Does this resemble an order number that I can use to track my build.........

28728477

I ordered the car on the 10th Jan, but the number still isn’t been recognised on the web site.

I’m having the same issue, it’s a known fault apparently

Tracker now says ARRIVED.

Seems very much an anti climax as I have waited so long since May for a Sept 1st delivery 68 and now I'm not sure whether to push hard for a 19 plate and wait another 4 weeks. Sad really.

Dealer. It says contact dealer to make collection plans. Code 70.
That was crazy quick, didn't yours land on Wednesday like mine? Audi asked me if I wanted to hold off and wait for the 19 plate to be registered instead of the 68, I said no thank you. Different plate same car and more waiting?? I'm ok thanks lol but hey each to their own :)

My dates were affected by a 3 week shut down over Christmas but it seems to have straight to 70 in quick time. I'll ring dealer tomorrow and update.

Mine arrived safely this morning but is absolutely filthy! Looking forward to giving it a good clean next week when the weather gets better

Only thing wrong is that the ten digit code on the keyfob to connect the myaudi app to the car is missing so no way to remote manage the car. Emailed the lease company so hopefully they can arrange another one.

I've got the 35 black edition with tech pack in manual. Does anyone know if this has the sports display? I can't seem to find it but like the idea of boost gauge and g meter.

Also noticed a green icon pop up on the speedomospe with a foot on a pedal. Need to read the manual to understand what all this stuff means.

I bet most people know what a boost gauge is (so no ebay link needed) but no one knows what a speedomospe is. Couldn't even find one on Amazon. Is it like a fast wasp or mosquito? And do they really have feet? :chuncky:

I have also noticed the green foot on a pedal icon....

The sat nav detects upcoming junctions, roundabouts and speed limit decreases. I think it's called "predictive efficiency" and is a recommendation to coast, in order to save fuel.
As usual with Audi / tech it is a bit random; there is a long downhill near me where it coasts sometimes but not others.

You've waited forever.
February's a short month.
Wait and register it on a '19 plate.
Better price come resale time, and feelgood factor of a proper "new" plate, rather than it feeling instantly "old" on your '68 plate as you see the new '19 plates driving around in a couple of weeks!
Win-win.:icon thumright:

What is this connect to the myaudi app? Is this for every car?

You can connect the myaudi app to the car which enables remote management of the car. You can see it's current location and do other things. Not sure what as I can't get it working :)

My friend had his Audi A5 stolen and he found where it was parked using the app and recovered it himself.

You can unlock and lock the doors, shows you your location and the cars location, when your service is due and if your doors and windows are open, that's about it

Shame we don’t get remote start like the US. Being able to warm the car up in the morning before going out would be amazing!

I found a plastyc strip in my document folder with the last 6 digits of the VIN on it. It also has a scratch off strip. Is this the code? I don't want to scratch it off if I am not supposed to.

Thanks

Yeah agreed, my brother can turn his heaters on without starting the engine which is far better than what we can do

Can't happen in the UK currently because the law states so. There might be changes to the legislation in the future though to allow for self parking cars...

That is exactly where mine was. I had an email back from the lease company telling me this is where it was. I hadn't noticed it on mine. Since entering it into the MMI i've noticed that maps now shows as online and has a google logo in the corner where as before it didn't. I still can't get the google earth maps on but sure its a setting away somewhere.

You need to change the ‘map display’ to satellite

I've done that but nothing happened. I've read elsewhere on the forum that changing the setting can be a bit hit and miss and it'll eventually apply.

Make sure you set it on the main MMI screen and not purely through the VC as well. I found that sometimes you have to do that for it to change the settings for some reason.

I guess you've setup your MyAudi connect account? Both online through a web browser and through the car's MMI?

I've signed my docs and collecting on Thurs all being well.

No faffing about with moving the deposit money around.... I'm just paying what was agreed and the dealership will pay the rest and claim it back off Audi.

5 day free insurance is standard... even for leasing.

Appreciate it... I’ll maybe go to Audi UK direct to see if I can get some leverage on my dealer

Good luck with that, daughter had a major brake fail on her new S3, she could have died that night if she had been travelling any faster.
We spent 6 months speaking with Audi HQ in Milton Keynes, they even sent a Master Technician all the way to Scotland to fix the issue but he was brainless, and did not have a clue, worst bit is he was only interested in protecting Audi.
Considering what happened to her car and the potential consequences Audi were NOT interested.
Following some serious fault finding by our local Audi dealer they condemned the car and not fit to drive until fault was found. We never drove the car again, car was then transported to Milton Keynes for investigation and believe it or not they sold it on and is back on the road.
Some poor soul is driving around in a potential death trap.

The staff in Milton Keynes are CLUELESS and not interested, we went as far as we could but got nowhere with them.
Luckily our local dealer found us a new S3 that had just come off the boat from Germany and got it re-routed to our dealer in Scotland.

Good luck with Audi Milton Keynes staff, they employ robots who read everything from a crib sheet.
