    It's overdue - was meant to be uploaded last week but seems to have been put on the back burner for cabriolet sales promotion and R8 launch. My dealer tells me he STILL hasn't got full pricing. I have been given approx on most things but nothing concrete.

    Most dealers are getting 2-3 for initial launch. So for my dealer, 1 has to be launch / demo car, 2 for customers. 1 of those two customer cars has to be reserved for an Audi "ambassador" - basically someone who buys **** loads of RS / S products. The other customer car is going to have every option box ticked including the carbon ceramics. I suspect they do know the full pricing as they have ordered a speculative customer car with every option box ticked.

    My dealer is getting their first batch mid-August and then next 3 of their allocation will land October time. I think you will be VERY lucky if you can get one of the initial cars. Worth asking your dealer the question though....:)

    As I have a Riviera Blue sedan, I can tell you that a lot of people ask you about it and whether they can get the colour as standard.

    If you want something that is different, then its worth the wait (same for any Exclusive colour really). You just have to ask yourself whether you can look at it everyday for however long you plan to keep the car. For me, I plan to eventually make my car a track car once its replaced in 3 years.

    Riviera Blue has quite a few different shades to it depending on the mood of the sky (as seen below)

    After much deliberation I have decided to just stick with Sepang and wait for the S-Tronic to arrive. I don't really fancy driving across Europe with a manual due to my bad legs as that was the hole reason for getting an S-Tronic. So I think it's best to just stick with the current order and get it as quick as possible so I can hand the manual back.

    Next order will definitely be a reviera blue though, and possibly on a RS3 if available. I'll keep the S-Tronic S3 for around a year before thinking about ordering a RS.

    @Kimmy.E not sure if you have made your decision yet but I passed a Riviera Blue SB a couple of days back and in the flesh i thought it looked s**** IMHO

    Will see if I can pull a picture off the Dashcam, but I have done lots of miles in the last few days so might be overwritten already

    Stuck with Sepang in the end. Couldn't justify the price tag!
