Default Audi.com Q5 config change?

Even though my Q5 3.0 TSFI is on the boat, I was playing around with the "Build Your Audi" on the audi.com site and it seems there has been some config changes? Or maybe I just didn't notice them before...

- When selecting the S-Line Plus package, it defaults to Chestnut Brown interior???
- Comfort Package is $0, was this always the cost? I'm thinking that I would have selected this if it were $0.

Anyways, probably i wasn't paying attention

I noticed the Chestnut Brown being the only option when I was monkeying with it yesterday. Super weird. Comfort was still a $2300 (I think?) option yesterday.

Default A variety of bugs existed w/ the site last year too

The brown interior was often a point of online configuration contention, especially on the 2.0T's and Hybrids.

I would not rely on it. Instead, get your hands on a pdf of the most current Audi Order Guide for the Q5. That's what the dealer (and Audi) actually use/rely on for what really is available and what it costs.

I found the Build your Audi feature to be buggy, confusing, and incorrect. Nice pics,but the site needs lots of work and testing.

Default Note to Audi USA:

Get a new IT function or a new vendor. The old control everything from the Vaterland German stereotype approach doesn't work. No online owners manuals and the horrifically bad (non-existent) support of maintenance manuals by Bentley Publications in the yesteryear era (XP) are more manifestations of the same.

Pretty clearly the low profile Silicon Valley team doing MMI and Audi Connect and such--look at the map examples on the Audi USA site carefully; they are in the Valley--don't own this "boring stuff" like web site Q.C. and documentation.
