    Now that my car is still in Emden and chances for early collection are virtually nil this thread is really starting to irritate me ^^

    Funny how my salesman has also told me the same!!! Those pesky little blighters!!! See you there 8AM sharp anyways!!!

    Dealer emailed me yesterday to tell me my cars being built in week 11, does that mean I could have my car by end of April?

    As week 11 is week beginning 10 March I would say it will be at the dealers in early or mid April allowing 4 weeks from Build to dealer. Sometimes it can be less. I even know 2 weeks.

    Normally around 3 weeks, but can be 2 or 4 weeks depending on shipping schedule and delivery from the port to the dealer schedule. Cars normally leave the factory by train to Emden the same or next day they are built.

    Booked in for collection of my new s3 on the 1st. I asked about the £399 fixed service plan and the salesman said not to bother. He was quite dismissive of it and said I was better off on the long life service schedule. Annual mileage will be about 10k a year and this car will be probably be a keeper. Was a little surprised to be honest.

    Is anyone else doing the "there's not another X before I collect my car" game. Ie, not another Saturday night, or is it just me!?

    Do you know how much you will be paying for each service as part of the long life service?

    Also how frequently will each service be?

    I've gone for the £399 plan but may cancel it if I can be convinced otherwise.

    I had the first long-life service on my current 8P Sportback in July 2013 at 18,529 miles and the total cost was £304.99.

    All of my previous A3s have been on long-life service and this has been required between 18k and 19k miles, but it can depend on the type of driving you do. A lot of short journeys and it may come round sooner.

    As I will be trading-in my 8P for the new 8V I have on order and my current mileage is 24k my car will not need another service before it is no longer mine. A lot depends on the number of miles you do because there is a 3 year/30k miles limit on the Service Plan so in my case I would only ever get one full long-life service within the the 30k miles. Based on the current figures I would loose out by £95.

    From quotes I've had from them in the past they seen expensive. I should get some quotes on-line to see who works out the best.

    Haha nope! Quoted three times premium with twice the excess compared to what I will be paying elsewhere. The 7 days free is always handy and they allow two other named drivers for free but I don't think they expect anyone to really use them after that...

    Same experience, I can insure the three cars we have and take out GAP for two of them for the price quoted by Audi Insurance to insure the S3 alone.

    Have used Audi 7 day cover several times and have always been amazed at how uncompetitive they have been.. Too much faff even to bother with 7 day cover.

  36. #355
    The only advantage of the Audi 7 day cover is that it allows the dealer to register the car without requiring to see the new owners Insurance Certificate. This, of course, has to be an Insurance Certificate with the new vehicle's registration number.

    Not a problem in my case as both my existing and the new vehicle will have the same registration number
    Just a quick phone call to the insurance company to tell them the details of the new car. No need for them to send me a new Certificate.

    Your car will go to your local Audi dealer for repairs and genuine parts etc will be used. Had a windscreen repair last year and Autoglass used proper genuine part and even the seals came in original packaging. If you have ever used Autoglass you may know they use cheap versions a lot of the time.

    I was caught out quite badly few years ago with MoreThan where bonnet on my MINI JCW was resprayed after some stray masonry fell on it during high winds. The bonnet stripes were some cheap copy that peeled off after a couple of washes, the chrome grill surround kept coming loose (was a cheap copy) and overall it was just a poor job etc. It was some dodgy place in Bristol owned by MoreThan - took 3 weeks for the repair also.

    Ever since I have just preferred to have an insurance policy where I have a bit more control on where it gets repaired.

    None at all. They just seem to work out expensive although they do say all repairs will be done by an Audi approved work and/or body shop, but you can always insist on this with other insurers.

    If you really want to ensure that all work is done by Audi, there is also a product sold by Audi Insurance called Audi Ensurance. This means Audi Ensurance will pay any extra for using Audi if your own company refuse to pay for Audi to do the work. It may be that the cost of a normal insurance and Audi Ensurance together will work out cheaper than full insurance through Audi Insurance. Have a look at their website
    https://www.insurewithaudi.co.uk/Products/Ensurance/

    It all depends on the quotes you can get for your normal insurance. By all means try Audi, but they do normally seem to work out quite expensive.

    I've got the 7 day free cover , only because it is free and makes things simple for me. Their quote was 2.5x my standard insurer but I like the benefits of Audi own repair etc etc.
