      It should be priced below the M3. The problem is that the TTS seems to be priced higher than it should but then again it has Stronic standrad. If i'm audi i'd price it at around $56K MSRP and $60k loaded which is $10K above the TTS without Stronic

      Yeah, a loaded TTS is like $53K...with DSG! Asking for much more than a $10K premium for the RS (with 6sp MT) would be insane.

      Time will tell.

      Thank you. I've been thinking about something like that. Depends on the wheels I get. And I'm still wavering on color...the red looks nice.

      Audi Wins International Engine Of The Year Award 2011 For 2.5-Litre TFSI



      INGOLSTADT, GERMANY – May 19, 2011: A jury of 76 motoring journalists from around the world has voted the Audi 2.5-litre TFSI as the “International Engine of the Year 2011” in the 2-litre to 2.5-litre category. This engine therefore retains the award that it won last year. The 2.5-litre unit fitted to the Audi RS 3 Sportback and TT RS Coupé and Roadster features both turbocharging and FSI direct petrol injection technology, two of Audi’s core technologies. With a displacement of 2,480 cubic centimeters, this engine produces 250 kW between 5,400 and 6,500 rpm and peak torque of 450 Nm from 1,600 to 5,300 rpm.

      International Engine of the Year jury members said of the 2.5-litre engine: "This is certainly the best turbocharged engine in recent years. Torque, power, and great sound – this engine has it all! It is a powerful, visceral reminder of the original quattro rally racing engine that put Audi on the map.”

      Developed by quattro GmbH, the Audi TT RS Coupé can sprint from zero to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds (Roadster: 4.4 seconds) and both the Coupè and Roadster have an optional top speed of 280 km/h.

      This is the seventh category win in a row at the International Engine of the Year Awards for Audi TFSI technology. Between 2005 and 2009, the Audi 2.0-litre TFSI engine has won the award in the 1.8 to 2.0-liter category.

      Hard to believe the M3 wet sump engine is better than the GT1 block dry sump Porsche engine. I've drivn both and there is no comparason in performance nor power delievery.

      I put a deposit down on a TT RS today! (Refundable if total with options exceeds $68K or goes past 12/31/11). Hopefully we can get pricing quickly and my dealer will then place the order at that time.

      Fortunately my dealer isn't such a prick. I can cancel with a full refund no matter what the price is. That being said, if the car you spec'd (which is the same that I did) is anywhere near $68K, I will be cancelling the order. I really want this car, but it isn't worth $15K more than a DSG TTS.

      Did you go to Monroe? My dealer placed the order already (4/27), and it is 100% refundable if I don't like the price. Why is he waiting on pricing before ordering?

      $62K is the most I would pay for the TT RS and hopefully with that price it will be fully loaded with all the options.

      I wonder if they will bring the DSG and Recaros on the following year of release.

      Don't know about DSG... but I heard we don't get the Recaro's because of the airbag placement...

      And of course everyone has an opinion on the auto vs. manual debate... but mine matches this guys recent post: "Love that Audi ran with a 6MT transmission for the US business sector. DSG can put up some wonderful numbers, but a RS auto is concerning the driving encounter and you unequivocally cannot beat a 6MT to give the best equipped driving union to an auto. We’re not dashing these autos on the ace circuit, so slight time contrasts from DSG to 6MT are not paramount."

      No, I passed on Audi of Charlotte... was given the run-around for a week, two of the salesman didn't know what they were doing, they didn't even know if they had a waiting list. Went with another area dealer who answered all my questions in an hour and told me I was #1 in their queue.

      I'm waiting on ordering for a few weeks to see the individual option pricing... for instance if the stand-alone sports exhaust or heated seats come in too high, I won't order those. If the Audi of Canada reports are correct, maybe we'll have N.A. pricing in a few weeks.

      Hi Josh, see my selections in my signature. As of last night I was still going to go the black color with the North American option package of black grille surround, titanium inset wheels, and sports exhaust. I was mostly going with that because I much prefer the look of those wheels to the regular silver ones... and even though on the Germany website they are priced the same, we won't have the option to get the titanium wheels outside that package. I changed my mind this morning, however... with the intent of saving the cost to paint or get covers for the silver mirrors (which I didn't think looked good on the black car) and will instead spend money to powder coat or paint the wheels on my own after buying the car. The wheels thus modified will look good enough for me for a few years before I feel a need to change them.

      Oh that's mad! Sounds like a really good looking car. I thought of getting the wheels in silver and powder-coating them but I found out about the 2 tone ones as an option and that was good enough for me for the minute

      Your black will be great looking too! I was originally going for your "Darth Vader" look ... even perhaps to someday add the flat matte vinyl, lower it and emulate this Avus modified pic:



      But that vision turned out a little too extreme for my wife (who is helping to foot the bill), so we decided on the sepang with the aluminum trim...

      For those of you in N.A. that might be interested but didn't see it, this is the interview with Audi Product Manager Mark Fruechtnicht at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show in Feb. Nothing much we don't know now...

      Haha the "Darth Vader" look is exactly what I was going for - too funny! I love how that Avus matte black TTRS looks.

      Even so, the Sepang Blue looks sweet with the Aluminium Pack!! I was really torn between the Aluminium or Blackout Pack. Darth Vader prevailed

      Oh no! I hope she won't be driving it too much!! Your poor clutch and wheels!! haha
