    Pics needed mate, your spec is pretty much the same as mine except the gearbox.

    Hi mate,

    Epsom is my local too and I went and had a drive last week in it (its the grey S3 right?). The footplate was plastic, I checked after all that was said on this forum. Just thought you may Like to know .

    im confused regarding the headlights - so the standard lights on the s3 are xenon, with DRL? the next stage up is moving lights? then after that full LED headlight like you get on a S8 for example?

    love the pan roof on white, shame its only a single sun roof, think you should wrap the back half of the roof in gloss black to give the same appearance of the 8P model pan roof. Even considered gloss blacking my whole roof a while back.

    yea i like the roof, wrapping the back bit could work.

    can the roof rails be retro fitted does anyone know?

    yes though I think the a8 lights are the next gen matrix led lights, so I think its

    xenon, with DRL as standard
    "follow me" xenon lights
    s3 full LED headlights - i think these adjust to conditions and location bit only if you have tech pack with audi connect selected

    full matrix led headlights only available on the s8

    should be but ill bet it will cost and I think the roof lining has to be removed so youd be in danger of damaging or creasing a fairly fragile item - if you are thinking about it and its not too late id order them - or you could get a cheap larger 2nd load lugger car

    The 2 parts of the Pan roof does cover about 2/3 of the roof. Front part slides and tilts rear is fixed. Looks Black on lighter cars and if you want a total black roof you may need to consider paint or wrap. Or as we have done on our order and last three 8Ps go all Black. I have to agree the 2/3 black look does appear a bit odd on White/Red cars in particular.

    Back in 2008 when a car was available with no bars dealer offered to fit for the option cost. Don't think it can be that difficult even though the roof lining will have to be at least part removed to access.

    Not sure if I'd ever use them, just wondering if they finish the car off so to speak.... Still un-decided about the black styling pack

    I think the rails do, but its definitely a marmite thing

    re: black sysling - see if you can find a demo car google some pics where the car has been done

    or seek out a demo car that has had it done - might be a difficult hunt though

    black is nice when clean. Had black in the past and its just hard work.
    i think i spotted the same colour in the showroom yesterday but on a SQ5 - at 52k it looked stunning!

    I agree, black isn't the easiest colour to keep clean. I have a black polo gti at the moment and when it's clean it looks great, but that isn't very often.

    I will be getting brilliant black on the S3, as one I don't like paying extra for paint and two when it's shiny you can't beat the pop and reflection off a non metallic car.

    My plan of attack to try and minimise swirl / haze / water marks is to once collected from the showroom head straight down to a local detailer and get a stage 1 machine polish then have Opti-Coat Pro applied (ceramic clear coat). This will cost £400 and will be hopefully a lot better then the autoglymn lifeshine products the dealers are pushing on to customers. I will then follow this up with a weekly snow foam and towel drying.

    Here is the blurb regarding Opti-Coat if you haven't heard of it (no I don't work for Opti-Coat)

    Opti-Coat (Opti-Guard) is a hard wearing, aftermarket, ceramic clear coat for superior resistance to scratching (9H) and chemical etching from environmental impacts. It provides permanent protection for all factory paints, and can also be applied to exterior glass, metal and hard plastic surfaces.

    Opti-Coat is not a wax or sealant like other products on the market. It is a ceramic clear coating very similar to factory type clear coats. A layer of Opti-Coat measures approx. 2 microns in thickness, or about 100 times thicker than your typical wax or sealant. Unlike paint protection sealants such as PTFE, Nano Sealants, GlassPlexin that degrade over time and are easily removed through washing with water or chemicals, Opti-Coat does not degrade and cannot be removed by chemicals such as heavy duty truck wash or even caustic degreasers. It is totally resistant to these chemicals and produces a permanent film that is chemically bonded with the factory paint layers. Opti-Coat is effectively the vehicles new outer clear coat. It is far more resistant to chemical etching than factory clear coats and far more resistant than competing paint protection sealants. The 2 micron layer also provides a thick buffer between any damage and the factory paintwork.

    Guys after much thinking and negotiating, I have ordered my S3 Saloon!


    I ordered:


    Estoril Blue
    Stronic gearbox
    Tech Pack
    SS Seats
    Comfort pack
    Adaptive cruise
    Front and rear sensors
    Audi sound system (thanks to advice from guys on the forum!)
    LED lights
    Folding mirrors
    Privacy glass
    Tyre Sensor
    Boot mat


    build week 12 which is early April I think delivery, can't wait. I got to take out an stron S3 SB before I signed as they'd only had the manual before and I was amazed, what a machine! Gearbox really suits the engine and car, nice and relaxed when you want it, but properly rapids responds when you floor it!

    Also big thanks to advice on discounts. I used car wow and used a good quote from there to negotiate 5% from Cambridge audi. They said before I started that they had given no discount at all on all the S3's they had sold so far, but after some discussion and showing them what kings Lynn were offering they went off for 20 mins and came back with an offer! So pleased

    Awesome mate, yours should be one of the first customer cars to turn up. Estoril on the saloon should look great

    I don't get all this myth about Black being a difficult colour to keep clean! I assume folks mean keeping it LOOKING clean! In any event I don't find it a problem. I ensure that our cars are well protected and cleaned really thoroughly 4/5 times a year. Then every week or so use the two bucket wash method first shampoo then clean water, chamois and e cloth. Sometimes use Diamond shine which is great. Takes no time at all and our Phantom Black cars always look pretty good.

All subjective.
