Having recently moved to the good old US of A I had my heart set on an S5 and was absolutely gutted when I found out I had at least a 6 month wait to get one. But after a certain amount of perserverence and no small amount of harasment of the Audi dealers (both local and in other cities) I found one. It was slightly more specced than I required, like the adaptive headlights (roads in Houston tend to go in straight lines forever), it was either pay a few more K or do the wait. It became a no brainer. So here it is and pick up is tomorrow. Phantom black and shiny. Even got the dealer to throw in the Huber Optik tint. Yeeee Haaawwwww

I do love the Magma red, had it on ex Phantom TT and loved it, not an option on my car in UK. Silver is nice though.

Well picked it up and WOW, WOW farkin WOW. What a car. And dead sexy. Only the second day but loving it immensely. FInd myself turning the radio off just to listen the rumble of the engine. It's brilliant. Last night went to a watering hole and and parked next another S5, meteor grey. Got a photo on the phone.
The other one had folding mirrors. Not sure if thats an option, or previous model thing?

The electronic folding mirrors are no longer available on US spec 2009 models (although folks in the UK can still get that feature). 2008 US spec cars had that feature available, but no one seems to know why Audi removed it for 2009.

Glad to hear that the car has met (if not exceeded) your expectations. :)

Car looks awesome fubaha. Congrats. It looks like the Grey S5 you parked next to was trying to take up 2 spots and that white van squeezed next to him:eek: I don't park next to anyone if I can help it. Most of the time I park so far away from where i'm going I need to take a shuttlebus back.:D
