      Maybe it's because I am a Suzuka fanboy, but I disagree with you there. The Suzuka Grey is a really subtle, beautiful choice that shows off multiple colors depending on lighting. It can go from looking white, to a blue-grey, to a full grey, and all of them have wonderful depth to them as well. Our long-term B8 S4 was Suzuka, and I have never gotten so many comments on a car's color as when I was driving that around or when we had it at shows. It's a very subtle, beautiful color.

      But that's me.

      The RS order guides are not up officially yet, but when they are, I'll grab one for you guys that's a little easier to read.

      I opted for the retractable. Any strong feelings one way or the other?

      I stuck with the fixed spoiler for two reasons. One, it seems to look really good in pictures, and the aluminum supports make it a notch above "ricer" construction. Secondly, it sets the RS apart from its lesser brethren so I thought I should keep it. Opting out is more stealth I guess.

      I don't think I have ever seen Suzuka in person, so pics are just not doing it justice for me. All I can think about is the MK1 TT that looked like a battleship puked on it, and on the TT, I didn't find it flattering. Was that Suzuka?

      That color was Aviator Gray. I always thought it was interesting....on someone else's car. I would never have bought it.

      LOL... no that's aviator grey. I have some pics of my AG car with a suzuka grey TTS on my PC at home, will post later.

      If you want to see some pictures of a Suzuka Grey car, our photo gallery of our long term B8 S4 has a bunch. It's a hard color to photograph, because it's very subtle.

      I am a huge fan of Suzuka Grey. It's true pictures really dont do it justice. You don't really see them around which makes it quite rare and that in itself is appealing to me. I really loved aviator grey as well. But hey....IMHO.

      Suzuka Gray and Monza Silver are both listed as pearl effect colors, but I believe that these were previously described as metallic. Does anyone know if the paint formulation changed on these colors this year?

      A couple of Suzuka pics... Here's my aviator grey mk1 with a suzuka grey TTS

      Suzuka looks interesting, especially in contrast to those other colors. I'm sticking with Sepang though. I've seen an R8 that color in person and really liked it.
      I do wish we had interior choices though. I would be more likely to choose another shade if I could choose something besides black for the inside.

      My dealer suggested heated seats since they say Audi doesn't sell without them. Is this true even for the RS if you live in cold climate? $500 not a big deal but don't want to waste.

      Audi's are going to sell no matter what mate. I live in Sydney Australia - it gets relatively cold here but nothing like Europe does. Having said that, I feel the cold and love driving with the windows down in winter, so for me I'd never buy a car without putting them in.

      They're more just a really nice option to have.

      What car are you looking at bud?

      I live in NE Ohio and my TTS is my first Audi (out of five) without heated seats. I didn't bother ordering them because I never used them on my other cars, even when I drove around with the windows down.

      OTOH some folks really like them, hence it's your call but Audi will be happy to sell you a car without them.

      Oh thats awesome man!!!

      Yeah I was really torn between the white and Suzuka Grey. I reckon Suzuka Grey because A) it's more unique but B) only the RS models (in Aus anyway) have the option of that colour - which to-date is RS5, RS6, TTRS and R8.

      What is a Tech Package?? And what is the Sport Exhaust Titanium Package?? :O !!!!!!

      Ahh I see. So you guys have a like a name for a whole set of options cos in the Tech Package I've got all those options except the live timing because we don't get that in Australia .

      And this Sport Exhaust business!?!? What exhaust do they put on the car?? Our cars come standard with the S button inside that does suspension and all the usual stuff but it also opens a flap in the exhaust - could that be the Sports Exhaust you have optioned on?

      That is a very cool set of options man!!! Very similarly specced to my car!

      The exhaust with the flapper is the standard one. The Sport Exhaust is apparently a slightly louder version of that.

      Just got an update from my dealer. My quoted (overly optimistic) initial delivery date of June-July is now "mid-August".

      Also mentioned that the Titanium Package and Aluminum Trim package are incompatible. So no dark wheels if you like the alum spoiler.

      Stated that due to the earthquake Audi blue's are in short supply however he's had no word regarding (my pick) of Sepang Blue delays.

      Still no price.

      I'd take sports exhaust over the TV that I've put in mine.. Maybe not the Recaro's though. For me - that's a big thing of the way you feel in seats when driving

      Did you end up going for Suzuka Grey?

      Time to start counting down the days - roughly.. haha
