    Delayed delivery??

    Hiya, Im new to this forum but I have to say I am very impressed with the wealth of knowledge.
    I have on order- A3 SB, 2.0 TDI, Daytona Grey, Advanced Key, B&O, All Roof Rails, Comfort Pack, Folding Mirrors, Nappa Leather, Heated front seats, Hill hold, Int light package, Teck package, Tyre pressure, 18" Tittanium Matt boots...........Also with Privacy glass

    I contacted the dealer to de-select the privacy glass as I have seen photos which in my opinion make it look like a drug dealers car.

    I have heard that any changes made to the order will effectively put my car to the back of the que. I have been given a build date of mid Sept. Not sure if this change will have an effect??

    Welcome Colin. Your statement about privacy glass being associated with drug dealing car owners - cracked me up.

    Sometimes amending your order can be hit and miss with affecting build dates. I chose not to alter anything as at the time other forum members had said the alteration had put back their build dates. Having said that, others have amended their order several times with very little impact on the original build date. I even think in some cases it brought the build date forward. I would certainly work on it having a negative impact.

    Personally I'd keep the privacy glass for security & heat reasons, its not just the look, for example, I fitted mine to a car in Italy because obviously the heat is a fair bit less tbh & the kid in the back doesn't suffer near as much, I'd keep it if I was you.

    I ordered the car only 2 weeks ago, in fact I have made some additional amendments today which include adding the phone box, extended mono.pur finish, S-Line sports suspension & adaptive xenon headlights. Ive promised the dealer this would be my final changes, but reading posts from this forum makes me change my mind. I recon I should switch off and acknowlege the fact I wont be sitting in my car for at least 6 mths

    Hi, I'm new as well, just to let you know my experience, ordered 8th of May and initially told build wk 31, a week later added heated seats and interior lighting pack (thanks to reading this forum!) and built wk came forward to wk 29, wonder how late i can make changes, having second thoughts with the SE suspension, maybe the s line would be fine, Hill hold + as well, better make my mind up!
    A Lot of really useful info on here, Thanks guys
