I've my name down for one and great videos, not only the interior explained but the others as well. One thing I noticed was that at the tail end of the video of the car being driven through the countryside, I am sure it's the exact same place that Audi choose for their TT-RS video shoot.

Are they all using the same PR company to show off their new wares?????

Check it out and see if you agree.

The interior is very nice. But it's almost copying 100% the f01 7 series. So there's nothing new.

Does everyone else notice the IDrive knob to be too far to the right of the driver? Sort of out of reach? I feel that youi'd have to stretch a bit to get a hold of it. Maybe I'm wrong?

Actually it's the same as the 5GT and after sitting in it and using the system it's not going to be an issue at all.

Nice interior overall, but I'm not a fan of those bulging monitors in the rear. Can't be good for rear passenger safety in the event of a crash either. Why couldn't they simply integrate the monitors into the front headrests?

sort of off topic (didn't know where to post), when can you order a 550i? Cause on the UK site, it says "520d available from launch", now, is that the revealing launch or some other godforsaken weird thing? Does that ONLY apply to the 520d or even other models , if not, when can I place an order for the 550i (in the UK, if that makes any difference).

headrests? thats kinda ghetto

i agree on how they bulge out. i think it wouldve been better to see them placed in a way similar to monitors on airplanes. it would reduce the amount of occupied space
