Audi European delivery is a relatively new program (2006). Audi discounts its models delivered in Europe by five percent off of the MSRP.
You take delivery of the car in Bavaria at the factory in Ingolstadt, a short drive from Munich.
Audi's program provides a free room for one night in a participating four-star hotel; ground transportation between the Munich airport, hotel and factory; International vehicle insurance and registration (for 14 days), drop-off location fees, ground transportation customs duty and clearance, ocean freight and marine insurance, and storage and terminal handling fees.
Check the website for a list of European countries in which the insurance is available.
Audi also picks up the tabs for a full day of meals at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt's Marché restaurant on your delivery day and provides a guided tour of the Audi factory as well as a visit to the Mobile museum.
Audi allows you to end your European trip in one of 17 cities and there is no drop-off fee for any location. There are six drop-off points in Germany and additional options in Belgium, France, Holland, Italy (through special arrangements only and at extra expense), Spain, Switzerland, and United Kingdom. Expect to take final delivery of your car stateside about 11-13 weeks after the drop-off date.
