    Thanks for the replys and the Salesman's names which will come in handy! Hopefully get 10% minimum. There seems to be huge differences in options prices, Ł700 for the bucket seets is a bargain from Edinburgh! Does adding more etras usually mean bigger discounts or does it just depend on whether or not the saleman is in a good mood the day you go in??!

    pity it's in dutch and not full BE, but does whet the appetite for those who have their orders pending, especially in Ibis White

    Hi all. Been lurking for a while while I decided what my next car was going to be. Finally ordered a Misano red 2.0d Sportback BE yesterday. It was in stock, so had to have the options already specced which were the i-pod dock (I'm the only person in the world without an i-pod ) and the GSM phone prep.

    Got a good deal. Just under Ł4000 off list and first service for free. (As well as a good p/x offer)

    The GSM phone system apparently gives bluetooth and access through the steering wheel controls. However, the salesman stated that a cradle for my specific phone is available for......Ł100. Are there any cheaper options available anywhere?

    Went to glasgow Audi yesterday at Braehead and so far very disapointed! Spec of car ( S3 Sb BE) was arround 32.5K and salesman said i'd be doing very well if i got a 1K discount and also said that i would be dissapointed with what they;d offer me for my 57 plate 140 s-line SB with a few extras. He wouldnt commit to a price and asked if i could get back to him after i had a deal on the table from Aberdeen Audi. He also did not believe that Edinburgh Audi or any other Audi dealer could be giving anything like 10% discount. Told me that they have just been told by the big boss to try not to give discount!! Is this just a load of bull or are they trying to clamp down on deals??! Oh and they have just put prices up 1% on top of the 2.5% vat increase!!

    dealers will fleece you and say no deals for ages, just walk away.

    if he cannot commit to a price you cannot commit to buying it.

    I hate car dealers, cars are not selling in big numbers dealers are empty.

    why get back to him after the aberdeen deal ? tell him to pi55 off.
    don't even get into talks about the trade in, just say you want best price on a new car, and once the price has been agreed then move onto what they would give you for yours.

    do it this way not the dealers way.

    do it their way and they will take 10k off you
    3k on the new car
    3k on your old car
    3k on the finance.

    it never used to be like this , but these days greed has got the better of them.

    Remslie, my advice is to shop around. I had a tough time trying to buy an S3, its taken 3 months of looking every day! BUT i put a deposit down yesterday on an SB S3 well chuffed . I would give Jamie a call at Liverpool Audi, he was incredibly helpful and I got a cracking deal. Good money for my A3 SB against a demonstrator. I had tried a handful of Audi dealers in the last 3 months, all being very hard work but my experience so far with Liverpool has been first class. If you need any more details please PM me.

    Sorry to hear about Lomond offering a p*sh deal. I am looking to order soon for a S3 SP BE and Lomond are my nearest dealer, where i bought my current car from as well. My proposed spec at the moment is looking pretty expensive, so with what you have said here I don't hold out much hope of managing to get a good deal from them. You would think that at the moment they would be biting your hand off to strike a deal, as the VAT rise will not bode well for the first quarter of the year.
    How was your offer at Aberdeen Audi ?

    Three weeks ago, I went into my local dealer and was offered a crap p/x and Ł500 off the list price. I said 'no thanks' and walked away, after leaving my details.

    Three days ago, I ordered my sportback BE, with four grand off, a good p/x and the first service for free. Apparently, december was a good month for Audi because of the VAT rise in january. Towards the end of the year, Audi UK are supposed to have told the dealer network to stop taking new car orders and wait till january. I'd say you should leave your details, wait a week or two till any 'delayed' deals are done and then see what they say.

    There are deals available if you've got the patience.

    Just been told by Aberdeen Audi that my car build week number is week 9. The girl said I should take delivery of my car mid-end of March. I ordered my car on the 12th of December. Has anyone else got a delivery date for their cars?

    I ordered an S3 BE Sportback in Aberdeen on 2nd December and was told it is week 4 so will be available on 1st March.

    I've gone for Phantom Black. Anyone else in Aberdeen waiting for a black one?

    Just found these pics whilst searching for wheel ideas for my car ... I would suggest this is what a 3-door Ibis white S3 Black Edition (with buckets!) will look like:

    I posted this the in the BE thread but I'll chime in here too.

    Just placed my order today for the following spec -

    S3 Quattro Sportback Black Edition
    S-Tronic
    Ibis White
    Black ZM Pearl Leather/Alcantara Seats
    Matt Brushed Aluminium Inlays
    Comfort Package (Rear Parking, Cruise Control, Light & Rain Pack)
    Technology Package (Sat Nav, Bluetooth, AMI)
    Interior Light Pack
    Luggage Pack
    Non Smoking Pack
    Electric Lumber
    Adaptive Headlights
    Folding Mirrors

    I'm undecided about the Open Sky roof though. Sometimes I look at pictures of the car and think it looks nice but then I think is it worth the money? Anyone got any comments on it, is it worth it??

    I've spent weeks trawling around dealers to find a good deal. SOme just say the price is the price and if you want it you'll pay it, others have offered 2, 3 and maybe 4% but it's been a real struggle to find more. Aberdeen were good on price but for me a long way to go. Thankfully found a helpful dealer a little closer to the deed has been done.

    A4 3.0 TDi S-Line Quattro, 7 Speed S-Tronic, Quartz Grey, 19" Twin Spoke Alloys, Alcantara with Silver Stitching & Heating, Nav High, B & O, AMI, DAB, Parking Advanced & Rear View Camera, Advanced Keyless Entry, LED Interior Light Pack, Hill Hold Assist, Heated Electric Folding Mirrors, Through Load.

    Alright mate, confirmed build week 5 for the S3 BE. Should expect delivery 1st/2nd week March apparently out of Aberdeen Audi. Really looking forward to it now. In the envious position of being in a 2008 S3 already, but can't wait for my new, "un-owned one". We do need to sort a local meet, it'll be rude not to.
