    Ye you guys should definitely wait for the reasons given.
    It would be ‘nice’ to have 18 plate just to have the current plate for 6 months rather than it be superseded after 4 weeks but not too bothered. Not going to wait a whole month just so others can see my car and think ‘nice that’s brand new’. But if it was 2 weeks yes I would wait just for the privalidge :). Ps the newest car I’ve ever bought is 6yrs old! So this is kinda special moment!
    Although if I lease or buy new after this one I’m aware this S4 will be handed back a month before the 2020 plate so I will have the same issue again, If I wait I will always switch to a new car on the new plate. Yikes what do I do!

    Same here, just waiting for the car to be delivered to the dealership so we can go and inspect the car before collection on the 1st March.

    My order did that so I would say you car has left, and on it's way to the port around 3-4 days. Then the luck of the draw. My current A3 order was only there a day, the one before that almost 6 weeks.....

    My RS3 (and I am sharing here because I have an S3 now) arrived at Sheerness on Monday (stage 40).

    I am expecting it to arrive at the dealer within the next 7 days - although I am hopeful it will be before the weekend.
    We finalised all the finance today - just need to get it sent over and signed after tomorrow because the settlement figure on my S3 changes then.

    Just had a look, Audi CS said it "went into production" on Monday? 'Apparently' yet it still hasn't moved from status 20 although the tracker shows QC.

    {"responseInfo":{"code":0,"desc":"Success"},"data":{"orderNumber":"","orderStatus":"20","deliveryDealerCode":"00000","orderHistory":[{"orderStatus":"24","statusDate":"2018-01-29T00:00:00+0000"},{"orderStatus":"23","statusDate":"2018-01-27T00:00:00+0000"},{"orderStatus":"22","statusDate":"2018-01-26T00:00:00+0000"},{"orderStatus":"21","statusDate":"2018-01-25T00:00:00+0000"},{"orderStatus":"20","statusDate":"2018-01-18T01:06:32+0000"},{"orderStatus":"10","statusDate":"2017-12-23T01:04:29+0000"}]

    You have just learned about the infamous fake tracker updates (which there are literally hundreds of posts about - why you should read back through the thread!).

    The tracker updated 21 on Thurs, 22 on Fri and on Monday at midnight like clockwork 24 which is QC. The real car however starts the build on the date that your build week is, the first time the tracker is up to date is when it goes to 30 - when it leaves the factory.

    As far as CS is concerned those status numbers mean nothing and only on the first date of your build does their system show you are being built. Typically the build process is finished and the car leaves the factory on Wednesday or Thursday of the build week.

    So I expect at around 1.05am today (or tomorrow at the same time) it will go to stage 30.

    Appears to have left the factory! Wahey!

    What’s the average time until the train (guessing it’s sitting in a parking space at the moment and is due for a train?) as it left the factory supposedly at 12:05AM

    The tracker does NOT update in real time.

    It updates at the end of the day between midnight and just after 1 am.

    Your car left the factory earlier in the day. It takes 3 days to reach the port then up to 7 days to get on a boat. In my case my car took 6 days in total to get from the factory on a boat and arrived in the UK on the 7th day.

    Where it has been sitting since Monday :( and so now I can look forward to a weekend without my new car which is sitting in a compound at Sheerness being **** on by seagulls because the ******* transport company seem to be picking up everyone else’s car first!

    The factory is allowed 6 weeks for delivery. My A3 order last year spent almost 5 weeks at the port alone, my current A3 order spent all of one day at the port before getting loaded on a ship. It's the luck of the draw with the boat. It's also may not the transport company that could be holding things up each car has to be registered by customs at the port of entry, so there could just be a back log.

    The car will have it's protective covers on so I would not worry about the BS, I'd be more concerned about the minimum wage car washer at the prep centre waiting with a dirty bucket & gritty sponge.....

    I’ve paid the deposit already signed the finance and the car is registered. It is literally my car. And it is sitting at the port.

