    I wasn't a fan at first but when you see them on an Ice Silver car they look like they have been matched colour wise.

    I must admit the first time I saw them actually in the metal was on a silver A3 a few weeks ago at my dealers and when I saw them I liked them.

    It can take upto two weeks but it's usually less. Mine has been a week and is not at the dealers yet.

    Unfortunately yours is not the only car waiting at Tyne to got out to a dealers. Mine took 12 days to be delivered from Grimsby to my dealer in Huntingdon (114 miles by road) but only 8 days to get from Ingolstadt to Emden (476 miles by train)

    One thing I was not aware of with my new car was the sports seats colouring. I ordered Black/silver (KY) but I was not really aware that the panels in the seat would be a silver colour similar to the picture on page 43 of the current Pricing and Specification brochure but where there is orange on those seats there is silver on mine. I really like it and it does stop the interior being all black.

    I will try and take some over the week-end.

    I went out for a drive through the lanes this evening and whilst the power of the 184 feels very similar to my 170 at the moment, the quattro is amazing even with standard and not sport suspension and the car is so much more comfortable than the S-Line demonstrators I had out on test drives.

    Definitely the best possible set-up for me.

    The other thing that makes the ride pleasant is the tyres. On my previous 170 I had Hankook Ventus S1 Evo tyres and these very quiet and gave excellent grip. The other tyres I've heard good reports about, especially noise wise, were Dunlop Sport MAXX RT and those are the tyres fitted to my new car so I'm well pleased.

    Either Tuesday or Thursday. Would like it sooner but apparently the Workshop and handover room is pretty busy this coming week. Plus the guy dealing with it is off Wednesday. :)

    Very nice. Can't go wrong with silver.....

    Is it me or does the 8V look much sleeker and dare I say it bit more compact against the 8P? I'm sure the 8V is bigger but in the flesh / pictures it never looks that way to me. Must be a trick of design !

    The doesn't seem to be any illustration of it in any of the brochures but it's the standard 'Rallye' cloth that is used on the Sport model. The only illustration of this is on p41 on the Pricing and Specification Guide but it's shown is just the Black (FZ) colour. It is also available in Black/silver (KY) which is the one I have, Black/blue (LQ) and Black/yellow (RR).

    Personally I much prefer my Black/silver option to the all Black option.

    Had a quick look in the brochure. In reality it looks a lot different to what's displayed on page 41. The fact you're happy with it is all that matters though!

    When I went for the lighter interior I had the salesman showing me a just delivered car because that was the only one he could find with it at the dealership. I can't go on pictures alone for the above reason

    Car arrived in Sheerness on the weekend/Monday! (Vessel name: Emden for those who are interested)

    Customer services said it can 2 ****ing weeks to get to me though... Anybody got a car that has come from Sheerness and can give me a real life estimate?

    My dealer said that my car has actually already been given a transport order and sent me a screenshot of my order on their system which was pretty cool.

    Car spec:

    S3 3-door
    Amalfi White
    Black Styling Pack
    Comfort Pack + Adaptive Cruise Control
    Audi Sound System


    Private plate's going on there on day one too - S3 JUR (My name is Jordan, so I was pretty lucky to find that I think!)
