Dealer called to say 2nd Feb delivery on my 2.0 TFSI Sline Stronic car the car is now at the showroom garage so Monday will be the big day. Tinged also with sadness as my 5-Series 530D SE car has been brilliant with no bad faults at all.
When I get the change I will post pics and specification.

Great news!
Can't wait to hear what you think of it.
Yours must be one of the first petrol models delivered? (Edit to say except Sam's!) Even the dealers still haven't got the petrol demos yet.

Ah, that's good to know, thanks. Might talk to my dealer and arrange a trip up there. Would be nice to drive the damn thing before I take delivery of one

Well finally received the car on Tuesday after the snow kept me in on Monday. Firstly not happy I ordered the car with 6XL electric folding, dimming, memory mirrors and have got 6XE the folding electric version trying to find out who screwed up, leasing company, dealer or Audi. Secondly the ride is much firmer than I remember from the test drive admittedly this was in a SE on 18" wheels and I have the S-line on 19" wheels which makes you feel all the road imperfections.
All that aside the vehicle is very well put together the sat nav is a dream and the 2.0 TFSI engine a peach with the S-tronic box changing as they state without you noticing it. I like the way the leaver for the tow hook is on the left hand side behind the trim in the boot until you need it and the panel below the bumper easily removes and doesnt spoil the looks of the rear bumper. The seats while on the firm side are very supportive and have great adjustment. Back to the MMI I cannot praise this enough the system is simple to use and very informative and with the 3-zone climate control gives infinate adjustment of the heating the rear bench seat plus is simple to operate and the electric tailgate great with the dirty conditions we have experianced in the snow this week, the Xenons with the adaptive featiure & high beam assist also work superbly. Overall initial impressions are 8/10 the suspension letting the side down but maybe my back and I will get used to it.

I've test driven the SE model a couple of times and it had the 19" 10 spoke wheels, but i didn't think the drive was too firm. My last two Audi's have been s lines and I always thought they were a bit on the firm side, but i thought the Q5 with the leather seats was much easier on my back!

Hopefully you'll put some pictures up soon, congratulations!

Can't remember your full spec. but memory mirrors are only available with full electric/memory seats option, did you have that ?
Can't wait for mine to come now.

The first month with the car and I cant say its any easier on my back I actually ache at the end of even a 30 mile run! the S Line is far to firm for my liking although others may not find it so.
In Auto the space for your feet it fine although its taken me time to get used to how high the brake pedal is after the BMW (prefer the BMW set-up) The auto itself is a gem and you never really notice the shifts and mated to the 2.0TFSI engine the combo works seemlessly, you do however have to keep an eye on your speedo as the acelleration is very swift indeed and you can quickly reach speed limits. The 3 zone climate is precise and definately worth the upgrade and although the sat nav is expensive Im so pleased I opted for this function.
What I didnt bargain for was a cracked windscreen which happened after I turned on the demister first thing in the morning, Audi didnt have a screen in stock so I have waited two weeks for a replacement which finally gets fitted tomorrow so hopefully they replace it without issue. Also finally received the bootliner which is not fully fitting width wise I assume because those with the rail fixing system can then also use it. I went for the one with the fold out bumper protector and its also reversable carpet one side, rubber the other. The rear bench seats are great and give the car that extra versatility a must for trips to the dump or long weekends away loaded up. The space below the floor in the rear consumes at lot of your stuff and is really neat leaving the boot itself clear for those shopping trips etc. the stowage under the front seats is really tiny and fairly useless whereas the doorbins are great.
