      First, that's the color I wanted to get on my RS. But, Audi wasn't doing exclusive colors for the US when I ordered. I guess I should have waited. Or not.

      Second, that's not Mexico Blue. I did a lot of poking around before my dealer said No Exclusives.

      It's Riviera Blue (L39E).

      Here's thread with some good comparison photos:

      I love that color!!!! I saw that TT-RS online a few months ago and drooled over it for a while. My wife would call that color douchebag blue though....

      I ordered a Audi Exclusive color Palace Blue 2012 S4. The cost was $3000 for one of the official Audi Exclusive Colors which Palace Blue is. They told me $6000 for any other color under the sun. I'm not sure how 2013 is working out, but they were backed up for a while and not accepting Audi Exclusive orders from the US. I ordered my 2012 in early 2011 though and my Exclusive order got accepted before the stopped accepting them.

      I'm glad all this happened though, because the delay in my S4 order (took almost a full year) allowed me to walk away from it and get a TT-RS instead! My dealership (Circle Audi in Long Beach, CA) were really cool about it, the order was too far along too cancel, but they didn't charge me anything. I got to see the car which was cool, a salesman from the Circle Porsche dealership bought it right when it came in. I bought the first TT-RS they got in October, which really was love at first sight....had to have it!

      Even if you can't get the custom color, all the TT-RS colors are good. Suzuka, Sepang, and I think Panther Black are normally exclusive colors for other models. If you want bright, get Misano Red or Sepang Blue with the Aluminum pack. All TT-RS's are Exclusive, every single one of them.

      My exclusive order was $2500 for a previous Audi color. It did take 9 months from order to delivery but IMO was worth it

      That's a fantastic color. I was also partial to Malibu blue because of the metallic flake. Looks great with the aluminum pack and Ti wheels.

      According to the text it's "light blue."


      Mexico Blue is L336
      Riviera Blue is L39E

      The only way to be sure which color is in the OP's picture is to get the paint code from the jamb sticker.

      I think I like the Rivera, has anyone checked out how much this would cost????

      I am once again debating putting an order for a TT-RS, for a while I could not justify trading in my 1 year old car because all I do is Daily Drive it most of the time.

      I am thinking maybe I will change my mind. I would love to get one no one else has like the Rivera Blue.

      Once I find out from my dealer, I will post up the numbers.

      I hope to get numbers for both Mexico and Riviera.

      Mayan Blue should be correct color, so reminescent of the

      From my dealer:

      "If the color of your choice is an Audi color, the charge is $2500.00. If Mexico Blue or Riviera Blue is a competitor’s color, then the charge is $4500.00."
