Anyone take advantage of the Audi factory delivery program? If so, how was it? Also, do they offer defined package European drive and stay packages, such as BMW? I find the Audi website a bit confusing re the package deal(s).
Thinking we might seek such a delivery on a new V-10 if we can get a viable build slot.

Do you have to pay for it or is it in leiu of the delivery charges like Mercedes ?

If it's a cost option, how much ?

Unfortunately you pay standard UK delivery charges PLUS £500. The £500 fee covers:-

-Chauffeur transfer from the airport.

-Factory and museum tour.

-Lunch and refreshments.

-Handover (at factory)

-Full PDI (at factory)

-Temporary fully comprehensive insurance and international registration

-European Breakdown assistance

-Limited edition R8 factory Collect Collection book

-Optional, subsidised Audi UK luggage set.

You can buy thetwo piece luggage set at £180 (as far as I can remember), instead of the usual £350 or £400.

The tank was supplied full, so that's £90 worth in any event. The lunch was in their restaurant and was first class.

Was it worth it ? For me, yes it was. When I got back to UK, my dealer then did another full PDI, topped up with oil and supplied the UK plates.
