Hello mate, its a MY11 2.0L TDi(170) S-line in Ibis white, with black milano leather - heated and lumbar, bluetooth, Bang&Olufson, tech pack - high (hdd sat nav/AMI/cruise control), parking sensors - rear, xenon's and climate control etc, think iv covered everything there!

I was looking for quite a while for one that ticked all my boxes and i finally found it. Oh except the alloys, it had standard 18s on but i wanted the 19' 5-segment jobbies, they said they are 4k with tyres through there parts dept!!! - i made them a deal-breaker and after a lot of phonecalls and visits to the manager the saleswoman eventually got them thrown in!! well chuffed.

Also got the (return to invoice) GAP insurance term doubled to 4years and 100 off down to 429, a ridiculously low finance rate of 3.(something?)% and 2 years free servicing.

Bring on next friday!!

Congrats. I'm sure there will be plenty of Vagcom cables at the Donnington meet. Bring it along there if you can wait that long!

Looks great mate nice alloys too, if a pita to clean, just like the 7 spoke ones. Gotta love that mpg figure too.
Re the vagcom mods, nice guide and some links here VAG-COM/VCDS for Dummies - a reference (draft) and a guide to using it at the top of that thread.
and some stuff on VIM here Enable VIM TV-playback using VCDS/VAG-COM in your Audi MMI | trick77.com

He clearly lives on top of a hill and took that reading when he reached the bottom!

At least that's how us V8 boys choose to see it!

That's where the 3.0tdi Quattro scores. Not far off S5 fun and not far off (often better IMHO ) 2.0 Tdi fuel economy.
