A couple of us have been able to get below MSRP even with Audi Exclusive color options. You really have to shop around.
This thread has more details.
I know this is a silly question....
I am a late comer to the party. I've been so inspired by you guys I went to the dealer and plopped down a 'deposit' on what seemed to be one of the last few TT RS to be delivered in the NY/NJ/PA/CT area (eyeballing his screen, there was only like 36 between these 4 states, Id say 30 of them were sold already).
First off, I am trying to get an exclusive color. Timing is bad so Im not holding my breath, will probably end up with Panther Black as two dealers in my area are expecting delivers of that color.
Has ANYONE been able to negotiate to get the car below sticker? I mean I know they dont make that much profit but hey, 3-5k is still 3-5k...
Would love feedback
I wondered because it seems like inventory is so tight, and dealers are clueless about colors.
Ill keep checking and keep my fingers crossed.
BTW, hows the progress on your Orange TT RS? What did they charge for the exclusive?

No problem. Gateway1 and a couple other members have provided a ton of information no the custom ordering process and helped me immensely in getting what I wanted.
$2500 for Audi Exclusive colors (View any European Audi site to see all the colors in the configurator)
$4500 for a few specific colors still under the VW umbrella
$6000 for any color code.
For the colors, it seems to be best to find the color code yourself and bring that to the dealer.
As for time, from what redz9269 said in getting her Volcano Red last year, it took about 6 months. I have no update on mine other than a commission number. For custom colors it seems like they put us at the back of the list and then do them all at once.
Inventory is tight but that is because Audi is slow to release allocations to dealers.
I would love to get the TTRS, even as an Audi employee, they wont budge off MSRP.
Would love to find someone who has a new 2013 TTRS on their lot (under 30 miles on the clock), and willing to let it go for invoice. Possible?
Not nocking the car, but is it me or is $66k MSRP a but high for a car using a cheap Golf/Jetta
motor, but slapped with a turbo. Yes I know the 2.5L was Audi's motor first, but it's currently
on every other lower end MK5/6 Golf and Jetta.
Wish the employee discount applied to this car, then I would have owned it by now.
You can either think of it as a Golf/Jetta motor or 1/2 a Lambo motor with a turbo slapped on it
Either way, the performance and durability of the engine are no joke. It moves quick and takes a beating. I think it's worth the price. It performs as well as cars costing twice as much. And looks better, in some cases.

honor costco pricing guidelines. If they want your business they will. There are many preowned on the market for a car that's only in "limited supply" and that has been around for only a year in the US.

Reading your posts makes my brain hurt.
Getting back on topic. I was getting a quote from my sales guy(Calgary, Alberta), and the best they were able to do was to toss in Audi Care and that was it. Should I press for more? I asked for $3000 and Audi Care, but he mentioned the typical "Limited Run, special edition RS" stuff that I'm sure most of you guys heard when you bought this car.
Is there anything else I should try to get included?

Why not take European delivery and get 5% off of the MSRP? That's over $2500 off even if you just fly to Germany, take advantage of the free night hotel stay, drive the car for a quick spin on the Autobahn and then hand it back in the same day. Sure, you have to wait 8-10 weeks for delivery, but it's a nice chuck of change and, if you book carefully, a $600-900 plane ticket.
You do, though, get 5% off of MSRP and you get the opportunity to drive the car through the Alps, on the Autobahn and around the Nurburgring. Not to mention the food, beer and cultural experiences!
