    I don't think all the cars on the train are white. It's just the covers used to protect them on the journey :)

    I wonder how the A3 Saloons and Cabriolets get from Gyor in Hungary to Emden. Do they go direct or via Ingolstadt. There are a number of trains each day from Gyor to Ingolstadt carrying completed TTs and engines.

    No doubt if the cars were being built in the UK they would all be transported by road based car transporters !!

    Those full body transport covers are only afforded to A8, S8 and R8 models.

    Mere mortal models get lesser sticky plastic, and even then, not full panel coverage. They do get a fabric roof protector though.

    I assume the top picture showing the TTs are ones that have come back from final assembly in Gyor. The bodies are made in Ingolstadt, shipped (or should that be trained) to Gyor where final assembly takes place and then they are 'trained' back to Ingolstadt for distribution.

    Yes I think thats how it works, I don't think Gyor is set up for logistically dealing with final distribution.

    Does anybody know how long cars usually sit at Emden before they are loaded onto UK bound ships?

    Well, after contacting the finance company I'm bowing out from this thread - my car was actually built in week 9, is in the UK and on its way to the dealers woohoo! It was brought forward 1 week hehe.

    So my S3 Saloon went to code 30 last Thursday :). Does anyone know (or have experience) of how long it takes to go through each code, or at least get from ex-factory to dealer pick-up? Be good to exstimate my pickup date...

    Give Audi CS a call on 0800 699888, that's what I did. You might have a nice surprise!

    Well that was a depressing phone call, just been informed that my change from Amalfi White to Monsoon Grey has now shifted my order back a month to Build Week 19 so expecting delivery end of May instead of end of April.
