    My S5 Sportback finally arrived....well sort of.

    Back in Feruary of this year I ordered a Premium Plus S5 Sportback with an Audi Exclusive color in Sepang Blue. I called the dealership every month asking the status and every time they told me a different answer. One person said the expected build date would be June and another person said July. To sum it up the car wouldn't show up at the dealer until maybe September-October at the latest. I was bummed would be and understatement because they (audi reps) told me 6 months.

    Then last week I called my Audi sales rep and he said we have a car similar to your ordered specs but it's in Ara Blue in the Prestige package with ventilated seats. I remembered back in February when I ordered my car I was torn between Sepang and the Ara but leaning towards Sepang for the darker look. When the rep showed the car online I was almost immediately hooked but balked at the price. It was 4000 dollars more than what I ordered. The MSRP on the car was almost 72,000. I told him to come down to my original ordered price of 64,000. He got back to me the next day and said we would meet at 65,000; long story short I got the car that next day and couldn't be more happy.

    I"m still learning the MMI and the tech but I think I'll get used to it over time. There is so much technology in this car it blow my mind. The heads up display looks like something from a Jet fighter. I'm coming from an original owner of a 2001 Acura CL type S which I got straight from college almost 18 yrs ago.

    Congrats, very nice! How are the ventilated seats? Is there a noticeable difference in the quality of the Milano leather vs. the Nappa?
