Transporter delivered this, early this morning.

Will get better photo when I drive it properly. One rather annoying difference over my 2017 one I noticed. Drive select can't be changed via the *button in the steering wheel anymore.

Other than that the couple of miles I've driven it, it's quite quick (204PS TFSI) and you can't hear the engine, just tyre noise.

Is this an S Line trim or Black Edition?

When your dealer is practically your neighbour... but you can’t have the car until Wednesday! Here it is in the PDI Bay...

Had some Auto Finesse Aqua Coat so decided to use it on the quantum grey.

One thing I've noticed. There's quite a few swirl marks on the paint presumably from the dealer preparing the car. Can these be polished out?
Looks great . You could certainly polish them out, but I feel Quantum will be a never ending battle with swirls unless you take some action like applying a ceramic coating to make your life easier and you being able to sleep a bit better at night!! My new A4 is off to the detailers today for some Gtechniq Ultra ceramic coating prior to me collecting the car at the end of the week.

I was thinking maybe of something like that.

What's the cost these days? I was going to get my 8V A3 done back in 2014 when I took delivery but never got round to it.

I’ve seen prices range from £500-£750.

Swirls will come out with a machine polish . If you don’t want go to the expensive of a ceramic coat , you could always seal the paint and use a high quality wax

I have done Waxaddict Quartz wax that I've only used a few times.

Any recommendations on sealant?
I’ve been using Autoglym extra gloss protection for a while , seems good stuff.
Menzerna & Auto Finesse always make good products , probably worth a look .

Really like it, but need to get a few thousand miles on the clock before I make a final judgment. Compared to the TDI, it is so smooth and quiet. So far it is definitely the right move to go petrol, and the power delivery is nice.

Yeah, I like mine. Clearly lacks the low down torque but in sport mode and higher revs it can fairly shove you into the seat back.

Hoping longer runs make the average mpg better than 25 though

Did do a 40 Mike journey for work the other week and averaged 41mpg on the clock so not too bad.
