    I haven't hid the fact that I am no fan of the A3/S3 design, finding it very vulgar personally.

    I found these 'real life' photos on an Auto Trader ad very honest to say the least, it certainly does seem to ride very high off the ground..little bit mini monster truck to me with that grill. I was hoping the S was going to see some design tweaks.

    ...£41,730..

    I’d say that still has the transport blocks in the springs

    As @A3simon has stated above. It still has transport blocks fitted. Also when it has plates fitted the grill would look much better.

    Ah that may explain it, it did seem rather drastic.

    That's a good news as I selected the damper control in the final version of the S3' order that I've placed.

    I’ve seen both the saloon and sportback in the showroom now, and they do sit at that height. I asked specifically about it and was told they were not in transportation mode.

    Frankly they both looked ridiculous and not in the slightest bit sporty, they were verging on SUV ride height.

    Yeah, I'm in. I always look YouTube videos and got this feeling too.
