We continue to grow and will be the first luxury car manufacturer in India to surpass sales of 10,000 units in a calendar year. The response to our brand and products has been remarkable and we do not want to be lacking in our efforts in any way in reaching out to Audi enthusiasts in this region. The inauguration of Audi Mangalore is yet another step in this direction.

Good for Audi and Mangalorians. I heard they had troubles while unloading cars from truck due to lack of ramp and did some weird "stunts" to try to unload them. Any information on this?

Woah, if that is the way folks at Mangalore "Unload' a Q3, I can only imagine the Plight & Sight of a Q7 !!


I honestly hope, this was only for the Starters and they would not try these tricks going forward, which might leave the customers with a Paycheck in hand and Heart in mouth !!

Whats all the drama about? I fail to see how the tow truck nearly 'Destroys' an audi with its stunts.

This is quite professional as compared to what we get to see. Most of them usually use some makeshift ramp outta planks and gunny bags filled with mud/sand.

Apparently the dealer couldnt make a ramp in front of the place as the building was already constructed long back and they didnt have permission for the ramp.

Im waiting to see how the JLR guys load/unload their vehicles!

Cheers!

That was a temporary solution they came up with due to lack of ramps.
I'm sure Audi Mangalore will solve that problem soon.
Cheers
