    sweet! Mine is supposed to arrive around that time as well, but the salesguy went on his holidays before giving me a confirmed build/delivery date. If you dont mind, when did you place your order?

    hey,

    i ordered a white one, with the black grille etc.... not sure why i went for white, i usually stick with black... the demo i took out was white & i thought it leant itself quite well to the car..

    ordered it about a month ago, was going to wait for the 08 but have an 's3' plate anyway so decided to skip that & just get the thing!... it's been a while since my last proper toy (mk4 r32) so can't wait to get it on the back roads!! goodbye diesel, hello turbo! ;o)

    cheers

    Hi mate, welcome

    This is a great forum so you are in the right place, and everyone seems to be very friendly and informative!

    I have mine coming for March 08, build week 8 at the moment, but hope that will come forward, wanted to wait for the 08 plate really cos of re-sale.

    Passed Macclesfield Audi on Sat, they have a white one in the showroom, looks stunning, but I wouldn't have the balls to do it I don't think, so gone for the safe option (phantom Black)

    Cheers:icon_thumright:

    hey all, thanks for the welcomes! quick check in from the snow before braving the freezing cold for some new years celebrations swiss style!

    "but I wouldn't have the balls to do it I don't think" ....balls are required, though its a lot easier when the company's footing the bill! ;o)

    ....saw the bloody orange one again today... waiting really is sh*%!!.....

    happy new year & all that!

    cheers

    Didnt want to start a new thread, but I need to rant.

    >: ( Just called my sales guy, and he confirmed wk4 build and mid feb delivery.
    I'm le pissed...he initially promised mid january delivery, then while finalising the paperwork, he wrote late january, saying it's just a buffer. This made me suspicious, but didnt bother pursuing. There's no way to expedite the order now since it has been confirmed by the factory.

    Cause of delay was apparently my choice of color?? How difficult could it be if I choose a color from the A3 range!! (which is not available to the S3)

    :keule:It'd be low for me to ask for more discount now since the papers are signed, but do you guys think I can get a free audi bear and a full tank of gas?

    Yes, thats what I thought, just hoping they bring the build week forward, will be getting onto the dealer this week to check!

    If its a week or two over its not the end of the world tho, I've waited this long!

    Think it will be worth the wait in the end :hubbahubba:

    Rick

    Build week 48+ = Aux in - Confirmation from local dealer.

    'Once again you are quite correct Your A3 will come with the Aux-In Connection.'
    Congratulations on the (new) contract) TT is 05 2008 build week and will also have it.

    Cheers
