    Hi everyone,

    I've just (today)ordered a A3 S line 1.4 TFSI with lights and wipers, rear parking sensors in Daytona gray. I'm so excited! I hasn't been given an expected delivery date yet, anyone got an idea of the current list? I expect Feb (4 months) is this reasonable?!

    Welcome to the forum m8 :)
    Think the norm is 3-4 months between ordering and getting it.
    The others in here will have a better idea.
    Maybe with urs not having that much options apart from the comfort pack u might get it quicker ie a cancelation.
    And especially Daytona as it's very popular.
    Plenty threads and countdown threads to keep u busy until then :)

    Could have had mine two months after I ordered, but chose to wait for the 63 plate. Would agree with RobbieWebs that delivery times seem to fluctuate hugely. What I can say (especially just having got back from a drive that had no purpose other than fun) is that you won't regret your decision.

    Thanks RobbieWebs. I hope it's only four months! There's loads of (much more) knowledgable people on here, been addicted looking at the forums since I discovered the site!

    i forgot to mention it also has electric heated / folded / dust able door mirrors.

    Yep very knowledgable folk on here, loads ordered new cars which iv took a great interest in.
    The S line is a really nice spec of a car and well worth the extra.
    Doesn't matter how many options uv selected, at least it's how you wanted the car.
    The comfort pack is money well spent :)
    Too many option junkies in here ... :p

    I have ordered very similar two weeks ago. S line, Sport-back, Daytona grey, comfort pack, interior lights, tinted windows and folding mirrors. They have given me a build week seven and probably end of March delivery.

    I ordered mine in late September, although mine is a Sport but has the same extras as you. I was given build week 50, so I'm looking at just before Christmas, I wanted it to take longer though as I want to hold out till the 14 plates in March :p

    Why not hold out a little longer for the 64 plate?

    Hi Acri16,

    Good choice on the A3 S-Line! I ordered my A3 Sportback S-Line in early August and was told to expect delivery early December. However, to my surprise, I was allocated a mid-September build week which translated into me receiving my vehicle a few weeks afterwards, (ended up being 9 weeks between ordering to delivery) - picked up car 2 weeks ago.

    Even the dealer wasn't too sure how it'd received such an early build-week, but I wasn't going to complain!

    So - in summary, I think 3 - 4 months is the normal expected lead time between ordering to delivery - but don't be surprised if the vehicle is with you a few weeks sooner than you anticipate.

    Ordered s line 184 quattro last week with a confirmed build week of W4 (it was a slot the dealer already had). Expected delivery early March so 3-4 months seems about right. It depends when the dealer can find a build slot - if you have to wait for one of theirs, you just have to wait for one of their slots unless they can a slot from another dealer.... I think the "slot" is defined by engine and transmission you are taking, so you may find ordering the same spec, but different engine will change the assembly date.

    Good point arad85 - possibly ordering the not-so-popular engines / trim might result in a slightly quicker build date,

    (Am asssuming the 1.2 TFSI, 1.8 TFSI and 1.6 TDI engines are not as popular as the the 1.4 TFSI petrols or 2.0 TDIs).

    Would not be so sure, agree on here for example the 1.6TDI does not get much bandwidth but as a company car it will sell like hot cakes. Only one that is a bit of an unknown is the 1.2TFSI as it is new to the A3 range but could sell well in London and the major cities

    Same here my friend I have a build week of 50 and am going to wait for the 14 plate also. My logic is that if you gonna wait all that time you might as well wait and extra couple of weeks and have the car on the brand new plate.

    4/6 weeks delivery seems long, unless maybe the Xmas shutdown is affecting the times. But the car could still arrive mid-January so would you really wait 6 more weeks just to get a new plate? How long would people be willing to delay collecting their dream car just to have new plates?

    Even that is 4 weeks! Is that best guess from your dealer or based on hard facts? Obviously I have a strong interest in your expected collection date.

    Yes I would, if you are buying a new car wouldn't you want people to know you have bought a new car [2014]? Otherwise wouldn't I just of preferred to save a couple of grand and bought a used one from the garage?

    Fair enough and each to his own. For me a new car is a new car. I don't give a monkey's how others are judging me based on the numbers on my plate.

    pfff.....only 4 months, postively short compared to some of us who waited between 5 - 6 months earlier this year.

    Seriously, I am sure it will fly by and you will be collecting your car just as the weather warms and the days start getting longer........happy days!!!

    Sorry, maybe i got my week numbers mixed up, 2nd week of December for delivery.

    No, factory order. Salesman had said that if i ordered the day i was in he could get early December as he'd already managed to put an order through that morning, otherwise would have been end of January and i probably would've just waited and got a 14 plate.

    Cant come soon enough, just got my tax renewal through and its up to £260 for 12 months.

    How would you know if it was stock or factory? The salesman could just say that it's factory when in fact it's stock just sat there waiting to be sold??

    A similar thing happened to me with my focus. The build date was estimated at some eight weeks from point of order. However the salesperson rang me to say that the car would be ready in 4 weeks because there was a stock build that hadn't been assigned to anyone that had the same spec as my order.
