Yeh I'm deffinetly getting my wheels sprayed grey, I wanted it in the first place but didn't know audi did it. How much was it for all 4 to be sprayed?

Well some garages say 1000ish miles and some say it's alright just to boot it as soon as you get it haha!

Dont boot it straight away, in fact give it a good run out and try and find a nice road to gently wear in the tyres, brakes and engine.

Dont forget the whole car is fresh and lots of nice lacquer to get rid of.

Definatly an individual A1 with the Sline package and the competition kit, as well as those alloy wheels.

Those seats are wicked! I'm so jealous! How much were they if you don't mind me asking?

Very nice car - you must be well chuffed, 185 as well! :)

Hey thanks for the comments guys/girls the wheels where £400 do do and the seats are a £1800 extra i think not 100% with out looking. i went to audi today and the guy said that my car has launch control when he tryed doing it he couldnt get it to work and said it myt be because some ecu's are set to wait for a certain millage till you feel all the benifits would like to see it work :) also they forgot to put the paddels on it so they said they have to check and see if it can be done at the dealer :(

I was pleasantly surprised at the sound when I drove it out of the dealers. Just like an s3. Love it.

The super sports seats look the buisiness!, first pictures I have seen of them in an a1. I now know what to expect when my glacier White tdi arrives hopefully in September.

Can't really hear much of the exhaust but the supercharger whine is LOUD! simply amazing.

Hi Nice car,

I wouldn't worry about launch control unless you like replacing your clutch ! :lol: :lol:

The paddles are part of :
1XX 3-spoke leather Sports multi-function steering wheel with gear-shift paddles (S tronic models only) and it will be interesting if they can be retro fitted, please keep everybody informed.

I have paddles on my current car , never use them just change to "S" and away you go.
I have selected them for my A1 185 only so that it will be easier to sell on.

hey just found out that my car can have the paddle's fitted at the dealers there just getting back to me on how much it'll cost. also he told me how to use LAUNCH CONTROL :)

My dealer told me how to do it but it dosn't activate till after you'v done 1000miles says its a safty feature in the ECU but he told me how to do it when youv gone past 1000miles:-

Turn the traction control off
select sport mode
keep foot on the brake
put your foot on the gas till it reaches 4000rpm
left foot off the brake
and have some fun ;)
