New RS3 Lead Time

Post by RSQ » Mon Feb 05, 2018 12:56 pm

All,

I have an RS3 coming for the wife to be a little sister to my RS6 Perf.

However, despite ordering in December I still don't have a build date.... Likely to be coming in April/May. Long wait for a hot hatch.

Per tradition here is spec:

Mythos Black
Pan roof
rear airbags
heated/dim/folding mirrors
active lane and side assist
ext leather
phone box
ext warranty
nappa leather
Driver assistance pack
Bucket seats
Matrix LEDs
Comfort Pack
Magnetic ride

Should be nice!

Great spec - almost identical to mine! Although I ticked the Sports Pack and Black pack options and didn't go for the side assist / driver assistance pack.
I ordered mine last day of November, build week was given as 2nd Feb - it's now built, through QA and I got notification today that it is now on the boat over from Germany. :D

The next few weeks will drag until March!

I must have upset someone at Audi.

Order date 1/12/17
Will begin construction on 2/4/18. 5 months after order!

Even my Morgan 3 wheeler which was ordered in November will be here in March and they only build one of those a month.....

Wow! That is nuts!! What was your dealer up to?

It will be worth the wait - I picked mine up at the weekend and it's fantastic. Already swapped off the standard rotors and replaced with my RS6 replica wheels and winter tyres... I'll give it a month of so before the summer wheels go on. Needs a bloody good wash following the 350+ mile drive home but you get the gist:

Well it finally arrived. A long wait but a pocket rocket!

1,002 bhp across these two, a shopping car and a family dog wagon, unbelievable!!!
