That's a bit unlucky but they have announced an add-on for all Q3's which can be added to the existing setup to give them DAB. You could maybe ask for this to be added foc but i would want it to be as integrated as when it comes from the factory!
Is the price the same for week22 onwards cars, they may increase the price like bmw did?
Finally got a reply from the dealership a few weeks back regarding the DAB issue after expressing my displeasure at having to pay for the Option. Surprisingly enough they agreed that it was unfair and have agreed to let me have it FOC !
Anyway the car is now built and awaiting shipping , with delivery expected late May.
Took delivery of my Q3 0n Tues 16th July. I wanted DAB radio but was told at time of ordering that it was not available. I am now concerned that during 2015 the SAT Nav won't work properly. Can anyone tell me if this equipment can be fitted retrospectively?
Well, to start with Audi have indicated that DAB will be available for retrofit when they've sorted themselves out, so worry not.
Next, as mentioned in other threads, the govmint is NOT turning off analogue radio in 2015 - the idea has been shelved indefinitely as it had been met with a tumultuous burst of total apathy and takeup of DAB is way lower than expected.
Er... why would the SAT/NAV fail to work during 2015? As far as I know there isn't any apocalyptic event scheduled for that year (apart from my 64th birthday, that is) so I'm at a loss to understand why you're worried about it.
