I have a Daytona Gray premium plus with the Sport Plus Package and Navigation.....

Am I the only one who doesn't like this car? I can't wait for my lease to be up. The throttle lag is driving me crazy! Also the B&O Stereo rattles all of the trim pieces like a cheap Hyundai. Classical music makes the glued on iPad nav screen vibrate and emit a higher pitched rattle than the lower pitched rattles and vibration from bass tones coming from the rear parcel shelf and doors.

Oh, and the Audi Navigation system is useless!!! ETA's when taking secondary roads are often off the 30+ minutes on a mere 1 hour drive. Poor routing as well as the system wants to maximize highway time when secondary roads are often faster and many less miles.

i have the same exact car minus the Nav package. I have heard of others that dislike the B&O pack because of the same issue but I havenít experienced anything like that. The only rattling that ever goes on might be from the deck lid in the back and thatís ONLY when Iím blasting it really high with the sub all the way up.

Throttle Response isnít really too much of an issue with me since I went Stage 1 with APR, installed a IE CAI, and ECSíS charge pipe kit. But when I was stock the throttle response on the car is atrocious. The car is really underpowered for the clutch itís paired with which makes accelerating from a stop a lot worse. Adding performance definitely brings out the clutches true abilities

I agree!! When the bottom of my feet are wet, driving with the stainless steel pedals is extremely dangerous because your feet will slip everywhere on those things.

Good to know. I have been toying with the idea of a tune, but I am hesitant to have one done on an in warranty leased vehicle. If I do wind up keeping the car, I will tune it for sure!

To summarize: the 2018 total is higher than 1,015 because Audi separated the cars into 2 different groups.
The most recent numbers I have are from October 2018:

2018 A4 6MT: 1,013
2018 A4 6MT Tech Value Package: 198
2018 A4 6MT Total: 1,211

These numbers will have gone up a bit since then, as they were not final at the time.​​​​​​​
very nice color

Quantum Gray. Before 2019 it was Audi Exclusive in the US. Now itís been added to the standard choices for the S4, S5, and SQ5.

Yes I actually do use the assisted steering all the time, adaptive cruise much less often (but it's still very useful on the highway with the manual transmission).

There were only a couple of months when you could even order a MT6 in the 2017 model year before they switched to 2018 with the matador red and then they also got rid of the comfort adaptive system. You then had to get the sport package to get the sport package to get the sport adaptive suspension which means no beige interior option.
You have a very unique and interesting build. Would love to see pics!

You had me a bit nervous! But, then I tried them out when it was quite rainy (water all over my feet and the pedals) and I had no problem with my feet slipping. My shoes stuck tight to the pedals. I honestly didn't detect any difference from the standard pedals. Except these look nicer. And the car goes faster.
