Basically thought I'd make this to give me a place to flood you all with pictures and give you all my thoughts on car as I live with it for the next 2years.

So arrival day:

After thinking I'd be waiting all day for the car to come from Eastbourne the guy called and asked if he can get to me early bonus! There no special handover with a lease as I found out, but the guy was lovely ex traffic cop instructor, he even went out his way to show me that on the long term memory that he'd averaged 56mph and 34mpg and told me he likes to come early as less traffic on the road for stone chips. After that I thought was only fair if I offered to drive him to the station haha!

Once I got the ex traffic cop out my passenger seat I managed to have a play.
All seems brilliant I'm struggling little with the tech but I think this is more down to all been new to me and hopefully will come with time, bear in mind haven't been in a Audi since my Mk1 TT and that had zero tech.

Had play with the drive select, the difference when you find dynamic is awesome the noice is unreal and the delivery of power! I wasn't expecting. I'd sort of told my self that it will be fast but now it's come it's totally blown me away.

Then after picking Mrs up for some dinner tried to show her... looked in mirror.... undercover Bobby!
Pulled over in less than 6 hours :( luckily he just wanted to give me a good telling off and on my way as I held my hands up and admitted I did wrong (more of them should be like this).

After that I was bit more nervous so managed to try out the comfort and sort of long distance driving and again blow away the fact you can go from roaring animal to a quite luxury saloon is great

Then had a few jobs right out in the sticks to look at (muddy, skinny, bendy roads) so I managed to get a feel of how it handles. And so far seems great I had plenty of grip and didn't feel nervous going in to any corner but will need more time with this to get used to it as I've come from fast small 3door hatch's it's a bit of a learning curve for me.

Look forward to people's thoughts and opinions!

Now for the good bit pictures !!

Hi


P.s why do you all blank out number plates ? Am I going to have issues now I've posted with it on? And if so how do I scribble it out on iPhone ?

Had some HD wax left over from my old car so decided to give it a coat to protect it as I can imagine that the dealer hasn't put anything on !

P.s I've figured out how to loose the plates just not been able to delete my old pics I'll wait for admin to pop in :)

I see you got Pirellis on yours... I got Hankooks. How are you finding them? No problems with the Hankooks as far as I can tell. Haven't really driven it hard though but steering response is way better than in my previous S5.

Yer so far so good but I'm only 300miles in and still getting used to the handling as it's a lot different to my previous car but I'll update in a few hundred miles as to how I'm finding them :)

Plus we've had great weather since it arrived so not had them in wet yet.

Nice, best colour ;)

Check your tyre pressure, mine hadn't been changed from the storage pressure of 3.6 bar!

Thanks ! I was really surprised as I was panicking thinking that it was only registered day before and insured that morning so thought bet they can't find it on system. But after he gave me a good telling off asked to look around and was asking questions about it saying it's a beautiful car! Haha

How do you like the Red interior? I also ordered an S4 in Daytona Gray Pearl with the red interior. :)

Amazing looking car. Enjoy. :)

It's the best part of the car other than the power ! The inside just makes you feel a million dollars!
I know the other colours will be the same but it's hard to explain I think because there such an bold colour your instantly drawn to looking at them. I'll get some pics up but every time I go to take some it's dark :(

I can't wait!!! Mine is currently on a ship heading to Halifax... I hope to have her before the end of the month. :)

Are you getting any accessories? Like boot tray etc?

No I don't think so. I've got key ring, carbon Audi sport mug and the red gecko air freshener but unless I need anything. Although I did buy these before we found out we was having a baby girl, hopefully she will wear them. But nothing really for the car it's self.

They're cute mate :tearsofjoy:. Boot tray maybe if use if your putting dirty buggies into the boot. Just trying to figure out to either go Audi or third party.

I think I saw in the manual that you can flip the boot floor over for damp/dirty items. Don't know if that's an option or a standard feature. Not had chance to check.

Had a good run out today, mainly motorways but got some back roads in, average mpg 27 not the best but I didn't buy for that and I've had some fun in dynamic mode ! I've had plenty of grip tyres seem to be great not seen the traction light pop on yet :) only issue is probably me I'm struggling with the switch over from a manual to a auto :( hopefully that will come with time.

Anyway after that had to give her a clean as at a fancy meal tomorrow :) and also took some interior pics finally !

I bought a genuine audi boot protector for my b8, and was immediately disappointed in what my £70 got me. This time I got the salesman to chuck it in as part of the deal. Otherwise I'd have been buying an aftermarket piece for half the price. Don't get me wrong it fits well and does the job. But its about 2 quids worth of cheap plastic than anyone else can successfully knock up as well.
