    i finally called it a night, and my first impressions of the drive , actually the whole car, remember only test drove a S-line with "sport" suspension..............A-maz-ing !!!!!!!!

    The ride is def' harder than the sport, obviously, but not greatly , just enough to make my grin even bigger!

    My opinion at the moment ( after a few hours driving ) s-line suspension set up all the way.!!!!

    Looks fantastic

    I was wondering about aftercare, and when people started waxing etc. Is the protection you have had done more than would have been on there originally? Do Audi recommend anything to do?

    Just not sure at what point you mess with the original newness and start spraying dash board shine around etc!

    Cheers.

    I'll be doing mine at the 1st opportunity. The dealer made a bit of an arse of my A1.

    I'm planning on using gtechniq exo for the paintwork and G1 for the glass.

    What are your impressions of the sunroof? Does it make the interior very light and was it worth the cost?

    if anyone came near my car with dashboard shine ... I'd kill em lol!!

    to be honest I've never taken the dealer option of paint protect usually an autoglym product as they charge stupid amounts for something I could do better! And cheaper! Just happens this time round am soooo busy I would be leaving it to long. New car whether it was spotless when I'd have picked it up, straight home for a clean polish and wax , get some proper protection on that paintwork!!

    Again, can’t say enough about them but Tonbridge Audi do really push the boat out.

    Car is going in on Friday , initially to check the sunroof as its developed a rattle L, will be in most of the day, as its also getting a health check, valet and system update if needed, understand this is probably standard but coming from a company car of many years , and before that mostly Fords or Vauxhalls, just not used to it, they also offered to stream the work being completed to their lovely big flat screen in the dealers waiting area, if I wanted to stay and watch.

    Now I was tempted but no, only issue was they had no courtesy cars availably on that day, so was almost stuck, until I got a call from my salesman who sold me the car, asked if my dad was still looking at getting an AllRoad? Which he is, so will be picking up a brand new AllRoad for the day or more if needed whilst my car is being worked on. Only stipulation is my Dad at least looks at it lol.!!!

    I had an A4 loaner a while back and the pedals were shockingly offset. I checked and the clutch is actually in perfect line with the steering column!

    It's just piss-poor design and a lack of consideration for the right-hand drive market. Left hand drive cars have the accelerator next to the central tunnel but, since this is just a potentiometer these days with no mechanical linkage required behind it, there's no problem. When they switch to right-hand drive, obviously the clutch needs to be next to the central tunnel and this does need a mechanical linkage, for which there often isn't space, so they have to move it away from the tunnel, shunting all the pedals to the right.

    Nice, are you happy with how the suspension handles the high and low speed bumps on the motorway and country roads. Can you compare it with the previous A3?

    very happy, to be honest I prefer a firm ride and this gives me that! Do some country roads but mostly motorway, and high and low speed bumps are not that far off my old A3 with sport set up, the biggest difference is cornering , feels so much more solid!!

    Also You feel more of a general rumble on all roads, but I like that!

    I'm not sure if it's still the case, but a few years ago Audi had a scheme in place whereby they'd provide you with a temporary car if your order got delayed. I'm not sure if it still exists, or the exact conditions around it, but it may be worth asking your dealer/broker/lease company

    I don't think this has ever been a general policy but it was the case a year or two back when there were major delays on the 8P S-Line Black Edition. People were given expected delivery dates which were then put back by months and Audi started giving courtesy cars to a lot of affected people.

    This is an extract from the back of the A3 brochure:

    New car delivery
    Once we’ve confirmed a delivery date
    for your car, we’ll keep you informed of
    progress. Subject to reasonable notice,
    we’ll then deliver it to a place of your
    choice, whether that’s your home or place
    of work. In the unlikely event of a delay,
    we’ll provide a courtesy car to minimise
    inconvenience and keep you mobile

    Is expected delivery date the same as confirmed delivery date?

    I have an expected delivery date which appears to be the dealer's best estimate from the point of order, which is currently beginning of May. I'll get a confirmed delivery date after the build week is known.

    My guess is Audi will hide behind the terminology on this one, as I have a feeling orders will take a little longer to fulfil than dealers have estimated!

    You have a build date, then usually 4 weeks after ( 28 days) until delivery. Mine is march 1st scheduled build date and last week April/ 1st week May delivery date. But because they are nice I get a weekly email update! I don't want an update, I want my car.
