    LOL - You have started a countdown thread. Not sure how I missed this.

    Fingers crossed you get a call today saying come on over, the car is ready and waiting.

    If it is a monday collection are you taking the day off? A call in to the office saying you are not well and have Audi-itis?

    ha...well....my feeling is that the car is being delivered to Audi today.....they have told me they COULD turn it round in half a day (though I don't want them to rush anything!)...experience tells me it wont be today....and will be late Monday...so I suspect it will be an early departure from work...skip the how everything works tutorial and hit the tarmac.

    Though I'm still hopeful for the call...dry day today too.

    For me, Audi informed me they took delivery on the monday 20th/tuesday 21st May and it would be ready on the friday (24th). I would agree with you, definitely do not want them to rush the prepping and checking all is in order within a half day. I do not think this is something they would do.

    My only gripe with the collection was that the weather was raining hard and that the car was not kept under cover in a lit environment for me to check over. Not easy checking the body and paintwork when rain is coming down hard. I washed the car on the saturday and was able to look at the paintwork and panels in better lighting/conditions. All in order so I was lucky the overcast day/rain had not masked any issues.

    The collection checklist that Viperfire provided certainly helped me to look for certain things that I would have forgotten to ask. Got me focused. Definitely recommend it.

    lol...no but they'd do!.....I meant the show countdown with Ms Riley! That was my feeble attempt at the clock counting down.

    There was a song back in the 90's....I can't wait another minute.......!

    The cod will indeed get a review.....would be better to have this weekend I guess to put it through it's paces...otherwise...I'll just be driving few miles homes on Monday!

    Moonlight, start warming up the music and practice that uncontrollable grin (that all new owners tell us about). However, I'm sure the grin will come naturally. Good luck tomorrow.

    Lol, I think we just about as excited as you are. They will ring soon enough, you will probably jump out of your skin when the phone does ring. Are you far from the dealership? Are you at work today? You got the camera ready for the first pic of the unveiling? x

    Oh no, im so disappointed for you. Its easy for me to say its just a few more days, but its not me collecting a long awaited car. Im sure you not very happy right now, but least you know its at the dealership and they will be preparing it for you. Chin up. x
