RS3 Build Tracker Spreadsheet

Quick question possibly not related to the new car, but i was looking at trade in option for my current 2016- Rs3 with 64k on the clock, We buy any car are quoting 21k and i run Audi today and they also said 21k, does this seem a little low considering any i see for sale are 25k and up?

You are better selling privately. Both Audi and WBAC will likely sell for the figure you mentioned as they need a return etc

@Terri seem to be holding value well. I sold my 2015 RS3 in 2018 for £30k !

TX.

Edit - try carwow as they seem to bid a bit higher.

Good Morning All,
3 cars confirmed to be picked up next week or after. 4 heading to dealers while at least 8 are waiting on the queue @Emden. Compared to previous year, the build appears to be trickling, yet continuous and batched in colours from order date.



Tracking: (In Build or Completed to Emden)
Carbon @j1sgo - Sb-DaG - @Emden
Carbon @Robsrs - Sb-KeG still @Emden
Vorsprug @Phill6666 Sb-KyG - Build completed to Emden
Vorsprung @Grolli Sb-MyB - Now awaiting Transit to UK? Stuck @Emden?
I was told by the dealer on the 27th April that my build was complete and that it was moving to be shipped to the UK. A day later I got an email from Audi UK to say that:
"We're happy to tell you that all the rigorous tests have been completed and we've checked and double checked for any imperfections. Now it's time for your brand new RS3 to leave the factory and head off on its journey to you."

The stage on the email from Audi UK said "Final checks"

So I have really no idea where it is - sorry I can't be of more help. How do folks know if it's at/on the way to Emden? Are their dealers telling them or do we get additional emails from Audi UK?

I got the 'final checks' email from Audi on 29th March and the 'in transit' email on 1st May, telling me it was on the boat.
However, my dealer gave me the heads up a couple of days earlier.
In between those 2 emails, I assume it was travelling to and then stuck waiting at Emden.
The delay was certainly frustrating and I hope things start to speed up at Emden.
Things have happened really quickly since. I am now picking the car this Thursday, which is 5 days earlier than expected.

Glad you're getting your car soon!

Dealer told me about 3-4 weeks, but from what you've said, that sounds overly optimistic!

@Terminator x's (Sb-TaR) and @WilsonRS's Carbon (Sb-KeG) should have commenced build according to their order date, whilst later orders for the similar spec have entered build etc.. Is there some other Audi shenanigans at play.

Just got a message from my dealer... Good news... moved to status 20 with build week 21.

you’ve got to remember these companies will want to make a profit. I sold my RS3, 3 1/2 years old with 5k on the clock. The Audi dealer sold it in a couple of days and make 6k profit (ouch). In hindsight, I should have sold privately.

Thanks for the info yeah your all probably right sell private, going to get it listed and see what happens, there are only 3 for sale over here and none are Sepang so might get some interest :)
 
Update from dealer today, my car has arrived in Sheerness.

Good Morning All,
Here we are again on the summary.
Congratulations to @WestyRS and @JONNY RED on picking up their RS3s.
The positive aspect of the summary is that we continue to pickup cars approx a couple a week and at the same time cars going into build one or two at a time following the colour batches with exclusive colours in the mix.
Waiting on Turbo Blue batch to start.
odd: Unable to fathom out why the Tango Red of @Terminator x is not fulfilled at all, while all orders for Tango Red, including later orders have been built.
Cars collected last week. Congratulations.
Carbon @JONNY RED - Sb-KyG.
Carbon @WestyRS - Sb-DaG

Good Morning all could someone give me the diameter size of the round steering wheel on the Vorsprung as I would like to purchase a disc lock in advance
 
@RS03??? I haven't cancelled the order so if they ever do get in touch (Audi or the dealer) I will let you know.

Is urs a Vorsprung with dynamic pack? If so, wonder if the dynamic pack is the hold up.
 
how odd …… can’t tell if it‘s damaged.
Given the barrier is embedded in the front grill I think it's safe to say there will be some damage. A radiator is right behind that too, so I imagine there's all sorts of sensors, brackets, wiring, etc. that will also need to be fixed. Also don't know how there would be a trail of oil unless it fell off the upper deck of a transporter... And I wonder why the driver side window is smashed/open? So many questions! :tearsofjoy: :tearsofjoy:
