I order in Dec 08, and still another 3 months to wait. It is really killing me :wall:
Can't understand how can Audi make their customer wait this long

Anybody knows how Audi are dealing with drop in sales/credit crunch? Their UK sales figures were actually holding up quite well year on year in the uk in Nov/Dec (-10% or so, compared to 30% down for comparable brands), but the January figures are putting them back with the rest at 30/35% down compared to same month last year. I guess they must be starting to close some of their manufacturing facilities for periods of time, etc. to reduce their costs like everybody else seems to these days.

Cannot be good for delivery date.. :-(

Dealership called this morning - after I emailed complaining they were not keeping me up to date. Car will be ready for collection sunday next week (1st march)!

So Happy! :banana_1: Can't wait!

got it!

That's it! I got my A5 this afternoon - the dealership opened specially today to do deliveries (first day for new 09 plates in the UK). Had to wait a bit (previous appointment running late), but got my car ca. 13:00 this afternoon. So happy! :banana_1:

Out of interest what build week did you have? I'm 10/11 which means I'm due sometime in March hopefully...

Hello Gang,

I'm new to A5OC. I've been a member of Audizine and Audi Forums since 2003 (B6 platform subforum).

I ordered mine 30/10 and still waiting. Prolly 1-2 more months. This is really frustrating. At least I still have my modded A4 1.8T Sportec K04 Stage II to play with :)
