    Cool Another 63 plate countdown!

    After much stalking (!) on the A3 8V Forum I will hopefully be adding my name to the list of September registrations! I ordered back in May and when I sent off my private registration docs off to the dealer on Friday, it has finally sunk in that, I am indeed getting a shiny new car.

    Since Easter there has been much deliberations, having looked at a 1-Series and VW Golf, but the A3 was the clear winner. I ordered a A3 Sportback Sport, 1.4 TFSI CoD in Brilliant Red with Comfort Pack, SD Sat Nav and aluminium roof rails, deselecting Sport to SE suspension (kids get car sick v easy) and grey inserts in seats. 9% saving overall on list, so a pretty god deal, I think.

    My morale has been kept high with all the posts on the forum, with many thanks to moonlight (CoD discussions) and Karl Alesbury (Red SB Pics) to name but two and of course Sandra's top tunes!

    I will hopefully to take collection on 09 Sep - as long as DVLA only take 3 weeks to sort out my Reg.

    Looking forward to all the pics from those who are able to collect on 01 Sep. Not long left .......

    Hi a3soon, I have gone for sportback, 1.4 C.O.D. as well (Misano red though) so liking your choice.
    C.O.D. Seamed a really good balance of performance / economical / initial price / plus is 85 kg lighter than the 2 litre diesel (closest engine performance wise) so helps acceleration and handling a bit, but won't get mine till late in the year, so would be great to get your feed back in September and see a few pics.
    A3 sport back, Misano Red, S Line, 1.4 C.O.D. Manual, Panoramic Sunroof, Audi sound system, Folding mirrors, Interior lights pack, Non smoking, Delete Badges, Sports suspension, Hill hold & 2 year servicing & 4 year warrantee.

    Welcome to audi-sport.net, im sure you will fit in here just fine. Waiting for a new car can be such fun, lol. I will organise a countdown thread for you just shortly. We have a few collections coming up on the 1st sept and iirc you are the second to collect on the 9th so plenty of time for you to be looking out for the photo location. Hope you continue to enjoy the forum. x

    Better be careful there mate, with the rush job they did on your car, Audi might have missed a couple of options!!!! Lol.
    Tut tut Mark, that was just too funny. x

    Oppsss, sorry Sandra, just too hard to resist! A backhanded compliment to cemerson for the most options I have ever seen on a car.

    This thread got me wondering what the biggest cock up a car maker has made with an order! Maybe somebody got their car without the big audi badge on the front!


    I know for instance when my dad was due to take delivery of a shiny new jag xjs many a year ago it fell off of the delivery truck on its way to the dealer!
