Try giving my former employer, Langan Motor Car, a call. The end of the
month is the absolute best time to purchase a new car. We were delivering
50% of our new Audis out of the Capital District by advertising in the NY
Times and giving fire-sale pricing. Find out what your local dealer wants
for the car and then give Langan a buzz. They'll deliver it to your door
probably for far less since they are the largest volume dealer in NY (#17
nationally).  They are also more likely to have what you want. 

Dave from Autohaus is correct, the 1.8tq's are in shorter supply. However, 
they are available. The automatics are much harder to get, but can be found
as well. It's a normal procedure for us to sell cars out of state and
deliver them. The number is (518) 374-9161, ask for Rik Woldring. He'll
give you a straight-forward price that'll be highly competitive without any
of the usual BS.
