I got the same email from a dealer. I hope the timing of the email is significant and not just part of a plan developed months ago. Since the new A6 commercials have been running for over one week, any significant delays in availability would reduce the effectiveness of the marketing effort, indicating disconnect between the planned introduction and events on the ground.
Unfortunately it looks like this was just a scheduled email ad has no significance whatsoever, other than showing things seem to be behind schedule. I talked to the local dealership yesterday and they said they are being told that the A8s and Q8s should come in by early November and pending certification the A6s and A7s will be there by the end of December. Was hoping that the email meant things were moving along but I guess not.

End of Dec, WTF? I really wanted to test drive the new A6 before taking the plunge. Seems like it is going to be only next year.

That is what SCarGuy has been saying also but when I got the email I was hoping the timeline got moved up, does not appear to be the case.

Thatís disappointing, but not that surprising. That means some cars will sit at the port for at least 2 months. I wonder if the shipments to the U.S. will stop/slow until the certification issue is resolved. This delay may mean I canít wait for the new A6.

So, what is required to certify a car? Is it the fiasco of emissions or?

I think it needs to be done each year on all makes/models. The EPA and CARB (California) test the emissions and certify they are within guidelines.

Are any dealerships showing incoming inventory on their websites?

cars.com shows that the 2019 Q7's are at dealerships now but I checked a few of the dealers listed and it wasn't on their individual web site. No other 2019 models show up.

None on the three dealers near me, and they normally include cars that are on order, shown as something like "arriving soon." The only 2019 one of them had was an RS5 (i think that's right) that was gone a day or two later when I checked.

A few people here have brought up air suspension on the A6.

This will be an option at launch for Canadian 2019 A6s, even though it doesn't show up on audi.ca right now. It is on the order guide for Canada. Same thing with the exterior light package for the A8. Not on audi.ca, but it's on the order guide and orderable at launch.
