    I suppose.....still seems like forever! It was due to be delivered in February (!) but apparently Audi bought some factory in Europe, allowing more S3's to be made.......pushed it forward by 3 months! :rockwoot:

    I found myself behind a sprint blue one in traffic this morning. As Tony the tiger would say "They're great!"

    Thanks for all the comments guys. Totally loving the car so far. Compared to my Type R its in a completely different league. Everything feels so much more solid and tactile. Turbo woosh and exhaust noise is addictive! Camera i used was a Ricoh Capiol R4, just a wee cheap digital jobbie.

    To hell with running it in I've been giving it some right from the start! Though only when oil is fully warmed and not above 5000 rpm. :laugh:

    I notice you went for the rubber floor mats......good plan!!

    Our dealer has an offer on at the moment....front and rear rubber mats, rear boot mat and 4 mud guards for £200....I'm thinking we should go for it but have never seen mud guards on any S3's before.....not sure how it will look.

    don't worry I won't! Rubber mats are a must though.....not that anyone will be getting in to the car with their shoes on..... :)

    You sound as fussy as me. I have my girlfried tortured warning her to be careful getting in and out of the seats so she doesnt wrinkle the bolsters, parking miles away from shops so there are no cars anywhere near mine etc. Think this car might be the end of us!!! :)

    Yeah kinda figured they would but I guess telling people to be careful wont hurt. When I got it home the girlfriend asked me to take it over to her sister so she could have a look. O.K I said and off we go. Arrive at sisters workplace and she gets in and starts touching everything with her big bloody false tan covered hands! Then she parks herself half in/ half out of the car, right on top of the bolster, and starts yapping on to my girlfriend about what she got up to the night before! Needless to say a few choice words were growled as her... :asskicking:
