Just had word from the Dealership that the build date for our A1 has been delayed. It is now due on track to ship to the dealership 11th February, so we should have it mid to late February.

Absolutely gutted.

The reason they gave... Due to overwhelming demand on orders outstripping supply.

Not sure how that would impact us though, as surely new orders would not impact on orders placed back in September?

Merry Christmas :-(

Bad news :(

Thought they had the accommodation at the factory to keep up with demands :s how strange.

Have they offered any "compensation"

ordered mine in October and was told March/April.A few weeks ago was told it will be here next month as it was due to be built week 50.The factory is shut for 2 weeks over christmas plus bad weather may have caused delays.I am not bothered if mine is late as the weather should pick up by then.

you may find that its dealers holding back cars to next year, as Audi UK have set crazy targets for the dealer network!

Ordered a TDI SLine in White.
No "compensation". Have replied to them to see what else I can find out.
Original delivery was mid to late January, so a month delay.

News!

So my car is going into build next week and will take anything upto 1 week to finish.
It then ships to the dealership and is expected by 11th Feb.
They then have to do their tests etc (taking a further 1-2 weeks).

HOWEVER, they may hold it back at the dealership for the new reg as it could hit the last two weeks in Feb.

I WANT IT NOW!!!!

That's what I thought! Was told they need to do checks of some sort, so not sure why 1 - 2 weeks?!
