When I was in my dealer on Monday that sales guy said that SQ5s are coming through with about 30 miles on the clock as the factory do a road-test of each vehicle. Having a suspicious mind I wondered if that was code for 'we need to use yours for a customer demo before you get it'.

So for those of you with an SQ5 already delivered - how far had it been before you got the keys?

Don't know about the SQ5 but my Q5 had 26 miles on the clock. Some of that is the post PDI road test that the dealer is supposed to do.

i did think the same as you when i got mine and it had 27 miles on the clock, sounds like your dealer is telling the truth!

Just got a call from my dealer - mine will be with them tomorrow so can pick it up Saturday morning. Will check the mileage then for you but seems from the above that just under 30 miles is about right.

Thanks for the rapid feedback all!

Just phoned the dealer sales admin (salesman is on holiday) and they have the vehicle at their PDI centre right now - I'm curious as to why I have to wait until the 15th of May. I've asked to see the vehicle - awaiting a call back.

Does seem odd John if the car is with them - mine can't get it to me fast enough. Takes up space on the forecourt otherwise!

The dealer's PDI sheet should record the amount of miles travelled.

It also depends if the dealer has a main pre delivery compound for several sites. My dealership has a main pre delivery compound for 4 surrounding sites. Sometimes the car will get driven from the main compound or if they have enough cars they'll use a transporter (which you'd hope and expect).

My Q5 was transported which meant it had just 9 miles on clock (8 for PDI + 1). My previous car was driven from the compound which is 20 miles away which meant it had 30 ish miles on the clock when I picked it up. Far from ideal and I didn't like it but I rejected that car in the end so it didn't matter

Eh!!? Get tae ....
If it is in PDI then you will have it for the weekend (if you want it) otherwise they are messing about to meet targets which is fine if they tell you and throw something your way. Do dont have a private reg do you?

Yup, have a private plate - they have had the V5 of the interim A1 for two weeks though.... I'm going to see if I can have it for Saturday even if its on a 13 plate for a couple of weeks....

Regarding delivery mileage...
My dealer does a 5 mile round trip for every car as part of PDI.
Average mileage from factory is 20 miles.
Varies due to different amount of time spent on the rolling road checking for rattles/sweaks etc.
Most extreme case he has seen is 100 miles from factory!

Just got back from viewing the car in the dealer's PDI compound - there were two there in Estoril, the other being the Group CEO wife's car - similar spec to mine but all black interior and 21" wheels.

16.6 miles on the clock. The car looks great and the lunar silver seat inserts/Carbon Atlas inlays. I'd spec'd 'Engine badge deletion' and it's on the order form, there is no SQ5 badge either I see - so that's probably a mistake on the vehicle order.

The 20" wheels are shod with Michelin tyres - truly an arm and two legs when they need replacing.

deleting the engine badge deletes all the badges apart from the small one on the front grill.
