Just thought I would post some first thoughts after one day with my A3 1.4 COD Petrol Manual Tech pack with Audi Connect.
Top line is I am ABSOLUTELY delighted.
Drives beautifully and am getting used to the Technology (which I love)
Embarrassing moment this morning when I could not work out how to disengage the Parking Brake (never disengaged it before because you just drive and it disengages). Had to reverse out of the drive and would not move!!!
AAAHH, but then realised you push switch down firmly.
Took me a while to get Adaptive Cruise control to work, but now have it working and I am pleased (although still a little in awe to it and waiting for it to fail and me crash into car in front)
Audi Connect is working, I had issues thinking I had to re-enter the Audi Pin, but I then realised it is logged in and you ignore the LOGIN option (because already logged in)
Took me a while to get Facebook and Twitter activated, as My Audi and Audi Connect in the car appeared to want it activated in the other one first.
Once they were connected, the option on the Web MyAudi enabled me to activate it there and then I could do it in the car. Had to re-enter the AudiConnect PIN.
So far have used 84 MB in and sent 11 MB. Will update this every now and then because I know this is a question many ask.
I am using Street View and just started using FB and Twitter this morning.
The 3 SIM appears a good option.
Used the heated seats and the Air cushion which blows warm air on your neck this morning and that was great.
The dealership gave me the new Green iPhone 5 cable (which they said had just arrived)
I also go a full tank of fuel, an Audi Ceramic Mug, Cleaning items and Oil.
A lovely touch which was very much appreciated was the Bottle of wine from the Sales Associate himself (they had recently been on a holiday in France which we spoke about when I was test driving a car many weeks ago).
One thing I must see if I can get sorted is that the voice controls are de-activated on the Cabriolet. They were on my A4 and I had to get them to enable them. Will ask for my A3. I hope it is possible, can't see why not.
I took a phone call when driving at 60 with lots of road noise and the roof down and the person I was talking to said the sound quality was great. It was not so good with the A4 system.
Fuel economy coming in today was 46.7 MPG which was great. Yesterday was averaging 30, so will post those figures also.
Enough for now, must do some work to pay for my indulgence..
