    New User - Waiting For S3 To Arrive

    Hi All,

    I thought i'd introduce myself, I've recently ordered an S3 in Meteor Grey, delivery time is early December and it's going to be a painful wait!

    I'm hoping i've made the right choice, but i guess only time will tell!

    Hi mate,

    I'm 4 weeks into my wait for mine, due in Oct/Nov!! Just think, Xmas always comes up fast from here so the wait won't be too long!

    What's your spec?!

    Yes, an early Christmas present!

    Well, as I mentioned above its Meteor Grey, and i've gone for a manual. Didn't spec many options, but those I did are;

    Bluetooth Handsfree
    Ipod Connection
    Bose
    Silver/Black Silk Nappa Leather Seats
    Lugguge pack
    Lighting Pack

    I ummed and ahhh'd about the Sat Nav option, or I think from reading on here many refer to it as RNS-e? I may look to retrofit it at a later stage, haven't decided yet.

    Great choice mate. It'll be the longest wait ever!

    Did you have an A3 before? I noticed your join date.

    i was surprised to find out I was already a member, I did have a couple of A4s and have currently got an A5, but I dont remember ever signing up, and I dont think I made any posts.

    Still, I'm here for real this time round! Call it a 2 and half year probation period!

    Not for the Audis I didn't, they were older battered up cars that I used to get me about and to the station etc, had a Porker for a while so joined a forum then, and have been running around in an old E30 BMW for a bit too so have been on a relevant forum there.

    But, new times and new forum!

    Definately good choice.

    Your delivery date might come forward - we were told 21 September but collected S3 Sportback on the 1st.

    Time flies - so does the car

    Did they give you a reason?!

    Congrats on the car, still annoys me when people are having to tick and pay for options like Ipod and bluetooth. Fiat Pandas have both of these as standard FFS!

    I know it's a bit weird really, but I guess all to do with reaching a price point for respective markets.

    iPod connectivity isn't standard here, but for the S3s, Bluetooth is.

    Oh, congrats to the OP as well. I've just completed a March-August wait for my car, so I know what is ahead of you. The good thing is the pain of waiting is forgotten very quickly once your car is in your hands.
