Hi Everyone,

Another new boy to your forum and to Audi's.

I think I read nearly every SQ5 post on the forum, which helped make my mind up on what to buy.

With an 8 month wait ahead of me, what better way to pass the time , than to read the feedback of the group.

Many thanks

Paul

Hi Jose & Quattro,

I went for a Phantom Black SQ5, 21" wheels, which I only chose after a lot of reading on here, Drive Select, Tech Pack High, HHA, heated seats, electric mirrors and black/ silver interior.

Hi Daza69,

I'm looking at May/ June, so worse case is 8 months. I can't hold any longer than that, I'll go mad.

Hi Dogzyboy,

Panther is definitely the better black but I was running out of funds!

The long wait begins . . . .

Welcome Paul. I think the SQ5 looks great in black, since my current 2 cars are black, I fancied a change and went for estoril...

8 months seems an awfully long time to wait Paul, did you try any other dealers? The dealer will only be able to order so many Q5 each month, with a certain number called off each month. So if one orders from a dealer with a big order book of outstanding Q5s it can take months for your order to reach submission.

Typically Audi can take an order (assuming no critical component shortages) and produce a car in 8-12 weeks - as was mine.

Hi Sq5john

It's a company car, on 3 year contract hire and I have had much to do with the organising, just the nice bit of speccing it. I'm now being told May 2014 delivery, so that 6-7 months. I had to wait 7 months for the BMW Msport I have at the moment, so used to the wait.

OK, my ill fated Evoque was a company car and I was able to specify the supplying dealer (similar order call-off routine to Audi). The default dealer used by the leasing company was in Coventry and they quoted me 12 months (yes really in Dec 2011) by using the same dealer group and their Stratford-upon-Avon branch the dealer got the wretched thing in 6 months. If you do go down the road of playing the dealer order book game and switching dealerships (the leasing company isn't usually bothered as long as the deal is matched) then do make sure that the sales commission is retained by the sales person in the supplying dealer...they are people with lives to finance just like us.
