I am a brand new Audi Q3 owner, awaiting delivery of my car. I have previously owned Hyundais and Toyotas. Delivery is already two weeks late, so I'm feeling some impatience. Am wondering if this is the norm for Audi, and I should just relax already...

I am in the same boat as you - waiting for delivery.
I ordered my Q3 December 9, 2014 and was expecting it late February. That moved to the week of 3/6, and is now looking like 3/24.

Fortunately, my sales rep took pity and gave me a loaner car, since I sold my A4 last week. Since the only car he had was an A7, it is in their best interest to deliver sooner rather than later.

Welcome to the forum, lots of good stuff going on here.
Audi's to me have a ride, road feel and understated elegance that other makes don't.
As far as delivery, mine was ordered the last week of December and arrived at the dealer Wednesday night. Having a look tomorrow and pick it up Monday. This dealer takes a GOOD 2 days to prep its vehicles. As in the past, my salesperson was right on with time frames. So, I'll let others comment on your delay. Have you spoken to your salesperson?

Yes, I have spoken to the dealer. He says "soon", that it is a weather related delay. For what it's worth, every other Audi dealer in my area (Philadelphia) has the same situation.

Welcome, I realize that the wait can be rough but you should have your new Q3 just in time for spring!!! We ordered in late September and didnt get it till Jan 10th, yours coming in the spring is a much better time to get a new car.

Good luck and I hope that you enjoy it!!!:)

Welcome!

Luckily, it is now Spring. So all the weather related problems are over. ;)

Well almost anyway. Up here, we have a good four inches and it's still coming. Should be short lived but glad I got some gas for the snow blower today!
I was kidding about Spring. It had been snowing in the Philly area for a few hours when I posted that. It is just about stopping now with a good 8 inches of the really heavy wet stuff. Since 2kittys2 lives in the Philly area I’m pretty sure today’s weather won’t help her get her new car any sooner.

Go away winter, we don't take kindly to your types around here.

We live in a 55+ and they do all the snow removing, including the driveways.

Hey Bob-

Eight inches and wet? OUCH! Ours is powdery and light. Went to school in the Philly area (seventies) and it was always more mild than my hometown in northern NJ that would have been way more mild than here upstate. There is something to this climate change stuff.

MPBQ3, still like the mountain living and state parks woods just a few feet away. Emergency repairs to a snowblower in February can get old however!

I have the woods right across the street from my house and it's great not worrying about the snow and it's removal.

No. At the time I purchased it I was told it was "on the boat". Then there was a delay attributed to snow in New England. Now I'm just being told "soon". I'm trying to be chill about it but the whole thing doesn't make sense to me - if indeed the car was on the boat in mid-February when I bought it. I could understand it if I bought the car to be made to order, but I found one "on the way" that had everything I want. I guess I just don't understand enough about the logistics of delivering cars from a boat.

There were some delays into Davisville the week before this past. The ship I think mine was on was delayed about three days.
I did see the vehicle today. It was in the beginning stages of prep. The supply on these things seems tight.

2kittys2, if you go to the dealer's website, do you see your vehicle listed as Available Soon?

I am REALLY looking forward to this car.��
I ordered my car on July 27th and it was delivered on November 22, so unfortunately that's about normal for the Q3 - some have gotten much luckier but most orders are in this time frame. The Q3 has been much more successful for Audi than they thought - and deservedly so -:laugh: You'll LOVE you car !!

Quite the wait to be sitting through, but worth it. At least we know that wait is a good sign there's real demand for it!
