    On my trip to France this week the car spent the days in the visitor car park which was in clear view of the meeting room we were using and I was really surprised on the number of people who when walking past stopped to take a closer look or looked back over there shoulder.

    Also, while in the queue for my eurotunnel train picked up a compliment on how good the car looked from the guy in the next lane driving the Mercedes SL63 AMG and that's a pretty decent looking car in its own right

    Non smoking pack replaces black plastic lighter with a chrome 12v plug and takes out the cup/ashtray that just sits in the cup holder.
    Quite a few threads / pics on here about if you want to see.

    There are already a couple of pics of my car with A3sportbacksmarks from the start of this month in the pics thread but I will post some more after it gets is first proper clean at the weekend weather permitting.

    There is a thread on pros and cons of smoking and non smoking pack but basically you loose the shiny ashtray and gain a chrome surround for your 12v socket which replaces the cigarette lighter socket.

    Daveotto is right. Summary version:

    You lose the Audi ash-tray /coin holder / key holder pot (about 40GBP to buy separately) and the black cigarette lighter cap is replaced with a chrome rimmed cap cover (about 5 GBP to buy separately).

    Ashtray is £15 on ebay. Never got to the bottom of whether the wiring or power rating of the socket was different either.
