    Ohhh ok sorry, I thought you were unhappy the RSDP came standard on the RS5 and you wouldn't want it if you bought one.

    Meaning Canada doesn’t get the RS Design Package for the RS3?

    No. We get a few other things but that is not an option.

    Delivery to the dealer or just software update and released to carriers? There is a difference :)

    The issue I have is buying a car because the one I REALLY want is being held at port. That seems like settling to me...may regret that decision down the road but if you were seriously considering an RS5 anyway than its a moot point.

    I just got a call from the dealer. My date has been 26DEC for ever. The date just changed to 18Mar, but it still says hold. At least something changed.

    We just got communication from Audi the fix is available and they will start the software updates on cars at the ports starting tomorrow then will be released for immediate release to dealers. I will be checking your car and another TTRS I have sold for release starting Saturday on a daily basis.

    My system doesn't update me so I will go in a proactively check daily.

    Best,

    Audi does have a little wiggle room. Published figure is 400hp but dynos I've seen have been about 10% more than that so they could detune slightly and still make 400hp.

    Not really thinking about the advertised number. I'd just hate to see the number go down as the result of some EPA mandate.

    Needed is relative. To date, I have no problems and no intention of going into the dealer for any update unless there is a compelling reason.
    Also, no one can answer that at this point and anyone who does is just guessing, but then again that's what this thread is al about.

    Well that’s just it...Audi might say “hey, you need this to prevent a future problem” or they will say, “we did that to address some issues which affect some portion of engines,” OR they will say “this is a fix IF a problem arises.”

    I sent an E-mail to AoA yesterday asking about our delayed cars, this is the answer I received

    "Unfortunately, we do not have any information available to us as to why these vehicles have not been released yet. A couple 2018 models are going through additional quality checks per our colleagues in Germany. We, unfortunately, do not have any information on when these vehicles will be released.

    I suggest keeping in contact with the dealership you ordered through. They have access to the same resources we do here regarding ordered vehicles. You can always check back with me as well for an update."

    Port Stop Order??

    I love the optimism.

    My pessimistic side is telling me delay in order acceptance is dealer allocation issue and not a factory production issue.

    Here it is mid-march and still nothing from Audi in Germany. If I were an R8, I would have left by now. There are many other cars in the 200-250k range I would jump to and feel valued as a customer.

    Hello Folks. New to this forum...ordered my RS3 in aura blue with all the bells and whistles other than dynamic+. I spoke with the general manager of sales at my Audi dealership a couple of days ago. What he told me is odd but I thought I would share it with you. He told me that he hasn't heard about any issues with the HPFP or EPA related issues on emissions. What he said he heard was that concern had been raised, I don't know by whom, that the noise level of the exhaust too loud and so had to be toned down a bit. He said this was a software flash fix and they would start implementing the fix this week. I specifically asked if this affected power or performance and he said no. He also said the reduction of tail pipe growl was minimum so that it wasn't an issue with noise ordinances. This seemed odd since most noise ordinances are local/municipal issues.

    He said he can confirm and definitively say that I should have my car by the end of this month...i.e. at the dealership.

    They have been good to work with so far...delay is not the dealer's fault. I traded in my 2012 S4 back in September 2017 when I ordered this car. I was told it would be in by mid December/January. Because of the delay, they've been nice of enough to lend me an A3 for the last 2.5 months. I'll let you all know if I get the car by the end of March. If this falls apart, I might upgrade to an M4 or Cayman S or something else. Problem is that I really want and need an AWD car where I live and I can't really think of an AWD sports car that is in the $70k-90K range with similar performance.

    I'm sure we've talked about this sixteen times but the volume thing doesn't make a lot of sense, there are many louder cars on the road. The new Mustang GT is crazy loud for stock exhaust, over 115 decibels.

    I know it was posted elsewhere there was a rumored software update to reduce/eliminate the exhaust 'pops' anyway. That's fine by me as long as it still sings loudly as before at continuous full throttle.

    Talk about pops and bangs....I had a Jag F-Type slow down next to me at a stop light, that thing was so loud, sounded like a machine gun lol. The RS3 doesn't have a loud exhaust at all. My AMG sounds twice as loud as an RS3, my AMG decel and downshift pops are super loud. I don't buy that story at all either.

    there's a car within reasonable distance that i somewhat have my eye on, but it has dyn+ and driver assist (both of which i didn't order). my friends are trying to convince me to wait, not settle. i'm still on the fence.

    There was an official stop order in place by Audi since Dec. 21st. Not an allocation issue. I simply ordered at the worst time, 9 days prior to the stop order and at the time they were waiting on an allocation slated for 2 weeks after my order. So just bad timing. It is a software issue. It has to do with the high pressure fuel pump and the winter gas. The pump doesn't like the fuel mixture. Try looking Auditors under the TTRS MK3 page and the Ordering Timeline thread. You will find the official stop order there.

    ask for 5% off. I had a dealer in FL tell me to kick rocks and a week later come back to me within $500 of my asking price. My dealer told me my car is coming this month and to hold off. I bet you can get a $69k down to $66k OTD

    If it is the same red RS3 I found online, they are marking it up from MSRP.

    I'd give it another week. There has been enough rumbling of pending release that I feel like we must be close. I'm hoping we'll start hearing more info/start seeing them ship early next week.
