Well after test driving both the new common-rail 140 and 170 2.0 TDI engines in cars with an S-tronic gearbox I have now made up my mind and placed an order this afternoon before the 2% price increase that becomes effective on Monday 23 February. The full spec is : A3 Sportback 2.0TDI-140 in SE trim and with a 6-speed S-tronic gearbox. Ice Silver metallic paint with a Light Grey interior. The SE trim package includes: Front fog lights 4-spoke leather multi-function steering wheel with gear change paddles Front centre armrest Drivers Information System The options I've ordered are: 17 x 7.5J 16-spoke alloy wheels with 225/45 R17 tyres Concert radio iPod connection in glovebox Electric driver's seat controls and lumbar support Rear acoustic parking system Light and Rain sensor pack Cruise control Dual-zone electronic climate control Interior light pack Luggage pack Storage pack Non-smoking pack Through load system Adaptive Xenon headlights with LED driving lights. The total cost of that little lot is £24,590 I am getting a 10% discount and £12,250 trade-in for my existing Sportback All I have to do now is wait for it to be built and delivered, probably mid to late April.
