    Mine was ordered on about the second week of May to be in the first week of the MY11 builds which I think was week 26 (End of June). It's been at the dealers for about a month.

    No worries, I am hoping to get it in a couple of weeks now so will let you know.

    I ordered an S3 SB BE in Ibis White, with Tech pack, comfort pack, int. light pack and ordered around 2nd week of May. I am told it will be a MY11.

    I assume the reason it has been at the dealers for a month is you are waiting for September 1st reg?

    S3's don't seem to be affected as badly as the normal A3 BE, or at least the majority of S3 orders on here have been a lot better lead time than the A3's

    LongWait4aBE - 11 months
    Richy_C - 5.5 months
    Petoz - 6 months
    RB84 - 10 months
    redleg - 2.5 months???
    VRStu - 3 months
    Diamond - 8 months
    Piotrtdi - 4 months


    Absolute luck of the draw then? Surely they will start getting back on top of it soon? I have everything crossed that when I order in two months it will be back to normal, at least a bit? (4 months would do! Just not 10!!!!)

    It would be interesting to find out which cars have been ordered privately and which are company/lease ordered using third party. I suspect that company/lease purchase deal with only one or two dealers which give them the best discount but when they order more cars than their dealers have allocated they just push it back to the next month, then the next and the next...

    I thought I'd had a long wait but actually sounds like I was quite lucky! I ordered my S3 BE (3 dr) on 3rd April and picked it up on 30th July so just under 4 months. It was ordered via Stockport Audi.

    Ordered mine through Huntingdon Audi with a lease company.

    Slightly off topic but how did you find Derby to deal with? They are closer to me and I initially had a quote and test drive but then after choosing my options they never got back to me with a re-quote?

    Nice choose of car! I personally can't really see enough difference between Suzuka Grey and Ibis White to pay an extra £1500 or however much it is?

    Ended up paying £1000.00 for an exclusive paint as this is my 3rd audi from the same dealership over a period of 15 months. Sazuka Grey is a different class compared to Ibis White .. Ibis White is to common now ... Seen couple of S3's on here plus i love jamiekip's tt-rs in sazuka grey and thats what influenced by decission lol :p

    Waiting this long for a car is just a joke, I hate waiting!

    Already buying new detailing bits 'n' bobs for it but with it coming in December it'll probably be a couple of months before I get the opportunity!

    Mine was ordered first week of May 2010 through Provecta lease company, don't know which dealers as they won't tell me. Still think delivery date of March 2011 is taking the p***
    Trying to change the spec due to 20% VAT increase, which is not going too well at the moment, they say "It may delay the delivery !!!!"

    I've been following this thread since i decided on the A3 SB Black Edition as my next car.

    My order was placed on the 18th of June. I was expecting delivery around the end of October. Luckily i got a heads-up on the A3production problems and started chasing Audi (via 'lease' company) earlier in the week.

    I was not at all surprised to learn that my delivery is now 'late December'. After exchanging a few emails (via 'lease' company) i have been told that Audi are covering the VAT increase on my order (should delivery slip to January), as it was placed before the 22nd of June.
    I suggest if anyone else in in a similar position that they check up on this, as it could save you £££s!

    I think the VAT increase will cause some serious implications for some people. I think I was looking at circa £800 when they initially announced the intention - I breathed a sigh of relief they waited until January.

    People who place there order like me and some other people on here before Audi's price increase back in May, are price protected from the VAT increase if the car go into next year. I saw the e-mail that was sent to the dealers. But if you place another now and the car comes next year you will have to pay the VAT increase.

    We ordered a standard A3 Sportback S-Line 170bhp TDi with DSG. Options were Comfort Pack, Full Leather, Heated Seats, Symphony, Met Paint, Interior Light Pack.

    Ordered 14th Feb 2010
    Built Week 14 2010
    Delivery to dealer 23rd April 2010
    On the drive at home 30th April 2010.

    Considering the difference between the BE and standard S-Line is wheels, grill, steering wheel, privacy, Xenons and Bose how come they are taking this long to build? I know Audi has a shutdown but this has been going on for a while now??!!

    1. they forgot to order enough of the new wheels
    2. they had a two week shut down
    3. their computer system crashed and they added all the orders back out of date order
    4. in some cases the lease companys ordering through Audi didnt place orders till later than they said they had.

    and im sure there are more reasons.
