    How many miles on the clock? Could make more bhp once the engine loosens up.

    About 360 but shouldn't make much difference to power output, it is what it is.

    Dyno readings are very much dependent on the type of dyno used and the operator who uses them , so i would not be overly concerned .

    These are all questions for Shark Performance as I'm not a dyno operator!
    It's a Bapro dyno and they've been using it a long time on lots of different cars.

    our skoda vrs tdi produced 179bhp in standard form (184ps) and 226bhp on sharks dyno, and an additional 110nm of torque..

    either way I always look at the % increase rather then the figures themselves

    It is all relative, the car was down on power as standard which may be down to a vast array of things. Fact is it gained 16.5% or there abouts so a car pulling the claimed 300bhp would in theory pull 350bhp. A good figure in my opinion.

    Do we have to use super unleaded in the new S3? Or is it just recommended. Does it make a difference?

    98 octane will get you further and burn cleaner with better combustion giving you more power than 95 in my mind its well worth the few extra $$$$

    Well as I understand it Week 1 starts 30th December 2013 - I'm currently unconfirmed at Week 5 - 27th January so week 8 would be 17th February so late March to early April but alot depends on when built etc - Could be built 1st day, straight onto the train at Ingolstadt (they have their own train at the factory) to the docks and boat could be leaving next day and so on so probably could get that down to 3 weeks in reality

    Well I've just had a couple of hours with an S3 loaner with S Tronic... far nicer in the S3 than in A5's and 7's I've tried recently.. really seems to suit the car.. but I am happy with my manual (it is too late to change anything now anyway!)
    SOLD 0201204 8P March 2011 Black Edition 2.0Tdi170 Sportback quattro..lots of bits... Others in the Garage......
    Arrived 1 March 2014 ..Phantom 2014 8V S3 Sportback. lots of bits, Pano roof, Tech Pack.TPMS, WOW ;-)

    Loving it!!Actually, last Sunday I was in a queue of traffic at some lights, an Estoril / deep blue RS5 pulled up next to me (didn't see him at first) I just heard his horn beep, looked round and he pointed at the car and gave me the "ok" sign with his hand nodding...I mouthed "really? have you seen your f*****g car??" and he just laughed...It was stunning, and felt great to get a compliment from an RS driver!Black is nice and will always look good clean, but it's on the stealth side and makes the car look smaller and less aggressive imo, I guess I like to stand out a bit given the already subtle shape of the S3..Stop worrying, you've made a good choice!

    I was going to order Monsoon to start with, but I'm glad my missus talked me out of it and into Glacier! Think the darker colours don't make it stand out enough and nothing says 'flash git' like a bright white car lolI had the nod from a guy in a V10 R8 the other day!

    Agreed!The great thing about Glacier is that it is alot more subtle than the old Ibis, yet remains the best colour in the range for contrast AND showing off the cars lines!Keeping it clean in this greasy weather though - pointless

    Yep mine's been cleaned once in the last 2 weeks, no point whatsoever! I am well impressed with the way it shows all the lines in the body, they do stand out.

    Ben at Shark has been trying to talk me into getting some new wheels, I must admit some 19" BBS CH-R's in black would look porno!Don't think the wife would be too happy about that when I've just blown £30k+ on a new car lol

    My cousin who bought my last 8P Ibis white S3 has just put them on his car (18" though) or at least some very similar, and they do look amazing!!Changing the wheels on this new car was not like me at all, i'm usually Mr Standard when ot comes to S cars, but i felt the standard 18" S3 alloys very underwhelming when they are not showroom clean. If you are ever up in the Yorkshire area let me know and i will show you how well 19's lend themselves to the S3. I'd say buy your wife some new shoes - then you can get your cars' new shoes!!

    they said it's almost locked down already in terms of changing it.... That quick?
    if it comes earlier then great but would prefer to hold off til march I think
    how long could the dealer hold the car back for?

    I wish I'd kept the standard wheels instead of paying £395 for the 10 spoke titanium wheels then it would be easier to justify changing them! I thought they were the best looking of the lot though.
    Hmm they'd have to be expensive shoes and again tricky to justify when we've got a 4 month old baby too!!

    First time i have seen your spec Giles! I bet the parade red leather will team up very nicely with the red S3 logo's in and outside of the car!!

    I certainly hope so mate! Wasn't sure what to expect with the parade red but really liked it in the Bolton demo that I drove, didn't find the red over bearing so went for it, just looks sporty to me. Hadn't thought about the logo's but yes, you're right. Just the bloody wait now!! Lots of new pics on the forum over Xmas would be good so when I've had a few too many ales I can remember what's waiting to be delivered in 2014!!
    Ordered: Glacier white S3 SB, pano roof, C0Z alloys, parade red leather, tyre pressure monitor, through load, technology pack, privacy glass, interior light pack, folding door mirrors, adaptive cruise, audi sound system, phone box, parking system plus, aly roof rails, light & rain sensors, xenon plus headlights.
