Wait until the speakers settle in... the sound gets better over the first couple months of use.

Thanks, Colts...the kick pad is for Little Cha and that hammock is a bit overkill.

Unless little Cha has four legs and a tail.



Not bashing your son BTW, cute kid, saw the Halloween costume photo a while back!



Seriously, made on headrest, either a fashion statement, or an idea stolen from a 90's Ford.



I have a question, are the headrest headed with the rest of the seat then?

Sorry, you asking if the headrest is one piece to the seat? I had mentioned that...it's not a traditional headrest where you can pull it off and adjust the height -- it's just one piece and non-adjustable.

In this pic I had posted, you can see what I mean:

Yeah, I read that, that's why I asked, however, it looks like a traditional heasrest in the picture, is it power adjusted, like in high end Benz and Lexus cars? Maybe that's why then.

I was afraid it was like an old Ford when I read that.

The headrest isn't adjustable in the sport seat. It's much more comfortable than the regular seats in the A4, but the lack of adjustable headrest takes some getting used to.

Not hating on Audi, IMO the original S5 is still one of the most gorgeous cars ever made (not to mention the R8 of course), but the new ones just don't seem to have the same stylistic impact to me anymore. I've also always disliked the massive front-overhang on Audis but that's just nitpicking. My favorite current Audi is definitely the RS7 which is simply stunning, and they still do some of the best interiors in the business...

The A5 and its variants are my favorite Audi and have been since it's release... and the Sportback is just as sexy.

Congrats on the purchase and enjoy it!!

Hopefully they're better than MB's version. Not a fan of the massage in my grandmother's '15 S550. Feels like golf balls pushing into your back.

Also, and unrelated directly to this thread.

What's up with the forum showing a 'next page' to the thread, but when you click on it, it jumps to the top of the page you were just on?

IE: I was on pg 7, and saw that there was a pg 8, but my post above #176, is the first post on pg 8

Have seen this on a few other threads as well. Was a common problem on the F150 forum when people posted from mobile via a 3rd part app (tapatalk or something else). First I've seen it on here was this week.

Winter "mod", I guess...and almost a must-have given how scary it can get. The region is about to plunge into polar temps this weekend...I think with windchill, approaching numbers where C and F meet.

And ...e-mail arrives that the sign-in issue I was yammering about with svtmike about earlier has a TSB. So, the car is looking for a SIM card that is not needed which needs to be over-rided...this is why I was unable to enter my 8-digit numeric PIN. Whew, I know I'm an idiot but this is not an ID10T issue.

Car going in for a checkup tomorrow.

It's supposed to get down to 32*F this weekend here, does that count for anything?

It's very possible if Saintor ever got his car (I beat him to mine ), he will be going in for this TSB too.

But, yeah...German gotta German.

I think the reason why they haven't had that much impact is that they haven't deviated too much from the prior models. For good reason - the Audis of the past decade look incredible. Whereas with the B8 (2008/2009) A4, that was a drastic and striking change, and fresh in peoples minds at the time.

And yeah, the 2016+ Camaro as well as the 718 Cayman are two of my favorite looking cars on the road today. No, they also haven't changed all that much from their predecessors, but I like them all the same.

Btw, those sport seats look striking. I really like the "quilted" leather look. Very exotic looking.

Yeah, the interior has some definite presence. It's just gorgeously laid-out.

Still, some "gripes"...for the amount I paid, you'd think Audi would give a touchscreen. To use "graffiti" to enter text or via the music-spinner is a bit...dated. The telescopic steering wheel is manual. Most cars in this pricepoint is electronic. Not sure why they cheaped out there on that. There is NOT enough storage as a general comment. I mean, I've made it all work nicely but an extra compartment for where the elbow rest is would be nice.

To be honest, once you are used the the dial... you wont even use the touch screen. The new Idrive in my car is touch screen, i think i only used it once. The dial is actually much faster and safer, especially when the car is moving.

The only downside is it obviously takes longer to enter the address manually, but you should not be doing that while driving anyway, touchscreen or not.
Besides i dont know about Audi's voice recognition (I think it will be very similar to BMW), you can try it out. Mine works very very well 95%+ of the time, even with my accent. (address or point of interest or even just a name of the restaurant)

But, like all , I can't pronounce "r" sounds. So, if I mean "Fracker Street", it will try to take me to "Flackuh Street"...then, it'll be somewhere in the hood or something and I get shot.
