      I pulled this up from another forum dated 4/20/2010:

      "I just spoke with Audi Customer Relations and got a little more information about what's going on with the west coast ports of entry. According to the representative, they are not using San Diego anymore...they are using Houston. All cars headed to the West Coast of the United States will ship to Houston, and will be either railed or trucked depending on final location. She did not know how long this has been going on, but said she thought it was a recent change due to cost analysis (its faster and cheaper to get to Houston and use truck/rail instead of taking the boat all the way to San Diego).

      They told me that my car left Germany yesterday (19 April), and will arrive to Houston on 10 May and will be railed to Seattle in order to arrive to the dealer NLT 17 May. That's pretty FAST! Only 21 days on the boat, and then 7 days to get it offloaded and railed to the Northwest. I know that Audi is usually a bit conservative on dates, so I'm hoping it might even be a couple days earlier."

      I had read that earlier and thought my car must be on the Camillia Ace also.

      Full Audi press release below:

      Audi announces pricing for 2012 MY TT RS

      • Introduction of TT RS marks the much anticipated return of the RS nameplate to U.S.

      • TT RS fitted with a manual transmission and the award-winning, powerful 2.5 Liter TFSI® turbo-charged five-cylinder engine

      Audi of America today announced pricing for the much anticipated Audi TT RS. The 2012 TT RS is the pinnacle of the TT model line, and signifies the return of the RS nameplate to the U.S. The RS nameplate represents the highest performance category for Audi vehicles, and reflects the technical competencies gained through Audi motorsports successes. The Audi TT RS will be priced at $56,850 (excluding destination charges, taxes, title, options and dealer charges).

      The Audi TT RS is powered by the award-winning 2.5 liter turbocharged five-cylinder TFSI engine that generates 360 hp and 343 lb-ft of torque between 1,650 and 5,400 rpm for power on demand. All engine components have been designed to cope with extreme loads and the demands of a thoroughbred sports engine. Forged six-bearing crankshaft, weight optimized connection rods, sodium cooled exhaust valves and lightweight pistons with specifically adapted ring assembly are indicative of the elements engineered into the TT RS.

      The combination of FSI® injection and a high-efficiency turbocharger result in optimum combustion, superior power and rapid buildup of boost pressure even at low speeds. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission and quattro® all-wheel drive is standard. An automatic transmission is not available for the TT RS. The Audi TT RS accelerates from 0 – 60 mph in only 4.1 seconds, making it the fastest in its class.

      Audi magnetic ride is standard on the TT RS, which allows the suspension characteristic to be actively altered; the driver benefits as the system constantly adapts to the current driving situation. A sport mode stiffens the magnetic ride, enhances throttle responsiveness, and activates a more striking engine sound via flaps in the exhaust system.

      The aluminum and steel hybrid ASF® technology also found on the TT and TTS models, reduces weight while helping increase rigidity and safety. The coupe space frame at 3,306 lb is made up of 69% aluminum and 31% steel which makes it 48% lighter than a full steel frame. The Audi TT RS offers excellent aerodynamics with a drag coefficient of 0.32 due to its optimized silhouette and smooth vehicle underbody.

      The Audi TT RS features exclusive design elements denoting its special place at the top of the TT model line. The high gloss black diamond-patterned Singleframe® grille and large front air inlets give notice of the vehicles performance, as does the fixed rear wing spoiler that provides increased down force. Oval exhaust pipes, rear diffuser, unique 19” rotor wheels, prominent body sills and exterior mirror housings in matte aluminum finish round out the RS-specific design elements.

      The interior of the Audi TT RS also features RS-exclusive appointments, such as the contoured 3-spoke sport multifunction steering wheel, aluminum door sills with the RS logo, and RS-specific interior door handles. Other interior features include 10-way power sport front seats with three-step heating, leather seat coverings, brushed aluminum interior inlays, and available LED ambient lighting.

      The Audi TT RS offers electronic features one expects from Audi, including Audi concert radio with single CD player and MP3 reading capability, and AM / FM / SAT radio with a complimentary 3-month subscription to SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. Available advanced electronics offer an increased level of sophistication for the premium sports car, including technologies like Audi navigation plus with real time traffic, MMI® inspired controls, a BOSE® sound system, and Audi music interface.

      The 2012 Audi TT RS is a unique car that will appeal to Audi enthusiasts and performance vehicle purists alike. The Audi TT RS goes on sale this summer.

      fantastic numbers for an unmodified TT !! I don't think I'll ever have the occasion to test out the top speed, but I'll be testing out the acceleration often!

      Not sure how our modest HP increase over the previous European model can result in us now beating the Stronic 0-60 by quite a bit?? (or 62mph as the case may be...)

      It's slower than the DSG - that was tested at 3.6sec. Audi's published numbers are conservative, so it's probably actually less than the 4.1s listed. With an APR flash, this will be a little rocket ship!

