There are a few of us now, that in a few months, will have had their 8V A3’s for a year, and thought this might be a good way of giving new owners an idea on what items to get, knowing what we love or wished we had spec’d. One of each to keep it simple, one thing you simply could not live without and one thing you are really kicking yourself for not getting.
Glad I spec’d – Panno Roof
it’s awesome!! use it all the time ( as long as it’s not raining ), hardly any wind noise on motorways in fact it’s the only sunroof I’ve ever had that I’ve not had to close when joining motorways, because of noise and that weird pressure noise thing!! And when closed and blind open makes the cabin very light which is great. Also doesn’t seem to affect mpg on long trips when open. Lastly if you're picking a glacier white s-line like mine it's looks great !!!
Wish I’d spec’d – adaptive cruise control.
or whatever it’s called. Have the comfort pack which comes with the standard cruise control, but on motorways if it could adapt to the flow of traffic which I understand it does, this would be bliss!!!!
