at this rate. Already pushed back to June delivery to Manchester Audi although I'm not supposed to know where it's been ordered by the lease company.
    Was an Audi S3, Pre-Facelift 210 bhp, Security Tints, Standard spec, simple sweet and to the point.

    Currently a Golf GT TDi 170 DSG in Pearlescent Black with every conceivable extra available - company car


    From June 2011 - Audi A3 Sportback Black Edition 140 tdi (company car) with DSG gearbox, Technology Pack + AMI, Storage Pack, Open Sky Roof System, Comfort Pack, Luggage Pack and Interior Light pack. Oh and it's Monza Silver. Can't wait

    Twin exhausts - single exhausts - It may look better with twin pipes but basically the 170bhp was nearly twice the cost per month. I personally didn't want to spend the same cost as having two 140 bhp A3's just for a twin exhaust and a few extra bhp. Yes it looks better - Yes it goes faster.. But I've got a nice new A3 SB BE with a tidy sum in my pay packet - smiles all round

    I basically used the same stuff as "Diamond" (his is Ibis White) mines Brilliant Black. If you go back through this thread you will see the list of stuff used.. I'm totally converted to Chemical Guys EZ Glaze with Acrylic Shine II. Build up a good layer of quality wax ontop...
