Have been ready to order for a couple of weeks now after toying with several options, settled on Ara blue with matt alumin styling, roof rails, privacy glass, rear view camera, mag ride, matrix lights, folding mirrors, 8J wheels all round, sport seats with electric adjustment, phone box & extended upholstery. Not sure about the wheels as in 8J size only 2 options (neither which I like), new type 5 spoke or original 5 blade in chrome only - no option fot titanium finish! On the 8v the standard exhaust is loud enough for me & has plenty of blips, crackles & pops which I love, but I hear the standard exhaust on the FL is muted so might have to add the sports exhaust! It would be nice to be able to do a test drive but not aware of any dealer within 50-75 miles of me who has one.

So with the sport exhaust to add to the above the cost is about 53k & Audi dealer offered 33k for my 8v with 6k miles on clock (he's allowed some depreciation based on trade done March 2018) - so it's going to cost me some 20k plus for virtual display, lighter engine (should reduce understeer), roof rails and marginal additional power & plus the cost of some different wheels to source - is it worth it?

Well now that the initial excitement of preparing the order has worn off & some common sense has crept in, I'm not so sure. Would I be better off by upgrading the 8v by completing the brakes modification, add some MSS springs, add better rear anti roll bar, minor engine remap etc? All of which would be considerably cheaper than 20k and I would end up with a better performing car like what Audi should have made. Other car options with comparable performance & luggage space for the price just doesn't exist for me. So I'm still pondering but a recent turbo lag occuring on the 8v may persuade me to give up the 8v before this worsens & some of the problems reported on this site start to hit me.

I would probably consider a 33k 8v with 6k on the clock!

Right options all ticked, grand total of £57,275......  May look at changing a few things but pretty happy.

 

Just got to talk numbers with Audi and see if i can get it to what i'm happy with.   Would also like a press car drive.

Stopped speccing my RS3 Performance saloon at £61.5k.....

That's like for like spec to what my car has now albeit floret silver and gloss black pack on the RS3 because there isn't a carbon exterior pack. And you still can't get electrically adjustable Supersports seats so if I slummed it and went for manual SS seat that would be £62.25k

Hi,

 

Could you please drop me a message on where you managed to get your 8% discount? So far, best I've seen from CarWow has been 3.2%. Early days though, hoping for more offers... 8% would bring it into realistic man-maths territory!  :D

I got just under £3k off list - approximately 5.5% off directly with the dealer. Not too bad given the original response was 'no discount' when I inquired a couple of months ago. Pretty happy with that - could have saved a couple of hundred £ if I'd gone with a broker but didn't like the fact that the deposit / balance was paid to him not the dealer and that pick up would have been from his premises... the alarm bells started ringing (rightly or wrongly) at that point.

 

Ended up going for:

Mythos black with Gloss Black styling pack, Sport Pack, Comfort and Sound Pack, Panoramic roof, Matrix LEDs, Super Sports seats in black / rock grey, Privacy glass, Extended upholstery pack, folding / auto-dimming door mirrors, Audi Phone Box, rear side airbags, 4th year warranty and standard alloys... will swap those off for my current wheels. I think I ticked the box for squeaky brakes and rattly exhaust on start-up too but will need to check my order form  :D

 

Looking forward to tracking the build and picking it up sometime in March.
