    How many times did you alter your order once placed?

    I'm trying to judge when I should start feeling guilty about changing my order all the time.

    So, as a bit of fun, how many times and for what reasons have you changed your a3/s3 order once you first placed it?

    I'm currently on 4 changes, possibly looking at a 5th today for colour.

    added connect to tech pack £300
    added hill hold assist £90
    added lane assist + variable high beam £450 + £75
    added front parking sensors (park system plus) and deleted no smoker pack £250

    total (so far) £1165!

    This forum has a lot to answer for!!
    Build Week 1: Panther Black S3 SB S-Tronic, black nappa, anthracite alloys, comfort pack with adaptive cruise and parking plus, active lane assist, adaptive xenons with variable range control and auto high beam, technology package HIGH with connect, B&O, tyre pressure warning, fold/dim/dip/heat mirrors, reversible boot liner, extended mono pur interior, privacy glass, hill hold assist, LED interior light pack, electric lumber support.

    Once for me.

    Changed from Estoril to Panther
    Added Black Styling
    Added Black Inlays
    Added Extended Mono.


    Tried also however to add super sports seats but was too late (not too fussed about this though, saved me a tidy £700 odd)

    Once so far - Hold Assist and Dimming Door Mirrors. Have specced virtually everything else except Mag Ride and the 'assistance' pack as I'm not keen on having all that tech interfering (although ACC crept in).

    He lied for whatever reason. You can always change your order up until the point when your order is locked by the factory because it's close to being produced.

    Ok I'm starting to feel bad now... I haven't actually removed anything (except the no smoker pack) so maybe it's just me adding stuff in secret from swmbo...

    Zero, because I found this forum few months before I ordered so read and checked EVERYTHING in advance.

    It did mean I added extras to original planned spec. before I ordered,
    £1500 ish worth of extra options (Pano, Audi sound system, Interior lights, Hill hold etc.) by being tempted by the reviews,
    Oh and upgraded sport to S Line £1650 ish extra,
    Oh and went for 1.4 tfsi to C.O.D. £850 extra,
    Oh and changed for 3 door to sportsback £620.
    Oh and 4 year warantee and 30000 mile service pack £644 !
    'edit' oh and pearlescent paint £525

    This FREE forum has cost me £ 5789 ish extra (Bl**dy Hell ! , never added it up like that before,)
    But it help me get £1400 ish discount (wouldn't have known possible after first conversation with salesman, if it wasn't for this forum)



    Warning : this forum is Seriously bad for you wallet !
    (but might save you a bit back and will definitely put a bigger smile on your face when you get your car and keep it there for longer !)

    Exactly!! Why did I register on here?!

    Oh yes, I remember, it was to give me the kick up the rear I needed to spec the car correctly and without compromise.

    The only thing the forum doesn't do is help with paying for it all!

    All this talk about alterations is getting me thinking...

    Do I want Tech + Connect?
    Do I want supersport seats?
    Do I want through load and armrest
    Do I want driver assist?

    Answer... Of course I do BUT are they worth the extra


    Connect appears not to work well and costs unknown!
    Super seats... Mrs likes Alcantara option not available on SS
    Through load let me know next week if we've found the current through load useful
    Driver assist.... Am I completely helpless???

    Once. Today I added the Audi Music System. Just when I thought I had it all sorted, I read a comment on here and before I knew it, an email was winging its way to the salesman.

    Changed once, added lumbar support and LED lights.

    Other options have been considered, but with Audi I think you need to either have loads of cash or some control and know when to stop.

    Interesting, I was also told I could not change the order. I was thinking of changing Amalfi White to Red.

    Make that 4 times now.

    1. Added hold assist
    2. Then Audi music system
    3. Then tyre pressure monitoring system
    4. And finally due to this cold snap, heated seats have been added too!

    Bloody hell! I should have just bought an S3

    I added heated seats on a bit of a whim (all pre-order when I was finalising the spec to myself), but I'm so glad I have them now things are getting cold. My car after a couple of minutes is an incredibly comfortable place to be in this weather!

    TBH, it's not something that I have selected as a luxury, but more of a necessity. I suffer from cold hands/ feet and have read that heating the core will vastly improve my condition. So an S3 doesn't even have TPM, Audi music system and hold assist as standard? I thought it had all the bells and whistles such as a B&O stereo.

    Those who made changes, if you already had a build week at the time did the change of spec affect the build week?
    The only thing I would have added was hold assist but I was afraid even a little thing like that could change the build week.

    so you are a fellow Raynaulds sufferer then. I too suffer badly and you will love heated seats. If we had the option of the aux petrol heater in this country I'd buy that too. Had it on a range rover and is excellent, as was the heated steering wheel too!

    keeping your core warm is the key to managing - I presume you own a decent down filled coat?

    i am no Doctor, but S3 engine and B&O might get your blood pumping a bit faster and help circulation !
    That would be a great excuse to buy.
    Sorry I had to have a S3 for medicinal purposes !

    My wife suffers from very cold hands and she always says her ultimate luxury would be a heated steering wheel. I understand Audi do offer this in some of the Scandinavian countries but not in the UK.

    Now that would be an extra I'd go for. From around Sep - Mar, I can't feel my fingers when driving as they are like sticks of ice.

    As far as I know they offer it on the a6 upwards. It really is nice to have.

    Ever thought about heated motorbike gloves in the car? If it gets really cold I use mine until my hands warm up and the car is up to temperature

    Never thought of using motorbike gloves but I have been looking into battery powered heated gloves. Wearing normal thermal gloves has zero effect apart from making me look like a prat at the lights!
