    Don't think you can retro fit a 360 cam - definitely not OEM.
    I reckon you will be able to source genuine parts somewhere in the future but they wonít be cheap. To tell you the truth Iíve never had 360 camera and if the car didnít have it I honestly wouldnít care but seeing as it is an option and Iím spending so much money on the car I do want it plus when selling it later on Iím not sure how it will affect it if all the later delivered models have options the first delivered cars donít so for me the car sits there waiting to be built. Iím not sure on this but if the dealer has the car sold then they get another one allocated so I think itís in their best interests for the customer to accept their car instead of it sitting there on order

    I see what you mean. Fingers crossed. I just hope that on future models they don't get rid of more standard options.

    OEM parts can be retro fitted. If the car is pre-wired, retro fitting the 360 cameras as an eg should be pretty straight forward and not a bank breaking exercise. At the most expensive end of options, kaufatec provide a full retrofit package using all OEM parts Surrounding camera - 4 camera system - for Audi A3 8Y (kufatec.com)

    On a related note, USA configurator is up

    Hopefully the factory is getting back up to speed and we'll see more RS3s delivered in Australia

    Fair enough too.
    Your Dealer will probably be pretty happy with that, as IMHO, from the sound of things, RS3s in any configuration are going to be in short supply, so He should be be easily able to sell "your" car, whilst still having your original order in place.

    Maybe but they get allocated the slots by Audi so they can sell as many cars as they want but they won’t be able to get cars to customers for quite a while and with the RS3 that is years. Their best interests are for customers to get their cars and get paid for them not just sit on deposits, don’t go thinking that just cause a dealer takes an order they get a car, Audi tells dealers how many cars they get to start with but they do get that number adjusted frequently. I know with my dealer they were allocated less than a handful of RS3s when orders were able to be placed yet they had far more customers already put down deposits, they latter were allocated an extra one. The first ones that put deposits got their orders sent through where as others are kept waiting, not long after we could actually place an order the dealer stopped accepting orders from customers because they had no idea when or if they can get cars. Sitting on my order is not a good thing for either them or me but I’m not happy to accept something not how I want it so I’m happy to wait. My understanding is that if I sit on my order until I get the full specs Audi don’t just allocate another car to my dealer for the next customer.

    Yeah. Same. Should be doable for a lot less by sourcing the parts elsewhere. I'll retrofit and provide a guide for others if there is demand (depends how many cars end up without it). Its a good feature to have.

    Yep - no 360 Cam (Not fussed - I generally prefer the rear cam in my car to the 360 in my wifeís) - and no Ďmassageí function in the seats. I didnít even know we were supposed to get that when I placed the order, so again, not fussed.
