Congrats, I'm excited for you
Thanks all, I really hope I'm not up at 3am! That will really make time drag :/
My first Audi and a big step up from my last car so it will be a special occasion
I had to spend the day in work when I was picking mine up and it was the longest day ever!
What time do you pick it up?
Gonna have to find jobs that go quickly!
Pick up at 2

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.
Sorry phone camera
How long were you waiting from order to collection
About 8-9 weeks. No idea how it was so quick!
Mate that looks absolutely stunning... We have great taste (mine will look identical!)
I'm very jealous of you right now.
Ill try to get some better pics up tomorrow or Sunday when the sun comes out.
It does look stunning!
I have one request though ... A video of the exhaust note! I'm struggling to find a decent video of it online!
Ok I'll see what I can do. There is a good one on you tube I found which is quite representative
gonna be a long wait for me!
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....
you must be well chuft! congrats on your new born motor! Is yours manual or S-tronic, if manual, would you mind posting a pic of the gear stick as i have seen two types in reviews....
and this one...
and in this photo the dead pedal seems to be missing the aluminium trim. confused
looking forward to some pics and have a great day, wanna vid of that exhaust rasp!
Awesome .... looks like the 1st S3 on here
Look forward to more pics if interior & exterior.
Ill take some more pics today to post. Mine is s-tronic I'm afraid but what I can say is that the foot rest has not got the Ali on it.
Simply stunning. Im glad you have enjoyed driving it. Now you have another whole weekend to enjoy. Few stops at he petrol station may be on the cards. You enjoy it to the max. x
That's interesting and contrary to what it suggests on page 28 of the A3/S3 brochure, I'd have a word with them!
I think if I'm honest I quite like just the pedals being aluminium
Thanks Sandra, I've done half a tank already! So yep I expect the will be another fill up today
I love this car
yeah ok......anyway enough of this trivial ****......PICS! lol
Lol ok, I will be out all day so will take lots and post later
Enjoy the car. Hope the weather is ok for you today. x

Sandra you have been a real star on this thread, you have giving it that female touch that we look for in our cars.
Thank you Graham. i enjoy the countdown threads, yes im a moderator, but im just a normal member as well, its fun for me to try match music to you all that picking up your new car and your individual personalities. x
Music is a way of life, and we all need it the raise our hopes and dreams at time's, and the count down, is just one off those time's.
This is so true Graham, i have music wherever i go and whatever im doing. Thank you. x
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!
