    Now that sounds like a good idea let's hope they pull through and maybe you can let them test it out on your car

    Yes it still retracts into the dash when the car turns on and off. I have access to ODIS also so lmk if you find the solution within.

    Anybody hear anything more?

    Here is a reply from distribution today.

    "Unfortunately we do not have an ETA on these units at this time. We have been notified that the delays are due to Certification changes in Europe that caused delays in US certification. We apologize!"

    lame :(

BUT just had word from both gentleman mentioned earlier that correlate. My build will start last week of Feb. Completed March 15th. Should see it here early May.

    When was your order created? We got orders from mid December that have not been factory submitted yet.

    My situation was a little more delicate due to my current car being a lemon . But don't you think they would all be on the same boat coming here??? Instead of them making the trip more than once. Or do they get delivered periodically depending on when the orders were placed ???

    Emden is a massive port used by pretty much every European automaker, at least the German ones. Several ships leave daily destined all over the world, what ship your car is on is based on shipping logistics and nothing to do with other RS3s or Audis. So a ship leaving for the eastern seaboard of the US will carry a bunch of different makes to Halifax, then Boston, and so on.

    That is a very good question and the whole thought about the situation is a little troubling. I hope they end up doing as good of a job as before and dont half ass everything because they aren't happy and aren't as motivated . You know like doing something you dont want to do or something you dont care about doing and just end up doing it because you have to in order to put food on the table . This really blows

    They got their requested 18% increase, one weekend off each month, anniversary bonuses and additional benefits. Production will be fine no worries... as any intentional and or unintentional quality issues will go exactly back to the people building it.

    looking to hopefully pull the trigger and order a '19 in the next week. i'm assuming most people are getting them for around MSRP? looked on the audi configurator and there aren't a ton of options for these cars. any must-have options? i'm assuming all '19's have the dynamic signal markers? i'm looking at the dynamic package, the upgraded stereo, black optic package, and that's about it. I hate the adaptive cruise in my rs7, so not going with the driver assist package.

    thanks

    I would say must have is the virtual cockpit (I know in Canada its a part of the base model but I believe in the south its an option?)

    Just being curious here, will you be replacing the RS7 by the RS3 ?
    If so, why is that ? I always the RS6/7 were the ultimate car !

    There are lots of them out there. It's not available anymore because production out of the Gyor plant has been a mess. I spoke with an acquaintance who runs an Audi dealer in Chicago and he was only permitted by Audi to submit a 2019 RS3 order last week for the first time. He's not even getting any of his 2019 A3's he ordered late summer for another six weeks or so.

    not replacing the rs7--I love it, its the ultimate luxury car for me. I miss having a sub-4000lb car that I can drive year round. I don't drive the rs7 in the winter. I drive a truck and a GTR in the winter and my kids don't fit in the rear seat of the GTR anymore. i'm trading in a hellcat charger for the rs3, which I traded in a chevy SS for, which I traded in a modded c6z06 vette for. I probably shouldn't have traded the vette, I just never drove it.


    to answer the other questions, the adaptive cruise is not nearly aggressive enough for me--maybe that means I suck at driving, but even at the most aggressive setting, it doesn't get close enough to the car in front of you, for them to know they should move over.

    the bang and olufson (spelling?) stereo appears to be a part of an option package. I have that option in the rs7, and its my favorite car stereo of all time

    I don't know about the US but up here the B&O is standard. It is absolutely fantastic.

    It's the B&O sound system. Lumped in with the technology package which includes virtual cockpit.

    It depends on the market where you are... but it is not unrealistic to get 3% or more off. I would not be paying MSRP.

    Just received my info from my dealer. Looks like production is estimated to complete on 3/15/2019 and arrive to port on 4/25/2019. I'm guessing I should get it in May some time.

    Short answer is, they don't.

    Love them both for different reasons.This is my second Hellcat, and my second Audi (previously owned an S6 along with a Golf R).

    The RS3 is my DD, and in WNY it's AWD is necessary; otherwise the Hellcat would be a great DD. Audi obviously is a couple steps up in interior refinement, but the Hellcat has that motor which is just silly. Hellcat tech is surprisingly pretty close to Audi, sans the Virtual Cockpit.

    Off the line, I'd actually take the Audi, but from anything resembling a roll, or at highways speeds, the Hellcat would just walk just about anything else on the street (and comfortably seat 4 doing it).

    If I had to own just one, it'd be the Audi because I need AWD and the MPG on the Hellcat would probably eventually get old. If I lived somewhere in the south...my answer would likely be different.

    Have you run any tuned RS3s in the hellcat? I've only run into one and we only messed around at lower speeds, but he couldnt pull on me.

    Just spoke with my dealer. My 2019 rs3 is currently in production and will be at the port in mid-April (15th-18th). Delivery will be early to mid-May.

    I love the charger as a daily in the summer. unfortunately, here in Wisconsin, the roads are too cold from late September all the way to may, and the car just doesn't put the power down, even with drag radials. I had big plans to mod the hell out of it last summer, but realized i might not want to keep it. i had my gtr at the track and lined up against a hellcat with drag radials, and it wasn't even remotely close. none of the rwd high power cars in my area seem to be able to run worth a damn at the track. with good traction, my charger would be a good race vs. my rs7 from a roll.
