sorry to resurrect. I had my S3 saloon delivered yesterday - 230 mile at delivery (Brighton to Sheffield - hmmm....). Drove it 40 miles into Nottingham. Today on driving back to Sheffield through Nottingham I came to a set of lights. Stop/Start turned the engine off as it had been doing. Then it...
Mine's confirmed delivery for next Wednesday.
Here's the thing; it's a lease. The supplying dealer is Brighton. I'm in Sheffield. I have little/no issue
with them driving it up - I'll ask them not to take it to the car wash when they get here (which is what
they usually do. The problem is...
Dunno what happened with my SB order. What I do know is that it's 42degrees in Turkey, the pool is refreshing, the beer is chilled and my S3 saloon will be delivered to me (at home, it's a lease) on 2nd September. And I have the reg number.
This is what happened with my SB order. Granted it was a lease via a broker but Audi UK told me directly that there are 'lengthy delays'.
Ultimately I couldn't wait until 'late jan/early feb' (they gave me build week 50) for a car I ordered in March 2015. Dropped on with a well spec'd saloon...
Having accepted a different vehicle due to the order **** up/backlog on my sepang SB, my Glacier white saloon is confirmed.
I've got most of what I'd spec'd on the SB plus plenty more such as privacy glass and B&O.
The bits i hadn't spec'd and am unsure on are:
* Mag ride - what does it give...
Well, it doesn't show up on my audi but i figure that's because it's a lease?
A call to Audi customer service has confirmed that:
1. It's from Brighton Audi
2. It's 'at Emden' ????
3. It has B&O which I was unaware of - all the other options were as described to me. Nice Brucey bonus!
the saloon will cost me £50 pcm more than my ordered SB. In the end I was seduced by the saloon - i've yet to see one on the road
I've also opted for full maintenance for £36 per month. Over 35 months that's £1260. It (appears!) to cover all servicing AND TYRES.
I reckon that the...
So, decision made. Swapped to the saloon. Delivery between 25-28 August - going on a private plate so no issue with the date.
Only slight concern is as I didn't order it, the spec might end up different from what's listed.
Audi have admitted its an all round balls up. But in the next breath have shrugged their shoulders and said there's nothing they can do. They told me today week 49 build, though it still isn't even on myaudi.
Three options still exist:
1. They agree to a short term (5-6 months) demo for me...
Thanks folks. Originally ordered the hatch as that is my default setting. I probably didn't consider the saloon because it was more money. I didn't realise about mag ride - does it make a big difference?
I agree about the saloon spec - it looks good. In pictures the colour looks good when clean...
I have an S3 Sportback lease on order which has been massively delayed (ordered March, due for delivery in jan16 - see other thread). Spec is:
Front & rear park
Interior light pack
SD sat nav
I can swap into a 'it's built and on the way to the dealer' ...
Well, still nowt on myaudi but I have a provisional build week of................week 50. Ordered March. Delivered January. Utter toss from Audi.
Possible switch to a saloon which will be here much sooner. Problems:
1. It's white
2. It's 550 per month. I can get into an RS3 in Nardo with my...
