    Warren is probably sneaking round the compound in his hoodie with a camera with a telephoto lens on it, or at home trying to have his 6 sleeps in one night lol. :lazy::) x

    For what it's worth Warren, I would wait until day of collection to see it for the first time. Don't risk losing all that nervous excitement!

    Agreed, I'm going to wait. Was good to see the S1 as I'd not seen one in the flesh.

    I think a new set of shades will be finishing touch and be useful for the cars trip to france. Go on Warren, a set of oakleys will be so cool. :) x

    I'd love to, but because I need prescription lenses a new set of Oakley's now costs me £550+ these days with the their polarised iridium lenses. Before my eyes went downhill used to be a cheap affair. Can't wear contacts either as my eyes are too dry (the lenses roll up on my eyeball and pop out onto the table - normally during a meeting in air conditioned office or in the car!).

    Got a pair of Oakley's about 10 years ago and they are still going strong. I'm usually pretty careful with glasses so they've lasted well, could do with some new lenses but last I looked they didn't have them on the website. Keep meaning to get in touch with them to see if they can be got.

    Anyway could do with a pair of prescription sun glasses too... must get around to that!

    Luckily I can wear contacts even though I don't all the time - the drying and curling up sounds unpleasant to say the least!

    Finance paperwork completed, deposit paid, so everything is out of the way in respect administration & finance. Just need to take driving licences in on day of collection and that is it.

    Got £550 more on my trade in than I was expecting and no hard sell on GAP / additional services.

    This turned up today (courtesy of a recommendation from the RS3 boys), a jack puck that protects the seam welds under the car when lifting it (for doing wheels / spacers / mounts etc.). £12 off Fleabay makes it a steal and vital part of any S5 owner/tinkerers toolkit.

    S1 looks like a little mean machine. However... the OCD's amongst us are not going to tune well with the fog grilles...

    :idea: Getting more for trade in is a bonus. Thats the £550 for the Oakleys covered then Warren. You know you dont need the paper stuff in your wallet anyway, lmao. :) x

    If I did the missus would castrate me with what I've spent on 'bits'. I'm paying for the holiday in June, so it will go towards that!

    Oakleys Inmates are my choice at the minute I've accumulated several Oakleys over the years, best sunglasses on the market imo.

    Agreed. Started with Frogskins in '96 and had various flavours ever since. Even buy sunglasses frames and have them skinned with clear reactolite Oakley lenses for day to day use.

    Insurance now sorted, increased my monthly premium by £10 a month for rest of policy duration so not a big jump.

    V5 dug out from office cabinet, all the service docs / owners manual collected together. We're good to go, roll on Thursday morning!

    Paid my fiver to see spec on ERWIN and it looks complete so kool and the gang!

    Haha this was the first thing I noticed about the S1 too!

    Not long now Warren! Can't wait to see all the pictures of it, extremely jealous. S5 is a stunning looking motor.

    My favourites are my Oakley Why 8.1 in Black Chrome frame and Bronze lens. Impossible to find now that they're discontinued. Unfortunately they broke and I'm left with a standard pair of Oakley Why 8.2 with Black Chrome frame and Black lens :(

    Have you tried getting in touch with them to see if they can do a repair? I haven't got round to it yet but someone I know sent their sunglasses in for service recently and thought it was worth doing. Got the address and phone number off them if you want it, although sure going via the website would achieve the same thing. ;)

    Unfortunately the frame snapped in half in a car accident a few years ago and I simply left them in the car :p Since then I've not come across another pair!

    24 days from build week to delivery, and I know Brian has pulled out some stops to get mine through the PDI process quicker. My dealership are expanding at quite a rate of knots into other brands and their PDI centre is working 7 days a week at the moment to manage the backlog of cars (can you imagine what first week of March & September must be like?). I think its about average really as most of the dealers are largely similar sizes. If they had to pre-allocate less cars in the UK to secure stock I think our cars would come quicker, but such is the nature of the beast.

    I thought that would happen Warren. Im lmao@your countdown in hours and minutes, you got it bad Warren. This is the best and worst part about waiting. Just look at it like this, you can take 24 hours off that for sleep time so tht takes a chunk off the 73 hours part. I hope your taking a full day off work to collect. They will lay on a big fireworks display, champagne (which you cant drink) nice little bbq and then unveil the car. That has made me think of a few different tunes, :) x

    I'll get one for you later, but this is the items if you want a closer look: AUDI A3 A5 Rubber Jack Pad Trolley Jack adapter Pinch weld Rubber block | eBay

    Had another little delivery turn up this morning, these will take care of playlist duties whilst the HDD will hold the entire music library.

    I've got a little bottle of magic incoming on the recommendation of DMC: Hydro2 100ml- Spray & Rinse Coating - CarPro UK
    [​IMG]

    Supposedly you spray it with a bottle sprayer onto a wet car then after a couple of minutes you spray it with water and the water just beads off (at which point you towel dry). Intrigued to see how it works, will report back.

    Thx, that link is grand, looks like an easy make!

    Had toyed with one for the BMW e92 but the M suspension was so low I had to reverse the car up onto wooden wedges to get just enough clearance for the jack, I'd never have got one of those in too... Great idea tho.

    Yes it won't be long before the cleansing begins and 'looking after' of your black S5 :)

    It is a labour of love but well worth it .... not many sleeps left now lol so your PAIN will soon be over :)

    Fitting all your new bits is gonna keep you busy for a few weeks anyway.

    The new car feeling & experience is nearly upon you !!!
