    Picked up our glacier white s-line 2.0tdi sportback this morning and to say I'm happy doesn't do it justice. From the grand unveil at the dealers to the drive home in the sun with the roof open I have not stopped smiling. Haven't had a chance to play with all the options yet but plenty of time for that over the weekend. I've thoroughly enjoyed reading about everyone else getting their cars and after the usual wobble (have I chosen the right colour/options etc) I know that the right choices were made for us. It's our first Audi. I'll try and get some pics up when I get the chance.

    Wish I had gone for the pan roof! Was colour or the roof at the time. Still I must remember what a Scotsman once said to me. Summer is my favourite day of the year

    i haven't had a sunroof in 10 years. Curses ! Enjoy your weekend with the new addition. Mine arrives Monday Tick tock !

    I wish I had the pan roof too, but my s line was a dealership preordered car and I needed a new car ASAP last November so could not wait for a factory ordered car. It wasn't until I joined here that I realised what a popular option it is. I had wrongly stereotyped them as a throw back to their popularity in the 80s and 90s. Except on 4x4s I never imagined how good they look these days. Was it a popular option on the old model?

    Thanks moonlight, already up early to get out in the new toy. I didn't consider getting the pan roof until I saw some pics on here, I was straight on the phone to the dealer adding to our order. That was the problem joining this forum, everytime I saw another A3 photo/spec made me want to add to ours!

    I'm sure the weekend will fly by so not too long for you now. :)

    Congrats Ukm120.

    Welcome to the grinners club!! Good feeling isn't it...

    Really pleased your collection day was minus the heavy rain I had.

    You certainly are up early. Come to think of it, so am I. I've got a day of detailing to crack on with.

    Look forward to your thoughts after a few days of ownership.

    Cheers SJW. I didn't get any driving done today as the wife won the coin toss but it did give me the opportunity to enjoy the car as a passenger. Still need to tweak the settings on the audio and some other bits but getting there. It really has been a step up from my Leon and Ibiza FRs! Hope your detailing went well.

    Quick couple of photos, not great as taken on phone. Another day out today, 200 miles+ on it so far and happy with the 2.0tdi. Loving the B&O!!

    very nice indeed, looks nearly as good as Daytona grey. :lmfao:

    Glad your enjoying your car, can't wait for mine. I do like the roof especially on the white cars, thought about it for mine but decided against it.

    Cheers Mark. Ha ha Daytona was in the mix but decided on white for a change.
    Trust me the wait is most certainly worth it.
