    Was originally told wk 23 for delivery but just been informed that is now my build week. The lease company are quoting delivery W/E 29th July which I thought was excessive.

    My build week was wk18 and picking it up this Friday (end of wk20). But guess it varies depending on shipping dates to the UK.

    I think it also depends on which factory it is being built in as well from what I understand.

    Yes it could well do. A3 Sportbacks are currently being built in both the Ingolstadt and Brussels plants. Ingolstadt sends all it's units by train to Northern Germany for loading onto a ship to the UK. Not sure how the Brussels built units get to the UK.
