Currently waiting for the new arrival - ordered two weeks ago and got a build date of wk51 which isn't too bad at all. Its a A3 2.0TFSI Sline. Given we don't have the joy of picking up a car direct from the factory, I was just wondering what the timescales are, and what actually happens. My lease company tend to be a bit useless to get that kind of information. I imagine it is built at somewhere like Brussells or Germany then transported (probably by train) to be shipped over every so often (say every week) then gets to the dealer a few days after arriving and they spend a week or so doing what they need to do. I guess something like a month from build date to actually receiving the goods. Which bits of the above (probably all) is complete rhubarb! - any information gratefully received.
