That's a great colour. Are there any bits missing? I don't have the phone charging mat. Now the manual, good bedtime reading.
Nope - nothing missing. The phone charging mat isn't a thing any more (well, it wasn't when I ordered) so I knew it wouldn't be part of the package. All there, all good. Lovely to drive :)
I only have two small things...
1) There's some sort of small screw or nut rolling around loose under the passenger seat. It sounds like it's in some sort of cavity and I can hear it rolling around when stopping a bit sharpish, or go round a corner a bit quickly. I don't really want to take it back for it as I suspect it won't be a while you wait job while they dig it out.... but not sure I can live with it :( Not sure if there's anything I can get to under the seats to find it myself?
2) Apple Carplay. Maybe it's my phone... but I have a nightmare getting Siri to listen to me calling for it... and worse still, around 20 seconds after plugging my phone in, it wants me to unlock the phone so it can connect to carplay - by which time I'm already pulling away... a big pain.. have I missed something obvious in a setting somewhere?
Still - the car - even though a standard 40 TDi 2.0 is a lot nippier than I was expecting. The steering will take a little getting used to as there is it definitely oversteers a little compared to my previous car (and also to my wife's Q2) though its only really apparent when I turn into a new road / sharp corner at lowish speeds - find myself occasionally steering past straight and have to correct. But love it - and this colour really stands out in a car park :)

Shame about the rattle but they are great cars! Mine still makes me smile every time I drive it! I never use Apple Carplay but find the Audi satnav pretty good with the Google Maps overlay. Have you tried the different drive select settings as they seem to make a difference to the feel of the steering?

I only really use the Apple Carplay for Spotify really, I'll have a fiddle :) I've stiffened up the steering a little in the Individual settings. it has stiffened a bit, but doesn't make a difference to the slight oversteer. Just something to get used to :) Awaiting a callback from the service team to book in for the loose thing.. :(

When the status is 38 it means that your Q5 is on the dock ready to be shipped. From then it is 6 to 8 weeks until you collect it.

Audi are taking it back for a couple of days next week to have a look at the screw thing. They fear it won't be a while you wait, so they've sorted me a courtesy car for 3 days. Fingers crossed it's an easy fix - but I think they'll have to take the seat out to get to whatever it is. Still - 10 days with the car now, and still loving it. Had a couple of decent runs out in it as well as pottering round town, one of those was a 65 mile round trip to Brighton in that horrendous wind and rain the other night - the car purred along beautifully, sure footed and felt planted on the road. Got about 41mpg out of it too which I thought was OK. About 6 miles of local roads, 5 miles of country lanes, and the rest (54 miles-ish) was fairly decent A roads.

Bet you your Q5 is in for less than a day. It is a solid fault and to take the seat out/in takes less than half an hour. You won't get real mpg figures until its logically run in, usually about 10k miles.,

Still no update on my Q5. It was due to be built this week 43 but dealer has confirmed no change no sign of it being built. Has anyone else had this issue where the week hasn’t changed but still not been built?

Catching up with all the comments I think I was lucky, like mwcltd.
Ordered 55 TFSIe November 2021, took delivery 13th September, but this was only 2 weeks after the date I originally asked for when I placed the order.
Have now done over 5,000 miles and love it. Just the wireless charging mat missing, which I did use all the time on my previus diesel Q5, but have already got used to plugging in the phone charger everytime I jump in. USB-C socket under the armrest.
The dealers, Vindis Peterborough Audi, told me Audi have stopped the 55 model and only supplying the 50 due to the micro chip shortage.
I wonder if that explains the much longer delays?

You can purchase an after market charging mat. Mine works really well :)

Good news! I have now had it confirmed that my card has been built and has a chasis number - status 30.
I have been told they are built in Mexico however the screenshot states the location is Emden which is Germany.

How many weeks have people waited? I have been advised it's 12 weeks normally.

Thanks:)

They are built in Mexico and shipped via the Port of Emden in Germany. It takes about 6-8 weeks to reach the dealer from Mexico. It’s about 2 weeks to the dealer from Emden.

Thanks mate. Hopefully quicker than 12 weeks then.
Is that recently?
Mine was delivered in June but this seems to be what people here are experiencing in the last couple of months. It can vary a bit depending on the shipping and transporter availability. It will be worth the wait!😊
