I've noticed a price rise. I ordered a 3.0 TDi, last week, the base price for the sport was 34, 380, the new price is 34, 715 on the new brochure. Just thought if anyone has a quote on the old price - they might still get that deal?

Its a reasonable increase in all fairness too, not a rip off anyway :)

According to the contract it is up to the seller i.e dealer if they wish to pass on the increase, although if they do, I am allowed to cancel if I wish and walk away - would they risk this?

The S5 OTR price seems to have gone up about £360. Think its due to light and rain sensors now standard fit. See TPM is now a £75 option here in the UK whereas it was basic for the US due to the regs.

First I've heard of the increase, but since I ordered my car back in October, I have a contract signed by both myself and the dealer I bought it from with all the prices listed (including the basic list price, options and VAT). Any attempt to alter this would clearly be a breach of contract, so I'm not expecting any problems.

I would expect that the price you pay should be the price quoted at the time you ordered the car (and therefore presumably paid a deposit, as I did) rather than at the time of delivery. This should then give a fixed price for the car regardless of any delays caused by either Audi themselves or the dealer - if either party tries to change this then they are in breach of contract.

I'm no expert on the law, but this seems pretty cut-and-dried to me!

This could potentially affect a few of us, so I read the T&C's:

It basically states that the seller can raise or lower the price (yeah right!) between signing of the contract and final payment, but they have to let you know if they intend to do this. You then have 7 days after that notification to cancel your order, or you accept the price change by default.

I'll certainly let you know if my dealer contacts me about this.

In my experience of this you will pay the price at the time of ordering on the basis that is the price the dealer also pays, hence no one loses out.

Not true, the dealer pays the price when the car is consigned, i.e. built and at the docks and that is why the customer also pays that price, but has the right to cancel if its gone up.

Cars ordered before close of business 3rd December are contract protected. If the order is placed with Audi ordering after this date then the price increase applies.
I ordered my car on 4th at the old price. Dealer phoned me today to tell me 2 things - they will absorb the £200 increase because they should have told me when I ordered and didn't.:)

Secondly, I was told that my car has the B & O sound system so we agreed a small discount on that.:)
