I have the same build week, the only small difference is mine ISNT on the way.......

Great news, will you delay delivery until the 67 plate launches?.

Yes. Definitely holding delivery until start of September.

We don't seem to get stage notifications now so it goes from 5-6 without the sub stages between.

Mine will be registered on my personal plate so I'll take it as soon as its available.

The Audi tracker is very comprehensive, there's the pretty web page that shows steps like panel shop, paint, assembly, qc etc. You can also log on to a text based web page that shows checkpoints when your car has left the factory, reached the port, assigned a boat, reached the uk etc.

These weeks are really dragging now.

Mine is now in the UK so i'm thinking of taking it asap and going for the private plate option too.

Could arrive on my birthday next week which will make a change to get a present that is not socks!

That's a lovely motor, great birthday present.

I have to say, I'm not a fan of the lower front valance since the face lift, but the changes particularly around the fog lights blend into your chosen black paint color really well and it could in fact start to grow on me. It looks much better now the radar sensor has been relocated behind the VW badge. How does the drive compare to your GTD ?

Anyway, my A3 has been built and should leave the factory for Emden any day now. :-) Depending on the shipping I should only have a couple more weeks to wait. Its been a long wait since April

I agree with you on the front valance which is why I chose the black to tone down the detailing. Colour choice is tricky with the GTi because the red GTi badges on the wings clash with most of the colours and only work with Red, White and Black in my view.

I did debate about changing the wheels but actually they have grown on me and they are really easy to clean!

I read a lot of reports comparing the GTi & the GTD and was sceptical that there would be much of a difference. All I can say is I was wrong the GTi is far more nimble on the twisty roads that the GTD although the GTD was never bad the GTi is a true GTi the GTD's engine did make it heavier in the corners with it rather pulling you round where as the GTi turns in beautifully.

The power difference is all there although I've not exploited it too much as I'm running the engine in gently for the first 1000miles.

I look forward to seeing pics of the A3.

Everything I have read points out that the weight of the diesel in the GTD can be felt in the cars handling when compared to the Gti . Maybe the Gti will go easier on front tyre wear....

The A3 is now on the dockside at Emden, there's a sailing to Grimsby tonight which I may get on. Without realising I've turned into a bit of a boat nerd. Did you know vessel EMS Highway leaving Emden tonight has the capacity to hold 1600 cars...

I ordered the car in Nano Grey, I think I've seen one in the flesh so I've taken a bit of risk but this grey is like no other I've seen. Its very much a marmite colour, the closest thing I have seen is VW Urano grey but Nano is a few shades lighter and almost has a matt finish.

I will be interested to see some pics and your thoughts VW v Audi

Also the difference between Petrol and Diesel. The GTi is so quiet compared to the GTD.

Enjoy delivery day.

finally collected yesterday after too much buggering around with the paperwork for my private reg plate. Initial impressions are very good.

Very sharp. The grey is shining very nicely. Be interested to get a report one you've had it a while
