    delivery

    Has anyone had their delivery delayed for any reason? I ordered my s line 140 cod SB in January and my dealer (perth Audi) has just told me I'm build week 28! Bloody July! I was originally quoted to receive my car in may!

    Try another dealer, there can be quite differences between them.

    Yes mine was delayed by four weeks, so instead of getting it just before Christmas I got it at the end of January. The dealership sweetened the blow though by lending me a new £37 Q3 to run about in...

    You may need to find a dealer who has a similar car on order that can be changed to your spec.
    If its a part supply issue they will all get pushed back, i'd ask whats caused the delay.

    My car has just been pushed back 8 weeks; sucks doesn't it. If the deal I got hadn't been so good I'd have looked elsewhere.

    Ordered mine on the 10th Feb and is being built this week.

    However had to wait 9 months for my current 8P but they gave me a car an A3 to use for 4 months, it is in the brochure that if there is a delay they will give you a courtesy car to use so pester them for one.
    Arrived - 8V A3 1.4tfsi COD S-Line Sportback S-Tronic, Daytona Grey, Audi Sound System, Interior Light Pack, Light & Rain Sensor, Alu Roof Rails, Privacy Glass, Non Smokers Pack, Deletion of model & technology.

    I would go to another dealer but I have already paid my deposit. It's not like I ordered anything exclusive/ridiculous! I think I might get in touch with Audi cs tomorrow!

    Part of the Terms and Conditions for the contract when I placed my order read as follows:

    2b. If the Seller shall fail to deliver the goods within 21 days of the estimated date of delivery stated in this contract the Purchaser may by notice in writing to the Seller require delivery of the goods within 7 days of receipt of such notice. If the goods shall not be delivered to the Purchaser with the said 7 days the contract may be cancelled.

    3. If the contact be cancelled under the provision of clause 2 hereof the deposit shall be returned to the Purchaser and the Seller shall be under no further liability.


    Which I think means that the car is more than 21 days late and you give 7 days notice in writing to the dealer, they must give you your deposit back.

    I've just received an e mail from my salesman and he says there is an issue with the supply of COD engines. Has anyone who has ordered the COD engine had any problems regarding delivery?

    I've just phoned Audi cs and they have confirmed I'm build week 28! There was no word about engine supply issues - I guess that is the way Audi work their dealer allocation.

    Correct. Back in 2002 I had a ding dong with a BMW dealer and almost had to get a solicitor involved to get my deposit back. On that occasion the car arrived two months late and was not the spec I ordered - so I refused the car and they tried to claim they could keep my deposit. Got my money back and interest too, then bought a new TT the next day...

    Mind you, my brother has just dropped a deposit to Audi for a new TTS and been quoted June next year for a delivery date! I had to laugh...

    Do they make the 1.4 engines at the same factory as the Saloon?

    About six weeks ago, when I was considering a new A3 to replace my current one, both Perth & Dundee Audi tried a simulated order on their systems to amend the spec of a car already ordered but not confirmed - These were cars scheduled for around BW11/12/13 from memory, and when they tried to change the engine to the 1.4 COD the orders moved back to at least BW22 due to unavailability of that engine.

    Presumably six weeks on, BW22 would be around the BW28 you're now being quoted?

    I too had this. Quoted week 11 at time of putting deposit down (3rd January) where the sales guy planned to amend an existing order. Get phone call the following Monday to be told that when he amended the order it moved to week 20!

    To be fair my sales guy keeps me updated and it's moved in the space of 6 weeks from week 20 to 18 and now 16. Might get it early May.

    I think I have read on the A1 forum some people have had their COD order delayed....

    Almost all the engines used in the smaller Audi's, and all the other VAG models with transverse engines are all made in the Audi plant in Gyor in Hungrary. This is the same site that makes the A3 Saloon and Cabriolet, but actually in the same factory. In 2011 for example the Audi engine plant made 1,883,757 engines.

    Just had the following response from my dealer regarding delays on the 1.4 COD
    well, I must admit some peoples cars are going back as far as that due to the amount of orders taken, Audi only release a certain amount of cars/ Models per dealer per month.

    So to answer your question, I believe you order the car at the right time, but I must say we do have a good understanding of the order control we get through Maidstone Audi.

    As far as I am aware with any delays is if you order a car with Exclusive Interior /Exterior as this can add up too another 3-4 months on the build as it is specially made.

    Thanks Dave, as I thought really. So begs the quest, do the saloons get first dibs on the engine?

    I doubt it. I would think each branch of VAG has to request the number of engines it is likely to require with a given period and then production is allocated on a similar basis to the orders for cars. It could be that the 1.4COD engine has been more popular their Audi thought it would be and they have used up most of their allocation. With the delivery dates being given it may be that they will not be getting any more until the 2015 Model Year starting in June 2014.

    Alternatively the problem may be that Audi UK only requested a given number of cars fitted with the 1.4COD and it has used up it's allocation for this Model Year.

    Can anyone advise when I should be expecting to take delivery.

    I would estimate a maximum of 3 weeks before it gets to the dealer, probably less.

    That certainly seemed to be the suggestion from Dundee Audi - no more COD's available until MY15
