Hey folks! Current BMW 328xi Coupe driver looking to order a 2009 Avant. I have been researching a few Audi boards trying to get educated and have cross posted this message.
I'm not sure if this is BS, but two different dealers have told me today that the Avant will come to the US with a manual! I also heard that a new order form came out dated 7/18 (they got it today 7/23) and it looks like you will be able to get an S-Line option on the base "premium" package (however you can't order any B8 with s-line as it is "in red" as of now).
The icing on the cake, this particular dealer said he thinks he can get me that Avant by December!!!!! Merry Christmas to me. He will confirm and call me back tomorrow. I really hope I am not spreading BS rumors from ill informed sales people :^(
So, my questions:
1) Can anybody else coroborate the manual availability and new order form with the new s-line story?
2) What other good a4 forums / boards do people like? In particular, the e90 boards have a "prices paid" section that is great for researching deals with other forum members. Haven't found one for A4s yet (other than Edmunds).
Thanks so much in advance for your advice / thoughts.
