    Seems odd, just had confirmation for it being built on 3rd of May, delivery on 23rd of May. Ordered my 2.0TDI BE first week of Feb. Hasn't been delayed as of yet even though was told initial delivery would be around mid to late June!

    Just been on our first long run down the M5 in the new BE. Absolutely effortless 200 miles at over 45mpg and average speed of 69mph the car is far nicer to be in than the earlier 2008 version.

    The 170 Tdi engine is so quiet and the car feels really planted and responsive with Quattro 4WD system.

    Well done Audi... I reckon we have a future Classic in the making.

    Looking at ordering a 3 door BE in either Ibis White or Misano Red. Also going with the slide and tilt sunroof. does anyone have a picture of either colour complete with sunroof and the latest BE wheels? really torn between the two colours.

    Cheers, Jamie

    Hi, ordered Black Edition first week of this month (April) with expected deliver date of October. Has anyone seen an improvement on their initial delivery date or does it get worse.

    I still say that my theory about the majority of UK deliveries for new A3 BE's around new plates in March and Sept is correct..

    I'd have to disagree, mines been pushed back again to July makes me wonder if I should cancel the order and go with a Beemer or such like?
    Was an Audi S3, Pre-Facelift 210 bhp, Security Tints, Standard spec, simple sweet and to the point.

    Currently a Golf GT TDi 170 DSG in Pearlescent Black with every conceivable extra available - company car


    From June 2011 - Audi A3 Sportback Black Edition 140 tdi (company car) with DSG gearbox, Technology Pack + AMI, Storage Pack, Open Sky Roof System, Comfort Pack, Luggage Pack and Interior Light pack. Oh and it's Monza Silver. Can't wait

    Hi Everyone, I'm new to the forum and have been reading for a few months now. I have ordered a 3 door BE in black and the delivery date was confirmed this morning for the 6th October. So i will just have to join the waiting game with everyone else on here!

    I'm not to worried as at least it will be a 61 plate. The only thing i might consider retro fitting is the RND-S (sat nav - still trying to learn all the abbreviations so bare with me!!)

    If it does arrive in october will it be a MY12? and whats the difference between that and a MY11?

    Thanks

    Paul

    Just had an update for my delivery (company car) to be mid October (ordered April). If it slips too much then I might need to look at another car.

    I think I'd rather BEAR with you! I doubt there will be a MY12 revision but could be wrong. It may also be worth thinking about the Tech Pack which with discount is really quite good value and you will get back about half the dosh when you sell whereas aftermarket fitments have the opposite effect generally speaking.

    Good luck

    Thanks for pointing out my mistake with the spelling! No edit button - so looks like i'm stuck with it!!

    I'm not bothered about the resale value as its a company car. I had a limit as to how much i could spend a month. This limited what extras i could add to the car.

    It came with 2 clips that clamp from the inside.... it was a struggle but came up with idea of sliding a piece of paper under the grille incase i dropped the clips but thankfully it went pretty much on straight away.. they are very tight and grip both the badge and grille together so its a case of once u get oneside on then it wont come off.....

    You sound just like my best mate lol.. but my previous car (TT) was so much lower my eyes haven't yet adjusted to the gaps above the rims.. Plus my other mate, with his rice burner, keeps saying it's so jacked up it looks like a Q5!!!!!

    Great looking car, but one question....

    Is the Alcantara non-perforated or is it just the angle of the photo the make it look plain?

    I'd be interested to know if it was a change you requested when ordering, as I'm just in the process of ordering a Sportback BE 2.0TDI 170 as a company car and prefer the plain alcantara (i.e. as applicable to the Sport range) to the perforated stuff that is standard on the BE's.

    Thanks
