Just received the following from U.K. dealer.

" As to the availability of the 2.0TDI S-Tronic, as far as I am aware Audi have no current plans to introduce this model but I will make further enquires to confirm that. "

Received today from Audi U.K.
Good morning
Thank you for your email dated 2nd October 2008 regarding the Audi Q5
Unfortunately there are no plans as yet for there to be an S Tronic gear box available on the Audi Q5 2.0TDi.
Kind Regards

do you think there is a technical reason for this? or just economics? i.e. tempt people into the 3.0tdi to get the diesel/S-Tronic combination?

Economics I would think, new model high demand limited options to simplify production schedules, as sales and interest drops bring in the variants and options to keep interest and sales up.

We will get 3.2 petrol V6 next year and base spec.cars below the SE models, my dealer thinks there will be a 2.7 V6 diesel and a 140bhp 2.0 Tdi model towards the end of the year.

Speak to your dealer I suppose....but most are denying that these models will even exist. They want to sell the models that are available now. Take the model code (don't know if its the same code for LHD & RHD) and just keep annoying them until you find one that wants your order.

Take it to your dealer and put down a deposit.
Are you near Italian / Swiss border ?...buy in Switzerland...
Thanks a lot! No, i'm from Sicily, south part of Italy, near Africa

In your country there are discounts? In Italy, for example, the invalid (down) people can buy the AUDI A4 with 11,5% of discount. In your country these discounts exist?
