Hi,

I ordered an A6 Avant 45 TFSI Black edition with C&S and Tech pack on 1st December 2020 and was hoping I would get the car for 1st March but the car hasn’t been given a build slot yet. Does anyone know what the deliver to customer time would be for a factory order please from the time I ordered it please ? Thanks In advance.

Mine took months.  I ordered very similar and they said to me lead times were 3 - 5 months.

It did take just over 3 months.  I guess it is different for every car but you should get updates form Audi.

I ordered mine on 2nd Feb and delivery is mid-March

I had an update yesterday to say it’s now built and arrived at the UK port so hopefully I will have delivery soon. Thanks everyone.

I ordered my 50 TFSI e Quattro in October and it’s still not even been given a build slot yet. £56k for a car and can’t build it in half a year - hardly a ringing endorsement

Vehicle confirmed for build today. Absolute joke of a delay to be honest but still looking forward to the actual car

That's madness, allegedly there's an issue with getting computer chips for some manufacturers. This might have been one reason for a delay.

My A6 Black Edition with Tech Pack was delivered last week, 12 weeks exactly after I ordered it. 
 

Was promised a 12 week lead time when I ordered and it was exactly 12 weeks.

Have you gone conventional fuel or PHEV?

I got a great deal on a 3 year lease on the 40TFSi.

Probably will be my last petrol engined car, as I reckon electric cars will start to outsell ICE by then as the tech improves.

Good stuff - hope you enjoy it. I think it’s because I ordered the TFSI E. reckon that’s the delay - though I will benefit from a 17.1kwh battery upgrade so not all doom and gloom.

has a confirmed build now and an ETA of mid July so fingers crossed

Hey, sorry to hear that. What model have you ordered? Mine is now ready for delivery next Thursday. I went for the 50 TFSI e Quattro sport.

 

how long you been waiting? Mines taken 10 months looking at the original order form

I’m about to order one too. I’m really excited about it. I really love ordering stuff from different websites, but my favorite would surely be Aliexpress. I don’t even know why; it’s just really simple and cheap. I mean, what else do you need? The only issue I ever had is that I really need to have a good delivery tracker to know where the hell my order is. That is why I’ve been suing aliexpress tracking application for a month now, and I can easily say they it works amazingly. I’m finally able to track my orders and not worry about anything.

I ordered the same last month and was given an estimated delivery month of July 22. What's been your experience with the 40TFSI? Enjoying it? I'm worried it may be underpowered

Had it a few months now and have to say I really like it. I’ve had quite a few high powered cars, Golf R, Audi S4 etc, and whilst this obviously isn’t as quick it is still isn’t a slouch. The mild hybrid adds a little torque boost early on in the rev range, which can be felt better when at lower speeds.

Gear changes are silky smooth (unlike the diesel version apparently), road noise and refinement is top class. It’s a very smooth and quiet place to be. Speed perception is very hard to judge as the cabin certainly cocoons you.

Don’t expect it to be like a hot hatch, but for a big barge it handles itself very well. It feels like a much smaller car on the road. Steering is much sharper than previous Audis I’ve owned. You can still feel it’s front heavy when pushed, but under normal driving it handles quite sharply.

The interior is superb. The dashboard and driver instruments are in a class of their own, the tech pack adds so many nice touches. The seats are the comfiest I’ve sat in. All in all a great place to be.

Any niggles, of course. Audi Pre-sense (Adaptive braking) is a pain and is over sensitive. Lane departure can’t be permanently turned off, another pain. There is an occasional rattle from the dash when travelling over slower rough ground, especially annoying as it’s pronounced in the quietness of the otherwise serene cabin.

All in all a great car, If be surprised if you don’t like it unless your expecting similar performance to an RS6.

Thanks for this jammy. I have just ordered a red black edition with C+S and the 40TFSI. 

I'm coming from a C7 A6 BE with the 2.0 tdi 190 so im not concerned about performance. 

Do you have any detail regarding economy? I'm expecting circa 10mpg less than the diesel. What's the best you can achieve on a long run being careful etc?

Again thanks for the write up above.
