Default Q5 2015 order?

I want the following:
Ibis white with sport package
S line plus (black optic package with titanium "peelers")
Side assist

No one in Florida has this combo, so the two orlando dealers tell me that I need to order.

I've seen several 2015 guides, but when I asked the dealers, they say everything is the same.

This is frustrating..if I order now, what am I ordering!?!

Are these dealers blowing smoke or are they really uninformed?

I'm afraid the S Line is no longer available in 2015.

The best for you is to contact the AoA, for real information

Right now......(keyword is now)... S Line doesn't look like it is available for 2015s, but it could become available a little while later in production since they are apparently producing higher yielding packages at the moment....Speak with your dealer and see what information they have from Audi ....they may be able to source that for you in a 2014 model and save you some money....

Also try a few other dealers around if one particular dealer can't get what you want.... One Dealer quoted me 3-4 months, since I would have to order, but another dealer found one out of state and got it to me within a week.....some work harder than others....

black optic package is available on the 3.0T premium plus...

side assist is standard on the prestige and only part of the technology package , which I don't want

I don't understand why the two dealers I talked to don't have the new order guides.

they had an accessory catalog which shows the new titanium v spoke wheels and it also says "available in high gloss black package"

to be perfectly honest, this whole experience just seems so unorganized and it's embarrassing for such a "premium" brand to have so much confusion for a process that should be easy.

In the end, two battled it out for my business by sourcing exactly what I wanted and then it just came down to price.

I don't know how open you are about the specific white you want, but you may want to see if they would have better luck with a Glacier White, if they eat the $500 price difference in paint finishes. It could motivate them to source your exact specs.

I understand your frustration. The whole process can be a bit irritating, especially when you know what you want and the dealer isn't as enthusiastic. My best advice is to keep trying other dealers and one you may get lucky, like I did.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the info guys, i'm being asked to pay nearly $2000 to do an exchange with a dealer in California for a 2014 with Sline. It sounds like there is a chance Audi may add the Sline option back to the 2015 Q5. I would much rather get a 2015 Sline with the new piano black interior. Did AoA say anything about Sline on 2015?

when I called in...they said it will be available..my audi dealership has an accessory guide that shows the new s line wheels (you will have to get the high gloss black aka black optic aka s line plus) and it will only be available on 3.0T and up..

if you want the "peelers" then you need to get the 2014

instead of transfer...you can just contact the dealer that has it...fly there and drive back..

my friends have done that to make a small road trip

I did a search on edmunds with a 500 mile radius and the exact configuration I wanted, regardless of color didn't show up

AoA admitted some dealers may be going through transitional periods with the 2015...but he said all of the dealers should have it...

maybe it's just the salesperson I have been dealing with...

it's infuriating they want me to order 2014 specs to a 2015 model, when AoA tells me the packages are different

maybe it's their ploy, to infuriate me to just buy it.

I'm not in dire need of a car at this exact moment, so I'm fine waiting until the dealers get their act together.

if anyone wants a fully loaded black pearl 3.0T with black optics and mmi+, audi in jacksonville fl has one with 400 miles they are willing to move

I hate black and I'm against navi, but they keep asking me if I want it...

You need to put the blame mostly on Audi and their suppliers.

The titanium rims & black optic packages are frequently on back order, not available, or while available, create ordering delays or only available as sold orders.

Just like the new a3. They advertise the car with the hot 19" rims.

Which were unavailable and on back order before the car ever came out.

Yea what a crappy experience this is. But....my local dealer is trying to tell me that I can get the same configuration, down to the wheels, which contradicts AoA

Just placed my order for a 2015 Q5 P+ - got an unexpected good deal considering they were desperate at month and quarter end.

The system showed delivery by 7/14 but the dealer said since it is now marked sold for me that it would go straight on a truck instead of train to the dealership which would be faster.

From the Houston port - anyone know how early it might get here ?

Thanks - sorry for re-reply

FWIW, dealers (and salespeople) don't achieve quotas or commissions for orders, only delivered cars. If you got a good deal it was probably due to your superior negotiating skills and not an end of month thing.

Buying from a dealer's inventory at the end of a month or quarter though, can make a difference. There's no better date to get a great deal than to walk in and buy a car off the lot at 4 PM on Dec 24 or Dec 31. Been there, done that. Amazing how flexible on price and fast to close a deal in your favor it becomes when their EOY sales quota is in play and they've already got one foot out the door to go to their holiday parties.

Nice, did you call into AoA or your dealership?
