Well, after what seems like a long wait, my car has been built and has been shipped to the UK.
I'm hoping to be able to collect the car in around 2 weeks (waiting for it to be transported to the dealer), which would make it approx 12 months from order to delivery.

I can't believe it's almost here - I'm very excited!

Bet you your Q5 is in for less than a day. It is a solid fault and to take the seat out/in takes less than half an hour. You won't get real mpg figures until its logically run in, usually about 10k miles.,
It went in last week - they spent 5 1/2 hours on it - took out both seats, rear seat, A pillar and B pillar trim, door sill moulding, centre console, floor based air ducts, carpet and under floor covering. After they took it for a spin round the block and established that I wasn't fibbing, they looked under the floor with an endoscope, and saw that it wasn't something I'd dropped down there (I did tell them I hadn't) and it was in fact a loose seat-belt mounting bolt rolling around..... anyway, they stripped the car, retrieved the bolt and checked all the mountings to find that all mine were in place and that the bolt was a spare / accidentally dropped one in the factory. They put it all back together, gave it a full valet and topped up all my fluids. They didn't apologise for doubting me, but did look a bit sheepish when they explained what it was. Still, had a new demo A4 Avant to drive round in as a courtesy car for the day, so no harm done :) I dread to think how much they would have charged me if they weren't doing it under warranty...

Has anyone had any previous issues where the car is waiting for shipment to the UK? Mine was built 31/10/2022 and was called off from factory stock to Transport on 01/11/2022 however I am told it is still awaiting shipment to the UK. Has anyone had any similar time frames? A month seems like an incredible amount of time just to wait for shipping.
Thanks in advance :)

I got annoyed when I was told mine was still waiting for a ship in Mexico but it turned out it was actually waiting for a ship in Germany.

My order went in on the system 4th April and it is due to arrive with me on 9th December.

According to the dealer it was built in week 39 (September 26th) and arrived at the supplying dealer on the 21st November so just over 8 weeks from factory to dealer.

I think it takes about 2 months to go from build to then be ready for collection.

My Q5 55 TFSIe was built on 03/10/2022 and I'm going to collect it from Audi tomorrow.

Given that your car has to go from Mexico to Germany to the UK and the finally to the dealership, I'd say you've got about another 4 weeks until you'll be able to get your car.

I've only had three emails since my order was placed. Order placed on 11th April 2022. At time of order, estimated delivery date was 30th September.
First email from Audi was from the Factory on 9th August 22, telling me that it was 'in build' and was about to start the build phase. Second email from Audi was on 25th August telling me the final checks had been done, and that it would soon be leaving the Factory. Third email was today, telling me it was already on a ship from Emden to the UK. So I think it was 5 weeks and 1 day from when they told me the build had finished to being on a ship to the UK. Have checked with my dealer and he has told me it will land in the UK tomorrow, and they expect it at the dealership on or around Tues 12th to Thurs 14th October. I'm collecting it on Saturday 15th October.
So -
Order > build start - about 14 weeks.
Build time / time in factory - about 2 weeks
Leave Factory > Emden - about 4.5 weeks
Emden > UK > to me - about 2 weeks.

So - 'In Build' email to collection date - 9 weeks and 4 days.
Hope this helps :)
Thanks once again for this post, mattbrx.

My Q5 journey has been pretty much exactly the same (10 weeks and 1 day from the 'In Build' email to collection date) so a good indication for other people.
