Ordered on July 28th. Cortina White premium plus Quattro with black interior and headliner. Options include driver assistance package, sport package, 19in wheels, and power tailgate. I purchased it using the ACNA discount and added Audi Care. Loving the car so far and looking forward to the discussion on the forum for modifications. The Q3 is my wife's daily driver and I own a 2011 TTS that is APR 2+.

I'm still waiting for a port release on my car that also came on the Sunrise Ace - what did you do to get it so fast? I actually had AoA expedite mine and I prolly won't see it until Monday or Tuesday !!!
But welcome to the forum - hope you find good stuff here ...

Hello from New Orleans as well. I am actually switching from a Q5 that I've owned 3 years to a Q3. Not only because I like the Q3, but because my Q5, 2012 model year was riddled with issues. I'm not keen on giving up on a car brand as any car can give you problems. Just thought I'd say Hi.

Just curious: Which problems did you have with the Q5?

My ex had a 2012 which developed some water leak issues that the dealer was unable to resolve over an entire summer, eventually resulting in the A/C unit failing and mold/mildew developing in the car - before their technician wrecked it and it was replaced by Audi.

Thanks Roger!

Nick- Not to highjack this post with issues of the Q5 but I had the gearbox malfunction at 5K Miles, 15 days at the dealer. 2 Sunroof malfunctions at two separate times. Condensation build up in the tail lights twice. Last month, The water pump failed twice in a matter of a week. I pick up the car and it idles roughly and sputters at a red light only to return back to the dealer and they've just done the replacement of 2 Fuel Injectors that had build up. They claim cheap gas, my wallet says otherwise as I am super particular with what goes in my cars.

Having had enough issues with the Q5 and while I am now at positive equity for trade in, I opted to get out of the Q5 and went last weekend to New Orleans Audi to try to get into another Q5 or Q7 which would be overkill for a single driver; after considering that both the Q7 and Q5 are coming in for a major redesign in the next year, spending 50K was not warranted, tested the Q3 and was more impressed than I thought I would be. I have a Cobalt Blue Premium Plus with all the works on order due to arrive 2/16/15. I am actually excited!

Wow this is great. You will prolly have one of the rarest US bound Q3s out there. As I understand it, Cobalt was discontinued for ordering in December - so you SHOULD be excited. Can't wait to see pics of this baby!!
