    I was in Aberdeen Audi today sorting a few things out and found out my order is now confirmed as build week 6, compared to the original build week 10. Should now get the car in March instead of April.

    Whilst not relevant to the S, when chatting to the salesman he told me Daytona Grey is being discontinued. I didn't question this further and if it's across the board, but it will be the end of a great colour.

    I was waiting for someone to pick up on that!

    I'm build week 6 and I only just found out that that's the week the car is built and leaves the factory, so on February 3rd the car will be heading to the port (allegedly).

    Cool. I was build week 1 (was w/c 30th Dec) and my car arrived at the dealer on the 10th Jan. I think a lot depends on which ferry crossing your car is on as the northern port (can't remember which one) seems to be getting almost daily crossings at the moment. southern ones seem to be getting less for some reason.

    Mine will sail to Port of Tyne, not sure how often they dock but I imagine it's quite regular.

    Ditto build next week and Grimsby.

    Ordered in June ..... Anyone waited longer? !!!!

    Dealer says high demand and their current orders are being quoted 7 months delivery by the way.
    I advise anyone placing order to check carefully dealer allocation / realistic delivery, does vary by dealer.

    Not longer but June order here as well. Car is built and was released for shipping on Thursday. I hope it wont be much more than two more weeks before delivery.....

    My order was delayed by an admin error at my dealer and i am currently driving their A8 demonstrator. Nice, but not an S3. I had one of Audi UK's demo S3's over Christmas and New Year and didnt want to give it back!

    Not long now....

    I must have been incredibly lucky.

    Ordered and deposit paid 17th November and due to arrive at the dealer on the 23rd January.

    Guess they had a free slot.

    Heading to the US for 2 1/2 weeks on the 3rd Feb which will make the wait to the 1st March slightly easier...

    Ah you stuck it out too Rich, recall your early posts. There was an issue with orders before the official sportback launch in September I believe. Still absolutely crazy to me how the delivery times between dealers varies so much. I will know next time but yeah not long now even if I can wait till March.
    Delivered 1 March 2014, Estoril blue S3 Sportback STronic. B&O, Comfort, Aluminium rails, Interior Lights, Through load, lumbar, SD Sat Nav,TPM, Rev Mat.

    Fell in to this trap. Quoted week 8 when they said they would amend an existing order. They did that and it jumped to week 18! Not had it confirmed yet but I might be lucky and it will come forward a few weeks. Another dealer was quoting week 11 and thinking maybe should have gone with them but who is to say the same thing wouldn't have happened.

    This happen to any one else?

    I was told that they can sacrifice a car on the list but there's no guarantee that your car will take the spot. It still may come forward but don't know why there's such a big difference. I get that the factory has to plan their manufacturing lines probably depends on many factors like parts availability, model production runs etc.

    Are you in the Alps??????
    Did not know that, thought you'd have mentioned it.

    Shed loads in Aberdeen, was into Aberdeen Audi (picking up the private plates they made up FOC for me) and the salesman said they've taken a substantial number of S3 orders already this year, so the Aberdeen number will get worse.

    Threw in a free boot liner too.
    Good bunch at Aberdeen.

    Also noticed your sneaky pic of footrest. Surely it can't be that complicated to make one for RHD cars!! Come on audi!!!!


    Nice pics too. Can't have enough!

    Maybe Ferrari and Lamborghini should have them as standard. Maybe a few. Or your own personal fire truck.

    Good bunch at Aberdeen.
    How did you manage to get the liner? I'll collect mine in a few weeks and always good to get some freebies if they're going!

    2013 Audi S3

    When my dad picked his a8 up they said is there anything out of the accessories I think but he didn't get anything.

    It was stoke audi and I think I should have a look through the accessories and give them a ring saying "oh I've made up my mind now haha"
    Doubt I'll get anything tho.

    I'll ask when I pick mine up tho but I'll find out off Zig81 as he's getting his first.
