    Went into dealer yesterday to check whether s-tronic is an option on rrder. Turns out its not available on the 2.0TDI which is a relief as I dont need to worry about deciding to have it or not.
    Also noticed a spanking new black edition avant with an enhanced specification to the BEs that we are all waiting for. I cant remember what the salesperson called the model but its the BE with more. Basically it has a chrome and Black styling and there was a silver difuser under the front body kit. Also the titanium wheels were gloss black (a feature she said was only available on this model) All in all it looked very beefy but not my taste with the chrome in places.

    That would be the special ed they are doing, i think this is only a 2.0 tfsi around 240 bhp or something like that, seems to me Audi have some parts to get rid of...

    Still looks good though!!

    Are the wheels not actually the 5 arm hollow spoke rather than the black edition titanium? My local dealer has a bright red A4 special edition with a red rear diffuser and gloss black under tray on the front splitter along with the hollow spoke wheels in gloss black. TBH I really didn't like the look of it as it was all a bit garish, may have looked better in a more subtle colour though.

    Wheels were the 19" 'Rotor' Titanium finished wheels in shiny black instead of titanium. All in all the car looked superb but not as good as the BE IMO

    Mojo - Thanks for the pics however it’s the other option wheels I’ve spec’d (segment style) – hope your liking the car?

    Surfstar – think you referring to the Audi A4 2.0 T FSI quattro Dynamik? Not keen on these, way to bling for me!

    That's a bit too bling for my liking.

    Had an email from the dealers this evening. Build has been confirmed and scheduled for W/C 9th May with delivery scheduled for W/C 6th June.

    My build week is fast approaching week 20 16/05, I will sadly say goodbye to my beemer next week and will have the pleasure of the office pool car until the audi arrives (renault meganne:gaehn:), from experience what delivery times are people seeing from build completion to delivery, dealer is stating 6 weeks, however suspect they are just being cautious

    I'm still on for build week 23 + 3 weeks to deliver. I'm hoping the dealer will call me soon with some good news.
    Seems the 2.0tdi avant plus quattro is late into production :(

    I checked again and my car was actually ordered early march, delivery for July 6th.

    My colleagues are now starting to rub it in, a lot getting their beemers delivered already!!

    Another colleague ordered a merc e250 feb though and it's put back til sept!!

    All this sunshine and no nice car :(

    And I bet it'll bloody rain for months when I get mine in July!!

    This will be the nicest car I've ever personally had, so its killing me waiting.

    Good luck to all those getting them soon!

    It's hard watching everyone else get theirs while you're still waiting isn't it, my brother in law has just bought a used A5, and my Father in law has just taken delivery of a Mercedes E350 while I'm still driving round in my little fiesta!

    I feel your pain chaps - i ordered towards the end of March,
    roll on week No.27 for my build!
    It's only this forum that's keeping me sain!
    Would be good if you could track the order online like
    BMW do - so woulnt have to phone the dealer every week!

    Well, week 18 (my build week) has arrived, hopefully not to long now fingers crossed. the wait has become all the more painful now that my old car has gone, currently have the pleasure of a renault scenic till the new one arrives, suppose I should be grateful of a free car to use.:puke2:

    I had a call from my dealer this afternoon, my car went into production today so that's a week ahead of schedule, she said this had been happening on a few customers cars lately.

    Hopefully delivery last week of this month :greyrs4:
