    Sportback build dates?

    Does anyone have a build date on a Sportback yet? Ordered mine on 16/10/12 and still no build date

    I've ordered a 2.0 TDi S-Line Sportback in Daytona, Comfort Pack, Interior Light Pack and the complimentary Sat Nav.

    Sportback build dates?

    Ordered my new SB mid Sept or late Sept can't mind exact date and been told I'm build week 4.

    Not spoken to dealer in a few weeks and not expecting car until early March.

    Guy reckons he will have it on site for late Feb but not sure on SB launch date. I'll be wanting new reg so early March suits me fine.

    must admit I'm getting a little bit impatient as so looking forward to seeing and driving the new car.

    I've been given a build week of 15. This is because I've gone for the 1.6TDI engine and that isn't released until then in the SB.
    Looking at delivery mid May but may be a little earlier?
    i feel all of your pain.

    Is this in the UK? Surprised you could order this when its not yet listed and there is no price for it?

    For the record, I ordered mine in mid November, expected end of March, but no build date yet. I am trying hard to restrict the time I spend looking at photos and videos etc. otherwise the wait is too much

    Yeah, I went in to the showroom October to test drive, placed order in November and part exchanged my current car at the same time. That took care of deposit and half the cost of the car nearly. I got a phone call in December saying Audi were now accepting orders and mine had been placed. He rang a few days later to give the build week. It is in the uk, the salesman said the order went it within 1 hour of them accepting them.
    Still not looking at delivery until mid May.
    you can also build one on the Audi website with the 1.6TDI engine but saying that they have been doing that for a while now.

    This is a little strange as I ordered 1.6tdi sport (sportback) mid Jan and mine is build week 8, for delivery last week March or 1st week April. Dealer called Thurs to say it maybe earlier! They mentioned my spec I wanted was already scheduled except the comfort pack which could be added.

    Queried with my dealer today when I'm likely to see my car (A3 SB) the build week was week 4 when last checked (mid Dec), apparently it moved to week 8 but is now showing week 7 (11Feb) delivery roughly 4 weeks after build.

    Apparently I should have the car mid March but I'm unclear as to the actual Audi showroom release date for the SB.....some online sites say 1 April but dealer thought it early March but couldn't confirm.

    Seems like an eternity since I placed the order.......I'm sure it will be worth the wait

    Ordered sportback a few weeks ago. Dealer advised build week 9 today (last week in Feb), so delivery towards end of March which is a month earlier than predicted. Happy bunny!

    Ordered my new A3 1.6 TDI Sportsback S-Line S-Tronic with just a few options last week. Dealer said that don't expect the car until for several months.

    Options include Tech Pack, Bang and Olufsen, Advance Key, Comfort Pack, ACC, Full Leather, Phone Box, Roof Rails, Lane Assist, Side Assist plus another half a dozen other toys. It would be easier to state what I didn't order which was the sunroof, electric seats and park assist.

    It looks like I will be waiting a long time. I still have not worked out how Audi allocate order slots to dealers, all I understand is that you can order two identical cars from two separate dealers on the same day and delivery can be several weeks apart. Can someone shed some light on this topic?

    If its like VW, then when I ordered my Scirocco, I was told that each dealer is given a certain number of build allocation slots per month (which depends on dealer size, performance etc). Thus they have only so many allocation slots per month where they can order cars. If they receive an order mid month and all their allocation slots for that month are used up, then VW won't accept another order from that dealer until the next set of allocation slots open (which may be the next month).

    Don't know how true this is, but I've heard it from at least half a dozen different people. If Audi's system is the same, that might explain the lead time differences ?

    Sportback build dates?

    Ordered my Sportback S-Line with a lot of options (£32k list) back at the end of November.

    The last I heard, a couple of weeks ago, was delivery in June......I'm not overly happy, and it had better be worth the wait !

    Sportback build dates?

    Hi folks.

    I ordered a sportback 1.4 sport on the second week in January. Have been advised by my dealer that build week is 14 so should be an end of April delivery - which is what I was expecting.

    Wow, £32K for a 2.0TDI........ That's worryingly expensive........ You're options list/cost must be knocking on the door of £8K+ hope you enjoy the car when you get it

    I get that all the time when I tell people my car lists at around £30k. They always act surprised and ask why I didn't get something bigger like an A4.

    Why? I don't want or need anything larger than an A3. I don't have children and rarely have anyone in the back, nor do I ever need to lug huge amounts of stuff around. A larger car would simply be wasted space, cost more and have worse emissions and thus tax. I'd much rather have something smaller but spec the nuts off it so I have all the bits and pieces I want. Whilst I could have a decent A4 for the same money, it wouldn't be as well specced as my A3

    The A3, and other small cars with good specs and available options, address a growing market. People who don't want or need a larger car but want the comfort, refinement, build quality and equipment traditionally found in larger cars. The A3 pretty much started this market back in '96 (I'm ignoring the 3 series compact as that was a joke) and it's been growing ever since. You only have to look at the quality of cars like the A3 & A1 or, with other brands, the BMW 1-series or Mini, to see that people want smaller cars but not "basic" ones. The cost of fuel and increased focus on emissions for tax purposes is only going to drive people further down this route.

    I'm with vertigo on this one. I much prefer smaller cars than larger ones, but really like my toys etc. To be honest, whilst I haven't ordered mine yet (will do in the next couple of months), the price of mine currently comes to just over £32k. That's a sportline 2.0TDI S-Tronic, with all the toys I want.

    So long as you can afford it and it's the car you want, why not. I intend to keep my next car for at least 5 years, so I just know that scrimping now for a grand or so, and deleting some goddies that I really want, will bug me all the time. Better to get what you want now and love the car. Oh, mine will be a private purchase BTW, so no tax bands or monthly lease costs to worry about.

    Boys and their toys eh,lol. Our list was a shade over £30k and that is with the cheaper 1.6TDI engine,lol.
    totally agree bout smaller car though, we have a converted VW T5.1 for size for the family (1 three year old and one due in two weeks) and I have my 185mph Honda Fireblade for my speed addiction so the A3 will be perfect for the gap in between:-)lol.
    you only live once eh:-)

    Sportback build dates?

    Has anyone been advised of the actual UK release date for the new A3 SB?

    Would be really frustrating if my car was built but shipping delayed to coincide with when Audi want to release the car on their showroom floors...

    The launch weekend for the SB is 16th / 17th of March. I've been given a collection date of the 17th and was told Audi would be unlikely to release any cars before the launch event.

    Sportback build dates?

    That's excellent as first real indication of the official release date, as I'm hoping to have my new car on the road for 22 March as heading away for a weeks holiday and would be great to have the new car to go in.
