You take it with mark up and oh yeah, you only get silver or black.(Very popular I guess, just look around)
Q5's are always hard to find, and go for high prices pre-owned.

When we bought ours, we got it through Audi's supplier purchase program, but I also got some good deals through Zagg/TrueCar/AmEx Auto Buying. We wound up with Meteor Grey, which I like ok (it's pearl effect, and I prefer metallic).

We liked the new Explorer as well, but with the 3.0T now available in the Q5, I'd grab that in a heartbeat.
