So I saw that the RS5 guys that ordered have a thread that is dedicated for ordering their cars. In that thread, they post up their commission numbers and one of the members runs the numbers periodically and posts the updates accordingly.

http://www.audizine.com/forum/showthread.php/483653-List-your-RS5-commission-number-so-I-can-track-it-for-you!

So, my question is this...can we have a thread like that? Can the people that ordered 2013's post up there commission numbers and can we have someone run them and update this thread? That would be beyond awesome!

Just my .002

Best wishes,

Andrew

Shipping Guide from VW

that PWL PDF (http://www.pwl.de/static/schedules/vwl_hb.pdf)

This is a quick guide that Stereodude gave to me from AW. Hope this helps!


THERE IS NO NEED TO RUN A COM NUMBER EVERY OTHER DAY OR EVERY WEEK FOR THAT MATTER!

First and foremost. Allocation is granted on the 14-15th of every month. If your dealer is granted Allocation the system will automatically pull the order into the "Factory Order Bank" according to how the dealer has the order ranked in his system. If there are 5 orders he must rank them first through fifth.

Allocation is different for model line. For example a dealer can get 1 manual and 1 automatic. Same goes for the S5.

Once a car is in "Production stock" assume at least 30-40 days before it will go into the next status, which would be "Intransit from Factory" from there it will be another two weeks. At this point the vehicle will have a VIN# and will be submitted for customs clearance. When the vehicle arrives at your countries port of entry, (we have several in the US). It will be marked "Port Stock" From there it will either be trucked (2-10 days based on location)or railed and then trucked (14-17 days)

The next status is (you guessed it) Dealer Stock. This means, the dealer has the car in its inventory and it can be prepped and delivered to the customer.

Thanks, I appreciate it! I'm curious to see if it matches what my SA told me a few weeks ago. So far as I know my S4 should be getting close to shipping/loading on the boat on July 2nd and be available to me around July 30th at the dealer.

Not sure what data is relevant or private. Anyone know what this date actually means? Is that the date it's schedule to ship or is that the date it's scheduled to arrive? I'm hoping that the "Intransit From Factory" means it's already on the boat and that is my arrival date.

Interesting. I placed the order back in April, but maybe because I made a slight change to my order from 18's to 19's, I was put in the back of the line??

Understood perfectly. Thank you very much for translating the numbers, etc. I really appreciate it. I'm very happy to hear that 7/13 is the expected arrival date. I'm guessing the car comes to port in New Jersey for a Mass delivery?

I placed my order on April 13th and then changed my color from Glacier White to Estoril blue on April 16th and it didn't seem to affect things. I don't think that's how the system works. If you had a commission number for your original order, I don't think it pushes you back in line, but I could be wrong.

It's very possible the dealer you ordered from didn't have a slot allocation for you until now. Did you get a commission number early on?

Something doesn't seem right then, if it's just showing as being entered now. You might want to call and get a clarification from your dealer. With an order on April 9th, you should be one of the first people to be getting theirs from a custom order. When did you request a change to your order? It's possible if a significant amount of time went by between when you placed your order, maybe something happened bumping you back?

Change to the order was made on May 21st. It was simply to add the 19" wheels. That's it.

Left a message for the dealer...stay tuned.

If your change request was that far into the order timeline, it's possible they had to push things back or maybe they reordered, but I don't know the process that well. If they reordered, I would have expected a different commission number so I wouldn't guess that to be the case. I would have suspected your car would have been in (or close to) production by May 21st when you put in the change request. I hope they can clarify it for you, that would really suck to have to wait 3 months from this point considering you ordered as early as was possible.

For those who want to get a little crazy and track your vehicle once it hits the ship, go to Peter Lampke Schedules (http://www.pwl.de/en/schedules) scroll to the bottom where you see VOLKSWAGEN Logistics, click on the PDF. A PDF will pop up with a few ship names with the expected date of port arrival. Then follow that ship name on Marine Traffic (http://marinetraffic.com/ais/) and you would know when your car is arriving. Good Luck and special thanks to the team at the RS5 thread for the help and useful information.

