    It's a busy week for Audi because mine is also a week 4 built.

    All depends on how they started counting weeks this year. Normally the first week corresponds to the first day of the year. This means we are week 5.
    But I assume that Audi starts counting from the first monday of the year /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif
    Can anybody confirm this /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Anyway, I only need to wait 1 week for delivery (I think it's being built in Belgium) and one week for the plates and them I'm going for a drive to ... I don't know where .. and I don't care... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif

    Will any of you guys run them in? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/dancing.gif I usually start off at around 3000 rpm incresing it after 500 miles until its flat at around 1000 miles. I will have the oil and filter changed at 1000 miles. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/angel.gif

    eeef, so does that mean then:

    week 7 build : 7th feb - 13th feb
    week 8 build : 14th feb - 20th feb

    I take it that that is the build date in the factory in Germany.

    Does anyone know how long the cars take to get to these shores?
     
  11. dealers 1 1/2 weeks after the buid week, i think it depends on timing.

    Dealer has said mine will take 3 to four weeks? Surely not that long?

    Mine completed its build last Friday, was on the boat by Tuesday and at the dealers yesterday (Friday). So in all, 1 week from completion of build to dealer!
     
  15. dealers on Thursday and was having the body kit put on today. I get a call from them saying that during its time in the oven, the front skirt warped. They reckon they can still force it into position, but would i like to wait while they order another one which will be in Thursday? So looks like i may get the car Friday if all goes well.

    I have decided that i'm never going to get this car.

    I have been waiting over 4 months now. I'm about to have a nervous breakdown. Its worse than waiting for your first child.

    No wonder i drink!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Leicester Audi saleman: His name is Kam Kotadia. Seems like a very nice man.

    The problem with the insurance is that I need to keep my policy continuous in order to get my NCD. But I need the new car insured 2 days before I get it, so I cannot drive my current car after I've swapped the insurance to the new one.

    Thus I had to arrange a 3 day policy for the new car which runs out on the day of delivery, then my main policy takes over. I then need a 3rd four day policy for my current car which will start when the new car is delivered and take me up to next saturday when I sell it. phew!
     
  17. Blimey! That is a hassle! Wouldn't they swap your policy to the new car and then put your old car down as a temporary additional vehicle. That's what mine do (for free as well but that is through a broker).

    I'm getting mine through Danny (the fat bloke with glasses). He won't mind me saying that as I've known him years!
