End of April:redrs4:
The ship Schelde Highway is due in to Grimsby this evening from Emden and the Isar Highway is due in tomorrow.
They often end in highway is all I know...
I was looking to pick up 1st March as my dealer believes it will be ready by then (build week 6).
That maybe a problem after last night as I now have a weekend in London for the Capital Cup Final.
The Schelde Highway has just left Emden due into Grimsby tomorrow. 881 hours to go!!
I'd rather have a new car than go to a Football match anyday!!
To be further off topic, why on earth Brighton did that to Gus Poyet god knows but they must be regretting it now...
Put my order in to our fleet managers on Tuesday of this week. Been told build will start in three weeks and delivery due on 19th March.
Rather surprised as the fleet team told me they had ordered an S3 i December (9th) and delivery on that was expected in May(!).
Still got a few months to run on the existing lease, so I hope they are understanding and accept an early return :sm4:
My S3 is build week 5 - next week. I was hoping for a 1st March pick up - but salesman will only commit to "early March". Not a great issue for me either way but it would be nice.

Being told second week in march
I'm picking mine up on the 5th march. its a showroom car with zero mileage but chose to wait til then. through work committments and plus to get the 14 reg.
as for the discount lets say as a returning customer I did alright.
Is it possible for the dealer to remove the sound system and downgrade it without knowing. i.e. They may remind the audi s.s speakers or B&O and replace with basic ones?
I have seen showroom cars with a trim bits pinched but it really doesnt matter as they would be replaced by the time you pick it up anyway.
I didnt want to wait for a factory order so will be picking up a demonstrator on Wednesday with all the spec I wanted and more. I got just a fraction under 17% discount so am very happy. Its got a 1000 miles on and is as new.
Some will say its been wragged etc but thats what the warranty is for and it will be gone by the time the warranty expires so I am not worried.
Thought I'd be in for this wait - Build week 4 after a cock-up at the dealers (I ordered in June last year!) - but got a call last week. My car's in the country and will be sorting paperwork out a week today for a Friday 7th Feb collection. It's on a three year finance deal so can't be ar*sed to wait as the difference will be neglible :)
Now just need to find a decent detailer to bring the best out of it!
£700 for 3 weeks RRB
Ah the 1st March collection...if only :(
Yeh but I reckon a few weeks ( 32 days ) using other cars available is worth it. Not fussed about having a 14 plate but in our case saving £700 for a short wait is fine.
I ordered 3 door Sport 184PS TDI last Friday and was told by the dealer it goes into production on February 10th and to expect delivery in early to mid March..... Is he being straight with me as others seem to wait much longer??
Normally you'd wait about 4 months but sometimes there may be a cancellation and a space open up you may have gotten lucky!
I did ask to add xenons to it on Friday and he said it was now too late to change the spec and reiterated the 10/02 as the date of production.
