    They'll be built from week 22.

    Boy am I glad they fecked up my order (missed quattro and parking sensors) !!!

    The changes are quite a bit more than I expected :

    Automatic stop/start (2.0TDI and 2.0TFSI) - reduces emissions by a few g and decreases fuel comsumption by few mpg
    Energy recuperation from braking
    Price increase : +2.1% (only £25 for S4 Avant and £0 for S4 saloon)
    Servotronic (looks like it's now on all models)
    Tow bar prep on all models
    Rear LED lights [​IMG] (on S-lines and those ordering adaptive front lights)
    ESP with limited slip diff - FWD models
    New mirror design (hopefully they're quieter) [​IMG]

    Then there's some options changes :
    new cloth replacing old
    quattro sport differential now on 3.0TDIq and 3.2FSIq
    BT phone - i.e. hands free (without the roof aerial etc) for £100
    MMI 3G at the same price as the old one [​IMG]
    Leather package - includes arm rests on doors.
    Black styling package (I guess you can lose the chrome?)
    Cinnamon leather replaces Mustang brown
    High beam assist available also for Halogens

    I should have the order for my replacement car in on Monday with delivery around mid June I guess. :yahoo:

    p.s. The new brochure is available on the Audi site.

    Do you have the option of switching off the stop/start function as I reckon that would drive me to distraction!

    TBH that is one thing that I'm pondering. However I had similar concerns about the electronic handbrake and the Hill Assist and they work literally perfectly. They say the engine will be running before you need it so fingers crossed it will be.

    I agree. My car was delivered and I know I'd feel pi55ed if I was keeping the car. Fortunately for me they fecked it up but I can really relate to how you feel :crying:

    Another thing, they claim for an increase of 2% on the A4.
    But is it really a 2% of price increase ?

    Meaning, on the MY 2009 Servotronic is an optional, if you order a MY 2009 with standard equipment plus servotronic, the difference for the MY 2010 is less than 2% . . .

    The problem is that the MY 2010 have more than the Servotronic and for less than 2% . . .

    I think that Audi should take some care to the way they launch these silent restylings . . . :puke:

    It's a similar thing with the 3G MMI. You now get full voice control which previously was about £300.

    Good for buyers but not for current owners.
