    2013 Audi S3

    All good news people bet you all can't wait!
    I'm expecting a mid march build up to now. However I think the weeks are flying by! Anyone else think time is going rather quickly since the new year? Or is it just me? (Ordered 28th dec) so wishful thinking perhaps lol

    I did test drive the manual at Reading but as they'd only do accompanied test drives, not a chance I was going to buy from them!

    It helps having the odd grey hair and knowing your dealer, but I was offered anything I wanted for an extended test drive w/o the dealer in tow.

    If this is something you aspire to do in the future I recommend the following as it's worked for me:

    1) Find a sales man you like or can get along with and start building a rapport with him (mine has been at same dealer for 18 years so it's clear he's not likely to go anywhere fast), we've known each other for 7 years
    2) Buy the car from him (may require an accompanied test drive in the beginning), then when you go back for service/warranty/parts ALWAYS go and talk to him about your car / life in general, keep him in the loop over time of your aspirations for your next purchase (building the rapport)
    3) Always keep your car looking mint every time you go to dealers; never go in with it looking shyte - shows you care for your personal possessions (building respect)
    4) This one is a bit wayward, but it obviously makes some sort of impression. My salesman is always impressed I don't kerb my wheels - to him this shows I'm careful / OCD and builds trust that I'm not a careless loon (building trust)
    5) By the time you go back for your second car you'll be largely allowed to take what you want as the relationship / trust is there. Helps having a clean driving license too.

    He offered me new RS4/5 to try and has even said I can try out an R8 (which I cannot afford!). I said on this occasion I wouldn't take them as I would just feel let down by what I was buying (also shows restraint - I'm not just out for what I can get or abusing the privilege) but I'd say best day to book for an unassisted if you can get one is Sunday as they have limited bodies in the showroom.

    Always take the car back as you found it, fuel topped up to where it was and on time or early and you'll probably never be offered an 'accompanied' test drive again.

    Or, the quicker approach, go to another dealer down the road who treat people like actual potential customers and gave the car for the day without a problem... I've never been to either dealer before, so have zero history (don't currently own an Audi).

    P.S. Last car I purchased (new) was my current Golf in 2001, so I'm not that regular at car dealers

    I think some of it (whilst not right) will be ageist. When I got my first S3 no-one wanted to offer an unaccompanied drive (I was 33 with 5 yrs NCB and ready to place a deposit). All dealers tried were M40/M4 corridor. I've known people who've purchased from other brands (e.g. Lexus) who've been handed a car for a weekend without any quibble so I'm not sure why some Audi dealers are so tight. Porsche are the same, at nearly 40 I couldn't get an unassisted from them. The above may help IF people aren't prepared to travel much.

    I agree with Warren - it's all about rapport and trust.

    I knew within the first 5 mins that Sam at Derby was my kind of no BS salesman, young like me and a real petrol head.

    Their s3 demo was his co car too so he really knew everything about it.

    We've had unassisted drives no problem.

    I went into wearside audi when I was 25 and was enquiring about the a6 avant Le Mans edition. I say down with the dealer (didn't know me from Adam) and said do I get a discount for paying cash? I got the car for the day no accompanied drive. Just brought it back and said I was driving a few cars.
    Had no intention of buying it at all! All it cost me was £10 in fuel for the day.

    I have too little time to waste on dealers like Reading, so just took my business elsewhere. I'm old enough that they should realise I'm not mucking about, if they so stupid that they cannot see that, they'll lose business (as demonstrated by my lack of a purchase!).

    When I got my Golf many moons ago, I was given an unaccompanied test drive, no questions. Even though I went to the dealer with two of my mates from work during a lunch break!

    Thanks for the tip Pilot. Got insurance sorted for £275 with John Lewis (obviously I must be younger than you!)

    Also got GAP+ sorted with ALA - 4 years cover for £232 :-)

    Just need the car now...... :-D

    My dealers have always been quite good with test drives

    The original salesman I used to deal with was excellent, even let me take an R8 out with my friend who does work there but not a salesman - Again good rapport and he knows I look after my vehicles

    I've had 5 Audi's off of them and the only reason I couldn't test the S3 unaccompanied was because it wasn't registered and you need a staff member if on trade plates - She was very good though, even to the point of taking us on one of her test routes and saying you can really give it some down here (hats off to her for that)

    Hah I got an accompanied test drive of the s3 again on trade plates as wasn't registered but when I was asking about the car she knew absolutely nothing. Not a good start. Didn't know what bhp even. That's one of the first things you should know about the car!

