    Smile Just ordered my SB 1.8TFSI

    Finally! It's now official.

    A3 Ambition (sporty version) 1.8 TFSI 180 HP 7 step S-tronic.

    Brilliant Black (gonna be foiled the day it gets in)

    Extras:
    Flat bottomed multifunction 3-spoke(?) sports leather steering wheel with flappy gear pedals
    No model and technologi description on the back
    Sunroof
    Advanced Key
    Polished window trims
    Door mirrors - Electrically adjustable, foldable and heated
    Tire pressure warning light
    Audi parking system plus with park assist
    B&O soundsystem
    Reversing camera
    Connectivity package which contains: Audi music interface, bluetooth interface, navigation and a extra SD cardreader
    Aluminium interior
    Interior lighting package
    Business package plus which contains: Audi phone box, light and rain sensor, middle arm rest and heated front seats
    Lightpackage which contains: Xenon plus incl. LED rear lights, high beam assistent and automatic dimming rearview mirror
    cruise control

    Living in Denmark has it's pros and cons..... one thing being the price!

    All in all the total cost of the car is = 555.740,70 which is in GBP = £63.755,86 (which is what 2 cars in the UK)

    Production week is 35.

    So hopefully, I can get a decent price for my 2006 Audi A3 1.6 when it comes.

    So thrilled!

    I'll post pictures once I get it foiled (dunno which colour yet, advice is accepted)

    You only live once!

    I wanted the 1.8 TFSI, but here in Finland it is not available until August at the earliest, and that was when I ordered my 8V SB back in early November last year! Plus, the 1.8 was only available with quattro package which pushed it way out of my budget. By the way, nice color choice, I have the same

    In for a penny in for a pound. Just was rather surprised at the equivalent cost in Denmark. Perhaps the nordic countries are plugging the gap in their finances from those iffy bankers in Iceland. ;-)

    Salaries on average in Denmark will at least be double the average in the UK so will help cushion the increased cost but I recall that income tax rates are rather hefty to here. I'm stopping there. Off topic.

    Anyway, great spec you have gone with Quarz.

    Just to clarify:

    Tax rate on a car in Denmark: 180% of the import price the dealer paid
    Tax rate of our income: 42%
    Average income in Denmark per year: £29.000

    Retarded, and the reason is, we don't produce any cars in Denmark....... so we get punished.

    But all in all, I'm quite happy with the specc, and punching that start button for the first time....... ohh lord!

    We use to have something like 100% car tax here in Finland, thankfully it's lowered quite a bit from that now. There's 24% VAT plus taxes based on engine size and CO2 emissions. I believe it's in the range of about 30-40% total taxes on a new car, although I didn't calculate it for my SB. The taxes really go up quick on CO2, I believe over 120g/km you start to really feel it.

    Not if they still have to pay the import/registration/emissions etc taxes.

    When we imported a cmax into Italy, the taxes were ridiculous, a 400 euro tax for absolutely sweet fa, let alone registration costs & everyother cost after that & they say Italy has financial problems, yeah right.

    Same here, the buyer would still need to pay all local taxes/registration fees that cars here in Finland have on them. Plus shipping costs. You can buy older cars from within Europe and import them to Finland cheaper, but you still have to pay some taxes. I don't remember the age of the car where the lower taxes apply, but it is 5 or 6 years old minimum I believe.

    So nice, you are living in Denmark...... You don´t want to know the price of my 1.8 TFSI quattro s-line over here in Norway

    Why did you not order the windows already dark from the factory and foil them yourself?

    Anyway congratulations.

    Would be interesting to see some pictures of the process when you do that.

    Why : Original paintjob looks brand new in 3,4,5 years time = better sales price.

    Colour: dark blue pearlscent with a metallic spark.

    It's getting done by proffesionels, so I can only give you pictures of the final product. but before and after

    Ok, would be nice to see how it looks like.

    But anyway do you think the sales price will increase after some years as much as you pay for the foiling?

    What does such a full foiling cost approximately...... and what will it cost the take the foil away again?

    I pay DKK 9.000 and as far as I calculate, the investment can about double.

    People look at the paintjob first, to see for any wear and tear and how the seller treated the car. The wrapping takes the beating from stones, scrathes etc.

    9.000 DKK including work and foil, that not too bad. I would have expected much more.
