    Thanks, No point kicking off and making a scene, won’t make the DVLA magically get the info they need.

    You have been very good about it Baz, a lot more people should be like you. It will be worth the wait though. Stafford Audi are a fantastic dealership, lovely staff and can’t do enough for you. Hope it’s sorted really soon. :) x

    Thanks Sandra.

    I’ve waited long enough so a few more days or weeks won’t make too much of a difference. More time to find some decent insurance quotes !

    Great drive home - one good point in getting a car from a dealer an hour away I suppose !

    Thought I’d managed to get a nice dry day but by the time I left Stafford it was raining a little.

    Can’t believe how easy it is to get up to “the speed limit” no effort or drama just smoothly does it.

    Loving it so far for sure ! So glad I cancelled the A4 order now

    Daft question, have they kept the Audi beam standard on the s3 and is the rear view mirror the same (no plastic border), heard a couple of things, wondered if they're true?

    Does your manual confirm the torque, not sure about those stated on the config at the moment?

    No Audi Beam but dealer says they will fit for me as I was expecting it. I’m getting Quattro instead of the rings also.

    Frameless rear view is still there

    Not read the manual at all I’m afraid, I can have a flick through later though if you like

    Not heard from outside but there are deffo pops and crackles on the over run when in dynamic with sports gearbox setting. It’s more like a muted bass thump in the cabin though .. want to be able to hear it properly hence thinking of getting the res delete.

    I think this area may have the offending item :-

    Think that muted bass is the soundaktor fake sound speaker. I thought it was an overrun rumble on mine and someone mentioned it’s the fake sound speaker.

    Was told by a dealer that if you have led puddle lights you can just buy the lense that gives you the Quattro or Audi logo for £12. Trying to get the part numbers for just the lenses. A damn sight cheaper than £90 option.

    Have you noticed any difference with the MMI (Gen 2) and the Audi Connect 2.

    Don’t the new ones come with a GPF and the power is back down to 300ps or 296bhp due to this filter.

    Yes they are still illuminated.

    My “Quattro” Audi Beam lenses are being posted to me this week also to complete the open doors at night look.
