As posted earlier my S-Line Sportback turned up this morning as is always the way the one working day where one would have liked to have got away a little earlier turned out to drag on until 6.15pm (started at 7am). So a 75 mile commute home in the dark - some intial thoughts: 1) Door locks mentioned in a separate post 2) The Xenon headlights are way better than the Xenon ones I had in my A4 Cabrio - and yes they are Bi-Xenon now too. The inner driving light position has a sidelight bulb in it. 3) The S-Line suspension is HARD, on the M40 I could feel the flesh on face wobbling (and no I'm not some fat git either!), I won't condem the suspension just yet cos' when my 1.8t sport Cabrio was new the suspension was too hard on that as well it takes a few thousand miles to be in. 4) The SatNav is as brilliant as the previous version - there are some subtle changes to the user-interface compared with my last one........ 5) The BOSE sounds good, especially when cranked. 6) The two inner buttons on the multi-function wheel don't do anything unless you have a phone fitted. 7) Performance is pretty rapid although the engine is clearly quite tight still 8) Steering is very precise and involving - light at walking pace and ultra direct when the speed picks up. I have read several reports that have slated the A3 steering feel so Audi must have fixed it. 9) Getting a comfortable driving position will take a bit of effort - the left foot rest seems to close to the drivers seat - almost as though car was designed by someone with short legs? I can relate to Bowfers comments about getting sore in the seat already - goes with a change of car for me. 10) 48.7 mpg on the trip made me smile as did leaving the M40 a junction early to enjoy the back roads - this car really handles well, 11) Build quality is excellent (aside from the door issue) and the quality of the paint finish is gorgeous.
