Japanese Earthquake delays RS3
My dealer called me last Friday to inform me that my RS3 ordered in January will not be built until week 50 (mid December). The reason for this is that a Japanese factory that produced a certain chemical used in some Audi colours was destroyed in the earthquake. The colour I had ordered was Daytona Grey. I was told that Black does not use this chemical but when my dealer changed the car colour on the computer the build week did not change. This sounds as though they are building them all in one big batch and the critical path is this chemical. Now the interesting thing is why doesn't Audi have a short term backup plan or does it want to piss off 2500 customers in one hit?
