Hi all, Has anyone had a build date for an S-Line Q5 yet?
Nothing showing apparently on my order (3rd Oct) and according to the original blurb they were going to start building around this week.

Thanks guys.
Timd - what date did you order yours?
Off to drive the 3.0l TDI tomorrow
The dealer has a 2.0TFSI in the showroom but apparently they are not allowed to drive those yet

Metin,
It was a 2.0D manual so no 2.0TSFI's in sight.
PS The 3.0D was out so I drove the 2.0D manual. Will write a report later but I was very impressed

Hi Andy,

Should be nice to read your report. I have always driven manuals and never had a auto. but the S Tronic was great on the 3.0TDI and I've always thought BIG CAR has to be auto and I'm fed up chaning gears !! I really want to know what it was like driving the Q5 in a manual ??

The manual was great to drive. See my report in the readers drives section for more details.

Hi Mike,
I thought the 2.0TDI drive was excellent as well. Definitely a superb car to own!

Hi Sam,
It would be really useful to know when they told you this date and what dealer you ordered through (if indeed you are in the UK?). I was told by Audi UK yesterday that S-Lines won't start being built until end Jan beginning of Feb.
Don't necessarily believe them as they are probably trying to get me off their back as I hit the roof as my build date for my 2.0TFSI S-Line ordered 2nd Oct is currently confirmed for early Feb, so early March delivery - not happy


Cheers

Andy

Thanks Tim, it's good to have this info as it was Audi UK who gave me the info and not the dealer. More discussions with them tomorrow!

Been in touch with my dealer (UK) and still on track for mid Jan delivery. Apparently some early orders got through before Audi had to pull S Line due to a parts shortage but they are now back on availability with build recommecing in Feb 09. Hope this helps.
