Anyone successful with negotiating discounts? Keen to negotiate a good price to justify some nice extras. Previously gave had 9% and 6% on A3 purchases.

Also considering what extras to go for on a S Line petrol:

Comfort and sound pack £1,250
Seems good value when you see what this comprises:

Electric front seats £700
4 way electric lumbar standard
Advanced key electric boot £525
B&O sound £750

Also wanting:

Virtual cockpit. £250 but need the Technology pack. As far as sat nav is concerned I think Waze takes a lot of beating and it's free!

Hold hill assist £75
5 year warranty £1,255. Private purchase which we'll keep for 5 /6 years

Extended LED lighting £150
Flat bottom steering wheel £100. It's great on the A3

Extended interior upholstery pack £250 - nice to have but is it worth it


Drivers memory front seats £200 - useful with the comfort pack and with 2 of us driving the car

Rear bench seat plus £350 - a forced option when you go for leather

Sports seats nappa leather £800. Look great and leather needed with a child and dog.


Door mirrors folding with memory function £225. Standard on the wife's A3 and a useful visual aid to see if I have actually locked the car!


Metallic paint £645 - must have.


Storage pack £175 - not sure it's necessary but nice to have


Anyone got experience of these and think they are value for money?

I would go for the Sport model then use part of the savings on the Technology pack and have lots of change left over. S-Line changes are purely cosmetic.

The demonstrator I drove had the B&O and, TBH, I didn't perceive it to be any better than the standard set up in the current Q5.

I got 5% discount - wasn't easy due to the new model and when I ordered it. Used carwow and found the same level of negotiation across the main dealer groups.

Tech Pack and virtual cockpit are a must IMHO
I'm biased but Navarra Blue metallic looks great on mine.

Good point, but for me the led lights look great and with the extras you get with an S Line the different bumpers cost less than £200.

VC should be standard or free with tech pack.

Extended lighting is fun, but after 30seconds you set it and your done.
B&O door cards look better, but sound is not really any better IMO.
Hill hold its so little why wouldnt you, but should again be standard. its just software.

If you are planning on keeping it for that long, get the options you like and use,

I always use broadspeed and drivethedeal broker sites to see what discounts are achievable, then attack local dealers with the quotes. If nobody will match them then order through the broker, I've saved £Ks over the years.

Speak to Jonathan at Carfile, he is the country's leading car broker, he introduces you to the dealership and all the transactions are done with them. I purchased my Q5 through Marshall's group and are very keen to do deals, 7% plus discounts are achievable through them.

I presume they'd take payment from a 3rd party lender that are usually cheaper anyway.

I always think anyone who spends nearly £40K on a car then has to stick a phone in their windscreen for Sat-Nav is mental and hasn't thought their purchase through.

Get it integrated and stop messing around with plugging phones into a holder on your windscreen just to navigate anywhere in your gorgeous car - it really does take the icing off the cake.

Agree 100% with that, I'd never buy a prestige car that doesn't have integrated oem nav even though I rarely use it. Always makes me wonder what else the previous owner had skimped on when it's a used car, possibly unfair of me but that's just me.

I almost fell into the trap when looking for my SQ5, saw a stunning car with low miles, very low price and great spec and just presumed nav was fitted as it wasn't mentioned. Turns out it wasn't, the dealer admitted it's sacrilege to not have it these days hence him asking £2k less for the car than most others. He started talking about retrofits but he'd lost my interest by that point!
