After what feels like an eternity, my car has finally shifted on the tracker! Moved to preparation this morning woohoo.
scheduled to be built WC 3rd April (BW14)

Hopeful of mid-May delivery
Nice one! My S4 has left the factory today!

:) Mine just went to QC the day after it was supposed to start being build. How long did yours stay in QC before transit?

Mine went to QC on 3rd even though it wasn’t due to be built until the following week.
I don’t want to get my hopes up as the tracker has been a week ahead compared to dealer updates.
This morning the tracker say is arrived in the UK…I’ve already got a call in to the dealers!

Sorry @QTNC
just realised that in my excitement I didn’t answer your question!
5 days after QC the status changed to 'Your Audi has left Ingolstadt'

Nearly here then. Great news.

15 days, that's a long wait, I got my dealer to hurry things along at the port. Mine was on a transporter within 48hrs of arrival. Do they have a backlog?

Fingers crossed it's not 15 days.

Yeah that's a worst case scenario that I reckon. Mine was 48hrs too.

No news, looks like it's stuck at Grimsby stinking of fish lol. Been there since 20th, trackers & dealers system still shows status 40.

Lol! Hopefully not too long now! I'm quite surprised mine has been status 39 for as long as it has, since it only takes a day for the ship to crossover!

Uhh.. dealer has been on to the transport company today, car won't be arriving until Friday, meaning he can't get it PDI until Tuesday at the earliest. I know it's not that long, but it would've been nice to have the car for the long weekend to get use to it.

I'd be extremely impatient knowing it was only a week away!

Undecided if it's a good thing being able to track the order or not, only feeds my impatience. Haven't even got my codes to start tracking either... Haha.

Ha ha I kicked off earlier telling them to move heaven & high water so I could collect on Saturday, but no dice. To be fair I know my dealer very well, and if he could, he would. Oh and I'm decided, preferred when I ordered without the tracker! Like watching paint dry

I bet, I think I might be pulling my hair out by the time September rolls around.

Well what a day!
Dealer called to say car arrived at the PDI centre this morning and they thought they would go and collect it and do the PDI at the dealers to speed things along. Been at the dealers this evening and signed all the paperwork so now I'm collecting tomorow morning! Best thing is they wanted to get the car sale included in the April figures so have sweetened the deal after originally saying they couldn't get it processed untill Tuesday as the PDI centre would be closed.
Only managed a quick pic as it was going straight in the workshop.
Car is unwashed as requested.

Just the one pic unfortunately, he was literally trying to drive into the workshop as I was walking behind lol.

Haha. No worries, I was just hoping to see what it looked like with the black pack in Daytona.

Random question because I never looked when I test drive the S4... Are the reversing lights LED I presume?
