Week 51
A5/S5 Coupe – Revised Information
Revised Information
• Availability of the panoramic sunroof is reduced due to production constraints and is
currently not available on new orders until June 2008.
• The 1.8T engine has been re-opened for ordering.
• S5 lead time is currently showing March as production is full up to that time. As a
result Centre tagged cars have been locked to allow customer cars to be scheduled.
• Scheduling of 2.7TDI multitronic has been revised and lead times for this engine
should be calculated as early May 2008 for customer orders due to vehicles taking 5
weeks in addition to the scheduled build week to be completed.
Previous Information
• Please note that Black headlining is only available with upholstery colours GD or GG with Sports
seats and only with GD on standard seats (26/09/07).

If one of the mods could make this thread a sticky it would be a good idea, as I think the info is quite relative all the time.

Damn, no sunroofs available... were I ordering today it wouldn't affect my decision (going sans sunroof), but I'm sure some people with potential orders would now think twice about it.

It's an easy choice for us in the UK - We just don't have any sun :D

The Return of Crespo! Where ya been?

I think this only applies to the UK, Crespo. We don't have any dealers in the U.S. who post such useful information to this forum. Nor do you for DR, unfortunately. I don't think sunroof issues apply to U.S. builds, and perhaps not DR either.

Probably is UK only. Still slightly worrisome, I'd say.

I've just been busy. Work and xmas vacation do that. No order yet...

Hi Matt, i ordered a 1.8 sport in early December and have been told today that the earliest delivery is likley to be end of April or early May, does this sound correct?

Also i have not been given a firm build date yet, from you experience do you know how long it takes to get a build date, post order porcessing?

Thanks
Aman

This is my favorite comment of the week- welcome back:D And to think that a mild mannered comment by me sent him off on his rant. Anyway, that is now history.

Watch out for that - apparently he doesn't like people using his 'name' in posts!:D :D
His post from my thread about getting my car:

Can you please keep my name out your post in the future please, i know your trying to be smart and funny, but i have asked you nicely and i'd appreciate it. Its serves no purpose at all:mad:
BTW, his 'name' not used in this post - it's just quoted!

...and if he's still around, that's irony for you!:D :D
