Hi folks,

Another A3 Sportback ordered! This time a 1.4TFSI Sport with the following:

Phantom Black (GF's choice, guess she wants me to spend more time washing the car o_O!)
Comfort Pack
Privacy Glass
DAB Radio
SD Sat Nav
Illuminated Vanity Mirrors
Storage Pack

I'm in two minds about Roof Rails though - do they "enhance the sportiness" of the car or are they a take them or leave them option? I could add them or swap out the privacy glass for them. What do you think?

Also I have gone with the standard Sport 17" Alloys as I think the Kinetic look a little fussy, would have liked to stretch to the 18" as they looked great on the model I saw last week but 595 on wheels would mean I might as well have gone for an S-line for the little extra it would cost.

I thought the roof rails were standard on the sportback? Must admit I kind of like them. In white i'd be tempted to go for black ones, but with the Phantom Black I think it's look quite smart to have the aluminium rails.

Nice spec, should look good :). I've not seen too many with those wheels so that should set it apart a bit, and I think adding the roof rails is a good call. For me the privacy glass can kind of throw the 'balance' out a little bit so I didn't pick that, but sure it will look good in black.

Guess the illuminated vanity mirrors was the gf's choice as well !

Thanks! Yep the wheels were something I thought lots about, the standard Sport 17" look a bit plain and I've seen lots of the Kinetics about, a few nice Vids on Youtube showing the 15 spokes off.

I did have to make a few concessions in order to secure some of the other goodies :).

Looks great.

I am jealous about your delivery date though, mine's been quoted a month after.
