Crazy Prices John, good for those who own one,

An Audi SE said to me last week that used prices may & should drop quite a lot once the new cars are released for orders & they start coming through!!, that could be late Summer now.

Not sure how long they will be on the Audi site for as they will have to pull them for the 2020 Model year.

Hope you are still enjoying yours, I have purchased a Macan GTS in the Interim..& loving it.

On the RS4 price front - yes that's really noticeable, used prices have rocketed for 1 year old+ examples to nigh on £10k more than I paid 6 months ago.
Keep thinking about stepping out of mine whilst the prices are so good, but can't seem to find anything to swap it for especially with a sensible hat on.

Had a bit of an email exchange with my regular Audi dealership this morning.

“Audi are still not in a position to accept any orders for RS4. Ordering was meant to open in March but this has been pushed back until later in Qtr 2.”

Typically with Audi Model Year (MY) change over dates happen around Week 21 which is late Q2 - so if the RS4 is to reappear then it would be a MY20 model, going to be late September before a vehicle appears in a UK showroom assuming a 12 week lead time - though RS models have been known to take a lot longer in the past.

From other side of the world, local Dealer confirmed last week that RS4 orders have been accepted by AG for new Buyers, but there's no confirmation about when they can build / deliver:-(
Interestingly they are sending out RS5 Sportback deliveries. America is getting those also, right?
Surmising, might RS4 delays be because of 'Minor Change' Homologation activities (Headlights, Front end Module, Rear Light Combi, etc.), on top of / 'POST' WLTP maybe?
