Hi All,

Made the leap and ordered a Q5 for January delivery!


TDI 2.0 L S-Line
S Tronic
Tech Pack
AMI
Bluetooth
Hill Hold
Arm Rest
Privacy Glass

Roll on January! Something I didn't notice is there a 12V socket in the boot? Something I find very useful for
charging up laptops etc whilst on the move.

Cheers,

Pete

Hi Pete
Hope you didn't pay for the front arm rest as its standard fit on the S-Line

Hi Pete

Yes there is a power socket in the boot and also one in the back for the rear passengers.

Hi Pete,

Out of interest, do you have any idea as to Build Week? Mine is to be built week 50 for January delivery. Cannot wait!!

Hi Zed,

I emailed the dealer yesterday to see if they had a build/delivery date yet, but I haven't had a response yet.

I have been told delivery will be early January, which is a bit of a pain because of the VAT increase.

I see you have wk50 build date, just out of interest when did you order your car? That may give me an idea
of a build date for mine?

Cheers,

Pete

Pete,

I ordered mine 22 August, 2009. I think that build week has something to do with dealer allocation, so it may not be quite so straight forward. Would be interested to hear your update.

On VAT, it has been suggested that it rather depends on when vehicle is in the country. I have offered to pay all of the money up front prior to 31 December, 2009 in order to get at the old rate. I do not see why this cannot be treated as a 100% pre-payment.

I wonder whether anybody else has a view on this?

Regards,

ZED

Hi Zed,

I've just had the dealer on phone and my car is been built in week 47 and delivery will be week 49 which is a lot earlier than I thought! So basically he reckons I will have the car in the first week of December, Christmas really has come early this year!

Pete.

Pete,

Well done. You save on the VAT also!!

When did you actually place the order?

ZED
Hi Zed

I actually ordered the car and paid the deposit on 6th of this month (October) so they really have pulled their
fingers out!?

Hi there.

I am in Scotland. I was torn between Ice Silver and Datona Pearl Grey. Ended up ordering the latter, but it was a close call between the two!!

Hi All you from down under,
we thought we had a long time to wait for our Q5 up in Scotland but your wait takes the biscuit.
Have attached two pictures of my Ice Silver S-Tronic, they dont show the full car but will let you see the colour.

Hi Bill,

Thank you for you pics, you got me really excited. I can't wait for my car to arrive at June 2010. I have decide to keep Ice Silver as they are low maintenance. But you car looks stunning with S line package. Hows the drive?

Hi Scissors
You wont be disappointed, God knows how many new cars I have had over the years but this one gives you that special feeling when driving about in it, looking forward to your pictures when you get time to post them.
Roll on Saturday
