Default 2015 Model Year Ordering

Does anyone know when you can start ordering 2015 model year A7's? When did they start taking 2014 orders last year?

Already leaving us (2012s)?
Keep your car, the first a7 will be the classic model in 30 years

It varies by year and model but typically dealers can take "official" orders around three or four months before first arrivals once the price sheets become available. The C7s have usually started arriving in early July the last couple of years so perhaps orders can be placed by late March or early April. Of course, this can change year to year.

Hahaha. Need 3 seats in the back now. The dealership said it's easier to get a 2013+ than retrofit it. Lots of liability issues with seatbelts being involved.

Thanks! I still haven't heard too much info on the 2015 refresh - hopefully it starts trickling in soon.

Regarding that I was wondering if I can change the center plastic thing for a padded one in case a fifth passenger shows up, honesty who uses the seatbelt in the rear around town?
Even the cops don't care

Not a bad idea, but I don't know how comfortable any conversions like that would be for longer rides. I'd also prefer to have the seat-belt hooks there for a baby car seat.

I do and would insist that all passengers do, too.

I have my daughter's with the isofix/latch hooks that are in each seat, unless you want to put the carseat in the middle, or you need 3 carseats
I don't think newer A7 would be really comfortable for longer rides in the center seat (I think the only difference in the seats besides the plastic console vs leather is the seatbelt) , I just wanted to have an option for those rare occasions there is a 5th person you need to give a ride around town

If you are driving with that fifth passenger in back w/o a seat belt, be sure to lean to the left if you come to a sudden stop.

It is just for small trips around town, highway is another story. I am not saying is the right thing to do, and I am not intending to have a fifth passenger on a regular basis, I am not the only who does it, not many people fasten the seatbelt in the back, look around in a red light or when you take a cab. Just trying to replace that plastic thing (that is useless because is not a nice center console like in the A8 ) with something "more" practical

Aquarian's thread has a picture of the rear seat. It shouldn't be too hard to add the leather insert.

http://forums.audiworld.com/showthread.php?t=2840558

There are three or four sellers on eBay that are parting out A7's. They don't list odd items so you have to find them by searching for more common parts such as calipers, headlights, tail lights, etc.. Ask them if they have the three person rear seat.

I talked to a shop about this, but nobody wants to touch modifications that are seat-belt related. Having worked in the auto insurance world before - I can also say that modifying a 4-car vehicle to be a 5-car vehicle can result in denied claims (especially for liability). For peace of mind, I'd rather just upgrade to a car that has the 5 seats there already. Still debating between the 2015 A7 & Porsche Macan though.

When it comes to seat belts, no one rides in my car without them being fastened, period. I'm responsible for their safety.

I don't care about a 5th passenger - but I would like to see a nice leather /wood center console in the back rather than the ugly plastic one they use.

Ok now picture this
You are in NYC and you are late for a really important dinner (anniversary and wife is REALLY MAD and waiting for you) and you stop a cab and get in the back and tell the guy where you are going (5 blocks away) and the cab driver doesn't move, when you ask the guy to go he tells you "sir I am not moving until you fasten your seatbelt I am responsible for your safety"
Would you
1 tell the driver it is your business if you want to put the seatbelt on or not?
2 thank the driver for reminding you of that imminent deadly hazard?
3 (bonus answer) that will never happen because even you are in a rush and face an ugly and slow death in hands of your mad wife, you would put the seatbelt on as soon as you get in the back of the car (tip: this is the right answer even if it is not true)

Seriously? My car is not a public conveyance for hire. I've experienced first hand the result of a passenger not having their seatbelt fastened in an accident where a car pulled out in front of me and it wasn't pretty. Fortunately, the emergency room wasn't far away and it only took 12 stitches to close his head wound from hitting the windshield from the rear seat. You want to ride in my car, you fasten your seat belt. Simple as that. Others are free to waive that requirement in theirs.

April allocation should be 2015 orders for early Aug delivery. There's always a little bit of variance in availability of each model.

Dealers get their allocation towards the latter part of the month.
