How are you guys getting your build dates and port dates and all that info? I asked my dealer to provide a build date and this is what he emailed me back . . . .

"I spoke with my Manager and he tells me that Audi North America ACCEPTED our ORDER for your new S5 on the 18th of August...The S5 has a TENTATIVE ARRIVAL (to our dealership for immediate delivery) of DECEMBER...That's great news!..it looks as though the Automatic production cars are going to be here ahead of the Manual models ordered prior to your order.

Let me know if you have any questions or considerations..I will be in touch as we near the delivery date"


Sounds like good news but still not a solid production date or port date or anything. . . . .

thanks for the reply fdot, but I'm not asking what your dates are.

Im asking how you obtained them. My dealer has not given me any production dates or port dates and all that . . . . .

if you go to forums.audiworld.com/a5 (great forum BTW), there are a bunch of guys who work at Audi who look up commission numbers when they have some time. It's helpful to corroborate the information coming from the dealer, but sometimes they can't give you exact dates.

From my experience of reading these message boards for a while, your dates sound about right. I ordered in May, and I am expecting it in early November.

Excellent, thanks. I'll head over there when I get home and try my luck. If they can help, great. If they can't, no worries.
