    Haha, this guy! One week and no production...

    Mine took almost 3 months to enter actual production and 4+ to make to port where it sits. Others have been waiting much longer. Saddle up for a long wait brotha!

    Everyone here is reporting around about 4.5-6 months. If the dealer has an allocation waiting and you can get in just before it is frozen to changes and change to your specs, that will cut about a month off. Usually the cars are spoken for long before that but if someone backed out or your dealer just haven't had much demand that can certainly happen. One guy posted last week in Edmonton who managed to do that and his looks to be about 3-3.5 months.

    I am just messing with you ;). I am actually praying your order is only 3-4 months and all this port stop order business way taken care of before you even enter production.

    I place my order on Jan 25th, it took just about a week for it to be accepted by Audi and as of last week we were waiting for it to give us a production week, start date. Looking at May/June maybe July before it gets here.

    My SA has sent me two updates and responded to my emails last week pretty quickly, had to make a small change that I forgot on the original build sheet.

    Right, seems everything is kind of bottle necked at the moment. I'm very glad I didn't hesitate back in September when my dealer told me they had an open allocation, ordered September 11th, picked up from the dealership November 29th.

    That's odd, I ordered only 4 days after you did, and my (old) car arrived on 12/26 and has been stuck at port since then.

    Damn I order before you and fell way behind. Must be allocation related. My order wasn’t accepted until Oct

    I input my configuration to the dealership on August 4th of 2017 against an open allocation still configurable at the time. The car completed assembly on November 17th and was loaded onto the Dalian Highway I want to say November 30th (they're allowed 2 weeks from end of production to loading the car onto the ship) it arrived in the port at Benicia on January 4th, 2018. Alas there it remains with no clear or trustworthy ETA for release.

    Meanwhile the dealership has had me punt my A3's service saying, "don't worry about being over..." at some point I feel a moral obligation to go ahead and service the car, if this BS extends into April it'll simply be too many miles over for my tastes. I also shod the car with entirely new tires at their suggestion to avoid getting dinged on trade in for that, I was *certain* I'd be at 8/32nd'ths with the original delivery timeline, now I'm not so sure.

    I share the pain of everyone waiting or who had waited LOL...

    I imagine theres like 30 RS3's just sitting in Benicia. Check the Audi online inventory. Palo Alto and Steven's creek account for like 20 of them. Wonder if they will ever see the US public roads. Or Maybe the day they are released we should have a giant meet-up the next weekend to celebrate.

    Yep mine is an order through Audi Palo Alto, Daytona Grey...loaded with everything but Dynamic Plus (didn't want the ghastly brake job prices...) with the added on rear side impact airbags because #kiddo rides back there.

    In all probability this is about the winter blend fuel vapor lock issue. I've had some communication with other RS3 owners back east, one feller I've chatted up via YouTube who posted video of his car repeatedly stalling in 30F weather. I'd argue here in NorCal it doesn't quite get cold enough to be so worried as to hold the cars but what do I know.

    I spoke to AoA today, it wasn't a very fruitful conversation. They're nice enough but I think they don't know anymore than we do or if they do they're not allowed to say anything. I suspect it's the former rather than the latter...tis the German way LOL. Vie vill hold unto zie informatzion und you vill not get it until dis und das ist richtig!!!

    Agreed, we should do a #free-the-rs3 meet up once these cars get released! It'll be like a liberation day celebration...

    Regards,

    James R.

    I do an almost daily search on AutoTrader (out of curiosity, I'm no longer on the market) and today a new RS3 showed up in Plano, TX. It's on the lot as they have pictures of it on their web site. Not sure what that means.

    Latest from SA as he saw the status update on Access Audi today. Not holding my breath for anything, but at least there is physical (electronic) evidence of a port hold and stop order.

    Don't really know what to make of it, but this is the first time they've actually updated with it saying that there is a HOLD. The "Holds Estimate Days", from what my SA said, is days until the hold is cleared, so if it were going to be a week, usually they would put "7" there. Now we don't know if this is accurate, or if they jus threw a "0" in as a placeholder.

    That looks like bad news. They are only now updating the status to hold, and including a Stop Order?

    Yeah, I was looking at the 0 and being hopeful that it was accurate and not just an undefined value placeholder.

    Well if it was 0, and the effective date was 2 days ago, I would probably assume a place holder. And a bullshit one at that lol

    RS3 and TTRS:

    We have some clear activity, and vehicles should start being released from port between end of March and mid-April!!

    Whats weird is that according to the print out the dealer gave me about a week ago where it says “holds” its says no. But ETA shows march-Apr for a December 4 order. All this is so confusing.

    My presumption all along is that a "port 'Stop Order' " means that an order in process (i.e. all of our cars) is paused. If you are anywhere along the delivery process, they will hold the car until the 'Stop Order' is lifted.

    I assume that a "Stop Sale" would prevent anyone from putting money down for an "order". We haven't heard a Stop Sale is happening, ergo Mr. uclaman picking up an RS3 last week...

    I think the image/schedule is nothing we don't already know. But, filling in the zero's would be GREEAAAAAT.

    My 2018 Daytona w/ BO has < 1000 miles on it, MSS springs, EU visors and rear headrests. Are the current delays helping it's market value? I might be switching to a M2 soon :)
