    Hi Peterdona
    Welcome to the forum...Looks a very nice spec, just wondered if you managed to get a deal on the Advanced key option, I couldn't believe the cost at £425, its a standard option on my current Audi & whilst its great to have struggle to justify that expenditure, did you manage to get a drive in a Sport Line A3 before committing to it?

    Hi Paul

    no discount im afraid on extras they just wouldnt budge on anything with it being a brand new model, i did however manage to sort out free servicing and GAP insurance with them so that was a bonus.

    The advanced key wasnt an option for us it was a must and yeah i agree the £425 is a pricey but we have had this on our last 3 cars and it is a pain going back to using a key again.

    i havnt test drove an a3 s-line as of yet, they had a brand new a3 s line in a local showroom with quite a few extras on so i got to see the interior and a feel of how ours will look inside, i i did manage to test drive a a3 sport 2.0 tdi and was quite impressed with our 2nd test drive, i would advise anyone taking a car out on a test drive to get them to let you keep it over night if possible, this way i went over eveything.

    i still havnt test drove an a3 with the s line suspension and have read and heard a lot of people advising just to stick with the sport suspension but im sticking with my choice (wasnt happy with the extra wait of 4 weeks for this option like)

    one option im gutted about was the automatic box its gonna be tuff going back to a manual, as this option isnt available at present as audi seem to drip feed new models through, i have made it clear to the dealers that if a automatic box becomes available to order before i pick mine up then im not taking it.

    downside is that it will mean a longer wait

    There lying, due to the suspension!

    I ordered mine couple weeks ago and was told march 1st, then April 1st and now last week in April maybe May 1st.
    I've been told by my broker..... Due to such high demand across Europe Audi are considering opening another production line just for the new a3 8v , after all the great reviews and low c02 emission ratings both private buyers and companies alike are placing orders for them like they are going out of fashion?

    I just hope they don't put my delivery date back even more

    And I have specified the s line stiffer lower suspension.

    update : just had a phone call from the dealer regarding the s-line suspension, im told that they are having a few problems with this, he couldnt gime me the reason why but said if i still wanted it he couldnt give me a delivery date

    now with me adding the automatic box last week this pushed my delivery date back until june, but if i decide to drop the s line suspension to the sport suspension the vehicle will be availble in april...

    ive since checked the audi configurator and this too has dropped the s line suspension for future orders

    That's a little disconcerting Peterdona, sounds like the S Line suspension may be a little unforgiving on UK roads, strange that they're not giving you any idea as to why they're just pulling it out of production, I understand at least 40% of their projected Spring orders are with the S Line set up, that's a lot of deposits to hand back!... a little worrying to say the least!!

    Looks great! I'm very happy that I chose Misano too.

    What are your niggles? Stuff that can be sorted?

    Hopefully small things - lots to like!

    Nah tyneside,
    Wearside was my 1st choice as I'm in Washington but their salesmen didn't have any time for me when I visited their showroom in tracksuit b so I took my money else where, unfortunately they are all the same company around here

    Hi guys also a regular reader and my first post - I'm posting with a bit of a sad face mind as my order has been delayed quite a while

    I have gone for the below spec

    A3 3 door S Line 2.0TDI
    Daytona Grey
    Fine Nappa Leather
    Extended mono.pur
    Privacy Glass
    Comfort Pack
    Multimedia Pack
    B&O Sound System
    Advanced Key

    i placed the order on 10th April and my estimated delivery was 5th Aug which I was abit gutted about but knew was worth the wait. My order has now been pushed back to estimated delivery date of 25th October?? So 28 weeks (7 months from order date)

    anyone else having the same problem and know why!? Slough Audi have not given much away other than they are inundated with orders of the new model???

    cheers

    Bad luck, Deano. What delivery date is on your contract ? I thought that if it goes beyond that you get a courtesy car.
