    HAHA I promised myself I wouldn't call the service director until an hour before they close on friday. Entering a zen-like state waiting for my phone to ring, will be a long week!

    I know my whole dealership has R8s, RS3 and TTRS just sitting at ports with no information from Corporate on whats going on. So they are frustrated as much as us. Think about it, like mine alone has $1M of inventory just sitting at the port and they have NO confirmed information to provide to the buyers yet.

    It sounds like they are revising HP down to 444 and on audi's site and on window stickers they all remove reference to HP.

    Went to another dealer close to my work last night for the hell of it and saw that the RS5s are coming in the next few days.......ughhhh. Going to see a Catalunya tomorrow night and I might just pull the trigger.

    I see it's rated at 450 in Europe, but I think that's PS which is 443.6 horsepower. We see the same thing with the RS3 some markets call it 395hp and some others 400.

    Port Stop Order??

    If RS5s start sitting on lots and available and the RS3 is still stuck in port purgatory, not much of a difficult decision to make....

    It is not shockingly more expensive.

    Are you sure? I built my preferred spec and it was about 45% more expensive than my rs3

    My RS3 is loaded at 67300 MSRP. I would ditch dynamic plus and focus on different packages on the RS5, built to 83675. Only 24% more.

    The RS5 is nice and all but the exhaust note can’t touch the RS3 IMHO.

    To each their own but I find the hood/nose of the A5/S5/RS5 to be quite ugly

    4 doors is desirable but a 2 door coupe not indefinitely held at port is starting to look pretty good!

    No dual clutch, seems a big step backwards performance wise.

    I think the official reasoning behind the switch to ZF 8 was that it supports higher torque figures compared to the s-tronic.

    On the slightly unrelated topic of RS5s vs RS3s, I can't believe Canadian RS5s are getting the RS design package!!!! Boooooooo