I'm all about getting a little crazy. [:D] So, per that PWL PDF (http://www.pwl.de/static/schedules/vwl_hb.pdf) my S4 is on the Neptune Ace arriving at the port in Davisville, RI on 6/25 (unless they ship US cars through Halifax).

That could be the destination just before going to Davisville, RI. The locations are not far apart, so a quick stop there and then I guess it could make it to RI by 6/25.

Looks like mine will be on the Cougar Ace (http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/shipdetails.aspx?mmsi=563329000) that will arrive at the same port as yours in Davisville, RI on 7/13 (which is the same date reported to my by my SA at Audi). Currently the ship is located just off the coast of Florida. Last port was in Huston TX and it says the next destination is Brunswick GA. Edit, after reading the PDF a little closer, it looks like my boat is heading to Emden Germany for July 2nd. That date matches what my SA told me. I think I know where the boat is heading.

My boat also says it's headed to Brunswick GA but it sailed right on past it during last night and today. Now it's just kind of hovering off the coast of New York and a bit below Rhode island. I don't get it either. Maybe the destinations are screwed up.

Separately, if the Neptune Ace is now headed for GA instead of RI, does that mean it was diverted or is the schedule simply incorrect? Are some Northeast cars delivered through GA. . . . or is it solely through RI?

Strange, I'll look at my order and see what might be missing. If I can't find it I'll email my SA and see if he knows what the "9ZW" and "MI" are. I was assuming they would all just line up nicely with the options listed on the order sheet.

Thanks for looking this up!Mine has 9ZW & AMI.

9ZW is in the UK brochure as:
Mobile telephone preparation – High with Audi connect. A mobile phone can be connected to the internal UMTS (3G) module via Bluetooth (provided the mobile telephone has SIM Access Profile), or alternatively through the additional SIM card reader. It is possible to transfer phone book entries to the car and manage call lists. Audi connect features include: navigation using Google Earth images and Google Street View, destination entry via Google Maps or myAudi, online point of interest search and information services such as weather forecasts and the latest world news. Audi connect also includes Audi traffic information online, which gives accurate real-time forecasts of the traffic situation along the chosen route. The traffic situation can be displayed on the navigation map or Google Earth image. Audi connect can also create a Wi-Fi hotspot in the car for convenient internet access using a mobile device (e.g. laptop or tablet). Many Audi connect features can be simply operated via MMI Navigation Plus, the multi-function steering wheel or the voice control system. Only in combination with Technology package – High or Advanced (WB6 or PCB) Reportedly AMI is the Audi Music Interface, but that has a code of UF7 001 in the UK brochure (with an iPod cable and USB cable). It might be the code for the standard iPod cable, or the Audi music interface + iPod cable.

yeah tell me about it, I've been having dreams about driving this car lol he said since the order was changed on the last possible day to make changes it may have offset the build by a short period of time. But since its registered as a customer sold order it won't be too long before it goes into production. should be in the port first week of August and in transit to the dealer from the RI port somewhere between August 8-12 and it will be delivered to me about a week after that. They have specific requests NOT to detail the car and NOT to have the car in the show room. Im picky lol

For those who want to get a little crazy and track your vehicle once it hits the ship, go to Peter Lampke Schedules (http://www.pwl.de/en/schedules) scroll to the bottom where you see VOLKSWAGEN Logistics, click on the PDF. A PDF will pop up with a few ship names with the expected date of port arrival. Then follow that ship name on Marine Traffic (http://marinetraffic.com/ais/) and you would know when your car is arriving. Good Luck and special thanks to the team at the RS5 thread for the help and useful information.

SO I've been trackng the Marina Ace, which makes me a little crazy, I guess. Anyhow, my observation is: give these boats some turbos already! They're too slow, I can't imagine 51.3k tons making that much of a difference [mad]

Set something up very loosely to come by and check one out. I arrived in my very stylish 2003 Chevy Malibu LS and didn't get any attitude or derogatory treatment from Jay. Very polite and helpful. You've got me why it's not consistent. [confused]

The dealership sent me an email yesterday that my car is on-track for delivery at the end of July. However, I called him to review the lease terms for 2013. For a 2013 Premium Plus, 36 months at 12,000 miles per year, the residual was 56% and the money factor .00141. I expected the 2013 numbers to be less attractive than what the 2012s were at before this new refresh, but the MF basically doubled. Is this consistent with what others have seen on the 2013 lease terms?

