Did you request it or did you get an auto email from Audi? I think my rs5 build is about a week or two behind yours and is headed to MA.

How did you get the update that yours was on the boat? I'm trying to figure out if I need to harass my dealer for more updates or if Audi will eventually communicate them. I got the email from audi telling me it was scheduled to be built 3 weeks ago.

definitely just ask your dealer. they should be more than happy to help with their $5K they make on this car

yes, you have to harass the salesman, Audi does not give customer status updates like BMW does. Actually just harassed my rep this morning and my car will be in port 5/12!

mine was 11 days from when it hit port in Savannah, GA to when it arrived at dealer in Atlanta. apparently customs and unloading takes a lot of time.
