    Yep, I got mine for $24.99 on eBay but as mentioned it looks like they raised the price. Probably an increase in demand from new RS3 owners.

    That's what she said! Seriously though, i was pushing for a earlier delivery and was up front with my dealer that I wasn't sure I was going to be able to wait 4+ months for the RS3. They are a Audi Sport dealer and have sold a a couple RS3's already, so I think that helped them do whatever they had to do (trade?) to get a configurable allocation that early. Before I put my order in, they said they had a mid October delivery RS3 in a config I did not want that was still un-purchased, but was locked to changes. They said that vehicle is still coming to them, so they must have used something else as trade bait. All I know is that I am more than excited right now. One more thing, the day I was at the dealership placing my order, a Audi regional rep was at the dealership and he told my sales guy that they were having a supply issue with the carbon inlays, so the RS3's spec'd with them might be delayed a bit. My model has aluminum trim interior, so I'm assuming that helps.
    Ordered: 2018 RS3 - Daytona Grey (Tech,DriverAssist,Dynamic). Previously: 3 DSMs, Evo IX, etc. Currently: '14 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT CC 4x4 6.2L 6.5' bed

    I got my allocation last month but my build week is 45. I ordered carbon inlays so wonder if that explains the difference between your build week and mine.

    The dreaded carbon inlay delay of 2017. My sales guy put my order in on 4/10/17 and I was the first in line for a 2018 allocation. It sat through May... then June... then July... no allocation or movement. I'm embarrassed to count the number of "any update?" e-mails I sent the poor guy. On 7/18, he was able to talk to the Audi rep, who told him that I *might* be able to get an allocation if I dropped the carbon inlays, because they were causing a delay. I agreed, because they were something I added on a whim, and then it was instantly submitted to the factory.

    My build week was 38, but I just got the e-mail saying it's heading to the boat today - so it's 16 days ahead of schedule! This is the first time I've custom ordered a car and I was super anxious and frustrated those first months when I wasn't sure if I was even going to get the car - especially when I was basically standing outside the dealership waving cash in the air.

    That's correct, however I am curious why the RS 3 has a VIN associated with Germany whereas my old TT RS was also built in Gyor and had a VIN that started with TR (Hungary)

    A lot of people think you want to race, when in reality, you just have to motor home because Chipotle.
