Audi S5

Starting to feel like Troy over here.

My Audi Exclusive Teak Brown Metallic 2010 S5 landed today. Audi Exclusive colors are not standard options. They have a selection of upgraded colors available every year, but you are typically walking into the dealer and building your car, they are not shown online when "building" your car. They will produce some of these without customers but they are in more popular colors than the brown you see here.

Looking at a 2010 Prestige w/35k original miles, Pearl Silver interior. I will not be going nuts with it, replacing my C6 S6 as my daily driver. More better pics to come, a couple of '57 Benz 300SL's tucked away in there.

A little detail from AoA
  • 1,896 - Model Year 2010 S5 Coupe 4.2 2-DR Auto Quattro models sold in the U.S.
  • 21 Model Year 2010 S5 Coupe 4.2 2-DR Auto Quattro model with Audi Exclusive colors models sold in the U.S.
  • 1 Model Year 2010 S5 Coupe 4.2 2-DR Auto Quattro model with the Audi Exclusive color paired with a Pearl Silver interior models in the U.S.
  • I have searched years 2007-2016 A5, S5, RS5 models to see if any other vehicles have your same interior and exterior. I was only able to locate one other vehicle in 2011 that shared these colors this was a 2011 S5. You have a very special vehicle on your hands!

Re: Audi S5

Not a fan of Audi generally, but I definitely do appreciate the looks of the S5's

Super secksi mode of transportation you've got there Donn! Always fun to own a "rare" version of a line of cars.

Congrats!

Fair point......

The transport rig was crazy nice, his sleeper has a shitter and a shower. It actually took 7.5 weeks for the car to pickup and deliver because half their fleet was on the West Coast for the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. This S5 is mint and the last uship move I had they sold the load 3 times, which made payment a super pain in the ass. Plus the rig it showed up on was a bit janky. Just didn't want to risk it with this one.

Re: Audi S5

Reliable does the Barrett-Jackson auctions as well. Last two we attended in Vegas we saw 20+ of their trucks behind the venue and as the week progressed, those trucks were being staged and loaded. Probably some pretty detailed logistics going on when determining how to load the trucks and the routes the trucks will be taking to get them all delivered efficiently.

7.5 weeks though..... damn. Had a buddy at work just buy a '19 SRT8 Grand Cherokee from a dealership in Michigan. Took a week to get the ride sold, but just a day and a half to get it delivered.

What'd Reliable charge for that ride? My buddy paid $800 and that was on an open flat bed that was also loaded with a large front end loader. Said it would have been $1400 for an enclosed ride.

Re: Audi S5

$1,906 for the ride from Boston. Reliable has a lot of manufacturer contracts as well. I'm sure the individual moves are a pretty small part of their business. They are headquartered in Michigan.

The stock sport suspension is not too shabby. A little floaty but not terrible. Working on correcting that.

Bilstein Pro kit going on next week with the lightweight wheels and new tires. It can still benefit from stiffer sways. I'll pick those up down the road.

Re: Audi S5

Choice interior pieces piling up.

Full RS5 Piano set, 3G+ MMI w/Euro RS5 panel, Drive Select and backup camera. Everything here is new outside of the trim, which is immaculate.

Re: Audi S5

Didn't end up liking my first setup. Got a different set of wheels, not sure when I'll get them mounted.
