Anyone else thinking of buying one of these?

Hi,
I’m looking at the Q4 e-tron in S-line, but not many about locally, although there are a few pre built unregistered car at dealers a few hundred miles away. Not sure if Geyser Blue or Typhoon Grey as after a few black Audis I need a change.

Hi,
After more reading about the Q4, I’ve ordered a 35 S-line that’s at the docks waiting to be transported to the U.K. and amazingly had the spec I wanted. Should be with the dealer late November all going well.

Keep us posted once you got it. Congratulations on this purchase.

Hi,

I collected the car today and had a 120 mile journey back home. All went well, and had 90 miles left in the tank, so to speak. The car is amazing to drive and I’m sure it will take a few weeks to adapt to an electric car. Glad I went for Narvarra blue as it looks good and suits the car.

Personally, I think the Q4 is hideous like the rest of the Q range but each to their own. If you enjoy the car, that's what matters.

The long wait is finally over, congratulations on your new ride. Keep us posted on your future plan for this car.

Hi,

After a few weeks of driving the car, so far so good, and really pleased even though it’s taken a little while to get used to it. Regen braking is a new experience, and I’ve had a few occasions where I’ve slowed far too early so find myself a few hundred yards away from the junction! one bonus it regen does add a few miles, so that add a few miles to the range on most journeys. The car is very comfortable, rides well on 20” wheels and as expected, very quiet on most road surfaces. Range anxiety is slowly disappearing, and over the last few days I’ve stopped looking at the ‘miles left’ on the dashboard. I was told all drivers of electric cars do this for a few weeks. Space inside the car is great, particularly for those in the rear who have a lot of leg room and no transmission tunnel to worry about. I have the Sonos sound system option that’s amazing and the quality is very good. The tech is ok, especially the touch screen, but as ever, the myAudi app can be a bit flakey, although there are meant to be some updates to improve the functionality in December. I plan to retrofit the raised floor in the boot as that will hide the charging cables that at present are scattered across the boot. The cost of parts is around £260 and I will follow the instructions posted by a Q4 owner on another Audi forum.

In summary, a great car and I’ll update the forum on how things are going.

Hi Sandra,

Would be great if you can look at modifying the Q4 forum

Hi Sandra,

I hope you are well.

Can we possibly have a sub-forum for both types of the Q4 as I’ve recently purchased the standard version so wanted to post a short review about my car, as well as mention a retro-fit I have planned.

Thanks

Graham

Hi,

I ordered the parts from my local dealer, who sent me an email saying the parts are on back order, so may be a wait! Something a lot of people are used to after waiting months for their Q4.

The part numbers are below, and I asked the dealer to confirm the part numbers are correct for my car before they were ordered. Didn’t want to be charged for a special order and find they were incorrect, so best to get confirmation.

Floor panel: 89A861529 8P9 £183.17 + vat currently back ordered
Left side plastic support: 89A863423 £16.28 + vat also B/O
Right side plastic support: 89A863424 £16.28 + vat also B/O
Bolt n10751101 £0.71 +vat each X6 required stk available at V

The dealer offered to fit these for around £115, but after seeing a forum post on fitting the floor it doesn’t look too difficult to do myself, and it will save money. Also, I’m not convinced the dealer will drill holes in the floor if they are missing, or cut the plastic legs off the side panels!


As soon as the parts arrive, I’ll update the forum.

I had a good look over one back in the summer while I was waiting to collect my car from being serviced. I was really impressed with the interior - very chunky and aggressive dash with screens angled towards the driver and bags of interior space. I also like the exterior styling, although it doesn’t depart far from the usual Audi lines.

I won’t be buying one however. I’d be spending around £50K to get the model and spec I’d like and I’m not yet convinced about the range or the avaiLability of charging facilities, whatever reassurances people on here give.. Apart from those cons I’ve had to give up driving due to eyesight problems so my interest in cars now is purely theoretical. I shall still follow the progress of EVs however as they are unquestionably the future of motoring and the industry is adapting fast.
