    again I will keep everyone updated when and what has been done upon deal completion

    Let's hope that as well as the new car, they also threw in some other 'freebies' for all the hassle that it has caused you. Enjoy.

    To the OP ...Sounds like you got a result :-) And credit to you for holding off losing your temper (as you mentioned you have a short temper) or naming the dealer and causing a potential s**t storm until you had made attempts to sort it out amicably - which you seem to have done ... Probably always best to stand back, take stock and work out a plan of action ...M

    Didn't get as far as Audi UK mate, the franchise manager has dealt with it amicably now...... So I guess I'm fortunate in that respect as iv heard of others having to battle back and forth for weeks with Audi UK ect when they have had issues......

    Finally a franchise manager who can actually do the job. Glad everything has worked out. I spent 10 months complaining about my first A4 (back in 1995) and ended up going to Audi UK to get it sorted.

    Thanks mark!

    Yeh has been there being fully detailed for a week inside and out, looks brilliant in the sun. I have to say the brand new q3 I had as a courtesy car was covered in scratches too. Good old JCT600 for you, must sell a lot to the partially impaired or something.

    Well, I'm currently in hamburg in the a3!

    Drove to Paris , then Brussels , then cologne and now in hamburg . I must say I'm very impressed with the car (2.0 tdi s line) ...... Cobbles in Paris , shocking roads in Belgium and fantastic autobahns in Germany the car has excelled. Anyone questioning the comfort of the s line suspension on journeys is stupid. Handles great, comfy, responsive my only quarm minor is the power could be a little more and would be perfect.

    I will upload pictures of a SAFE 130mph on the Germany highway, didnt push any further . ( my partner was photographer) .

    The sat nav is quick, responsive, simple.... I have used it for everything from routes to hotels and parking. Simplicity :-)

    I really reccomend the car, I will post some pics when I return ,just waiting for my mrs to get ready before we go out so got a spare 50 odd minutes.

    Going to Berlin next and then Zurich then home.

    I'm back from Europe with some pics, not the pictures I would of liked but you can't park your car outside the louvre or the Eiffel Tower .....they don't let you :-(.

    seen some awesome stuff and cars whilst there, just took me 4 hours to clean the car though after 2000 miles of hard driving. You could rent an r8 / lambo/ Ferrari for €89 euro in Paris for


    some cheap alcohol ..... Normally like £16 in Asda



    seen this bad boy in Lidl car park:


    very confused at a German car wash.... :-s


    after pressing all the buttons on it I got it kind of clean.....




    this guy flashed me out the way on an autobahn lol, Peugeot 300 classic


    road tested on autobahn people were still overtaking and flashing to get out the way, including a van. Us Brits are slow it would seem.



    the German roads are fantastic , so quick to get everywhere , not as congested as ours. Anyone considering making this trip or similar just do it. I really enjoyed it and so did my partner, great fun and put 2000 miles on my car just broke it in nicely.
