    just a tad lol ... from memory the mark 3 has a fairly large sill and it’s also VERY low !

    Was a ***** to get in & out of in my garage or tight car parks but hey you soon get used to it. All the positives far outweigh.

    Exclusive paint is oot of the equation .....****** all thanks to we know what.....cough cough.... delay of up to 3 months on top of the 4/5 months quoted by the dealer who l spoke with a couple of hours ago
    Not getting another new car just before winter done this with my current car......regretted it big time so its back to the original spec and colour they start gritting the roads up here in Septamber
    Matrix oled rear tail lights purchased and OEM black emblems/Logos

    Problem with buying from DTD.....is that DTD get their discounts directly from Audi so DTD then use a dedicated Audi dealership and in my case it's Grimsby Audi to execute the sale so my dealer told me, if l had to alter the spec of the car l would then have go through DTD all over again and their discount on my model has dropped by £700 in just 2 days Grimsby Audi could never match the DTD discount so the sales guy told me....******

    Very similar spec to my car inside mate but l went rock grey leather instead hate black leather with rotor grey stitching on the seat coverings looking forward to getting the car now the new oled tail lights will give it a more up to date whaooo factor for me personally speaking and make it look right up to date

    On the bright side, no exclusive paint has covered the cost of oled lights.

    the joys of buying a car lol

    Are the oled lights just a case of taking the original ones out & plug in oled or is there a software change required to interface with the fancy new ones ?

    Yeah the price of the lights has offset the extra cost of the paint mate the seller on ebay has been very accommodating as well so all good in the hood at least l still have interior blue design pack to look forward too which does look very special once you've planked yer **** in the driver seat....TT has a very dark interior

    Yeah ours being a s line was black leather / alcantara & it was pretty dark from memory ... but in a modern cool way - but I totally get you wanting to lighten it up, it will enhance the look even more imo.

    I'm guessing they needed to be coded??? So they have the fancy disco theme going on start up.
    From what I gather you can get US spec'd oled tail lights but they don't have the disco theme.

    This is taking the **** when you can't spec individual items on the same spec of car you are buying. :wtf: I get that an 'S' model shouldn't be speccing trims from RS etc but you you should be able to add packs at your disposal to avoid a Vorsprung should you not want this ffs.

    I agree they are pushing you into higher editions models as Car enthusiasts know what they want. Either that or they are trying to stop the ones that "pimp" their 2.0 TDI with honeycomb grills to look like RS models :whistle2: :grin:

    I had to upgrade from the A3 Sport to the A3 S-Line trim in order to be able to spec Matrix Lights together with the Driver Assistance pack (IIRC). On the lower priced trim I could only spec one or the other (according to my dealer anyway). No idea why <shrugs>

    Discount was £10k l have only driven a TT roadster and the TTRS roadster both had 19"s fitted but again both drives l took l had the roof down...so road noise was canceled out l would imagine the 245/30/20 alloys/tyres have a lot to do with the road noise my S3 with 235/35/19 tyres doesn't cope well with most roads surfaces either it can be very noisy the car won't be with me until June

    Our Mark 3 TT was fitted with 19" alloys and didn't have an issue with road noise tbf.
    20's may add a bit of noise, but nothing that will be an issue I am sure and the trade off is of course enhanced exterior visual look from the 20's.

    just configured one but cant have blue or red inlays which i know you want the blue

    The blue satin is not a direct match to turbo blue by the way as we had choice of one with and one without and I didnt quite ike the match

    Err not quite:
    1) There was a tilde
    2) ASN automatically numbers each post.

    Contest the argument not the person.

    Congrats on the order - it deserves its own thread but this thread is about the new 8Y S3.

    Finally someone on here has hit the nail on the 8y S3 head....very simply put it is marmite...Polarizing etc etc
    The New G8 R is a cracking looking hatchback especially with 19s and the Batwing on the rear/top of the tailgate my spec added up to 51k think every option bar the tacky looking leather option worked out far cheaper than my TT
