Hey, about to step up and purchase an A5 and came across this site when looking for info, so hello :)

Im about to get a brand spanking new A5 (well i say new its "held in port" in the UK currently). As im switching from my current A3 to the new one i cant really wait the 4+ month odd build period (use the car for work) so the dealers found me one in port.

Its got essentially everything i want on it, base model being a 3.0 TDI Sport Quattro with nice 19" alloys, bluetooth, sat nav, mmi, b&o etc. The only thing it hasnt got is the auto dimming mirrors - any great loss here? Had them on the A3 and thought they were fab, can you get these added on after? Also noticed that the xenons and DRLs are now an option - thought they were standard (dealer told me that all A5s come with them...)

I guess as a general question, how difficult is it to change bits on the A5 once you get it?

Welcome!!

Yours will have xenons and drls. Its only a recent change to the specification and as yours will have been built a couple of weeks ago you shoud be ok.

I am interested in the answer to this. My car was pre order car at the Audi garage and luckily I liked the options on it.

But I did want sat nav and this should be fitted as a retro fit when the part turns up.

Also fitted the boot bag hooks, parts cost around £11 from Audi, and easy diy fit (Thanks to this forum for that hint). And I got a cargo net from ebay for about £8. Great car and to nice to let stuff in the boot roll about banging into things.

It would be nice to know if anybody knows what can be fitted after.
