Nice!

Don’t forget to have the dealer install Sport+ mode, and only use that.

I love my A4. No, it’s not an S but it can still get me into plenty of trouble and it has a heated steering wheel for winter . Hope you love yours too.

Yeah, definitely looking forward to the heated steering wheel esp. now that we've plunged into the deep freeze up here.

Sorry, can you please elaborate on this Sport+ mode...? I know the car has a "Sport" mode but is there something else past that...? And how much is that to install...?

Only Saintor can have this special option, sorry. It was available on all cars delivered before yours.

It was in this thread. He reappeared and struck, like lightning...and all that's left is a small pile of brownish ashes nearby. But, what matters is that I now have the S5 again before Saintor.

So exciting to get a new car especially when you have to wait so long! Congrats Yummy! I am personally kind of over Audi's styling these days but they are still incredible cars (and you definitely got the right color)! I just wish I could afford something even half as nice as that thing...

Saintor posted some pics of a charcoal S5 on this page. Either he deleted the pics or my VPN isn't playing nice. We'll never know if they were actually pics of his S5. If only he weren't banned.

By the way I think Ibis White looks great, but the only color that looks better on the S5 is Daytona Gray Pearl.

Thx for looking out for me!

So much comedy gold with him buying a car he trashed anytime someone praised it and the same as Yummyís on top of it.

So true, he bashed Audi's every chance he got.. Back in 2017 when I posted pics of my wife's new Q7, he posted under a different user name to talk about what an overpriced piece of junk it and Audi's in general were.. And mind you, this was his opinion because of issues he had with (I believe it was a 5000S) 20 year ago... So he goes out and buys one!!! What a hypocrite, and some other choice words I'll keep to myself..

I believe he also hates current VW because of a shitty rabbit he had in 1983.

And he was going to buy a new 3 series.

What a tool.

Yup to both!

And now that he traded his Acura for an Audi, all Acuras are now trash, and Audi > Bugatti now.

I was looking around for him on AudiWorld but haven't come across him yet.. Then again if he just got the S5 he's still in the honeymoon stage so I doubt he's going to be his usual condescending, obnoxious, know it all self... But in time I'm sure his true colors will come out...

Audizine is indisputably, objectively, and subjectively better than AcuraZine now, based on the sole fact that they now have a Saintor and we have 0 of them.

Looking good, especially with those shipping blocks. Maybe you should tell them to leave them in there, so you can drive in deeper snow

White/Red, that is how we do it

Have you purchased your Carbon trunk spoiler yet?

I like the S5 Sportback so much, i just went to search again to see how much people are leasing these.... Even tho i had done that at least 3 times already

Similar MSRP, Similar discount yet the payment is about 200 a month more than a 440iGC, that is M3 $$
... come on Audi... throw me a bone here...

Maybe my maff is gone by Friday but how is a similar MSRP and discount equate to $200 more? Where is that coming from?
