    Adam, understand but you still might want to call to have a rant. There might be a slim chance that they could bump your order up the list?

    Last time I spoke to Audi they said there was no chance I'd get a temp car if my order was delayed so I can't be bothered calling for nothing.

    I bought something else now so regardless I wouldn't be taking the Audi if it arrived tomorrow.

    Wonder if it's at the same dealers, definitely off the same boat as I've just had a call telling me mines arrived, it's going to be delivered on Thurs 22nd... Bit of a wait but could be a lot worse!

    Hmm bit strange that one. They usually like to get the cars out quickly when they arrive due to them not laying about for ages. Ring the stealer and ask why it's so long even though it's arrived?? What optional extras did you ask for? Maybe it's something the prep team have to sort out. (some bits are done post factory build)

    My options are all listed below but am pretty sure they would all be factory built? Not sure if it's my lease company that have to arrange their own transportation to get it delivered to me and that's where the delay is or if there's a delay being sept and the new reg's? Either way it's not that long in comparison to the 6 months I've already waited...

    Sorry didn't see your spec in the sig. Like you say those are all factory fit items.

    Just as a word of caution... I fitted an Bluetooth kit to a mates new A3 (61 plate) which was a company lease car. When I took the bottom part of the dash apart (near obd) they had sneakily fitted a pro fleet tracking system with OBD connection. The guy had no idea about it... Maybe this is becoming a standard thing on company and fleet cars now?

    Two of my work colleagues just ordered new cars through the same scheme as I ordered my S3 from in May. Both will get their cars before mine arrives. Mini Cooper SD - order to delivery time of about 8 weeks. Kia Sportage (don't laugh) - order to delivery time of about 12 weeks. Audi S3 - order to delivery time 28 weeks. Audi have f***ed up their demand modeling, supply chain, or something else fairly major when others can do it in half the time. By the time I give back my loan car it will have an extra 11k miles on it....

    Just to update you all, finally got my BE delivered today, around 6 months since ordering it. Absolutely love it, so solid, smooth, comfortable, not to mention classy! will put up some pics over the weekend!

    One lesson i've learn't so far is don't burn MP3 CDs using iTunes, unless you don't mind cycling through 80-100 songs! Do it with something else which creates actual folders on the CD for the different albums... school boy error!

    Ordered early June through Lookers Leasing.

    I was told initially a 10 month wait (March 2012.) I wasn't that concerned though cos they could something similar for the interim period.

    This was somehow advanced to Oct this year. I'm not complaining though!

    When I asked about it I was told (by Gloucester/Blade Audi) that it's included on the A3 BE. Whether that's correct or not remains to be seen...

    Cool... At least it saves that little bit of fuel whilst you're stopped.

    Hill hold isn't a problem as Im sure you can activate it via vagcom (saw something about hill hold in the coding and the Ross tech site)

    Thumbs down

    ordered 29th july, now pushed back to 13 March 2012, still no build date either, for flips sake, my wife will have had our baby quicker than Audi can get me a car at this rate!!!

    I called in to see my dealer yesterday and it seems that the current A3 is still very much in demand even though there will be a new version some time in 2012. Most factory orders are around 5-6 months.

    Still trying to decide whether to order one now. At least I know I like the existing A3 and mine will be 3 years old in April 2012. Will I like the new version and what models will be available when it is launched.

    getting to the point that i dont want it anymore. Cant believe the poor service, three months and still no build date, all very well trying to expand in other markets, but if you loose orders in the process, you havent grown at all.

    should have ordered a beemer

    Mine is now winging it's way to the UK; hoped to have it for ADI but no chance given the speed of shipping times.

    Ordered early May, arriving late October. In my books that is quite a considerable wait for a mass market car. Its one month behind where I was expecting, and the wait has felt so long I've at times changed my mind and wished I'd bought something else as much changes in the world of cars in 6 months. I wish an S1 had been about to compare with S3.

    @ Dave; tough call, don't know which route I'd take in your shoes. Current A3 should be available with great discounts and run out specs, but new one should have significant interior tech enhancements but may only launch in wiener specs @ full RRP. From early pics I can't make up my mind if I like the new one as much.

    Not sure there will be much in the way of run-out discounts available as, according to my dealer, the current A3 is still selling strongly. I think the new A3 will probably be released at the Geneva Motor Show in early March 2012.

    In the latest update to the ETKA software Audi are not allocating any VIN numbers for the existing A3 beyond 31 December 2011 so it could mean that they start some production of the new version in January so that they have cars available for the launch at least for their home market.

    If they are still only building cars to order and are six months behind at that, i can't believe there will be many run off discounts on offer. This will only be the case on dealer 'stock' cars or cancelled orders.

    You may see a saving on a nearly new they have on the forecourt though. Naturally once the new shape is sitting in the showroom they will want to shift the 'old' cars.

    I managed just over 8% on my S3, but I was a return customer who'd been struggling to find another Audi I wanted (saved them from losing me to BMW 335d coupe or M3).

    Interesting ref EKTA dates. It seems to be a long time coming considering everything else that's been appearing on this platform, but then if it ain't broke....

    I've just spoken to the dealer who said the car did not make it until 3rd October build date, so the delivery date of last week in October looks more realistic for delivery. I've been trying to get alu dash trim and RS3 19" rotor wheels fitted before I collect it and it's proving to be harder than I expected.
