Just wondering if there's any meet out here. Also curious about experience with modding and detailing. Anyone you've worked with?
That's awesome! I actually placed the order in September the car should be getting built in the first week of Feb. I asked them to push it back as much as possible as I want the car to arrive in Spring as opposed to the nasty winter.Oh that is awesome! I'm glad there'll be a minor tweak in difference. Build is supposed to be lined up for week 8. Not had the date confirmed yet. Just cleared the, congrats on the purchase hurdle.
Southgate Audi? They mentioned they had an RS5 for a while, but was sold so I didn't get a chance at it. However, I've watched hours and hours of video, and the chaps here that own one are clear. I take it the test drive blew you away then?
I posted in the Canada forum about meeting other 5 owners in Edmonton. Would be great to meet up with you and whoever else is around. Good to exchange notes and experiences around the local shops that do a good job.
And there I was thinking I'd have a rarity in Edmonton. Now there'll be two of us makin some NOISE!
Great tip on audizine. Will check that out.Hey! If you want to get to know more people locally I would check audizine.com as its userbase is more North American as opposed to a5oc.com (mostly UK i think?). I like this forum however because they have a dedicated RS5 forum.
I don't know about detailing and mods but I know that for tint and getting the car 3M wrapped I would go to European auto tinting in Edmonton.

Yup, at Southgate Audi. Yeah they had a Suzuka grey that I got to test drive. I actually own a B8 S4 right now so I wasn't expecting the RS5 to blow me away due to its lower torque numbers but I was really impressed. The car's totally a beast and can't even be compared to the S4. Who helped you at Southgate?
Haha you'll still have a rarity. As far as I'm told, they only had 7 RS5s come in for MY13 and 8 for MY14. And of the MY14 cars mine was the only Sepang blue before you ordered Yeah, we should definitely get together once the cars come in and have a photoshoot or something. Would be really cool!
That sounds awesome. I was actually looking to ship an RS5 from Vancouver that had the Beaufort trim and it looked very unique indeed in the pictures. I'm just a really big sucker for carbon fiber so I definitely had no second thoughts about getting carbon fiber trim on the car that I ordered.Great tip on audizine. Will check that out.
Gord helped me. He was the one who suggested Beaufort actually, and when he showed me the sample I was sold. An extra 1k but class and unique.
Deal on the get together.
I'm contemplating auto obsessed for detailing. I liked autobahn performance for their responses on tuning, and Eurasia as well. Got a good quote on remote starter install, and he will install my dashcam at the same time.
Looking forward to your pics on arrival
Not sure why you want to clear component protection. Is it necessary in order to upgrade the MMI?Wanted to hijack this thread for a quick question. Any of you folks had an issue with Southgate Audi in Edmonton refusing to clear component protection on a car? I am upgrading my MMI but the service rep said they are not allowed to clear protection for security reasons...

The only information I could find on this topic was here: Audi-Resource - Component Protection
Not sure who you talk to at Southgate Audi but Terry has always been a pleasure to deal with.
i was going to buy from Royal Oak Audi after a sour experience from Southgate Audi. Talked a young asian guy over the phone, he was really nice and knew his stuff.Just ordered a '14 S5 - I'm up in Airdrie
Dealing with Royal Oak Audi in Calgary. Been great so far!
nice! welcome to the clubHey guys, I'm also in Edmonton. Have a 2012 S5 with the tiptronic and V8.
Also have had mixed results with South-gate Audi, as I bought the car private and they've been 'ok' to deal with so far.
I did just get the AWE touring exhaust installed ... mother of god
How did that work out? Has it been worked out?Has anybody in Calgary/Edmonton had the GIAC XPlus (Stage 1) reflash done? Having some big issues here -
