Looks lovely!!

Interior pics please! I have gone for black headlining and haven't seen it yet! Gives the car a more sporty feel I think.

Cheers guys, done about 60miles tonight, I find traffic in town is super smooth, motorway is just amazing how quiet it is, I really like this engine, so much better than the 2.0tdi. I was suprised how meaty the engine sounds aswell accelerating in second to third. The interior is just fantastic, its such a nice place to be. I've attached some pics of the interior.

Im so happy, cant stop smiling.

Thanks to everyone here for helping make the best decision ever, truely am thrilled so far.

Congratulations Robb!

How jealous am I - still planning to order this weekend but not looking forward to the long wait.Struggling on definite colour choice - quartz grey or black, but your pics may have swayed it for me - looks great!

I follow a black A5 through Rackheath area each morning but thats usually filthy so I'll be looking for a really shiny one on the A11 in the morning - if a stranger flashes you it may just be me. Cheers and enjoy

I have to say i was also torn between grey and black also, but i am so happy with the phantom black now i have the car, upclose its so nice, its allready very dusty though. I think i will be getting some cleaning gear and waxes very soon. really needs a good wax on it.

Have you heard back from any dealers on a date for a test drive of a tip 3.0tdi?

Congrats Robb! I did the same thing on color choice...initially thought gray/grey but the phantom black is beautiful.

Enjoy.

Robb - I know the dust problem well - I currently drive a black 5 series and it seems to be getting worse. The colour issue really is a big thing for me though as I absolutely love black but can often drive 1000 miles in a week so get depressed by Tuesday as all my hard work cleaning at the weekend gets ruined by then - hence my latest dilemma. No 3.0 Tdi Tip drives yet but did drive the A6 with a similar set up to check out the engine/gearbox combination, and also a 2.7 A5 to check out the car so now happy to order If I can convince myself of colour and options. Cheers

OOps - forgot to say - great pics! but stop rubbing it in!

I love the DRLs! I thought they were a bit chavy at first but the more A5s I see with them on, the more I like them:D
Also like the fact that they are a very clear white unlike the B8 A4s where they are distinctly yellow and look crap!

I too was torn between having black or Quartz but the Quartz won as my wife used to have a black Mini and it was just depressing to spend ages cleaning it for it to look dirty in five minutes!

Cheers guys, as you say it is going to be a mission to keep clean, but those 5mins after cleaning it are well worth it :D For me anyway.

Marmin: If i was doing lots of miles then i would probably have gone for the grey aswell as my old silver A4 just looked clean months after cleaning it. What ever you decide on though it will look awesome, i dont think you can go wrong with an A5 in any colour really. Let us know how you get on with your decision.
