Tell you what’s annoying me now - all this talk of tax/VAT cuts. Should’ve gone for a factory build and just waited and waited.

Looks seriously good. Mine will be that colour when it eventually arrives after a wait of 8 months.

Hi K76, I am in the same boat as you. I ordered the same car 20th October 2021. About 2 weeks ago my dealer contacted Audi Customer Support and found out that it had been built less a few components. Currently Audi estimates that it will be shipped from Mexico sometime in August this year.

Picked the car up today - tried to post a pic in new thread but not letting me for some reason.

The MMI bits have changed a fair bit from the previous Audi but have to say behind the BMW iDrive (on first impressions…that could obviously change)

Don't hold your breath but I have received an email today to state that my Q5 is being shipped. With all the waiting Audi has made a happy man very old :).

At last some good news! :) Hopefully won't be too long now.

I'm loving Navarra Blue. Such a deep colour and looks tremendous when the sun hits it.

I received the “Our work here is done” email on 21 April and picked my Q5 up last week - so 7 weeks after the build was completed.

Serious question, how do you guys get those updates via email? Getting info from my dealer is like squeezing water from a stone.

In the U.K., Audi U.K. send a few standard (automated?) emails at key points in the order process. For example, build complete, in transit and arrived in the U.K. They don’t come from the local dealer.

Other than the colour how are you liking the car ??
It’s outstanding! A real step up from the VW Tiguan in refinement. Much quieter and smoother and a real quality feel all round. It’s such a pleasure to drive. With getting on for twice the horsepower, it feels much quicker off the mark already which will improve once properly run in.

Only been for short drives so far but it feels very comfortable and will be well suited to longer trips, particularly with the adaptive cruise control.
The MMI and virtual cockpit are a great size and high definition with good customisation options. The higher location of the MMI makes such an improvement to the screens usability.

Very pleased with the Q5 and looking forward to going on some longer trips! 😁

We took a trip to Cornwall from London at the weekend and had no aches when we got there and used less than half a tank each way 👍👍
