    I'm actually thinking of plasti dipping the chrome window surrounds. I like the rest of the chrome, just not so much around the windows

    depends whether you want the car to stand out a little or not - I opted for misano red, I like the colour, black is too bland for me and keeping is clean is a mare

    Good to hear as I spec'd B&O. And I spec'd the black trims, gone for stealth with brilliant black and the black pack. Can't wait now! Gonna be a long 6 weeks!

    I spoke to Ben yesterday by the way, yours is going for initial development I think as you have it now (not fair) and ours will go later when we have had the exhaust system and Forge parts developed Stage 1 will be insane anyway if it is around the 370bhp mark!

    That will look very good, I considered all black too but fancied a change from my last S3 as that was all black including the wheels. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1385673203.678724.jpg
    I'll speak to Ben about it as he's got the wife's X5 at the mo. We're gonna sort a big brake kit too before the Autosport Show as it's the same brakes as the new Octavia.
    What are Forge developing?

    I've got my Misano and love it.
    It's been around 15 years since I've had a red car, but Misano is great on a sunny day, in the dark and especially under car park lights, really stands out and shows the subtle lines of the car well.

    that was one of the easiest decisions for me. I was drawn to the audi with the pic of the s3 saloon and I like the colour. Estoril blue was too dark for me but ive had a metallic blue pug 307xsi for almost 11 years so that's enough thanks. Prior to that I had a graphite metallic peg 205gti for about 8 years I think and not keen on another dark car which look great when clean but you spend your life cleaning it.

    after ordering, I did have a slight cold sweat thinking that maybe estoril blue was a better option, so I had a look at a s5 near my workplace that was in estoril blue and I though it was too bland for me. saw a misano red s3 and glacier white s3 at the same time - I liked both cars and thought the glacier white its pano roof was really nice with privacy glass - id colour the trim in black

    they have the parade red interior s3 stronic in Epsom surrey - id suggest looking at it as I hate the parade red as it looked a bit garish, really in your face and a bit chavvy - sorry. if its not too late and you are near Epsom or theres one with that interior near you id check it out - save your money and get the supersport seats instead

    I currently have a red car, Fiesta R reg, for tip runs so it doesn't count but my last red car was a A/1984 golf gti mk2 in mars red (of course!) and I sold that about 17-18 years ago - amazingly if I exclude the tip run car ive had 2 cars in 18 years, lol - well if I ignore the wifes 2 cars in the last 15 years

    Does anyone from Aus who's ordered an S3 have any info regarding how long it takes to arrive? Does Audi go via South Africa or the Panama Canal?

    Dealer (Audi Geelong) has told me to expect 10 weeks from build but I'm hoping he is taking the course of 'under-promising and over-delivering'

    Haha completely agree, but when gear changes are that smooth and instant and that lovely whoomph on upshifts is too good to not have. But then cruising around with little effort is nice as well.
    going from a manual 3 pot 1.2 60 plate polo to this will be well nice!

    Hey thats my local dealer too - thats the car I test drove. It also has black inlays which is what I went for in the end. I liked the red interior my self but was not willing to spend the extra. I think the price is more that the super sports seats which definitely look nice bug again I did not have the budget for those either.

    Hi Guys,

    I have seen the parade red, the Bolton Audi demo that I test drove had it and actually I really liked it. I know what you mean royalsteve but I think the red is reasonably understated and I loved the red stitching on the steering wheel etc, really makes the interior stand out for me. It just worked well, especially on Misano. The super sports seats are nice but then you lose the red stitching so im going to keep the parade red package.

    In the process of ordering a S3, we currently have the new S-Line TDI in Daytona grey and will be keeping the car for work.

    I'm still undecided on manual or auto, my golf gti ed 35 was DSG, looking at misano red, super sports seats, comfort pack, SD sat nav, advanced key, unsure on B & O, folding mirrors.

    Any other options worth it or anything anyone would drop?

    Drop advanced key, there are better things to spend 425 quid on! Privacy glass, interior light pack, audi sound or B&O springs to mind

    It's a lot of money to keep your key in your pocket, I would be worried I have left the car unlocked all the time.

    If you've had it before you'll know how useful keyless is, you still have to lock it anyway and there is enough audio visual confirmation to know the car is locked. It is standard on both our Fords and we wouldn't do without it...

    There is an option called Mono.Pur or something. It improves your interior but getting rid of the plastic bits by your knees and door arm rests. Annoyingly I didn't know about that option till coming on this forum by which time my car was built but I was gutted to have missed that option as its only £250 roughly and looks great! Also very simple but essential.... Flat tyre indicator (£75).

    Dealer just rang offering a discount of 8%, manual, misano red, advanced key, folding mirrors, SD sat nav, super sports seats, B&O and comfort pack for exactly 32k on the road.

    Does it sound like a good deal?

    8% sounds very good. A few of us managed to get 9% from Kings Lynn but they have now reduced that to 7%, so looks like you've done well. Shopping around definitely pays because some dealers are offering zilch.

    If you know of others who offer 9% then let these guys know, Kings Lynn were the only dealer who I found offering that level of discount and for new guys on here its all worth sharing. The more dealers the better because in the North West they seem to be giving v little indeed.

    I have mate and it's the best I can get. I think 8% is canny and I'm reasonably happy with that as initially they offered me a discount of £900!!

    Just need to see what the lead times are

    Happy if people want to PM me.. but only if they promise not to put a PP on it!!!

    I believe many are now offering 9% BUT you will generally need to be known to them and ordering a reasonable number of options. .

    I know you have an affinity with Kings Lynn but they wouldn't help me!

    8% is pretty good Ziggy, if you're happy that's the main thing!!

    I know you have an affinity with Kings Lynn but they wouldn't help me!

    8% is pretty good Ziggy, if you're happy that's the main thing!!
    I wont rise to your PP comment!!! Know how much you hate them but im sure that all PP owners will post pics of their cars on here over the coming months! Many offering 9%, not in the North West they arent! I can think of 3 or 4 round here who would only offer 3-4% regardless of options. The only affinity I have with Kings Lynn is the discount, i'd much rather not drive all the way over there but for 9% its a no brainer. All S3 owners should club together and buy you a PP for xmas!
    ivicker and Kempysue like this.
