    I doubt its damaged. More likely just being ragged around the local Sheerness industrial estate by the transporter drivers ;)

    I have the pano roof on my 8P in Ibis White but didn't spec it on the new car as wanted the grey and thought it looked lost on the grey, the roof was the wife's idea and she uses it but for me it was just for show with the contrasting white and black as the roof was completely black but now it only goes half way across the roof.

    Just received an email from my dealer, I was build week 8, and he's just informed me that my car is at the port in Germany awaiting shipping! So let's see how long this takes now!

    Not quite the longest. I'll buy the drinks for anyone who has waited longer than 24 June 2013!

    Crazy thing is part of me is glad I did. Grief, at times the conversation on here can be sad, but often informative and even funny. Anticipation is not all bad. Thanks to Audi-sport.net for keeping many of us semi-sane. (She may say different) I will be a regular visitor even after I get the keys!

    Getting close to Sunday now for pickup.....can someone advise me on what MMI cable I need for an iphone 5?
    I assume they will give me the correct cable on collection? Think it may be a red one?

    iPhone 5 (lightning ) connector is on back order I think, so I've asked for a red collar standard iPod/iPhone cable and I'll use an apple adapter.

    Floor mats - that's odd, I asked my dealer to throw some in for me and he got them next day (sportback, all 4 mats)

    and

    OMG it's getting close now!!!

    I used Blue collar adapter for old iPod Classic which I'll leave in car for music. IPhone 5 links via BT. What's the red collar ?

    One more sleep!!

    Red collar for video from everything I've read. And album art etc, although I'll mostly be using an SD card I think or Bluetooth streaming

    I asked Mark about cables and he said I would get them on the day but seemed a bit wooly about iPhone 5.... Might have to collaborate on that one tomorrow!!!

    I also asked for a boot liner but was quoted a price.... Might have to tell them if you are having free mats then I want me too!!!! ;)

    Different Mark I think Anarch!

    I wanted rubber mats due to our regular trips to Cornwall and the sand in the footwells issue.

    I suppose Robo it just depends on the deal done and what there is left in the pot to play with. You probably drove a harder bargain than me on the car!!

    I just don't think the iPhone 5 cable is generally available in stock so I am fully expecting to get the red standard iPhone cable so will be taking a apple converter with me in my pocket.

    Couple that with the apparent multiple variants of the new lightning cable (with/without video etc) at least we know the red collar standard one works with an adaptor.

    I too thought about a boot liner but thought I'd give the reversible boot mat a go (the factory option). Having seen it in the flesh now I'm actually not that impressed and wished I had saved my money and just bought a rubber boot liner instead :(

    Green Collar Lightning cable AC suffix - no album artwork, no video
    Green Collar Lightning cable AD suffix - with album artwork, no video
    Red Collar 30 pin cable - with genuine Apple Lightning adaptor - with album artwork, with video. But bulky.

    Need to wait for next iteration of Green Collar Lightning cable if you want video and no adaptor!

    Morning all, just one more sleep for some of you before you get your cars. Im sure many of you will feel the day drag in, ( its part of the audi package to have a long wait for the car) but it will pass and then you will be getting the keys to your new cars. I look forward to lots of pics from you all tomorrow, no excuses will be accepted. Have fun and enjoy your collection. :) x

    Old 30 pin for older generation iPods.

    No video, and low res album artwork.

    Are there any of those still in existence with good batteries? :p

    It's a bit hard to post pics when you're driving you know Sandra!!

    Pics from me will be late in the day I think, from deepest darkest Wales as long as they have Wifi!

    One of the advantages of a private plate - no one knows exactly how old your car is.

    Yes, but then everyone knows that's what a lot of people use them for and assume your car is older than it actually is! I do anyway :p

    Well i think its safe to say I wont be picking my S3 up tommorow, no idea if its in the UK or still in Emsden.

    No dealer updates as usual, havent actually received a single bit of info about the build/delivery without me having to go out of my way to contact them.

    That is not true Dave. Anyone on here can probably date most cars with PPs by their specification and quite frankly why is a pp an advantage unless you are embarassed or excited by having a car of a particular age. I just can't be a***d.

    Keep to topic eh ;-)

    I agree most people on this forum would know the difference, but the average member of the public probably cannot tell one A3 model from another let alone how old they are especially in my case as there all the same colour!!

    I buy my cars on 1 March solely for financial reasons as it is the most cost effective. Some may argue but it works for me.

    As for having a new Registration number I don't care at all and wish we could be like the French and not have the 13/63/14/64 silliness.

    However I still see no point whatsoever in trying to hide my car's age or wave it about in a 'mine's newer than yours' way.

    I have better things going on in my life fortunately.

    I agree. I'm not in the least interested in having a new car on the 1 March or 1 September but I am quite happy to accept it means something to some.

    For all those collecting your nice new A3s tonight or tomorrow enjoy having a new car and enjoy driving it. Looks like the weather may even be kind. Mine won't be hear for another month or so but I will enjoy it when it arrives. Have a great day :)

    So what are people doing tonight to kill the last few hours?

    I'm taking my fine lady out for a slap up dinner to try to forget about a truly awful week at work!
