    Congrats on the new motor and well done for keeping the colour quiet for so long.

    It's been a tough 7 months keeping it quiet I'll admit that.

    Looks great..how did you get the black pack as I was not sure that was an option when I bought mine..the wing mirrors look great

    Have you gone for any paint treatments.

    Freekin' awesome!
    Loving the Ara and black/CF combo. How did you get the black pack? It's not officially available in the UK until MY19. Along with a Vorsprung trim at SQ5 money for the 2.0 TFSI.

    About time too. At least one wait is over. My loaner arrives today...what's it gonna be??

    Thanks lads.
    Cheers bud!

    I got Audi to paint all the bits black, but they haven't done it properly so rejected collection of the car.

    I didn't even know it was going to become available tbh I just knew that the EU cars and American can get black editions.
    Ended up phoning TPS and Glasgow + Edinburgh Audi parts for a price to buy them all - £3,773.63 excluding fitting haha.

    However I still had my pants pulled down to paint front grills etc and recalibrate the front camera systems because the bumper was being removed.

    So have you not collected then until they fix? Black does look good with Ara, as appears to be a must have on the RS3's

    Nope I have not.

    In the process of writing my complaint to the body shop manager.

    Yeah Ara with the black pack is definitely a must, chrome looked not bad either...

    Pick up next Sunday now probably.

    Stunning colour in the sun light, my phone can't seem to get a true picture of how good it looks.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Sorry just noticed this post mate, I posted above about it - had my pants pulled down by Audi to paint them.

    And yeah it's booked in for the 30th of this month for full new car correction and Gyeon Ceramic Coatings all over.

    Wing mirrors definitely a favourite of mine, expensive but well worth it.

    Looks great but I am not sure I would pay £4k+ for the black pack...although would go for the wind mirrors..which I assume most of he money went!!!

    I have gone for the Gtechniq Ultra coating ..not sure if there is much difference with Gyeon.

    Really chuffed with the car and love the v6 growl in dynamic...

    Thankfully never paid that much for the black stuff lol. The wing mirrors were £500 from Audi parts dept.

    Yeah I have been a big fan of gtechniq for a few years now but liking the gyeon stuff at the minute.

    Have you got any pics of your car?

    No RS but an S-Line Q7 will do. At least I’m mobile again.

    Basically took £120 off the cost, the window trims had to be wrapped but both attempts I rejected it due to it peeling. So took the cost of the wrapping off and I've agreed to take the car as is until they give me a price tomorrow to replace all of the trims with the original Audi parts as they refuse to paint them due to rear quarter windows not being able to separate from the trim and would need to be replaced completely.

    I'll officially take delivery of it on Saturday though and return at a later date for the trims.

    Some teaser shots of the car after the PPF has been applied to the front of the car (bonnet, bumper, headlights, wing mirror caps, gloss trim on grill, wings, A pillars, start of the roof) Also had all of the piano black bits PPF'd around the car too as these swirl realllly easily.

    SunTek PPF used on the bonnet and I believe XPEL was used everywhere else but ill get a full run down when I collect the car tomorrow.

    I'm afraid I haven't thought of anything for the wheels at the minute I just want to enjoy the car as is. Maybe an SQ7 wheel would be a choice if anything in future.

    @CC-SQ5 Totally stunning looking SQ5 :thumbs up:

    It's hard to truly see the effects of the fronts tints (usually not into front tints), but it looks to be nice and discreet?
