Ditto, picked my tail pipes up last week and took them with me! This is my first Audi as I have always had BMW. Last car was BMW 320cd M sport Individual. Audi interior makes BMW look so outdated, so no regrets.

:D totally agree about BMW interiors, a friend of mine just got a Z4 and i admit it is kind of cute but the interior just doesnt do it for me, he loves it though. Enjoy the car, how about some pics :)

Yes no problem, I will post some on. Hope next week flies as it seemed the nearer I got to collecting the car, the longer the wait seemed. Bonus was that I ordered the car beginning of March and was told late August, early September. Only had to wait 9 weeks so I class myself as very lucky. When did you order your's?

Wow that is quick! I thought mine was pretty quick, ordered last week of Feb, was told August.

Awesome look forward to then :)

Very nice indeed. Like the exhaust trims finishes the car off nicely. Surprising really that Audi do not include them as standard.

Query re tail pipes

Just a quick question re the tailpipes. I ordered these from Audi Leeds on Friday using the part # ABZY had posted elsewhere. I had told the parts guy that I wanted chrome but he said they were stainless steel, not chrome and there was no other option available to order for the A5. The part # he showed me on the system matched so can I just check that although your pipes are gloriously shiny they are actually stainless steel rather than chrome?

If I had a scanner I'd show you the product page the parts guy printed off for me, the description does say stainless steel aswell as the details. Pretty sure you have the right one.

Whilst there have been many splendid testaments to this beautiful car on this forum, this has to be the greatest. Anything that can get a Yorkshireman to declare, to the entire Internet, that he's happy . . .

Wow!

;)

shelltell,

Congratulations - nice car. You'll find A/S5's are still quite rare (and special around here :) . i commute from York to Bradford and i've only started seeing 1 or 2 others every couple of days recently.

Have fun. See you around.
