    Looking forward to seeing a pile of new 8V's on the road today (I live very close to our local Audi dealer).

    To all those who've struggled to sleep tonight and have had a bloody long wait I hope you have a fantastic car collection experience, have some great drives planned for the weekend, and don't suffer what happened to me (a 51 plate Focus took my driver wing mirror off on a country road on day 2 as the person would slow down - we were at standstill). Be safe, enjoy the experience (and that new car smell) and have have a fantastic day! And don't leave it too long till you get modding ;-)

    I've always wondered where liabilities stand with auto park! You've only got to get an older car with a deflected panel / sensor failure...

    Morning All!

    Just a quick message to everyone collecting today. Hope you have an amazing day! You've waited forever so it's ok if you do a quick wiggle/dance/punch and katate kick the air when you get your keys. In fact go mental, this is your day! :jump:

    Congrats guys and don't forget the pics.

    Enjoy today guys. Great feeling to collect your new cars.

    I'll be looking out for new 14 plate A3/S3's on the roads around Sheffield and Derbyshire from today. I've sent my logbook etc. off to the DVLA to get my private plate transferred onto my 63 plate now the new plates are out.

    Looking forward to lots of pics, oh and drive carefully! :)

    The liability lies with the driver. I'd had auto park for a couple of years on my focus and used it twice. Its a novelty that wears off quickly. If any of the sensors are faulty it will throw up an error...

    Just got back from a long cycle ride, lots of black ice about so whilst all S3 owners will have Quattro take it easy. I had 3 massive moments!

    Also don't forget to check your cars fastidiously for defects, easy to get carried away in the moment and just want to drive it away!

    Slightly jealous as today means my car is no longer the "current" plate, but no doubt everyone collecting today will be smiling!

    Picked mine up first thing this morning. It looks stunning in the spring sunshine. Enjoy the rest of today for those also picking up their new cars today.

    Cheers

    Might have to change my mind again!!!! Audi are selling too many cars, went out for some shopping. 1 mile from home and guess what???


    Yes saw a 14 plate Audi A3, Grey sportback, think the 'What Car Review' best car 2014 has done the job for Audi. However the car once seen does sell it's self. No real need for any Salesmen!!!!!!!"

    If pilot has full LED then they can act as fogs so you don't need them

    Just noticed two tiny chips in my windscreen. I've only done 60miles and absolutely positive no chips were caused by me. Could never have noticed during last nights midnight drive away as was dark. I'm a little annoyed but I doubt that the dealer will do anything. Oh yea my gear knob is also not straight. :(

    At least none of you new owners should have used up any of your 200 allocation of launch controls today as you'll be running in!

    Just spoke to my local dealer and they've punted out 39 cars today (inc 2 S3's). More due out tomorrow. Mine is still on track to build on wk 18 (5th May), it's like torture...

    My dealer had 55 going out today, glad we were there at 7am... giving us a good few hours 'running in'... First reactions are very favourable. Just over 30mpg overall. The acceleration 50-*9 is amazing and the car is so solid. Also the steering in dynamic mode is so much better than I expected. Unfortunately as I have now had a couple of beers (Mrs drove back from Pub!) I have put 'Pizza Express' to bed for the night but will probably have to go and check she's OK a few times as the evening progresses... ;-)
