I assume it's the same for all clothing or bespoke tailoring in the UK to take 2 weeks vacation for Christmas. My order for a waistcoat from Bookster is on order and it states on their site 8-10wks due to backorders from the holiday, normally 6-8wks. My 1st order from CJ took 3/4wks to arrive, had the order corrected due to miscommunication and 3wks later the other pair arrived, for hand traced machine sewn. Through it all they replied within 1 day as another poster...
Check out fantasywaistcoats in the UK. They can send samples of colors you're interested in. I have a bronze sample that I'll have made into a proper stiff interlined ascot at a local place.

Got the replacement pair, and both are side/side. They're buttery smooth and smell even better. One pair is darker grey than the other. Unlined chamois. Outside seams VS inside seams. Inside fit really tight and look much better, while outside seams feel smooth while the hand is in the glove, but I don't like the lumpy look.

Mine came with the same stitching and button, but in frigate grey chamois. Very soft sort of suede . But I don't like the outside type of stitching and had them make me another pair with the seams hidden on the inside of the glove. Can't stand anything other than a smooth look. Still waiting to get them before the 20th.
Found the review, while searching for the A6 2.7T, he on a Cayenne now. http://www.kenrockwell.com/bmw/540.htm

That's the other point, less complicated, easier to fix/upgrade(older Audi suto can't handle much above 350/400ftlb for people who go stage 3 with the twin turbo), and no damn routine fluid changes. Lifetime fluid my ass.

Check out the vwvortex.com forums, Call the dealer and ask about maint. costs for each engine. Not sure on the TT side, but know the timing belt job for the 3.0L far outweighs all other engines, 4.2, 2.7, 1.8. But I think the TT only came with 1.8, 2.0, 3.2 now. For the Volvo 300HP, I think...
