Anyway ordered the car in February 2012 in misano red. Once I got home I started really looking into the car and saw one in mica that was it mind changed and email sent to Aberdeen Audi. Was originally told I would get the car end of this month which actually meant the car would be delivered to my house while I was away and I wouldn't see it until April. As luck would have it I got a mail in July saying the car was on the way to the uk which was a nice surprise for getting home at the end of the month.

My last couple weeks in Kuwait were the longest I'd ever done. I was actually really nervous about the car as I was worried I wouldn't like the colour having only seen it on the web. Aberdeen Audi were told not to touch it not even to remove the transport protection as the car was going straight to polished bliss for a full detail. Thankfully soon as I saw the car I knew I'd made the right choice.

Anyway here's some pics of it as I collected it from PB

My favourite pic have it as my screen saver

Really looking forward to seeing this lowered! 

 

You'll have to let us all know how it rides now compared to stock.

 

Anyway how the hell did they manage to scratch it !!!!!

Try taking out these little wings (flaps) on the rear fender, it has helped in most cases so far...
Once you change tires to Michelin this even gets worse...by then you will defenitly have to take them away.

Looks like the covers they put on the wing had poo on them. Fingers crossed PB can sort it

I think it's better doesn't seem as harsh over the slightest bump like before. Plus it's more direct when steering into a corner

Stunning !

 

Looks just right too!  How much have they lowered it by?

 

Would love some more pics for the Facebook and Twitter page images.
