It was configured by the sales manager for their "inventory". For some reason, there wasn't any invitation by the dealer for any of my input regarding the configuration. I've also been told that there is a "chance" that this configuration can be changed to fit my specifications.

      I was told that it was slated for a July build, which would put its ETA right around late October.
      I was also told that the 2012 pricing will not be availible until July or August.
      My dealer has disclosed my TTRS went into production May 16th. In port early July. Arrive dealer Mid July. Prices might not be disclosed until shortly before delivery to dealer. I'm in No. California.

      I hate to be the one to have to tell you this, but no US TT-RSes have been built yet. The build dates have not even been allocated at this point.

      @ Axel1 - Man that would look SOOOO bad on the TTRS ! Having said that - really interested to see just how bad they do look on the TTRS. Also really interested to see how the US-spec RS' look compared to the ones that come to OZ. After looking around on the German and UK websites and going through the little configurator thing I found that about 90% of their options are standard on the ones that come here. And there's a whole bunch of options that I've never even heard of for out the OZ-spec. I wonder if it is the same situation for you guys??

      @ m3cosmos - Mine begins production tomorrow!! Coincidently it's my birthday tomorrow too!! It's meant to be hahah

      More excited that it's the car's birthday rather than my own!

      @ Fissues - Thanks mate !! LOL - Happy birthday to you too!

      @ Axel1 - Mate that Sepang Blue is HOT! I almost regret not getting a louder colour but I think the stealth look will work nicely for me.

      Yeah sooo keen it's actually driving me insane! Every other word that comes out of my mouth is "I WANT MY TTRS ALREADY !!!"!! My girlfriend has had enough of me talking about it LOL

      My car docks here sometime late August/September! So deilvery will be once window tint and paint/leather protection is all done and will be sometime mid-September/1st week of October at latest. I've lucky enough to spend some serious time with the TTRS as I just go into Audi whenever I want to have a fix. I have banned myself from doing this now until it arrives otherwise I won't be a excited haha.

      Really looking forward to the little things as well at the moment to be honest, like how the mirrors are in-line with your eyes so very F1 style feeling, Recaro's, LED interior lights/DRL's, Bose system etc. .....At least for the first 1000km until I can put my foot down anway

      I've already notified my boss that from day of delivery I will be taking 2 or 3 days off so I can just drive and enjoy it

      Hahaha

      Yeah I've seen all those pics - pretty sure I watched this vid about 100 times

      Only difference in mine to this one is wheels and I have the silver mirrors.

      Love the stealth Darth Vader look! So aggressive! hahah! If you look at an Ibis white TTRS it looks a bit like those warrior dudes from Star Wars - I forget what they are called.

      Me thinks someone at Audi Head Office loves Star Wars.. hahaha.

      Where is you dealer located?
      I'm in NorCal as well, hence the "925" area code.

      My salesperson is A.C. at Livermore Audi. I've no reason to suspect he's not being honest. If Tim is correct, Livermore Audi's got some 'splainin' to do.

      My prediction:

      The slimy dealerships will order the full 500-1000 car allocation for themselves to mark up in price before 90% of the people that want the car can actually order them.

      I will personally poop on the desk of an AoA executive if this happens to me.

      The Darth Vader car that AoA brought to the US is awesome looking, but note that it has the carbon fiber mirrors. How much is that option? No one knows. Also, it has the "black'd out" grill frame. Is that the same as the titanium grill in the "sport exhaust titanium pack"? No one knows. Of course, it has the 20" wheels that aren't available here. The car that they gave to Car & Driver had aluminum pack with titanium wheels and S-tronic...neither of which can be purchased in the US.

      There's so many unknowns still at this point. It's hard to know if you will get a car with clashing exterior trim pieces (dark wheels/silver mirrors/chrome grill trim) or not. That's why I ordered the aluminum pack...figured it would at least match the standard US wheels. Just not sure it's what I want.

      Oh well.

      I posted earlier in this thread a vwvortex link to $300. carbon fiber look covers for the mirrors... the electrically folding carbon fiber ones offered by Audi will probably be $1100-$1200+ based on the 1100 EUR price on the Audi Germany website (the cf mirrors are not offered on the UK website... just the electrically folding option).

      It will be VERY interesting to get clarification on the "Titanium Grille" included in our "Sport Exhaust Titanium Package"... The 308 GBP cost on the Audi UK website (360 EUR on Audi Germany) for their "Black Stying Pack" includes "radiator grille, license plate holder and radiator grille frame in high-gloss black"... do we get a titanium grille and frame surround, or just a titanium surround (in place of the silver) with the standard grille?

      Perhaps Tim might get a chance to ask Mark or AoA the details of the "Sport Exhaust Titanium Package"... as soon as possible?

      I remember your suggestion for the aftermarket carbon fiber mirror covers. They should come standard from Audi when you get the "sport exhaust titanium pack".

      All this info should be available at the dealership at the time that they start taking orders.

      If I talk to Mark again, I'll ask him. I do have a couple of questions in to him at the moment.

      Also, FWIW, on every other model that Audi offers a Titanium Pack for in the US, it includes the blacked out grille, so I would imagine that would be the case here also.
