    @RGB no dealer I speak to has any discount to offer on a new one! You must know the MD ;)

    That is such a low miles car that I would consider it for sure - if it stacks up financially & they offer you a good deal.

    Well here she is. Only odd thing is the Mirrors are silver. Dealer reckons Audi will just tell them to reorder whole car. i was expecting black mirrors!! Not sure on that one.

    The exhaust sounded ok in dynamic but couldn't record it.

    Just get carbon mirrors for free off the dealer. Haha. Looks good mate. Bet you can't wait to get your hands on it.

    Looks mint! Just had word mine landed late this afternoon as well! I’m off away for a few days in the morning so will now have to sit it out till collecting on Friday. Strange about the Mirrors? Presumably an error?

    Turns out mine is the same... apparently body colour mirrors are an option and not default on the black pack although apparently they now come black by default and didn’t on early orders. Very odd

    Dealer seems to think mirtors
    What are you going to do? I specifically went through order and was told Black mirrors. My RS3 has the Black pack with silver mirror s and looks good but it was the first thing I spotted when I saw the car and not as ordered. Perhaps if someone from Audi is reading this they will sort us both out with Carbon Mirror caps!

    @RGBARGEE

    Car looks mean as **** :sunglasses: :icon thumright:

    Personally I like the contrast of the mirror caps against black .... but if it bugs you yes get Dealer to supply retrofit carbon & they will look equally cool.

    Well that’s it mate ... it’s real now :yes:

    Looks ace :thumbs up:

    Looks great, especially the rear arches. Needs a clean and paint shine treatment. As for mirrors, the jury is out. Maybe one of each?

    Yeah those rear arches look mean as ****. Can’t wait to see it in black in the flesh as they do look so much better in real life than a lot of the pics for some reason!

    My man at Audi said he preferred the Aluminium. Personal choice clearly. But, I was expecting black and that’s what I now want. I’ve had silver mirrors on the last few so time to go a bit more stealth

    I wanted more stealth too but will persue tomorrow. I did particularly say I was pleased they were black and FOC. Even the My Audi has had black mirrors from the outset. Dealer suggests Audi will not care and suggest reordering. No!

    Reorder the whole car? Wtf

    Surely that’s a resolvable situation. Have they got a launch car in with black mirrors? If so...

    Have had a chat with the dealer, they will turn the caps black but there seem to be mixed views and today I'm not so sure. Think I might live with it for a while and see how I feel after a few weeks.

    Great news :icon thumright:

    If black is how you pictured the car then maybe get them put on.

    I like them in silver but that’s the look you had on your RS3 - if you fancy or change - or go with silver as per S / RS cars.

    Either looks good imo ... so just try & make a choice then run with it.

    Once you get the car, the mirror caps will be minor lol as you’ll be enjoying driving it :)

    RS3 is a hooligan of course, RS4 felt more cultured and serene. Foot down it flew away so yes very fast still just with less "look at me" vs the RS3. Overall a really nice place to spend time imho. Oh and those arches!

    Nice spec. White looks good again on this B9. Seen one with ABT wheels. Very nice.
    What kind of figures did you get?

    I hate the Alcantra on my RS3, perforated leather is much easier to look after.

    Yeah for me, I was expecting black so that's what I want. I've had silver for the past three and a half years (S3/S5) so time for a change. But it's all personal choice.

    In other news, this time tomorrow I'll be in mine eeeeeeek!

    Do you think it looks MUCH better in the flesh? the only car I've ever really noticed to this extent where pics do not do it the justice it deserves. All the pics Auditography does of course are amazing (if you dont know who this is look him up on YouTube or Instagram!), but most other pics I see dont quite capture the beauty of it?
