Default S5 Sportback Delivered

Manhattan Grey, black optics, Cavo 19" wheels and replaced my A7. Hadn't driven the S5 Sportback (ordered from early production run), just the S4 Avant and S5 Coupé. The Coupé has a shorter wheelbase than the others, and feels more pointy/darty/loose/agile (pick the adjective that suits your lexicon) as a result. The Sportback feels more like the S4, but the difference is relatively subtle.

I am going to have to read the manual this time

Thanks all, happy with the colour combinations.

Black optics will eventually turn up in NA. It was not originally available in my market, and appeared on the order system the day I went in to confirm. So it is hard to predict when it will appear. Was considering Navarra Blue initially, and black optics not such a good fit there.

Stunning! I wish they would start delivering A5/S5 Sportbacks in the US or I am going to have to go elsewhere.

Really like the rear quarter panel. It looks so wide almost like an Aston.
