Verified my S5 arrived in port yesterday & the dealer was invoiced for it! :D It arrived on the exact day that the system had set for an ETA (7/23). Apparently for VA, all S series and R8's arrive in Rhode Island where the A's are received at a different port. I'm thinking it will take about a week for the car to hit the dealer even though the dealer delivery ETA is set at ~8/4.

Anyway, I sold my current car yesterday (06 M45) for a price so low I almost cried. It only had ~16k miles on it and I got much less than half what I paid for it. Nobody wants big V8's (except me obviously.) So now I have no car! (Well, my wife has her own car...but I have to be careful with using that lest she think it's OK to use the new car when it arrives.) I'm commuting via motorcycle so hopefully the weather will hold out until the car shows up. Been waiting since January & we're getting close...I hope! :)

Congratulations Ian! I believe you've ordered from HBL? How was your experience with them and did you pay MSRP (if I may ask)? I'm planning to order one at the end of the year with delivery by late spring if I'm lucky (or maybe I'm just dreaming and it will be a 1 year waiting list by then!)

Hope to see you're shiny new S5 around ;)

Congrats Ian... Great news !!
I'm trying to sell my current ride too (2003 Acura CL-S).
I'm envious.

spddev- I would recommend HBL. Absolutely no issues. I paid MSRP & honestly didn't expect anything different. Before delivery, I asked for the exact 'out the door price' & that's exactly what I paid.
