    Still phone camera for now I'm afraid.
    I've tried to do a couple of vids for the noise but they don't come out very well. Tomorrow ill be going through a tunnel so that should help

    Loving the car so far, no options that I wish I had gone for.

    In regards to the black trim option, when it came out I thought I was going to be annoyed I didn't have it but seeing it in the flesh I love the aluminium look so very happy I've not got it.
    Loving look of it too, ditto on chrome, awaiting November sportback plus chrome rails. Did you go with standard suspension? I thought about magnetic ride but left off in end. How is it over poor surfaces etc. Photo of seat backs appreciated when time permits. Thanks for posts so soon after delivery.

    I went for the standard suspension which I think is great. I've come from a type r which is back breaking so what I'm finding comfortable others may find hard. I think I've made the right decision on it.

    Ill sort those photos prob tomorrow now

    Suspension choice sounds like the right choice for me then too then, also used to firm suspensions and no real complaints (a4 sline, subaru wrx and early skateboard like Alfa Gtv). Some reviews questioned what standard setup would be like in uk. I'll settle for your assessment as great! Thanks.

    Every time I see a bump coming I'm expecting a bang and it doesn't happen, I'm not looking for a sofa like ride so I'm happy. like I said though I can see it being too firm for some people's taste.

    I'm with you on that, in the photos I to be honest don't see anything special but they are so much nicer when they are I'm front of you.

    This car is the best gamble I've ever taken

    I love this car!! I can't fault it in any way. Ok if I was going to be really picky I would say there is not enough storage compartments in it.

    Does anyone know if there is anyway for me too switch xenons for European driving? Or is it a dealer job? I've looked in mmi but nothing in there.

    i expect there might be a lever under the bonnet, but would like to know the answer as planning to drive mine over to France middle of September.

    From what I remember from an earlier thread about xenons there is no adjustment for continental driving as the beam is 'flat' and therefore doesn't need switching from left to right.

    I think you are right, good memory!!

    Just hope I don't have to explain to French traffic police so think I might just do as I do now and stick a small piece of black electrical tape to each headlight in a random spot.

    There is a setting from the main MMI menu under 'Car > Settings > Exterior lights > Lights for driving on the right' for changing the lights over but admittedly this may be just a part of the adaptive headlights package which I have.

    Ok I've read the manual harder and it does say about it. Adaptive xenons need to be adjusted via mmi, all others need no adjustment. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1376853505.047022.jpg

    Dylock fantastic car!!!

    I have a strange request but you'd do me a huge favour if you could help me out.

    Could you check on your car (usually a sticker on the driver door) and take a picture of where it specifies compatible tire sizes for the car.

    I'm asking because i also ordered an s3 and i'll get it at the end of winter and would like to buy winter tires for it prior to receiving it.

    i'd appreciate it greatly.

    A few months ago, Danny's mrs said to him "you will be sleeping in the b***** car, cause you are talking about it that much". That did make me laugh.
