    Hey everyone names Kent,
    This is my first Audi coming out of 2 bmw's as far as foreign cars go.
    My Last BMW was a manual 335is and I miss it everyday, but it just wasn't practical in the region I live in.
    I wanted something to compare to the IS but in a cross over size. I came across someone on this forum saying how they came out of an IS and into a SQ5 and it got me hooked once I read more about them.
    Purchase this CPO'd SQ5 at Audi Queens after searching for months (no exaggeration) and I love the car. Their were quite a few hiccups with Audi Queens mostly all to do with the salesman I dealt with, but I wont get into that right now. The GM and Sales Manager were able to straighten everything out and I feel better about my purchase. This was the exact package car I was looking for just missing the carbon trim I wish it had, but have already sourced it :)
    Looking forward to this forum as I was very active on e90post and have already been planning out mods!

    Welcome aboard, and good for you! Talk about Quintessential Audi S...that color and trim combo is the magic formula. I hope you love yours as much as I do mine.

    Welcome, and as stated above it's a great looking ride. DGP w/BO looks so good, especially once the mods kick in.

    Congrats and welcome to the Audi fam. Awesome spec and good call on switching out the trim to carbon. Love my interior with it!

    That's a nice stance on the 335 and that wheel concavity is glorious. Plenty of suspension and wheel choices for the SQ, I'm sure the search has already begun.

    Looks like you had the super deep concave forgestar F14s on your Beamer. Hereís a pic of deep concave F14 20x9.5 et30 on 255/45s on the Q.

    Too bad...
    Here's a pic of BBS CH-R 20x10.5 +25 with 295/40's at, what I consider to be, the proper ride-height:

    I feel you, though. I went with 5-spoke wheels on the R8. It's all a matter of taste.

    Thanks! Some say it looks WRX-ish. To them, I say "No, you silly millennial, it looks Trans Am/Grand Prix-ish. Sheesh."

    I'll give you five bucks if you put a screaming chicken decal on the hood. I'll even ceramic coat it for you.
