RS3 8Y Ordering and Spec

Thanks however I won't pay that exorbitant price i would rather go third party then give those prices. NRMA has been the cheapest so far, but wait till I get the car.

Paying $2950 for a 2016 RS3 with RACV. I shopped around last month. Was only able to receive 2 quotes (most wouldn't quote online) one for $3300, and one for $1600 with Budget Direct. I've had good experiences with RACV so stayed with them.
 
I put my vin in the HOEGH liners and it is on the hoegh trotter however it shows where it docks and the final destination is port Elizabeth. WTF that’s South Africa
 
Just one of several stops enroute to Oz.

Why does it show different load points, obviously mine was loaded from Germany the one you show is loaded in Spain

No idea.

From the Hoegh site, it initially showed mine was on the Chiba. Then changed to the Trotter in Santander

Would be intersted to know if anyone has been watching prices on the secondary market? I've been keeping an eye on carsales.com and following a peak earlier this year, it does look like a lot more cars are coming down in price. I've received multiple notifications over the last few weeks for multiple price reductions on various cars in my watch list. A couple as low as $110,000-$112,000 before on-roads. Does seem to mostly be either black or white sportbacks. Am I imagining this?

Plus on road and luxury car tax put another $14500 as per Audi site and your looking at $125 plus any extras is in the car. Like Sunroof, RS Design Package, Carbon Package. so whoever is saying those prices are making a heap above RRP that pic was just taken from Audi,Australia Website

Yes, I think I've noticed a "slight" decrease in advertised pricing.
But, $110-$112K before ORC is still expensive when one remembers that the RRP of the RS3 Sportback is $91,400 & the Sedan is $93900 (plus ORC), making those prices still too dear. Sunroof & maybe a few other "extras" may increase the price somewhat, but unless ya've ordered ceramic brakes etc, well I can't see the reason for the pricing unless someone's getting a pretty decent "margin".
What I'd suggest is that, if anyone is looking at looking at an advertised new car, then they make sure they obtain a detailed break up of the final "driveaway" price, bearing in mind the RRP is as above.
The other reason for pricing coming down is that maybe buyers are aware of the correct/fair pricing and so are not buying at inflated pricing.
Just my two bobs worth. Pickles.

RRP according to Audi website for a Sportback is just under 87K, however you cannot order one.
 
I've had 2 RS3's on order since 2021 – Both Daytona grey sedans, no extras aside from black badging.

One is due for delivery end of October, the other January.

I actually thought I cancelled the second one (through Brighton) but the dealer submitted the order and got me a build allocation. Both dealers are happy to cancel and refund me (so they can mark them up and make a tidy profit no doubt).

I've waited 2 years so I figure I may as well wait an extra 2 months and get the MY24 (though there are no build differences).

Not chasing a profit, if someone is keen you're welcome to it at list price ($112K drive away, exactly what I've got on the paperwork) just as long as you're actually going to drive the thing. Not interested in selling it to someone who is just going to flog it for a mark-up.

It's a Melbourne dealer, so you need to be in Vic and able to take delivery (and pay the dealer) by next month. You would be taking my allocation, so you'll be the first owner.

If you're keen (or know someone who is) give me a shout ASAP and I'll look to get the allocation transferred into your name.

EDIT: I get this looks dodgy as I'm a first time poster, but to clarify I'm not chasing any money, if you're serious I can put you in contact with the dealer (SE Melbourne) to clarify the legitimacy of it and it would be entirely done through the dealer directly.
Nice color, sounds like a pretty realistic price to me.
