I had a 330Ci and still miss it now and then.
Fantastic engine and a very nice ride indeed.
Sure it´s a bit common but still a really good car.
Didn´t really fancy the new 3-series so i bought an A4 Avant instead but i still have my Z3 coupe to play with so.........
The S3 to me are...
Hopefully you can polish it out.
I asked the dealers about getting a paint protection done to the car but was told i had to wait 4 months for the solid colour to fully harden.
Seems like i need to take care when i wash it then....
This time around i did not want leather so this suits me fine and yes the Strato cloth looks quite good actually.
If you order a A4 make sure to get the sportseats with electric lumbar support as they are very very good and one of the must haves.
Found out some more nice features of the car...
Looking forward to it.
Had a A3 SB on order since december but it was delayed a couple of times and thank´s to that i got the oportunity to cancel it and order this instead.
With the nice campaignprice of the A4 the cost was only £1500 more so i´m happy as can be:racer:
Spec as follows:
S line 1.8 T quattro 163 PS 6 speed
Seats: Sports Seats
Electric Lumbar Support
Upholstery: Strato cloth
Seats black, Dashboard black-black, Carpet black, Headlining silver
Probably part of the delay was due to the new 1,8 TFSI engine that i ordered,was told that my order with that engine was one of the first so....
I´m guessing now but my understanding is that in every productionweek there are a certain kind of specced cars for instance engine of choice.
My euro calculations where a bit of,the prices in GBP are as follows.
Sportback:265000 SEK -11%=236000 SEK=About 17000£
A4 Avant:311100 SEK - discount=259000=About 18500£
Should be more right,anyway a very good discount.
I discussed the resale value with the seller and the heavy discount will not affect the value later on.
Ofcourse the value will go down when the new A4 arrives later this year but the new Avant modell will not come at that time but about a year later.
I got a bigger car with more equipment and...
I know what you mean and it was one of my concerns but on the other hand it´s a well known engine and compared to the newer TFSI-line a bit more on fuel but still easy to remap and get about 200Hp from it.
I wanted the Avant from the beginning but did not have the finances for...
The specs on the Sportback was a Standard with Proline-pack.
Proline=Comfort package(ACC/E-windows,E-mirrors,Concert II,etc)
Total price on that spec about Eur 24000,without discount=Eur 26000.
The Avant has all of the above and S-line...
So my Sportback that i ordered at 20th december have been delayed again and the latest info said week 16(ETA was week 10-12).
Now i´m not really happy about it and have told the stealers that i don´t find this acceptable and wanted some kind of compensation,meanwhile the Audi A4 Avant 1,8T...
No,not yet but should be very similar to the 2,0TFSI but a tad slower i guess.
I´m told that the car i have on order are one of the first so i will do a writeup in a couple of weeks,been on order since X-Mas:tumble:
A friend of mine ordered his with another engine,took a month,order to...
