    I've got a black pearlescent car at the moment, I don't find it too bad. I will just have to put extra effort in to keep it clean.

    Absolutely fine, I told them the broker prices of 8/8.5% rang two local dealers, the first offered 6% then rang the other who gave 7%. I think you just need to sound keen and that you will get down and sign the paperwork the same day. Prior to phoning I went to another local dealership who gave 5% without too much trouble but wouldn't budge from there without "proof" of printed broker quotes and even then there was no guarantee of further discount, I switched off at that point.

    Good to here, none of the north west dealers seem to be giving anything off! But problem is, some are owned by same group, so will have the same stance on discounts. I really need to get my self into gear, and get a car sorted!

So I have paid £35 for thin air, I asked about a refund for the quotation and was told no refund, however I could write an email to the company director and plea with him, grrr.
    Well.. I sent the following nicely worded email to Richard Saunders the company director of DTD as follows...

    Dear Richard,

    I paid £34.95 for a printed quotation on the 14th October 13 for an Audi S3 sportback, the discount at that time was around 8.5%. I telephoned this morning, just three days later wishing to purchase the vehicle and was informed by a member of your staff that the discount had changed to circa 6.5% and that the quote would not be honoured. I have effectively paid £34.95 for nothing. I think in this instance it would be fair to refund me the cost of the quotation. Please find attached a pdf copy of the purchased quote.


    kind regards

    ------------------------------

    and the reply :

    Dear xxxx

    Thank you for your email.

    The printed quotation that you paid for was provided, therefore you have
    received what you paid for.

    The fact that our deals change from time to time is irrelevant.

    Regards,

    Richard Sanders.
    ------------------------------
    Well you can't blame a boy for trying. Don't agree with the logic, I am glad I didn't use DTD in the end. Who says money doesn't grow on trees

    I think I will set up a website, charge for printable car quotations and when a customer actually makes an enquiry for purchase slash the discount and not honour the quote.. hang on I think someones thought of that one already I'm not bitter at all, honest!

    Does it say on the quote anywhere how long it is valid for? I wouldn't give up so easily... doesn't sound like a great way to do business to me!

    Did you pay for the quote by card? You could always threaten to request a chargeback from your bank on the quote...

    The quote mentions nothing about validity, and to just put the boot in it states....

    About this quote

    Quotes are for information only and this does not constitute an offer by us capable of acceptance by you.


    Basically it's not worth the paper it's written on, of course you don't find that out until you have already paid up your £34.95. Paid by visa, might consider charge back. I would have been embarrassed to take the paid for quote to a dealership with the above strap line.

    Hahaha I was literally about to ask that question. I have a feeling it's standard because I've seen it on so many different videos.

    Great minds think alike !

    I have seen it in vids. Is it only on the S3 and not the A3? I have a Rocco atm and think the needle sweep was only on the R line edition and if you wanted in your normal Rocco was a computer job.

    Standard on the S3, also S3 appears in the DIS when the ignition is turned on. I've got a picture of the S3 logo I'll try and load it.

    Does the boost gauge use backlights to indicate its status? I can't see any needles in that picture?

    Took the local S3 demo out again yesterday as I was in modifying my order. A nice 1.5 hours thrash in full dynamic mode. It seemed as though the car was learning to hold a gear longer in the M setting and throttle response seemed slightly sharper once it was learning I wasn't Miss Daisy driving....
    the overall fuel consumption on the demo car was 25.4 mpg and the mileage was around 3200 I think. Not too shabby for 300hp IMO.
    interestingly it w my first time in an S3 in greasy conditions and the car had a definite tendency to under steer coming out of damp greasy medium speed corners.
    Does anybody know how the differentials work ?

    On my extended test drives had some wet weather and pushed the car hard out of corners to test it. Most of time the S3 will be front wheel drive and transfers some drive to rear when front grip struggles. You could feel this happen but only when it really was being pushed hard. It only felt like slight understeer before I booted it then it seemed pretty neutral.

    Also - I have seen test vids (dutch i think - with sub titles!) when they talk of S3 having a natural 4 wheel drift under power on loose/slippery surfaces so not understeer or oversteer.

    I recall from somewhere that the max posisble power split front to rear is 85/15 %. But it def works well

    Good point. It's an expensive look though isn't it. Misano red, pano roof and black styling pack... Would cost about 2k to achieve!

    I'm calling my dealer tomorrow to do the same thing. I'm going to drop my mileage from 10k to 5k which should save me £30 a month or the equivalent to £1000 worth of options.

    I've already got:
    3 door, s tronic
    Panther black
    Black styling pack
    Privacy windows
    Lunar silver alcantara seats
    Black inlays
    LED headlights
    B&O sound system
    Tech pack
    Comfort pack (rear parking sensors + standard cruise)
    Extended mono finish
    Interior light pack

    Quick question! What would people add for the 1k?!

    P.s. I'm not interested in the super sports seats!
    Ordered 16/8/13, Build Week 44, Delivery Nov/Dec 13. Panther Black / Silver Alcantara, 3dr S-Tronic. Black Styling Package, Black 3D Design Inlays, 18" x 7.5J ‘5-twin-spoke “Star”’ design anthracite, partly polished alloy wheels with 225/40 R18 tyres,

    Maybe some folding mirrors and sunroof?!

It only felt like slight understeer before I booted it then it seemed pretty neutral.

    Also - I have seen test vids (dutch i think - with sub titles!) when they talk of S3 having a natural 4 wheel drift under power on loose/slippery surfaces so not understeer or oversteer.

    I recall from somewhere that the max posisble power split front to rear is 85/15 %. But it def works well

    possibly a rear ARB set up to protect the "innocent"?

    Hi, I've noticed that, with my offer, the final payment went up with the decrease of the monthly payment when my mileage allowance was changed to 5k...
