    Title says it all really, after what will be nearly 2 years away from Audi by the time it arrives in late Sept/Oct when I will take delivery of my new car.

    Usually hung out on the S3 thread and still do occasionally, but will need to find a new home now on A5 thread.

    Been leasing cars for the last few years and have been chasing the deals.

    66 plate S3 SB facelift in Ibis White
    68 plate BMW 225xe Msport Premium in Estoril Blue (the deal was too good not to!)

    70 plate A5 SB 35tdi Sline Stronic in Ibis White - on its way.

    Picked up a fantastic lease deal for the next 2 years, details over the the lease deals thread if you are interested.

    Will keep post updated and pictures when it arrives.

    Found these on Autotrader so will do for drooling over just know [​IMG]

    Stunning! I've the exact same car on PCH order from Audi - 35 TDI S-Line sportback in the optional glacier white metallic. It's to replace my current 2018 40 TFSI Sportback in solid Ibis White.

    I got mine on an Audi Loyalty PCH deal for £292 on a 3+23 on 6k miles. Metallic option thrown in. Considering my current A5 S-Line is £305, this refreshed A5 represents circa £4k of once optional kit as standard and the S alloys make it to the S-Line as standard kit!

    Think we have chatted before over on PH leasing deals page!
    This is one of the RGW deals that has been filling the last few pages on that forum, I was able to snap up a good deal quick.

    £299 on 3+23 10k miles

    When I read your post I instantly saw this picture in my head and thought it can't be 2 years since he got that, must be someone else!!! Then went to find it lol...I'm shocked at how fast that has gone :blink: Scary fast!

    Haha yeah time flies!

    But it was just an 18month lease Dec18-Jun20 and it spent the last 3 months parked in the drive. Hadn’t even done 10k miles when it went back in perfect condition bar a couple of stone chips.

    So it will be nearly 2 yrs when the replacement arrives.

    A5 is certainly different to the S3 but then so was the 225xe lol. Sure I posted in the past that I would not have another diesel, but this price was to good not to!

    Might as well drop an old S3 pic in for good measure. [​IMG]

    Good stuff, did think about adding it too. Had one in my S3 so thought doing without it would at least make the car feel a wee bit different other than just power lol

    Really nice Barry! Just catching up on this thread. Always liked the ‘5s. Had a coupe then an S5 in Ibis White. Liked that colour. Looking forward to hearing and seeing more nearer the time

    Like Daytona, was previously looking at a new A3 in that colour until this deal came along. Think the A5 looks good in white so wasn’t prepared to pay for metallic lol.
    Hopefully it’s quicker, fingers crossed as I am currently carless!

    It does look awesome in white, but Audi Daytona grey is another level on any of their range. Ha I still have my A250 till then :tongueout:

    Just ordered mine, 35 TDI s line. Daytona grey, flat bottom steering wheel. £302 @ 6+35 10k miles. I was paying the same for my 2017 A5 coupe petrol and Manual in the standard solid black so very good deal I think. Anyone know how long roughly once ordered? Can’t remember what the last one took. Thanks mike

    Thats not too bad then, my current A5 runs until November anyway. Through a company called Motorlet that we have our current car through. They said Audi are running a loyalty discount which seems right as I couldn’t find it anywhere else for that cheap or any where near to be honest.

    Hoping mine starts long before then!
    I’m sure when I ordered the my S3, the original date on the portal jumped forward a few weeks when it actually did start.

    When did u place the order and was it direct with a dealer or a lease broker?

    Ordered via lease broker just mid last week. I’m sure it will jump forward but who knows how much backlog is there due to covid issues.

    Was that with RGW too? Just not had my order number yet too allow me to track it. Due an update from them today, so will see if it’s supplied then.

    In no rush to get mine really, home working not going to be over anytime soon and not got any car payments at the moment. But there has been a few times in the last 6 weeks when I have missed not having a car on the drive, when the wife has been away with hers.

    Nah, I went through contractcars. Strange, they gave me the build ID same day I placed the order.
