      Post up your questions/concerns/color/options, etc...

      Just received an e-mail from my dealer:

      "It looks possible and we should be able to get a one manual allocation slot from Germany on a TTRS. It will be either a July allocation /August build or August allocation/September build. I will know definitely in the next two weeks, as there isn’t an open allocation for building the TTRS presently."

      Could the majority of '13 orders be allocated?

      I doubt it. You should definitely be able to get one!

      Seeing as we're 6 months into the year already, it wouldn't surprise me. Allocations for the 12's filled up pretty quick, too. And it depends on your dealer and their volume and allocation openings, etc. When I ordered my 12 last year in June, I had to wait until late July before I got the word that my order was accepted by Audi. I was really nervous that I missed the boat!

      Anyone else place an order for a '13?

      I placed my order today for a '13. Dealer said I should hear on Monday if order was accepted and more details. Was told it would take about 3 months to build. I'm doing Euro delivery. Will let you know what I hear.

      My order was placed on 6/2/12 and still waiting to hear whether it got picked up. By your timing, that might mean mine will come early Sept. I did a custom color so hopefully that won't delay it.

      Those worried all allocations are filled, I wouldn't fret. They said the same about MY12's back in October and people still placed orders in March or April of this year. Plus it didn't sound like Audi made the full 500 expected. This early in the game we should be good for MY13.

      Now if only Audi would hurry up and update their supplier program to include MY13.

      Keep in mind all dealers are not equal, allocations are based on past sales and other criteria. My dealer got four 2012's, some were lucky to get just one.

      2007 GTi /2012 TTRS
      06-17-2012 04:08 AM #12
      Ordered my 2012 December 5th, 2011

      didnt get an allocation until 2nd week of February 2012

      Estimated delivery was then set as May 24, 2012

      Car was delivered May 6, 2012.

      Hardest part is where you're at.... plunking down deposit money and having to wait just to get an allocation...

      Best advice... get the HELL AWAY FROM HERE until at least you get a build date!

      Focus on work, other hobbies ect.... checking out other members new deliveries and projects on here/ internet will drive you mad otherwise.

      Once you get a build date come back and start looking at stuff to mod & mail orders to arrive around delivery time...

      I got my commission number a couple weeks ago. Just got a reply back from dealer, order hasn't been picked up. They said they believe Audi just distributed the first round of allocations and the next should come in 3-4 weeks.

      I'm thinking a September delivery might be out of the question now.

      This does give me time to change anything. Only option I didn't take is the carbon fiber mirrors. I know they would look great on the deep gray color, but are they worth the $1900?

      Well it basically adds $30 to the monthly payment. That's a lot for mirrors. I wish there was a body color option or the ability to just get the power folding aspect. Hmm, decisions decisions. Time to go look at that R8 again. It had the mirrors and is the lava gray pearl.

      They're worth it for the auto-dimming.

      Definetly worth it, adds a nice little touch to the car. Power is what I was going for though, reguardless of the Carbon, and the fact that I ahve a black car, wasnt even a choice to think not getting them.

      All subjective. I went with Daytona and actually prefer the aluminum matte on it...probably would have gone CF with every other color

      Well, after a week of frustration I finally got some info from my dealer. There's a 75% chance that my Euro delivery order will be allocated sometime in the next month or so. That would put me at a target pickup of mid-Sept/early Oct, just in time for Octoberfest.

      My order is:
      Sepang Blue
      Aluminum package
      sport exhaust
      rear wing delete
