After spotting a red a1 while my son and i were out one saturday afternoon i have taken the plunge and ordered one!.

1.6tdi s-line in Glacier white mettalic,privacy glass,folding mirrors,black styling package,18" rs4 type alloys,xennon lights,rain and light sensor,heated super sport seats in nappa leather,dab radio -audi upgrade,centre arm rest,electronic climate control,tyre pressure monitor,alluminium vents and service pack- i think thats all but will have to double check!!.

week 30 has been spoken about and i hope to take delivery in september, was a tough choice to pick a colour as i was sold on daytona grey but changed my mind at the last minute.

I would have liked it a little sooner but as this is my first ever brand new car then the wait will be worth it, I was thinking about getting the roof line in a different colour but at the minute I have just gone for the glacier White without it, probably to late to change my mind now as when I ordered the car the salesman said if I wanted to change things then please let us know in a few days otherwise it will be to late.

Car is coming from highland Audi in Inverness who have been very nice to do business with.

Great news and awesome spec! Very similar to my order. I couldn't add privacy glass at the last minute though :(

Nice spec| Ordered Glacier White 1.4 S line myself back in May. Still no news at all from the dealer as to when it will be built/arrive. Pretty frustrating tbh when see people who have bought way after me being more in the know.

Not long before the robots start to get busy welding the shell together then off to the paint shop!, I have showed the other half all the videos on you tube!, she just shakes her head now.

I'm trying to hide my excitement but it's not working.

Not long to wait now, retention certificate for the private plate has been requested by the dealer and I think the car should be with them this week coming.

It has arrived at the dealer!. Not heard a thing for ages and then yesterday lots of emails from the dealer telling me what was happening. Would have gone to see it but a family funeral and work commitments for the next week rule that out. Not long till sept so I will just have to be patient,if that's possible

I ordered my 1.6 SE diesel at beginning of March & finally got it mid-August, after being told it would be delivered in mid-May. Struggled to get any updates from dealer, but they lent me a courtesy car, so I did 4000 free miles in their car :)
