I've been lurking on here a while, as I recently put an order in through the lease company for an Audi A3 Sportback BE 140 tdi (company car) with DSG, Technology Pack, Storage Pack, Open Sky Roof, Comfort Pack, Luggage Pack and Interior Light pack. Oh and it's Monza Silver.
Order was placed 5th November, original delivery date was 23rd May 11, now moved to 16th June 11 :-(
Pretty interesting to see so many peeps on here with issues regarding dates, I am not actually fussed right now, but I will worry if this date starts going backwards any further.
Used to own an S3 a few years back but had to sell when I changed jobs and needed a Diesel as I currently rack up 3k miles a month!!
Hope everyone gets their cars quickly, me included!!
Bad news...HR will not allow an order to be placed in early for my replacement company car so I have to wait until June to order, or complete another 10,000 miles very quickly. Any one need a delivery taking to India:eyebrows:.
If I order in June, I am looking at a December delivery !!!!! I will put money on it that the BE spec will of been removed by then:banghead:
What are the bulbs like in the front spots ? As the headlights are HID do they look yellow ? Is it worth getting some Osram Night Breaker bulbs for them ?
Currently in the process of taking out a personal lease for a Audi A3 170 BE Sportback, Comfort Pack, Metallic Paint and the leasing company cant seem to get under £389 with a deposit of £3600, for a 36 month term agreement, 13,000 miles annually. That includes servicing, maintenance and tax.
Can you anyone tell me if they got lower? and if so, where from (PM if you can?).
One really frustrated BE admirer (been going on since June 2010!)
A fair price!!

Can anyone confirm which colours the Black Edition is available in? I ordered one originally back in December, requesting it in Tugsten Grey. My lease company came back and said it was only available in Brilliant Red, Ibis White, Brilliant Black, Phantom Black and Ice Silver. I went ahead and changed my order to Brilliant Red.
However, I am now in the process of adding one or two extras and thought I would check on the colour sitution with the experts! If possible I think I would go for Volcano Red.
According to the configurator you can have Volcanic Red for 510 pound premium:
The Audi Configurator - Intro
I'm getting Meteor Grey, had deep sea blue on order at first but (thankfully) changed mind.. pretty sure you can have any of the colours that the A3/S3 can have (ie sprint/solar only on S3 and can't have scuba, lava, sphere, volcano, tungsten & dakota on an S3)
For some reason there are more colours on offer than when I bought/ordered mine. I know you can't have the S3 colours though (SOlar Orange, Imola Yellow, Sprint Blue etc.)
Finally made the plunge and ordered my 2.0TDI 170PS Black Edition Sportback with comfort pack - cant stop smiling! I'm not sure when it arrives but i dont care after haggling for so long!
Think ours arrives at dealer today.... not bad as we ordered in July 2010!!!!
I believe things are improving now though.:yes:
Finally collected mine last night....love it :yes: only managed a short run last night but up early this morning as I'm taking a rather long route to work today !!
Saturday for us maybe???
Sounds about right....
We were told ours was produced on 12 Feb awaiting ship. On 28 March in the Uk and due with dealer on 4 March.. Delivery 5th if we are lucky!!
Is this a record - 47 weeks 2 days gone....3 days to go..
Hi All! First off, complete newbie here so apologies if I do something stoopid!! lol..:w00t:
Anyways, just been to the dealership to look at me new 2.0 tfsi quattro black ed. after it first got there.... was f~**ing filthy! Took a couple of pics with the vaguely wafty camera on the iphone so here goes..
Lovely car. Looks stunning in black!! Nice to see a 3door as well seems to be alot of sportbacks floating about.
Nice nice nice..
Got ours this morning. Positive first impressions... shame about Crappy Bridgestone Tyres and the Woman's voice on the Sat Nav will be driving us mad.
Good to be back in a Quattro.
I WANT MINE :(
Nice car! Get some pics up!!
How do we do the Pics???
Wish I went for alcantara!

Just a quick question - if you order the comfort pack, do you get the coming home lights with that?
As far as I'm aware you do with the black edition with comfort pack (which is what I ordered) but I will check with the dealer tomorrow as now you've got me curious!!
