Ha, Ha, I do like an optimist!
On holiday at the moment so I thought I'd take a picture outside the lodge:
^ Looks very nice indeedy!
Audi S3 Saloon 2.0 TFSI quattro
Pearlescent sepang blue
Black fine nappa leather with silver stitching
19â 5 twin spoke star anthracite wheels
Parking system plus
Interior lighting pack
Light & rain sensor pack
Hill hold assist
Door mirrors folding
Audi sound system
Same colour as mine (arrived in Grimsby today and expecting delivery early days September); will look awesome.
But if it's being built wk 50 why on earth is it taking 3 months to deliver? It only takes the ship 24 hours to get to the UK from Emden then max 2 weeks to the dealer..
Just ordered my new car today
S3 Saloon (S-Tronic) in Brilliant Red with the following spec:
Black Alcantara seats
Comfort pack with adaptive cruise control and park system plus
Electrical folding and heated mirrors
Interior light pack
B & O sound system.
8% off from Aberdeen Audi.
Going to be a long wait until March.
Nice spec but privacy glass would look good with the red, no?
Yeah, thought about the privacy glass but i have a mate who knows a guy
Deleted, messing about with instagram....
It will be earlier..... I was told April, probably March and now estimating mid dec. I ordered 2 weeks ago.....
Looks like you're right about delivery time. In Aberdeen Audi yesterday to hand over A3 and was advised that it could be here early January. As much as i want it now, i've asked them to hold it till 1st March.
I'm sick of looking at spec sheets so thought I would just ask the people with the motor! Can anyone tell me if the front windscreen is heated on the S3 Saloon? It doesn't state anywhere I can find that it's standard and there is no option for it either! Cheers
Short answer - No, its not heated
Cheers for letting me know! Very suprised, you would think it was standard or at least an option!
Further to my earlier grumbles about long delays (S3 Saloon ordered end November 2013 and still not here)..
My car was down for wk 31 build / 1st September delivery.
It was in fact built wk 31 and I've been tracking its arrival but when I rang them last week to arrange delivery the dealer hedged and hedged but has now admitted that in error they sold my car to someone else back in June and changed all the specification.. So although the order I have had in since last November was built wk 31 it turns out not to be my car any more, although they forgot to tell me that. This is ineptitude on an epic scale and who would believe an Audi dealer would be capable of it?
They realised back in July what they had done and immediately found another car due for wk 35 build and changed its specification into mine so it should now be built and on its way; delivery end September/early October, although they've made such a massive pig's ear of it so far I'm not holding my breath...
And incidentally they have loaned me (free) an Audi RS Q3 to drive until my car arrives, so at least they are aware of their responsibilities. Be very wary if you order a car from Bolton Audi!
They found another car in their system which they are going to change? Does that mean someone else's order is going to be fudged? lol
Anyhow I put an order in today for delivery in March 2015, no build week but it's too early to tell:
S3 TFSI Quattro 4dr S Tronic Saloon
Pearl - Sepang blue
Hill hold assist
Electric adjustable/heated/folding door mirrors
Comfort pack – A3
Interior light pack - A3 Saloon
Technology pack - A3 Saloon
Fine nappa leather - Black with silver stitching
19" 5 arm wing design high gloss titanium alloy wheels
I see your in a simular boat to me, not long had your A3 but going for an S3.
What made you do that?
I'm planning on ordering mine in December!
That's what I wondered too.. Nothing would surprise me any more!
When you say S3 4-door I assume that's a saloon, otherwise you would have said '5-door'?
It is a great car, which is why I'm letting the dealer get away with it and haven't cancelled completely...
Yeh 4 door is a saloon, 5 door is hatchback
Ordered A3 2.0 Quattro sedan.
Glacier White with Black Interior.
Just managed another £220 discount on my order
Decided to take off reversing camera and add SD sat nav. Asked if they would cover the difference and they said yes
Glad i went and did it before dealer got broken in to at weekend.
Received email confirmation that ours is production complete so on schedule for early November delivery
E-mailed dealer today to see about adding privacy glass. Was quoted and extra £15/month over my 48 month PCP
Was told its because the interest rates have gone up since Q3 so said to leave as is. Effectively £720 for tinted windows, no thanks Audi.
Just e-mailed Aberdeen Audi, been assigned to build week 50 (8th December) looking like delivery mid January
OMG, only just seen this, guess where my car is coming from...
If you aren't aware of my problems, see the BW 41, 42, 43, 44 thread...
