    I went to Audi Northampton to pick my car up after it had some warranty work done and saw a couple picking up a nice White TTS '60 plate, stunning.

    I should of.... but apparently giving Audi 3.5 months notice isn't enough! It's being built next week so should have it by the end of the month. The dealer has told me he will rush it through when it lands in the UK however I think a lot of his customers are in the same boat. The wait continues...

    Not an Audi but made me laugh anyway! Saw a 60 plate Scirocco yesterday at a petrol station and the elderly lady drove it straight over a kerb - what a waste of a new car!

    Came home tonight to find a neighbour has 60 plate A3 TDI sat on his drive. Looks kinda odd - didn't recognise it as being new at first.

    That was probably me in the S3 mate was it white and reg J9 ***??? Had it 2 weeks now and reason I did't wait for the 60 plate is because it is leased so future value doesn't really bother me, although when I have the option to buy in 3 years I may be able to get it a bit cheaper as it would have been on 59 plate :yes:

Looked really nice chap was joking that i should try and pull you over to my friend on the phone as i haven't seen the new wheels in the flesh yet. i live in swad.

    Thanks mate I am really pleased with it and the new wheels are nice, still not sure if I prefer the old BE ones but these must be easier to clean! The weird thing is I live in Church Gresley, so basically swad. Come and have a look at the wheels if you want? (PM me)

    Picked mine up on Wednesday. It was kinda eery at the dealers with hardly any new cars going out. Apart from a couple at the dealers the only other 60 I've seen was a Mitsi Lancer.

    Not many were going out of my local dealers either. Apparently the March reg is more popular plus as it shows the year i.e 10 for 2010 which people seem to prefer rather than the 59 or 60 etc in September...

    Wish I had a 60 plate to pick up! The only 60 plates I've seen so far are a few Range Rover Sports and a couple of 5 Series'.

    If anyone is looking for a March reg then they'd better get their orders in now!! I enquired about getting an S3 Sportback last week and was told that I could expect a March delivery. I was also told a guy just ordered a Q5 last week and they don't expect it to come in until May or June!!! Audi really need to get their finger out!

    From what I can establish it is the 1.2 petrol and the 1.6TDi and 2.0TDi (140BHP) that are the single pipe. All others are twin pipes. I have on order a 170BHP Quattro and am now glad I did...

    A woman at our place enquired about the new A1. She was told Audi uk wont even have one to view until March! And if she orders one expect Sept 2011 deilvery at the earliest! WTF!

    The little overpriced thing will fly out of the shrowrooms too, all the anticipation gets some folk all excited!
