    I can't get free tickets for the BBQ as they are £30k a pair but you do get a free Audi A3 ;)

    I am hoping and praying the dealer gets the a sept 1st collection! Not had any contact from him yet to say its on its way, but he is telling me the 1st still.
    If so I'm equally excited about the collection party :D

    Are you net getting yours on the 1st Cemerson?

    No, currently the 9th, but hoping it'll have gotten built a week early, or be really quick to ship over or something, and I might be able to get it earlier. Probably won't happen though.

    I'm sure Germany know how important it is for the UK to have them ready for collection on the 1st so I would remain hopeful!

    At least if it doesn't arrive until the 9th you're countdown thread will be in the limelight so you will be Centre of attention ;)

    Ok so I was in the area, and I "accidentally" drove down the dead end road that passes by the back of my dealer, what did I see?
    A beautiful shiny Daytona Grey 3 door S-Line, it's unregistered awaiting prep. Could it be? Is it? Woop Woop :D, oh it has a Quattro badge on the front :( Dammit!

    haha.....I got caught out like that last week, when I "accidently" passed by the dealers. I have now found out my car is in a lockup 10 miles away, so no sneaky look for me until 1st sept

    Ha ha I'm so glad I'm not the only person to have done it ;). Have now been informed the dealer are taking delivery on the 18th. I will be in Dorset I will be getting back on the 22nd and going in to finalise paperwork. Dealer said while I'm there I can take a look at the 63 plates they have and chose one at the same time :D

    21 days and 30 mins remaining ;)

    Ahhhhhhhhh, these holiday boys (daveotto and catalunya) have the right idea of taking a break before the race to get their new cars!
    Both enjoy, I'm sure you will be chilled with a beer, sun and pool. Hope it doesn't take your mind of Audi speak, this forum wouldn't the same without you! as we are going through this journey together. Still thinking of ways to nudge catalunya out of gold medal position, hey, sure your family don't want to extend your holiday, maybe by another 2 weeks? Haha :idea: Only joking.
    Both enjoy your hols.

    Ahh what a nice post Mark thank you. Well not wishing the wishing for a delay anyway ;) haha.


    Yes still checking in every morning, but Dorset appears to be in the dark ages when it come to phone coverage lol.
    So after a 4 hour journey to get here I only spotted 1 8V on the way and none since arriving!


    Very glad we are getting this break as I think I would be going mad with anticipation by now lol.


    17 Days and 12 hours to go :D
