A4 1.8TQ Manual-3 at dealer

Hello Q-land,

             This is to follow my previous post on the 3 A4 1.8TQ 
5speeds that I've seen at the local dealership for about 3 weeks now. 
I had to call them up today and ask them what's going on as nobody 
else seems to have any of these on dealer lots around the country.  
He explained that the 3 on his lot were part of an Audi ride and 
drive campaign where one could drive the A4 1.8TQ 5 speed to see how 
much they liked the car and compare it to the 2.8 V6 5 speed.  
Everyone loved these cars! The problem? The Department of 
Transportation wouldn't think of letting Audi sell these particular 
A4's to anyone as they are European models of course. This explains 
the Km/hr speedo.  
          I begged him to let me drive one of these today. The 
answer? You guessed it-a definite no since the campaign is over. 
         So why are these cars still on the lot? He says Audi is just 
being lazy and hasn't shipped them back yet. (Anyone know of a good 
hotwiring technician?) He says that everyone drools all over the 
Yellow one! Too bad says I. Guess we'll be waiting till January here.
