Loving the sound of that interior. I really wanted a pale interior but couldn't have that and the s line spec. Same with both my Q7's. Not that i'm complaining, mind. Next time though, i'm going to get the interior i want and tweak everything possible with vagcom.

Hi missile,

I work in Dubai, UAE where 3-4 months could mean pretty much anything! I hope its not too far off the mark. There is option to track the shipment either
Hi

I work just up the road from you in Doha. I bought the wife a Q5 (delivered early Sept) in the UK. But I like it so much I am thinking of getting one for myself in Qatar. I am currently driving a Landcruiser VXR but the Q5 is so much nicer to drive. One issue I have is that if I buy in Qatar the only choice you have is colour as they tend to sell a set configuration. If you want to spec the car yourself they are looking for about 75% payment up front. Is Dubai similar ?

Also, what made you decide on the Q5 rather than the Q7. As you'd know, a large size of car really isn't an issue in the Gulf.

I have a Volvo XC90 7 seater already. I chose the Q5 because I want a bit of zip and didnt want to splash out for an S-Line Q7 (3.0FSI 333HP). I went for custom spec as Audi Dubai had run out of stock for the Q5 and the new shipment was roughly the same wait period (a bit of a no brainer for me). I paid 10% for the custom order which is less of a daylight robbery compared to 75% (OMG!)

Welcome to the fourm mate I'm sure you will find it very useful. Have lots of family out in Dubai and Doha too and they love their Q5s and Q7s (Yes they have both!!).

I think more like monsoon here in the Uk

Cars looks great, don't see too many in that colour and with cost of fuel you are on to a winner
