    Don't know about the S4 pricing but looks like they just dropped the A5 coupe pricing on AudiUSA. Along with the configurator link that doesn't work. Why so backwards Audi NA?

    Looks like real quattro on A5, not ultra, and manual available from now. Alcantara interior option would be nice.

    Yeah, the DSG A5 will keep "real" quattro, but the manual gets quattro ultra. Pretty weird to see this departure when both auto/manual versions of the A4 have ultra.

    Per Audi's site:

    A5 models equipped with the S tronic® transmission and S5 models with the Tiptronic® automatic transmission command drive torque through a self-locking center differential, with a basic ratio of 40:60 front to rear, and wheel-selective torque control.

    New for 2018, A5 models equipped with the six-speed manual offer the new quattro® with ultra® technology. The technology utilizes an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch along with a decoupling rear axle differential to achieve fully variable torque distribution. This quattro system with ultra technology allows for intelligent, proactive control of the all-wheel drive system to help predictively modify the torque application as the driver demands or the road conditions require.

    Don't they do this every year? They wait until they announce all of the models for the year at once before you can build one. Though it is odd there is no info on the site.

    Went to visit the dealer here last week as our 2012 Q7 is now past warranty and we are looking for our next vehicle. After looking at the available Q5's, sales guy lets me know that they have a couple of 2018 S4's that they pre-spec'd on there way. I always wanted one of these and when the wife gave me the OK, I put my deposit down next to one.

    I am located in Canada and I was told that the delivery was expected on March 7th. Does this seem realistic for a Canadian delivery???

    The spec is as follows:
    - Navarra Blue, Technik Package, Rotor Grey Interior, Carbon atlas inlays, Non red calipers
    - No drivers assistant package (Not sure I would ever use the ACC and didn't feel like forking over for the added cost.... mistake??? Doesn't matter much anyway as it was a pre-spec'd car already in transit)
    - It has sports differential and dynamic steering
    - No adjustable dampers (I have not seen any reviews about adj vs non-adj, so not sure what to expect here??? Anyone know what this may be like??? Again, this car was pre-spec'd so not much choice if I wanted to stick with this car)

    Other than my wife's Q7, I have not had a non-manual transmission vehicle in 15 years (2003 Toyota Matrix XRS, 2004 Tacoma TRD, 2009 Subaru STi, and a 2014 Tacoma TRD which is my current daily driver until the S4 gets here) Hoping the S4 other attributes make up for not having a manual. The Q7 has the ZF-HP8 in it, so I am familiar with that. Hoping it is programmed a little sportier than in the Q7.

    One last questions the dealer could not answer as they have not been given the full details yet... Anyone know if the sports seats have the pneumatic bolster adjustments and massage feature for a Canadian spec vehicle???

    Thanks! Looking forward to this one. Will put some thoughts on it here once it arrives. May have some more questions in the meantime.

    Congrats!! From what I've seen in the Canadian order guides, The pneumatic seats are an option that needs to be ticked off for you guys. For us in the US it comes standard because of course, They want more money straight out of the base price.

    Spoke to my dealer on Saturday and he said all the S4's at port in the Northeast region are still on hold according the Audi locator. He also said there's still no pricing on the order guide and that the window stickers have not been printed as of yet. In my mind, that makes delivery this week pretty questionable.

    Just passing on what I was told...

    I spoke to my buddy who has dealer connections. The S4's have started to arrive at dealers as of yesterday. However, I was told they are just the dealer demos. I have some pictures of the S4 that arrived at the PA dealer yesterday, but I'm not sure how to post these.

    I am getting hella upset about this nonsense. General manager called me yesterday saying there is a hold on it still and the released to carrier update is not correct. It's at their distribution centers but can not be released from there. Looks like it'll be next month and I bet money it's going to be after the ***king Geneva auto show. Ridiculous at this point. (Sorry guys just venting)

    That sucks! Audi does not seem to be doing a great job with releasing new cars to the market. I would think, with all the hype, we would have much better information / updates.

    The hold most likely has more to do with EPA certification than it does Audi.

