Q5 Colour Conundrum

Hello Q5 Drivers,

After months of deliberation I have taken the plunge and ordered a 2.0TDI SE for delivery on 1st March 2010. I was told by the salesman at the dealership that if I ordered any later, there would be no guarantee of it being delivered on time, so it's 108 days to go and counting.

The biggest difficulty I had was choosing a colour, after having decided that the all black look of the S-line was to bleak for my tastes, my favourite colour, Daytona Grey was ruled out. I initially went for the Quartz Grey with cardamon beige interior, although I was not able to see it as all the cars in the show room had a black interior (why do all Audi dealerships have almost exclusively black interiors?). After finally tracking down a beige interior in a Q5 I decided that it wasn't for me, and have been allowed to change my order to light grey interior and meteor grey paintwork.

Really excited about the prospect of getting a Q5, it's my first venture into SUV's and my first Audi, having previously only driven BMW's. I must say that on the the whole the dealership experiences are first rate and that the advice given on this website is also really useful.

The rest of my specifications are as follows:

5 spoke alloys
S tronic
Technology pack
Storage Pack
AMI interface
B&O sound system
DAB radio
Bluetooth interface
Electric seats with folding mirrors
Rear bench seat plus
Sports steering wheel with paddle shift
hill hold
Tyre pressure monitor
3 zone climate control
garage door opener
interior lights
panoramic sunroof
drive select with damper control

Also got a good deal (15% VAT plus a discount and reduced APR). Can't wait until March!!

I would be interested to hear any opinions with regard to drive select, it seems to me you get the best of both worlds SE and S-line suspension all in one.

Hi Mac... i have a meteor grey 2.0 TDi SE with star silver leather interior. It definitely looks good with a lighter interior and everyone comments on it.

I have the full drive select and in my opinion it makes the ride so much better than the ones I test drove without it. It is great to have the stiffer suspension and extra throttle when you need it!

You will not be disappointed with the car, especially with all those options you have! Only trouble is that March seems like such a long way off!!!!
Mac... It is very easy to set up. You get 4 options on the dashboard:

Comfort - Softer ride and car is easier to steer
Dynamic - Harder suspension and steering is tighter
Auto - The car will decide which mode is better, Comfort or Dynamic.
Individual - You can set this up in the car set up to your preferred settings but i do not really bother with this one.

I have mine on auto most of the time... but slip it onto Dynamic at roundabouts or traffic lights when needed.
