    When was it that you ordered it in the end? It was a company car wasn't it?

    eek!! The lease company did say that was only a guide date :mad: hopefully it will be that date and not later and also when they deliver it i hope that it comes on a transporter and not driven by some a-hole who will thrash it

    I'm going on holiday the week after so I hope it comes in time! Will be a nice start to the holiday and as I'll be doing around a 1000 miles and my fuel's paid by the company I'll be very unhappy if it's not here!

    I have ordered an A3 as a company car and I was originally told 29th April for delivery. This has now changed to 16th April.
    So don't despair, yours may be delivered sooner as well :)

    I was originally told the beginning of week 12, but I haven't heard anything at all! I phoned to ask at the end of week 9 and was told it was made and just needed to be shipped over, surely that can't take too long?!

    Glad to hear that someone has been given a slightly earlier date from the original!

    I ordered mine the following week so maybe it's come in and they haven't let me know yet... What week was your build scheduled for originally? Mine was wk 9 and I canlled at the end and they said the car was built so maybe I'll get lucky!

    ^ I will definately second that. 3 months for something I was already dying for when I actually ordered it is enough to drive me crazy!

    Sarah, I have to admit that I was hoping for the dry weather to have rolled in by the time I picked it up. It's been way too nice up here recently so I just know there will be major rain and/or snow as soon as I pick up the new car... :eiertritt:

    How else would they deliver it? Or am I just being a bit special? Or do you mean instead of going to collect it?

    On a slightly different note, does anyone know how long the PDI takes?
    Mine is to be delivered to the dealer on 16th April, but I don't have a date when it will be delivered to me.

    I don't know what build week my car was but was given the 22/03/10 as the date it would be ready when I ordered it. Spoke to the dealer last Friday and the car had arrived that day! I would have thought your car should'nt be far behind mine?

    I'm not sure how long a PDI takes? I didn't want to collect my car until Monday anyway. Sorry can't be of anymore help, I'm not sure what a PDI consists of?

    Think that I'll call tomorrow and see if the car has arrived and if it has try to arrange a collection date. Getting soooooo excited now! :yahoo:

    Good luck for tomorrow mate.

    I had the option for my car to be delivered but said I would collect it. My reason being that there have been some horror stories on here with people finding major faults with their new cars. I thought going to collect it would enable me to have a GOOD look over the car for faults before accepting it. I'm sure it will be fine.....but hey you never know!

    God I'm looking forward to Monday!

    Ah, I hadn't heard of these horror stories... But I was planning on picking it up to have a look anyway since I just thought that seemed like the best option.

    Bet you can't wait, you'll have to get some pictures up first thing Monday morning! :)

    Thanks for the good luck, I hope it pays off!

    Oh yes, I've seen the button now! Maybe I should have just looked a bit harder!

    I'm up in Aberdeen, so just the dealer here that I'm getting it from...

    Have my chip ordered and S3 brakes bought so now just need the car! lol. Pics will be up as soon as I collect, trust me!

    My 2.0 Tdi Sport was ordered on the 11th Dec and I've been told by the lease company it should arrive at the dealers on the 21st April. It's not a BE like alot of you are waiting on, but I'm still getting vvvvvery impatient.
    I think because Audi introduced the Sport trim as a free upgrade from SE on the 2.0Tdi on 01/12/09, it became a popular choice.

    That really doesn't surprise me. I almost went for that option but decided that if I was going to spend the money I might as well splash out. Most people are more sensible than me when it comes to these things though! lol. And I think the S-Line looks just a little bit more purposeful... :ninja:

    If I had been buying myself, I completely agree. Company car though and i had enough trouble explaining to the fleet department that upgrading from the SE on my vehicle list wouldn't cost them any more.......:tocktock: If I had started talking about S-Lines, they would have had a fit.

    Just spoken to a friend of mine who went to his local dealers at the weekend and they told him if he ordered a BE now and it couldn't be supplied from stock (depending on options) it would be SEPTEMBER delivery!!!! :ohmy: Hope that doesn't mean mine's going to be another 4 months

    I can imagine how hard it was convincing them about a free upgrade, let alone getting even more money out of them for an S-Line. Might as well ask for an RS6 instead...

    I just told our HR manager (who looks after the company cars) it's just a "black" a3 which comes with a few extras :laugh:
