    Showroom Sportback

    Just returned from visit to (fairly) local dealers having seen the Sportback in the flesh .... S-line in Amalfi White and I have to say it looked absolutely amazing. It was a left-hand drive with all the trimmings and they had the tech pack on display too.
    I was thinking that the tech pack was a step too far money-wise, but I was really impressed with it. As I've got nothing to compare it with, is it really worth £1000? How much better is it than the basic set-up?
    Such a beautiful car though - once I was sat inside, I really didn't want to leave .......

    Where did you see it Ellie, I saw one briefly about a month ago so would love to have another look, and that sounds similar to what I have ordered minus the tech pack. For me the extra money wasn't justified, but it does look nice.

    Saw it in Audi Watford - unfortunately it's only there for one more day .... it's worth the trip if you're not too far away!

    Why so keen? It'll just be amateur (probably phone) pics of a car that has already been photographed and filmed dozens of times by professionals.
