By what the dealer said today i should be getting his Q5 tomorrow, hard core 4x4........ lol
Have you got anymore pics of that car... ie, Side view and front.... ive got one on order and am gaggin to see pics of the exact spec im gettin..... A3 TDI, S-Tronic, Black Edition, in Ibis White with the open sky roof...... Surely someones got one or 2 pics.....
you and me Matt! once i get mine this month will plaster some pics, this is the only one i can find thats close really.
Good looking motor, think the new wheels improve it now though as well as the other subtle changes!
Its been the most annoying thread ever.... people keep posting pics, but none are identical.... Either an S3, or the old style wheels like that above.... Actually saw one today in Sheffield and treid following it for a few miles to see where he lived... felt like a bloody stalker....
Haha Sure you can get done for that!
Salesman call today told me that the car should be getting delivered late evening tomorrow, so depending on how late it is i mite even can pick up the hire car tomorrow. If not he said it will be delivered first thing Thursday morning so i can have it late morning. He said if for some reason i can't have it, he will give me his A5 cab until my is sorted. Dealer as been very helpful.
I know.... especially when drivin like a complete prat to keep up with it... my missus thought i was off my head...
A5 Cab. . Yes please!
Haha She doesn't know how much it really means though!
Yeah have to say the sales team have been very helpful.
LoL.....I was thinking the same.
That is a mega result, I would consider not returning and running off with it!
The A5 Cab is stunning, can't think of a better Cab on the market?
I only get the A5 cab, if the hire car A4 is not ready by Thursday.
I am new on here but have been following this thread for a few weeks. I have just been given a build date for my BE of Week 40, which having placed the order in Week 16 (late April) gives me a lead time of 24 weeks.
My car is ordered through a Company Lease with Zenith Provecta, so info has been fairly patchy until I chased them the other day. I have found that I am also eligible for a courtesy car (thanks to you guys for pointing it out in this forum) so hopefully that will be sorted out fairly soon.
Waiting for this car has been agony, perhaps a 'free' Audi in the meantime will make it easier to wait...
Good work! Well done for pushing for the hire car, it should make the wait a little easier on you. Also your 24 weeks is pretty awesome, mine will be hitting over 40 by the time the car is delivered at this rate! Good luck with it all and keep on them if stuff doesn't seem to be moving quickly.
On the German Configurator the 2.0Tdi 170 Quattro shows 2 exhaust pipes but changes to 1 only with the 140 option. Will have to wait and see.
I believe its like this, if your car has stop start it will have a single tail pipe. That seems to be the way its turning out.
My car was ordered through Zenith Provecta back in early May 2010 - expected delivery is mid April 2011. I have been enquiring about Audi Mobility Programme (Audi courtesy car) with Provecta, but have not had a response. Who have you been dealing with ?
Some great news for a change, sales guy called me up today and sounded very surprised as he previously told me the next time he rings will be to say the car is on the boat but in fact had rung to say the car is already in uk and being delivered to them tomorrow (but technically today as it is 2am at the time of writing this) and should be ready to pick up friday he told me he couldn't believe how fast it was as it was only built last week so a week and half build/ship/delivery time not bad as i was expecting an other week or two.
When did you placed the order? and What BE model have you gone for?
Not wishing to rub it in but I picked mine up yesterday
Very pleased with it. Didn't get it until late last night so only done about 60 miles so far.
It does have Stop/Start but so does the one on the Audi Config showing 2 pipes on the Quattro 170 Tdi... we hope it does
Unless you work for the same mob I do, the contact will be different as each account has a specific contact. When you placed the order, Zenith would have sent you an email with all of the contact details on, I have just been using the email address provided and they generally respond within a few hours.
Zenith claim that their fleet orders are given at least equal priority, so no back of the queue mentality, but they use more than one Audi dealer so lead times would be different.
I have received (yesterday) a response claiming that I should be eligible for the loan car, but they were going to clarify. My contact claimed to know nothing about it, they spoke to the dealer (who they won't give me any details of) who said it should be OK but wasn't 100% sure about fleet purchases qualifying. I should find out formally today. I am assuming as the dealer didn't say no straight away that they should come back with a positive response.
Sweet nice one, Some luck at last
Looking good Stu!
Hey, Richy_C are you in your hire car yet? What did they give you?
I hope it as two.
Ordered 15 march and went for the 3 door 1.8t phantom black cant wait now!
Finally picked up my hire car today from Audi. It's A4 2.0DTI SE including Sat nav & AMI, bluetooth, front and rear senors. Its brand new as it only got 100 miles on the clock. To be honest i didn't expect it have so much extra's on it. This will keep me happy for the next 3 months until my BE comes.
Im considering getting a run around for a few more months and getting the new A3? Is there any word yet? I rang the dealer and he mentioned something about March? I think its getting to the point that I will drive around happy as larry for 2 months and then the shine will be taken right off when a whole new model is out?
Oh my chickens, im confused WHEN will this absolute mess be sorted?
Diamond - exactly the same hire car I've got, but mine is in Phantom. Not a bad car at all.
Also got some bad news on the 170 TDI exhaust... had it confirmed as a single pipe due to the stop/start. So that's it. All stop/start A3's now have a single exhaust pipe. I wanted the fat dual exhaust!!
Exactly the same as the hire car I was given, except my A4 is brilliant red. I wasn't expecting as much either, so can't complain. Makes me want the BE even more though!
Twin Exhausts????? I think your source may be wrong. What has S/S got to do with exhaust pipes. The A4 SS 2.0TDi has 2!¬!
Audi UK Configurator doesn't list the A3 with 170 Tdi Quattro so I looked at German and French. The 170 both FWD and Quattro appear to have 2 exhausts! Take a look... I may stand corrected when it arrives or if I see one first but I reckon twin will feature on all 170bhp A3's even with S/S
Audi France > Gamme > A3 > A3 Sportback
As per my other posts, we've a new BE on order and being produced week 40. selling 08 model a bit early to beat VAT rise AND most importantly there is no new A3 likely for at least another year and then not all models and specs will be available at launch. Audi have there hands full at present with new A1,A8, A7, a Q3 is planned too. Also Audi Marketing have moved current A3 from a push to a pull model which is typical in the last year. My source is pretty reliable but I cannot guarantee the above.
car did arrive today went down to dealers to sign registration forms etc and had a look at it, its looks great cant wait to drive it away tomorrow.Also got the life shine for free so am pleased with that as it is £400 to buy.
thanks for the info! what does push and pull model mean?
i think ill stick with the creme de la creme of this a3 rather than get the basic/early version of the next then! good thinkin and now we wait.
Have a good look over all the panels with the life shine chap! they sometimes make a right pigs ear of it. No pictures though??
Diamond, looks nice, how chunky are the tires though lol!! Still can not knock a free car can you, glad its all coming good for most people at last.
last message from my dealer was that he had signed the paperwork for my audi car but said they were getting 15 new demonstrators in yesterday / today for staff cars and said i could have what ever they give him till mine comes, has no idea what it will be though. My mind is saying TT A5... but better to wait and see ha ha..
Oh and sorry to hear about the conformation on the single tail pipes, thinking about it i would guess that the stop start means that they are trying to reduce the c02 output and maybe its a euro law that means green cars have one pipe? sounds stupid but i have to work with some pretty screwy euro laws.
