    Thanks for the message and PM Dave. The only thing waiting until 1 March means for me is a 3 week extra wait and a saving of circa £800.

    Just got back from signing all my finance docs and all that, car was in the prep garage so didnt get too see it although the sales manager complemented me on the spec and said it looks great. Feel guilty for all the people who had build week 8 and 7 and there cars are sat in emde or a uk port, apparently i got incredibly lucky.

    Anyone ordered an Estoril Blue S3 at Bexley Audi? Went there yesterday to discuss my A3 and it looked very nice indeed!

    Hello all

    I will update on the invoice issue later, but in the meantime what is the form I should ask the sales advisor to check to confirm no damage has occurred when the dealer took delivery of the vehicle.

    Thanks

    You just have to ask. As far as I know, if you ask, they have to tell you.

    Just nipped into the dealers to sign finance and plate retention docs............My S3 was there!!!!

    Not quite 1st March, but after all the waiting and thinking it was stuck at port the last few days, its finally nearly there.

    Pickup 4pm on Tuesday. Can't wait.

    Good luck tomorrow everyone, there was a lovely Silver S3 in the showroom ready to go.

    Words cannot describe how jealous I am of you all... Looking to get my a3 on order in the next month for delivery in September! It's going to be a long and painful wait, well worth it no doubt!

    popped in to Maidstone Audi this afternoon to do the paperwork etc. Loads of 14 plate cars there waiting for their new owners. Mine was the only once covered at the time but was parked next door to an Estoril 3 door. There was a black S3 SB and a grey one. They were all lined up in order of pick-up (mine in the front row). Looks like they are going to be a tad busy tomorrow!

    We'll, after eating my desk in frustration (reference to earlier post)I called my dealer, left a message. A little later I received an emailed film clip of my car in full factory protective dress and going into prep. After a tense week they pulled it off and like many on this thread I can now get just a tiny bit excited about picking my A3 up at 08:00 tomorrow. I'm off down the pub for dinner with friends and the wife, and a pint of coke. Enjoy your new cars everyone and just hang in there if your still patiently waiting. Your day will come soon enough.

    Wow, good going you two.

    Not many hours for me to go now. Just was lying in bed wide awake so have given up trying to sleep and got up and made myself a cuppa.
