    How Much Longer!!

    Hi,

    I thought I would join this site as I am very soon going to be the proud owner of an A3 (Cannot Wait)

    Seems like these past 3 months have been 10 years. Can't wait to get my A3. The last update I had was on Friday stating that my A3 was waiting to be shipped. Anybody know how much longer I will have to wait??

    Yeah I will just do that. Not too much of a problem, just desperate to get my car. Will feel strange not having it to look forward to once I have it though. Never happy

Working in logistics, I can tell you that there is a vessel due into Tyne today which originated Emden..,,,the Geman port from where the Audis are shipped. The vessel is a roll on roll off and is packed to the gunnels wih Audis....I'm told mine is on it as was ready to ship 2 weeks ago.....yours may well be in it too !!!

    Happy birthday in advance! Cemerson, we can collect our scuba blue cars at the same time, I have noticed that your build week somehow keeps creeping forwards......do you secretly cancel other people's order to nick their slot?....haha...only joking.

    Heh, no - my dealer claims he is ringing Audi to get it pushed forwards, but I don't believe him - I guess people are just cancelling and it just happens to keep coming forwards. 1 more week forward and it could hit that all important Spet 1st date!

    My dealer is only 3.4 miles from the dock, so I should get it super quick.

    I'm based in Liverpool so I'm guessing it was on an earlier vessel to yours FirstEverAudi.

    I went for the 1.6 TDI, sport trim, brilliant black with Comfort pack, Folding Mirrors and the interior lighting. I ordered mine in April so will I also get the DAB radio?

    Will post some pics when I pick it up

    DAB was applied standard to MY14 cars which was effective week 20 something? I recall RossR having an actual week number in a previous post

    Hi Richo, if you have been waiting 3 months count yourself very lucky! A lot of people around here breaking the 6 month barrier, I will be getting mine in month 7 of waiting. Too long! Worth it though, I am sure.
