Many thanks for this reply.
Is it a pure 'guess' or something based on sources you cannot name here ?
Many cars, including cheaper ones, are now available with similar lane assist systems.
I don't want to lower my resale value in 3-5 years because my Q5 has this feature missing.
I am not sure I want to wait for an hypothetical october PCN release in the UK (it's available in all other EU countries right now) and might therefore switch to another manufacturer.
Any perspective ?
Hi again and thanks once more.
I wonder is Audi can sustain this lack much longer.
The new BMW X3 is out, with all options available, including 3.0 engines.
In my opinion this will force them to propose similar engines and maybe link the PCN to this. This is a pure guess.
Well, I was in touch with the dealer and you are right, he's very good at saying 'I don't know'.
But with the current delivery leadtimes, I need to order latest in Septembre to get it in S1 2018.
But without PCN, I will go to BMW, even if apparently Q5 has features that speaks more to me : better virtual cockpit, sliding rear bench, lower CO2, comfort key with contact on rear doors.
i trust you. it's just a question of beeing 'up to date' in 3-5 years upon selling it. I assume that this will be a plus over another car without it
It's a pure guess as 'usually' I've seen October brochure and spec updates from Audi...
That's what definitely happened with the Q7 LY.
The only thing I'm not sure about is what's happening to Uk Q5s....MY18 across the audi range normally kicks in for week22 - initially this was same as quoted for Q5 but they then delayed to week 28.
As I understand it Lane Assist is actually codable as long as I think ACC is fitted (need to check that).
Traffic Jam however isn't from what I know.
Wouldn't worry about resale values too much as don't forget there'll be a tonne of cars out there even when Tour Pack is an option without it. Like Tech Pack and Virtual cockpit.
Let me know if I am wrong, but ACC is and/or includes traffic jam. This feature is available on new Q5 without problem at all, even on line.
Are you saying that with ACC fitted, the dealer can add PCN (Driver assistance Tour, wrongly named here Lane assist) ?
If that's the case, I need to get back to him. He said he can code only what is on the website.
Maybe an opening there...
A4/Q7 no problem. Driver assist Tour is codable directly on line.
It is not on new Q5 and my dealer cannot code it either.
So back to original question, when will it be available...
This is a very kind notice to ask to focus on the original request.
No need to to explain what needs to be coded first on other models and whatsoever...
The objective is to order a Q5 with Driver Assistance Tour (PCN).
This feature is not available yet on Q5 on line.
The question is simple : when is this going to be available in the UK.
So far, I have only 'guesses'
