I have finally been given a build date of 22 April for my 1.8 TFSI Sport.

Does anyone have an idea as to what the production process consists of (stage wise and time wise) and how long you would expect it would take for the car to be finished and then shipped, and when i could reasonably expect to take delivery.

Thanks in anticipation.

The build seems to take anywhere from a few to 10 days. Someone in the UK will have to speak to shipping time. I believe Matt said 4 weeks, but it's looking like only 3 weeks to get all the way to the U.S. Also figure one week for dealer receipt and prep. You're probably looking at late May.

Hi,

I have a 1.8TFSi Sport on order and have had a update this week that may help you.
Basically you take your build week add 2 weeks for production/quality checking and then 3/4 weeks to get shipped to dealer and then 1 week for dealer preparation.
But then you have the problem of production delays mine has had 2 so far delaying it by 4 weeks. But I must say that Audi UK Customer Services have been great and kept me up to date.
It's still killing me the wait. I still have hopes of 1st March pick up.
