    Wow, I bet you are excited. How long have you been waiting since your order? And how have you kept sane, not thinking about it very day? Lol

    Ruthus_1,
    Good choice of colour and the sunroof is great!

    About to drive 400 miles today up to Scotland, long way but I'm looking forward to the drive in my A3!

    Well thought I'd ordered it in December but a fax was not recieved or something so officially it was the 6th February! Haven't really kept sain to be honest just gone on and on and on about it to my bf, family and friends lol!
    oh and yes the glacier white with pano sunroof is a really fab combination IMO! I saw the Quattro that did the rounds which had the same and had to have it!

    Very different to what I've gone for but the glacier/panoramic/privacy combo does look good. I notice that two of the first people on the forum this morning are picking up cars today. Couldn't sleep eh?

    Sounds like you have had a fair wait for you pride and joy to arrive. Will look forward to see any pics you post on the forum. Good luck tomorrow and I'm sure you will have the "Audi grin"!

    Thank G-d, you finally made it Ruthus. For a while i thought your car had been shipped over on a slow boat from China.

    Very pleased that your wait is now finally over.

    You will certainly enjoy today and most importantly, you will enjoy the car as it is a pleasure to drive!

    Kind regards,
    Steve
