OK ... I know some European customers have their delivery dates coming through ... and UK customers (certainly the initial 300-400 orders) should expect their delivery dates to start coming through this week.

So, following this bit of information and a suggestion for this thread ... as you hear of your build date ... and if you are prepared to, please can you make a simple one line post in this thread (see the example below) ... there is another thread here to discuss your thoughts on UK delivery dates ... so please do not begin discussions in here ... if you want to discuss delivery dates for another country, please start an appropriate thread ... thank you.

I will update the list in this post as and when I have time ... it is hoped this may quickly build up a picture of what way R8s are being delivered ... i.e. by initial deposit date, by date of specification, or for the UK by area/region ... I will order the list here based on initial deposit date ... which I suspect is what we would all like to see.

Please can each member who is prepared to detail the following ... as a single line post in this thread ...

Username - Initial Deposit Date (Month and Year) - Order / Specification Date (Day Month Year) - Country - County/Region/State - Delivery Date (Day Month Year)

Example:

Audi Uk notified dealers on Tuesday evening of initial customer delivery dates ... well when I say dates I mean the quarter that customers can expect delivery ... well, can expect delivery subject to final date confirmation in the coming weeks/months.

Hi there - spoke to my dealer last night, and here are the details:

Tim - Jan 2006 - 21 Dec 2006 - UK - London - Q4 2007

Can't help but feel slightly dissapointed, this is later than I'd ever got the impression it would be, and I don't think Jan 06 deposit puts me behind *that* many people... I'd guess that 350 cars to customers in 07 has got to be quite inaccurate really... Any other opinions out there?

Information is as bad here in France as you seem to be suffering - at least the wait for cars does not seem so bad. So the information is as follows

Interest made in May 2006, Deposit increased and car specc'd in Sep 06 and car due early Q3. My other order in UK I have canceled and added an order for a Spyder / Targa in France.

geffers - sep06 - jan07 - uk york - Q1 08

info available on specs and ability to change still hopeless!

only saving grace is the dealer has never asked me for more than a grand or was it £1500 deposit? Seriously thinking about cancelling my order and just going for a 997 turbo.

Just chased my dealer up regarding delivery dates etc. He was in Germany last week driving it, hence the delay in letting me know (apparently).

JampoTT - Deposit June '06 - Spec Jan '07 - Herts - Delivery Q1 '08

Absolutely gutted. I was anticipating an early Q4 delivery. October or at the latest for my b'day in November.

That I won't get it until 2008 almost makes me question whether I want one - I was anticipating being able to own the car for a period of time without suffering excessive depreciation - but I'll be getting my car in about a year's time (!) which will be a good 7+ months after the first cars are delivered in the UK. So much for having something "new" and "exciting" - it'll be old hat by the time mine gets off the boat, and it certainly won't command the same level of "cred" that it would if delivered in 2007.

I know it sounds really stuck-up and snobbish, but we'd all be lying if we didn't admit that part of the reason we want this car is for the image.

I happen to like shiny new toys. There won't be much shiny and new about the R8 in Q1 2008. It could be as late as March, which is virtually 12 months from now.

The only saving grace - if I put my cash down in June '06, yet can't get a car until 2008, it will still take some time for supply and demand to balance out... but even so. I will NOT want to keep seeing R8s on the road, knowing that mine is a year away, despite me putting a deposit down way before the unveiling.

Thanks Audi.

How does that work then? Other people with deposits down prior to August 2006 are getting Q4 2007 and Q1 2008 cars.

That doesn't make any sense to me, considering how Audi said the allocations would work.

Paul,

I have now been confirmed a beginning of August delivery, can only presume that my prodcution will be just before the summer holiday shutdown for one month. Make what you can of this, their is no logic !!!!!!!
