Default New Q5 2014 tracking info

As the previous thread was appropriately closed, I thought I'll start a new one for those like me who are still waiting for their new Audi Q5s.

Thanks to the folks who replied to my query in the previous section. My dealer has not given me details yet but the ship with my Q5 is expected to reach Houston on 11/4. When I go to the Ro/Ro vw logistics page - it only has information about future ships. I expect that my ship is probably on the water somewhere. Can someone, who has been following their vehicles, tell me what ships are expected to dock in Houston on 11/4?

Thanks

May be Bangkok Highway. Thanks to Burgermeister for this link -http://info.poha.com/vtraffic/arrivals.html

According to this, Bangkok highway (last known port emden) is expected to dock in Houston on 11/4. Anyone else know more about this?

Thanks

Default Bangkok Highway

I have a week 38 schedule and it shows Bangkok Highway docking in Brunswick on the 30th and Houston on 11/4.

Thanks for the posting, Xylar5 - PWL's weekly planner is indeed one of the best tracking tools.
For those still scheduling their ED adventure and wondering about the verbiage below the spreadsheet: besides some business-to-business administrivia, it notes the requirement that vehicles must reach Emden (VW's/Audi's loading port) at least three days prior to ETD. Finally, they reiterate the known restriction on leaving personal effects in the vehicle lest fines are levied and acceptance for shipment is denied.

CORRECTION: Maybe not the best tool since some dates obviously do slip ...

Thanks Xylar for the pdf.

It looks like my baby is on this ship. When I try to track it, its not available, but the last know position is North Atlantic, north of Scotland on 10/20. So hopefully its almost across the Atlantic, and will start showing up in the logs over the next day or 2.

Hoping it can get up to Minnesota in 3 days from Houston.

I would agree, but it has been right for a couple of different boats hitting ports right about now. I just hate that the updated schedules leave out some of the ships in transit.

Mark P gave us a good post on how to track the ships out in the void.

Here is the "current" position of the Bangkok Highway:

Default Delivered!

Got a call around lunchtime on Friday and had to scramble to get everything lined up for financing and trade and everything. Hectic, but it's in my hands now.

That blue is a beautiful color! Any VCDS mods planned?

Nothing specific, honestly, at least at this point. Other than correcting the consumption value whenever I get a satisfactory amount of data on it, of course, and getting the gear display for D/S. I'll see what I think after driving it for a while, but I want to get a good feel for how things work stock and see what I feel like tweaking.

Everyone seems to love the Scuba/Chestnut, I've gotten a lot of compliments coming in from the local Audi group board, too. It's surprising to me since it's not an S-Line, some people think the blue isn't "luxury", it's not one of the usual colors everyone talks about, etc. But it's a nice combo, not too flashy but not boring either. And the black headliner is awesome.

Definitely am. Scuba seems like a popular order around here, so it's funny that there's pretty much never any dealer orders of them (though when I was picking mine up, there was a Scuba A4 in the showroom -- I assume it had to have been an order that was passed on).

Great pics idale. That is indeed a lovely color combination. I am personally a fan of beige but brown looks good. Are those fine grain ash brown inlays? Love those too... and have them ordered in my Q5.

Anyone has any feedback on Ventureshield vs Clearbra? Should installing this be a no-brainer? If yes, does anyone know of a good installer in the Minneapolis, MN area? How much does that cost?

Probably there is a forum for that - If someone can direct me to the correct forum - would appreciate it.

Thanks

Yep, that's the ash inlays. Best trim IMO, as it's not trying to compete for attention and goes great with the brown and black interior. Walnut's really glossy and the aluminum is pretty bright and I think would be distracting. But the ash complements the interior nicely without jumping out and screaming that it's there.

Awesome colour combination - Congrats!

I especially like the matte finish on the inlays.
Makes me wish that the CF trim were available in matte as well.
