I have been browsing this site for a few months now and have yet to hear of anyone who has recieved a red s5. This is the colour I ordered and it would be great to see some members pics as I have yet to see one in the flesh.

I originally ordered red, but then changed to sprint blue. I think the red is hot. I also think that walking out of the dealership with a red S5 is like walking out with 2 speeding tickets in the glove box. (That's why I switched.) Anyway, the first S5s on the East Coast -- including the one at the NY Auto show last spring and the one that was in the NY Corporate Audi Showroom on Park Ave at the same time -- were brilliant red over silver. I'm pretty sure that there were some photos posted somewhere on the site over the summer. Also, there was a red S5 in the first Motor Trend review, which you might be able to find online. Finally, go to youtube, there are a bunch of video reviews of the S5, almost all of which incude video clips of a red S5.

Ali, you can view some high quality pics of a red S5 here. I've also attached a few pics that I had run across a while back.

No, that's the problem. So hard to see these in person. I've only seen the Meteor over Magma in person thus far. Oh wait. I did see that Phantom Black S5 down my street last week...at night, unfortunately.

ICZ_15,

Far be it from me to tell you how to live your life/what or what not to fit to your car, but do be careful with that 'garage door opener'. The first successful conviction for using one as a jammer was in August this year - the guy got a £5000 fine, £1000 court costs and a 1 year driving ban. Would hate for this to happen to anyone from the A5_OC!

The details are here:

and about half way down the page.

Hi Scratch,

I have distributed this product in Ireland for about 5 Years along with Road Angel and visit the manufacture in Holland twice a year, i understand where you are coming from, however i am putting the device in my car for the purpose of turning on automatic lights at my home, now the device is legal to fit to my car.
The guy in question (who i have had a 2 hour tel conversation with) said to the police he was not aware he got it fitted to his Range Rover (not being aware he got a £300 device fitted to his vehicle??) and he had no automatic lights or automatic garage door at home. Therefor the only puropse the court would look at it was that he has it fitted for the purpose of Jaming laser guns. I have an Lti 20-20 Laser gun for the purpose of testing the Road Angels (the only one in private ownership in the U.K) and the ROAD ANGEL works well :)

Sounds like you're more clued up on this than me - I'm just a bit wary of the laser jammers though as the Police won't exactly take your side if you use it to avoid detection... Turning on lights or opening garage doors though seems a reasonable defence to me though.

Sounds like the guy who got prosecuted was a bit dumb really - I for one can't believe he paid £300 to the garage for something he didn't ask for, didn't want or else didn't notice that they'd charged him £300 for it! I would have queried that on any bill. Looks like the judge couldn't believe it either!:D

Don't suppose you're going to let on as to how you got hold of that laser gun or how much it was? eBay?

Scratch, you have a brand new car, yet you seem to be spending all your time in these forums! I think I would find every excuse to be out on the road. Unless, of course, it is snowing down in the South West!
