Well after nearly 6 months waiting for my first ever Audi after coming from an Alfa 147 GTA that I had for 8 years from new my new A3 sportback 2.0 TDI S Line was handed over to me on Saturday morning.
The Spec is A3 sportback 2.0 tdi Sline with comfort pack, privacy glass, debadge, SD satnav and B&O in Scuber Blue.
When I saw it in the showroom for the first time when it was uncovered I was amazed at how good it actually looked it looked every bit the part that I had hoped for.
I was really unsure about the color as I had not seen one in Scuba blue and everyone having them in Daytona grey or white it seems and I really thought about changing the colour a few times.
It looks amazing and will upload some photos today for you all.
After collecting it I got home to see I had snow all over the front and salt all up the side of the car and then had to go to work with it. The sport suspension is perfect it holds the road really well and is not too harsh at all just right for a family car I guess and is just perfect for the UK roads now with all the winter pot holes. The Alfa used to be really bad over bumps knocking and jarring me to death.
On my 30 mile motorway trip to work I had chance to enjoy the B&O and must say it is much better and clearer than my Bose in the Alfa the noise on concrete is a little loud from the continental tyres but ok on tarmac but is easily dround out with some tunes.
After 2 days of driving it just seems a dream to drive and is so comfortable to drive and everyone that I see loves the car especially the color despite being filthy and love the screen and quality of the finish.
I was cursing last night from work and have around 130 miles on it now and was averaging 53mpg at just under 70 so economy is very good for a tight engine.
I will keep you all posted on economy this week as off to derby from Kent on Wednesday.
Now off to clean it
