    The wifes just phoned me to say the a letter has arrived from Audi stating the the S3 is now built and awaiting shipment from the factory.

    I recieved a letter the other week saying that the build was commencing on the 12th February.



    Now just the long bloody wait for it to arrive at the dealers. They have given me an estimated collection date of the 31st March.

    So a question for you all, as the dealer was as clear as mud.

    After you recieved this letter how long did it take for your car to arrive at the dealership and was parked in your garage ???


    I'm hoping for a miracle and that I can collect it closer to the beginning of March rather than the end.

    Yeah Dave - get some pics up on Sunday - never mind wanting to drive it.

    Just for rubbing it in I think you need to - Pics first drive later ;)

    Two to three weeks would take me to mid March - so a little better than the 31st Macrh which my dealer is quoting me.

    Ye I heard that if you order an S3 SPORTBACK in particular they are delayed and have started to detune the engine to 140 BHP. lol
    It will come quicker than you think.

    Will get some pics up, need tinted windows though to add to the look.

    ha ha

    If I was paraniod I may just believe you.

    But the lovely lady at Audi telephoned me yesterday to say that I could expect collection either the end of next week or beginning of the week after.

    In anycase she's going to phone me the moment she gets confirmed when its arriving at the dealer.

    I want to inspect it (and take some pics :drool:) before they PDI it. :whistle2:

    I ordered mine second week of January and got it three weeks later!

    Basically, instead of placing an order and waiting for a few months, the dealer was very proactive and found me a demo already on ship to the UK in exactly the same spec I wanted; so desperate were they get a sale, I also got them to squeeze £1000 off the list price, drop the delivery charges and I got them to fit privacy glass for free when the tracker went on. Hence I got the S3 I wanted inside of three weeks! I've now almost run it in, just 200 miles to go and I can start to gradually build the revs up! Still to see another facelift S3 on the other road - I know you're out there??? I'm certainly getting a lot of admiring looks from drivers of other cars - must be the LED DRL's :think:

    It's a brilliant colour!! But I am slightly biased. I ran a poll on S3 colours ages ago and Sprint came out on top. Might be time to resurect it now we have more owners on here.

    This was an odd review I thought.

    Is it really that good, that useable?

    Has FORD just ripped up the rule book (and maybe laws of physics) to make a 300bhp FWD that works?

    All the car mags are loving the Ford RS....dont get me wrong I dont think there would be much in it against a S3 but the Focus may win on the fun factor but not with the quality.
