reeves in tampa confirmed the 3.2 can be ordered with the side/rear window shades and the tire pressure monitor, don't know about the 2.0. also-i think you have to get the nav system for the latter option but not sure.
place an order now in the US and you'll get your car by mid march. 2005.5's will be built until around very early may. any car produced after that shall be a 2006.
ps- that quartz gray looks almost like the lunar silver of the nuvolari.

It's about time. It only took Audi 5 years to equip the U.S spec cars with a real NAV system with a map, while all the other makes have had them for about 5 years. I guess "never follow" means just that. Next time Audi, don't lag behind for five years.

Audi of America decides what comes here and what does not! :)
But you are absolutely right!
It is about damn freaking time!!
I ordered a B7 myself with the nav.
Mine is Quartz Gray/ Ebony 2.0 Quattro 6 speed manual.
Power Rear shade and manual side shades (Yep available on the 2.0)
Should be here in March.

I can't wait to see the B7s in the flesh. I saw the new A6 the other day. The grill looked mean. I guess pictures don't do it any justice. I would even venture to say that it was the nicest looking grill I've seen on any car at any price (imo). On top of that, the Xenons weren't even on. And everyone knows that Audis have the prettiest Xenons on planet earth. Hopefully the grill will look just as good on the smaller B7.

I'm betting it will look just as nice on the A4. All my friends made fun of the grill of the new A6...that is, until they saw it in person today. One of them even said "Wow, you hardly notice it with a license plate on it."

think twice about how you intend to pay for it. AFS will not have the same great rates on the B7 as they do on the B6.

It will have very good residuals and I doubt that the rates will be much higher than what they are right now!!
They have to be selling them and since we do 90% Premier Purchases, they will do something.
Then again, it depends what market you are in.

however,I think you'll be surprised how much the rates rise with the first of a new product. I hope I'm wrong. (but I'm probably not) :)

Maybe in the 3-4% compared to the 1% at this time.
The new A6 is quite low and is barely more than what the 2004 A6 was.
