Depends on what spec you ordered. There are new options available to select but the car is much the same. Dipstick is different. SD card slots are now available. NAV DVD will be Aug 07 instead of August 06 now.

Your car will likely be an '09. As far as I'm aware, '08 A5/S5s are no longer being produced and only '09 cars are coming out of the factory.

What's the current status on your order? Have you checked with your dealer to find out when factory production starts? Your dealer should have informed you that you will be getting an '09 (and not an '08).

Also, when did you actually order your car?

Nothing. You're in good shape. FYI, Side Assist has become part of the Technology package for '09 US models.

Sorry to rain on the parade, but from other posts the 'auto' folding mirrors are no longer there for the '09 model versus the '08 model. I really like this feature, it's too bad Audi took this out.

In the UK, that's definietly still an option. You can get them standalone or with the Comfort Pack. Is that not the case in the US?
Nope... plus, we don't have an option called "Comfort Pack".

A number of the UK/Euro options are not present on the US models.

For once, Europe gets the upper hand. We are just used to it being the other way round all the time. ;)

I actually Think europe has the upper hand. I would much rather live there and will live there if Mccain get's elected as president. europe is way more laidback in my opinion:p And you guys get cars earlier since like 90% of good cars are made in europe.
