    Have an enjoyable pick up. Don't forget Pic's. Wait would've been worth it I'm sure.

    Ditto - enjoy your day, I had a huge tick sheet when I arrived at the dealer but that went out the window when I saw the car all beautifully prepared!

    Car didn't get on ferry this week, so it'll be next week now - still on track to get to dealers by 14th (apparently!). It will have been at Emden for 3 weeks by the time it hitches a ride...

    I'm build week 12. Was told my car should either be on the ship that arrives at port of Tyne on Wednesday past or next Thursday.
    Looks like it will be on next Thursdays ship as I have not heard from me dealer yet.... :(

    Perhaps they leave all the windows open on the way to get rid of the smell of the fish or perhaps the smell only lingers with the COD versions.

    I wonder if the transported will make a detour via Huntingdon to drop off (not literally I hope) my Sportback.

    My car arrived at the dealers and every car on it and it was full was for them. Would appear that they waited to get a complete load to save on there costs? On my previous visits when a transporter has arrived it has been full and again complete off load.

    Yes I'm sure that's the way they operate, I was only joking.

    My particular dealer has an off-site PDI and storage area on the old USAF base at Alconbury just at the junction of the A1 and A14. All their news cars are delivered to this centre first and given their PDI etc before being taking to the main showrooms area to be collected by the customer.

    I spoke to the Assistant Service Manager who is also a Master Tech yesterday about something I wondered if they could do for me before the car is delivered and he said it would be no problem and they would collected the car from the PDI centre and do it in the main workshop.

    Mine arrived in Grimsby on 26 March and has not been delivered to my dealers yet. Usually within a couple of weeks.

    I heard there was a backlog and apparently Audi UK have laid on more transporters to compensate, so hopefully we should see cars a bit quicker now...here's hoping...

    Hope so - I've been told by Audi CS that it's scheduled to get to the dealer on 14th but that seems pretty quick if it doesn't get to the UK until the 11th...

    Called dealer this morning, who confirmed my car arrived at their showroom yesterday evening, and I've arranged to collect it next Friday.....really looking forward to it! For those interested, it was built during week 10, and the dealer is in Essex.

    I have just had a phone call from my dealer to say that my new 8V was delivered to them on Saturday.

    They will now register it with my Private Plate and it will be ready to collect later in the week.

    Only a few more days now:)

    Maybe but Sheerness is where mine is going and I think that's the problem.
