I lucked out on my S5 order. I went in to look at them at Elk Grove Audi near where i live and inquired about them after looking at Audi dealers in Southern California. They had 2 S5s on order that were sold orders with no buyers, the Phantom Black I'm getting and a Meteor Gray that is coming in supposedly mid may.

From my understanding they placed the orders for these vehicles late december from the order sheet that I looked at when I was deciding between the two.

Welcome - did you go with Lasher or Niello? or?
I went to Lasher, Niello can go kick rocks after trying to sell me a demo S5 with 4k miles for 65k then laughed at me when I said I would pay MSRP minus mileage. Granted my fiance offered them 53k for a car we didn't really want. Asked about ordering one then they said to me, "sure.. 5k over list"

Same. :) Ordered early Feb. No commission number yet or build date. I got decent deals from both (L&N), but chose the person I spent more time with on the whole process (@ Elk Grove).

Who are you working with over there? I'm working with Mike. Maybe after you get yours we can go park in random places and make people stare :D

Same again. Im going to be waiting a long time though, I have a feeling. You'll probably be ready to trade yours in on an RS5 by the time I get mine.

nicko - I think your car and mine may be on the same ship. My build week was 8, released for prod 2/6, factory inspected 2/27, port arrived 2/29. I haven't rec'd an update on ship load date but I'm guessing we may be "brothers."

Its my brother from another mother! My car would be the flakey version of yours with all that metallic in the paint. :D

I'm sure its on the same ship, you'll get yours first though because it hits the port down there first.

Ask your salesman to pull up the order details for you on his computer and show you the screen. I believe on thier dealer net they can pull up all orders and show you a page with all the details

I just email my salesman and he copies and pastes the screen info for me. Not sure if he's allowed or not... easy process. Demand it if your salesman doesn't want to do it for you.
