    The car in question is a 5 month old ibis white car with
    Black styling pack
    Factory tints
    Sight and light
    Electric lumbar support
    Electric front seats
    Cruise control
    Bose
    Folding wing mirrors


    and a couple of other things

    This particular car was up for 42k, so just less than list, but as I've just sold the TTRS i don't have a car to part exchange so I've managed to secure a discount on the asking price, moreso as they needed the car off their forecourt ASAP.

    If rs3 plus is released then I'll sell this one and order the plus which again will probably be delayed etc etc..

    Before none ask what happened to the Racing Mica RS3 I had on order, well it's still not arrived and I sold my order a few weeks ago for a tidy profit.

    Better photos to follow

    Looks superb, think I saw this on vagoc also.

    Was there a problem with your original order as you placed an order for an RS3 earlier this year didn't you?

    Nice one, Audi's waiting times at the moment are a joke. Someone who'd placed an order for an RS3 at my local dealers has just pulled out due to unacceptable wait times.

    Lovely car and really interested to see how you get on with it.

    Once my foot is better it will be getting some well deserved TLC, but before that I want a drive and testing the launch control :D

    Thought i would update this thread as i have had the car for around 6 weeks now.

    In that time it hasnt been used that much, but i have added a couple of mods

    LED interior light upgrade from EM Tuning - They make a massive difference and is how the car should be in standard form.

    I also added a newly aquired plate too.

    Ive also added one of these :

    [​IMG]

    DTE Systems Maximum Response PEDAL BOX | chip tuning boxes from Diesel Tuning UK

    If im 100% honest i love the car to bits but its certainly not as involving to drive as the manual TTRS, but saying that the Launch Control is epic..

    Is it a keeper? Only time will tell but i dont think it will be here in 12 months time..
