    I hope you are all insisting on VPower or similar high octane fuel when Audi are filling them or half filling them.

    Every time I wash the car I give them a quick rub with some Hob Brite - works a treat and isn't very abrasive

    I think they need to inform their dealerships then! I'm build week 6 so I'm assuming I will be one of the lucky ones who will still get an Estoril blue S3.

    I did ask 'across the range' and 'discontinued' does suggest just that, as if it was just the saloon would be 'not available' on saloon? In any event, I have asked them again for further clarification just in case

    When they say discontinued, does this mean that it can't be ordered as an exclusive colour on any future models? Are there any other colours that have been previously discontinued. Period. Sprint blue is no longer available as an S3 offered optional colour any longer but you can still buy it as an exclusive colour so is the plug on estoril blue being pulled completely?

    I wonder why this has happened?

    Perhaps there really are problems matching repaired panels.

    I've seen a few RS6's in Estoril recently too.

    Glad I didn't order it! Was tempted until we saw it in the flesh, had hoped it would be more like Deep Sea Blue.. Nice enough colour.

    Sweet! So I paid 795 less discount for a now exclusive audi colour! God is good!

    For those left disappointed, I would still argue the point with audi UK that it is their fault which they need to rectify perhaps with some money back.

    It is sad that Audi appear to have messed up on deep Sea Blue and now estoril...

    So had all the above emailed to me from my dealer today. I have annotated what is I'm guessing things that are easy to decipher - but what does MPE mean? Week 17 means it has been brought forward by 1 week as was quoted week 18 originally. However my sales guy says the order is now locked and can not be amended. It's still another 13 weeks before it's built! He is very confident it's going to turn up early as he says almost every A3 / A1 on order is coming through 4-5 weeks early. I hope this happens for me!

    Oh and I'm very sad about Estroil........truly stunning colour.

    I'm just about to place my order and delayed due to not being able to decide on colour. I personally don't like estoril, it looks good in the sun but I didn't like it in the shade. Each to their own and all that.

    I was really considering going exclusive and selecting Sepang or Nogaro - and even considered Riviera for a short time- I decided against it though and 'saved' the £1300 additonal cost over the metallic and have decided on monsoon grey (until I change my mind again )

    What I'm hoping is though that Audi release another colour into the standard or metallic option on the S3/A3 - one less colour in the range now - and no option of a 'blue' which from a marketing stand point you would think someone senior in Audi would be thinking would limit their exposure to the market. Especially for those who choose on 'colour' alone. My mum for example picks her cars on size and does she like the colour haha.

    So come on Audi - get your act together and add another colour

    I think they should release nogaro blue as an option, it would look great on a sportback.

    Not sure whether Audi would take a step backwards? I can't recall Audi releasing a colour as part of an optional extra not an exclusive colour but part of the optional swatch.

    Surely they have the technology to create a whole new blue.

    Some advice please guys... I'm looking at buying the service, maintenance and tyres (Audi complete) package but I have to decide whether to opt for fixed interval servicing or longlife. I do about 10,000 miles a year and it'll be a mixture of constant speed motorway driving as well as some fun fast acceleration being a girl-racer round town! So I fall between the two when it comes to deciding...
    Does the fixed interval servicing use longlife oil?? Is it better value for money opting for fixed interval servicing as you get a service every year as opposed to one service every "up to 20k miles" on the longlife service plan?
    HELP! :-)

    For that amount of mileage is the package cost effective?

    How much are they charging a month?

    I would venture that you'll be fine on the variable service and could run a long time between services.

    Is it possible to disable ESP on the S3? Or is it like this, it's off until you press the brake?
    At least in the new Golf R you can disable it completely if I understood the article correctly (Not good in Germany language)

    It's £35.85pm based on 10k miles... Gives you servicing maintenance and tyres over the 3 years. I'm guessing I'll need 6 tyres over that period and 2 services....

    Don't think it completely disables it I haven't tried it on mine but did on the demo car I had for a bit when launched ( manual) it still seemed to cut something back when clutch was released

    £35.85 a month = £1290 over 3 years.

    If you are doing 30,000 miles you MAY get away with one variable service over 3 years, we usually do. First service at 16-18,000 miles circa £250. ( You should have negotiated free ones as part of deal ;-)...

    Tyres I would say 6 tyres maximum, again you may get away with 4 depending on the tyres... at a max of £125 each = £500

    Total = £750. Leaving you £540 just in case.

    Ok so maybe what I need to do is take the package out but cancel it at 18 months (~15k miles) which means I'll have paid out £645... And by that time I will have had 4xtyres (£460) plus a major service (£250 as you said).... Not much in it really....

    Not like me not to be able to decide!! Pilot what sort of maintenance bills can I expect in the first couple of years? Brakes?

    Not sure you can cancel after 18 months Sue. I think you sign up for the full term!! You aren't saving much anyway. We paid £410 for 4 tyres recently and reckon you could talk the dealer into a cheaper service too (£199!)

    We've been running newish Audis/VW's for years the A/S3 tends to do around 10K miles a year and we sell after 3 years circa 26-36k miles. We've never had to pay for any routine maintenance at all apart from tyres and maybe a wiper blade or two.
