With the hill hold you won't need to keep your foot on the brake. The car won't creep forward till you accelerate

Do you know if shutting down the factory (I assume the production line itself) affects transport as well? Mine was built this week and I;m wondering if these cars will be destined for transportation just before the holiday?

Transport will continue as it's a good chance for them to clear the decks.

So after much consideration I've now put a deposit down! The S3 just wasn't special enough to order and I've had enough of waiting, didn't want to wait for the facelift.

Been told late November, how true that is I don't know!
Spec I've gone for is
Glacier white
Black styling pack
Privacy glass
Comfort and sound package
Dynamic package
Folding mirrors
Super sport seats with rock grey stitching

I've not ordered yet and I've been advised by my dealer of a 10-12mth waiting list. Has anyone had any hints as to when the facelift is due?

I've been told by my local dealer that you are probably looking at June next year for a car

Yes that's what I was told, and because I'm trading in a TT convertible I should get top dollar for it because of the time of year. still to book an appt to sort this out but the lead time suits me. Hopefully if a facelift is due it will be rolled out to the RS3 before it's built

Ha! Everyone has said that!
Oh and I only specced hill hold as I want the button on the center console! Don't like looking at blank spaces where buttons should be! Makes me sad!

So far so good with delays in delivery......car ordered late June, BW 36 confirmed shortly after with car scheduled for October delivery. Had e-mail from the dealer today saying they are ahead of schedule and could I take the car in September..........erm, let me think?!?!

Guys, I need to sell my 320d MSport touring before the RS3 arrives in Sept/Oct. it's on PCP but will have to VT in Oct to get out of it as settlement is just north of £20k......would need to do private sale as dealers will only give me £17.5k for it. Anyone aware of someone that might be interested, let me know!!

Getting a little fed up of the lack of Information. Placed my order 18th April and still just order confirmed from factory.
Dealer has no further info.
Exclusive make that much difference.
Getting tempted by RS4's but must resist.

So my car left Ingolstadt 3 days ago, at a guess it is now on a carrier as the African Highway left Emden this evening due into Sheerness at 1800hrs Saturday 1st August. Im guessing a week to clear the port and then a few days to transfer to the dealer so should arrive around about the 14th August.

How do you get hold of this shipping info? Ours was already showing as left ingolstadt last Friday so will it be on the African highway too with yours ? How often do the ships cross, and do you know when the last ship into sheerness was from Emden? Cheers!

If you google Marine AIS you can access the info for free. There are apparently a couple of ships a week, African Highway left last night having been in Emden from its return journey for approx 24hrs. (Previous destination Sheerness). If you're in the south of the UK this is most likely the port of entry.

All speculation but it would seem logical that this is the boat based on when it left & when my car left Ingolstadt and its estimated arrival date from the dealer.

Hope that helps?

So I've finally had some luck with the Sytner group and had my first test drive in the RS3 at Leeds Audi.
Wow, what a machine. The only downside was that this one didn't have the dynamic pack and so the exhaust was really quite even in dynamic mode.
I've changed the spec slightly and removed super sports seats as I don't feel they're worth the £800 now after sitting in them. The salesman was fantastic and did everything he could to get to the figures I wanted and so I've placed an deposit with them.
Wish I had gone to Leeds Audi before placing a deposit with Coventry need to cancel with them on Monday.

Sorry to hear that. Social media is a good tool to get noticed. Join Audi groups etc. and twitter etc. a nice post on your dealers social media pages asking awkward questions are also effective, including the owning group.
Who did you order through out of interest?

I don't think my local dealer has a page. And they are doing all they can. I had an embarrassed sales manager on the phone with the bad news today. He suggested Twitter could be my friend. I'm not sure how as I don't have Twitter and I'm not sure how I would get it out there enough for them to take any notice. I have made comments on every post Audi UK have put on Facebook. Trying to be annoying.
Only had a response to my first post asking why people can order a car sell it and order another and still receive a bw in October.
They fobbed me off telling me to contact my dealer

Wow! That takes the **** a little! Surely they could up production a bit to deal with demand! A 12 month wait for a hatch back is a bit ridiculous!

Looks like mine won't be here until next august then! I only ordered a week ago!!

Will just have to see what the dealer says!

That wait it simply too long - even if car is stunning

People thought I was mad thinking of ordering an RS3 after only owning my TT for 7 mnths but it's looking like it's just as well if I'm gonna be left waiting 12mths for delivery

Given the utterly stupid lead times I am going to stick with my 8V S3 and maybe wait for the new RS4 saloon which will probably appear quicker than an order now for an RS3 SB. There might even be a TT RS worth looking at in the time it'll take for an RS3 to appear.

Have you guys thought about phoning around dealers to see if they have spec-able builds available

That is nonsense. It would be funny if they have the facelift presented in March and yours will not come until July. You would see facelift models circulating even before having received your pre-facelift.

This is one of the questions I'm asking, also I specced the car with what options were available in April, I presume there will be more soon. So I will be getting an out of date car. Why would they make exclusive an option if it's not available. And why has it taken 4 months to tell me. An option of changing my order to std colour would have been appreciated!
