The additional stitching on the outside armrest is nice but I wish it was leather. The center console screen staying up is disappointing. The exhaust sound is actually louder and deeper in both D and S mode. The tire pressure display is helpful. Otherwise it feels exactly like the previous versions.
    Several,prior posts noted that the outer armrest is now leather, not leatherette.

    The armrest is leatherette. The door trim insert above the arm rest and below the inlay trim is Alcantara. The center armrest above the center console storage is leather, however.

    It's rubber that is textured to look like leather. Here are some photos to compare the armrest vs the leather seat.

    Its a big upgrade over the plastic but it is disappointing itís not at least leather, if not Napa leather used on the seats. You can definitely feel the difference between the two.

    Its disappointing but it is what it is. On my old S3, I can count on one hand the number of times I actually retracted the screen while driving. And most of those were just during night driving to minimize the brightness, which I can accomplish by turning off the screen even if it doesnít retract.

    Took delivery on Monday of my 2019 Nardo RS3, with Tech, Dynamic, and black optics. Came with 19miles on it and I'm at 170 now. Such a cool car. Cannot wait to break it in and go WOT. Exhaust sounds amazing, color is great, I ceramic coated it. It's just awesome. The BO sound system is actually really good too! Quite surprised, but its hard to listen to it when the exhaust is so intoxicating.

    Congrats! Same spec as mine it seems and I can agree with all your thoughts. Iíve put 800 miles on in less than 2 weeks (a lot for me). All have been immensely enjoyable. Even the traffic miles.

    damn! I need to do that now. tuesday wednesday I spent claying and a light polish then ceramic, so that took quite the amount of time. But I wanted to get it done before I did some longer road trips.

    Lucky! I'm about a month behind, production was completed May 7, trying to get an update now on expected shipping etc. 5 weeks completion to delivery to dealer isn't bad at all... that would put me around my birthday on June 18th. That would be awesome.... happy birthday to me hopefully :)

    Sigh... Mine missed the ETA for ship departure. Presumably the car is just sitting at the port. It completed production last week of April.
    ETA for ship departure was 5/10. No update after that. :(

    And pwl.de hasnt released an updated ship schedule either

    ... so I asked my sales rep to shoot me a quick screengrab (which he's done 1-2 times before) to see if any updates on shipping times etc. Production was complete 10 days ago, so I'm figuring it should be getting on a ship fairly soon.

    His response is... well, rude AF IMO.

    "Hi, I'll definitely keep you updated on the RS3. Unfortunately, due to resent(sic) events on transit vehicles beyond our control, management has instructed us not send system screenshots of any kind. Car was made on 5/7.... we still waiting for it to get it on the ship. Dealer arrival looks more like 7/5 now. There won't be any meaningful changes until it actually gets on the ship. Once that happens its about a month to the port & then about 2 weeks to the store. I'll let you know".

    Am I wrong to interpret this as basically "F off, it'll get here when it get's here and you don't deserve regular updates", or am I just getting POed since I want the damn car?

    Well first of all, he's not THE salesperson at the dealership...he's probably a lower level been there less than a year guy. THE salesperson has free reign to do whatever he wants with the Sales Manager. Lastly, yes, you're being too sensitive. Just do what I am doing and enjoy not having the payment and saving up! Glass is half full!

    Seems like a perfectly reasonable response to me. I'm sure if he had any more info that was helpful he'd give it to you.

    Well, after finding out that exclusive colours are not available for order on 2019ís I decided to "settle" for Nardo Grey. The sales guy I was working with was able to source one that was in the system the way I wanted it so they are going to trade allocations in order to get it for me. I put a deposit down today and expected delivery is sometime in July. :D it's going to be a long 2 ish months... But leaves lots of time to research mods.

    Here's what it will have:
    Nardo Grey
    Audi Sport Package (Fixed Dampers, speed limiter increase, carbon engine cover)
    Black Optics
    Technology Package
    RS Design Package
    Red Brake Calipers
    Sport Exhaust with Black tips
    Audi Phonebox

    For those that have gotten your cars already. Those the front door puddle lights say Audi Sport?

    I saw it as a dealer installed option, but i also read somewhere the cars already came with them in the front doors.
