    Hi All, I have just joined and have been reading through the posts all morning. Ordered my A3 end of June and have not received a build date yet.

    Was really happy to see this forum, a bit disappointed that I didn't come across this before I ordered my car! :(

    This is the first time I have purchased a brand new car and on my own as well, being a female I found the experience quite daunting, however I stuck to my guns and didn't mention my budget until they gave prices within my options.

    I didn't really think I could try and bargain for some freebies when going direct to Audi, obviously a naive mistake but lesson learnt! Im thinking of upgrading my speakers to the Audi sound system but before I do I wanted some advise on the servicing, not exactly sure what Audi offer and when I do discuss it with them should I try and get a discount on it or is it too late to even try?

    :)

    Welcome nazia, I too am a first time Audi buyer and didn't find this site until after placing my order.
    There are threads on this forum about negotiating deals both pre and post order, (RossR I think).
    I have found there is a wealth of experience on this forum and everyone is enthusiastic and helpful.
    What type of A3 have you ordered, and have you added any options?

    Hello Nazia and welcome :)

    I did the same as you and placed my order then found this site, also my first brand new car, got a bit of a discount but not the £####'s that some guys on here managed to get. But hey I'm still happy, it's not all about getting the cheapest deal but getting the car you really want ;)

    It took my dealer 3 weeks to get me a build week, may be worth giving them a call.

    Everyone is really friendly on here and you will find it a great place to spend your time waiting for your new toy :)

    Thanks Mark, I will definitely check out the threads for that. Looking at all the different forums out there this one did come across to be the most useful.
    I have gone for the Sportback S Line 2.0 and have a few of the extras, Comfort Package, SD based Sat Nav, Rear parking sensors and the advance key.

    Thanks 97Catalunya :) I agree it is definitely about getting the car you want. I have called my dealer and still no update, but expected early October so a long wait.

    Thats good to hear, hopefully my time here will help me get through the waiting period. :)

    You might get lucky with the build date. Ordered my SB at the start of June, and was told late October estimate.

    Still not had a build date so was going to call next week for an update and got a call yesterday saying it would be with the dealer next week and I can pick it up 1/9 on the new reg if I want :D

    Hi Nazia welcome- re service plan,it's not to late to try and get this free, I managed it just say you didn't negotiate price of car down,you've overlooked serv plan and wonderd if they could add it as a good will gesture-also mention sound system they might cut a deal with you, Good luck.
