    image.jpg It was in the showroom at Watford Audi, it's actually a blue wrap on white. They did a really good job, you could hardly tell even when up close.

    I've kept it fairly straightforward. Got the comfort pack, interior lighting pack, folding mirrors, basic sat nav, black 3d inlays and (hopefully) red brake callipers The last one is not showing up on MyAudi, but know that is not infallible.

    Which leads to another twist to the painful journey of getting this car. MyAudi has it down as a S-Tronic, and I thought I was getting a manual!! I can live with it, was torn between the two, as long as I'm still paying the same final figure

    I'll be glad to get in this car, it's been a trying 6 months

    Yer it's nice, reminds me so kingfisher blue - just in matte.

    I toyed with the idea of buying white and wrapping but never ended up doing so in the end.

    Well we'll see how it goes. I'm sure I'll love it, but has a lot to live up to to follow the TT.
    Got home today to find the V5C on the mat, so no going back now! Only 4 days 15 hours and 20 minutes to go........!

    I can feel your pain. My first test drive was on 18th Feb. It's been a long time coming, and now I'm really impatient now. Last 2 or 3 weeks has been the worst.
    Never waited more than a couple of weeks before. Even the TT was due to be the dealer managers car until I stepped in on 28th August!! He shouldn't have gone on holiday just before new registrations

    The pics don't show it at it's best, but best I could do in 2 minutes, got some driving to do, a S-Tronic to get used to, and some buttons to work out what they do. I may not be around much for a few days!!! :undwech::nogarors4:

    Double whammy for me and the Mrs today! :)

    Changed my 14 plate A4 Black Edition to an A5 Black Edition, and the Mrs had a nice upgrade from a 52plate Clio to the new Facelift Polo! Good Day!! :)

    Stunning PG! :cool::cool::cool:

    Pleased I've stuck with the sepang blue :thumbs up:

    Only a few differences in spec (that I can see) between yours and mine

    No red calipers or piano black trims for me. Same seats, gearbox, HHA. Can't see front parking sensors on yours

    Thanks for pics PG :thumbs up:

    Now go enjoy buddy! :D (From an ever so slightly jealous BH :()

    Well I've managed about 150 miles today. A very different drive to the TT, with the Quattro feeling less obvious. Still not used to the s-tronic, and keep reaching to change gear! Mag ride makes the drive a lot smoother on the ploughed fields that are Yorkshire roads (not Essex cuke2u). I think we'll have some fun together

    might have forgot to run it in gently!!!
