I cannot believe how lucky I am to have this car at 24. The amount of heads it turns is unreal. I hope that those of you waiting for your A3's to arrive get them soon!!
Bit of a long shot, but has anyone got / seen a photo of :
misano red, 3 door s line with panoramic sun roof & privacy glass (ideally with out roof rails)
Like I said a long shot !!!
Closest I can find on the inter web is a promo photo from above of 5 door with rails.
I have seen a glacier white at a dealer (salesmans own car) with this set up and was the best looking a3 I've seen so far.
Best I can do is a quick photoshop render, but the sunroof doesn't really come out too accurate!
Fragup, Checkout Norwich Audi used A3 cars. They have an example of just what you want.
I had completely ruled out white at the start as i drive a white company van for work, and wanted something stand out different,
but people keep putting photos of cracking looking glacier whites up and its not helping. still the best looking A3 I've seen was in glacier white with privacy glass and pano (black rails look good as well)
I dabbled with black again as last 2 cars! And Daytona as well ! Normally I decide instantly and that's it, but have had to wait 3 months to order and have had to much time to think, but can order this month !
Like you, I struggled for weeks trying to decide on a colour. Every time someone posted pics of their car I thought that was the colour to go for (except for beluga brown), but then I decided to stick with my first choice of Glacier White and to be honest it does look good.
If you look at my avatar you will see that my previous A3 was in Misano Red and that was also a cracking colour for the A3 so clearly you've got good taste as well.
Finally managed to get some snaps of my 1.8tfsi SB which I collected on Monday.

Picking up my 3dr Misano Red S Line in 4hrs, this morning is really dragging! I'm off to clean the bathroom and do some hoovering to pass the time!
Wow, that's some saving you have made, £7k!! Awesome, I didn't realise such savings could be made, enjoy.
greetings from Germany! I am on a train and just happened to pass through Ingolstadt and saw not just one but two massive trains loaded up with brand new Audis. I took a quick picture, which I thought I would post here since there is a chance your new A3 might just be in there somewhere. No idea why the picture is showing up upside down...I tried twice and it did the same thing both times, and I'm on an iPhone so I can't really do anything about it. Anyway, I promise that the sky and the earth are in the same place in Germany that you are used to, and all your pretty new cars are still shiny side up...
I popped into the Audi garage to have someone look at my car for a trade-in valuation, and look what I spotted from about 50 yards away:

My name's in the windscreen, so it's definitely mine, but it was pretty obvious, as it was the only red car in the lot!
1st September pickup, but I plan to have a proper look around it in the coming week anyway. :)
Picked up my new A3 three weeks ago but only had the chance to drive it yesterday, due to a holiday.. the car is an absolute joy to drive and use, every little detail is designed to perfection and works like a clockwork. I'm incredibly happy with my choice. So now I'm looking for any excuse to get into it and drive wherever ;-)

It's a Sportback, 1.4TFSI with cylinder on demand (140hp), s-tronic transmission, sport but with deselected sport suspension, glacier white, high-gloss package, 17" kinetix wheels, keyless entry, Bang&Olufsen sound, Milano leather in chestnut brown, parking sensors, rain/light sensors, active cruise control, dual zone a/c, back center armrest with through loading facility and ski bag, removed A3/TFSI badge on the back, tyre monitor, leather multifunction sport steering wheel with paddles, rear airbags, alu interior + mistral details, SD navigation, xenon and LED lights, hill hold, heated mirrors, light package, storage package, chrome exhaust pipes, color DIS, isofix... :-)
Your interior is unusual - I like it!
i have the SE and its just regular twin pipes, no chrome i'm afraid :(
Found the post but no mention of trim? Also he was from Trinidad not South Africa, I thought it was their spec level.
I ordered S-Line so should get chrome ;)
By the way, chestnut brown leather looks a lot darker in person than on my photos.. unfortunately the camera flash makes it look very light brown, when in fact it's dark brown :-)
Anyway when they arrived I was even more pleased as they really look classy and not to many around either.
Bet they will look good on your Glacier S3.
