Well the deed is done - ordered our new S3 today at Derby Audi. All I'll say is if you want a good deal go and see Sam, a top bloke who's been running their demo s3 as his own car for a while so knows it (and drives it!) well. So, spec is Brilliant Red (yes, solid colour) with black leather sportback s-tronic comfort pack with adaptive cruise and pdc rear only adaptive xenon b&o door mirrors auto dim/fold lumber support mono pur interior lighting pack non smoker pack privacy glass reversible boot mat technology pack (not high) tyre pressure indicator audi gap thats the lot - it's ACACGXQG config code. Should find out what build slot next week sometime. March delivery expected. I also got to see a brilliant red A4 next to a Misano a3. Very VERY similar but the Misano is just a touch more orange IMHO. I'm happy with the brilliant red.
