    If you have the rain sensors and the parking sensors, surely the comfort pack can't be much more and you'll get cruise control as well?

    I think it was around £110 more for the pack. Didn't see the point as I drive mainly around town.

    So with this in mind I assume everyone agrees to go the extra £100 for the pack?

    If you can afford the extra, the ACC is awesome in my opinion. If you can't, standard cruise control is always a great bonus for motorway driving anyway.

    The only explanation I can come up with for £800 a month is a PCP over 1/2 years with no deposit and 50,000 miles PA!

    I've ordered an S3 and it's costing me £370 a month! That's with tech pack, comfort pack, led lights, B&0, black styling pack, privacy glass, interior light pack, extended mono finish & the most expensive crystal paint!

    it's just a simple 48 month credit by our bank like if you buy a house with no deposit
    car is ours and no mileage to respect
    instead of a PCP

    The S3 will have a higher residual so the monthly payments will be lower but the GFV (final optional payment) will be higher if you want to keep it afterwards

    PCP Optipns
    Have a look at Car Finance PCP Calculator
    I think Audi finance is around 6 % at the moment, I seem to remember 6.4, but this might be wrong
    I usually use a three years for a car doing 11k a year the gfv might b aroung 50% (very rough figure)

    This is far from an exact science from my perspective, I am by no way a finance person and I cant vouch for the accuracy, but it might help work a few things out for you, and its actually pretty close to my figures so it seems to be ok.



    Back to the OP, the confort pack is the best value item there. And its actually four things for get with it, Auto dimming mirror, light and rain sensor, cruise and rear parking sensors. Unlie others with the ACC I opted for the Parking system plus upgrade to the pack, sensors at the front as well, but the real bonus is a display on the screen showing all the sensors and how how the car is from any obsacle it detects.

    Good luck with the shopping, I changed my mind twice during the process.

    Pretty much why i spec'd it, for the optical. Would never use the front sensors tbh

    Was trying to skimp for the Sports seats, so dropped it. But then again, its the cost of a VCDS cable pretty much - swings and roundabouts

    Hi Paul, would you mind sharing the terms of your finance such as the deposit and the number of payments?
