Hey Dave, one reason would be like mine. My dealer doesn't work for Audi he works for Auto Exchange here in Germany (Tax Free Government sales). And he can't track [email protected]%T. Believe me, its been driving me crazy on the other hand I do have a commission # that is obsolete for my dealer. And he has his little computer that says my car is in production since the 1st of May.The AudiWorld forums are littered with people asking to have commission numbers checked by the few users who have access to the system. What I never understand is why people don't ask their dealer.
Any business that can't keep you clued in on the status of a special-order $50000+ item doesn't deserve your business. If they get upset by requests for updates every couple of weeks, it's time to find a better dealer.
