    Here it is... Could I of forgoten something? :)
    As some of you may be aware, the facelift comes with the mulitfunction steering wheel (flat bottom) as standard as with the LED driving lights and armrest, so no need to order them.

    Meteor Grey
    Black with Black headlining
    Non smoking pack
    Bucket seats
    DVD Navigation
    Ipod connection
    Cruise Control
    Interior Light pack
    Acoustic parking rear
    Phone prep/bluetooth (charge in armrest)
    light and rain pack
    Sunroof
    Tyre pressure monitor
    Bose sound system
    Folding mirrors and privacy glass

    and I think that's it.... All I need not is a build date! :jester:

    i wonder if armrest is standard here also.
    i placed my order about 2 weeks back, stealers didn't say anything.
    just added the charge for armrest.

    but they did tell me that light/rain sensor is standard now tho...
    plus they reckon B&O maybe replacing the BOSE???

    So your spending a fortune on a new car, then going to destroy the ride and handling by fitting an aftermarket suspension kit and invalidating your warranty???:uhm:

    Armrest is now standard, make sure they don't bill you for it.Would have saved me about 400 quid with the MFFBSW, never mind.

    Done properly it will improve handling a fair amount and not ruin the ride. Also it will only affect the warranty when it comes to suspension, everything else will still be covered.

    And it'll look sweet! :thumbsup:

    Is there an option not to have an armrest? I'm glad I didn't have to have one on mine, they get in the way.

    Sounds like a nice spec.

    I would get rid of the Ipod connection, its rubbish. And maybe think about retrofitting the Sat Nav, will save you a fair chunk of money that way, lots of people have done it on here.

    Coilovers will improve the ride and handling, and improve the numb steering, that the S3 has

    You didn't see his R32 then??? Im guessing not - Very nice car, and professionally done

    I've had coilovers on all my cars and it's never destroy the ride and handling, it only improves it.
    I was in 2 minds about the armrest... but when I sat in one my arm was resting on it and I didn't even notice! I actually quite liked it. But as it came as standard I can get a new console at the base to remove it, but in all honesty I thought it was quite nice in the end.
    The ipod connection... well, I had read that it's ****, but what the hell, I have an ipod, it can't be that bad..... can it? :meeting:lol

    I'd agree about the ipod thing, I've got one and it's rubbish! It's great for charging my iphone though, and you can play music through it which is great but it's so budget that it doesnt even display the track name! If you can be bothered I'd bet there are some much better aftermarket options out there.

    I ended up ordering it from a local garage, despite me ringing nearly every dealer I could find a number for! I didn't want to say the garage as i'm sure they'll get bombarded with calls now... HAHA
    Anyway, on yer marks, get set.... Tonbridge (Kent) GO!!!

    Probably not as B + O is in most other Audi models such as the A4/6/8 etc as a optional extra, it does not appear anywhere in the A3 brochures.

    Dont think for one minute they would only spec it as a optional extra in a individual country....

    he could have been on the right track about B&O.
    just not for the A3 then..
