My wifes 185 is finally here!
Firstly a big thankyou to Peterborough Audi for pulling out all the stops to get the car sorted in only 8 days from its arrival with them.
The car was only finished late on thursday so only spent friday and early saturday in their handover area where it generated huge interest from both staff and custermers alike.
I have to say the positive comments have been comming thick and fast,much to my wifes delight !.
We were treated like royalty by Tom and the staff at Peterborough (its our 9th Audi and 5th from p'boro).
First impressions are that the car is quite nippy but untill she'e got a few more miles on we wont know just how nippy! :lol:
The wheels set the car off really well although they do highlight the tiny rear discs!
IT drives really well and feels like a much larger car,seems really solid and planted on the road,the ride seems much better in sport and not too harsh at all.
I have included a picture of the ebay boot liner as well .
Pictures are in my gallery.
Enjoy.

Can we have a close up pic of the front grille badge? I wonder if they are only fitted to the 185 S-Lines?

Great looking A1 there Butch ;)

Can you tell us what happened with the mis-build, did the car turn up with a totally wrong spec or something?

Butch - You need to calm down and leave some options for other future A1 owners. :lol: Your A1 looks very nice indeed. Let us know what she feels like when you eventually open the throttle up. ;)

Hey Butch
How do you find the ride with S-Line suspension and 18" wheels?

I took an A1 S-Line on a test drive with 18"s and found it too harsh for me, even firmer than my BMW M-Sport and a Mini Cooper S. My dealer mentioned you could choose the Sport suspension as an alternative, is that what you meant in your first post?

Cheers

No the car came with standard s-line half leather,we sent the car to a trimmers to have the tan leather fitted and before anyone asks it cost £725, a hooooge saving over Exclusive!

The ride is firm but not uncomfortably so .No worse really than the A3 s-line on 18's that it replaces.

Hello, I am a 185 owner and it did not come with the S-Line badge on the front grill?? also it says in your sig Dual Zone Climate control?? This is another thing I did not think was available for the A1... Would you mind clarifying please?

Thanks.

The Climate is not dual zone even though Audi listed it as such!
the badge is not s-line but just an S.
