    thanks
    ibis white, black leather/alcantara, heated seats, brushed aluminum inserts, armrest, fbmfsw, sunroof, rear parking system, hill hold, heating and folding mirrors, concert radio - think that the navi plus with mmi is waaaaay expensive

    Yeah I wasn't aware of that either. Certainly not a possibility for us in Australia in the A3/S3 range. We just get the regular RNS-E for the princely sum of AU$5307, haha.

    well...in the audi brochure it says navi plus with mmi logic, so i guess that would be it.
    it was white or black, or maybe sprint blue which looks better than it looks on the pics.
    yeah, i've got a good discount, well, for my country (not uk) i guess.

    Ibis White / FBMFSW / Nav / Sunroof / Heated seats / Blackout grille (I think). Will confirm everything on the weekend.

    Plus in Australia a lot of the things I see as being options in other markets are included as standard here. Such as centre armrest and rear parking sensors. There's others too, but I don't know the specs of the non-Australian markets well enough to work it all out.

    that's right, in some markets fbmfsw is standard, such as leather/alcantara and etc. but not here.
    it depends from market to market i guess.
    nice specs there.

    That happened with my MINI too. It took 14 weeks from order to delivery and 3 weeks after arriving I took the long way home from work and hit a kangaroo. Then, due a stuff up ordering parts it took 7 weeks to fix it.

    Taken from UK Audi site, info on MMI for the S3 (8P) MY 2009:

    Detailed information

    DVD Satellite Navigation system Plus

    [​IMG]
    - DVD-based route planning and guidance with MMI control logic and 6.5-inch colour monitor, 3D map display, RDS radio, DVD player for Navigation system, audio or MP3 CDs (cannot be used at the same time as Navigation system) and 2 integrated MMC/SD card slots for MP3. Includes Driver’s Information System (DIS) and European coverage disk. Chorus II Plus/Concert II Plus audio system deleted with this option, therefore a 6-CD auto-changer is recommended (must be ordered in combination with Electronic Climate Control on 1.6, 1.6 FSI and 1.9 TDI Special Edition models). Deletes cupholder

    Not sure if that means the kind of MMI we would be aspiring to, or the usual half ar$ed approach we have now.

    Yeah, I guess I took the MMI to be like the system in my boss' B8 A4 Avant.

    Good luck and enjoy browsing the forum doing your own head in while your waiting. :jester:

    The wait drove me bonkers but was worth it when it arrived.

    Congrats, bet you love it.

    Enjoy it! Cant beat the feeling of getting a nice new car.

    I wouldn't be too concerned about taking it gently, thrash the arse off it if you want to as long as its warmed up first.

    Chances are its probably been sat on the rev limiter during engine testing in the factory anyway.

    it's MY09, I didn't bother with MY10 because i didn't spec RNS-e. and to be honest it doesn't bother me if it's MY09 or MY10. the car is absolutely great in every aspect. can't wait for the engine to loosen up.

    Ahh the second wait now begins. See if you can wait until the magical 1000 clocks up before you give it a good licking.

    I bet you cant :whistle2:

    I just broke it in gently :racer:

    Could you please post some photos to cure my thirst for the time being?

    BTW, I was told the car was made in week 8.... but how can I check the actual time when the car was made?

    sorry camera phone photos from dealers, will post some better quality photos as soon as the rain stops. think it has something to do with chassis number.

    The long waiting is finally over... got the new s3 (made in Feb09) yesterday...

    Although there was no flat-bottom steering wheel, magnetic suspension, AUDI MMI... etc. It is still a very nice car. Now I just need to get over the 1,500 km... :sob:

    i would be more than happy to do it for you :whistle2:
    great specs mate, ibis white with black interior looks great (you can always retrofit fbmfsw, and rns-e). enjoy your car as much as you can, it's made for it, and don't forget to park at the end of the parking lot :icon_thumright:
