Well, after a lot of messing around on the behalf of the dealership/DVLA taking off previous owner's private plate and getting old plate put back on, my car has finally arrived! I've had it for just over a week now, and just wow, is all i can say The only issue i have, is that the last person who had it put 235/40 tyres on the 18 inch alloys. So when the dealership replaced all four tyres before i bought it, they just followed suit. So on the work run last week with 2 passengers, and a full tank of fuel, they rubbed something chronic over every bump! Which on the motorway was a little disconcerting to say the least!! Anyway, i'd read through some other posts that said this would be an issue with this width of tyre, and the garage are now going to put on 225's instead - which is a result!! Despite this little rocky start to owning my first S3, i'm loving this car.
