My A5 Has Arrived

Well after a ~5 month wait my custom ordered 2009 Audi A5 S-Line has finally arrived. I have to give a huge shout out to Nathan Spencer over at Cavender Audi who helped me through the entire processes and actually moved me into an unexpected allocation which shaved months off my order time (thanks Nathan!). The car is beautiful, everything I thought it would be and more. I’m really glad Audi changed the S-Line seats to Alcantara, the faux suede is awesome. I’m still breaking in the car “somewhat” easily, so I haven’t gotten on it too hard, but for being the 3.2L V6 it has some POWER, especially in DYNAMIC mode via Drive Select — another MUST HAVE if you are picking up an A5/S5. Gas has been great, B&O sound is great, lots of trunk space. I just cannot say enough good things about this car. My only complaint is that I liked the Nav system in my Lexus better, and I believe Audi has a brand new MMI/Nav system coming out later this year that I’m going to miss out on, oh well. I took some shots yesterday after cleaning my car for a few hours, enjoy!

It's Alive!

So I had one of the helpful members at the www.audiworld.com forums which I frequent run my Audi commission number (order number basically) and they confirmed that it now has a VIN, meaning it has been built. This is great news and means that the dates I was given by my dealer are fairly accurate. According to my last update my car should have been loaded on the boat this past week and be on its way across the pond. It is scheduled to arrive in just a few weeks but I cannot wait! It will end up costing me a lot of money, but I think it will be worth it. This may very well be the nicest car I will ever own, although I hope not, I am going to enjoy it while I can.
