Was just planning on transforming it into the build thread when car delivered
Once you load up pics of your new car I'm sure members will show more interest .
Apologies if it went off track a little lol
You got any plans for it when it arrives?
Will be straight to the detailers for Gyeon Ceramics all round. Ramair intake and elbows, Ghost Autowatch. Will see where that takes us.
ASN rules no pics and it didn't happen lol
Cars been in UK for a few days now but won’t get to the dealer before Christmas unfortunately so it’s a 6th January delivery to me.
Had a go in a Turbo blue saloon yesterday just out of curiosity as l had inquired about a RS3 Saloon with this dealership but its now not available to order never will l gel with this car.....aint in the same league as my 8v no Whao factor even my Mrs agreed with me the exterior design is clumsy looking from the front and rear
Even in the above render you can see how out of proportion the 8Y is compared to the 8V, it doesn’t looks right at all.
Damn .... that's a blow the RS3 is not available to order !
Such a shame you don't like the Merc as the CLA A35 or 45 is a stunning looking car in saloon form - but I get its styling is not for you .....
Hopefully something else will emerge that does appeal mate ... but I'm not sure what at the moment.
Through some searching seemingly the TTS is to get a power increase ie the same as in the GOLF 8 R came across this model Vorsprung 320 TTS 50 320 tfsi
TTS could be your best option then yeah.
That sounds great, but knowing Audi it will be incredibly overpriced
yes on paper it sound very good indeed RRP is around £56k with a £800 of option l got offered one with a £8k deposit for £529 overall discount including the Audi finance contribution £9000
l am going to contact the Porsche dealer again because he quoted me £660 a month with a £10k deposit and according to the website calculations the exact same spec comes to £641 a month which makes no sense as he said his quote included a discount....
Have you gone down the broker route?
Just wondering how they compare to main dealer finance packages. Magnitude finance are offering packages at around the 6.9% which seems pretty high to me?
6.9% is shocking when you take into account what the actual interest rates are sitting at.
My thoughts exactly.
You would think they would pass on some sort of discount if only to stimulate sales??
Audi's interest rates are also shocking, BMW seemed to be the only manufacturer who dropped their rates to something sensible
Porsche is VAG financial services with the same 6-4% APR mate its been like this since Covid
Agreed my APR on my S3 was 4-6% hence BMW are out selling Audi
Too Mercedes looking for me lol A35 Sounds guff as well
You reckon you could get it reduced??
That is significant when you consider BMW is 2.9%, I managed to get 1.9% on my TCR.
Going back to 6% Apr would be hard to swallow
Yeah even the 45 doesn’t sound good at tick over ... but it does sound good when you hammer it up the Rev range & you get some nice exhaust feedback coming down the gears rapidly too. No RS3 sound track though. I do love the look of the CLA especially from the rear.
Cla 35/45 is a big car as well for me, Avril's car is used for carrying peeps and stuff after these restrictions l am going to test drive a few cars,the value of my own car is pretty high at the moment

Just been watching Evo car of the year & the BMW M2 CS looks interesting
Only BMW Anoraks with deep pockets would buy these mate
omg £75k !
I didn’t realise
£75k and upwards.....they're all sold i here so hyped up prices such is the greed of these type of people
As good a car as it looks, it ain’t worth that kind of money.
The Car industry in general manufacturing and choice of new and used variation of premium German models of Audis etc etc on new,nearly new/ex demos is dire ghost town like mate l have hunted high and low for weeks....anyways
Ha ha yes Merry Christmas mate
Yeah I must confess I’m quite pleased my car hunting days are over for a few years as it appears to be a wilderness out there at the moment.
Just found something out that’s really disappointed me and never picked up on on my test drive.
On the 8V S3 as you will know there’s a range of displays you can flick through including the single dial sports display. As it turns out the new style Rev counter we have seen on the new S3 models is a European only feature and isn’t programmed into the UK S3s. Therefor you have no sport dial display.
What on earth are they thinking??
Love the sports display on my 8V.
For the 8Y is that missing for both sizes of virtual cockpit?
Seemingly it only comes with Edition 1 or Vorsprung models.
Just another reason to avoid Audi, the only models that interest me are the R8 and RS variants. All the standard models, even the new S models are dull as dishwater. Only the current S5 in the right spec looks decent, but then it has a Diesel engine so that ruins it.
That is terrible - that readout option was previously for S models regardless of the VC size or type - shame on Audi.
At least you know now before the car arrives so you can get your head around it I suppose.
Completely agree! The CS was the final hurrah before production ended for that M2. Plenty picked up the non CS M2 Comp for great deals over the last 6 months or so
Your new S3 10-5" virtual cockpit has been taken straight out of new A1 mate cost cutting in a way, the same as you may know that magnetic damper control/19s has been deleted from the S3 Saloon as has the illumination on the cup holders/Bang & Olufsen speakers
Ye need to Go for Vorsprung s3 for the Hockey stick style Rev counter.
Edition 1/Vorsprung tfsi/derv models have the 12-3" vc but but no Hockey stick rev counter hence all the negative comments about the standard kit/option choices on here
