Hi all

Picked up my brand new Audi A1 136kw (185hp). Down here the 185hp version is called the 'Audi A1 Sport' - different to the 'Sport' trim level that you guys have in the UK. Basically the top of the range model you can get here, it comes standard with S-Line Bodykit (exterior only), 136kw engine and extra frills like LED lights and lighting package

But mine also has the optional S-Line interior which essentially makes it a full S-line :D :D

Absolutely love the colour combo - amalfi white, daytona grey roof arches and grey rotor 18's - and LOVE the engine - brings a smile to my face everytime I press that accelerator and here that GROWL

One niggling thing though - there seems to be a buzzing sound (buzz but not a rattle) near my driver's seat - either at the back of the seat itself or in the rear bench somewhere - trying to work out where its coming from and whether its a symptom of being brand new (so parts need to settle in - its only had 10kms when i picked it up!)....hopfeully its not permanent :(

I hope you also enjoy the view in the background :)

Very nice, white - Amalfi/Glacier with the daytona contrast really makes it stand out.
Looks even better in the metal.

Real nice car mate!! and here I was thinking I was the only Aussie on here with an A1. I got my Ambition when it was first released out here at the start of the year. I was trying to get an S-line when they first came out but they were not available. Time to trade up I think ;p

Well done. The buzzing/rattle noise on my 185 turned out to be the handbrake handle. Try holding it when you hear it and see if it stops.

Looks awesome m8.

I'll second the handbrake as being cause of rattle. Try squeezing the console towards the rear of the lever together while you are driving, see if that stops it. Had to let the dealer have it back to sort it, but at least I knew the cause.

Ive just noticed the little white triangle near your mirror! Did they forget to pull the wrap off? Or is it a new feature? My Glacier pics of it in the dealers yard has these too! Its still wrapped though

ok - removed the silly white sticker - it was like walking around in a brand new shirt with the tag hanging off the back :/

but - the slight buzz is still coming from my drivers seat. tried playing around with the hand brake and centre console to no avail. its not overly noticeable but I'll have to see if it settles in after more km's...

I think I had 1 of the first in Sydney. Ambition though (may trade in for a Sport). Order in Oct 2010 and got mine in Feb 15th :)

Wow! Look how big those "small car only" spaces are! Could fit a truck in them
