It depends on the dealers allocation. Sounds like your dealer was out of allocation when he took your order and left it on the pile unable to place the order until he got the next quarters released.

My car is being delivered tomorrow- ordered in May from dealers May allocation.

Ordered July and was told from the start delivery will be March 2011
I was happy to wait for a 10.5% discount. If you are waiting long, you should expect more of a discount than the usual 5-6% range.

I am in the UK BTW

Edit: I called the dealer last week & was told the factory accepted the order, but did not allocate a production week yet.

I ordered my 170tdi S-Line in April and was promised delivery in September. Delivery now expected in December with a current build week of week 47. I've kicked up a bit of a fuss and, having sold my current vehicle in anticipation, have been provided with an A6 Avant S-Line by Audi UK, foc until the Q5 arrives. This is the Audi "Mobility" programme in action. This suggests that the delivery problems of the Q5 are not just down to slightly unscrupulous dealers but also down to national and international production problems.

As a matter of interest, I have had to provide insurance for the "Mobility" vehicle. This, as you might expect, was not particulary straight forward since I have "no financial interest" in the vehicle. My current insurer couldn't help and a local broker couldn't either. Audi insurance have, however, come up with the goods. The only downside is that I will have to insure the Q5 through them - at least for the current year.

All I have to do now is to find a Christmas stocking to accommodate a Q5!

Well I reckon it won't be much short of 6 months from order to delivery. So their estimate was correct........but they had me worried for a while

I wonder what happened to this new super software that they rolled out in July that would allow customers to log in and watch the progress of their order at every stage?
