    Yep this Friday, as in two more sleeps :) I can't believe that it has been so quick, considering the dates that others have said they are expecting.
    I've been to see it and sat in it just to make sure it is real.
    Don't worry I will put lots of picks up when I get it home (may be a long journey home😉)

    Very Jealous! I've still have 8 weeks before mine is even built.

    Really looking forward to seeing pictures and your reading your first impressions.

    Thanks Sandra, loving the choice of song, I think I should make it the first song played on the b&o on the way home ;)


    I'm hoping first impressions will be up to expectation, it will be amazing to experience it rather reading/watching everything I can find.

    niiice, very jealous Dylock - ordered my manual Estoril SB S3 a couple of weeks after you, but I'm on for a week 39 build, although I think that's just the SB effect (no one seems to be getting them before then).

    Can't wait to hear/see all about it!

    My dealer, obviously can't confirm but says there is a good chance it is the first customer s3 in the country.
    Even he was shocked it stuck to the build date.

    I've just seen my first S3 coming out of work tonight near st neots, cambs!!! It was a red sport back! I couldn't believe my luck, especially as I'd placed my order with Audi today for the 3 door s stronic s3!

    I pulled out infront of it (safely of course) at a round about so I saw it from the front, then I pulled into a layby to let it pass so I saw it from the back. Looked absolutely stunning! The exhausts really give it a menacing stance on the road! Mind blown.

    You could still be the first 3 door! I was surprised too, I had to look twice at the start but the silver wing mirrors were the major tell tale sign from the front given how small it looked in the my rear view.

    Enjoy those first miles..... ,! but please don't forget those who are waiting ... Tell us about the colour, the suspension, the B&O, the alloys, the seats, the interior lights, the exhaust note, the feel of the steering wheel and all these details that we crave! And congrats for spotting it and getting your order in so quickly! :weight_lift2: Watch the rear view mirror automatic blue light recognition was not standard equipment. Enjoy.
