Sadly I wasn't driving, but got taken out in one by my dealer.
I have to say I was very impressed. Sounds amazing (which to me is it's big USP), the engine is amazing fast, alomost petrol like when pinned to the floor, but is also a very smooth drive from both engine/transmission and suspension. It is clearly firmly set up, but it rides so smoothly as well (on 20" wheels). I think they really nailed the set up.
Looked lovely in Glacier White.
Really looking forward to getting the wifes now... only 3 months to go...

Jamie - Have you got a confirmed build week yet and did you visit our dealer for the test drive?

Was getting the brakes swapped out on my TT and the SQ5 was sitting outside. Heard one of the sales guys chatting about it and asked for a go. I didn't have my driving licence with me so a pax ride was all I could get. It was enough to keep me satisfied until it arrives.

Ah - fair enough! Still a while to wait mind! In retrospect it wasn't that long - but during the 4 months it was agonising!

This was just at my local dealer. No confirmed buld week yet, but a mate who ordered one 3 weeks before me just got his in last week of July so looking on track for mid Sept.

If you find the time Jamie pop back with your licence and book a test drive or demo loan, you will love it much better than sat shot gun !! All the best Merlin

I did think to do that... but scratching the itch and having a drive may make the itch worse in the long run if you know what I mean!
I'm reassured I've bought the right car over the Sline 3.0tdi which is the main thing.
