    Me too....

    Important question AirdaleC7. We believe that option code “E60” (Axle Front Lift Height System) is a switch on your center console that would allow the front end of the car to be raised when approaching a speed bump, a dip in the road, a steep driveway apron or similar. That system info we know from other brands, and know its option code and its description from the leaked Jalopnik specs.

    As to whether it takes 2 second to raise it, whether it raises it 1 1/2”, and what is its price, all are not yet known. My guesses are that the numbers in the last sentence are reasonable estimates, as is my further guess of its $1,499 price. It also will only work up to a certain speed (GM does not want it to mess with overall aero all the time), so consequently as to other ME competitors, my belief it that they would limit it to functioning at a max of around 30 MPH.

    This will be the first option box I check, so I then, with my hope and probability that the C8 would have four corner, individually height adjustable, coil over shocks, allow me us to give our cars the wheel gap I visually want, yet still be able to go up and down reasonable dips — still keeping my splitter undamaged.

    JB, as it is a mechanical/hydraulic option, not an interior visual one, nor relating to interior components, I am thinking it is not tied to 1LT, 2LT nor #LT, but be an individually orderable one.

    This is my hope and plan as of today anyway.
    This will be a great feature to have. My C7 rarely scrapes my driveway but my C4 has the extended air dam in the front that ALWAYS scrapes no matter how I try angle back in. I guess it will eventually wear down enough that it no longer drags

    Yes and if whoever is producing these transmissions is using some part of it for another one or more vehicles this will surely up their production rate of core parts making them more cost effective.

    This. What might be missing in that base configuration that is standard in the C7, or how to option prices compare to the C7 options? If the 2LT package costs $4 grand more in the C8 than in the C7, the new car could get a lot more expensive real fast.

    that seems to be a bargin now that you bring the dct or what used to be an automatic type transmission option at 1800 dollars by itself.

    And of course in my dad's first Beetle, heating was optional -- even if you had the heater.

    The 2019 A8 was increased to $1,995, so if later confirmed would be even a better bargain.

    He did not, but that does not stop it running through my head as to what I believe he will be saying next Thursday. Sorry I was not more precise.

    IMO, we are going to just get a ballpark number next Thursday, not get a specific price. The phrase that keeps running through my head is hearing Tadge say, “If you could afford an entry C7 Grand Sport, you could afford an entry C8.”

    Of course I could be very wrong.
    When and where did Tadge say that?

    We had gotten a base price of $60,400 from a reliable source, So conti is is just $500 under that. But, I as many do feel with certain upgrades as the DCT transmission that $60,400 seems low. It is not impossible but seems low.
