    Thanks Sandra,

    Yes will look out for the meets, hopefully be at home but as usual everything works out the opposite!!
    I will get pictures posted as my sons will do that for me if I am away, every new car has been picked up by my wife as I am away so I can see this one being no different.

    I only seen the colour Scuba Blue on a picture of a Q5 which I thought looked nice. Basically the car has been spec'd by my wife, test drove by my wife and final order by me, I have never been inside an A3 so let's hope Audi stand up to their reputation as my Q5 and A4. I didn't take the NAV option on the A3 as I have been let down on the Q5 with this, the map is a out 20 months out of date on a car that was built in February/March 2012 and no update as yet again I will have to pay hence no NAV on the A3,

    Personally I don't think pictures do scuba justice. I hate it in pictures but when I see it in the flesh I instantly love it!

    Some colours stand out but dont change, I have had inky blue (passat), mauritius blue (A4) and these colours look so different in the shade and the bright light, the Scuba Blue colour will look the same also, as I have seen pictures of it under good day light which made us choose this colour.
    I currently have a Harley Davidson which is Colbolt Blue, this looks purple in the shade but the full effect of the colour in the sun is amazing.

    Aberdeen Audi phoned regarding car pick up date, Friday no good as my wife is working and I am in Spain, salesman is on weekend off so it will have to be Monday. I did ask why anyone else cannot release the car, no positive answer other than they like the salesman to follow through to the end.

    Car picked up today will post pictures later, so far very inpresed having never driven the A3 before. The full S-line spec and suspension is brilliant, I would actually say it is better than my departed A4 S-line.
    The Scuba Blue colour is very interesting, when the car was in the show room and we were 30ft from the car it looked black, as we got closer the true affect of the colour stood out.

    Pick the car up on Monday drives great even with the full S-line suspension, I would say the set up is better than my departed A4 S-line. Scuba Blue, the first one sold by Aberdeen Audi in this format.
