I placed my order for my SQ5 back in December and was told I would have it early May, this was put back to end of May in Febuary. I have just been informed it will be with mid June I was also told I was one of the lucky ones as their is major delays with the car in Germany and that customers are not n
Being informed about it until the last minute. Does anyone else have any info on this.

I did discuss a purchase with M25 Audi. I did not like their attitude, very pushy soon as we get your deposit you will be first in the queue. Salesman knew very little and made some iffy promises e.g. "we can deliver sooner than any others" etc. If I were you I would phone around, see if you can find a better dealer. I guess you will risk loosing your deposit?

It's tempting but they have £1000 deposit and recently £2500 to have rear seat entertainment fitted just wish Audi would be honest about the delays in Germany as I guess lots of customers will be wanting thief cars for the August holidays. I have found whetstone to be excellent over the years this will be the 5th car I have bought from them.

re the shipping, its a black hole for Audi, its a third party that delivers to the port and then ships to the UK.
They simply don't know. Audi tracks the port as a build stage and same with the delivery center in the UK.

In general it takes anything upto 3-4 weeks after the point of build to hit the dealers, but thats an average. Sometimes its much less, sometimes its more. The other thing that happens and i'm not trying to say it HAS happened to you, is cars do get damaged in shipment and this extends the delivery times while they are getting repaired. these repairs/delays are not reported to the UK dealers.

Hi Merlin, I know how you feel - mine sat in the docks for the best part of two weeks and was evidently one of the early vehicles to be loaded - so last off the boat at this side of the pond - more delay.

I have been dealing with Watford M25 Audi. Three weeks ago I emailed every Audi dealer within 150 miles of the Midlands asking is there were any non allocated SQ5's available. I found 5 cars which were either at the dealers or on their way / July being the latest. The car that almost matched what i would have specked was in the showroom at M25 Watford Audi. I went down, sat in it, test drove it and placed my order. I pick it up tomorrow, couldn't have it until their replacement arrived. BIG smile tomorrow for me

I got the impression M25 salesmen would say anything to get a sale and seems you are being told the same. I don't see how they can blame Audi for delays, when a.n.other dealers can and have supplied SQ5s on or before the promised dates.

I took exactly the same approach: emailed every Audi dealer in the UK. Found 5 for May delivery in the colour I wanted. Strangely the response rate was not particularly high.

Have seen the white one @ Watford - first one I saw in the flesh - looks lovely and I hope you enjoy it.
