Dunno if this too personal but...how much did ur dealer want to secure the build date? I think mine was quite steep seen as my overall deposit is low. £1500 out of an over £2000 wen the cars not ready till sept? Previous cars with other manufacturers has been 100-500. Do u think its coz im quite young and audi dnt trust me lol

Possibly...

Mine was only £500. I suppose it depends on the dealer and what stock levels they have of A1's. If they have loads and you decide not to take the car it could take longer for them to sell it on, if that makes sense...

My dealer wanted 10% of the total cost of the car as a deposit. (about £1900) I told them no way was I going to pay that. To get the sale we agreed on a £500 deposit. Talk to you're dealer if they want the sale they should come around to what you want to pay.

We're putting £1500 down but only had to pay £200 at the time of ordering, with the rest being due at delivery.

Not sure if this is dealership's standard or if because the finance had already been approved by this point, but we had gone prepared to pay full deposit at that time.

No deposit here - but then that's Germany for you. Never paid a deposit at point of order here.

I dont see the point in leaving a deposit in the Uk, as you can get your deposit refunded even when the car arrives at the dealers.

Are some of the vowels broken on your keyboard? In English please. :D :lol:

I didn't put any deposit down on mine but it was a car that was already built and waiting to be shipped so perhaps that made a difference?

Most places I've been to have always wanted £500 including my last audi...

Never paid a penny, did sign an order form though. It was a stock car, bought Saturday and picked up the following Thursday, just signed the PCP forms and drove it away leaving my PX there.

£500 on ordering, used my Visa debit card on collection for the balance, save getting the cash out of the bank.

£999 - though that was on a £35K A5 sportback - which I had to cancel - and they wouldnt return the deposit but I could re-use it if I ordered something else later on - which I did.
