Can't comment on price but nice spec.
However, (IMO) cabin is going to look very dark with all that black.
Have you thought about a white / silver / cream contrast stitching to break things up a bit? Would sit much better with the exterior Ibis white

Yes it was considered but wanted to spend the money on other toys rather than seats. The seats are already costing a fortune with electric and heat. Can I get a two tone seat for free

I can honestly state that I don't find my Q5 too dark inside, and others have also said so as well.

I'm sure there will be some people out there who have had a bigger discount, but when I was looking to buy 3-4 months ago 10% was the best I could get from dealer.(after a lot of haggling)

Drive the deal at 11.25% will be difficult to beat, you could take your quote to your local dealer and ask them to match It, you never know!!

I've never used a broker myself, though the feedback from forum members seems to be quite positive..(maybe member can advise)

You also have to give consideration to lead time as a dealer might be able to source a car quicker for you...

.It's your decision blacksta500... but looking at It to get that discount without the hassle of 4-5 visits to dealer negotiating etc I think you've got a cracking price there...

I Agree with that - Drive the Deal could get a cheaper price for me, but had to wait 6 months (as opposed to 3 months from dealer) - went with the dealer as didn't want to wait, but I used Drive the Deal's pricing to negotiate a better rate/discount - basically I got all of my options (just over £3k) for nothing....

I have sent emails to a couple of local dealers - But is it not shocking that Drive the deal could get such deals - No wonder those chaps wear rolex watches - Margins must be massive - On top of that - they even make more money from finance deals

I find dealers do not respond well to e mails. You need to phone and or visit to get best deal.

Not as far as I am aware unless you opt for alcantara in which case you get white stitching. By contrast Audi offer a choice of stitching colour on A4 S line cars.

Just to add clarification here. The dealer sources the car, the broker just makes the introduction. The broker only gets a small % himself from the dealer, so large volumes = good profit. Your relationship and any money changing hands is always direct with the dealer you have been introduced to and with whom you have the deal. Dealers have an allocation of new cars. It may be that one dealer has a longer waiting list than another. It's the dealer, not the broker who has the waiting list. The broker gets corporate or fleet purchase deals from the volume he introduces.
