    cant speak for the others but i have been selling drugs outside of schools and robbing old people. It may seem a little harsh at first glance but look at what i'll be getting out of it in a few days time! I think anyone would agree, you have to break a few eggs to make an omelette.

    I am doing the same as Grumbleweed (Drug Dealer) hence why i went for the Black Edition with the darkened windows so nobody could see.

    Mine is private sale down the PCP route..

    oh you bloody jokers!:p. Anyway I really do like Black edition, especially in black. Looks mint but with 7 spoke alloys though, the 2011 are rubbish, dont suite the car at all.

    Yes, In Photobucket there 4 links you can choose Email & IM, Direct Link, HTML Code,and IMG code. You need choose "Direct Link" and copy it. Then click on Insert Image on here and Paste. Make sure you got the cuser in and in the reply box flashing.

    So, it's been some time since I visited the forums. I expect many people are in the same boat as me, but my delivery has been delayed from April to June because they can't get the tyres. Back in January I changed my order, because the car had not been built - went from Phantom Black to Ibis White as I thought the car was too black and with the reduction in price ordered the through load system and heated front seats.

    I kicked up a fuss with the lease company because of the latest delay, and yesterday they delivered an A4 saloon with Technik spec FOC until mine arrives, which is quite nice but I just want my car delivered! From order to delivery I'm looking at somewhere between 10 and 11 months now.

    It's mad reading all the stories in this thread, of people having to wait so long, and delays.

    I ordered my S3 SB, just before Xmas, and my car is already at the dealer. Going to see it tomorrow. I suppose I can count myself lucky!

    Was quoted a build week of 15/16, which then moved to forward to 11 - result!

    Looks amazing!!!! Good colour choice. I think if I had an S3 sprint blue would be first and now you've just made my second choice!

    Lovely car! Just a question, is it me or is the ride height extremly high? It looks like a Q5!

    Car is stunning!!!

    Looks like it's still in its wrapper so it will have the spacer blocks in the front springs. It raises the front end and stops the bumper catching the transporter during loading.

    FFS make sure they remove them.... i drove an Octavia VRS, company car round for 3 months and after 2 visits back to the dealers as i thought it was a shocking ride, they decided to tell me they had left them in.... DOH....
