Called into the dealer today for update; My car is arriving at the dealership tomorow and collection on Tuesday all being well !! I suppose I have been pretty lucky after having read this thread with interest. Vehicle was built a week ahead of schedule (week 38) shipped over within 10 days and being brought to dealer tomorrow. I agree with the above, the new A3 will be 3 door only upon launch and with minimal spec, anything like the Black Edition will be some time away and as the current A3 is still a strong seller Audi wont be rushing to launch all variants and specs. On order; 1.8 TFSI ,Sportback, Black Edition, Ibis White, Leather/alc, Pan roof, Comfort pk.
