    A3 delivery times

    I ordered an A3 Sportback 2.0TDI Sport on the 22nd of April and was told it would be available in August. I asked to get it on the 1st of September to get the new plate. I have recently been told that it will be built in week 34 which starts tomorrow. How long will it take to be built and shipped over to the UK?

    When I got my A3 it took about 4weeks from my build week to delivery... You can always ask the dealer to hold it back and register and pdi the car after the 1st.

    ordered mine around the same time and just heard today that the build week has been pushed back from 35 to 40.

    reason given was issues in sourcing all the parts for the 2.0 TDI. I've to phone back (great customer service) in a couple of weeks to see if things have changed. It was week 35 just before the factory shut down.

    They say it's free but when you look at the breakdown of the delivery cost it's included in there.

    Given all the delays A3 orders have been suffering I decided to call my dealer today and my S3 has been moved forward from week 40 to 39 for build week.

    Supposedly dealers have allocations of cars to sell, and if they oversell one model without selling any of another they restrict the availability of the high selling vehicles to that dealer. Why they would want to do this I don't know, but it seems a possibility as there is inconsistency in supply between dealers.

    Seems the new pertinent question beyond 'how much discount' is now 'and how fast can I get it?'!!

    hi guys i'm new on here but i ordered my A3 black Edition at the end of June 11 as it is a co car i expected a wait but hadn't heard anything by the beginning of Aug so chased it up, i was given a build date of 20th December yes i did say December expected delivery Feb 12

    so i contacted Audi via their contact us and kicked right off nicely including the fact they are removeing the spare wheel from new models (to me a safety issue) but to go part way they did arrange 12 bottles of wine a mix of Red and White

    Still not really happy i have read that they have a new lady at the top Alison Jones joins Audi UK to take on top Operations role she has worked her way up from the bottom and is customer focused, ......... really well i'm not holding my breath a week now and she can't be bothered to contact me.

    “I have worked at Volkswagen Group for many years and so have always been involved with Audi. It’s great to now be a direct member of the brand, particularly at such an exciting time. We have a multitude of great products coming through, a challenging market place and an absolute focus on our customers and the service we provide. Audi has gone from strength to strength in recent years, and I look forward to building on that success” commented Alison.

    Well I think I’m going to cancel the order why wait 6 – 8 months ?
    just to add though Lister Audi of coventry are the most helpful dealer i have had dealings with big
    and i'm in Bristol (how does that work?)

    I ordered a 3 dr black edition 170 in ibis White with tech pack, comfort pack and lumbar support beg of June and have been quoted late
    December for delivery but after reading this I'm worried it's going to be delayed so I'm now reconsidering my choice. It's a company car so
    I need to find out whether I am able to cancel before I can order something else!

    Seems to be affecting the Black Edition orders more than anything.

    Just thought I'd give an update as I've just been speaking to my fleet dept. The latest update from Audi states build week 46 with
    delivery mid dec, he said this is applicable to the 3 door, the 5 door is not due for build til mid dec. Apparently they've been told that the situation is improving as they go along. I won't hold my breath!
