    Ditto - I asked Blackburn, Bolton etc for discount, some came back as zero, others would have given 3% so grabbed 9 at Kings Lynn and accept that it's a few trips to Norfolk as I'm part-exing my Q5. I'm in Glossop and work in Bury, haven't seen a single S3 on the roads round here yet either.

    Lucky man!! I'm in shock, just heard from the dealer, expected build week is 19 - holy sh1t, I nearly fell of my chair. no idea why it's so long given that the order was placed late Nov, not very happy tbh.

    Seems about right - I ordered last week of September and was quoted build week 9 for end of March delivery - 6 months

    Yours end of November - Build week 19 starting 5th May - end of May delivery - 6 months

    Should come in a bit mine has ended up as build week 5 confirmed so should be 1st March collection hopefully

    OK, thanks for that, sounded like a long wait but if 6 months is the average lead time then not too bad. March 1st will be round pretty quickly for you!!

    Hopefully - mind you January can be a long old month sometimes

    It is a long wait to be honest - Does seem to depend on what dealer though some people are quoting ordered end of december build week 6 - 3 doors are coming through quicker as well apparently

    Will be worth the wait, although I test drove it so long ago now I've forgotton what is what like which I suppose will make it more exciting

    Yes, I saw that some have ordered in Dec for March del which is why I was surprised at May, but they seem to be the exception, albeit the lucky exception!! Jan is a bit of a crap month I agree, we'll have to content ourselves with other peoples images on here I guess, plenty of motors should start rolling in soon so I'm looking forward to seeing all the updates. I was warned that it could be min 6 months so knew what to expect. Agreed - I might just have to grab another test drive somewhere because mine was only for 30 mins so no time at all to get a feel for it, loved every minute of it though!

    Mine was about 45 minutes I reckon, but that did involve going home to make sure it went in the garage and also the wife having a go

    Haven't seen any around Essex yet only the demo which I drove and that looks like it might have been sold now as well

    Whenever I go for a test drive I always ask to 'borrow' the car for at least 2-3 hours and sometimes all day. I have never been refused yet. The dealer needs both parts of my driving licence and then includes me on there insurance as though it was a loan car. The normal excess on their insurance is £1000 bur for £10 this can be reduced to £250 and in every case the dealer has paid the £10. I don't know whether it helps because I'm already driving an A3.

    When I was chatting to my dealer the other day I told him that my wife had bought me a fridge magnet which read " Keep calm and Dream of an Audi R8". He said "I can arrange for you to drive one if you want to". So when the better weather comes.....

    We couldn't do that as the vehicle hadn't been registered so we were on trade plate otherwise we would have had it for longer

    you'll enjoy the R8 I drove the old V8 version a couple of years back - fantastic

    Have driven 4 different R8s one for half a day. The manual version is far more fun IMHO .

    Not bad but with all the power I found flappy paddle driving detracted from the fun... Took the route into wales M48/49 mentioned in other post.

    Same has happened to me. Dealer quoted me week 8 or 11 and now been informed (after getting my deposit) week 18. He is very confident this will be brought forward 2-4 weeks once it's properly confirmed.

    Weirdly the signed order form says expected delivery mid April.

    Grrrr, dealer just called to say build week 19!!! From estimate of week 12 this is a blow, although he said it's come forward two weeks just this week, so here's hoping it comes forward more. Bit pissed off really but what can you do

    Well I've just heard from my dealer (derby) that my car is now in the country and making it's way to them! Heck that's quicker than I expected. I ordered first weekend in October and got build week 1 (w/c 30th dec).

    Just need to confirm with them that they'll be leaving all the protection film on just before it's Pdi'd ready for me to collect and that it won't be stuck in the showroom for grubby mitts all over it either.

    Incidentally, the r8 is my wife's dream car (nothing to do with 50 shades obviously), I've got her an extended test drive booked on her birthday next Tuesday!
    J6YAK and Kempysue like this.
    Build Week 1: Panther Black S3 SB S-Tronic, black nappa, anthracite alloys, comfort pack with adaptive cruise and parking plus, active lane assist, adaptive xenons with variable range control and auto high beam, technology package HIGH with connect, B&O, tyre pressure warning, fold/dim/dip/heat mirrors, reversible boot liner, extended mono pur interior, privacy glass, hill hold assist, LED interior light pack, electric lumber support.

    "Cannot" is a bit strong, you can but it will be expensive.

    Monsoon then?

    Daytona Grey is an 'S-Line' only colour. Looking at a colour chart Monsoon Grey, metallic looks to be the nearest colour.

    True, you're right, strictly speaking I could order it but I don't fancy paying £2k for a paint colour. Have had a look at monsoon and the colour/shine of it seems to vary so much depending on the picture.

    I think you're right. A chap at work has a monsoon a5 tfsi and to be honest I've never really liked it, possibly as it parks next to a Daytona s-line 8v a3. How about silver?

    The dealer said there was barely any difference between the 2 colours and most people cannot tell the difference, but I'm still not sure. I've had silver cars for the past 13 years so was thinking of a change. I do like the phantom black, I'm just not sure I would ever be satisfied with the cleaning. I had previously considered estoril blue but again, the colour of that seems to vary som much from picture to picture.

    That's one of the featured I think is special about estoril. You get such a varied look.

    I saw panther black in the showroom on an a4 I think it was but personally didn't like the purple pinky glitter look of it. Might be different in the sunlight tho.
