    I have Audi Sound ordered , which is good value at 250, but for an extra 500 I can have 750 watts.

    The reason to opt for non smoking is the cigerette lighter socket it not as highly rated as the 12v socket, confirmed in the manual.

    Ok. Fair enough. Deffo worth doing the privacy glass though - I have.

    Have you got the interior light package?

    I have interior lighting pack, I think it's a must.

    I am unsure about privacy glass, just feel like I am ordering something to pass the time.

    What colour have you gone for Donny?

    Hi all, first post here...

    My car is confirmed for BW 37.

    I tried to change specs on the car but dealer says it's no longer possible. Tried to add Audi Sound System and the Flat Bottom Sports Steering Wheel. Coming from an E92 m-sport I thought the steering wheel should be thicker than the standard sports steering wheel.

    Spec is:
    Audi A3 Ambition (Sport)
    1.4 TFSI (COD) 150hp manual
    Scuba Blue
    S-Line External Package
    17” x 7.5J 5-arm kinetic design alloy wheels
    Technology Package Plus (includes: armrest, Bluetooth, xenon plus with rear led lights, MMI radio advance, cruise control)
    Front and Rear parking sensors
    Audi Music Interface
    Rear View Camera
    Folding & heated Mirrors
    Rear seat armrest

    I'm currently down for BW42 but my dealer has hinted that in all probability it will end up coming forward a week or two. Anyone else seeing their (earlier) BW's coming forward in practise?

    I was on BW44 and that has now come down to BW40. The dealer has hinted that it could come forward even more - (but that's probably her just trying to stop me changing the spec ever 5 minutes!!)

    How long before the build date does your order specification lock so that it cannot be changed?

    Just had an update from my dealer build week is now 38 down from 39.

    I am not going to amend spec upwards as have been advised that this will change my build week significantly. According to my sales manger they have just put through an S3 change and the build week got moved back by months, although I do not know what specification was changed.

    I understand that one of the largest Audi groups (Aberdeen) is quoting February 2015 on new S3 orders.

    ^ it does appear from the members on here that most of the S3's are in the Aberdeen area.

    Well, just had word from the dealer that my build week is confirmed, so Wk 37 it is.

    No chance of earlier but at least it can't slip (apparently!)

    It seems like I'm a lucky one...

    Was initially quoted BW44 about a month after order. That went to BW40 shortly after, then a few weeks later... BW37 :)

    Nope, no movement or anything further on my BW38. It probably won't as I have ACC on it.

    Why does having ACC affect build date or not? Do they build them in batches?

    Time to bid farewell to this thread. A few weeks ago advised week 37 build but now ready for pick up first week of September so I suspect it must have been approx. BW 31 - which to be fair is what I was originally given at time of ordering

    Mine is 2nd to last week in Sept (39/40). This link has a BW guide for those that don't know - http://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/bw-41-42-43-44.223660/#post-2239766

    I am thinking to ask about changing the audio, if it affects delivery I won't bother.

    About non-smoking pack, I have done the same, intending to ask for the audi ashtray when collecting, don't they stock them at the dealer?

    Logistics, and supply of parts from Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers.

    And then supply of components into Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers.

    JIT will be working all the way through the supply chain, so a change at the front will impact the supply chain, and availability.

    Another issue I discovered today was the summer break means they are fitting everything into tight schedules for when they return, so everything is systematic hence an option change may affect build date, especially if that option requires one set of wiring or another, it ends up changing when it is done.

    VW made many cuts a while ago in light of the recession, pretty clever predication on their part and saved/earned them a fortune, only bad thing is the increase in lead times for us.

    True. It was a spec-amendable car already bound for the dealership so I guess I was luckier than some. The salesman tells me that a month later he put through another order for a similar S3 SB and it was showing January delivery!
