    That should equate to 8% of total price excluding otr charges. 2500 off pre vat you should get 3000 inc vat. If you aren't someone is being naughty! If the total discount is only pre vat you are only getting just over 6.5% discount!

    I've been saving 10% pre vat on rs4s so about 11k off with the £5k from Audi finance

    Discounts should be same off net as Post Vat (apart from OTR Charges) In my example above if the discount at the end is a monetary amount based on 8% of net (say £2500) it is not really 7%. The discount % should be taken off net figure and a resulting saving on VAT should also accrue.

    Audi discounts can be huge.. you could get over 26% off an A7 last year!

    Not quite depreciation free in my case .. circa £3k for 9 months, bargain nevertheless but depreciation now is about £750-£1000 a month however!

    Just got off the phone from Ben at Newcastle Audi.

    he said as far as he has been able to find out, there are no plans to drop estoril in the S3, S3 Sportback or S3 Saloon. he just got new brochures for the saloon and estoril is in that.

    still no confirmed build date except week 17 for mine though, only 15 or so more weeks to go then :wtf::banghead:

    My dealer just phoned. My car is built and has left the factory for the port! Woop! Dealer trying again to sell me supaguard protection but I'm wondering if I'm one of many on 1st March whether to bother as can't imagine they'll invest the correct time or effort to do it properly.... Any thoughts? Shall I get a local to do it instead?

    I'm going to book mine at a detailer once I have it. They'll wash it properly anyway and I want to get the gtechniq c1 crystal lacquer sealant stuff put on anyway. Wouldn't do myself as you need training.

    I had mine detailed at the dealership. Didn't want their guys touching the car...and told the dealer as much. In fairness to them they didn't put up any fuss and accomodated the detailer very professionally - access to utilities, indoor area.

    Detailer travelled down and spent a full day on the car. He confirmed that the Audi guys hadn't been near it, and sent me photos of the whole process. Had the Polish Angel Cosmic Glasscoat applied.

    I wouldn't say that as I do keep my cars clean and will be detailing it soon, but it's defo the cleanest it'll be this weekend what with all the sh**y weather!!

    A couple of points so far ........

    LED headlights are amazing and well worth the money

    Supersport Seats are also amazing, so much more comfortable than the standard seats and they look awesome!!
