    Yes I've compared it to a mk6 golf with the Dynaudio system, and the b&o blows it out of the water. Most obvious difference is volume and power, but other factors are much clearer bass and a better balanced soundstage.

    I've not compared it to an after market system, but I should imagine it would cost you best part of £750 to find something comparable anyway.

    The first song I 'll be playing should give the system a real good workout (skip to 45secs for the drop).


    Sub Focus - Tidal Wave Feat. Alpines (Flosstradamus Remix)

    I'm still about a fortnight away from getting my S3 so if anyone is interested in giving it a try, let me know how the B&O copes!

    Awesome... thanks for the reply. Our S3's haven't arrived here in Australia yet so haven't even seen/driven the car yet!

    Coming from A3 and A7 with Bose and a couple of A5s with B&O I was very disappointed with the standard system and the £250 'Audi ' system we had to go B&O . I think it is sad that Audi rip us off with the cost of options in the uk. Look at the cost of the Pan Roof on French and German configurations. Hill hold free across the EU apart from uk. May be a good earner but hacks folks off when they find out.

    Hill hold is not free here in Finland either, it costs 147€ = 123£
    I don't know what do you pay for the other extras but here's a few more examples from Finland:
    B&O = 1385€ = 1160£

    Panoramic roof = 1667€ = 1396£

    S-Line, only exterior = 1765€, but if you want the S-Line sport package(interior upgrade also, which means seats, steering wheel..etc) which is the one everybody has in UK, I assume, it will be in total 1765€ + 3628€ = 5393€ = 4517£.

    That sounds like a rip off for me.

    It's only a rip off if you have to pay it. Nobody is forcing anybody to buy hill hold assist... I didn't. Audi has a business to run and I'd imagine that they make most of their profits from selling options. You can't blame them for charging us if we're the ones willing to pay! It makes good business sense & it's the way the world works.

    You could argue McDonald's rip us off for charging £3 for a burger that costs them pennies to make. You could argue my own business rips people off by selling bean bags for £100 that cost me £8 in materials. The fact is though I, just like Audi, have to make back the money for the initial r&d costs as well as the costs associated with buying very expensive machinery and so on...

    Yes hill hold might be included for free on a focus or something similar but the overall build quality of the car is miles apart and quality does cost. Hell, I reckon the Audi comes with a bunch of tech that you wouldn't find standard on a Ferrari.

    Paullowther, sure I understand that. It's their business strategy.

    I'm just saying that it feels a little bit unfair, if you compare prices between germany and finland for example.
    B&O in germany = 790€
    B&O in finland = 1385€
    Pan roof in germany = 950€
    Pan roof in finland = 1667€

    Extras are about 75% more expensive here, of course there's also taxing system which affects the price.

    And you're right, nobody is forced the buy those extras, but they are so niiice..

    Aha I figured it's rather obvious that polystyrene beans and a roll of uncut cotton don't cost that much! It's the machines that are required to cut the fabric and the labour that's costly!

    Here's hoping this link works for people.

    Thanks for all the suggestions and I've tried to incorporate as many as I could find. There is a wide mix of genres as I enjoy most kinds of music apart from shouty screamy stuff!

    My favourite artists may have 2 or 3 songs featured but other than that there isn't much repetition!

    People are still welcome to remind me of more songs to add in. As it stands I have 78 tracks lasting 5 hours. Should last me the journey back!S3 by Paul Lowther on Spotify

    amazing, is there anyway we can download these without having to buy individually. I don't have spottily mobile, is this how you're planning on playing these tracks on the system?

    I think I want to download to my SDHC card.

    You'll need spotify mobile to be able to play these unfortunately, £9 or whatever it is a month will do the job.

    Then what you can do is save them locally to your device so you don't need a data connection to play the tracks, effectively works like downloading but you won't be able to put them on a card unless you buy them!

    I love spotify, it's saved my thousands over the years!

    For me these have made my hairs stand up so far but I suppose it's all personal :-

    (1) Tiesto Tear in the open (this is really good up loud)
    (2) Fleetwood mac everywhere
    (3) Black eyed peas boom boom pow

    Spotify 'Extreme' offers 320kbps tracks which makes them virtually indistinguishable from CD so yes, you'll be able experience the best the b&o has to offer! That comes with Spotify premium.

    Anything off the Bob Marley album Legend.. The base is incredible, honestly. Whether you like his music or not it's worth a listen as the B&O system loves this album.
