    New 8v S3 - things to check

    Kinda frightening reading the threads. It's like things get delivered... half finished.

    So the obvious - check your options list is there.
    Check the 12v port is in the boot.
    Check the light is in the boot.
    Check the windscreen is accoustic.
    Check the B&O stereo isn't crackly.
    Check the sensor for the headlight assist is present and not capped off.

    What other flaws have we seen? ;-p

    If they allow you, drive it around the block and listen out for the 1.8/S3 Rattle.
