    Picked up my factory order SQ5 today 5.5 months after ordering. Was very pleased with the carbon inlays and the general interior quality. Also the stock 20 inch rims with air suspension delivers a magic carpet ride in comfort mode which is exactly what I was looking for.

    I'm having a bit of Wifi setup trouble with the Audi UTR dashcams and I have not been able to fully set up the myAudi remote services, both might necessitate a trip back to the dealer.

    Overall though I'm happy and looking forward to the car being detailed and ceramic protected at the weekend. Some pickup pictures below, I'll post more when it's been detailed.

    Hey @q5man it’s only been a day and I won’t get any time in the car now till Saturday :( but initial impressions are positive.

    My detailer has options of Siramik Glasscoat APT or Gyeon Quartz Mohs Plus. Will go with what he recommends based on my distinct laziness when it comes to car care!

    Very nice, I’d go with the Gyeon, has very good reviews and my detailer rates it

    You have lots of kit to configure/play with. I get your comment about the car care laziness, have mine belatedly booked in for correction, detail and ceramic on 14/06. Mythos Black (wife’s only stipulation) is a nightmare for showing everything. Personally I would have chosen your colour..Daytona

    Funny my wife was saying she wished we had gone for Moonlight Blue now she’s seen Daytona. I told her the car was looking extremely flat as it’s only had the travel wrapping removed and been jet washed down.

    How much correction do you think your car will need before the coating? If you don’t mind me asking, what have you been quoted?

    Usually a quick stage 1 pass machine polish is sufficient to correct unless there’s any damage inflict my the dealers prep.

    My gen1 Q5 I had was moonlight blue, a lovely colour but don’t think you can get it anymore. Daytona will look good when detailed and coated

    Moonlight Blue is still a S/Q5 option. The one I really liked the look of was Utopia Blue, but it’s the one colour you can’t get the SQ5 in :(

    SQ5 is with my detailer getting Siramik Glasscoat, 2 layers; SC-HR (Heat Resistant) base with SC-Ultima layer on top and then a 3rd layer called Diamas Professionali. The Diamas is marketed as containing diamond like properties, we’ll see how it turns out when I get the car in a couple of days!

    I was keen on Gyeon, which was more expensive. However my detailer reckoned the finish and longevity on the Siramik is better...

    Just two tech niggles with getting Audi Connect setup (remote services not working yet) and an issue with messing up the WiFi for the dash cams (isn't stopping them from recording and I can get footage off the SD card without WiFi working). Might have to pop into the dealer to get them both sorted.

    Otherwise the driving experience has been great, am running it in properly so 80 out of 500 miles done. 500 to 1000 I'll start having a bit more fun ;)

    I thought is might annoy me and I do miss the 4 chrome pipes in other S Cars, but I’m actually not too unhappy. My detailer said it would be much easier to keep clean! I also think the down firing actual exhaust pipes have a very distinctive sound that is different from the S4 and S5.

    that is a good point, and also makes washing the "rear end" easier, at least that is what I tell myself. My wife is about to get a Mini Cooper JCW, so will no doubt need to stock up on autosol

    Did my first significant runs in the SQ5 over the last two days. 250 miles averaging 30mpg, average speed around 40mph. I'm keeping the car under 2.5k rpm and avoiding kick-downs. I'm taking it so easy that my wife is telling me to accelerate more quickly Am up to just under 400 miles and so well into running the car in. Can't wait to tick off the next 600 miles before I can start exploiting the acceleration potential a bit more! Question, is normal operating temperature for a SQ5 around 92C? Once run in, the suggestion is to have the car at operating temperature before giving it full beans.

    The car is a really comfortable motorway cruiser with air suspension in Comfort mode. I had one very hairy moment when the person in front of me in the outside (4th) lane of the M25 (clockwise around junction 21) decided to do a full emergency stop from 70 to stationary. I braked before the pre-sense kicked it and deployed full anchors stopping about 5 metres short of the car in front. I'm not sure how close the car behind me got, but the stopping power of the SQ5 is stunning. There was a tiny bit if ABS judder just before full stop and the car was fully under control.

    The car tech continues to impress. Traffic jam assist has kicked in a few times in slow moving motorway traffic. Pretty assured and removed a lot of traffic stress. Virtual Cockpit, 360 camera and Carplay continue to be revelations in usefulness. I've used pretty much all the options that I added to the car and so I'm still happy with my choices.

    I'm coming up with reasons to drive places over the next 2-3 weeks to complete running in!

    Good to hear all is well with the car! Have you managed to sort your UTR issues yet - thinking of fitting mine myself when the cars getting the headliner done.

    Hey @CC-SQ5,

    My UTR WiFi is still not working. Audi had the car for two days and couldn’t reset the WiFi back to factory either. I told them I wanted the camera unit swapped and they wanted more time to consult somebody. I also said I wouldn’t be leaving them the car again, they can take the camera and work out how to reset it if they want to try again. Pity as the actual camera is working well, just the WiFi connection from the app is not functioning.

    Am not dwelling on this one minor negative, as the car overall has been really good so far.

    That's an actual nightmare you would think they would just swap it out straight away. I would check your rights as you may be able to demand as the product isn't fit for purpose and is probably deemed as faulty so naturally you would return for a replacement.

    I've been patient, given them some time. Will turn up the heat this week.

    Have also ordered Q5 branded boot liner and front and rear rubber matts for £155, not bad quote as I was going to pay upward of £80 for just the original boot liner. I'm not a snob, so the lack of SQ5 branding won't bother me :p

    I'm still in awe of the Audi'ness... I'd forgotten what you get when you pay more than £40k for a car. No disrespect to my GLA, but it was made to a sub £37k budget, even the GLC 320 CDI I tried was made to a higher standard than my GLA was but not as good as the Q5. God willing all the miles are do in it are safe and stress free!

    I got mine thrown in with car (boot liner and rubber matts - in addition to carpet mats).

    Also finally got my roof bar bag yesterday, told them I was happy to pay for this, as been a few months since I got the car. Sales Manager had it dropped off at work...nice touch :thumbs up:

    Have often tried Merc when changing over cars, but never felt they were as solid, and not a fan of the interior, which is where all your time is spent. Audi's are so say not as involving a drive as BMW etc, but great place to be.

    Nice bonus thrown in the rubber mats and load liner. My roof bars came with their bag. My bonus from the dealer was some Audi branded cleaning products and a microfibre in an Audi pouch/bag.

    Too busy at work, have not progressed past 400 miles yet. I need a plan to go somewhere at the weekend to get over the 600...
