    Sorry! Been driving ;)

    I totally love this car! It's everything I expected and more. Didn't want to get out of it.

    The exhaust sounds awesome, so spent a lot of time changing gear :)

    So worth the wait, truly awesome.

    Pics on the way.

    Saw my first S3 Sportback this evening - westbound on M4 near Swindon. Bright red (couldn't tell which red as was almost dark). I knew it was an 8v from the headlights but the 4 exhaust was the S3 tell. Looked gorgeous.

    Seems they are appearing on the roads now....

    That's interesting and contrary to what it suggests on page 28 of the A3/S3 brochure, I'd have a word with them!

    Still phone camera for now I'm afraid.
    I've tried to do a couple of vids for the noise but they don't come out very well. Tomorrow ill be going through a tunnel so that should help ;)

    Loving the car so far, no options that I wish I had gone for.

    In regards to the black trim option, when it came out I thought I was going to be annoyed I didn't have it but seeing it in the flesh I love the aluminium look so very happy I've not got it.

    I think your choice of having the aluminium over the black trim was a very wise decision, i too had this dilemma but chose to go with the ali, a) it helps define the look of the car dramatically b) i have never had the aluminium grill and with the chrome surrounds my mind was made up. Also the intakes where the fogs used to be are made visually more prominent with the ali in those areas imo. Nice car! Roll on December for my sportback! tick bloody tock, however, with new deliveries being made on here i have enough material to keep me salivating! my guess is you've nearly run her in after your first day!
