Hi, I'm new to the site (joined today). I've just ordered a brand new SQ5 and been told it will be built around 19th May. Hopefully delivered mid-June. I've added tech pack, heated seats and B&O speakers, is it worth adding the Audi Drive Select or is that just a gimmick?

Gimmick for sure.
You can enable the menu to control the system in 30seconds and given the only control you have on the SQ is over the fake exhaust noise its just not worth it IMO.

Contrary to the view above most owners feel Audi Drive Select is an essential on an SQ5 to get control over the exhaust noises. Yes it can be enabled on VAG.COM but do you have someone who can do that and for that cost?

I would drop the B&O, I went for and even my wife said yesterday about it being nothing special.

Thanks for the reply, I found the link which enables me to retrofit the ADS but I think I'll just ring the dealer and pay the £220, at least that way it won't affect my warranty.

I'm sure I will, I've got a jaguar xf 's' at the moment, which I thought was quick, but the SQ5 I took for a test drive absolutely blows it away!

Thanks for the welcome, I've ordered mine in solid black, but having seen some on here in estoril blue I'm hoping to persuade my wife to change her mind!

I wanted Estoril too, but it's been discontinued. May still be able to get it as a special colour but think it's 2 grand! I was toying between solid black, lava grey and phantom black and went for phantom. Either way I think they are all a pain to keep clean so will be time to buy a decent pressure washer!

You are not kidding, i'll never have black ever again....
its just impossible. saying that the estoril can look dark and time and will in time show marks no doubt.

WHITE is the only colour for me going forward

In my opinion solid black does not look good, the crystal black looks best followed by the pearl effect black.
