    Im not a fan of the hekko wind deflectors simply because they don't work as well compared to my Honda OEM ones. The Hekco are held together with tape aren't they? And anything above 40 mph they become useless. My Honda ones I had were more bigger than the Hekco ones and was able to keep the wind and noise out at 60 mph

    On my old car I had climair ones and at motorway speeds and beyond they were fine. They merely sat in the window channel with absolutely no movement. So if they're anything to go by then these have no chance of moving as they are stuck in place wit double sided sticky tape and clips

    I have team heko wind deflectors and they are fine. Tape is used to hold them in position on first install which then you put metal clips in to hold them in place perfect. Haven't had any problems

    Finally picked her up this morning. Am so impressed, I didn't actually test drive the 184 Quattro before buying but it's even better than I imagined. Have only driven it a few miles on dual carriageway and a few back roads, but I like the really smooth, but satisfying, power delivery and the suspension/handling feels just the right mixture of firm and comfort.

    It's a 184PS Sportsback S-tronic Quattro in Daytona Grey with leather, SD Card Nav, Audi Sound System and a few other bits and pieces.

    Very nice and pleased to hear your experiences of the 184PS diesel. I couldn't get to test drive one either, and I'm a touch sceptical, but coming from a 115PS Focus TDCi I'm sure it'll make me smile.

    So I’ve had the car a week! Wow!

    What a car, stunning looks and great to drive.
    I picked it up from Glasgow Audi at midnight on the 1st and mine was just one of 44 cars leaving that night. The atmosphere was great with champagne flowing, a DJ in the corner and lots of excited soon to be Audi drivers. Not sure I would collect at midnight again, but a nice touch after waiting since November!
    The first few hundred miles have been very good. The power from this 1.4 COD is amazing. Hard to believe it is only a 1.4. It feels very much like a quiet 2 litre diesel with lots of low down pulling power but you don’t have to change so soon. I like it a lot !!!
    Still experimenting with the driving modes and have been mainly using efficiency and dynamic. Second gear in dynamic is amazing much, much faster than my previous 2.0 Golf GT TDI.
    Inside the cabin is as everyone comments; simply perfect. The feel of the steering wheel is amazing and I am so glad a friend recommended the lighting pack as this adds the finishing touches. The MMI is easy to use and pretty cool. I have a 64 gb SD card loaded with all my tunes and although the standard speakers are ok I reckon for a 26 grand car they could be better as standard.
    Nice touches that I have noticed so far include the nice fade out of music when taking the ignition key out, the smoothness of the gear changes, especially 3, 4, 5 and 6. The seats are very comfy and the view out the back isn’t as bad as I had thought. I haven’t had auto lights or rain sensors for a while and they are great. Never had a car prepared for phone before and this works very effectively with people on the other end not noticing I am in the car.
    Cleaning the car has been a joy (sad I know) and it has already had a couple of coats of Pete’s 53. Stunning, easy to put on and great shine and water beading. The carpet mats are thick enough to put stripes on them with the hoover. The little things!
    I hope everyone else is enjoying their cars and if you’re still waiting for yours…… it is so worth the wait!

    Just the sport suspension. I was worried for a while that it would look like a 4x4 but I am very pleased. The ride is firm but feels planted and agile.

    1.4 cod...haven't even test driven one but everyone seems to rate it. I too have been worried that with sport suspension there would be an odd gap between the wheel arches but your photos show otherwise so I'm relieved!

    Also had my 1.4 cod a week now and done 700miles of very enjoyable driving. I'd echo the previous comments on the engine, definitely seems more powerful than your average 1.4. Also getting 50 mpg on motorway runs in efficiency mode. Then switch to dynamic when I want some fun and it really pushes yo back in the seat when pulling away from the lights! Great car

    Hello from down unda!

    Here's my S3 rocking 19" rotors wrapped in 235s.

    Unfortunately, they're from an A4, so the offsets are bit messed up. The wheels are off to shop as we speak to shave off 5mm on the front, and 3mm on the rear. They'll be back on again this weekend coming up!

    Picked up last week and far exceeding my expectations. Have to say, the best thing for me about this car is the B&O sound system. It's just epic and puts a smile on my face every time I turn the volume up!
    Car drives and handles superbly, and the S-Line suspension set-up is fine for normal driving, not uncomfortable at all.
