Well the deed is done - ordered our new S3 today at Derby Audi. All I'll say is if you want a good deal go and see Sam, a top bloke who's been running their demo s3 as his own car for a while so knows it (and drives it!) well.
So, spec is
Brilliant Red (yes, solid colour) with black leather
comfort pack with adaptive cruise and pdc rear only
door mirrors auto dim/fold
interior lighting pack
non smoker pack
reversible boot mat
technology pack (not high)
tyre pressure indicator
thats the lot - it's ACACGXQG config code.
Should find out what build slot next week sometime. March delivery expected.
I also got to see a brilliant red A4 next to a Misano a3. Very VERY similar but the Misano is just a touch more orange IMHO. I'm happy with the brilliant red.
