    I thought seems as there was a thread for other build weeks I would make one encompassing the weeks above so we can all await our cars together.

    Mine is build week 19 for an S3 3 door S-Tronic after being pushed back from 15 for changing from amalfi to monsoon.

    Feel free to add your info and hopefully we can help each other get through these last few painful weeks.

    Thanks

    Oh finally a thread for me too :)

    I ordered mine early march, build week 20 and delivery estimated to mid June.

    A3 Sportback 1.8 TFSI Quattro S-tronic
    S-Line Daytona Grey
    Panoramic Sunroof, Advanced key, Black optics package, B/O Sound system, ACC, Interior lightning package, Parking sensors front and rear, 18" 5-spoke black rotors.

    I just tried to change a spec but was told the order is locked in for production. He said if I wanted to change anything I would need to what until October as demand is so high.

    Think I can live without interior lights :)

    It's getting close

    How do you see what code you are on? Or do you just have to ask the dealer

    What specs did you go for ??

    I hope to god everything is as I ordered it, after reading the previous BW thread, one was delivered with a manual gearbox when they ordered an s-tronic. Think I would be sick.

    Any accidental extras would be more than welcome though :)

    The factory rarely if ever get it wrong during production. The problem is usually with the person typing in the order at the dealers. Orders used to go to Audi UK who entered the details in to the Audi AG computer system but this is now done by the individual dealer. When the order is entered a Vehicle Data form is printed and if you were not given a copy of this, you could always ask for one.
    It lists things like Order Number, Acceptance Date, Status Code, Port of entry to the UK, Model year, Model code, Model description, Exterior Colour, Interior trim colour and all the Options with their respective 3-digit code (as used in the Price and Specification Guide).

    Got a nice surprise here too - I was down for build week 18. Rang the dealer this morning to make sure it's still scheduled for then and it's already built and currently in transit to the ship!!

    They're estimating 3 weeks for delivery to me from now.

    Getting closer!!

    From reading around it would seem that a lot of builds have been a week ahead recently so I would say the odds are pretty good.

    Had an email from my dealership this afternoon informing my S3 has been built.

    I think this is the first time buying a new car have I had a salesman keep me informed and regularly updated as promised. Oddly two years ago the same salesman when buying my A1 never kept me updated. Regardless, I like him a lot so gave him the business again. Must have been on a customer service course.....

    For the guys hoping they are going to get their order brought forward don't expect it to be by too much. I was week 19 and it moved forward to week 16 a few weeks after ordering and then back to 17 about a month ago. Dealer said when placing my order the build slots regularly come forward magically a few weeks before build so disappointed this didn't happen for me.

    Happy it's built but still another 4 weeks to go :sob:

    It may be less - mine arrived at my dealers 20 days after being built. 8 days from factory to Grimsby and then 12 days from Grimsby to the dealer.

    150tdi Sportback, glacier white, black styling, b and o stereo, privacy glass, black roof rails and comfort pack. Tried to add LED lights to the options as read you could do that with the comfort pack for less and interior pack after reading forum. But car was locked in. Dealer said the LED lights would be 795 and not 490 with comfort pack as I read that on here. So went away feeling not so bad as would not pay that much for them anyway. One stone and bang!!

    Just phoned Audi CS to see if my build week had come forward any but its still build week 19 :(

    He also said that delivery would be mid July sometime so I hope hes adding in a safty factor as the dealer told me start of June. If its getting built next week surely it wont take 10 weeks to deliver it.

    Start of June sounds better to me. Most people seem to be around the 4 week mark. Will be pissed off if it doesn't come till mid July.

    I found Bexley to be good so far, I bought my used A3 from them last year, they couldn't of helped enough, I had a few issues with the A3 and they sorted them all.

    Mine is Yasin, Wesley seems Ok though, he helped me out when Yasin was off a month ago. I got Some MMI leads and going to ask for a bit more on Thursday :)

    Ordered 8 April, was originally quoted delivery date of 26 June. Just heard from the dealer that my car is due for production next week (week 19).

    Hopefully it won't take 7 weeks to get here...

    Just had email update from dealer to say everything is on track for Build next week.

    She is expecting the car the end of this month which seems pretty good in comparison to other BW 19's on here.

    Not long to go now..... :thumbsup:

    So today my dealer emailed through to me the VIN, number plate details and a notice to say the V5 / tax disc has been posted.

    Has the process changed? Sure last time I bought a new car (two years ago) I had to get insurance certificate before they could tax it.

    Hoping doing all this means my salesman is confident it's making its way to the dealer quickly !!

    When I asked my dealer just before mine was delivered he said that proof of insurance is still required to register a new car.
