    Well we still have home insurance and auto loan via USAA. So, essentially not dropping them. However USAA $1020 vs Geico $420 for the year of full insurance on the RS3 is significant. And when asked why USAA is so much more I was told that it's because USAA offers 'top notch and personalized service that exceeds its competitors' while I do agree with that... that's a significant amount of Geico savings...

    Geico sucks balls. USAA is way better. And I am just going on a hunch here, but there is no way in hell that you are going to pay that little for insurance on an RS3.

    GEICO has mechanical breakdown insurance, as does USAA. Highly recommended

    I don't rep either company, but I would never tell anyone to go with Geico over USAA. I rarely tell people to switch from USAA, unless I get a better rate in Auto Owners. One of the best companies there is. Always winning awards for claim service and shit. Which is kinda why you get insurance.

    Add it up: that's Geico's Comprehensive and Collision for six months ; divide by six and it's like $31/month my friend. Same coverage as our current USAA!! I know. It's ridiculous right?

My wifes e46 M3 is Imola Red with Grey leather and she gets Ohio State comments, 3 cars are white and another imola red, Garage is all O-H now but at least I can close the garage doors.

    That all said, I would love to have my calipers painted something different than all the Red ones that are going to be floating around. Thinking maybe some sort of blue, might depend on which wheels I buy or could be years later. More excited for APR's tune options by the time I get mine.

    one thing I learned a couple years ago is that not all insurance companies want to replace body panels or some parts with original OEM from the dealer.

    I was talking to a guy from a body shop (in Beverly Hills) and he was telling me that only certain companies will allow original parts. I think he said Liberty Mutual was one of them and that the other big companies prefer to cheap out.

    companies like State Farm and the like put priority on using Chinese copies or any other copy that may be "good enough" but saves them money on their bottom line.

    you guys may want to ask your insurance companies about that and request that in writing.

    For all you guys that have their car sitting in RI have you heard anything new besides they are moving beyond SLOOOOOOOW?! Yesterday my salesman tells me the car was released to trucking and should be here any day and today he emails me stating he contacted distribution and they are still waiting on the monroney label and a final approval from customs. I personally would have thought the car would of had to clear or get approved from customs first before being released to trucking. Find it kind of odd.. Now just hoping this is a quick process!

    Just the same, that it's going slow. My car, and dealer, already has a copy of the Monroney, which I posted like 2 or 3 weeks back IIRC in this thread. Not sure what the hold up really is at this point. She told me she expects it to be on a truck and moving by the weekend, but I don't believe it. It's been the same story since the 5th when she excitedly told me the car arrived in port, and "should be on the truck within the next few days."

    Ditto, got monroney and CO almost 2 weeks ago. Closed the sale last weekend (which wouldn't be possible without a CO). But yes been getting the same line re: customs. Sales manager forwarded me an email from the regional rep who checked on my car and said nothing was wrong but it was just "slow customs". Some cars are definitely leaving RI, a few confirmed already but it's sloooooooooow.

    Well, this has me a little concerned as my car was truck loaded on Monday and was supposed to be at the dealer by the end of Wednesday, but still hasn't shown up. I do have the monroney though, so not quite the same situation. Back to impatiently waiting

    You should be fine once your car has cleared customs and left port. Unless your sales guy fed you a line, did he show you the status in OMD?

    No, I'll ask for it but he's off today. I know he wouldn't give me false info.

    they have the rotors up on the build site for Canada finally. Must be back in stock. Man those look good with the car!

    Was able to test drive one the other day, man that car is hot! Not seeing much of a lag when I drove it, found it a lot more in the TTRS. In fact, I totally am in agreement with my friend at the dealership, as much as I loved driving the TTRS, which I did, man the RS3 put more of a smile on my face. I could tell before I even pulled out of the lot! This is going to be one heck of a wicked car. And for us Canadians, those rotors sure look nice!

    Does "release" mean something different than "cleared"? As of July 19 my 2018 RS3 was "cleared" in Houston, but have seen no further updates as to whether it has left Houston yet.

    Today's dealer update, they believe that Audi and US Customs are conspiring against me and I shall forever be stuck at port with the dealer telling me, "oh, any day now".

    car is still at port><
