    Order about to be placed

    Hi all,

    After weeks of deliberating my new company car should be ordered tomorrow. The spec is as follows:-

    A3 Saloon 1.4 tfsi S-tronic
    Scuba blue
    Privacy glass
    Comfort pack
    SD sat nav
    Bang & Olufsen sound system
    Interior light package
    Deselect sports suspension
    Heated front seats

    I really struggled with the colour choice! I decided against daytona grey as my brother-in-law getting an A5 in that shade, against Misano red as my wife thinks I'd get bored of it and against white as it's everywhere now. I would've preferred a pearl but i'm sure that the blue will still pop once it's polished.

    The biggest surprise for me was the difference in price for contract hire between a main dealer and a third party. Despite having the third party quote, the dealer couldn't match it. How can that be? I would've preferred to use the dealer as they arranged the test drive and were really helpful, but obviously my employer was keen to pay as little as possible. The third party even added in the comfort pack (which the dealer did not) and it still worked out cheaper per month!

    Looking forward to hopefully a September delivery!

    That doesn't bode well...

    My current lease expires on 16 September. If Audi cannot build and deliver my order in time, do they have an obligation to lend me something until mine arrives?

    Can you ask your company to pay you your car allowance while you wait for the build?

    My last change-over was exactly the same; I had to wait for my new car and couldn't extend the lease on my existing one, so my company hired a car from a local car hire company. I went from a Golf GT to a beaten-up Toyota with shot wheel bearings! I can't go through that again...
