    MarkJames's Countdown begins - 30 days

    Hi all,

    have been looking forward to starting my countdown - call from dealer to confirm that I can collect my A3 on the 28th-30th July give or take a few day, so 30 days left! In usual fashion I am waiting for Sandra's encouragement to get me through this next month (p.s. for any song suggestions I am a diehard hiphop fan!)

    3dr S-Line 1.6 TDI S-stronic, Glacier white with privacy glass, comfort package and Audi sound system.

    Hi Mark, think we will start you off with a little trance music. This is one of my favourites. Enjoy. x

    Hi Mark,

    here's what I ordered:

    3dr S-Line 1.6 TDI S-stronic, Glacier white with privacy glass, comfort package and Audi sound system.

    they told me there was a big delay on automatics at the moment, ordered 1st feb, can't wait now! Not seen many glacier 3drs with privacy glass, I think people think its a bit drug dealerish but I love it :D

    Can but hope Ruthus! Terrified of people damaging it... fortunately as I have a blue badge, I get the big parking bays to keep other people's mits from denting my doors...

    Has anyone had any experience here of requesting a discount because of such a long wait? As my delivery date was 15th May, I was debating asking for either the soundsystem upgrade free, or atleast a full tank of fuel. unfortunately I am a push over and terrible at negotiations... do you think I am in the right to do so?

    Yesterday, my dealer told me I could collect it next Wednesday AM, and that it was enroute to the dealership on Friday. So very excited, I had put it to the back of my mind until next week.

    However, a friend who works there just messaged me a photo of a newly delivered 1.6TDI auto A3.... think this one is mine! Kind of wish I hadn't seen it, as now the next 5 days are going to feel like a year...

    So, my car has been at Audi for nearly 2 weeks now, being fitted with my hand controls (adaptions). However, the supplier hasn't made hand controls for the new A3 yet, so they are having to source elsewhere! The car is beautiful... frustrated I can't drive it yet lol! Will try post a good photo of it tomorrow.

    Thank you, I can't wait. The company fitting the controls called me today and in their words "I bet you are itching to get your hands on it, this car is absolutely beautiful". - Audi have excelled themselves with this S-Line design.

    I had this issue with my iPad.
    After logging in, at top of the page, there is a "settings" tab. Then after pressing this, on the LHS, there is a field to edit your signature. Hope this helps.

    Sandra, yes time is flying, still hoping for 1st sept delivery, just praying there are no delays at the port or the dealers, and of course build date slippage!
    "sporty mark" I like that, much easier to say.......as long as you really do mean me, after all, we have been here before! Lol.
