    If you see an 8V on your travels put a post in here. Just add rough location and colour of car spotted, but please dont put full registration number. Thank you.

    M4 junction 11

    A3 Sportback. Black, 63 plate. Monday 16th.

    I wonder if we will ever spot a new A3 that is an Audi-sport member? And they can say "that was me!"

    Saw another blue Sportback with the Xenons yesterday, but can't remember where it was now! It would be in either Loughborough, Nottingham or on the A60 somewhere

    North Stevenage but regularly travel to Ware too. Give it 2 months then look out for mine. Maybe the one I saw today was you one you spotted. It was my first non-white spotted and Daytona looked awesome! Now I'm a little worried as I switched from Daytona to Shiraz last minute!

    My company is based in Ware, and I use the 602 occasionally to get to Stevenage, will look out for you once you get yours, not to late to change your mind on colour :).

    The Daytona I see is a 13 plate, not sure if it's same one as can't see if its debadged as always pass it head on, but looks like its heading in or out of Ware via the 602.

    Think I saw you yesterday coming out of Bunny, towards Loughborough at around 5:30 - was that you? Was definitely a new A3 in black anyway but only caught a glimpse as I noticed it at the last minute!

    Drove the entire way from North East London to Center Parcs in Whinefell (Cumbria) last Friday and didn't spot a single A3 8V on my journey (310 miles!). That was until I pulled into the car park and spotted a lovely looking A3 8V Sportback in White (S-Line) with a bike rack on the tailgate. Looked to be a riding on SE suspension.

    Near to me...an externally identical car with one letter different in the registration. Was rather concerned for a moment when I saw it!
