    A3 Order - First Post

    Hi All

    I'm 28 from North East UK and im a BMS Engineer.

    First post for me but i have enjoyed browsing for a while now (basically since i first ordered )

    My post is not that unique and there has been many of the same but i have decided to get involved

    Like Steven04 mentioned earlier this is also the first time i have been eligible for a Company car - and as with some others this is a dedicated lease company.

    After much browsing through the available cars and initial tough decisions between the A CLass , Alfa Giulietta and Auid - i finally chose the Audi and believe i have made the correct decision.

    Chosen Spec:
    Solid - Amalfi white
    Biathlon cloth/pearl nappa leather - Black
    8 speakers
    Biathlon cloth/pearl nappa leather upholstery
    Electric operated/heated door mirrors
    Hill hold assist
    MMI Radio with CD player and SD/HC card slot
    Privacy glass
    S line sports suspension
    SD card satellite navigation system
    Xenon plus headlights

    Note: A lot of the above are standard with the Spec but i just coppied and pasted from my confirmation email.

    My order was placed 24th August. I was contacted by the Audi dealer to confirm details. I was also given the option to change my suspension option from SLine to Sports to due to delays. I politely declined and decided to wait it out.

    Since the order was placed i receive bi weekly emails showing the progress of the order.

    First email suggested a delivery date of Jan 2013. Since then it was pretty much the same until the beginning of November when it changed.

    2/11/12 - Estimated Delivery 23/11/12 - Dealership Pipeline
    16/11/12 - Estimated Delivery 30/11/12 - In Transit to Dealer

    So this is currently were i am at with the order. Do you think that my newest estimated delivery is accurate with the status now showing "In Transit to Dealer"?

    PS - Daytona Grey is the new white going by orders posted on here? :P

    Well today was "meant" to be my delivery date, received a phone call from dealers on 26th Nov arranging delivery and driver was expected around 9am this morning however...

    2 Days ago (28th) I receive another telephone call saying .. the Lease company has held off delivery and I need to sign some forms, they then go on to tell me that it is the lease company policy not to deliver a car on the last day of the month, and it is also the lease company policy to not do any deliveries in December.

    As you can imagine I was foaming:

    1. Why not send forms out in advance to be signed
    2. No Last day of month delivery??
    3. No deliveries in December???

    Help Needed:
    Got straight onto my company HR to complain - who has since contacted the lease company to say the car needs to be delivered next week.

    Pray with me ppl :P

    Sounds like a strange policy to me. My lease company is Zenith and they delivered today.

    Agree with Suzanne above, sounds a bit kooky!!

    I'd want confirmation firstly that it's def been delivered, where ever that maybe, otherwise it may just be a tactical delay because its not there yet??

    The Lady from Audi explained that she may have arranged delivery without the full concent from Lease company - So the car is definately at the Audi dealers.

    I contacted the lease company myself before my company HR who basically confirmed their policy but without any reasoning behind this.

    Yep its definately a strange 1, but hopefully HR can sort it cause im sure they dont want to pay for this hire car another month while my Audi is sitting in the dealers.
