    Yeah I got to agree with that one sorry!

    Richy_C - Where did you get your rings from? I'm going for the black and white theme when mine eventually shows, changing the mirrors to gloss black, fitting some BBS Black Editions (Hopefully if the funds allow it) and was thinking about the rings?

    They might be getting slightly worse. But my wait will be 10 months. I think you're just getting unlucky like me

    I'm starting to panic now, I don't want it running into January to prevent the extra cost of the VAT increase!

    Picked up my S3 this morning and I love it, think it was the first MY11 S3 SB BE the dealer has had in.
    Got a lot of reading and working out what all the buttons do as it is completely different to my old car but its all good. Haven't had a chance to 'open her up' yet as I want to take the first 1k miles easy but it won't take very long!!
    Will get some pics sorted when it stops peeing it down!

    Lucky lucky you! Make sure you post those pictures A.S.A.P. Don't think it'll be for a while though, think this rain is in for a few days?

    No worries, grateful for the reply! I think the black rings make it stand out that little bit more, be sure to post pictures up when fitted!

    I have been given a delivery date of April 2011, ordered mine on 5th August so not sure what to do now. Do i wait it out or cancel my order and buy the Merc C Class sport that the wife wanted?

    They say it's because of the S-Tronic box, Open Sky Roof and the new BE wheels that is causing the delay, i knew there was a delay on the wheels but was told should be ok for December/January.

    I am going to stick it out no matter what, i have told the wife were not getting the c class.

    If it comes in April then at least it moves onto the next reg (11) rather than getting it in Jan/Feb and having a late (60 plate).

    On Order:: A3 2.0TDI 170 Black Edition Sportback :: S-Tronic :: Ibis White :: Vienna Leather :: Open Sky :: Light & Rain Sensor Package :: Bose :: Interior Light Pack :: Folding Mirrors

    I tried out the Merc C class, nice looking car but thought the drive was very boring. Interior also a bit bland.
    Thought about a 3 series M sport too, but still prefer the A3 SB BE - jusy have to stick and wait it out...

    We also looked at the BMW M Sport 2.0d but found the interior to be bland too, like i said previously just stick it out as it will be worth the wait.

    Ive got that exact car now but petrol, the audi gives you more felling and power. BMW is well put together but you cant toss it about.

    I work in an Audi dealer and I have my black edition on order since middle of may. I have been told end of november. Apparently delays have been due to the new wheels.

    I think by the look of it, the higher the spec. the longer you wait, anyone agree?

    Thanks mate, yeah I had been looking at loads of pics on here to get an idea of what the car will look like and then it is weird seeing it in the flesh and thinking, that's mine! It is worth the wait tho, you will love it. :jump:

    Will try and get some interior ones next week, off to Wiltshire today so a good 4 hours plus drive each way!! :rock:

    I was looking at the C350CDi or 330D but really wanted the quattro and was cheaper. My Dad has the C180k, you can just see it behind my first pic above! It is a very nice car and with the Sat Nav and sport pack the interior and exterior is quite nice but yes I agree it is a bit boring to drive.

    Not sure mate, I ordered around 2nd week of May and picked it up on Thursday so just over 3 months and I have S3 SB BE with Tech pack, Comfort pack, Interior light pack, Adapative lights, folding mirrors, no smoking pack and tpm.
    I mentioned to the dealer about people having to wait a stupidly long time and he said the order system going down was a problem and apparently Audi has gone mad in of other countries, USA, China etc. and UK orders have also gone through the roof and they just can't cope with production!?!
