Car looks good Dave, them wheels do suit a silver A3 imo
One thing I was not aware of with my new car was the sports seats colouring. I ordered Black/silver (KY) but I was not really aware that the panels in the seat would be a silver colour similar to the picture on page 43 of the current Pricing and Specification brochure but where there is orange on those seats there is silver on mine. I really like it and it does stop the interior being all black.
I went out for a drive through the lanes this evening and whilst the power of the 184 feels very similar to my 170 at the moment, the quattro is amazing even with standard and not sport suspension and the car is so much more comfortable than the S-Line demonstrators I had out on test drives.
Definitely the best possible set-up for me.
The other thing that makes the ride pleasant is the tyres. On my previous 170 I had Hankook Ventus S1 Evo tyres and these very quiet and gave excellent grip. The other tyres I've heard good reports about, especially noise wise, were Dunlop Sport MAXX RT and those are the tyres fitted to my new car so I'm well pleased.
My build week was meant to be 13 but phoned dealer at the end of BW12 and it was at Emden awaiting shipping. Finally arrives at dealers on Monday and will pick it up on Tuesday 15th .... At last :rockwoot:
Had call from dealer earlier - it's made it onto a ship. With a following wind, I may still collect it next week...
I'm collecting mine on Monday!! 2 more sleeps!
Mines is off the shop and had finally hit uk soil!
Personally I much prefer my Black/silver option to the all Black option.
I think this could be the ship with my car on it:
AFRICAN HIGHWAY - Vehicles carrier: current position and details | IMO 8100985, MMSI 353633000, Callsign 3EOD8 | Registered in Panama - AIS Marine Traffic
After being told from my dealer that my car could would be on last Fridays ship. My dealer just phoned this morning to tell me it's still sitting in Germany for some reason. Even he doesn't know what going on....
When I went for the lighter interior I had the salesman showing me a just delivered car because that was the only one he could find with it at the dealership. I can't go on pictures alone for the above reason
BW12 - A3 SB Sport, S-Tronic, Brilliant Black, Comfort Pack, Interior Light Pack, Heated Seats and Privacy Glass - pick it up 11am tomorrow :-)
Mine was also build week 12 my s3 is still sitting at Emden! :( not even my dealer understands why it's taking so long...
Car arrived in Sheerness on the weekend/Monday! (Vessel name: Emden for those who are interested)
Customer services said it can 2 ****ing weeks to get to me though... Anybody got a car that has come from Sheerness and can give me a real life estimate?
My dealer said that my car has actually already been given a transport order and sent me a screenshot of my order on their system which was pretty cool.
Black Styling Pack
Comfort Pack + Adaptive Cruise Control
Audi Sound System
Private plate's going on there on day one too - S3 JUR (My name is Jordan, so I was pretty lucky to find that I think!)