Given that it matches the numbers from June from here : http://www.ridewithg.com/index.php/2012/06/2012-13-audi-lease-rates-june-2012/ - that's probably what you will get from AFS.

1200 under invoice, seems too good to be true on a 13. Obviously_real_ dealer cost is below invoice, but unless they're marking up the MF I don't know how they are making money with 1200 below accepted (truecar) invoice.

I think the fact that the order sheets show "Invoice" price is a scam in itself... It is obviously there to trick consumers into thinking they are getting better deals. Everyone here is walking away smiling after dropping 55,000 dollars. The dealerships I'm sure have bigger shit eating grins. Well done Audi!

- I realize we get jammed way harder in Canada, but there is still less bullshit.

1200 under invoice, seems too good to be true on a 13. Obviously_real_ dealer cost is below invoice, but unless they're marking up the MF I don't know how they are making money with 1200 below accepted (truecar) invoice.

i think people are mistaking invoice with MSRP

Looking up the vehicle on TrueCar, the invoice is $45,570 + $4,070 options + $918 regional ad fees + $895 destination fees = $51,453. The offer from the dealer is $49,973.

I don't think people are mistaking invoice and MSRP. My S4 will be arriving in a couple days and I am buying it for $1,500 under invoice, not MSRP.

I do, however, believe it's a bit of a scam, to be honest. I have had two dealers fight for my business and offer me this price. Well it's more like a competing dealership offered and the one that I had been working with matched it... but either way, there must still be more room then just "invoice" because I have heard of several people getting deals pretty close to the deal I am getting. Plus, it seems like most dealerships are willing to sell at just $500 over invoice.

There must be something the consumers don't know. I can't believe their incentives are really THAT amazing, leads me to believe the invoice prices listed on the order guide aren't true invoice....

Well I think we all know invoice isn't really dealer cost. There are a number of things that go into what a dealer really pays, but it's safely below "invoice." A lot also goes into the agreed upon price, are they making some on the back end of your trade? Did they mark up the MF? Do they hit you with inflated ad and doc fees? Do you have a good long term relationship with your dealer? etc... No dealer is going to do an overall deal that will result in a loss, especially on a high demand [refreshed] new vehicle. If you can't see how they could possibly offer you a certain price, they are definitely making up for it elsewhere. That being said, I would definitely agree $500 over invoice (usually in the 6% off MSRP range) seems achievable in most markets, and some people do better.

Hello everyone

I am new to the forum. I just placed an order for a 2013 S4 last week, 7/10. I talked with the dealer today and they said that it is now in factory order bank. I was reading through some other threads and saw that it can take 1-3 weeks for it to change to production.

I was just curious to see what everyone's experience was in terms of time. Has everyone pretty much waited around 90 days to get their car or have some people received it in 60?? This is my first new car purchase and I think the waiting is going to be harder than I thought!!

Definitely not easy. Best advice is to keep yourself as busy as possible. As for timing, here's my experience in booking my 2013 S4 in monsoon grey (Canadian order):

Booked: May 19, 2012

Upon booking, I was told to expect delivery around mid-August. Got an email from my SA telling me to now expect delivery end of July. So, likely about 2.5 months is the wait.

SA Placed order June 15th (had to wait for allocation)
i'm told Sep 17th or so delivery.

That allocation wait time really screwed me. Wish i knew it would be so long before ordering, but i was under the impression allocation would be available that following weekend

Yeah the build time itself doesn't take long. It's whether you got the order into the right allocation timing and the shipping which takes long.

This.

Though I doubt you will get it ever in 60 days. You might get it in ten weeks, depends on when you catch the dealership's allocation.

