    When you're waiting for an S3 you seem to just just day dream every day about the first time you get in it, the first time you drive it....

    And then the day finally arrives and you take the long journey to the dealership. And because they know you're coming they move it to the front of the forecourt and the first time you see it you can't believe that it's yours!

    One of the best days ever

    When I bought my A3 cabriolet back in September last year my car was in a specially lit area with a silver sheet over it and I had the pleasure of un-vailing it (or should I say my daughter did)

    Very rememberable occasion

    Not in Australia. However, we do get a bunch of other stuff standard, such as Bose stereo, leather seats, rear parking sensors and probably a few other bits and pieces. I'm not sure of the exact "base" spec for UK market.

    I think this is the quickest route of the three the shipping company uses, so that's a bit of a win.



    Edit: My car will be docking at Port Kembla. It then sits in compound for a week or two before customs releases the vehicle to Audi Australia and it takes a further two weeks from then.

    Mid-August is looking like the date I guess.

    We also get Bluetooth phone prep, auto lights/wipers.

    Our list price for the 3dr is AU$66,500, which is around 32K ... how does that compare?

    our list price for the basic model with metallic paint i think is approx 28k inc delivery, tax etc so maybe we did get a decent deal after all.
    i had a call from Audi today to see it has now been built. should be shipped over within the next 10 days, then 3 days to be checked over etc here and then ready to collect so approx 2 - 2.5 weeks.

    It was arsey timing, that's all. We were at that vantage point for about 30 minutes or so and that car looked to be the only one that could be my S3. Then when I got home and checked the WW tracking website the times were pretty consistent. Even if it isn't actually my car, I'm claiming it as mine, haha.

    Can't be that many Ibis White S3s, with black optics and sunroof that were unloaded today.

    Now, about that life I am supposed to have.
