new S4 delivery schedules??

I just called Audi Finland today regarding the S4's I've ordered.
Apparently the cars, originally slated for March/April production, will now
come from July/August production.  No problem yet, my customer is happy to
wait and the other I've ordered in for stock.  I'm just interested if there
is a production shortage or a problem, or is Finland getting the shaft?

BTW, the whole country is getting around 15 of these beauties and 10 TT
coupes this year (total psgr car market approx.115 000 units, Audi share
target 1.8%), and it looks like I'll get 20% of them with the two TT Coupes
already ordered and two of three S4 orders in.  No big deal, except they
cost around a USD 100 000 here, which is the going rate for a house, or
anywhere from 5 to 10 yrs of takehome pay for the average guy.

The average age of a car on our roads is now ten years.
