    Mine had 27 miles on when I got it.

    There are two road tests, one at a certain check point in the build at the factory and one at the PDI process at the dealer before pick up.

    :idea:
    Why not take delivery with Milltek and big brakes then only the warranty onthose items will be comprimised (so what, disks & pads only have 6 month cover and Milltek is SS)
    Then, have the car remapped after delivery without AUDIs knowledge.

    Bingo!, modded facelift, hassle free, 36 Months warranty cover, and a car that you can punt on later.

    I know everyone was thinking the same, just thought I would type it.

    Already enquired & they arent cheap trust me, I'll await for a crashed one which will anyday now turn up & get an external company to code into car(with any luck, lol) cause unless its less then 100km's on clock or new it wont be done by dealer unfortunately

    what I did notice during one of my daily curiosity moments, is the climate dials front facing piece does actually come of, shame you cant buy them seperate so can have the chrome style, oh well more money

    Mine came with 19 miles on the clock.
    I asked and was advised that each car is tested on a rolling road as they come out of the factory - it's designed to test the running gear.
    Then as said the dealer test drives it to make sure all is OK.

    The red/silver/black colour scheme goes very nicely together. I am more than pleased with my red one!

    But there again, I bought my first new car in 1986 and it was a red Mini. Every new car bought since (apart from a Metro 1275 Sport in 1988 that only came in white) has also been red.
    Never had one go pink as I keep them polished up with Mer.

    On holiday last week in France and hired a black Peugeot that was only a few months old. Covered in swirl marks and got dirty really quickly.
