    Re: R8 info for U.S. dealers

    Thanks a million Ron for the info ! You are a man of great talent and resource. Will you be getting the V8 or V10 engine?

    Re: R8 info for U.S. dealers

    Thanks much for the vote of confidence .

    Since I'm the second guy in the list of my dealer would be a V8.

    Re: R8 info for U.S. dealers

    Nice Ron! Be sure to post plently of pics when she arrives. Btw what's the ETA from your dealer?

    Re: R8 info for U.S. dealers

    I'm impressed! How on earth do you get this kind of information?

    Re: R8 info for U.S. dealers

    Interestingly, Audi dealers in Australia were sent very similar letters late last year. Guess Audi only wants dealers who can afford to pay a premium to sell the R8. Ie. the bigger and presumably better dealers.

    Re: R8 info for U.S. dealers

    To become a selling dealer you must commit to $100,000 before selling the first car that means that you make no profit until after 18 or so cars. They must throw launch party buy tools, pay commission...so how much over list do you think some of these dealers are going to ask? Some of these dealers in smaller markets will not get 18 cars in two years. I don't know about the committment from lots of dealers.

    With less than 5000 cars in total annually, even 18 cars in two years might be ambitious for many dealers .

    All the dealer told me is that they've past my name to AUDI already and I'm #2 in the list. But no info as to what the price or the specs for the U.S. would be.
