Hi all,

This seems to be a hot topic at the mo but I cant get any definate answers. Our Q5 is been build week 20(so we've been told) which is around 3rd week in May. Does anyone know if it'll be 2010 or 2011 spec?

Im a bit confused with it all, I'm sure I've read somewhere that 2011 spec starts from April, but not sure. Dealer said when we ordered in Jan, 2011 spec starts from June, dealer now says they haven't heard anything about any change of specs.

I'm thinking that if 2011 spec does have stop/start system and this does reduce the road tax, I wont be impressed.

Can anyone help clarify???

Many thanks.

Yes the start/stop reduces the road tax, it puts it 1 band lower as it drops from 175 to 165 which makes it considerably cheaper both for the first year, and subsequent years tax.

The dealers DO know about the changes in 2011 spec, i found out 2 weeks ago, and the buletins went out to the dealers last week so they all know.

I was under the impression that the spec changes were being implemented on the build line in june, but that im not sure of.

Got an update, the new spec is including stop/start and its including towbar prep( well I think that's what he said) its got a few other bits but can't remember the rest, sorry.
He also said the 2011 spec is starting build wk 21, our cars been brought forward from expected Aug/Sept deliver to wk 20 build, so it looks like we're missing out on the lower road tax and better fuel ecconomy.

Is there anyway we can get our car put back a week so we get new spec?
Gonna speak to sales manager tomorrow to see what he says

Cheers

Thats a big jump forward in build/delivery dates,perhaps the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter
