    Wow. Didn't notice those big rear headrests. Funny how the US puts so many limitations on import cars for the sake of safety, and allows those things. They could actually be dangerous as it blocks most of your rear view.

    I guess I'll be taking my headrests from my S4 and swapping them when I trade mine in. Good thing it has the same color stitching so they will fit perfectly.

    Edit: Or are they the same in both pics? I just assumed NA was bigger but now that I look at it they could be the same.
    The middle one is already the "slim" version so no need to replace but the outer two.

    Dammit, I REALLY want the grey leather interior!!! Really frustrating that some flunkie in Audi Canada has decided that we can't have it - on my 5 previous Audis, I've never had to settle for an all black interior (although I had to factory order all of them because the dealers only want to stock cars with all black interiors), I really don't like all black - but if there's no other choice for all the advantages of the RS3, I was willing to tolerate it... but when there's a choice that some minion decided I can't have, just because, I get very frustrated.

    Prospective RS3 Owners ...

    Re: the headrests. 730 for a pair doesn't seem bad for the napa ones. If you can find the actual Audi part numbers you can look them up on kufatec.de. I've sourced a few German-only parts from them in the past, but you have to know what you're looking for (part number).

    Got this from my dealer today. Random or is something happening?:

    "Your Audi RS 3 has arrived in the United States. We sincerely thank you for ordering and waiting for your custom, personalized RS 3. We appreciate you for choosing Audi. I will be contacting you via phone to schedule your delivery."

    Which is funny since it's a 2017.

    So if I've just gotten the email from Audi that says we have your order, my dealer is telling me they think that's good in that Audi is acknowledging the order. (I don't understand how an actual dealer doesn't understand what it means or doesn't mean, but I digress.)

    What kind of swags do people have in terms of when the next steps might happen and, ultimately, the car shows up in the US. My dealer's overly unhelpful response was "maybe by the end of the year."

    Maybe 6 mos is reasonable/right... but I've also developed the belief that I might have gotten myself onto the least clueful US Audi dealer's list. So I'm guessing just the people on this thread would have a way smarter take on what the future holds!

    I decided it was time to put German wheels on this Audi. No more Chinese rims for me. That said, my Vossens have been strong on my S5.

    Yes that is a deal breaker for me..no chance I am spending $68k to have another black blah interior. It looks so much better in the grey. Hopefully they will bring that over next year.

    Sake of safety? That's actually funnier. The cars we receive here, in the States, are not any safer than anywhere else. It's all about nonsense regulations that generates billions every year.

    Status update

    Stopped by my dealer. He said my 2017 has been released from port and is awaiting transport to dealer. He said this should take about two weeks.

    Not sure what others have heard.

    Don't know if I believe him (wasn't Jon). But he was able to see it had been in port since may or something. He said it was being held by customs but no longer is. Someone else is getting a 2018 nardo there.

    FWIW I still don't see the 2017s on fueleconomy.gov. It could also be our amazing government is slow to update their site.

    Had to edit my comment above. I think I got your's and another user name swapped. This comment was probably meant for you!.

    The guy first said they were only getting my 2107 Ara, and a 2018 Nardo. I was sure he was wrong so he looked in the system and indeed yours was also in there. He asked if I knew you and I said only by online name. He mentioned a name that began with a "C" but my name also begins with a "C" so

    Mine should be on the ship on the 27th unless it left port earlier than expected, which would be awesome. Name here and IRL begins with a C, so i do believe he was talking about me.

    He said it had left port 2 days ago (from Saturday). He was looking it up on his PC so I can only assume he knows what he was talking about, but of course we've heard different things from different places before. Hope yours is early!

    Yours has the same info and if Nesbit is correct you are on the water as well. I will reach out to the dealer this week and see if we can get a ship number so we can track it.

    @nesbit Thanks for the info man. We will have to see if there are any events besides Waterfest and see if we can all meet up from the area.

    I was scheduled for the 6/27 boat. I got an update on Friday and it wasn't on a ship yet:(. Matt got pushed out to July 7th from June 27.

    I guess he could have meant to say "two days from now" instead "two days ago". Don't know. We did joke that he originally had a nardo, changed it to my ara, then ended up getting another nardo anyway. Wonder who's getting it. I had mainly stopped by because of the email I received, and wanted to know if I should arrange financing. I had talked with my credit union about it being approved before I put the deposit on the car and they didn't see a problem, but could only do it if I was getting the car within 30 days, which we had no clue of at the time. At least now I have a VIN.

    Incidentally, my insurance co (nationwide) didn't have any info on the RS3 so they had estimated based of an S5. Hope they get that straight.
