    Well I kept adding extras and there is other bits I wish I had gone for, would have liked the adaptive xenons and heated seats for the cold winter months!! But like you say cant have everything.

    Also want the RNS-e but am considering a retro fit after I get it, when I ordered it I didnt really know what it did but reading on here it looks like a good bit of kit!

    Did you have to pay extra for sprint blue then?

    i opted for the exclusive colour when you tick that box and send the order in for some reason you can't change your spec without cancelling

    Nice to see some more facelifts coming through, the Sprint Blue will be pretty rare on an S-line being that it's an exclusive colour.

    I would have loved Quartz Grey but that would mean no other options so I just went for a standard pearl colour.

    That looks like a really nice spec you have ordered there Phil, looking forward to seeing some pics.

    I guess only time will tell as the CR engine is pretty new so no idea what to expect with regards to problems etc... but fingers crossed and all that!

    Not got a delivery date yet - awaiting info from audi via our lease company.

    It was a long thought out process as to what to go for - eventually plumped for a 2.0T S-line in misano red- currently got a 2.0 TDI in black and fancied a change back to the petrol & 200 horses was something I couldn't resist!

    Misano nice! Have to admit I was tempted by that colour as it does look really good. To be honest I changed my colour choice quite a bit before ordering that was the most difficult for me! Always had blue cars so decided to keep the trend going by opting for the Deep Sea Blue as i like the look of it.

    Cheers chaps - I've liked Misano for a while and just couldn't resist! - previously had two black colours in a row (Leon Cupra & A3 TDI) and I fancied a change and as I plumped for S-Line it was an easy choice to make.

    The colour was easy to choose for me - it was almost everything else I thought about for a fair bit of time (diesel v petrol, 1.8 dsg v 2.0t manual, A3 v scirocco, etc!). I'm still more than happy with my decision so hopefully it means the thinking time was worthwhile!

    I liked the scirroco too, also test drove a leon tdi and golf and initially was looking at petrol cars so looked at the the s3, new impreza and a few others...

    when i decided on diesel i wanted audi as first choice but looked at others just to compare, always been an admirer of the a3.. cant wait to finally own one!

    Got mine yesterday done about 100 miles so far in it and its a great car to drive, much better than the Rover I part ex'd anyway!!! Just trying to work out to control the radio etc whilst driving as aint used to it yet and need to see if I can my phonebook to sync with the GSM prep but think my phone doesnt work with it so will have to cope! I can recieve calls OK and dial if I know the number but cannot access phonebook. Overall am really pleased with the car :)

    Well to quote my dealer yesterday, he said the blackberry processors work too fast for the car bluetooth to process so the newer ones dont sync properly. And apparantly in germany they change their phones less often than UK so the phones that work better are the older ones! Bit **** really - will keep searching for a phone that works as will buy a new phone but dont want an old one really!