      Another interesting factoid...for as long as I can remember, all of the German car companies except Porsche had a gentleman's agreement to cap the top speeds of their US market cars at 155mph. Audi broke ranks with the R8, now they're following with our car. A subtle nuance that few owners ever get to explore, but interesting none the less.

      Note that when Car and Driver published that number there was all sorts of interweb talk that maybe Audi had thrown them a ringer...until it was noted that the figure was within tics of what all the Euro magazines tested too, with different cars.
      Further speculation was that no way an honest 360hp (or less in the C and D car) could produce those numbers, fueling some number crunchers to say the actual figure was probably around the 425hp number. Guess we'll really know when someone gets a US spec on a dyno.

      That's probably good for a 12second something quarter mile. Any idea if audi quote conservative on 0-60's? I'm surprised no magazine tests yet for TT-RS 360hp version.

      People with Stage2 Revo are seeing low to mid 3 second range 0-60 in the UK

      I think the engine has always been making close to 360hp, lots of folks in Europe with the original 335hp motor were getting closer to 360hp on the dyno and their acceleration figures back it up. I think the acceleration numbers are also a product of the torque the engine makes, peak torque from 1600rpm is insane. Couple that with AWD and a hard launch and 4.1s is very believable on stock tune.

      I really doubt that it's making much more than 360hp though and I don't think the US spec engine will be as underrated. At 360hp it's already making 144hp/liter stock which is really impressive from the factory.

      Chipped it will be around 410-420hp and then you'll start seeing 0-60 in the mid 3 second range.

      I had read on one of the eurpean websites ~ 2-3 months ago when the TT-RS Plus was spec'd that it did incorporate real changes to the engine. This HP boost is not soley achieved through re-rating alone. I am sorry I can not find this info at the moment but it is there for your search.

      Further, this is the APR measured HP numbers for the non-"Plus" TT-RS in Europe:

      Stock
      As Reported by Audi
      338 HP
      332 TQ

      Stock
      As Measured by APR
      352 HP
      341 TQ


      I bet that we find, upon APR breaking into the ECU of US spec'd TT-RS Plus enginer that HP = ~ 370.

      Right, the new CEPB engine does have some revised internals and it seems the original CEPA and the gearbox have been getting minor revisions since 2009. 370hp measured seems possible but I don't think it will be in the 400hp range stock as was suggested above.

      I still find it surprising that on all of Audi's worldwide websites, Audi states the 0-100km time of the CEPA manual is 4.6 sec., the 0-100km of the CEPA S-tronic is 4.3 sec., and now they are stating the 0-60mph of the North American CEPB manual is 4.1

      Even ignoring third-party tests, such as Car & Driver... our 4.1 stated from Audi beats their current stated CEPA S-tronic!!!

      Weird. Dropped into my dealer at lunch, both my salesman and his assistant were busy but said they would respond to my early morning email later. Just got a reply and it says my port date is now 7/29 instead of 7/25, and delivery date of 8/15 versus 8/1. She sent a copy of the internal announcement of pricing. Same release as the public's but it did say configurator would be up by the end of July, brochures available to dealer in early August. She says when they received pricing on other 2012 models, it was base price first followed by full option pricing, etc a week later. They still seem to think I'll have my car "in about a month."

      I have a busy day, and look at all the info I miss.

      That base price falls right in line with what was reported a couple of weeks ago. Good to know.

      It makes sense that western shipments come into Houston, and then get trucked/railed. I guess a few of our cars are probably travelling together. Great! We're somewhere in the Celtic Sea right now, out of range.

      Manufacturers claimed 0-60 of 4.1s! Top speed of 174! This is good s**t!

      Please note that specs are on 95 RON gas, which is about 91 R+M/2. In NY, we have 93 R+M/2...so must be a little better.

      You have to take the APR rolling dyno numbers with a grain of salt. Dynos are all a little different, and they are using some "assumed" drivetrain loss to calculate flywheel bhp.

      I bet AoA saw my stupid boat updates, realized we are getting a little punchy, and knew it was time to throw us a bone.

      Just noticed curb weight is listed at 3306. That's 100lbs more than the Euro version.

      Fuel capacity is 15.9gal...isn't the TTS 14.5?

      4.1s to 60!!!

      Probably a part of that is the seats - the airbags add weight. The press release also mentions heated seats, maybe they weighed one with the added weight of the heaters too. And if it had the motorized spoiler, that's more weight. Who knows? Plus, the Euro version has 18" wheels and tires standard - the 19's are heavier. Add that all up and it's probably 100 pounds. We do get a few more hp to drag that pork around!

      What's the story with the Quattro? I'm getting mixed messages from everything I'm reading and watching. I thought it is a 50/50 (max) Haldex quattro, much like the R32's was, so basically front-wheel drive. Some web reviews are saying 100% to either axle. Was hoping for a 40/60 like the RS4 and R8.

      Audi raced a TTRS along with the R8 at 24 hrs of Nurburgring recently and the TTRS competed (and took 14th our of 200+ entries) in the front-wheel drive class. Sort of discouraging, but I suppose the end result is what counts.

      Any insight?
