    Here are some pics of mine, if the links work?

    Don't know if other owners have noticed, but goes much quicker once mileage went over 1500!

    Damn I love the S5. I hated it on the screen and the brochure, but then I saw one.

    I know what you mean! The R8 looks so much better in the flesh also.

    Not all colours look too great also, I managed to jump out of one into this cancellec order as I prefered colour etc...

    Looks great, nice colour choice, I pick up a Phantom Black/Magma S5 on Friday to replace my BMW 630, they do look better in the metal than in pics. Theres a good write up on the S5 in this weeks Auto Express, comes very close to beating the new M3.

    Nice combo also, enjoy!!!!

    I would be curious if you feel it is limited to start with? It was like a switch flicked once the miles went up, really strange!

    Lovely car by why does Audi have to cheapen it with the silly V8 badges on the wings? The do the same thing with the S6 and it just looks like an afterthought.

    It is indeed Quarty grey - I would not of thought of ordering this colour in my wildest dreams from the brochure.

    I ordered Meteor Grey, saw a LHD A5 in it and really wasn't impressed, so changed to Black. Then found this car in a dealers showroom and really liked it so managed to sell on the order of Black one and effectivley swapped cars!

    I must say, I love the colour and think it suits the car very well and would recommend to anyone ordering one. Black looks very nice too, but make sure you see a meteor Grey first as it looks very different in the flesh to the brochure - IMHO.

    3 of the 4 A5s/S5s in Leeds Audi were black when I popped in a couple of weeks ago, the other was the bright silver. The black seems to hide the lines which to me is a travesty on any coupe. The silver was OK but so many cars are that colour already. Quartz grey and Meteor grey were the two colours that looked most attractive in the marketing materials. Gotta say yours looks stunning on the photos.

    very nice indeed. I noticed it doesn't have aluminum pedals. Not a big issue but it puts me off abit for a S5.

    Otherwise everything looks very tidy, congrats!

    Picked up mine on Friday, no time to take proper pics yet, but will do next weekend if the weathers ok. Great car and great service from Reading Audi.

    First Audi after a string of BM's but so far I love it.

    Very nice mate!

    Mine is still putting a smile on my face every day

    One pointer, make sure the red light appears on the handbrake as mine doesn't always catch if your quick, and twice its rolled down the road

    Not true if you look at Mk5 Golf GTI residuals - should imagine the same of the S3

    Yeah baby !!! Seriously I had sleepless nights over the leather colour but you have to see it before you mock, it looks amazing.. not the kind of garish red you get in some cars. I'm Mr frickin conservative as a rule but I went with the advice of the Audi dealers on this one. Red/black and carbon atlas looks special...:p

    And S31zzo as for S5's in white....each to their own I guess, personally I think white looks great on smaller cars, just watch the new Fiat 500. Bigger cars though, Nah !! You'd lose the style lines on an S5. Ok if you live out in Saudi or California, but not here in the wet and muddy UK. But then thats just my opinion and I completely respect yours - even if you are wrong :hubbahubba: (I'm kidding !)

    Fantastic looking cars

    The side on black looks a bit Aston Martin to me - which is no bad thing.

    And the front grill in your rear view mirror definitely says "move over" :)

    Who's mocking, i love red leather in black cars! That's what i wanted in my S3 but had to settle for grey as it was a option in the 8L S3!

    Well done my friend, nice touch!

    Thanks. Can't take the credit for the choice, if the wife and the dealers hadn't been so persuasive I'd have gone for black or silver leather. Does look damn fine tho.

    I have another car coming already, don't keep cars long as try to minimize depreciation. Although my Autotrader ad ran out a week or so ago, I'm finding it difficult to readvertise - I love this car!