My car is supposed to arrive at port on 07/27 as per the tracking page dealer sent me. It should be coming in to Baltimore port (I presume cause dealer is in MD). The scheduled dealer delivery is for week of 8/6. Anyone know if that time frame is realistic. As in how long does it take to get from port to dealer? I heard 1 to 2 weeks and I am hoping since dealer is close to port that it is the former.

My initial ETA was 8/30 but that it went to 07/30 and now its back to 8/6. I am hoping it doesn't get delayed again. I am counting hours here....

BTW, anyone one know what AFS changes their monthly rates. I was expecting July no. but it seems now I will be making the final deal in Aug. When do those come out????

My best information is that they're usually in port about 10 days - like clockwork. I'll be surprised if your dealership has it 3 days after port. Mine got to port 7/15 and still isn't at the dealership yet, and the port is only about 4-5 hours drive time away.

my dealer told me 8/6 for port date...i am only assuming that the car is on that boat as it just left emden. Now the boats ETA is 8/2. who knows?? I get back from florida 8/11 so i don't really care if it is ready before that, i'd prefer afar so I can get it right away! So ill assume ill be picking it up on the 17th which is a friday.

From what I have seen that VW schedule is way off. The only way (from what I see) that you could really see if that was true was to track the port on 7/13 and see what ship had a destination of Davisville. But then again I just started doing this so there is probably a more efficient way of doing it.

EDIT: you could be on Onyx Ace which departed Emden on 7/15 and is due in to Davisville today, 8/25.

I found out how it arrived so quick. I emailed my salesman to check if it arrived in port about 3 hours after the boat arrived. He said the car was listed as IN PORT so he marked it as sold and put a rush order in, and it got on one of the first trucks to FL.

Car is really nice. It is specced similar to autoluxe's except it is S-tronic, black, black/silver Nappa, Prestige, Carbon Atlas, 19" Peelers, Sports Diff. No pics yet because I was too busy teaching my mother in law how to use all the controls.

My car arrived at port Brunswick GA on 7/26. However it has not moved since. Port hold end is blank and Release to carrier switched from 8/1 to 8/2 and now 8/6 (today). My SA told me it was released to trucking today but again status doesn't reflect that. My ETA went from "week of 8/6" to "week of 8/13".

Obviously I am really sad to see that happen. Anyone in a similar boat (no pun intended)? SA said that car could be here later this week... but then again, he says whatever I want to hear. the car is marked as customer sold but I don't know if that would really help get it shipped faster. Dealer is in MD. Does anyone know if AOA estimates are pretty accurate. Should I expect the car this week of next?

Got some good news on my order yesterday. Originally delivery was supposed to be "November," which got moved up to 10/29 "at the latest." I got a voicemail yesterday from my salesperson saying now delivery has been moved up to 10/15 "at the latest," probably 7-10 days before that. Is anyone still able to run commission numbers? I'd really like to try to figure out what boat my car is going to be on.

Incidentally - and Murphy's Law said this was going to happen - if the car arrives prior to 10/15, of course I'm going to be on a family vacation that's been scheduled for months. It kills me to think the car might have to sit at the dealer for a few days to a week. Do I need to worry that they will let anyone else drive it, etc.?

Congrats, and I had the same thing happen. I got called from my SA that the car arrived at the dealership just as I was an hour into my vacation trip. It sat at the dealership for a little more than a week. As far as I can tell, they didn't let other customers drive it, but there is no way I can be sure. My car had 19 miles on it which helps me believe that very few drove it before I got it.

Got some good news on my order yesterday. Originally delivery was supposed to be "November," which got moved up to 10/29 "at the latest." I got a voicemail yesterday from my salesperson saying now delivery has been moved up to 10/15 "at the latest," probably 7-10 days before that. Is anyone still able to run commission numbers? I'd really like to try to figure out what boat my car is going to be on.

Incidentally - and Murphy's Law said this was going to happen - if the car arrives prior to 10/15, of course I'm going to be on a family vacation that's been scheduled for months. It kills me to think the car might have to sit at the dealer for a few days to a week. Do I need to worry that they will let anyone else drive it, etc.?

