    Does your dealer update you without you having to ask or do you contact him regularly to see the status of your order?

    Having had a PANTHER BLACK car for the last 3 years I can confirm that it is just black all said and done and if I was re-ordering I would 100% order the regular black at zero extra cost ... as for 99% of the time, you do not see the fleck so it just looks like a solid black - but I now feel that the solid blacks are deeper and richer in colour so they look more blacker - just my view of course but this is speaking from experience.

    Estoril on the other hand, looks stunning in both dull and light conditions - such a rich deep lustre and amazing expensive classy sport looking colour that really suits the S cars .. and of course is exclusive to the S cars.

    Truly stunning pics thank you.

    He's giving me updates without me asking, i guess he liked me when i bought the car, lol. I didn't push him down on the price too much and it was quite a fun experience for both of us (a lot of laughing lol).

    Does anyone know if the stitching on the door/round gear stick is also lunar silver like the seats? also, does the mono.pur pack delete the silver? I'm still struggling to figure out what you're getting with mono.pur??

    So you want to know the colour of the stitching on a lunar silver interior? Am I right in thinking that?

    Sorry that was a confusing question wasn't it... the seats are black with silver stitching... the question was - is the stitching on the doors and round gear stick also silver?

    my understanding is that without mono.pur the steering wheel and gear lever have the silver stitching. The doors and centre console don't have any covering or stitching.

    with mono.pur you get covered centre console and door handles/arms rests with stitching in silver.

    I just know that I've seen cars with and without mono.pur and the mono.pur was a no-brainer YES for me - will make it really nice inside.

    So this is my spec...

    S3 3-door
    S-tronic
    Phantom black
    Black styling pack
    Privacy Glass
    Titanium matt alloys

    Xenon plus with adaptive lights
    Advanced key

    Tyre pressure monitor

    Have I missed anything?? (apart from the drugs to go in my drug dealer looking car lol)

    Provisional build week - 4
    Delivery 1st March (fingers crossed)
    As many have pointed out, keep the smokers pack as it means you get to keep the cup in the front.

    Get fit, loose weight....MAD! that is exactly what i am doing, i vowed to myself and fiancee that i would look and feel the part for delivery 1st March, maybe a slight justification to my fiancee for spending some of OUR capital, but more importantly that i am doing it for myself.

    Beer is kept to an absolute minimum and 3/4 gym sessions a week have helped me transform my looks and direction. New wardrobe for new body and new car come 1st March, with photos of both a thin me and new S3 on the fridge as a constant reminder of my goal.

    Good effort - that's really going to spur me on too now then.

    I'm starting from a different place as i'm usually a regular gym goer and typically have my weight well under control, but this year has seen a load of dodgy health issues for me which have resulted in a lot of prednisolone steroid use and lots of midriff fat accumulation. Thankfully I'm on a reducing dose now so can start really tackling it.

    Got to get from 13st10 to between 12st and 12st7 by march - should be ok.

    3 words that can only describe this new car and difference from the 8P...............OH. MY. GOD.

    It was pitch black when i picked it up, so i will try get some pics tomorrow at work as it was only drizzling tonight.

    First off here is my spec...

    S3 SB
    S-Tronic
    Glacier White
    Panoramic sunroof
    Black roof rails
    Privacy Glass
    LED lights
    Super sport seats
    B&O sound system
    Interior light pack
    Advanced key
    Sat Nav
    Folding mirrors
    Acoustic rear parking sensors

    It was start stop traffic the whole way home but i took it out for 30 mins tonight when the roads were quieter...

    The handover was quick and efficient, when i arrived the car was in the showroom under a brand new sheet which was promptly pulled off, to which all the staff ran over to look at the super sport seats as they have not seen them yet. This was Leeds Audi and i can't recommend them enough, ordered my car 9th August took deliver 30th October and was originally quoted first week of December. Salesman - Jonathon....top bloke..

    The drive

    The very first thing i noticed was the MASSIVE improvement in steering feel, much more responsive and turns in alot quicker, and then as i increased the revs the very apparent and beautiful boomy exhaust note. I won't be taking it over 4k revs but i can tell you the car feels like a powerful diesel in low revs - very very torque-y.

    The ride is magnificent, absorbs every bump in the road, feels VERY comfortable but stiff and planted at the same time, again another big improvement from an already brilliantly riding 8P.

    Cabin and driving position - out of this world.

    Super sport seats - gorgeous to look at and without a doubt the most comfortable racing / bucket type seats i have ever sat in, i was actually shocked by this because the 8P bucket seats look amazing but are very rigid to sit in, the new ones are alot more springy and cushioning, SO glad i spec'd these things.

    Interior light pack - alot more subtle than in the pics, and well worth the money, makes the b&o speakers and cabin an even more beautiful place to be, just very classy.

    S-Tronic - The first ever automatic i have owned, i'm ridculously impressed by this transmission even though i haven't opened the taps. Gear changes are smooth and lighting fast, even heard a little "boom" on a few upshifts, actually took me by surprise.

    LED Lights - i know this is a big one for alot of people on here - first of all your money has been very well spent. I live in an area that requires alot of dark country lanes to get to, had the full beam on tonight and the best description i have read is the daylight comparison, they are extremely bright, they light up the tarmac and trees so much it's hard to keep focus on the road ahead as you tend to start to admire the tone and sheer clarification of them, they are definitely very different to standard xenons.

    Given my short time in the car there is not much else to say at this point, it looks stunning, the pano roof, black rails and privacy glass blend in very well with the glacier white and titanium alloys, without being biased it is the sportiest S3 i have seen so far.

    Any questions just feel free to ask.

