Hello all,

New member here from Melbourne, just ordered a SQ5 on the weekend. Excited until I heard the delivery date of June. Oh well part of the thrill I suppose.

Added.
  • Sunroof
  • B&O sound
  • Assistance package... for the misses
  • 21" wheels
  • and a few little bits here and there.
Quick question. The brochure and all the images for the 21" wheels state 5-twin-spoke star design in titanium look. My invoice states 21" Audi Excl 7twin star alloys.

Just wondering if anyone here has a pic of them as I have not seen the 7twins anywhere on the SQ5 and I'm not sure why they were added. I am going to go back to the dealer to have a chat, just to see if its a typo and im getting the listed ones as they look mint.

Cheers

Welcome mate, I think it was just a typo as I don't think Audi offer any other 21" wheels for Q5/SQ5.

Welcome to the forum Wadsy.

As Ray says above the 7 twin-spoke wheels are 20". The only 21" are the 5 twin-arm.

Interesting that the 7 twin-spoke and Estoril is still available in Oz... They both were discontinued in the UK at the beginning of February.

Check out http://m.audi.com.au/au/mobile/en/models/q5/sq5.rim.gpqfpqf.color.f14_k0k0.cover.msibn3m-f56_____xo.inlay.meih5mk.html?crl_cd=1 for pics...
Thanks for that, I better follow up as I have requested 21's not 7 spoke 20".

The dealer told me I was only able to get the Estoril by a matter of days due to it being discontinued shortly.

Just snuck it in.

Just to update for anyone who cares...


7 spoke was a typo and Estoril Blue is only available to cars manufactured up to week 14. After that Sepang Blue replaces it. Am I right in thinking that this is when the MY15 starts their builds? If so I am getting one of the last MY14's before model change, wonder if I should just get the MY15?

Do we know anything about the MY15 yet? any features or spec changes for this model?

Unless the Estoril blue is a deal-breaker, I would always go with the new MY version. Personally, I would not choose Sepang, but I would compromise with another colour to get the (as yet unknown) MY15 features.

Yeah not a fan of the sepang. Yeah I would really like to know what the new features are if any. I get the feeling that no other options really changed, that it will be a small update.

When do features usually get announced?

Well, if week 14 (end March) is the last production week of MY14, the MY15 spec must be known already. Maybe Snow Man can help?

Is Sepang definitely replacing Estoril for the SQ5?
I quite like Sepang but I notice Moonlight Blue (which I don't like) has appeared on the configurator.
Any views/sources welcome - I am keen on a blue car but resent paying for an exclusive colour.

Nope no confirms about Sepang being a replacement and typically Sepang is an RS colour (RSQ3 for example), I think if you aren't a fan of Estoril or Moonlight the best way to go is Exclusive...we were going to with Daytona Grey but opted out as Lava was similar.

Moonlight blue I think has always been an option as we were considering when buying our SQ too but wanted something with more shades of colours so went Lava

Hope this helps!

Moonlight was available along with Estoril when we ordered our SQ5 last year, however salesman was driving a A5 sportback in Moonlight and to me it looked a little dull. All the launch images had been Estoril so it became an easy choice as going down the PTS route would have delayed things
