I thought it might be quite cool to have a list of all those people on here who have placed a deposit and on what date, it might prove very interesting near the time of specifying and deliveries, certainly was when i was waiting like this for my Focus RS :)

Its also great to be able to point people like Audi at this site and show them how many of the potential owners are right here!

If people add to this thread i will keep ammending this first post so people can look at the list at a glance and arrange it in order of first date an order was placed, follow the same format if possible!

The list so far:

Deposit paid Jan 06. Still only £1,500, and starting to get a bit frustrated with my dealer, getting any information out of him is a nightmare - despite him being based in the London forum, and my specifically asking about 5 times, I am yet to get my invite to go see the car! V glad I went to see it in Paris now, starting to think that's the only time I'll see it before it arrives :mad:

I have been on a list for three years. Currently #3. I have had a deposit of $2,000 for two years.My dealer is in Newport Beach, California. Fingers crossed I should get one of the first cars in the states. The dealer sold more RS 4's than anyone else. Haven't heard about additional monies required just yet.

:D so my local dealer (fresno, ca audi) calls me up on the 7th and says that audi just called and they need some one to put a deposit on the only r8 coming to our dealership the whole year and says that i am the first on the list. I know this might upset many of you who were on waiting lists for so long, but i guess luck had something to do with this since i thought my dreams of owning an r8 were long gone after i heard about the waiting lists and horror stories. So anywayz... u can now add me on the list... 11/7/06... USA... $5,000 deposit...

The car was first shown as the 'LeMans Concept' at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show ... even though it is mistakenly stated by various people as being first shown at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show.

So, while people could have registered interest in 2003 ... I think it's unlikely that anyone would have actually parted with any folding stuff till significantly later ... if you've been told you're the first UK deposit and you didn't part with any folding stuff till mid 2005 in the UK ... I'd be really surprised if anyone actually parted with their hard earned way back in 2003.
