Hi all

I’ve just ordered a new A3 edition 1,   1.5 auto, Just wondering if any body has any idea on how long it takes from experience, from order to delivery 

the dealer said late September, but when I’ve ordered new cars in the past it’s always longer, seems a long time to me, or could it be blamed on COVID ?

That seems a long time! Usually it's 3 months, but I know there's been an increased demand in cars now that restrictions be are lifting. Delivery time is also affected by the options selected. For example cars with special paint finishes, sunroofs etc take longer. 

Saying that it might take 3 months to build then a further month getting here thanks to covid and brexit etc.

Don't forget the world chip shortage - it is affecting production right across the board.

Hadn't realised that's affecting Audi. I know it's affecting jaguar.

Didn’t know their was a chip shortage, that might explain it, if indeed it is longer than usual

Definitely. Hadn't realised it affected all brands to be honest

Chip shortage will make no difference to lead time, ordered last month and also quoted September delivery. 
 

A3’s are made in Hungary, not ingolstadt and the chip concerned is only used on the R8 according to CARWOW on youtube. I’m hoping this is accurate 😬

I have now been given a build week of 21st June, week 26 and a delivery time of about 3-4 weeks after that so looking good

Great to hear 👍 you should be able to track the build online I believe.

My expected date given by the dealer was end of September but look to be picking it up maybe mid July would like to track it online but have been told it's unreliable and in any case I can't find the app to track it with, I ordered mine 9th of may, so our timings would be about right. 
What one Have you ordered ?

I ordered A3 S Line 2.0 TDI DSG - only option is the Driver's Assistance Pack. To track it you need the Audi order number (dealer should give it to you) and then contact Audi CC via Twitter or Facebook
