[Audi A3/S3] A3 TDI S-LINE DSG Purchased


Recommended Posts

Hi Andrew, welcome to Tyresmoke laugh.gif

8-10 weeks isn't bad, although I was told 8 weeks as well and it took 4 months in the end. I think the supply problems they were having with the gearbox have eased now, though.

I am pleased with mine, although I've not been happy with the fuel consumption. It also arrived without some of the kit it should have had, which has been a bit of a headache. Overall though it's a great car. It handles well, goes pretty quickly for a soot chucker, and looks good inside and out.

What colour are you getting? Options?

Yeah I'd get the xenons rather than just the headlight washers, it doesn't cost much more. I've got the rear parking sensor as well and find it very handy, mainly because my parking is rubbish. I also have the heated seats, but they're not really necessary with the half leather upholstery.

I ordered the storage pack mainly for the extra 12v socket, which it came with at the time. If I was ordering now I'd just get the luggage pack. The extra storage bits are not really that useful. Can't get a proper AA map in the seat back pocket, for example.

Had mine for 4 weeks now, happy as a very happy chappy grin.gif

I would take the quoted 8-10 weeks with a pinch of salt as i was told that and it actually took 5 months for the car to arrive

Zool, i would chase the dealer as they have a habit of not telling you if the car is delayed until you hassle them

I was also told the delays i encountered were down to Sline specific parts
