Hello from new owner

Post by Ivor bigun » Sat Jan 13, 2018 7:29 am

My Q2 S Line Quattro just Arrived at my local Audi today Friday 12/1/18 pick it up Monday Ibis White with Comfort & Sound pack ( B & O sound 14 speakers heated seats advanced front rear parking hill hold assist ) Dual Temp Aircon Privacy Glass Steel Pedals Flat bottom wheel with shift paddles S-Line sport pack 19 inch Y Alloys Sline LED interior light pack Its not a factory order but a ready built car but has most the options I want and I need it now (unforeseen circumstances!)
I will miss the power fold mirrors and reverse camera both which I will retrofit. And the headlight assist which I won’t (too expensive for retro fit) also the oomph! l :D and the drive select exhaust sounds :oops: of the S1 and the heated front screen of the Fords come on Audi offer it It’s cold up here in the North
On the upside the Q2 has the 7 speed flappy paddle auto shift which I couldn’t have on the Audi S1 Competition Also the heated seats which I forgot to add to the Audi S1 as Ford ST 3 leather trim comes with heated seats and I thought Audi leather sports seats did too I was wrong and cold and then the speed limiter which I have had on my last 2 Ford Focus STs brilliant for all the motorway roadworks speed cameras so it is a bit swings and roundabouts for me
It is Replacement for a 6 month old Audi S1 Competition which had all the extras except the heaters in the leather seats (Atemtempted Theft) 2 cars prior to that Focus XT 3s Silver 1st then White last
To run alongside our second car Audi TT S Line Black Quattro Roadster also Ibis White all the trimmings except Magnet Ride
I chose the Q2 as I have one as a loan car and my wife loves it she says she can get in with out having to put a hand on the floor when parked along side a kerb :!: :roll: :lol: the loan car is the 1.4 cylinder on demand Q2 Sport in Ibis White The one I chose is to the same value as my ex S1 so no money is changing hands lol with all the discounts (I would have liked the Edition 1 otherwise)
And I think I have now accepted I am a little too old to be a boy racer unless of course there is a SQ2 or even RSQ2 in the pipeline
I did consider the Ford Focus RS as that too is AWD but so many reports of blown heads and gaskets at 6000 mile put me off even though there is a price match
Oh and I’m Ivor Bigun on all the forums :D Audi and Ford as I drive Huge Truck carrying abnormal loads which is where my mate started calling my Ivor Bigun in the 80s as there was a Doc Cox BBC that’s life presenters who did a rude song yes I know I’m giving my age away a little :oops:
I have the VCDS and do tweak some options on my Audi’s live in Yorkshire
Enough for now about me and the Q2

Hi Ivor, welcome to the forum :) Hope you'll enjoy your Q2, as much as many members on here enjoy theirs. There does indeed appear to be an SQ2 in the pipelines, but can't confirm this.

Hi Ivior - like you I went for a pre-built Q2, my ideal spec was with folding mirrors and rear camera. Did you get a quote for the retro fit, I was quoted £1200 to fit folding mirrors ( Audi eventually reduced this to £1000) it's a bit steep given that the factory fit is £275. I didn't bother asking about the cost for retro fit rear camera, although I'd be interested to know what you are quoted...Regards Brian
