    Newbie - Got A Fast Build Date!

    Hi Everyone,

    I’ve been on this site for a week or so, but thought I’d better say hello.

    I ordered my new car (details below) on April 14th(week 15?) and thought I’d be in for the usual long wait. However, I called local Audi Dealer yesterday afternoon hoping to add the Hill Hold Assist option to my order, as I thought there would be no problem since I’d only ordered my car three weeks ago.

    He checked my order and told me my build week should be about week 25, but adding to my order shouldn’t be a problem. This was a lot sooner than I expected after reading the posts on here – I wasn’t expecting it for months. The dealer said he would call me back once he had done whatever he needed to do to amend the order.

    When he called me back he told me the build week was now looking like week 22, but the addition to the order may put it back a week or two. That’s ‘order’ to ‘build’ in seven to nine weeks!

    There seems to be a lot of inconsistency with who gets what and when. My car does seem pretty simple compared to some of the beautiful examples we see on here, maybe that’s why mine is so relatively quick?

    Cheers, Paul.

    Squiretolley – your order to delivery was quicker than mine (if it arrives on time) – thought I’d be waiting months and months at this stage of the order book!

    SuffolkAudiMan – The dealer I’m using does seem to be a switched-on bloke. Not flash or full of bull**** promises of fast deliveries etc, which is one of the reasons I chose his dealership over another local one.

    Markjames – dunno if you’re asking me or other posters above, but mine is manual.

    Cheers, Paul.

    Unreal - you have been so lucky with build date. Seems there are a lot of people on here that are going to push 5-6 months !

    And I am having a similar problem with the Mrs.... they will just have to put up with it

    Aren't we all so sad, spending all this time on cars. If she asks what you're doing, just tell her you're looking at cross-dressing websites or porn... just to avoid embarrassment.

    Yesterday I was told my car was almost in the UK, then later in the afternoon I had another email with list of reg numbers to choose from! Emailed my choice back to dealer at about 3.30ish.

    This morning I get all the new registration paperwork in the post for me to check, sign and return.

    Dunno if dealership is just super efficient, or they want rid of me quick - I've not pestered them once and I don't think I smell!

    cheers, Paul.

    brilliant news Paul, dealer tried to input my personal reg no onto the order this morning but it would not except it, he basically said its in limbo land at the moment. Probably not cleared customs etc.

    I noticed above that some people have listed in their car builds comfort pack and light and rain sensor pack. Am I missing something?
    I thought the comfort pack including amongst other things the light and rain sensor pack. Have I made a mistake, and not getting what I thought I was? Someone please clarify. Thanks
