How about Domino?
We thought of that but the Pizza Express seems to be sticking ;-)
Pizza express is too long, you need a one word name. How about mozzarella, pepperoni or parmesan.
Got it "BRATWURST"
Just add 'The' and I reckon it works fine In daily life.......
'Which car shall we take today darling? Yours or The Pizza Express? As there may be some drinking, I'll drive there and you can drive back'
I wish I had that plate. Mine is unchristened as yet......a right 5hite combination.
Ps Nice car btw
Not the best pics...... either raining or dusk! It looks more cream in the pics, as in reality it's quite silver. I love it!
Bah...In Australia we can have out S3 interior in whatever colour we want. As long as it's black!
That's true if you select the S Performance Pack, but if you didn't, I think you get a few extra options, ie the brush aluminium, the on that comes the the red seats.
But like you, we've both ticked S Performance Pack, so our choice is inlays in 3D design (black).
Glad to see many have been having fun this weekend!
Despite my build having been put back a week to 10. It was in fact built in 9 as planned. My new toy now officially exists! Now on a train, on it's way to Emden, although they said that yesterday so not too sure if that could mean it's actually at the port.
Anyone now how granular the tracking is? I'd assumed they know exactly where the cars are.
Well - I've had a change of plan and decided I couldnt live with 'urrgghh boring grey' as my little one called it - after having 2 blue Audi's - I'm moving onto my 3rd as I've just changed my order to an exclusive - so sorry Ecosphere you'll need to change your stats.....
Went to the dealers today to sign paperwork for the wife's A1 & they'd just unloaded a transporter & my eyes nearly fell out when I saw my S3 One of the guys was just moving it so once we were done I had to go find it & took a couple of **** snaps
Had a bit more of a wander about & found her A1 as well
Hopefully I've uploaded these right
Got back to work & got a call to say I can have my car Tuesday Just a little excited now!
Apparently mine is built and waiting to be transported to the docks.....
Looks like the 2nd week of march will be missed but im hoping for this month at least
Got it this morning Not been able to go far as we have sparks in the house & they seem to constantly need questions answered, heyho. What driving I have done has been very promising, a big step up from my 8P 2.0T :thumbsup: Anywho a first piccy
Nice, same step up as I'm doing, I can't wait.
You need to add in Audi Exclusive to your tally.
Audi S3 Saloon - Exclusive paint. No build date for me as yet...
I'm also waiting for my build date - originally it was delivery end of May beginning of June - but then I changed to exclusive paint and was told it will probably add time.
Emailed the dealer today to seeing they have been given a date yet.
Misano is pearlescent, so will change colour shade in bright sunlight - with a more orangey tinge I think
Looks Red to me... all the time, but I haven't seen The Sun in Months.
Build Week 28 now - meaning a delivery date of mid August !!
When did you order mate?
I ordered 7th February, if they tell me August i'll be cancelling. They told me 12-16 weeks the day I ordered!
I originally placed my order on 28th January and got a build week of 15 with delivery 1st or 2nd Week of May
BUT - I then changed my order (on 5th March) and added exclusive paint so its moved the build date out (which I expected) to build week 28 for delivery Mid August. I knew it was going to move - just didnt think it would move by 13 weeks.....
But I'll be Happy once it arrives and its the colour I wanted and I didnt 'make do'
Hope everyone is enjoying their new rides!
Got some teaser snaps from the dealership today, ahead of my pick up at the weekend
I have been lurking around from early December last year when i ordered an S3 with the help of some of suggestions from people on here and picked it up on the 7th March and thought i would post some picks for everyone to look at.
First things first the spec.
S3 3 Door
Audi parking system plus
Auto dimming, adjustable, folding, heated door mirrors
SD Sat Nav
Super Sports seats
Monsoon Grey S3 Slideshow by molemenacer | Photobucket
Sounds like a lovely motor Ross. I can't get the link to work to look at the pictures though.
Is this an S3? It's got 4 pipes but debadged and no silver wing mirrors? Either super stealth or with extra pipes somehow?
Thanks, pretty happy with it myself
See if the new link is any better
Looks like an S3 to me - de-badge and mirrors in body colour are factory options you can tick (god knows why!). Those wheels are obviously factory option too.
Yep, working properly now.
Looks really nice in Monsoon. I spent ages trying to decide between Monsoon and Estoril. Still really like both.
I copied the wrong link
I spent ages choosing between Misano and Monsoon and then ended up at Crawley Audi and saw both colours on their forecourt and the Monsoon appealed to me a lot more. After a few weeks of driving i am even more convinced that i chose correctly, monsoon is a really good colour and suits the car perfectly (although whichever colour people choose they are going to say the same thing!!)
I was able to spec up the options quite easily, it was either a case of i want it or not, colour was by far the hardest choice.
Easily done. I did the same thing earlier in the thread.
Picking a colour was definately the hardest part of ordering for me too. The Demo I had was a Misano and I was quite surprised by how much I liked it. I like Monsoon, as it's quite understated and classy looking. Ties all the chrome elements and the wheels together well too. I went with Estoril in the end as I quite like Blue. Also having seen it in the showroom there is definately something different about it. It's almost got a richness to it, in the way a deeper red might have if that makes sense.
Yes it's an s3 joetidman. I always debadge my cars & fyi ltguy I think the alloy mirrors are plain tacky
Fair play - the stealth look is great!
At least audi offer the option for us all to have what we want.
You're not alone too as on March 1st there was an estoril s3 at derby audi with colour coded mirrors too.
First impressions of my S3 sport back.
Let's just say I picked the car up at 3pm and am still smiling.
Decided to avoid the motorway and travel back via A roads in the rain. Dynamic mode, Quattro and endless power!!! Even the sight of the sub 20mpg couldn't dampen my spirits. A completely different animal to my old diesel A3's and A5. I have well and truly caught the S3 bug.
Will post pics and a proper review once I've calmed down and gave it a clean!!
Good lad. I've got great memories of my first few days with mine when we headed over to North Wales for the weekend. Can still close my eyes and re-live a few of the mountain pass drives.
Hi all new to Forum order placed as per sig, hope to get early Sept, currently driving VW Golf Gti Ed 35 DSG so will wait for new reg if earlier. Lucky enough to get test drive at dealers I purchased from. To condense experience Awesome!! Drove Monday still smiling!!
Cancelled my S3 SB order made in January, but now have sorted things out and signed the paperwork Tuesday this week for the 3 door S3. Got week 21 confirmed, so will have the S3 five weeks there after. Very happy the dealer was able to pull a few strings.
