Beautiful! You have good taste sir (lol my 19 S5 is also Daytona with Black Optic). Anyone that doesn't think this is one of the best looking cars on the road is nuts.

Picked my car up on Wednesday but only took one quick pic before it got dirty... Tint is being installed next week so I'll get some better photos as soon as it's clean again .

Very nice that blue, in the sunlight, is such a perfect color!

Congratulations & Happy Motoring!

Very nice Quattrings! Did you sell the S5 SB?
Also, what is your RS lowered on?

Thanks! I ended up trading it in since the Audi dealer gave me a great price for it. I took a lot of the parts from the S5 (strut brace, wheels) and transferred it over to this, which was perfect. I ended up going with the H&R VTF with this one so I could fine tune the ride height more, ride is very good too.

So far I'm loving the car, but haven't really driven it much yet (<100 miles ). I was hoping to go for a decent drive this weekend, but as we have snow in the forecast for Denver, I won't be doing that as I still have the summer tires on. I'm hoping to avoid putting the winter tires on as I would normally have taken them off mid April anyway. So far I really like the V6, especially as it has SO much more torque at low speeds than my B8.5 RS5. The throttle is definitely more sensitive than the B8.5 but that may be because this car has so much more torque. The driving position is definitely different than the coupe and will take a little getting used to as the seat does not go as low as I expected. Also, the steering wheel is no where near as chunky as the one on the B8.5 RS5 which is a shame - loved that wheel.

I opted for Alcantara instead of full leather (warmer in winter, cooler in summer) and the seats look & feel awesome with the diamond stitching pattern. Interior is great (except for the armrest not fully covering/closing the center console and the glove box being tiny). I wasn't sure about the height of the center screen but after my limited driving, I don't find it obstructs my view or distracts me so far. The MMI is a nice improvement over my previous car, but will take me a little while to get used to with all the new functionality. I've noticed there seems to be a more exaggerated difference between the volume levels of different media sources so if I switch between an SD card or iPod back to the radio, the radio is much louder.

On the roads I have been driving, the ride in "auto" is significantly nicer than the B8.5 (which was pretty good) but I have not tried dynamic much yet which I expect to be really stiff. I'm looking forward to doing a little canyon driving once it warms up a bit and will have a better impression then.
