RE: What did I leave out?

In case it is an important feature to you xxkazxx, be sure to ask whether the "electronically folding [outside] mirrors" is included in one of the various packages. I obviously did not ask enough times and didn't get that option - rediculous really, my S5 is loaded. . . .:(

My understanding is that those are not available on 2009 US spec A5/S5s.

xxxkazxx... you chose every option available in the US except laser cruise control, so no need to worry. There are TONS (I counted at least 13) of options available in other countries that are not available here, but we also get a lot of their options as standard and we don't have to pay as much, so I guess it works out in the end. So, if you are sure about the colors you chose and that you don't want laser cruise control, then there is nothing to worry about, except maybe MMI 3G, which may or may not be in your car depending on when Audi decides to start putting them in US spec A5s and S5s. I feel that the MMI 3G should have been released on the S5/A5, or at least on the A4 and all 2009 models, because, for the A4 especially, you are gonna have a few months of early production of a car (which already lowers resale) which are going to have the 2G MMI, and then after those few months, it will have the 3G MMI. If I went to Audi and bought a loaded A4, and 3 months later, I find out that Audi has already changed a major part of what I thought was a brand new vehicle, I would be mega pissed. Part of me wants to cancel my order and wait for the 3G MMI, but no one knows, in the US at least, for sure when Audi will put it in the A5/S5, and it could take a full year until the 2010 model, and then, that will put me one year closer to an S5 facelift... so I decided to stick with my car, especially since the only feature I really care about that is coming, apparently, to the US 3G MMI is traffic, and I have traffic on my iPhone, so I can look at it there if I am planning any trips that may have traffic on it.

As I said, you clicked off every option. The voice control you get is, unless Audi changes it, the same voice control everyone in the US gets who ordered MMI NAV.

I understand and respect your reasoning/choice, but personally, as someone near your age, I could not live with myself if I got an S5 auto, even though I live in one of the most congested areas in the US or the world (New York City), like you do. That however, is just my personal opinion, but I do think that the ability to drive a manual should be mandatory, or at least every man should know how to (and I am not saying you don't, once again just stating my opinion).

Sure, rent a beater and I will teach you :D

Seriously though, if you have a friend who wont mind letting you borrow a 6speed or if you can rent one, I'd be more than happy to teach you on it, just not on my car, lol.

what me and my friend did was we'd buy a car for like 200-300$ stickshift-and just beat it as much as we could until it died-and then destroy it completely lol-race around his property as much as we could(he owned a garbage/carting company so he had a huge lot)---lol-play bumper cars,throw rocks at each other, paintball wars(in cars)-hit stuff we'd find in the garbage-goodtimes-but thats how i learned to drive lol(all that at 12yrs old)----

but yea-i can drive stick-just not well enough that i trust myself with a $62k 6spd car lol
