Hi Josh,Quote...."I have read about the supposed harshness of the ride with 20" rims, but won't this be even worse with the sports suspension?"
I can't answer your other questions, but the reported harshness in the media that i have read refers to the ride of the 20" wheels with the sports suspension. Whether you get the same reported harshness with 20s and the now standard suspension I don't know. But I suspect it would be definately there to some people with 20s and sports suspension.
Hence why I've ordered 19" wheels with the full ADS package. Best of all worlds hopefully. Perhaps you should consider that as an option. Then you will be able to satisfy all your needs at the touch of a button
But you are right it is a shame there is no way of testing before you buy. Even if you had to go to a central location to do it.
Haha, No, I must resistBiffo,
I think you better buy one quick before that Q5S or RSQ5 appears at some point. Maybe next yearYou might be tempted :!:
I have the Spec Edition with 20" and totally agree with the above !!!The worry about the 20" rims is misplaced imho
I have 20" off road rims, sports/sline suspension, and no dampers, drive select or any of that overpriced tat)
If you don't intend to drive through wastelands or rock strewn off road courses, which most of us don't, then go for the 20's and don't waste your cash on the rest - the drive is absolutely superb, never harsh, and the thing handles like a dream - you can really throw it into a bend, and the quattro grips and goes with no drama. It honestly corners like a low saloon car.
I think people get caught up on capabilities that the majority of us won't need. Am I going to be ramping my lovely new Q5 anywhere it can get scratched and bumped, i.e. off road? Hell no! So with that in mind I want a nice, consistent, reliable, comfy drive with excellent handling and cornering, which is exactly what I get with 20's and sports suspension.
I still maintain that drive select will get left in auto and untouched for 90% of the cars life after the initial 3 month 'got to play with everything' urge is gone...
Just my thoughts, we are all different.....
