Hi all, ordered my S1 in November and it's due to arrive the end of this month fingers crossed!

Iv gone for,
Vegas yellow
3 dr
Quattro interior/exterior
Hill hold
Heated seats
Privacy glass
High gloss black styling pack
Aluminium air vents
Park sensors
And the 18" Matt back alloys

What's people's best and worse point about their S1 so far?

To be totally honest the steering could do with a touch more feel but that's the only negative.
Really love the car and the low down torque makes it so easy to drive.
Wish I'd got keyless entry but that's about it and quite like the standard seats.
Well worth the wait!!

Yeah I wish I went with keyless entry!

I previously had a mk7 golf gti and I loved the car to pieces! So need to wait and see how the s1 compares!

Just wish it was here now!

Some nice options there. That's a long wait since November I ordered early Feb and expecting in a few weeks time hopefully, the wait is painful!

Welcome to the Forum "Claud19"..Good to see another "Yellow", excellent choice indeed. (only because we got one but a 5 doors version):laugh:.
The worst point so far with ours is lack of reverse camera, the parking sensor couldn't detect road side concrete curve..scratch the back wheel slightly when parking yesterday:(

The best part is the looks you get especially in Yellow, it's so in your face lol. I had the keyless entry and start and sometimes when the key is in my pocket the ignition comes on but it doesn't start

Yes I bet I saw one parked up a few weeks ago and my mouth dropped as soon as I saw it!

I have seen you can get an after fit camera so I might invest in that!

Pics will defiantly come as soon as I pick it up!

Sounds like I'm going to enjoy it!

yeah I missed the traction in the wet with the GTI. My other half has a Mk7 Golf R and handles much better in the wet! Be a bit of a competition when I get my s1

You've got the pano roof so the contrast isn't so striking. Looks more like the 5 dr with all black roof.
Yeah don't know why it's called a panoramic sunroof as it's only the front part that's glass. I did expect it to be a total glass roof front to back. Is nice driving round with it open tho, can hear the exhaust more lol

Full width = pano in Audi world. I agree it would be nice if the rear part was a fixed piece of glass. I expect there is some structural reason not too.

Just washed and polished my OtherHalf's for the first time, thank God I have a garage, it is rainning now. "Claud19", your 3 doors looks fantastic, didn't know there are so many combinations of Yellow..

The yellow does look amazing and it is always guaranteed to get you noticed. I think it's funny the amount of attention the car draws even 3 months on. Enjoy.

Yea, the attention thing takes some getting used to. Very often get comments from passers by as I get in/out too. For me the yellow/black outlandish look OR the debadged, no Q pack sleeper look are the ways to go on the S1 :)

Nice looking yellow one Claud! Black pack and the roof suit that well.
