    2019 RS5 Coupe & Sportback Build Sheet is up

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I just noticed today that the "build" option is now available for the 2019 RS5 models. For some reason the Sportback build page doesn't work quite right as the "Continue" button at the bottom of the page opens a new broken web page, but you can click through the links at the top of the page just fine.

    Coupe: https://www.audiusa.com/models/audi-...019/build.html

    Sportback: https://www.audiusa.com/models/audi-...019/build.html

    Got mine all spec'd out:













    Future - 2019 RS5 SB - Navarra Blue, Alu Optic Carbon, Dynamic package, Driver assistance, B&O, 5-arm-peak wheels.
    2013 RS5 - Sepang Blue, Alu-Optic, Black Alcantara, Nav, Sports Exhaust
    2012 Q5 - Ice Silver 2.0T, Premium+, Nav
    2012 S4 - Monsoon Gray, Prestige package, S-Tronic, Sports Diff
    2007 RS4 - Mugello Blue
    2000 S4 - Santorin Blue

    Does the carbon fiber kit not come with black window trim?

    It does come with black window trim, a black grille surround, and black rear diffuser trim but for some reason the configurator is not adjusting for that.

    I had originally ordered the Black Optic package but decided the 2 tone 5-arm peak aluminum wheels didn't look quite right to me with all the other blacked out parts, so I switched back to alu-optic. I think the 2018 5-arm peak wheels were black & aluminum rather than grey/titanium & aluminum which would have been better. Either way, black or darker wheels with all the other blacked out parts would have looked better overall I think.

    That makes sense. The build looks great - thatís what I love about the options we are given, we can all build to our preference. For example, I believe Iím the only person on here that likes the machined trapezoid wheels :)

    is it just me or did the base MSRP go from $69.9k for 2018 to $74.2k for 2019? Did some options become standard (and if so which ones) or what is the reason for the increase?

    Nav + Tech packages are standard now. Pretty sure something else is too.

    Seems like none of the images do the car justice IMO. They have no life to them. The videos are a bit better but nothing like seeing in person.

    I think it probably all depends on whether you like green or not. Personally, I do not like Sonoma Green from the photos & videos I have seen and do not expect to like it any better when I finally see it in person, but you never know... I had a loaner SQ5 in Azores (?) Green the other day and actually really liked it, but it is like a British Racing Green (metallic dark green), rather than Kermit the Frog! The second photo of Sonoma Green below looks way better than the first one...

    Pretty dark out of the sun... vibrant and yellow flecked in the sun. I havenít seen the car in person, but the dealer got me a paint sample in the summer. Inside / outside differences are amazing.
