So far the dealers I have spoken to are telling me to wait until late April. As of today they don't have any material for the car yet.

I am located in the San Francisco area. Interested to see how the chips fall by regions of the world.

1st delievery in july, dont bother going down and expecting to leave with 1 same day, those are for people who preordered in march april. order now you'll get 1 sep/oct, depending on spec e.g. if you ask for it in pink (god i hope you dont) dont expect to get 1 til oct, if you get 1 with boring specs, i.e. no extras what-so-ever with boring paint like boring silver with boring leather then you'll get 1 very quick, and god i hope you dont again, it would be such a shame and an insult to audi if you do, the A5 deserves so much more.

blinky...i have a standard black on order - internal trim spiced up a bit you'll be pleased to hear - but mine is delayed till next week in waiting for the paint....like you say they wait until they have a whole "paint pot" worth of orders in a certain colour before they paint the thing...

I was going to get white - but everyone talked me out of it... jury still out till i see one.

My local dealership has one in white. It's nice, but I wouldn't want one myself. The new TT looks really good in white, especialy with the red leather, but the A5 just doesn't seem to carry it off quite as well. Plus I wouldn't want to clean it every day! Although black needs a fair amount of cleaning, it gets away with it so much better than white. I think you made a good choice, the A5 looks so mean in black.

Bugger! I have ordered mine from a Links Audi group member, but my car still hasn't started production yet. I think it was slated to start next week. I really hope I don't get hit with the same 5 week delay. If I do, I'll be taking the RS4 that's in the showroom.

Nooooo! Sad to hear that mate!

The last letter I had (letter 2 of 3) confirmed it would be completed on w/e 27th of august, for delivery on september 1st.

Hope it isn't delayed, would be an absolute gutter :eek:

I had a call from Audi today. They told me that my order would be delayed 3-5 weeks! Apparently there is a change being made to the manufacturing process. Whether this means that they found a fault, or they are changing their tooling I don't know, but I gather that my car won't be with me for a couple of months now at the earliest.

I've very, very tempted to take the nicely specked RS4 they have in the showroom.
