Do you have an iPhone? I was advised not to choose mobile phone preparation.

Standard speakers are good enough for me.

Have got the B&O speakers in my A3 at the moment and don't think i could go back down to the standard... plus wanted a DAB radio and the extra to get the B&O is only £300 or something


That's interesting re the phone prep... what was their reasoning for it? Just because it didn't work properly? I've got a Google Nexus 4...

I have ordered DAB too. Well worth the cost.

AFIK, there is an issue Audi connect and Apple mobiles and 3G connection is limited rural areas.

We all have different priorities. As you say, don't spoil your enjoyment for an extra £300 on a £40,000+ car.

Looking around I don't think that the Nexus 4 supports Sim Access at the moment either... but I'll probably only have this phone for another year tops and Google may well release a software update before that to enable it anyway...

Take your point about the extra £300 but lots of £300's soon add up

Yeah, tell me about it. I decided I could live without Audi Connect and would use my iPad for accessing Google maps et al.

You could swop your nexus for another android? I know the Samsung Galaxy works well with Audi connect.

spijun: interesting that you'd opt for the sports suspension? Again, things I've read, would not that make the ride too hard?

The difference you will be only get the 'sporty driving where more direct contact with the road
But you need to personally try.
It is best to ask for a test car with sports suspension.

I test drove a car with both and found the standard springs a good compromise on comfort and performance. I also test drove a discovery and the difference between that the the Q was night and day.

Definitely test both, don't spec it without, especially on the 20" rims

I am specing similar car but with scuba blue colour and advanced parking plus adaptive headlights (lots of country roads). Comments welcome on value for money on both versus standard. Cheers.

Have you placed your order? What did you go for in the end?
