Went to Cheshire Oaks Audi yesterday to see our new A3 Sportback S Line 2.0 TDI in Missano Red. Going back Friday to to pickup.
Very nice indeed. Mine was built last week and shipped over to the UK today. Getting excited now, only a couple of weeks to go hopefully!
You never know, I might even be the first person to post photos of a Phantom Black S-Line Sportback on this thread! I still haven't seen any black ones on the road
thats lovely mate, I do love Misano Red.
Finally got a chance to get some pics up of my Brilliant Black A3 S-Line 1.4 TFSI:
Posting pics of my Dutch 8V SB!
Very nice....is the chrome grille standard on the S-Line in Holland? Me want......!
S Line badge on the grill, too!
@daveb99: It's an S3 grille with an S-line badge.
Burningarrow, stunning photos! Wonderful car you got there!
I was just about to ask! is that a special option grill?
The grille isn't available officially through the dealer's over here since the S3 hasn't been introduced here. I've had it imported from Germany.
Interesting......how much was it?
Here's a few snaps from up the Great Orme, Llandudno. And Holyhead. Had the car 4 days now very happy with it.
Mine arrived today, phantom black S Line. Very hapy with it but got to source the roof bar bits to convert my Thule bars for this type of roof rail. Is it the same as the current A4 Estates?
Would it be a good idea to remind posters to blur/remove/blank out reg plates on pics of their very nice A3's.
Nice to see some sportbacks appearing now, I'm jealous of all the S lines btw :lol: mine's a Sport, due in June.
where did you get the s3 grill from mate?
Mine arrived today; 2.0 tdi S Line in bog standard red with satnav added and the dropped S line suspension. No media cables of course (thanks for the heads up) but at least I've managed to set up my iPhone so I can listen to decent music.
It's a company car, one I've picked as part of an economy drive, I've handed back a 170bhp Scirocco this morning so of course the A3 doesn't feel as swift but I'm pretty sure I'll get the feel of it soon.
Here's my one and only day one picture; too busy to take more!
Delivered today: 2.0 TDI S-Line in Misano red, options as per my signature. It's a lovely car, definitely worth the wait
can I ask, as my number plate is their to view on my car 24/7, why you need to blur? Probably a stupid question I know ?
I want to know this too. I went ahead and blured them on photobucket anyway.
Maybe he's thinking some undesirable's will clone your vehicle or find out where you live and steal your car and then strip for parts
I've tried driving my car with the plates covered up when I'm driving, but the police seem to get twitchy about it!
that actually crossed my mind after I posted the question, but In all honesty if someone wants your car they'll get it! My number plate is on my car 24/7 not much I can do about that
i had a conversation with a policeman after a focus ST got stolen from our road, he said the same thing not alot you can do as some cars are stolen to order! His only advice was don't make it hard for them to find your keys! It's only a car and can be replaced, you or family can't! if they break in for the keys , which they normally do, you don't want them coming upstairs and being agressive , to put it nicely !
My 2.0Tdi Sport in Scuba Blue
Wow Andy, the Scuba Blue looks fantastic...well done...nice motor!
Looks stunning andy, it's good to see that colour, that's what I have ordered, but waiting on an "August" delivery! Enjoy.
Scuba looking sharp in this glorious sunshine Andy. Too late for me to change my colour choice.
Photos of my car as promised.
Wow, fantastic. Do you have a permanent grin on your face now? Thanks for sharing pics. Enjoy the car. x
I haven't stopped grinning since I got my car. I keep looking out of the front window to look at it.... That's when I can bear to leave it for a few minutes.
First A3 8V Sportback I've seen and I love it!
I bet you say that to all the A3's
Car looks stunning
Must admit more I see Scuba Blue the more it grows on me. Looks lovely.
Love the interior blue color mate, enjoy !
A few more pics of these seats would be more than welcomed !
