That is unbelievable!
Someone need the sack at Audi.
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.
Oh and just too cheer you up look what i found finally!!!
Is it me or do they make the car look longer?
Hi guys I have had a confirmed build date and I'm told car will be delivered September on a 60 plate. Dealer is putting me in a car until then and also said the will compensate me with accessories what you think I should be asking for autoglym etc?
I'm not a fan of the new alloys, prefer the old and wish I had chosen them now!
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.
This is part of the email.
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.
Lucky you, I've got to wait until December! Be sure to post images, we all want to see what we have ordered. Thats good re-assuring news, might ask for much of the same!
Thanks for sharing!
Not a bad deal, that wont last for everyone though i bet as stocks are limited. nice to have the choice though.
Please give us a shout of post pictures though once you get it please. i work in Nott's.
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
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
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.
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?
