    Finally have bitten the bullet and ordered the C8 Avant. My poor '06 A4 has given worthy service. Have a delivery date for December. Bit worried about the diesel, but couldn't really get my head around a reasonable electric alternative. Would have liked the adaptive cruise but couldn't justify the tour pack...

    Is there anything worth doing frome VCDS perspective on these?

    First off, congratulations on first published order! Second, unless you live in or travel through major cities I really wouldn't worry about the diesel, just be prepared to do a few motorway miles to keep the DPF clean. On the VCDS mods none has tried yet as the models too new although I suggest many of the C7 mods may still work. Keep us all updated and when you get it, pics,pics,pics! Lastly, colour?, Spec?

    Hi Whippy53
    Thanks for the congrats - surely a few others must have ordered?! I've gone for the 40 s-line (will only get in trouble with a faster car), standard wheels, mythos black, folding mirrors, b&o sound, tech pack, heated steering wheel, light pack, storage pack, larger tank - and then I couldn't justify anymore....

    December delivery date - will go to a detailer first for the works including ceramic coating.

    uming and aaahing about gap insurance - advice seems conflicting whether this is a good or bad thing, any thoughts?

    Well, I would always go for it although not through the dealer. Too expensive and far better deals elsewhere. Shop around is as always the best advice. Sounds like a nice spec. Enjoy.

    I've also taken the plunge. I've taken a car my dealer had in stock, a 40tdi S Line in Daytona with Tech Pack. That's what I would have specified anyway so it works well. I get the car this weekend. I've been exiled to BMW for the last 3 years since my C7 was written off by floods - having been through that experience GAP insurance is a must. I'm shopping around but so far ALA seems a decent option that is well regarded.

    Thanks Rickerby - how exciting
    - would love to hear your thoughts on the new whip.

    ALA seemed expensive - insurethegap seem the cheapest (though cheapest doesnít mean best) Are you going for return to invoice?
