Hi All,

Just wanted to throw a quick message up to say Hi. Seems this is a UK centric site, but thats ok, as it also seems polite, which I appreciate. The wife and I just ordered a 2012 Q5 yesterday. We got the 2.0T gasoline engine, premium + package with nav, advanced key, all weather floor mats, and standard wheels. Exterior color is Phantom Black Pearl, and the interior is Cinnamon Brown. We should be able to take delivery the first part of April. I can hardly wait. This will be our first Audi. Anyway, Looking forward to browsing the forum, and seeing what kinds of cool stuff is being done.

Mike

Hi Mike and welcome this is my first Audi too. 2 months of ownership and loving it.

Get yourself the tunerdomes LED upgrade (USA based company) if you ordered the interior light pack it's awesome!

Not sure what the interior light pack is? We have very few options available here in the states. For the 2.0TSFI we get premium or premium plus, with two wheel choices. Navigation, B&O sound, 19" 5 spoke wheels, and advanced Key are really the only options we get, if you go with premium plus. These are the "standards" for Premium plus. Pretty nicely equiped...

There are a handful of dealer installed things too, like the all-weather floor and cargo mats, splash guards (mudflaps), wheel locks, exhaust tips, etc.

If you move up to the 3.2L V6, then Prestige and S-line become available. I wanted the gas milage of the 4, and it really didn't perform much differently than the 6, so here we are. Its still MUCH nicer than any vehicle I've ever purchased before. I really like the S-line 20" wheels, in a titanium finish, so we decided to get the four, with the base wheels, and then watch Ebay for a nice set of factory take-offs.

Finally picked her up yesterday. Got a quick couple of pictures. So nice to have it sitting in my garage now...Can't wait to start making it mine. First on the list is to paint the brack calipers. Don't want that raw aluminum getting all corroded and nasty. Then I'm definitely going to replace the stupid incandescent interior lights with LED's...can't believe a company who prides itself on advanced technology doesn't install them as a matter of course. Anyway, here are a couple pics...

Wife looking all happy with her new ride!

Hello from Detroit!
Got my 2012 Q5 2.0t in Phantom Black just a few weeks ago, and I am impressed with the ride ( I have a 2011 A5 Cabrio 2.0t also), as this is the first SUV type vehicle I have ever owned.
I think I will always own an Audi now.
