      So I called an Audi dealer about an hour away from me today and I asked him a few questions on the TT-RS. Guy must have been new or he was the most uneducated salesman ever because he kept correcting me and telling me that there is no such thing as a TT-RS and I must've been talking about the TTS. Anyways I left my name and number so the sales manager could call me. Anyways my question is I've tried searching here and google and haven't found much info, but is there a chance that the US TT-RS will get a dual clutch tranny or are we getting just the manual like last year?

      The US will have manual transmission only.

      The TT RS is currently available in US with only the manual transmission.

      However, Audi will probably do exactly what they did in Australia and offer the TT RS with the S-Tronic dual-clutch transmission as a "limited limited" edition at some point in the future.

      Negative... Audi has already stated upon the release of the TTRS comming to the States that it is "limited release" to gauge sales. And in that reguard will not be offering any change to that, and only limited options and standard features as it would incurr aditional costs to Audi and not be posible for them to attain a financiall gain from that with minimal production.

      Sorry, but this car on this generation will remain a 6MT thruought production.

      Dayum, Dude. Read the forum rules...it is forbidden to post pics of those awesome seats in the US. We're all in pain over the inability to get them and pics like this are just cruel and unusual punishment...lucky bastard!

      Step right up for your four rings branding!

      Deploying airbag literally brands man as an Audi driver

      Auto manufacturers will often do anything to promote brand loyalty in their drivers, but we don't think this is what they had in mind. An unlucky West Virginian driver found himself with a very on-message souvenir following a recent crash in his Audi A4: A brand-like forearm mark in the perfect shape of the quad-ringed Audi logo, courtesy of a deploying airbag and very fortuitous (or, you know, the opposite of fortuitous) arm placement during the collision. Could be worse, though -- at least he's not walking around with a Yugo insignia lighting up his arm!

      Solar Orange is also in Europe not a standard color, it's a "Audi Exclusive" color option.

      OZ Superturismo LM 8.5x19" with 245 tires, will not rub in any way.

      Can't do a wider tire with those?

      No, 245/35R19" is a better fit compare to the OEM size 245/40R18".
      And there are spacers required to clear the Ceramic brake calipers.
      8.5J, 245's and spacers is the limit without any rubbing.

      The OZ Ultraleggera 9x19" ET/Offset 42 wheel will fit without spacers.

      I asked the question because the OEM tire size for us spec is 255/35 19"...so I guess that size wouldn't fit on the OZ

      The same size as Europe, and it will fit the 9x19" OZ Ultra's.

      Thanks for the input. Both are nice wheels but I really like the superturismo. Do you think less rubber on the pavement 245 vs a 255 makes any diff handling wise? Too bad can't put a tire greater than 255 but I guess the car is not set up for that...

      There are TT RS drivers with 275/30R19" tires on the OEM 19" rotor.

      I've come across that before. I would think more people would be putting wider tires on their cars but there is probably a reason why. Doesn't it impact the cars dynamics in a negative way?

      I'd do that; I'd imagine it would actually fit properly on the wheel with no drama, but it's getting it to fit without the rubbing..

      Noted something interesting last night.. I picked up my stock exhaust from my performance shop where I got the Miltek installed (didn't fit in the TTRS.. Infact barely even fit in the Q5!!!!)

      On the mid resonators; it says "B E N T L E Y" across both of them.. I couldn't find where it said VW or AUDI.. On the rear muffler it says Audi with the rings and on some other bits, but found this odd.. Does that mean that the mid resonators are Bentley ones?? If so.. COOL!!
