Here's a copy of the letter from Audi of America:<br>April 21, 2005<p>To All U.S. Audi Dealer Principals, General Managers, and Sales Managers<p><br>Restricted Sale of Model Year 2006 TT Models<p><br>Model year 2006 Audi TT models are certified as Federal-only concepts. Because Federal-only concepts do not meet California emission standards, these vehicles cannot be sold in California or in states that have adopted California emission standards: New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Maine ( eAdopting StatesĀ). Further, under no circumstances should dealers engage in dealer trades of new model year 2006 Audi TT models with intent of sale in California or the Adopting States. Any sale of these vehicles in California or an Adopting State will result in severe penalties and fines against Audi of America and the participating dealers. In addition, these states may have safeguards in place that may prevent a customer from registering these federal-only vehicles.<p>We want to assure you that the next generation TT (available Spring 2007) will be available for sale in all states. We sincerely thank you for your cooperation and support in adhering to these important guidelines.<p><br>-----------------------------<p>So according this letter these states won't have the next generation TT until 2007:<br>New-York<br>Massachussets<br>Vermont<br>Maine<br>California

Bizarre! One would think that they could meet the standard. Could be their way of reducing inventory next year.

Frankfurt only does cars every other year... so this means a 2005 Franfurt intro (highly doubt this due to the Q7 intro) or a 2006 Geneva intro which is more likely!

By them releasing it in some states makes it look like the blame of the delay is the states not Audi itself. I could be wrong though <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/nixweiss.gif" BORDER="0">
