      Does the titanium package exist in real life, outside brouchures, in the United States? I'm considering trading my 2011 GTI and salesperson is having a hard time finding any configuration which has this package.

      Titanium Sport Package
      Inspired by the Audi motorsport legacy, the Titanium Sport Package includes a number of aesthetic and performance enhancements. Exterior elements include 18" Titanium-finish wheels and the iconic Singleframe® grille flanked by Gloss Black elements. Inside, the aggressive look is continued throughout with an exclusive black headliner, Piano Black inlays and S line® sport seats with perforated Alcantara® inserts and S line doorsills. Enhanced handling performance comes from a specially tuned, lowered sport suspension that gives your Audi a low, assertive stance. Optional roof rails are black with this package

      Package contents
      - Illumination package
      - Leather Perforated Alcantara®
      - Black grille and exterior trim
      - 18" 5-rotor-design Titanium-finish alloy wheels with 225/40 summer performance tires*
      - Black headliner
      - Aluminum doorsill inlays
      - Piano black interior inlays
      - Sport suspension
      - Sport seats

      I didn't make my question clear. I understand that the option is shown as available. However, I'm told that all A3 sportbacks destined for USA (whether called 2012 or 2013) have already been produced and that one cannot order one. That being the case, my question is whether the cars are occasionally sent to dealers with Titanium Package.

      Possibly but IIRC custom orders with titanium options were often delayed. I ordered mine in early August and it didn't come in until late December.

      I think there going to stop taking orders soon, my local audi dealer said any day now they wont be take any new orders

      I know the wait for one if you build your own can take up to 6 months. I ordered one back in December did get it tell May

      i know FWD ti package is less rare then Quattro ones. There are only like a few Quattro TI packages in the US

      June of 2011, i believe I picked up the last ('11 Titanium Ibis White with an Open Sky Sunroof) in the West Coast. I shopped in 3 different states for it (California, Oregon and Washington). Here is a pic of him on his 1st year Birthday a few days ago:

      To the OP, you most likely have to special order. I had to special order mine and I'm in Socal. Ordered July 2011 and arrived in Feb 2012. Yes it was a long wait, but it's well worth it. <3 the alcantara seats.

      You'll be hard pressed to find an existing one. Best bet is to oreder it. But if you do, won't it be a '13 and not a sport back? I ordered mine late December and had it mid March.

      For the moment the '13 A3s are identical to the '12s. This may change if and when the A3 sedan availability is annou ced.

      What color would you say those are? I was looking at some Reps that were Gunmetal, would this be a close approximation?

      i don't think any reps come even close the to OEM TI wheel color on the 2011's, the finish is satin and the gunmetal is one of a kind color not your standard gun metal

      personally i think the new 2012 TI wheels are better i have had both and the new wheels don't show any dirt and have a little room if you curb the wheels at least the screeches wont stand out so to the brushed lip, pluss the new style wheels are styled like the TTRS and RS3

      here is a picture of mine just picked her up in MAY

      The actual color of our wheels are: Titanium (in a satin finish)

      Like RedLineRob said, they don't show any dirt. My wheels always look clean like if dust and/or clean them everyday, but i don't.

      it does exist...but VERY rare! I was told by the ex-Audi President that it is one of the rarest cars Audi sells in the US (titanium spec A3).

      i'm talking about facelifted 2010-2012 A3 Titaniums...2.0. quattro, i've been told, is even less.

      the current titanium cars also have the sport suspension, which cars pre-2009 don't have, correct?

      Thanks for the responses. It's been a week since I asked about it, and dealer has found nothing. Neither have I, searching inventories in all Audi dealerships in midwest. Too late to order one.

      Okay so I have found at least 4 on auto trader, what specs are you looking for? I know I had a couple options when I picked mine up and just a quick look resulted more. You may have to travel for it, which is what I did. Roughly 600 miles one way, but it was worth it.

      I saw a Titanium Package on the lot when I was first looking at a TDi.

      Now if you want rare try a TDi without the panoramic moonroof. I ended up ordering just so I could get one.

      I'm pretty sure I have the only Ti 2.0 Quattro on the island here. My ******* service advisor told me he has never even seen a Quattro a3 on the island. I can see why 50 percent of the members online here own a titanium though, we are the select few who really care about the details of our car. Enthusiasts if you will. The select few who enjoy our car enough to take time out of our personal lives to talk about the car we drive every day. We are in good company.
