    My build date is due to be released next week, I ordered in April, what can I do to pass the time? It's driving me mad already. I need the car! I've never had a new car before so the s3 really is going to be worth the wait! I just need something to take my mind off it! Haha. Anyone got any videos they can post up of the gear change burble(auto) from inside the car?

    This forum definitely helps :)

    I'm due to pick up next week and it really has been a killer of a wait. My wife is sick of hearing about it.

    It's horrible but you get there in the end. And from what I hear it's worth the wait.

    Please steer clear of this already dark path, it has been trodden many times by those already on this forum (I myself managed to remain pure in spirit as I awaited the delivery of my A3). It will only make things worse and you will be tempted to continually view pictures of naked S3 models which can only lead to some maladjusted fetish that will ultimately be your downfall.

    Try to take up some charity work or a hobby while you wait - meditation can be a great source of comfort and I practised this for many hours and eventually becalmed to a zen like state :zen:

    If you keep looking into this forum you will be with others who have been through the same and come out the other end with a lovely new Audi A3/S3 to play with.

    I ordered one early April and failed to get a build week but was told May/June which i didn't believe. So I cancelled the order and bought a showroom S3 instead :p - Simply couldn't wait and had it a week now and love it.

    I'm in same boat, S3 S-Tronic but mine is 5+ month wait due to exclusive paint. What's the delay on yours?

    Most of the videos I've found are not in English, not many on youtube really.

    There should maybe be video thread, where people could post videos of there new arrivals or mods. That would help people through these dark times :)

    I'd presume so now yes as it's a optional colour. Did you get a refund on the exclusive paint?
