Well after a 9mth wait, I picked up my Ibis White truck, just in time for an Easter trip to the Gold Coast.

In one word, it is Epic.

With a very tight engine, I still managed an avg consumption of 44mpg over 1600km, which compares to 41mpg I achieved with my previous A4 B8 2.0T Quattro over the same trip.

That engine just dominates, any rev in any gear, it just pulls like a train. I thought 8th would just be for economy, but it can still delivery real thrust.

Fit and finish are as expected excellent, and while the suspension can get a bit busy on some of the Pacific Highways finest road surfaces , it doesn't translate through to the cabin.

I also thought it would feel a little heavy, but it doesn't, more like it has been hewn from a single piece of granite.

Well worth the wait, given I only drove it for 10mins before signing on the dotted line.

Initially I thought the exhaust was a but qimcky, but now find it spends more time out of stealth mode, even the missus (aka Juha Kankkunen) prefers it to be on.

One happy SQ5 owner.
