Hi there! Welcome, and as Petoz says the delays are very widespread. Good luck with February!
Ordered my now A3 SB Black Edition 170ps S-Tronic, Ibis White, Open Sky, Full Leather, Light & Rain Package, Interior Light Package and Folding Mirrors on 5th August, and was told expected delivery 2nd week November but not holdling too much hope after reading this forum...
hi bud i got my black edition last year in ibis white i went for the 170 version and its a dream to drive
i had the interior light pack and cruise control as options as well as full leather
i have just had my black front rings and rear rings delivered and had 19" bbs lm fitted and it look very nice indeed.
i only have mine for a year as i bought it tax free and the s3 is ont he cards for feb next year.
Any pictures, sounds like a good spec plus I'm thinking about fitting 19'' BBS Black Editions?
HERES A PIC BEFORE I HAD THE BBS LM FITTED
HERES THE BBS FITTED HAVE CHANGED THE TYRES SINCE TO 225/35/19's AND I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH RUBBING NEXT IS T LOWER IT 25 mm
lets see the front then, ive got some black rings front and rear to go on mine when it gets here.
So no one kind enough to give the PN of those sick dark windows...
I need the side and rear please!!!!!!!!!
Gotta say I much prefer the original wheels than the BBS ones.
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?
Are delivery dates getting worse...I've now been told to expect delivery April 2011 (Ordered May 2010 !!)
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!
Glad you love it! Can't wait to see some pics. Hurry up and stop raining!!!
Sorry only just noticed the question, i got mine from Ebay the USA Dubstop, very reasonable too and quick.
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 will, if i ever get the car that is!
Yeah I know, was going to add that but didn't think it was for me to say! Think positive, it'll be worth it!
OH no feel for you man having to wait that long these times are becoming a joke, well I have been waiting since march and have been confirmed build week 34 so shouldn't be that long now I dare say.
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?
April!! Ordering mine today but through a lease company. Is it because of demand or spec..
If they come back with April i'll get something else
If its through a lease company why not ask what is in stock. Got mine in 2 weeks!!
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.
They've said December.. I've had the Quattro, New BE wheels & Vienna leather
This Buy now to beat VAT rise | Auto Express News | News | Auto Express mite be intresting for people who are worried about the VAT rise.
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
Thanks for the replies guys and managed to get a few pics today, although on phone camera so not brilliant:
Nice shots Nick, closest to seeing what mine might look like lol
She look well.
Meant to ask this before and it is pretty sad but does anyone on here drive down the M1 past j25 then onto the M42 every morning? i pass a white be sb every day.
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 am have been told the delay on mine is the wheels, open sky roof and s-tronic gearbox..
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.
Will try and get some interior ones next week, off to Wiltshire today so a good 4 hours plus drive each way!!
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!?!
