    Highlights are that tyre pressure monitor is now standard (massive saving lol) and new colour options.

    I've painted caliper's on both S3's 8L and 8P. Not that much of a job and comes out well. So if I do feel the need, I'll do it myself. Shame it wasn't a no cost option IMO on the S3

    I've been waiting for this, I've got a build of 7th July, it's been keeping me happy. I've ordered the 2.0 tdi so better mpg and co2 too. I wonder when the new brochure and specs come out?

    So they've increased the PS of the 1.4 COD and kept the Co2 low, that is good...

    I'm happy I bought when I did and feel special having Phantom Black now :)

    What is Mythos Black? Did a quick Google image search came back with a black A1 that looks like it has a very red fleck in its paintwork, bit like Panther Black? :/

    Think red calipers might look a bit OTT personally.

    According to the build your car on the Swedish audi website 19 wheels are now an option on the S3 sportback.

    My understanding is anything built from week 22 onwards is built to MY15 spec. I'm currently on wk 23. I wanted Daytona grey and after originally being told I could have it had to have it changed to monsoon. I'm going to try to get mine changed today. On another thread it's been suggested you can change up to 4 weeks before build week.

    Similar happened in '07 after I'd bought the then 'new' 8P.

    I had to pay £250 for flat bottom multi function steering wheel, it then became standard on MY08. I'd wanted black edition, wasn't available at launch, then guess what arrived in '08.... Wanted grey paint but didn't like dolphin grey much. Typically in '08 Daytona turned up. Everything I wanted and couldn't have or had to pay for became an option or standard!

    The only serious omission on the list is that I think 19's should be an option on new hatch / SB models, and still they persist with 18 only. Given the revenue opportunity it just proves how blind these fools are to public opinion.

    We are currently in BW17.

    As long as your car is built from BW 22, you will get the MY2015 changes.

    Caveat: BW's can move, be pulled forward or pushed back, until they get to Code 20 (Production Week locked).
    So if you're in BW21, and are desperate for Phantom Black, don't let them push your order back.
    Or if you're in BW22, and are desperate for Red Calipers, don't let them pull your order forward!

    Darkcooleo, thanks very much for the info - this really has put cat amongst the pigeons!! I had planned Sepang S3 Saloon, was awaiting for the Sepang rumour to be confirmed, but now........

    Daytona S3 Saloon with Black pack and Red Calipers or Sepang S3 Saloon (and saving some dosh and I think Sepang & Silver looks really well). Ant thoughts guys?

    Finally Test driving S3 Sportback tomorrow (but saloon suits us better) and have rough idea of price with discount. Really don't need car for a while, so I need to make right call.

    Haha, I was hoping they'd release a few new colours .. and Phantom (what I ordered) has been removed ... I was undecided before, and hoped this would help .. it's just made this worse lol ..

    Sepang with Super Sports Seats, or go Daytona and keep the Silver Leather, will red calipers set any of the colours off nicely .. and is my budget about to creep up ..?

    Nightmare ..

    The power increase on the COD is nice (for those getting MY15), but a simple tuning box can get more.

    Will cars that are on order and due for build in MY15 with TPMS selected as an option now see this option fitted for free and the final purchase price reduced accordingly? Or if you have specced it is it a case of hard luck, you will still be expected to pay for it, while those who didn't spec it now get it added for free?

    I'm quite keen on the red callipers too! Think they'd look really good on a Monsoon Grey S3.

    Audi are going through the process of changing all orders from BW22 onwards from MY14 to MY15. If you have been given BW28, then your car will be an MY15.

    This is good news! :)

    I see the MPG is better on the COD too? (60.1 vs 58 previously) And also on 1.4 122ps + 180ps quattro. I hope this also improves the S-Tronic MPG a little on the COD.

    its amazing how they always bring out faster engines with better economy!

    My estimate is that the 0-62 will improve by 0.3 seconds, just a guess tho ;)

    It all depends how you drive it ;) On my test drive of the A3 1.6 TDI I managed 100mpg on a 20 mile stretch of the M25, and on my evoque I can beat the official figures regularly (only when i am not in a hurry!)

    Totally agree that for normal driving (inc traffic etc) they are unrealistic, but they aren't made up, they are possible.

    They are changing the rules later in the year I think!

    Probably slightly quicker off the mark but I expect no extra grunt(torque). Makes a tuning box somewhat of a priority for me now but I still need more mileage yet, not even 1000 miles since Jan 26th...

    It is very rare that the quoted mpg can be obtained or exceeded, although I've managed to see 87mpg under certain conditions...