    I want to be listening to that sweet 5 cylinder engine this weekend not waiting for the transport company! :p :(

    I was going to say I’ve not yet asked the dealer not to touch it (will once it’s on a ship or in a few days, so they know) but wondered if it’s possible/ an unreasonable request to have it delivered from the dealer to my house (which ive asked to pay for as it’s a fair distance away) with the covers etc on so that when they’re taken off it’s clearly not been touched and has been well protected? Wonder if anyone’s had that done before.

    Dealer has been told not to wash my car which they have agreed on. When I picked up My A6 the the other year dealer also agreed to wash the car, it turned up a little dirty but it was fine, as the paint work was in perfect condition

    I've also paid my deposit, but I'm not signing anything until I see the car as the last one was rejected. Your dealer is far too keen if you have already signed the paper work.

    Actually I wanted to do it because I don’t want any delay changing car. They did say to me it would be better to wait before paying the deposit to check the car but honestly if there are issues I’ll get them to send it to a paint shop and sort it out.

    What happened to your car that made you reject it?

    One of the side side skirts was damage during shipping, the body shop tried to repair but cause more damage. I would never now except a new car that had been or has to go to the body shop for repair, not when your paying Audi prices.

    I’d be exactly the same as the last time although it wasn’t an Audi they got the engine and configuration wrong! Although I thought you paid the deposit on purchase but haven’t on this one...

    I paid 50% deposit on the reject car that has been transferred onto the new car, which is now at the dealership waiting on 1st March delivery.

    7 days to get on a boat sounds a tad optimistic ! Its does happen, but not often

    Each to their own I suppose but I don't get this need to keep the shipping covers on until its collected. My view is you're better off collecting the car under bright lights in the show room. In the unlikely event the dealer has damaged the paint (imagine the bad publicity generated) you'd have more chance of spotting imperfections. You're quite within your rights to go over every inch of the paint work before signing for it.

    I hope you got a good deal or something nice thrown in, the 50% value of the car would have made some interest sat in your account rather than the dealers

    Audi have provided a new 67 plate A5 sportback for me to use while other one was being ordered, built and delivered, which will be a total 5 months + the extra discount I got, so I'm happy about them keeping the money.

    I understand that but it’s going to the dealer and then getting shipped to me on a trailer, hence I’m not actually getting it inside the dealership because of the distance - this dealer was much cheaper than everyone else for the same car elsewhere - in which case it reduces the chances of any further damage while it’s on another transporter

    Has anyone here had their car turn up the dealer even though CS says its at port?

    I am not referring to the tracker not updating until after the car arrives as that happens quite a bit, but what I mean is online chat or over the phone saying its still in port when it isn't.

    I’ve been stuck at order status 30 for over a week now, seems a long time to get from the factory to Emden

    It can take around 10 days from the factory to Emden but status 30 isn't just the journey to the factory its all the steps from the factory to getting on the boat. If you look at your JSON (please just look back a few pages as people always ask how to access it) then your see that the status is probably 38 by now which means it is waiting for a boat at Emden.

    I would suggest that they haven’t scanned your car or the tracker isn’t up to date. Try the online chat on Audi.co.uk under contact us. It should appear on the side of the page if available.

    Have you called your dealer? Because you don’t need to wait for it to update. Typically status 70 comes up after you have collected the car. I would think that unless your living in the middle of no where it’s already at the dealer.

    If I remember rightly I had the same build week as you. Showing as 38 but no official 'update' as to when it changed.

    So my car was transported at Lunchtime Wednesday. Dealer said it will arrive Thursday and they should be able to have it ready for me that afternoon depending on when it arrives.

    The tracker has however already updated to status 70. Technically it is correct but it’s just a few hours ahead of reality.

    But for anyone who is curious you can see my status below. It’s an RS3 saloon which is built in Gyor Hungary just like every other A3/S3/RS3

    It does not exist according to the out of date pages, they still list the A3 (3 door) for Ingolsdt.

    It's also interesting about the "g tron" which we don't get in the country.

    Currently on status 39? Any ships moving about... im presuming it’s going to sheerness or Grimsby? Appears EMS highway arrived in Grimsby in 09/02 11:53 so likely to be this one?
