    Only 4 weeks after paying deposit, picked up my new A3 today. Specs: 1.4TFSI manual, S Line, Glacier white, comfort pack, B&O. Have come from a 62 reg A5 black edition 1.8TFSI, and before that an 09 reg A5 2.0TFSI.

    Miss the extra power of the A5 and full leather seats, but the A3 feels a more nimble and the B&O is a lot louder. Also nice to have Bluetooth streaming which the A5 lacked.

    Contemplating fitting some Oz Supertourismo alloys in titanium finish, think I will stick with 18inch and use the tyres that came with the car. Any ideas what I could expect to sell the S Line alloys for without tyres? Had a browse on eBay but none to gauge prices on.

    Have also ordered some Hexis Matt black vinyl to wrap the window trims and got some leftover gloss vinyl to wrap the grill surround, may do that tomorrow if the weather is good.

    Will get some pictures up tomorrow once the sun comes out!

    Congrats on your new car!
    Why did you give up the A5 for the A3?

    Well only use the car at weekends so was hard to justify that amount of car sat on the drive 5 days a week! Plus just fancied a change, normal car ownership tends to be on average a year for me until I see something else I want! Sure I will be back in an A5 sometime though, possibly a soft top next