    Know it's the same dealer but went to Newcastle audi instead on recommendation from Zig81 and did a deal with Ben Hynes.

    Wearside audi are so crap I would rather drive to Newcastle for a bottle of washer fluid or a pair of wipers etc.

    We've had unassisted drives no problem.
    I also agree. I have purchased all my eight A3s from the same salesman (Lee Stubbings) at the same dealer (Huntingdon Audi). The first was in 1998. Before that I had also purchased nine other Audi's /VW's from another branch of the same dealer so I actual been buying from them since 1976. I have always been to other dealers as well but they have never beaten the deal Lee has offered.

    I can go and see Lee any time and ask for a drive in any Audi and I always get offered an unaccompanied drive for at least the day. I mentioned once before that my wife, who also purchased her A1 from Lee, had bought me a fridge magnet for my birthday which read "Keep Calm and Dream of an Audi R8" and he said "If you want to drive an R8, just let me know" We both regard him now as a friend. He also knows without being asked that I don't like number plate surrounds or the 'Vindis' badge or dealer stickers in my new car.

    Maybe if it's unregistered you do, but I had an S5 for the day that was a 13 plate (but had no tax as it was for sale on dealer forecourt). I was able to take this car on a 120 mile round trip of a regular journey I make to ensure the car was what I needed (unassisted). If the car had not been registered it may have been a different story though.

    Or they were just giving me BS - Wouldn't have thought so though as she let me go out in a Q3 first on our own and the sales controller did say as the sales lady was busy when we got back with the Q3, let's see if it's been registered on our system and if I'll get plates made up and you can take it out on your own (alas that wasn't the case)

    Like you say must be something to do with unregistered vehicles rather than dealer stock etc

    Awesome car there you got to demo mate - and an amazing colour

    I had a similar experience to you -and have also known my Dealer / salesman for several years and bought two previous Audi's from them.

    When looking at an S5 myself last year, they did not have a demo but had a brand new unregistered one in the showroom ... to my amazement they let me take out the showroom car on trade plates for a drive. I did not suggest this as thought no way that wouldbe possible, but hell yeah not a problem.

    Great service when you are looked after like this.

    Why not my first S3 SB Test drive was in an Unregistered, delivery miles on clock, one in the showroom.. Trade plates. Glad I didn't buy that one as initial running in was a little harsh!!

    Yes they phoned me, I'll ask if I can. The car is being picked up and dropped off so I'm not actually going to be there. I'll ring them if not.
    They did say stronic only so must be something to do with the gearbox.

    No it's a SportBack too. 3 doors aren't practical for me anymore. Well they never were in the first place. Just preferred the look of the 3 doors. But on the 8V S3 I prefer the SB.

    Australia bud. Aparrantly different world regions get different options for sone reason. Plus "Europe" gets a proper aluminium sports gear knob as an option if you have manual.

    Apparently the UK is not in Europe tho.....

    I believe we in Aus get the aluminium gear knob as well... Will find out next week, in any case

    They did say stronic only so must be something to do with the gearbox.
    There is an S-Tronic worldwide recall to change the gearbox oil fr synthetic to mineral oil as in some countries there have been power loss issues with the synthetic oil. There is a sticky about it in the General section. Anyone with a DSG / STronic engine pre Jan 2014 will eventually be recalled.

    Oh yes, forgot the S3 had 6spd, maybe it's a software update.

    That's my guess, anything more than that I'm sure it would be on here.

    I was one of the first to get the s3 back in August before official release so maybe an update was released afterwards.

    Is that what they start at?
    S3 (3 door ) £30,640
    S3 SportBack £31,260
    S3 Saloon £33,240

    Seems a logical jump up from S3 to S3 SportBack but an extra £1980 premium just for saloon seems silly. Not just the cost difference from 18" to 19" either! Unless I'm missing something?
