    New A3 S-Line delivered ! (With Pics)

    Hi all,

    first time audi owner!

    always had BMW's as company cars and been very pleased with them, but along with a job change I've decided to go for something different!

    Been very lucky as apart from a hic up with Audi finance , the dealer was able to acquirer an A3 S-Line 2.0 TDi in glacier white that was already en route from the factory! Car was delivered to dealer this week and fingers crossed ill be picking up Wednesday .

    in addition to standard spec it has;

    DAB radio
    Comfort pack
    Panoramic roof
    privacy glass
    Sat nav

    quick question though as I've seen a few posts about the suspension set up.
    how does this come , standard sport or lowered s-line set up?

    mark.

    Ill be honest, if they are true to their word and its ready come Wednesday it will be the quickest turn around I've ever had on a new car! I only started talking to the dealers about 3 weeks ago! Just lucky I was able to jump the line on a car already on its way with a colour and spec I wanted!

    so saying that would give good recommendations on this dealer, so far so good!

    New job, new address, and initally not enough deposit, so until i put more money down it wasnt getting accepted.

    Ive been in a company car for so long i had nothing intially to put up against the car! it also means ive gotta go back to my old company to get a note from insurance proving ive had no accidents or claims , to be able to get some no claims discount!

    As i said was lucky the dealer was able to find one already on route that fited the bill!

    What have you ordered?

    A3 sportback s-line 1.6tdi. Luckily enough it is just a commuter vehicle and a back up just in case our other vehicle is of the road.
    Don't need it for speed as got a Honda Fireblade for that but still had fun speccing it up, even though is did add to the total price.
    Did get a good price for my px though that helped
    spec is;

    Audi Warranty 5yr 90000 miles
    Adapt cruise/stop&go/pre sense
    Interior lighting package
    Comfort package
    Ext mirr elec/heat/fold
    Cruise control
    Reversing camera
    Technology package
    Hold assist
    Delete mod & eng tech design.
    Flat tire indicator
    Perf Alcantara/leather S line
    Adaptive light with Xenons
    Privacy glass
    Reversible luggage comp mat
    Parking aid at front
    Heated seats
    Rhrough load hatch

    think that's it, lol

    still no build week or delivery date but the sportback isn't released until at least march so we have a bit of a wait.

    The S Line comes as standard with Sports suspension so 15mm lower than standard (SE). You have to 'upgrade' to S Line suspension at zero cost which is a further 10mm lower than Sport. You can also 'downgrade' to standard SE suspension if you wish.

    It would seem most people prefer to go with Sports anyway for a good compromise...

    So either way I'd be stuck with what ever had been specified? Or as its a no cost change would the dealer be able to change?

    Ive only test driven with the standard sport set up, anybody comment on how firm the additional suspension is?

    shame the wait is so long it's one of the reasons I went for the 3 door as I didn't want to wait lol

    No cost down/upgrade at time of ordering but once the car has been delivered I would imagine you'll get charged full cost of new suspension plus labour to change... I've got Sports at the moment but ordered new one with S Line... Not really sure how different it will be...

    I'm interested in hearing how you find the s-line suspension. I ordered last week for delivery in march and just left it with the standard sport suspension but thinking of maybe changing.

    As above - will be very interested to hear your thoughts/impressions on the S-Line suspension. Have you driven a sport suspension model or even an 8P S-Line for comparison?

    I've had two test drives but both cars had sport suspension. The dealer says they only ever order demos with the standard option for suspension. I've got an A1 S-Line and it's solid, to the point where it probably compromises the handling on anything but perfect roads.

    The sport suspension on mine is a lot more compliant and less jarring than the 8P S-Line I had before. I'd suspect the S-Line suspension will be similar to the 8P. I never really had a problem with it tbh, and had two S-Line 8Ps, but sometimes passengers said it was a little firm - I think they notice more than the driver does tbh. Never felt it harmed road-holding or handling though, at least not that I noticed round the Nurburgring :D

    Am in a 62' sportback "sport" at the moment which my company have leased for me until my car turns up, so will
    be able to give a good comparison.

    I'm actually not convinced there was ever really much difference between the sport and s-line suspension in the old model. The S-Line was a little lower but, in terms of ride and compliance, I think they were much the same.

    maybe quite sad....but I quite like seeing new cars all wrapped up......never got the chance to see my current A3 SB when it was delivered before collecting it but I will try and get a wee look at my new SB when it arrives next year (March seems an eternity way at the moment).

    I mind seeing years ago at Stirling Audi a row of brand spanking new TTs and each was like a christmas prezzie all carefully sealed. Was a wonderful sight to behold.

    So pleased they was able to find one with the panoramic roof it really sets the white off on the rest of the car, also breaks the colour up nicely
