Built in Belgium, paint will be soft as the proverbial stuff and a nightmare to look after, expect a lot of heart ache scratch, scuff and swirl wise as these mark like crazy.
dont like the A1 so this aint gonna be any different.

Wife mobile like existing A1. Not bad as a 185 with S-Tronic. But still one for the ladies.

I'm keen on one in Sportback shape - white with the quattro exterior styling pack. Will probably aim for Sept. delivery.

Placed my order a few weeks ago, current build week 37 estimated... Working on reducing that!



Also have free servicing agreed if delivered before 30th June. When I placed the order the dealer and Audi UK reckoned no problem. This is also being sorted to be honoured even with late delivery. Will keep you posted! Note that technically the free servicing on the A1 offer is not supposed to apply to the S1 at all.



I just placed my order with following spec.



Audi S1 Sportback

Vegas Yellow with Brilliant Black Contrast Roof

18" 5 Spoke S Matt Black Alloys

Nappa Leather Super Sports Seats with Yellow Backrest Covers and Yellow Contrast Stitching



Packages;

Quattro Exterior, Quattro Interior, Tech, High Gloss Black, Storage and Luggage



Options;

Advanced Key, Auto Dimming Rear View Mirror, BOSE Surround Sound System, Cruise Control, Door Mirrors - Heated and Folding, Front Centre Armrest, Hill Hold Assist, Mobile Prep High - with Audi Connect, Parking Distance Control - Front and Rear, Privacy Glass, Rear Floor Mats



Post delivery mods;

Wrap lower tailgate in black (to match the press pics - this doesn't seem to be a UK factory option)



Things I didn't spec;

Alloy Gear knob - deletes 'S' specific one

Panoramic roof - expensive option that only adds weight (I have an MR2 for open top driving)

Smokers Pack - don't smoke!

CD Changer - doesn't anyone still use CD's?



Things I wish it had and will miss;

Adaptive Headlights (and there's no fogs to VCDS as cornering lights to make up for it :( )

Adaptive Cruise Control
Audi S8 D2 Nogaro Blue "Pace Car"
Audi TT 8N Cab Nogaro Blue
Hyundai Tucson Polar White
Audi RS3 8V Panther Black "Baggy" (sold)
Audi S1 8X Vegas Yellow "Bumblebeast" (sold)
Audi SQ5 8R Glacier White (sold)
VCDS Genuine Rosstech USB-HEX+CAN Owner - PM if you want any coding/mods done in Dorset in exchange for beer/money :roll:

Nice one. S-tronic or manual?

If my Mrs needed a car I think this would really fit the bill. When she does need one I think this is what I will buy as I would quite like to drive about in it as well from time to time.
