I cleaned mine yesterday, waiting for my week off end of March to give it a full detail and fit my S3 pedals, can't wait
?Bit intrigued with Ibis's post wanting S3 Pedals... if you want them buy and S3 is my view, who sees them anyway.
Good news at last my car is at the docks in Germany awaiting shipment....do you know roughly how long I have to wait until I get it?
My A4 was at the docks last Monday, I will let you know when it arrives at the dealer if you wish?
no problem, the dealer did say 7 to 10 days and is updating me tomorrow, but I have a feeling I won't receive it this week. I will post an update when he contacts me.
Hi LongWaitForaBE - on the back of your car, you have the 'shark fin' - i've seen some cars with and some without. Are you (or anyone) able to tell me if you buy a new standard black edition, whether it comes with it/what is its use? Thanks in advance.
Is this brilliant or phantom? I got the same on its way... but doesn't arrive till June!
Looks great, would love to know the colour too, i have one arriving in a month in brilliant black, i've got the clay and wax already as i've heard what a b*tch the brilliant black is to keep looking good!
Would love to hear people's advice on whether it is worth claying, polishing then waxing it or is the polish not required as it is brand new and SHOULD be blemish free!?
Looking good Longwait, make sure there is plenty of polish on the nose they chip like a bugger.
Update of delivery A4 (for:jbs2742): Now left the port (been there for a week), now supposedly due sometime next week, was due by Wednesday this week. My thoughts are it's getting pushed to April, as it will be a flat month compared to March sales.
Finally received notification that the car will be delivered next Friday, the 25th March!!!!! YAY!!
So at least i know when the baby will arrive as it is sods law it will happen on the same day!
That was ordered at the start of October for reference. The car that is, not the baby.............
I too hadconfirmation yesterday that my BE will be ariving on 25th March - and I ordered mine 6th September! But hey, at least its not too far away now!
^^ Best of luck with the baby BTW.
Shame the delivery driver put 371 miles on it though, still its only leased so not that fussed.
Will stick some pics up when I take some, needs a clean already after its drive down from Carlisle to Essex.
Car has just arrived at Sheerness so shouldn't be long now....
I am down south and apparently all southies cars come into Sheerness.
I have just phoned him and asked delivery as i wanted to pick it up on the 2nd April (Birthday) and he said that it would be more than likely the 26th March.
First post here....been looking for a long time though.
This forum helped me to get information regarding the availability of the A3 BE. Thanks to everyone who contributes regularly.
Pleased to say I have now got my A3 BE - but it wasn't easy. Had one on order for 6 months with our lease company, the delivery date was put back a number of times until 2 weeks ago they decided there was no longer any date at all!!
My boss was not happy to wait indefinitely so he offered to buy a car outright (spec in my sig). The only things missing from my original order were cruise control and USB connection. I was a bit annoying at losing those but it was this car or whatever the lease comany had available immediately.
No choice really.
Anyway, it's a great car. I had a Passat before and an A4 before that so I was worried that this car might be too small (I'm 6ft 5) but it's great and much cheaper on the company car tax than my Passat SE.
Hope you guys all enjoy your BE's when they arrive.
