Passed a transporter full of q3s this afternoon - heading south on the a1 near Harrogate - if you've ordered White sline with 19in wheels or a black one with the fan blade wheels you could be in luck!!!!
OK I've been quiet on here for a while (something to do with a new baby). It certainly seems a long time since the first posts... but at long last I'm picking up the Q3 S-line 2.0 TDI tomorrow. Daytona Grey, a few extras dotted around.
I ordered on approx the 2nd day of the books being open (25th June), so only the six-and-a-bit month wait then...
Like most of you, firm information has been very difficult to come by. The dealer has been very pleasant but just seemingly in the dark about anything Q3-related. They did loan us an A6 for free since November though, as we would have been without a car when the baby arrived otherwise, having sold the old (unsuitable two-seater!) car to make way for the Q3.
I'm confident it will have been worth the wait, and I'll try to post some photos this weekend. Hope everyone's orders and experiences are as short and pleasant as possible from now on.
Q3 runs very smoothly and is pretty quick. Shifts up and down the s-tronic gearbox very well, also used the paddle shift on the steering wheeel and liked that for dropping down gears. Cruise control is similar to bmw. Loaded up music to an SDHC card and was quite cool to see album covers on display. Not tried phone yet, but all in so far, very impressed.
