    That is basically what I have on order which is due next month. That has got to be a cancelled order as we have all had 5+ months wait for ours.

    Sorry mate, don't know about the build time, but when did you order and have you got a confirmed date or is it provisional?

    I think they turn the cars around in a day? Anyway, if you go from the Friday of your build date it should be at the dealers 3 weeks from then

    I'm not entirely sure to be honest! Its a company car and i put my order in with my company back in September, not sure how quickly they actually placed the order. The build date was confirmed by Audi, and from what i've heard they're pretty accurate? I've heard rumours of about a month to build?

    Finally got round to putting a S-Line grill badge on today. Only a small mod, but i think the front looks lot better with it.

    Yes, this does look a lot better, hope it is more like that as I assume they will keep the next model for a good few years and I would like another A3 next time.

    Fixing the badge is straight forward, the hardest part is fixing the 2 clips which go behind the grill as you got to be careful not to drop the clips and lose them behind the grill.

    I got mine from Stoke Audi and here are the part numbers:

    S-Line grill badge: 4F0-853-736-B-2ZZ (£17)

    Clamp Clips: 8L0 807 180 (2xclips £1.97)

    Yeah, you will have to let me know.

    Any more news about your car yet?
    You seem to be one of the longest waiting person for a BE.

    Been ringing around the dealers to try and find out which one it was ordered through, as Provecta will not give info.
    I have just found out which dealers and spoken to them. It is built awaiting importing, should be with them early March. When I asked about courtesy car due to delayed delivery they said no problem, but no one has been in touch with them to request one !!

    First time poster...long time reader of BE
    I'm a big fan of the BE and will hopefully be ordering one in March/April as a company car replacement ( currently new shape mazda 6). From what I have read and witnessed there is a 6 month delay. Is there any idea on why? Two work friends also have ordered, one received in 5 months and another has been waiting7 months to find out today that he is going to be given a hire Audi A3 until his turns up, which he did not chase....it was out of the kind hearted Audi dealer supplying it.

    My other questions are...has anyone ordered one in the new scuba blue, and can you get one in the S-line red.
    What MPG are driver getting off the 2.0 TDI 140bhp on a run
    Cheers
    Mark M.

    Well the supply and demand mean that its a 6 month wait unless you get lucky with a canceled order.

    If you want the scuba blue unless its an option you would have to pay the additional cost to up the colour spec. any colour is available if you do that.

    MPG for my 140 tdi example i went from Burton on Trent to Brighton last week and got 63mpg doing 70-80mph.

    Hope that helps.
