    Nice spec! I presume by "LED pack" you mean the Interior Lighting pack?

    Yes was ordered on the 1st with an estimated delivery date of 28th Sept, so not too far off the estimated. One big change we made was the colour so I don't know if this may have delayed it a bit?

    Thanks Vertigo. As we have never had either an Audi or a brand new car before we thought "what the hell if we are spending this much money it may as well be perfect" ;) and yes interior lighting pack. Thanks for pointing that out I will edit it.

    Thanks Sandra, we are so excited. I have only ever seen 2 A3 8V's in my home town, but there is one near the station where I drop my other half every day for work. But it happens to be a Daytona Grey S-Line 3 door, so every evening I pick her up she asks "can we take a detour so we can drive past the Audi again" lol the proud owner is prob getting paranoid that we are planning to steal it or something as we cruise past at 5mph :racer:

    OMG! We have been out of the country for the last week. Have seen how some people's build weeks have come forward so thought I would give Southend Audi a call to see if ours had moved?

    6 weeks earlier, week 31!!!! Looking like a Sept 1st collection :D if all goes well they are inviting us to a BBQ the night before and driving out the showroom at 12:01am on the 1st woop woop #excited :D

    that's cool!

    I was hoping for the same from my dealer on 1st September, but they have opted for collection slots starting Sunday morning. Still hoping they might do the midnight thing but by all accounts getting registration sorted when new plate day is a Sunday can be a bit problematic apparently, not sure why.

    Lol not sure how they will do it? All he said was BBQ starting at 9pm, live band providing the entertainment for the evening, then cars can be driven away after midnight. How exciting is that! All I know is no champaign for me that night ;)
