    Yup, been before a few years ago when I had my 2.0Tq A4 avant. Spent a day there (factory tour, forum and a meal in the Michelin star restaurant in the evening)

    Well. Car is on the way to the port. Nice to know it exists. Also more annoying knowing it's out there and I can't drive it!

    Went to dealers on the way home from work, car will be available to pick up from this Thursday!

    Considering it was a b/w 22, I.e last week, pretty quick delivery.

    Going to pick it up Saturday morning as i want the full new car experience, rather than just picking it up on the way home from work.

    Mine is at Grimsby as well. Just for info, the cars can only stay at docks for three days, otherwise the company gets fined. So either there has to be a very good reason for them to stay or the cars will be moving very soon. Sorry to hear that Phil, seems bad as we all have the same BW

    That's good news, so hopefully picking up soon.

    Don't understand that how cars with supposed same b/w can actually be delivered 3 - 4 weeks apart??

    My dealers Hull Audi, so actually one of the closest dealerships to Grimsby; have been offered pick up of Thursday pm or Saturday am, can't decide; think I'm going with Saturday to try and enjoy the experience more!

    Phil, don't know how long you've been waiting, but I've been waiting 5 months since order, with my order even lost at one stage, so I know how you feel! Hopefully yours will come through quicker than you were expecting, apparently mine was only in Emden for 4 days, if that's any help?

    Many thanks for the supportive messages.
    I ordered week 16, so not too bad...
    I always want things yesterday, so the number of hours of life I have "wished away" waiting for something to come is really stupid... A bit like being a a football match and being two one up and wishing and wishing the minutes to go so the ref will blow!!!
    Fingers crossed that mine will come earlier,,,, if is does, it makes you wonder about their logistics systems, because they know how many cars they have, how many ships, many days in advance.....etc....

    Its Here!!!!
    Was supposed to be built this week BW23 obviously came forward, last email update from dealer early last week (27th)said no change? So if that correct must have been built later last week. Dealer said he was a bit shocked this morning when it arrived, mind you not got far from boat to dealer!
    Going in later to have a look and sort finance paperwork out and they said will have it ready for me to pick up on Tuesday:racer:, happy days :jump:

    What ever you do don't let them clean it!! After experiencing the swirl mark mess on my pick up and battle to get them to agree to pay towards fixing it I will NEVER let them clean/PDI or breathe near the paintwork of my car again!

    Congrats on the car :)

    Dealer rang me earlier this afternoon to tell me that my BW24 S3 had just been built, and that he'd call me next week at every stage of the shipping progress. (I read that as at every status change). He's estimating 3 weeks, which is interesting as it will be a month ahead of schedule and just as we're off on holiday :ermm:

    Fab, wishing the weekend away, I bet!

    From the premier league side of the mud flats, pick up tomorrow morning at 9am, sleepless night no doubt, pictures will follow.

    Exciting times for all.

    What about a meet up for all of us "northern folk"?

    Sending a quick e-mail to say, sorry no news yet, or your car is scheduled to be transported from Grimsby to the Dealership on ?? day and we will have it ready for you on ?? day, takes no time at all..
    Do they do it without prompting??
    You know the answer

    Offloaded from Ship Thursday 5th June.
    Transport order now raised Monday June 9th. Who raises this? Is it the dealership or is it the Transport company who do this? Car expected in Manchester Friday/Saturday and then the lengthy thorough pre-delivery inspection and then I receive it gratefully some time...
    There is so so much room for improvement in this whole supply chain.

    Not long now Phil. I got my first update today from my dealer - it's being built BW29 i.e. 14 July. So late August is my best guess for delivery.
