      Thanks Domm & Bill!

      I don't have to wait for the overseas shipment, so my time to wait should be less than 2 months. Unfortunately, my wife is due to deliver our first child on September 12. I don't know which delivery to be more excited for!

      I'm sure I'll be finding LOTS of reasons to run to the store to get baby supplies...

      Well, you can come over here and test drive mine if you want. Bring your wife. If she goes into labor, no problem. I'm an Ob/Gyn.

      I don't want to kill the mood, but my dealership has told me that my car has been at port since last Monday (7/11). It's been sitting there because Audi hasn't released them for delivery yet

      Hopefully it'll happen soonish (I imagine it'll come with the package pricing).

      I just got home from a long driving vacation from Houston to Sun Valley ID and back. Saw many car carrier's with Audi's loaded on them and scoured them for TTRS's but came up empty handed. I saw one car with titanium five-rotor wheels and got all excited...until I saw it was an S5 with them as an option. I'm on vacation this week and may drive over the Port of Houston's Audi lot. Don't know how close a look you can get, but if I see anything interesting I'll let you all know.

      There have been TT-RS models in US ports since the first of the month. Apparently Audi of America is waiting until some magic date to release them along with the full pricing info. I've heard it may be the first of the month, although they didn't say which month. . .

      I don't imagine they will wait too much longer - the BMW 1M's have started arriving at dealers already. (our local scumbag dealer has one on the lot as a 'used' car, asking $69k for it - sticker was under $55k!) The TT-RS is looking better and better.

      No surprise there. We knew that cars were sitting in the US. There might be some emission testing, but other than that I'm not sure what the hold up is. I don't see Audi making a big PR deal out of this car that will only sell in limited quantities.

      Keep us posted.

      Hey Doc, how did you find out which ship your car was on?
      If anyone can check commission # J60351 I'd appreciate it. I've also got the VIN if that helps.

      They may - it is the first "RS" model coming to the US in quite a while.

      Maybe everyone who ordered one will get flown on a private jet to the Audi Forum Sonoma at Infineon Raceway. We can take delivery there and go for a few laps around the track with a supermodel as a passenger. Then Danica Patrick will hop in and show me how I should have been driving. That would be a proper launch party!

      Yeah, I'll bet that's what the delay is.

      Sounds like a plan as long as I can swap Michelle Mouton in place of Danica

      My dealer called the port, and asked. My boat has actually just left Rhode Island, so I'm assuming my car is in the US.

      My update today pushed the delivery date back to 8/8. Each week, it seems to get later. Personally, I don't take it seriously. Audi is making this stuff up.

      I agree with this comment on the UK forum... " don't get the whole slam it to the floor so it looses all handling and drive-ability. Not a huge fan of the wheels in that colour. I would of liked this 5 years ago but it's all old news. Still nice looking car! "

      still... always nice to see (and hear briefly at the end) our TT RS!!

      I drove by the Port of Houston to try sneaking a peek....but can't see much of anything. The VW/Audi facility can be viewed from overhead via the I-610 bridge over the ship channel, but trying to make out TT-RS's in a sea of Audi white car covers from 300 feet above is pretty futile. Drove as close as I could but since the whole port is under Homeland Security, they kind of frown on climbing any fences or the like. Here's a picture of what you CAN see, sorry.

      Hey guys, I know this isn't an R32 thread but I need some advice.

      To those of you who own/have spent a decent amount of time you'l know how epic the car sounds and how it pops quite a fair bit from the exhaust. All great stuff!

      However, last night I went for a big cruise/hoon with a couple guys from some BMW and some other forums. When we stopped we were being silly and revving etc but when I revved (very close to rev limiter and was smacking the throttle very high up in the rev range so it pops (around 6-7000rpm)) it started to shoot out flames and the more I did it the bigger the flames were with red coming from the exhaust with blue flames shooting out and then yellow jagged flames. All in all the biggest flames were about the size of my arm. It wasn't like catching on fire with slow flames though, it was short bursts of fire/flame coming out. (If that makes sense). The car is completley stock everything with 59,000km on it. 2007 year car. The exhaust was very hot given how I was driving it and also the revving, but do you guys have any suggestions why it was shooting out flames?? Like as cool as it looked, I am a bit worreid maybe it wasn't the best thing for the car.

      Yes, I am retarded

      To those of you who own/have spent a decent amount of time you'l know how epic the car sounds and how it pops quite a fair bit from the exhaust. All great stuff!

      However, last night I went for a big cruise/hoon with a couple guys from some BMW and some other forums. When we stopped we were being silly and revving etc but when I revved (very close to rev limiter and was smacking the throttle very high up in the rev range so it pops (around 6-7000rpm)) it started to shoot out flames and the more I did it the bigger the flames were with red coming from the exhaust with blue flames shooting out and then yellow jagged flames. All in all the biggest flames were about the size of my arm. It wasn't like catching on fire with slow flames though, it was short bursts of fire/flame coming out. (If that makes sense). The car is completley stock everything with 59,000km on it. 2007 year car. The exhaust was very hot given how I was driving it and also the revving, but do you guys have any suggestions why it was shooting out flames?? Like as cool as it looked, I am a bit worreid maybe it wasn't the best thing for the car.

      Yes, I am retarded
      If you're revving to 6-7k RPM, then you're just hitting the rev limiter. The car briefly cuts fuel at that point, but it's stuttering on itself so there's unburnt gas escaping through the cylinders. And since you're revving the engine to 6-7k while standing still, the exhaust manifold is heating up enough to ignite the unburnt gas into the flames you see.

      Hitting the rev limiter for brief periods isn't such a terrible thing. That's why it was invented. But doing it continuously while standing still may not be such a good idea.

      Thanks man. I was keeping it popping just before rev limiter and stabbing at accelerator so t wasn't bouncing off too much. You think that's any better?

      What octane/RON fuel are you using? I believe the car is stock tuned for 91oct / 95 RON. If you're filling with 93 oct / 98 RON, then you might get some unburnt fuel, maybe? I don't know. The 3.2L engine isn't very efficient to begin with. My car runs rich on a 93 octane tune from GIAC and my tailpipes have been black for years.

      Anyway, I'd advise against anymore flamethrowing sessions before getting your TT. I assume you'll probably be selling/trading the R32 so you probably don't want to destroy it before then.

      Yeah I'm running 98 RON on it man. That's why they're not doing the 3.2 anymore on the Golfs anymore. . Yea my pipes were thick black but I polish them every week when I wash it so it looks epic always haha.

      Yea thanks so much man, was abit worried I'd screw it up so thought I'd ask. Car is to be traded. I'll miss her, for about 5 mins
