    F offfff! haha. Mine was build week 12 and was built in week 10/11 and in STILL in Emden. (Been there for over a month) Please somebody tell me how that works!??

    What area do you live in?

  13. #332
    I am in Cambridgeshire and mine was built on 18 March (week 12) and landed at Grimsby on 26 March. If you car is coming through Sheerness or Tyne it may take a bit longer as they have ships less often, but over a month does seem excessive.

    I hate to say this but one reason a car can take longer is that there has been slight damage in the train transit from Ingolstadt to Emden. From an article I was reading a while ago it seems that around 1.5% of all VAG cars arriving at Emden suffer from some sort of damage which is then rectified at a special facility before being loaded onto a ship. I very much hope I'm wrong.

    Have a word with Audi Customer Services and ask them to find out why your particular car has been delayed.

    I called yesterday... The car is at Code 38 (Released) one stage before "on ship" I think you actually posted the codes earlier. So whatever the delay was it looks like it's over now...

    Can anybody elaborate on what Code 38 - Released means? Has a ship bee assigned, is it literally being loaded onto a ship or..?

    Thanks

    That's good. Code 38 just says 'Vehicle in port of exit, released for shipping. The next code is 39 which means it 'On ship' and then 40 which is 'Landed' (in the UK)

    Which UK port will it be coming to as I still keep a eye on which ships leave Emden and when.

    Yeah so hopefully soon!

    I'm South East London, so I'm guessing Sheerness...

    Do you mean you check maritime traffic? Or do you work in Emden or something? haha

    No I just have a spreadsheet with various links to the Marine Traffic website where I note all the departures and arrivals. Sad I know but I'm retired and it gives me sometime to do that I enjoy.

    I think the last ship to Sheerness was African Highway on 31 March so it must be due another one very soon.

    Nice okay, not sad at all! Rather exciting to be honest.

    So any idea when the next ship is of to Sheerness?

    I live in Somerset, must admit happened quicker than expected only ordered it beginning of March. Mine took about a week to be put onto the ship.

    Similar to mine. I ordered my 8V on 10 February but it took over an order that my dealer had placed for a similar A3 on 11 December. Mine was therefore 5 weeks from order to built and just 8 days from the factory to Grimsby. I will be collecting it on Friday. 9 weeks in total whereas my existing 2012 A3 took 20 weeks from order to delivery.

  21. #340
    I had a phone call from my dealer this afternoon with a query about the wiring I want for my TomTom. I spoke to the technician doing the work and asked if would be better to use the in-line socket I had already got in my existing A3. We agreed it would so I called in for them to take the existing one out and of course had a look at my new car in the workshop. All the PDI is complete, my private plates to my specification are fitted as I wanted. It still has to have it's final clean but it was looking good.

    I also had the chance to see what tyres were fitted and they are Dunlop Sport MAXX so hopefully I will not need to change them.

    One thing did surprise me, it has the small shark fin aerial fitted at the back of the roof. I have still to check what this is for.

    Only another full day and two sleeps before I collect it on Friday morning

    Looking at ETKA it shows two 'shark fin' aerials for the A3...

    One for: Roof combination aerial for models WITHOUT navigation system and
    one for: Roof combination aerial for models WITH navigation systems.

    Looking at ElsaWin is again lists two - one for GPS and one for GSM.

    I wondered if it is anything to do with the change to DAB Radio.

    Something else to ask on Friday

    Because my existing TomTom gives me much more than the in-built Sat/Nav. Thinks like the ability to load an up-to-date speed camera database, my own POIs, easy to remove to install updates and plan routes, location at eye level on the right-hand end of the windscreen and easy of entering the data using a touch qwerty keyboard using my right-hand.

    I didn't see the point of paying a minimum of £495 for an option that does a lot less than what I have already. I did try the Audi Sat/Nav on one of the demonstrators I had for the day and much preferred my TomTom. My dealer has hard wired a connection so that of a very short wire is visible from the A-pillar to the TomTom. According the the technician it's something they do quite a lot on new cars!!

    The wheels are the standard sport wheels. I did wonder about changing them for one of the other 17" designs but the build was very quick and by the time I thought about it the build was fixed. At least they will be very easy to keep clean and I'm not that keen on a lot of the wheels that are currently available.
