Twenty five minutes later……..

It’s a Kemora grey saloon vorsprung. (Thought it might have been Daytona)

Asked me what I’d pay ‘the RRP’ I said, cash buyer today.

Oh no we’ve had six enquiries overnight.

We’ve also sold 3 to a company last week, seems a lot of deals like this are being done.

Looks like these car dealers are buying multiple cars at a time from dealers as ‘company’ cars then moving them on after 350 miles.

This is a real p122 take. What is Audi UK doing about this?. Really makes me think, all of us who ordered in August with no build dates, because they have been masked and sold to other companies to hide the dirty/illegal practice.

Theyve sold 6 to RS Cars I was told

The dealers are worse than the punters trying to make a quick profit

Car is up for 72k so 10k over list.

His reasoning is they may have to discount several pre reg E-Trons by 5K each, so as a business they rarely get a chance to make this sort of money off a new car.

He also said the RRP is only a guide and doesn’t have to be adhered too.

Yes they are selling these as ‘company’ perk cars, his words not mine.

Trouble is the ‘company’ are just selling them on.

Once the cars are registered they can sell them at whatever price they want, because it’s no longer a new car.

Welcome to Capitalism lol.

Lets be honest, regardless if morally its wrong, questionable if its illegal tbh, but if you were in there shoes & someone would pay 10k extra for your car, I think we know what most people would do, personally I wouldn't pay 72k for an rs3, even if I did have it lol.

Struggling with its 61k let alone 72k

Audi will never do that. Porsche yes

My dealer told me that they were doing sweeps and any customers or dealerships with multiple RS3’s on order were being contacted to figure out why and have the multiples cancelled wherever possible.

He said they had a cancelled or duplicated order for a customer (can’t remember which one, but was basically a spare car order) that they were going to sell on but Audi cancelled the order for the dealership.

Thanks for the info in this thread.

Bexley Audi have a Turbo Blue car which they have already registered for 'overs'. My wife does not like it due to the black wheels .....:busted cop:

He did offer me the turbo blue Frankenstein car that they have at 61k but it’s the same spec as the Oldham one I could’ve bought in October at 54k
Poor spec.

One thing I forgot to mention.

The salesman at one point in the convo, tried to emphasise the price hike that comes in tomorrow (lol) as a contributing factor to any RS3’s for sale now.

‘No you mean the one that came in on Dec 1st’ ? I pointed out, ‘err yes that’s it, did it’ ?


So any cars you are selling now were ordered in Dec ? ‘err well no, they were ordered months back or RS cars allocated to our dealer network as sweeteners, for when we meet targets’

Hmmmm maybe some flannel in that somewhere.

Don’t know, unless they managed to convince Audi they needed multiples somehow?

We all have to wait for its factory order as none of the market will.be rrp price
Exactly think we're all of this mindset Tbh l wouldn't take a RS3 Vorsprung tomorrow even at retail if offered.... as l want the car l ordered in the colour l want...l can't fathom out why some people would pay well over the odds for one ....if l had £70,000 odd in cash I'd buy a superior car

I complained to Audi UK about the delays and dealers selling cars like this and the answer was:

1. Audi UK do not have any control over what the dealers sell and prices.
2. Audi UK are only passing orders to the factory and importing the cars.
3. They do not have any influence over the dates, quantities or pricing at all.

Now I don’t believe most of this but the fact is I have no evidence to support my position.

Essentially they are saying they are just the messenger.

Makes you wonder why we need an Audi UK then? might as well just ask the dealers to order direct from Germany complete with all the available options :)

Nicely swerved and washed hands of that one Audi UK

are any of these cars selling at these massively inflated prices though ?

They seemed to initially but now it appears the interest has tapered off enough that folk are being stuck with them rather than being able to move them on for massive profit.

Good! These are the same tw@ts that hoarded big roll no doubt, and I have no patience for them.

And would you buy it even if he offered it at the ‘normal’ price ?
I’d imagine that car has been driven hard if he’s been using it daily.
