Hello everyone,
I'm pretty excited to receive my first Audi, not long now I've been told it's in the country and just being registered and delivered etc so maximum a few weeks from now I'll be driving it!
Specification is -
125kw TFSI Q3 MY13Monsoon GreyS-Line pack with 18" wheels & Black Nappa Leather & Black headlining clothTeknik Pack (Xenons, MMI Plus, Park assist etc)
As soon as I get it I'll post some pics.
At the moment I'm looking to do some alterations like tinted windows, upgrade the speakers and maybe try and source the chrome window trim and chrome roof rails.
Anyway, just really excited I guess!

As it's the s line the roof rails should be chrome as standard

Chrome rails and trim are standard on all models in the UK, i guess in Australia you don't get these as standard.
You do get warm sunshine as standard though if you live there
I hope you enjoy your new car when you get it suparockin, great spec you've chosen there

The S-Line pack doesn't mention it in Australia -

I spent a month in Australia a couple of months ago and only saw one Q3 in all that time. It was parked under Sydney Harbour Bridge.

They must be very rare over there! Is it something to do with the tax on luxury cars?

There are plenty of expensive cars (which attract the Luxury Car Tax), it seems many people who look at the Q3 end up getting the Q5 to get the extra legroom in the rear.
Although we get ripped off on cars in general, price you have to pay when your economy is the envy of the developed world I suppose!

If you inspect Monsoon & Daytona under showroom conditions, I think there is little to choose between them. Monsoon is a slightly lighter shade and with standard metallic effect, whereas Daytona, to my eyes (not necessarily a good thing!) is darker and more 'reflective' with its pearl effect. In natural daylight I think the difference is exaggerated somewhat making Daytona appear quite a bit darker. The main reasons for me plumping for Monsoon was I preferred the lighter shade and my last two Audis had both been pearl effect so a change was required. I would guess that Daytona would be the most popular of the two though. But I agree with other members that we should have more choice!

Yeah, I've had three black cars -
VW Golf blackSaab blackVW Tiguan black
I just wanted something a bit different, but it's crazy you just can't find Daytona Grey cars here in Australia. Every car is Brilliant Black, Glacier White or Monsoon Grey - it's crazy such a limited colour choice!
Of course anything is possible if you order from factory, but then the wait is ridiculous and the chance of decent discounts is almost zero.

I'm doing a full photo shoot when I get mine so others don't need to scour the web for detailed pics.
I think half the problem is that they don't sell the Q3 in the US, if you look for other models you find an avalanche of pics (most from the US).
