    I just can't understand what Audi are doing. I placed my order early than you, but your is still been built earlier than mine.

    The only thing i can think of is that your dealer as already got build slot in the system already.

    Count yourself lucky mate. I ordered 18th February. Production date is currently November 22nd. Delivery date is probably an optimistic mid-December depending on shipments from the factory...

    Yep, my BE has it and it's crap. If you can, go for the Audi AMI as this is apparently loads better.

    I know what's going on, and my contact at the dealer confirmed this... when the systems wouldn't accept the new wave of 2011 model orders (after they should have been entered as 2010 and delivered within the 2010 model timeframe) they then re-entered in a random order just to get the orders entered. So all the unfulfilled orders up to that point, and any new ones on the days they were entering them were in one big lump and not prioritised at all. Therefore there are some unlucky ones like us who have been put behind much later orders, and there will probably be some people looking at a normal 3/4 month lead time on their car.

    You're right there! Hopefully there are plenty of people swapping to order BMWs and other competition and the people in question (I'm sure there's a lot involved in total) will get a roasting! Unacceptable for a company like Audi. It'd be bad enough if it was a new small goods company that had got so many things wrong.

    I should be hearing from my contact today about the Mobility Program and when I might get a car. Sounds like it might be sooner rather than later but will update once I know more.

    God that is annoying, dont be too disheartened though Diamond i still see it that we get a free car for a few months and i know personally that will save me 500 per month, i will gladly take that and any compo they want to give me for waiting a couple or three months.

    Oh and if Audi are stumping up a 550k contingency pot then believe me someone has already been shot.

    What dealer are you getting your car through? I am still waiting to find out if I will be given a car until my BE arrives (not due until mid-oct).

    Doesn't look longer to me, but I really like them. They have grown on me a lot. I want to see them on a 3 door A3 now. A red one preferably. Not seen many red ones at all though, let alone with the new alloys on.

    I'm not a fan of the new alloys, prefer the old and wish I had chosen them now!

    i don't think you had a choice did you? i didn't.

    I am still not totally sure though myself also, i bought the car for the old twin spokes but im 50/50 on them still, think they will look pretty good on a lowered car.

    As much as you can carry! the super shine isn't all that really but go for the things like mud flaps, roof rack, boot mats & a track experience in the R8. If you don't ask you don't get!

    Even if you don't want some of the kit you can pop it on ebay.

    Don't think I do, will be getting myself some BBS CH Black Edition's anyway!

    I also purchased the car wanting the old wheels, not entirely happy with the new wing mirrors either which raises another question. . Are there indicators in them?

    You know what, i cant see any change in the mirrors, they do have the LED indicator strip still in them though. The B pillar looks better in gloss black too instead of the satin black.

    Where are you finding this information, can't find it anywhere?! Have you got any images of the B Pillar? Looking in the new brochure it also looks like the new DVD Navigation is finished in gloss black, is this correct?

    There is a MY11 car in the Derby dealership last week and i looked over that, there was an email sent out by Audi HQ that a few customers got also, sure i posted it in this thread somewhere. Not noticed the DVD nav surround to be honest.

    Also all new models now have a sensor to stop you putting in the wrong fuel, closes the fuel tank if you get it wrong. this isn't on the mod list so i would assume that there are the other odd little things they have changed.

    Ahhh right, I didn't come across that then!

    Suppose i'll just have to wait and see for the very first images of the MY11

    Hi guys, i'm new to this forum but thought I might pass on some information. I've just been into my local Audi dealership (Nottingham) and they've confirmed that my black edition has been built and is now in the process of being shipped over here, mine will be part of the first batch of MY11 black editions to land on these shores and should be driving it by the end of the month (or so i've been promised). I also asked about the new alloys and what would happen if I didn't like how they looked on the car, he said they wouldn't have any hesitations swapping them with the older style 7 spokes from a car in the showroom or sourcing them elsewhere, which is some comfort, not sure if other dealers are offering the same though.

    I'll definitely post up some pics, the dealer didn't have the new car in the showroom which seems a bit odd. I'm still a bit undecided on the wheels and want to see them in the flesh before making an opinion. I originally placed the order on 22nd Feb and like lots of other people I was given a 4 month estimate for delivery but now looks like it will be 5 months when I finally pick it up, if I was told a 6 month wait as it is now I would think again

    I thought 6 months was about right to be honest, i had a cooper S when they first came out that took about that long and my Edition 30 GTI took 6 months as well, yours has been 7 months though hasnt it? if i get mine in Sept as quoted its been 5 months.

    It will be around 5 months by the end of the month, its not just a3's that have long lead times as well though, the dealer claimed they just sold a used Q7 for 3 grand over the new price because they can't get any in til the end of the year

    7 months is even more of a joke. And I still don't know if I am being provided with a demo car. Argh, frustrating!

    Am I 'winning' with a potential 10 month wait between order date and delivery?! Not sure winning is the correct term though...

    Think I posted in the "pics of your motor" thread, but since it's a BE, I thought I'd post in here too.

    Finally got the spare mirror housings painted and put on the car. It definitely changes the appearance for the better as the alu mirrors stood out a mile against the blue and darker elements of the car. A bit more moody I think.

    I am not sure if it is down to the orders being re-entered on the system in a random order or if certain dealers are better than others but I chased my car up again at the end of last week and the build date had changed from week 29 to week 28 which I beleive is this week so I am hoping this is correct and I am told should get the car mid. August.
    Mine is with a lease company but I ordered through a local Audi dealer (Huntingdon) and contact them for info. and they have been very good.

I also asked about the new alloys and what would happen if I didn't like how they looked on the car, he said they wouldn't have any hesitations swapping them with the older style 7 spokes from a car in the showroom or sourcing them elsewhere, which is some comfort, not sure if other dealers are offering the same though.



    ust be on the same boat as mine then as mine was built last week and currently being shipped!!!

    Has anyone here ordered or got the "Perforated Leather/Alcantara" seats? I'm curious as to which "way round" the leather and alcantara is (presume leather bolsters and alc centres?) and whether it's the leather or alcantara that's perforated (presume the former). Can anyone clarify?
