FFS really, did the factory forget to order them in?

I'm not good at waiting as it is.

I've got the digital cockpit as well but my dealer confirmed yesterday that I'm still scheduled for week 40. It's a mystery.

Corresponded with my salesman this morning who confirmed that there was a slippage of around two weeks, which he's looking into, but nothing like what the genie had indicated yesterday. I'm looking at end Oct delivery now...tbc. He discouraged me from contacting the genie service as they don't have access to the same systems/info as the dealerships, apparently.

My dealer confirmed my production had been moved back to december but he was trying to get it brought forward to November (can he do that?). No reason given though.

I think dealers get a limited number of build slots for different models which might be why your dealer is saying that they might be able to bring your order forward
All rather frustrating - would be nice to have a definitive delivery date, and in our case, some plausible reasons for delays. I'd also love to be able to trust my dealer but I'm not convinced he's any better informed that the genius team.

It's starting to leave a bad taste in my mouth, after all the excitement and being told it's been brought forward to be told it's now delayed is a piss take.

My production/delivery week from the genius team has gone from 40/43 to 45/48 to 44/47 in the space of one week. My dealer originally told me that the car would be delivered mid-October and is now telling me its arriving at the end of October, which is week 43. One thing is certain - there's a delay. Best not to obsess about it... yeh, right

God knows why they don't let you track this stuff on-line as Audi do with a factory order.
