    2 weeks from build to delivery is a tad optimistic I think.

    I sent my dealer a recorded letter since both them and Audi UK are no longer returning my calls.

    Piss poor service.

    Naa. I said being built next week and then delivery 2 weeks after that. :)

    My current A3 took the same amount of time. 3week turnaround once build has started.

    What's the problem you are having with Audi? Every time I have rang Audi UK they always called me back.

    Basically a mate ordered 4 weeks after me and he has his car now. Mines still hasn't been built. They are the same spec.

    Audi UK kept retuning my phone calls stating there was no delay untill I gave them my mates vin and order number and asked them to compare them on the system. They still have not returned my phonecall with a valid explination as to why mines has taken 14 weeks longer than his.

    Hi, new to the forum. Placed my order through work (Lex autolease) 2 weeks ago. Haven't been quoted any delivery dates as yet. Im told that they have ordered it through the Bolton dealership. Reading through some of these posts, Im hoping it will arrive by March 2012. I might be being a tad optimistic. Anyone got any pictures of:

    Really doesn't make any sense...

    I ordered an S3 about seven weeks ago (not a Black Edition though) and got quoted Feb/March '12 but rang them two days ago and turns out it's been built and awaiting shipment. Should arrive in the next two weeks. Three months early...that's almost unheard of lol.

    it is a balck edition i have ordered but so far its been pushed back 5 times and has 89 "slippage days"


    i do have a fairly nice hire car but not the point and i cant really throw a wobbler as its a company car.

    seriously didnt know my wife was pregnant when it was ordered, my money is on here delivering first!!!!

    if it gets put back again, i am going to throw a strop

    all the best

    If you ordered mid-October, March would probably be optimistic unless you were light/lucky on the options. I ordered at the start of August and quoted March delivery. You might get a March build week and it arrive in April, I'd imagine, although I wouldn't be surprised if it turned up in May. Then again, it seems some are getting luckier than others.

    I stole the sex-wee quote from Avid Merrion off Bo Selecta. Factually accurate of course though :)

    I put a picture in an album here to show people the car (only low res iPhone picture) but it doesn't seem to link only red x :-(

    I took it out yesterday for a drive round Yorkshire and enjoyed it a lot.

    Sorry to hear others are having nightmares. Mine took 6.5 months and had some unusual options. It is worth the wait.

    guess what, its gone back again to end of March!! from a chuffing early July order

    Thats it for me guys, Audi can stick it!!!!! its not even bad customer service, its non existant!!!

    I actually spoke to the guy at the dealer before i ordered and was told before christmas.


    going to phone the lease company and tell them i dont want it tomorrow!!!

    Black Edition, in case its more like Slack Edition on Audis part, absolute rubbish!!!

    I'd hang in there. I cancelled mines after a delay then 2 months later re ordered lol. Lucikly the original car I ordered was sitting at the port as no one had wanted that spec.

    I have calmed down a little now, but still phoned the lease company this morning for a winge!!

    its a bit soppy I know but i had it in my head that i would pick my wife and the new baby up from hospital in it, no chance of that now.

    on a positive note, it will stop me worrying about taking her to hospital in it,

    breathe dear, watch the nail marks in my leather, Ohhh thats going to leave a mark:undwech:

    I have to agree with jagojon, I ordered my BE end June and was told dec then Jan but have an unconfirmed build of 2nd week in Jan if it changes they can stuff the car I don't mind waiting but I think they are now taking the p1ss,
    They might be a good car but there is a limit to how much you can mess customers around, could be time we started following the moans with actions

    I'm getting rid of the A3 and I have ordered a Golf GTI. Initially ordered in August, was promised by the dealer that they had allocation, but after a month and a half it turns out they were lying and were trying to purchase allocation from another dealer (unsuccessfully) without me knowing, so they eventually had to come clean. Ordered from another dealer in November, was given build week 4 of 2012, which has now disappeared off the order and there's no build week at all anymore (hasn't even been pushed back - just no date at all). Been in touch with the dealer, Volkswagen UK (CEO's PA level) and the factory in Wolfsburg, eventually turns out it's being delayed due to my wheels, and as the factory is closing over Christmas they can't give a week until they re-open, or some ****. VAG customer service = extremely poor. I wish there was another car that I wanted so I could say "**** you" and order it but there's nothing. :(

    Yup - I think this was delivered from Leeds Audi - I live East of Leeds. I was hoping for YO61 so I could call it YOGI....
    We also seem to have had almost the same delivery experience - mine was just a few weeks later than yours. First ever black car, and I have to say when clean it looks great, but it gets mucky very quickly especially with all the salt that is about. Running in period finished earlier this week - certainly is rapid when you give it the beans :lmfao:.

    Hi, new to the site.

    Just got order confirmation from my work leasing company, with a delivery date of 04/04/12.

    Have ordered the A3 Black Edition 140, with pearl - Phantom Black Paint.

    Does this sound realistic or should I expect a delay?

    6 months for an A3, if it wasn't such a desirable car Audi would be truly fecked. A disgrace. No wonder people are looking elsewhere.
