Interesting video

Definitely at least one other tango red in the UK! @z6rs

What this? I don’t have the ability to change ride height

I think that is for the base model, not the Vorpsrung. Also i found out that the convenience key is available on the base model and not on the Vorpsrung... question is why?

You've got DRC - not air suspension. The vorsprung comes with the upgraded suspension as standard... DRC cant be raised or lowered.

Update from my dealer....My car is being held at the factory as it waits for a part to complete but no timescales on this. Then it will be released into the transport system so then Ill be at the mercy of the ports and ferries. If its here by September ill be pleasantly surprised!

At least it wasn't on the ferry that caught fire last week with 3000 new cars on board and sadly one crew member lost their life. Suspected fire caused by an electric vehicle battery......see I knew a V8 was the safer option! :biggrin3:

I had the same call on my A6 C8 black edition (before I went RS6) and then two days later they called to say it was on its way!

Be hopeful!

My Performance ordered on 6th Jan was becoming a bit of a joke with no confirmed build week. Sorry to say I cancelled at the weekend and bought a new RS3 sitting at a dealer. Enjoying it so far and the £67k saving.

So is this just the facelift model as opposed to some special end of life (end of ice) special ?

If so, when do we think it will be released.
I’m being told march for a new order and I’m thinking I should wait for the facelift ?
