I saw some interest in this, so I thought I would post it here.

I believe the car is at the dealer as we speak, available for delivery. This is NOT a demo car, but a brand new one just off the boat.

Meteor Grey
Magma Red with CF
Nav
Tech
B&O
Side Assist

58,XXX MSRP

If you are interested, call Mark Ciraldo at New Country Audi (203) 661-1800. Tell him Ryan M. told you about the car.

Good luck!

I have not seen a car with Side Assist available yet in the US. So this would mean it is a new car and not a demo that has come up for sale. All the demo's were Meteor w/ Magma and the rest of the list. However not Side Assist.

This is not a demo car, they already have a buyer for their demo car... it has 0/delivery miles. Someone ordered the car and then backed out at the last second and that is why they have the car on their hands.

this is torture - i stopped by the dealer today for unrelated Q7 stuff and looked at their mothballed meteor/magma/carbon demo, and we checked the queue for orders (i'm 9th, contrary to what i'd been told before about being 5th - there are 18 orders there now) and i tried unsuccessfully to will my order to the top and for a VIN.. i really should wait until mine comes in, i'll be able to save that much more for it..

nice man.... that's awesome :)

basically a LED (integrated in the side mirrors) that blinks when you try to make a lane change when there's a car in your blindspot

from the S5 Configurator:
Monitors vehicles "blind spot" via built-in radar sensors and warns by means of directional LED's built into exterior rearview mirrors

No problem, I hope you enjoy it! BTW, can you PM me your first name so I can ask him if my friend XXXXX bought the car, and then it may score me some points with him for finding someone to buy his car.

Thanks

Got the PM... thanks! I will call him tomorrow. Mark is a great guy (I have an S5 on order from him, as I said, and my dad has an R8 on order from him as well), I am sure he will give you great service!

Anyways, when are you going to pick up the car? And when you do, make sure you take lots of pics! Also, a review of the Side Assist would be helpful as well, I would like to know how well it works.

Well, Mark thinks the car doesn't have Side Assist, So I will have to have a look when I pick it up on the 29th. Its not really essential for me but if it is actually there ill let you know.
