Did everyone wait the quoted time for delivery?

    Particularly A3 2.0TDI 170 Quattro S-Line owners.

    I placed my order 2 days ago and have been quoted a mid March delivery date :(

    I know others have been given a date far in the future, but do they ever get delivered early?

    Maybe it's the extras I've requested that's pushing the date:
    Cruise Control
    Centre Armrest
    Heated Seats
    Bose
    GSM Phone prep
    Parking Sensors
    Rear Mats
    Electric Lumbar Support
    Multi-Functions Steering Wheel
    Light and Rain Sensor Pack
    Metallic Paint

    Can anyone comment?

    Cheers

    The options you have ordered should not make any difference to the delivery date as each car is made to order and the production line makes all sorts of different models with both country specific and customer selected option one after the other on the line.

    I ordered my 2.0TDI-170 SE S-tronic on 6 December 2006 and was given a mid February delivery date and the car arrived at the dealers on 12 February 2007 and I took delivery on 1 March 2007. Mine had quite a number of options as well including electric operation on the driver's seat, which is not a common extra.

    That's just not fair :). Hopefully mine will be in the UK next week with any luck.

    Mine was ordered first week of September (after cancelling first order due to a delivery time of mid December!) and I collect it next Wednesday. To say I'm getting excited would be an understatement......

    Options make no difference to your order. I have seen the A3 produced in Ingolstadt and almost every car on the line appeared to be different, the data block place on the shell informs the fitters as the car passes along the line. The parts arrive as required for the orders.

    BTW a good day out if you are in the area around Munich to visit the factory and take the English language tour of the factory.

    Yeah tell me about it... I wouldnt mind but it's only a special edition and the only extras I've got is aluminium trim and pearl paint...:motz: Nearly cancelled half way but thought that I'd regret not sticking with the car that I originally wanted...


    Oh well 3 days to go!! :hubbahubba:
