Just arrived back from a business trip in Dublin to be informed the dealer called and my car is to be delivered to me on a covered low loader on FRIDAY MORNING. :D :D :D
The next couple of days are going to seem like a lifetime.:eek: :eek:

Bad news mate. According to the Daily Scum and other gutter press the rate of inflation is now so high that the Government has had to cancel Fridays. Those on a sub 40 hour working week will be compensated by an additional 12 hours being added to Saturday and Sunday so they have even more time to spend money on cheap beer, scream at their kids in shopping centres and generally beat the crap out of each other.

Those of us working over 40 hours per week will get the usual sweet FA.

Good luck for Friday!

Oh well at least I get more time to spend with the wife and kids, with the wife using that good old wifey sayin "I DON'T KNOW WHY I BOTHER" everytime you forget to move your coffee cup or happen to miss that bit of fluff on the carpet when you have walked past it.
In fact she has just been going on about how THIS weekend we need to have a really good spring clean around the house. I don't know why I bother sometimes I really don't. :mad:

All that said I must tell you I did sack the cleaner, but in all honesty she deserved it ie: on her first day she asked what to do when she leaves as we were off to work.
I told her press part on the alarm and leave, she asked me to write it down!!! so I did.
Late in the afternoon I returned home to find the alarm buzzing the back door wide open and the dogs running wild in the garden (As wild as 3 miniture yorkshire terriers can get anyway)
So I checked all the house for intruders and found none !!!
Next step call the new cleaner and ask why the door was open and you guessed it she said you never said to close the door you said JUST press part.

Days going slower then ever, all overtimes and whole weekend 12hr each taken, trying just be busy or sleep ... keep waiting for days to pass, I asked dealer to send me my manual - so I can read it 100 times before Ill ride her firsth time.. All movies on youtube etc about A5 seen, this forum is being checked before private emails as firsth thing after opening eyes. I am fully understanding how it is in that last few days ... but soon .. soon

rino, I can't wait for you to have the true feeling. Pulling out of the dealer, in your car, going where you want to go. The manual will help you at 5:00 in the morning get through your coffee as you plan your route of the day.

Today has been one of the longest in history I'm sure but I'm also sure tommorow will be even longer as they are to PDI my car tommorow morning so it's going to be the afternoon before it's delivered. I tried calling them today and asking if I could have it still wrapped up but they told me Audi's policy is to clean and inspect all cars prior to delivery or collection. Shit I could have spent all evening cleaning my beauty to my standards. I have told em throw a bucket of water over it then get the god damn car to me under no circumstances must work experience boy touch it with a cloth, rag or his pullover sleeve. GRRRRRR Hurry up Friday....

I'll have a fiver on it pissing down Friday !!!!!!!

Congrats on the call. I hope for a speedy delivery tomorrow. I was back at the dealer today and my car still shows in production. Dealer says it may be mid June or the end of June... isn't that some crap. I'm about to make a trip to Ingolstadt and kick some ass

Quick update: The dealer just called and the car is down for a pre12:00 noon delivery on the low loader. I have a funny feeling I may be a tad pissed later just to help me sleep.:p :p

I did ask they throw in the ipod lead but got told to bog off in not quite so many words:mad: Just cannot be arsed to argue as I don't want to piss em off at this stage

Audi Policy or not, I instructed my dealer not to touch my car and they didn't, even though they thought it was a strange request. If you don't want swirls I'd TELL them you don't want them to clean your car rather than ASK.

Enjoy tomorrow (like you need to be told :D ), and apparently, weather for us up north is forecast to be dry and sunny again.

It finally arrived and worth the wait. god bless Audi.

Well guys yes it's here yes it's everything I expected and yes I'm shagged out, it's been a long day, More to follow in the next day or so as I'm busy:rolleyes:

One thing I will say is the boot (Trunk for our US friends) is fu**** enourmous. Now all that money and I have had soooo many comments on this very point whilst I have been visiting everyone I know;) and a few I don't too. Also nipped into halfords to get some stuff being carefull to park in the furthest corner for fear of damage (Thats the down side I didn't have this problem with the truck)
Close to the door was an Astra SRI or something like that, when I came out of the store it had pulled along side my car to have a good look......I also love to see people admire the car as you approach then watch them look back at you after you have passed. That's it for now I'm rambling...Will write more soon.
