    The new River Terminal at Grimsby allows the larger car carrying ships to use Grimsby. The smaller ones that are still used for most of the Audi deliveries still go straight through the large lock shown in the picture next to the tower, through the Royal Dock and into the Alexandra Dock where they do a 180 degree turn and reverse up to the unloading area.

    Unfortunately I have not got an order No. Just has Spec Amend where the order No. should be, so can not enquire with Audi Customer Services. Was advised that I would be kept updated al all stages, all the updates have been as a result of me enquiring the last was last Monday when it was informed that it was at Emden dock. Sent email Friday and Saturday but no response from the dealer. Will not purchase another car from this dealer. Tried to ring dealer during opening hours yesterday no answer????????

    The only way I know to track it is to get your order number from the dealer - mine did supply and I am getting a more accurate picture of delivery from Audi Customer Services.

    Thanks, getting that might be hard as well. Don't know if it's the salesman or the dealership as a whole, if I get time I may pop in later today. Its like they got my signature and then did not care. Don't think the customer service survey will be to good???

    I didn't know my order number when I called Audi CS, they found it in a few minutes thought based on my details and dealer.

    Have called the dealer, states that it is on the water at this time????? That means that my car sat at Emden for 7 days before it got on a ship bound for the UK???? I'm also told that there is a back log of cars waiting at Grimsby for transportation to dealers. Salesman unable to give me a day when it should arrive with them. Looks like collection will be some day? Got my retention certificate today which is 8 days from me posting the application off to DVLA, which is good.

    I'm build week 10, but my dealer called on Friday to say it was still stuck at the port on the other side of the channel :(

    Don't know why my poor car missed it's slot, but hey ho. He reckons 50:50 for delivery this week, so likely next week now :search:

    Mine was at sheerness on the 19th March awaiting a transporter, dealer has confirmed it is at the dealers now.

    Not sure if that helps with timings for you!

    Well mine took 5 days from being built to arriving at Emden - then a week before it was on a ferry bound for the UK. Hope this helps, sure other people have different times.

    BW11 - mine arrived at Emden on the 19th and is still waiting for the ship to Grimsby. Dealer checked another order and that was the 13th into Emden, 20th on the ship and 22nd in the UK.

    Hopefully be on its way this week although looks like the Schelde Highway might have turned back yesterday :sos:

    BW9 - brought forward from bw10. Still in so called transit from UK port to dealers! PCP purchase via Fleet Car company. Getting nowhere fast. Refuse to give me Order number as doing so can"complicate" things. Told to wait which I interpret to mean they cannot be bothered.

    Would Audi customer services be able to help?

    When I called in to my dealers earlier today to give them my PP Retention Certificate I asked if they knew the VIN number yet. Yes was the reply and the young lady wrote it down on the back of one of her cards. When I got home I sent a PM to the US website that had provided me with a full 'Car data' printout for my existing Sportback from the Audi computer system. I have just received a print-out from them listed 176 three digit codes and descriptions giving all the 'bits' the car is fitted with and the date the car was actually built - 18-Mar-14.