Thats great news! When did you place your order? I put mine in July 10th and when I checked last month they said end of Oct delivery.

August 15. I almost feel guilty saying that, because I know others have much longer waits. When I went in to do the order, they said there were 2 allocations for South Louisiana for the rest of the year, and if I ordered before the end of August, I'd have the car before the end of the year. Since then, obviously, they've been consistently exceeding my expectations.

I'd still love to have someone run the commission number if anyone here can do that.

No need to feel guilty...hopefully it means less time waiting for all of us. It could be possible that your dealer already had an order in the system and then changed it to your specs. I know there are a couple of people that work for Audi on this board that have ran commission numbers in the past. From what I understand, only the ordering dealer can see a full list of production dates. If someone else ran your commission number they can see where you are right now.

Interesting. Mine was ordered on Aug 20. A recent status check shows it is expected to arrive the last week of Oct. This is a lot sooner than I expected.

Ordered mine the last week of July and was originally told late Sept. or early Oct. Got an update via email from my SA last week stating car was now expected to arrive late Oct. When we ordered my wife's A4 two years ago they initially said three months but then the car showed up in less than two. SA said they changed one of their previous existing (stock) orders so the car got done sooner. Doesn't look like that's happening this time around and I've already sold my 04 S4 in anticipation.

Wow.

Went to place an order today, 6MT/Glacier White/B&O/Sports Diff...had them agree to 500 over invoice.

So excited, it's been my dream car for years now and I can finally afford it.

But apparently this is a 'strange' order (because it doesn't have nav?) and they wanted a 5k deposit. Admittedly the salesperson felt bad because it was the managers call. I argued them down to 3k, but then said screw it. Hopefully I have better luck at a different dealership.

I have a message into my SA for clarification, but maybe someone could help me think through this. I am in Louisiana and as I understand it, our cars come through Houston. The dealer on more than one occasion has said, "we are often the truck's first stop" out of port. They told me 10/15 at the latest, "probably 7-10 days before." Based on the truck transit time of 2-10 days on the first page of this thread, I would assume that they think the car will be loaded on the truck on/about 10/5.

What I'm trying to figure out is, working back from a date of being released from port on 10/5, could this mean the car is actually already built and maybe already released to the carrier? It looks like the ships take about 2.5 weeks to reach Houston, so wouldn't this mean that my car would have to be on a ship sometime within about a week?

(Unfortunately the VW Logistics schedule is not updated beyond the Seven Seas Highway departure on 8/31, so it's hard to get a sense for what boats are a possibility...)

I just got my VIN. I'm assuming that means the vehicle is built... Anyone know how I can figure out the tentative shipping and delivery dates/schedules?

Awesome, thanks! Per your note above, your SA should be able to tell you your ship load date. Their system shows them either an estimate or an actual date. I finally connected with my SA yesterday, and she was able to give me all the details over the phone in a matter of a few minutes.

Apparently the system is scheduled to update on Monday. My car went into production on 9/4 and has an estimated ship load date of 9/20 which would put it on the infamous Cougar Ace. But my SA says she bets it will be here earlier, so who knows. I'm either on the Marina Ace, which left Emden earlier this week, or will be on the Shanghai Highway or Cougar Ace. Should know for sure on Monday. Thanks again for posting this.

Does anyone on here have access to the Canadian ordering system? I contacted my SA and he mentioned that my car is in production as week speak and won't be shipped til Mid-October. Just want to make sure I am not getting the run around.

Thanks.

The Shanghai Highway just left Emden within the last hour or so... hoping my car might have made that boat. Apparently my SA is out until tomorrow, so I'll have to wait at least another day to find out the specific vessel.

The Nippon Highway is docked at Emden. Looks like my car will be on it, based on the most recent update from my SA. GoNavy, did you confirm your car will be on the same boat?

Started going to dealers about 3 weeks ago. One dealer found a car based on my specs already on a boat. In port RI 9/26. Expected date
at dealer week of 10/8. So nice to not have the long wait. Dealer not that savvy with tracking. Any way to track and get updates on line?