    There is no joy in having your customers pissed off at you for things you have no control over. If they had the info, they would share it for that very reason.

    That vent was not towards the sales people it's toward Audi themselves. I know they have no control over the information they receive. -_-

    From another site

    Subject: 2018 Audi S4 product and pricing announcement

    Dealer Communication



    2018 Audi S4 product and pricing announcement

    • The all-new S4 acheives a best-in-class 0-60 mph time of 4.4 seconds, a full two tenths of a second faster than the Mercedes-AMG C43 and BMW 340i xDrive
    • Replacing the previous S4’s supercharged V6 engine, the all-new 3.0-liter TFSI® V6 produces an impressive 354 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, an increase of 21hp and 44 lb-ft
    • Standard 6-piston monobloc front brake calipers, along with available sport adaptive damping suspension and an updated quattro(r) sport rear differential provide enhanced performance and driving dynamics

    Arriving in dealerships this Spring, the all-new S4 provides additional content and increased performance over the previous S4, as well as the competition. Starting at a Premium Plus trim level, the S4 builds upon the A4 with the following additional standard equipment:

    • 18” 5-double-spoke-star design wheels with standard summer tires or optional all-season tires
    • 3-spoke multifunction flat-bottom steering wheel with shift paddles and S badging
    • Diamond stitched S sport seats with power side bolsters and massage function
    • Leather/Alcantara® interior with contrast stitching
    • Brushed aluminum decorative inlays
    • Aluminum-optic exterior side mirror housings
    • Platinum Gray Singleframe grill with aluminum-optic double blade bars
    • Quad exhaust outlets
    • Rear trunk lid lip spoiler

    Comparing standard equipment to the competition, the Mercedes-AMG C43 is standard equipped with leatherette/DINAMICA seats, halogen headlights, an unbranded base audio system, and without a sunroof, yet starts at $52,000 MSRP. The S4 starts at only $50,900 MSRP and is standard equipped with leather/Alcantara® seats, LED headlights, a Bang & Olufsen® sound system with 3D sound, and a panoramic sunroof.

    Increased content, class-leading performance, and exceptional value is what sets the S4 apart in the segment.

    Additional Information and Resources
    MY2018 Audi S4 Product Information Books will be available on the Audi Academy CRC website in the coming weeks.

    Order Guides with full pricing details will be available on February 24, 2017.

    Wow. If Audi claims it does it in 4.4s, I'm guessing it should be slightly faster in real since Audi usually quotes higher times. Right? Like Audi says the A4 does it in 5.8s or so but I've got consistent 5.2-5.4s (stock) using launch control.

    And $51k is not much for an S4. I know what will replace my A4 :)

    A debadged Allroad with a tune is the closest you'll be able to get to an S4 Avant in the US.

    Looks like they just dropped US pricing for the whole A5 line as well.

    And $51k is not much for an S4. I know what will replace my A4 :)
    I recall reading the ABT piggyback/tuned B9 S4 with "419hp" hit 4.7s 0-60. Granted it's an Avant but interesting Audi is claiming 4.4 for the sedan out the gate.

    Not flaming here (don't attack me man!!!) but isn't it odd not to offer Black Optics right off the bat on the S4? That option is pretty much expected at this point. Won't that just give some people a reason to hold off purchasing this model year? It's odd to me when Audi makes decisions like this. By no means do I know anything about the inner decision making process inside the company but giving people an excuse NOT to buy seems counter intuitive. Especially when you can log into the UK site, for example, and opt into all the bells and whistles you want. It's frustrating being a US Audi customer and enthusiast sometimes is what I'm really saying and it's mostly in regards to decisions like this. The S6 configurator has the Black Optics as an option. Just weird.

    I like the black optics wheels but I also like the chrome trim and the aluminum look side view mirrors.

    4.7s is too slow. I'm sure a stock S4 does that time at the least. Hell. My Racechipped A4 can do that. An APR tuned A4 can definitely beat that.

    S4 is up on Audi USA

    Is it me or do the color options seem very limited? No sepang/ara blue, no yellow, no nardo/nano gray. I find this a little surprising.
