    My New S5

    So on Wednesday afternoon I went to collect my new S5 from Audi. When I collected the car, it had 37KMs on it, so it's brand brand new.

    The total cost of the car was R 772 094.95 so around $ 94 157.92 - Got to love our import duty on cars... Audi Sandton looked after me on the deal, they gave me a 5% discount and are running the car on permits until 2013 when it will be registered.

    The car is Glacier White, with an all black interior.

    The Factory fitted options:
    Panoramic Electric Sunroof
    Park Distance Control, Front, Rear with Camera
    Bang and Olufsen Sound System
    19" Rotor Design Wheels
    Audi Music Interface

    Dealer Fitted options:
    Matrix
    Smash and Grab film
    Paint Tech treatment
    Driver Seat Memory

    I've only taken a couple photos on my phone of the exterior, with obligatory instagram'ness, but tomorrow I intend to take some decent pics with my SLR.

    This is the 3.0l TFSI. The V8 version and I were playing with each other this morning - the driver wanted to know if I wanted to trade, haha. I must say though, that V8 still sounds fantastic!

    Awesome! Right choice.

    Wish you got a vid. Actually, can you please make a vid of the stock 3.0 TFSI versus the V8? That would be huge.

    I know I said I'd upload some pics, ran out of time and had to go to the DRC for a week. Some pics of the roads.

    Yeah, the Congo is pretty $#@!ty, haha.

    Also, with the car in Sport, it makes a huge difference to the exhaust note - I need to record that!

    Scratched a rim in a parking lot. Took the rim in yesterday to be repaired and took some pics of what my car looks like now.

    It's terribly terribly sad, and the pictures are not safe for those who have a weak constitution.

    No, I haven't done anything to the car yet. I'm all kinds of useless.

    It's been raining in JHB for over a week now solid, finally some sun, so I gave her a clean today!

    I love that line that runs from the the head light through to the tail light.

    I also did some test driving of new cars from Audi this last month:

    Audi A7 3.0 TDI

    Not a bad drive, the A7 is a really big car! This was the 3.0L V6 Bi-Turbo, 230kW and 650nm of torque! I'm not really a fan of diesels, however, this car moves and there's just so much torque!

    Audi S7

    After dropping this car off at Audi, I noticed there was a brand new S7 sitting in their parking lot, and asked if I could take it for a test drive... Wow. I looove petrol engines! My only gripe with this car, is the really harsh gear changes in sport mode, the car tries to remove your head from your shoulders every time it changes down a gear!

    Drove the new RS7 today, wow, just wow. What a beast!

    Click here to enlarge

    The 8 speed gearbox isn't as hard as the 7 speed in the S7 weirdly enough. The soooound, oh man, the sound. I know they're 2 completely different types of cars, but choosing between this and an R8 is tough.

    R8 all day every day. That said, the RS7 is badass.
