I think my car will be ready to be picked up from Audi Glasgow in the 3rd week in March? My mind set is of,the longer it takes to come the less grit it's going to be covered in, as they still grit the roads up my way till the end of March.

Sepang SB-S-Tronic Chrome Roof Rails,Lunar Silver Leather and the most exciting features i am looking forward too is the Panroof and Led headlamps,seen all the rest of the options in my sons Demo cars

Hi Jassy, I'm liking the wash 'n' go idea :icon thumright: The salesman is a bit of a car nut and does detailing on his own motor so I'm sure that would be possible then I'll spend a day on it when I get it or book it into AutoDetox.

Grimsby is definitely the port for any cars destined for Northampton Audi like mine and I'd guess many any that are Central or to the East. My car was BW6 and went code 20 on BW4 so no more changes as I was toying with the 10 spoke titanium alloys and the alcantara interior up until then. It seems to have been built a week early and was on the boat on Monday so in theory a March 1st pick up could well be possible but I'd rather not rush them TBH and they may not have any handover slots left especially with March 1st falling on a Sunday and all that. Yes I am mate, very much so now that the car is a reality. Need to sort out the p/x on my Seat with them in the next couple of weeks then sign all of the paperwork.

It's 4 weeks i think since i was in the showroom ordering the car,then changing the thing back and forth,and now its reversed deep into the back of my mind...only when i come on to the forum it kinda comes to the forefront of jassy's mind...lol,l even forget what sepang blue looks like, my son picks up a A5 Quattro S-Tronic Black Edition Plus in Sepang Blue so l am looking forward to seeing that.
But even more looking forward too seeing your car mate....your spec is amazing...love the colour toooooooooo

Hi 949 and welcome :thumbs up:, Not sure how in works in the States but in the UK we either badger the dealer or phone Audi Customer Services. Other countries are able to track their car on-line so I understand. What have you got on order ?

I'm not car cleaning freak but mine had some warranty work done there last week, great service but some of the cars in the showroom were in awful condition, swirl and watermarks everywhere. Worse was a black s6, I dont what I'd do if they pulled the sheet off it and I saw it. I personally err on the side I'd caution and give it a good clean and protection yourself or get it done professionally

A good friend works there and he knows I am very picky so it will be looked after. But as soon as I get it I will get it detailed and actually thinking about getting it clear wrapped on the front section.

The day I ordered my sedan back
in July, I got a letter the next day
in the mail stating my build week.

I think it depends on the dealer and the whim of how Audi allocates cars to dealers. I ordered mine mid-October and didn't hear from the dealer or get a confirmed build week until early December. Then apparently I got bumped because they missed the planned delivery date by 6 weeks. They are currently missing that delivery date by another week, although in fairness that was because half the country was shut down by a snowstorm. I hope to get my car next week but not holding my breath.

I sold my car yesterday as well. For the first since I can remember I don't have a car at the moment! So for the next 7 days I have the choice of 5 or 6 Aygos and Yaris which are the pool cars from work, they will do to get me about.

roll on next Sunday morning!!!!

Just wondering where everyone is picking up from? Anyone else Sarf East (beckenham)

I only live up the road from Beckenham Audi, but in the end to went to Coulsdon because of an introduction from a friend at work.

Same group though, in SG Smith.

I am sorting my GAP this morning.

So, those who are picking up some time next week, who did you go with?

I'm leaning towards ALA

Think I'll be going ALA, need to give them a call this week.

I have just bought my GAP from ALA online.

For those thinking of doing that this week, when you get your schedule double check the policy start date. They seem to have a bug that sets the start date to the purchase date, even though I specifically entered 1st March.

A quick call to ALA sorted this out and they immediately sent me a revised document with a start date of 1st March.

Did you get them to price match any other GAP insurers? How did you get them to do it if so?
I know directgap is cheaper than ALA, but can't seem to work out online how to get them to price match

I need to buy mine before I pick up the car on sunday too!! :D

I emailed them with the price I got from gapinsurance123, they phone me back the same day and price match -20% of the difference.

All sorted in less than 10 minutes.

I just googled a promo code for 10% and went with that

I have found them very helpful on the phone though

In my opinion .....
Am I missing something.....? I thought your insurance covers total loss in the first year? I intended to get my GAP cover for year 2-3 ......

Sarcasm is hard on a forum ;)
Not all insures do this, worth checking it out. I know that Esure and Audi Insurance do. I'm with Esure and have deffered my gap to cover years 2, 3 & 4.

Perfect ...I will be going with Esure for my insurance. So You have purchased your GAP in advance? Can you not just purchase it later this year...?...or does it have to be purchased now?
