Why twice the cost per month?? if you dont mind me asking.
Glad to hear you are collecting it soon, picked my black edition A4 on Monday, looks fantastic in Aruba blue. Hopefully get some pics up at the weekend.
The difference between the 140 & 170 when I ordered mine was only about £40 per month.
Likewise - it was that and the additional company car tax (another £40ish) that put me off the 170BHP
Mine is a private sale so i opted for the 170.
can the rear diffuser be removed/changed to fit a twin exahust, or does the rear bumper have to be changed completely?
At the time of ordering my car the 140bhp was around £68/mth whereas the 170 was around £130 /mth with Quattro at around £172 /mth. As you say the 140 bhp is 13% P11D value whereas the 170 is 17% P11D. Then the maintenance figs were higher on 170 too. I'm not knocking the 170 (or quattro's) but I didn't feel I could justify twice the monthy outlay for a bit more power and twin exhausts. I'm happy with my deal.
Nurse!.........he's out of bed again.
Ah I see, mine is a company car and i went for the 170 BE ordered June 10 been advised delivery will be end of April.

170 bhp Quattro (135 CO2) = 20% of OTR price currently at £25,750
thanks for the fix!
not long to wait now!
I got mine today! Pics to follow.
Just heard back today about mines, October delivery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You happy with it?
I'm sure it was worth the wait
This is a joke!
Hi Cmann78, thinking about ordering with Ibis White, look forward to seeing the pics. Its a toss between the white or lava. Many thanks

I eventually pick my car up in a few hours..
Ah... Now I understand..... and remember why I opted out of the Company Car scheme in 1995!! That is bonkers.
Finally, after what seems an age, i am a Black Edition Owner!!!! Absolutely loving it and the car is everything i hoped it would be. Thought i'd post some pictures below, hope they work!
Stunning car mate - bet you are grinning from ear to ear!!
The wait is always worth it in the end! The car is stunning
I gave mine a detail over the past two days, i'll get some new pictures up with my new pedals, mats and a clean looking exterior once I get some snaps
Great photos Matt... looks just like ours apart from Roof rails. We are greatly impressed with the 2011 BE Quattro SB having had the 2008 (S-Line) and 2005 (Sport) versions previously.
The Twin Exhausts make the rear look purposeful unlike the single job + they are bigger than the 2008 model.
Our dislikes are few. Sat Nav is pretty poor and the womens voice is dire... 'Prepare to arrive at a Roundabout' WTF what does she expect you to do? Clean your shoes and comb your hair! Our economy is pretty good so far 40.7 average over 441 miles. Shame the B* Government will not cut fuel costs (especially Diesel) as in the rest of the EU.
As advised, 1st pics of the new car - i've kept them quite small to keep load times quick.
Mileage on delivery:
and the mpg on the way into work this morning (not bad with only 119 miles on the clock!):
Nice to see plenty of people now picking up there cars, some great one on show
Wish I was getting that MPG
That was a mix of driving too - bit of town, bit of A/B road and about 50% motorway at the legal limit of course officer. I came home a different way (all dual carriage way and A road) and it touched 61mpg! What are you managing then Ibis?
not sure this will work but here goes.
MPG | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
Seriously what's changed with the picture uploading on here, i used to be able to do it :-/
anyway if this doesn't work i don't know lol..
65MPG got it to 65.6 but was trying to drive also...
I would also say if you got an Ibis get some, no loads of Wax on the front bumper, they chip something rotten.
seriously considering getting some of that film protection to cover it and help it out.
Not that, I'm getting just over 30 I think
I have piled the wax on there at the weekend (Poorboys Diamond white show glaze and then a couple of coats of Poorboys EX-P sealant over the top) so i'll keep topping up...
Will be collecting my S3 BE shortly. Is there any things I need to lookout or check for upon collection?
How can you guys afford all these brand new cars?
