    tbh i think what comes standard with the BE is good enough.

    All I added was the light, de-badge, non smokers.

    I didnt see any point in the comfort back - wouldnt use any of the features. I would have loved key-less entry and start but not an option. Full leather seats annoy me - hot and cold and not as comfy as the half leather. I was going to get the full ipod setup but after reading users comments I didnt bother - I will replace the head unit.

    Mods that will be carried out asap:
    spray and break callipers 'red' and put the sline badge on them
    sline tax disk holder
    black front and rear audi badges
    picked up a lead for the iPhone until I replace the headunit.

    Future mods
    maybe some BBS rims - although the BE rims look the nuts in the flesh IMHO

    I know what you mean, all I went for is auto lights/wipers, interior light pack, phone prep(low) and de-badge. I dont see the point of parking aid on a small car.

    Mine fell well below the co car lease allowance so I ended up adding stuff just to make the most of my allowance. I dare say I'd have left a few options off if the money had been coming out of my pocket..

    Which lease company is it? My worry is you can order with the lease company, but how long do they sit on it before ordering with Audi?

    I picked up the Black Edition this afternoon.

    One word: LOVE.

    This car is awesome. The Ibis White and Anthracite alloys site together in harmony.

    The 140 power train is smooth, quiet and when pushed is no sloth.

    On leaving the Audi showroom we instantly had a 'boy racer' car along side. Its occupancy glared at the Iibis beast only to then give a nod of respect; this car does demand it by the drooling bucket loads. I love it.

    The Bose system packs one hell of a punch. Turn the bass up and you will feel like you have been winded. Ive had a competition Rockford Fosgate system in the past.. the Bose wipes the floor with it.

    Double pipe, double pipe... what double pipe?

    :arco:

    I didn't get a chance to drive the diesel but i hear its very impressive too. I'm finding the petrol fairly economical so far.

    You'll find it gets a bit of attention in the high street, especially with those LEDs on. Car is a real head turner
