Do Build Dates Change


New A3 on Order
I had a call from the dealer last night that they have a provisional build date of week 13 for my car (I worked this out as next week), do they often change as the dealer said that its not set in stone and my well change.

I was thinking that if it is built next week and I allow 2 weeks for that process and another 2 weeks for shipping that I could have the car by early May , is this realistic much sooner than the mid June I was original quoted, I only ordered the car last week.

Cheers Matthew


Save the manuals
i ordered my car 2 days ago, and they told me it could be here for about 2 months, while the regular delivery is in 3-4 months. probably the global crisis affected on that :think:

I ordered my S3 sportback on the 23rd March, had the "thank you for the order letter" but nothing more, the dealer had the latest Audi build memo when i ordered and it was saying 10-12 weeks on S3 and 8-10 on A3.

I expect mine will be here mid June........ soooo lllooonnnngggg

Well the 8-10 weeks fits in with what i was thinking of the first week of may from order. Just looked on my weekly planner and if it does have a build week of week 13 thats this week, i cant see that if i ordered last week its been built this week, but who knows in this current climate. I know that the S3s are taking much longer to come.
