    Email from the dealer today, arrival of my car at the dealership is imminent, I actually think it may of arrived late this afternoon as a transporter full of Audi's was heading towards the dealers as i came out of my local Tesco, I did spot what looked very much like a Daytona Grey Sportback on there. If it was mine then I may get it a bit sooner, otherwise if not i will take delivery early next week.

    Getting excited now !!!

    Well Mark, I remember when I first joined the forum, we both ordered at the same time, and here you are ready for collection ( of another D***** Grey car!)....... Sorry cannot complete the D word anymore.
    Im sure you are getting excited, got your ceck list? I'm sure Sandra is sorting out the countdown music, she's a busy girl at the moment.
    moonlight and SJW still getting to grips with their new motors...... When will it all end?

    cheers Mark, I'll say it for you "Daytona" lol. I did consider Scuba my self, but as my last Audi was Sprint Blue I decided on the Grey (Daytona). Really looking forward to the big day now.

    Looking forward to Sandra's playlist, something original I hope. x

    When are you expecting yours ??

    Just curious, where did you get your boot liner from, and how much was it? I've seen prices ranging from £40 to £90!

    Cheers,

    Karl.

    I collected mine last Wed and had to wait a further 30-40 minutes for the salesman to turn up...it was under a cover whilst I impatiently circled it over and over again....was almost too much for me!

    Isn't that stalking, I'd have had to rip the cover off. I will probably go and see the car when it gets delivered, make sure it's in one piece.

    Glad your enjoying the COD.

    Just checking in here for the new addition to the grin club, no pics yet, lol. Im already with my music, even though i did post at midnight, i have another tune all ready. He is probably pacing round his car at audi dealers. It seems like yesterday that you collected yours moonlight. Im sure you still got the grin though. :) x

    Cheshire Cat that has the cream!

    Even the weather did not dampen the moment! Delivered with 10 miles on the clock, twenty minutes late, longest 20 mins of my life!
    Pics to follow....... Going back out now to have a play!

    Worth the wait guys & dolls.

    And Daytona...... What a fantastic colour, looks sweet as a nut ;-))

    Just drove past the dealers, they were closed but thought I would have a nose around. Sat in the compound with all its stickers still on was my car, at last. Must of been delivered today, all looks to be in one piece from what I could see. Should here from the salesman tomorrow so will pop down and arrange collection etc.

    Mmmm wonder how long it will take them to turn it around.
