    What freebies do you expect to get on collection day or what did you get. Were these items that you requested as part of the deal if so were they actually listed on your order form?

    I will be collecting my 8V on Friday and personally I don't expect anything, except perhaps my new car:)

    I received a boot-liner (£170 in brochure), 2 x Audi Keyrings (4 ring type), Full tank of fuel instead of half, red and green leads and the ashtray/cup (as ordered the non-smokers pack).

    Didn't ask for anything other than the ashtray/cup as useful for change etc and also got a good deal on GAP whilst signing paperwork.

    With the S3 I got a teddy, a key ring, both iPod cables, boot liner, boot net.
    Since then I have had a set of number plates and a new iPod cable free from the salesman.

    With the wife's Q5 we got another bigger teddy, key ring, boot liner, roof bars.

    I just picked mine up today - Got a couple of dealer key rings, and got them to swap out the blue AMI cable for the red one. Also got an Audi cargo net for the boot but not sure if thats a standard thing.

    Just trying to get the SD card to display my album art :)

    You will be surprised what they give you - ask for the boot liner £170 as most people seem to have got one

    Picking my Audi up on Monday.

    All I've been told I'll be getting is a couple of cables for my phone (didn't ask for them, dealer just said I'd need them).

    Do you usually get given other stuff? I'm not massively fussed to be honest, a key ring would be nice. Just curious as to whether I'll get a goody bag :)

    Didn't ask for anything other than the ashtray/cup (took it out of a RS Q3 in showroom) as ordered the non-smokers pack and thought it would be useful to carry loose change, but my dealer said they had a cupboard full of freebies that clients can choose from.

    He had already put the boot-liner (£170) in the car along with the Audi Keyrings (4 ring type) and a full tank of fuel (instead of half) so wasn't going to ask for anything else as was pleased with that.

    Cool.

    Yeah I'm unlikely to ask for anything to be honest, so I'll probably be relying on them chucking stuff in off their own back :)

    As long as I get the AMI cables I'll be happy, I might ask for a full tank of fuel.

    I asked for prices of boot liner and rubber mats a few days before colection. Salesman gave me them, a key ring and a couple of AMI cables for free on the day.

    I received got a bottle of Champagne, 2x keyrings, and an set of registration plates for my new personal plate.

    Couldn't really ask for anything more as got a large discount off the car and a factory order delivered within 9 weeks.

    Service was excellent from Parklands Audi. Then just had the 2 hour drive back to London to enjoy!

    Looking at the accessories guide... the 3 door boot liner is £42 and the sport back is £170?! How is one 4 times the price of the other? Surely they are pretty similar...

    I've ordered the non-smoking pack for my car so does anyone know if I will get a cup with it (I have seen a few cars on this website with the cup). I know it sounds trivial but I would like one but fairly sure Audi will charge a princely sum for it!

    Ask them not to wash it and save yourself the cost of the local Detailer fixing the swirls? :)

    I initially went with the Non-smoking Pack, but heard the brushed chrome topped ashtray thing might not be included. I rang the dealer to check and they confirmed it wouldn't, but I could order one for £60 instead! So, I cancelled the Non-smoking pack and ordered a couple of these instead...

    Hope this helps.

    I'm a company car boy tho, so don't think they're too into lavishing us with freebies vs a personal sale somehow...

    I wonder if my dealer will swap my 1.4 cod engine for a s3 powerplant haha! Looks like it's a bit of a lottery with the cup then!

    I think any freebie is a lottery as previously advised I got the £170 boot liner, ashtray/cup, 2 x Keyrings (4ring type), green and red leads and a full tank of fuel.

    I know plenty of people who have had nothing.

    Also can boil down to private buyer or company car.

    I did say at the time he could keep the cup and I would have the RS Q3.

    I received no freebies on my previous two audi's and i am a private buyer - although they were bought from the same group. I always have had freebies from my local dealer though.
