Audi A5 Sportback (2G) in production since 2016
Selling my Mercedes was certainly not necessary, it was only 5 years old, with low mileage and in a "like new" condition. But, of course, I simply grew tired of it. I had taken such good care of it that it started to become boring. A certain role was played by Mishutka's ultra-modern four, which we bought him a year ago. I had long wanted to change something, but I couldn't bring myself to do it.
With the start of autumn, the thoughts began to come more often. One evening, returning from work, I found myself in a traffic jam next to the latest RS3. They are rare, and I was very impressed. But the RS3 itself did not quite suit me, too small, I thought to look at the RSQ3. Yes, my wife already has Q3, but I like it so much that owning an RS would be very nice. For several weeks I was completely sure to buy it. But after objectively considering it, I refused this adventure, it's not liquid, morally outdated (in 18 the new one will come out), and the tax...
And through all these thorns, I still came to the Audi A5 Sportback B9, which I had seen only a couple of times, but which I secretly dreamed of as soon as I learned about the release of the new one a year and a half ago. I honestly admit that I never understood the A5 in the previous body, neither coupe, nor sportback. I also did not understand the A7 for a long time... And then I understood and adored the A7 with all my heart first, it is somehow timeless and incredibly proportional, flat and beautiful. But it's big and I do not need it))) But there is some similarity with the long A5, realizing this I fell in love with the A5 with a back, not the coupe. Plus, the five is relatively compact and just right. So on the A5 B9 I have been aiming for a long time...
During one of the visits to the dealers for Q3 brake pumping in the summer, I sat and looked at the sportback in real life, even photographed it to show my wife, we were waiting to see it live together. I can't say that I was shocked, but I liked it. The reason is probably because inside it's Mishina's A4, which has become familiar.
Then attempts to sell the Mercedes. It sold quickly and easily at an excellent price.
And such a pleasant and torturous choice of the one in the salons...
Although all the choice took place after I had booked mine. I did not find anything better) After the chaotic purchase of the Mercedes, I wanted to choose more thoroughly, especially the color...
There are not so many requirements, without any super options, but it should be special for me.
1. Of course, gasoline quattro 249 hp.
2. Two S-lines
3. 19 wheels
4. Black exterior styling
5. Daytona Gray color
The first two points are a given, the third is mandatory, stock discs for winter, 18s are already quite insufficient here. As for the color, I never thought about it, but as I later realized, I always paid attention to Daytona. In general, the Mercedes was supposed to be dark gray, but it did not work out) Here from the entire palette I only aimed at it. And it goes very well with black styling, also obligatory.
But as I said earlier, I realized all this after booking my car, realizing that it's fate)))) Otherwise, the configuration is without navigation, bangs and virtual cockpit, which I personally don't really need. Bonus 30-color QQ2 interior lighting, luggage package with stainless steel on the edge of the trunk and media interface. Alcantara leather, black ceiling, LED of course, masthev...
Payment, a week's wait on the metro) And I am the owner of the Audi A5 Sportback!
