    So maybe not the first, but must be nearly as my built slot was once the Dealers demo!

    Can't wait for my car, the daily day-dreaming is becoming distracting and my team at work are getting fed up with listening to me go on about it!

    Anyway. It was built this week, and is now in transit so should be here by the end of the month (Dave, I might need your help on tracking boats!)

    My spec is here below, and I'll make sure I share some (extensive) pics once I pick it up!

    S3 Saloon S-Tronic.
    Panther Black.
    Tech Pack,
    Super-sports seats,
    LED Lights,
    Comfort pack with Adaptive Cruise and parking plus,
    Folding mirrors,
    Bang and Olufsen Sound System,
    Interior Light Pack,
    Hill Hold Assist,
    Privacy glass,
    Tyre sensor,
    Boot Mat

    You'll be like I was when I first got my first 8v a3 back in October 2012, didn't see another for months! Was gutted when more started cropping up but yours will be exclusive for a while I bet

    You will have to bring it to Ware or I will try and get a parking slot in the big glass house so we can get some side by side pics :yes:

    The advantage of having a saloon is that, if you are like me, there are none in my area...

    You're right, I've literally seen one A3 saloon so far, and I have been looking!

    So the wait is nearly over...

    Just got a call from the dealer to say it was in the UK, now awaiting Customs, plus transport to the dealership!

    Can't wait, have been scouring the web for decent pictures of what mine might look like. Best ones found below...

    Your a lucky man Joe, even though I do love my S3 SB it was the S3 Saloon that originally switched me on to the new S3 in the first place but I couldn't wait so I will be a tad envious when you collect yours but I'm looking forward to all your pics!!

    Your defo going to love it tho!!

    Night time pick up?

    Is the car bathed in seductive lighting with the nightie draped over the table lamp or what ? ;)

    It's amazing how time slows down though when you're waiting! I even pulled my pick up forward to 2pm tomorrow because I couldn't wait those last few hours lol, I think even the dealer staff where amazed at my trainspotter levels of S3 knowledge! I, of course, acknowledged this forum as the source ;)

    Agreed, expecting many pictures, once you've stopped smiling and can stop yourself from driving it, and also to put the car in the A3/S3 saloon register...
