    Good times Spin! Can't remember previous posts, are you going for the Sportback again? From white to black, you're not the only one moving away from white

    Looking forward to your new pics when she arrives at the weekend.

    Nothing wrong with white I loved it and found it really easy to look after but I have always had a thing for Black cars and now N8 has offerred me such a special rate on detailing things are looking good !!

    The novelty never wears off I'm still like a kid at Xmas time and I still won't sleep well until it arrives on the driveway

    My perfect spec this time and what I originally ordered when my patience ran out and I took the Ibis from the showroom instead of waiting for a build last year,thankfully the Ibis was well discounted as a 'stock' carso it wasn't too painful a lesson to learn, my Ibis sold within 2 weeks so a popular choice, dealers happy and I'm very content.

    Plenty of pics will be posted on the day...

    I thought that would get your attention N8, " Special rates" !! LOL

    Regarding build dates etc, I was told the week before Xmas that the car was built and about to ship, expected arrival was estimated at 21st January and originally I was going to run the TTs until March and then take the S3 but as usual I was impatient and missing my extra doors with this poor weather.

    The TTs is a brilliant car and really gorgeous looking but from a driving perspective no better (or worse) than the S3 so at this moment in time the S3 ticks every box for me and my small family.

    I got what I consider to be a very good deal although the TTS interim ownership cost me a little more in depreciation than I expected but it's swings and roundabouts, the last S3 was a brilliant ownership prospect and cost me very little in the brief 10 months I owned it. I have always fancied owning a TTs and the fact that we have our second child due early Summer prompted me to do something a little impulsive and go for it, at least I can say I've done it and look back with no regrets.

    I am determined to keep the S3 a minimum of 3 years so I can get my moneys worth, heard that before though !!

    I was at Statllers last night until 8:30 having the pump and downpipe removed from the TTs, crikey it was cold !! Steve gave the usual excellent service though then I faced a 64 mile drive home in the snow and ice, gotta love quattro.

    I'll be back there within a couple of weeks to get the hardware fitted to the new one, be good to meet up and see an Ibis and phantom side by side.
