Yeah everyone who has a car on order will need to expect a 3-5 week delay. If your car has already been built, you're looking at another 3 weeks. If not, by all accounts, it's a 5 week delay.

I ordered two A5's for me and my brother in March and have been told today by Crawley they are unable to confirm that there is actually any production problems of the A5’s.

They tell me the latest publication from audi UK states that in order for us to estimate delivery of your car’s we will need to add 3 weeks to the scheduled production week. Both of your A5’s are scheduled for week 27 which was the 02nd July 2007. Therfore by adding 3 weeks the scheduled production would be week 30( 23rd July)

They have said therefore any car’s that have not passed checkpoint 8 will not be here this month. Mine are apprently at Checkpoint 7.

If that helps anyone at all? I'm guessing both my vehicles will be here in September then.

I spoke to Audi UK to get to the bottom of this today as everyone seems to be getting mixed up.

1) There is no factory shutdown
2) There is another safety/quality check which has been implemented. This will put all deliveries back up to a maximum of 3 weeks. There was also a mention that existing cars delivered and I guess dealer models will be recalled.

WoW!!! Pretty gutsy. I applaude Audi!

Probably one of the most important launches in a long time, and they recall already deployed vehicles for an extra safety/quality check.

It's reassuring to me that Audi believes in Safety 1st IF this is true.
