    Accidentally tagged you in my post mate, was meaning to just reply to your message. Still trying to get the hang of using the forum & all the message stuff, apologies.

    Thanks for the tip regarding getting the build sheet, i'll make sure i pick that up before i leave. Also, i don't have a Nav disc as its the HDD one, MMI 3G High with the Joystick on the dial & bluetooth connectivity.

    Hi Andy,

    I was looking on the Audi Approved Used website and not all Audi dealer cars go on Autotrader.
    The nicest cars usually come up on Audi Approved used as the dealers tend to keep good ex-lease trade-ins for themselves.
    Having had an A8 (2003, but 54 reg) I was looking for another "cruiser" rather than a sporty car rather that would strain at the leash. As a self-employed person, it's nothing for me to drive 200 miles to work - although I obviously don't commute if it's that far away.
    By chance, I came across an 2.5 year old, 12,000 mile, A5 SE quattro (soft suspension) that someone had specced up just like an A8 with the options I would have chosen myself. I thought the price fair compared to a new one.

    Most importantly, my wife and I both enjoy driving the A5 more than the A8 because it is lighter and easier to manage through corners.

    Hope this help. There is also a beautiful Sepang Blue car at just under 20k on the Audi website.
