Hey all, should hopefully be the proud owner of a new SQ5 on the 18th of Feb when I pick it up from the dealers. I recently sold my e92 M3 as I needed something a bit more practical but obviously I didn't want to loose out on power. I know the SQ5 is over 100 bhp down on the M3 but I think its a good compromise between power, luxury, running costs and practicality.
As far as specs goes if have ordered:

- Monsoon Grey paint
- Magma Red/Black leather
- 20" Parallel spoke alloys
- Extended leather
- Drive Select
- Hill Hold Assist
- B&O Sound System
- Electric Heated Memory Seats/Mirrors
- Mobile Prep - low
- Tech Pack - High
- Underfloor Storage
- Rear Bench Seat Plus
- Towing Equipment
- Flat Bottomed Steering Wheel
- Power Tailgate

Super excited to pick her up. Will get some photos up ASAP.

Happy days. Spec sounds great and similar to what I've opted for. Mine's on the way to the dealers just now, but I'll not be collecting until March so I can wait for the '14 plate.

Oh, and welcome to the forum.

Thanks guys, the wheels are the standard sq5 issue wheels, I kind of wish I had specced the 21" but i suppose there is nothing stopping me getting some later and keeping the 20" as winter wheels.

Not sure you will get winter tyres for 20" wheels, although I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong.

Winters are fine for 20's - just not 21's
