rs3 I get what your're saying. I had the same dilemma when placing my order and the blank stare on the dealers face made me check the steering option as well.
You see audi takes great pride in re-arranging you dash/console very badly for each option you "dare" not to tick.
Look at this pic:
Just a few examples:
- You think I'll save up by going for the standard leather. You see that nice stiching (or better yet leather) on the door handles? Think again. You need to pay up.
- You think you'll save up by going for the single zone ac. I mean you'll never use the 3 zones. See those nice knobs/controls on the dash. Yep, them too.
- You think who needs fancy mmi? See those nice buttons/jogs around the gear level? Those will be replaced by vast amounts of nothingness.
- Who needs advanced key? See that big shiny start button?
- Who needs hill hold? Well if you want the button under the parking brake to actually look like a button instead of something you "should" have ordered and didn't...
- Who needs fancy radio? Haven't you learned anything?
Audi takes also pride in combining options in such a way you have to pay ???? for something that should costs ??.
- Would you like your mirror to tilt when you back up? You must order memory seats.
- Would you like 10gb of storage for your songs? You must order mmi high hd & navigation which is like 5k I think.
- Would you like to connect your iphone to listen to music? You must buy mmi, ami, iphone cable. What about usb? Buy another cable.
- Light in makeup mirror? Standard in vw polo. I think it's light package in q5 or something else package.
- You like the perforated leather on the steering? S like package = ????
So rs3 make sure you read up on that options list. Happy reading.
Just had a quick look through your options list and I didn't see 3zone ac and adaptive cruise control there (which comes with brake guard - ofcourse you can't order brake guard by itself). ACC is by far the best toy on the car. Set it at any speed (well almost), adjust the distance to the car infront (4 settings) and sit back & relax. Almost like a jumbo jet auto pilot. Car brakes & accelerates by itself as cars come & go. You need to test drive this! Brake guard is great even in city, a/b roads & motorways. Always activated (unless you press the esp button). If for example you are momentarily distracted by the hottie across the street and quickly approching the car infront who has also slowed down to check out said hottie the system will beep. If you're still distracted it will stab on the brakes to wake you up and boost pressure in the braking system getting ready for maximum braking force. The first time I felt the jolt (ignored the beep as was late & pressing on) it shook me pretty hard. Now I've gotten used to it.
