Hello,

Very pleased, I've just bought but not a Q5...or an Audi (...don't flame me!!!!) Went for an X5 sport in the end with a few tasty options, thrid row seating became very important. Some great deals around on SUV's right now (...wonder why!) Going to hang around though can't wait to see the pics coming in of the new Q5's a great looking car and great features, just not for me this time


Cheers,
Chris

Thanks guys,

Model I have gone for was previosuly out of my reeach. However less mileage now (PCP for me) and dealer discounts have helped greatly.

My spec from stock is as below:-

3.0D Msport
Third Row Seating (v expensive IMO but I like it)
20 inch alloys
Media Pack
Heated Seats
Xenons
Titanium Silver
Black Leather
Paint Protection
Ipod Interface
For the recocord interior brushed Aluminium, window surrounds brushed Alu, roof rails high gloss shadowline.

I got 10% of list and a great trade in on my current 520D plus quite a few 'lifestyle' accessories like roof bars (BMW pair) and bike racks(2). All should be available to me later this week but most likely early next, needs to be Sep for dealer (me too!!) Can't wait, will post a couple of pics...no booing
Just need a call from the dealer tomorrow to hopefully 'pick' my 58 plate, goign to try and get the last 3 alphas to tie up with family initials.

Sounds great. Look forward to seeing the pictures - of course not as much as seeing Q5 pictures from the first member that gets one

Really pleased with the way it looks/handles/size & seat flexibility/technology etc. Msport X5's do look much better in the metal than the pics, the wheel arches and wheels look huge. Also my first BM with Angel eye Xenons, sweet.

Summary of the car
2008 E70 3.0D Msport
Titanium Silver, Nevada Black Leather, Brushed Aluminium Trim, Brushed Alu Window Surrounds, High Gloss Rails
20 Inch MSport Alloys, 3rd Row Seating, Heated Seats, Xenons, Media Pack, IPOD Adapter, Dimming+Folding Mirrors, Shine+Protect Pack

I'll look in every now and then to see how you're getting on with the Q5. As a car nut I'll still be going to Audi as soon as it hits my local showroom. Good luck with the discounts, hope you can nail some this side of 09'

No bad chester you must be pleased, the wheels are nice
IMHO I think BMW have alot to do with the stylling with the X5 and the X3. It still has this brick shape and the back of the car is not that pleasent to look at. I think the Q5 is quite ahead in this aspect but then again the X5 is a bigger car generally.
Still I have not seen anythink that can make me budge.
