Hi all - I've been contemplating ordering a Q4 for some time. Spoke to the dealer last week, and current estimates are 12-24 months lead time.
At this point I wonder if Audi should do what Volvo have done and just stop taking orders for new EVs.

I was told that my deposit (£2000) may not be refundable as they need to see a sign of commitment from me, lol (I suspect this is dealer specific).
What I wanted to know was: if there is a new MY between the time I order and the build date, do I get automatically upgraded?
But more importantly for me: if certain optional features are available again by the time build starts, can I add them without losing my place in queue?

Specifically, I'd like the sunroof. Every other alternative at this level still has one. And you could get one up until the Vorpsrung model was withdrawn on 04/07/22.
I queried AudiUK about it, as you can order the sunroof as an extra in other European countries e.g. go to Audi website in France, Spain, Germany, Italy - you can spec a sunroof today (plus there are other things you can spec that we in the UK can't, such as headlights, separate from the model level).

All I really wanted to know was:
1) Why can other countries still spec the sunroof, but the UK can't? If it is due to a parts shortage, surely that would affect all countries? (I'm guessing it's more to do with demand and which factory the UK cars are built at)
2) If the parts problem eases before my car starts production, can I add the sunroof then without losing my place in the queue?

All AudiUK would tell me is that it's a factory decision.
I did wonder about seeing if I could ask someone at the factory.

Adding my contribution to the thread finally.

After a very long time of being status 0 and “we have no clue when you’ll get your car”, I’m now status 10 with a week 46 build (which was originally 39 or something but got recently pushed they said - probably making way for Vorsprungs!). They said that means latter part of December to the dealer and probably early Jan in reality to me

I know status 10 doesn’t mean all that much but after all this time at status 0, it shows things on the move

Ordered latter part of Nov 2021, so will be 13 months to delivery, if it happens

So Nov 21 order given a Week 34 build week. Sounds good. That’s around 9 months plus extra few weeks to ship the car etc. Other posts seem to indicate lead time of around 13 months.

I ordered in March 22 and still have no build week. I was told Dec 22 to March 2023 at time of order. Really hoping it is closer to December 2022 and does not slip past March 2023

I ordered Feb 22 was told to expect March 23. Still no build date, so realistically, think it will be June/July 23 before I get the car. Majority of manufacturers appear to be having similar issues. Lexus quoted a colleague delivery around next September, if ordered now.

It seems realistic times are 9-12 months from order. When I initially placed the order end oct I was quoted a build week 3!, that soon changed to 16, then 24 then 33 before being confirmed at 34. Dealer indicated that it’s likely to be 4 weeks after arriving with them.