    Cheers!
    how did you find the lateral support in the S/sport seats? I too had the buckets in my 8P3 and they did offer excellent support, however, the driver bolster was beginning to wrinkle after a month of driving. Hoping that the new s/s seats will offer similar support without the premature wrinkling of the bolster areas? Your thoughts?

    This might help. Both have mono.pur finishes & are an example of the contrast stitching colours. Unfortunately I can't find a detailed closeup of the lunar silver interior stitching as it's still quite rare to find that option.

    Does anybody know if the black styling package has a gloss finish like our German counterparts enjoy or whether we in sunny England receive a matte finish? Below is glossy (german) but my neighbour has a has matte styling accents on her 13 plate S4...

    I have a PCH Skoda Superb. It's very cheap for what it is as it is exceptionally well spec'd. from the factory (think £3k+ of extras on an S3) and they probably had a number they wanted to shift (I haven't seen the same deal when I've been looking recently). I didn't have the money in the bank and PCH was WAY cheaper than me entering into any form of finance deal for it (like about £5k over the 3 years I have it compared to the PCP deal I was offered on the same car). It works because the car is cheap, and has a relatively high residual value and I didn't have the money available.

    Let's say you have £30k in the bank and wanting to buy a car. Unless you are intending to invest the money somewhere which will give you a guaranteed return higher than inflation AND have the money spare in your cashflow to pay the monthly repayments, it is still overall cheaper to buy the car outright as the finance will be worked out to pay for any depreciation and a profit for the person providing the finance.

    People should be very clear about this: any form of financing - the financier will NOT be losing money. The person paying the financiers profit is the person paying the premiums - i.e. you.
    That's not strictly true as you assume that you cant get more via an investment. I am paying for my car on pcp with a deposit and used some of the money I would have used for the car on a deposit on a new buy to let apartment instead that has increased in value by at least £10K already, my finance is £4.5K. Sure, the increase on the apartment is paper money but you don't get anywhere in life without a gamble, no matter how small or large the gamble is. then again id never encourage people to finance a car, its a matter of personal choice. Neither way is necessarily better.

    The rest of the money ill invest in something else.

    You have found a way to invest which beats inflation - so you are better doing that. In your case, it is better to use the money elsewhere - no question of that.

    My point was though, I reckon the overall cost to you would be lower if you were on PCH rather than PCP (it was a lot cheaper for me with the Skoda). It's just as a nation, we seem to want to own something rather than rent it.

    Can't say anything about the driver bolster just yet, but the lateral support is very good, there is a trade off though between the 8P buckets and the 8V Super Sports - the latter are 100X more comfortable whereas the 8P's were deeper and held you in more securely..

    If I had to choose between them for a track day and nothing else - I would go for the 8P

    If I had to choose between them for ANY other driving than a track day - I would go with the 8V

    The major difference is the rigidity, the 8P's cushioning around the lateral and outer thigh areas were like bricks, the 8V's have a lot more spring which adds to the unbelievable comfort of them. I'm actually looking forward to a long motorway journey!

    Quick question about the MMI system...

    During my handover the salesman paired up my phone and ipod, he then had a menu screen up for the ipod where you could select artists, albums, songs, playlists etc...

    Since then I have been unable to find that menu!

    When I select media and then select my ipod it just lists all songs, and every button I press takes me to screens other than the ipod menu...

    Can anyone help? I'm guessing it's gonna be something really simple.

    Cheers

    Interesting info regarding delivery times, spoke to my dealer today (that always sounds bad), he said that my car was due to be on a ship on Sunday (this weekend) and I should be able to collect on Friday 8th November.

    He said he will call me Sunday to confirm its on a ship, I need to provide retention cert for my private reg ASAP and go in to sign finance etc on Thursday, collection Friday approx 2pm.

    just hoping hope he has this right.

    This may give some gauge of possible delivery dates for all those still waiting, oh my build week was 41 so it's been built and waiting shipment a while.

    fair point, my situ isn't the same for everyone. I agree in this country we want to own everything, which is no bad thing, however there isn't much point with a car unless
    a) you stick with an old car
    b) have lots of money to throw £30K+ at a car and then top it up by £15-20K every 3 years
    c) throw a deposit of 10% at a car, pay silly monthly payments and then get a new car in 3 years with hopefully at worst for another 10% deposit - that's the theory I guess
    d) Lease a car - which I may consider next time, though this doesn't ever give you the option to buy

    would be interesting to see what the cheapest option is over the average lifetime of a car of say 12 years

    just hoping hope he has this right.

    This may give some gauge of possible delivery dates for all those still waiting, oh my build week was 41 so it's been built and waiting shipment a while.
    I do hope he is right because your car seems to be late, mine was build week 40 and arrived in UK well over 2 weeks ago, I will have had it for a week when yours enters UK.
    I was told that once the car arrives in UK it can take up to 10 working days to clear customs and be ready for transport to dealer. Dealers only usually know of delivery either the day before or on the day it is sent to them.
    It really is worth the wait.
    Week 40: Brilliant Red S3 SB, manual, luna silver alcantara, anthracite alloys, comfort pack, non smoking package, tyre pressure warn, folding mirrors, cruise control, rear parking sensors, SD-satnav.
    Delivered on-time.

    Great cheer pal, the panther boys will, I'm sure, look forward to them!

    Don't think of it as poor weather, think of it as a great chance to experience the added grip courtesy of Quattro!

    Jesus that's a quick turn around.

    By that measure my build week of 44 (this week coming) should be available to pick up by the third week in October! Exciting times for us all!

    I suspect I may have been moved forward to 41 but don't officially know that.
