    So the available colors are: black, black, grey, grey, white, silver, red, blue

    I count only two actual colors there. Where are the interesting colors like Solar Orange, Imola Yellow, Nogaro Blue?

    whats missing is Alu-Optic for $750.Other than that looks sweet deal:)

  5. 5 SMV

    so, shift paddles are standard? MT not an option on an RS car?

  6. 6 Peter

    Would really get excited if it was v6 twin turbo or 5 cyl variable vane turbo, or something to that effect…

    On AoA’s site, the only trans I see is the 7 speed S-Tronic. Sad for many, but the third pedal is not that big a deal to most.

    what about production numbers for the US? How long will the run be?

  9. 9 SoBe

    Weak… Same engine as the 2006 RS4, common Audi! MB, BMW, Cadi, all going forced induction…..

    I hope the optional sport seats are the Euro spec ones!
    And $6k for ceramic brakes is a bargain. Just look what Porsche charges! Or look at the cost to add ceramic brakes.
    Pricing puts it right in line with the Bimmer M3.
