I was going to go for Daytona again, after the A1, but my A1 was built and at the show room, so no waiting, and white was not really my thing, but have grown to really like it (Glacer that is, still not keen on Amalfi cream).

Not to many Brilliant red ones around, i had the choice of a misano one which was nice, but had no spec on it.

But Brilliant red with sunroof will look great. Not too sure if the sun roof cuts into head height like it did on my previous A3 8P sportback, being 6' 2", it kept glancing my head lol.

One colour that has grown on me is the Dakota grey, maybe next time.

Yeah wasn't sure on the Misano red as it's an extra £525 and brilliant red is free. Can look a little orange in some light as well. can't decide if the sunroof is a worthwhile option. At £950 its expensive. Be good to see one but hardly any dealers have ones with sunroofs and if they do they are on demo at the mo!! Looked for pics but can't find any interior pics only exterior. How did it impact on headroom? Was it a lot?

It wasn't too much, but i always felt it glanced my head, it was quite annoying when steering a little harder too.

But that was on the previous model, my new A3 does not have the panaramic sunroof but there is loads of head room now.

So we got a good deal from our local dealer and took the plunge. Matched a broker price which was good. Doing without the panoramic sunroof as pictures of the inside show its not that 'panoramic'. Only just slightly bigger than a regular sunroof.

Added the tech pack on tho as well as B&O sound. Did without Audi Connect which seemed a little pointless for us. Could see business users needing a wifi hotspot i guess but not for us.

Nice spec Jntabbycat.

How long to wait for the A3?
