    Agreed, it's gorgeous in Daytona!

    I'm paranoid about this now... Is there a word in the plate that I'm not seeing? I'd hate to be like the guy who drove around with "PDO" at the end of his...

    I wish I'd put mine on retention weeks ago. TBH I don't think the dealer's been particularly proactive about the transfer as I took the paperwork in 3 weeks ago!

    Apparently it's been processed, just waiting for the tax disc to come in the post. They said it can take 5-10 working days though...I bloody hope not or Ill be asking for an R8 for the weekend ha ha.

    Kids starving to death is disgusting. The A3's rear ain't disgusting. Even if it's not to your taste.

    Thanks Mark, very pleased with it and glad I went for Daytona. When's yours due?

    It's the standard half leather, although it's difficult to tell from the photos.

    Hoping to hear something this week, so fingers crossed its sooner rather than later. Will keep you posted.

    Looks like full leather on the pics.

    Glad your pleased with it and yes I think Daytona is a great colour. With the right polish etc Daytona can look amazing.

    Hi,

    The Mrs gets to order a new company car soon, and we have had the option of choosing 3 different cars from a 'list' to test drive for a few days (well, we've had the A3 a week now as they couldn't agree a collection date). Not entirely sure of the spec of the 'loaner', but what I do know is its an S-Line, 2.0 Tdi 3dr in Metallic Black, full leather, sat nav, int. light pack, and a few more toys that I need to check the spec sheet for.

    Sorry for the poor phone pics..

    Owning an S-Line sportback already (2007) I was a little concerned about the ride quality as she'll be doing some long journeys in it. There is a function (Drive-Select I think its called) where you can choose Dynamic - Comfort - Economy or Individual. I was quite surprised by the difference it made in each selected mode. Comfort was actually a really nice, semi-soft but assured drive, where dynamic tightened everything up to make it more responsive. This can also be assigned to a button on the steering wheel for effortless selection. Being a test drive car, Economy was never selected & didnt have time to get into the details of the Individual, but this (if not standard) will definately be a considered extra, depending on cost.

    One other thing, I was hugely impressed with the ability to scribe letters & numbers into the touch sensetive centre of the selector wheel in the botton image, yes you can use it to scroll throuth the alphabet...but its kinda fun to watch your child like handwriting come up in the screen, and have it confirmed by the onboard computer.

    Not 100% sold on the looks, but the technology available is quite impressive.
