Hi all, I was wondering how long did you all wait to receive your A3's after laying down the order? One thing to mention before telling you "my story": Car was purchased as an import (i payed no taxes on it) IF this makes any difference. My concern is due to the "news" i just received last week, after basically doing endless calls to contact my dealer, asking when & why my car has not yet arrived... I ordered the car on the 15th of May 2006, we agreed (by contract) on a delivery time of "aprox. 8 weeks". I knew this could possibly go off by a week or two. YET now I am looking at a whole 12 (earliest and pretty impossible)-16 weeks delivery time! I am very unsatisfied of the whole situation to say the least. Firstly, because I've been reading around in the forums to see that some people got dates and info on their cars build date, etc.... My useless dealer hasn't even been able to tell me up to today (week 9) if my car has been built. Also after 2 weeks of making the order, i regretted not getting the xenon plus, asked if it was still possibly to make this change and add it in. He said; "It wasn't possible since the car was in already in the production line". I figured this meant the car would be built really soon, so i was happy hearing that and didn't bother about the xenon. So to top things off, i sold my current car last week and have till the end of this month to give it to the new owner. I told my dealer this situation and he offered me a VW POLO (I'm buying an audi why do i get a small-shitty POLO?), "until" i got the car. Yet at the same time said I could only be able to keep that car for short term (WTF?!). I've gone so far as to thinking of pulling out of the whole deal. This has just been too much, the whole way i was treated - left with no info whatsoever - having to FIND my dealer to even get an answer, now i get a shitty car offered and only for a short term. Is this the normal procedure when buying a NEW "upper-class" car, do i have my expectations set to high, whats the scoop on this???
