Bose has both of what you mentioned. Sat in a new A6 with a Bose system.

Oh cmon, this RS5 has B&O. The Bose speakers also have the little bose badges (not sure if all speakers have them, the front midbasses always do). So how does the bose system have less speakers than the B&O? Is its only the tweeters on the mirror pods which are less?

Arey i just told you what i saw on the new model.
PART of the reason why Bose has less speakers is as it is a less costly system. The B n O system with my car/3.2/Q7 comes out to ~2.15 lakh.
Bose is cheaper. If you have noticed even the top end music system of the A8 is a 22 speaker B & O.
Audi seem to have B & O as the benchmark system with a choice between Bose & B n O offered in mid-range.
Ok we are going seriously here. LOL

Fantastic, so finally you go live with the ownership report. And what a pleasant change from those who choose oil burner lumps as their mile crunchers. Obviously, you live to drive and that is the material petrolheads are made up of.

Congrats once again and take care of your jaw-dropping beauty. Do keep this thread updated in coming days.

Drive Hard and Drive Safe.

Congratulations again.
Yes that was probably me as I do my Speed Runs on that road very frequently. Quite a coincidence.

Why does your car have a pedestrian Audi Symphony system and the low reso version of MMI ??
Yes i know the dam music system hardly matters with that orgasmic NA v8 orchestra happening in the engine bay but still, i thought a Bang & Olufsen system and a full fledged MMI is a given in such a fantastic car.
Platz It has 14 speaker B&O but not MMI High. The Audi Symphony has nothing to do with B&O. I will post pics of the B&O shortly in this message. Unfortunately, this is the car they had ready - it has everything even the carbon fiber engine cover (visible in the first message) - wasteful IMO, Carbon fiber inserts everywhere, Large sunroof, B&O, Auto dimming everything, and a bunch of other stuff. just no MMI high which i really wanted but didn't want to wait for 6 months.

This is one mean and striking looking machine! The grill itself says a lot about the power it is packing inside.

Congratulations on your purchase and wish you many happy miles on it. Do drive safe

Hey there great car to own and drive. Definitely one of the best driver's car available in country today. Congrats for this beauty!

I think i might have seen your car on Friday around 12 PM on Sushant Lok road which connects it to Galleria- II. You were approaching the famous gurgaon potholes really carefully!

Yup probably was me as I am trying to be real careful with the cratered moonscape we call gurgaon roads. I frequent that road often.

Just one thing, If and when you do get a numberplate for the front.
Do please get a small thin neat numberplate like the one in the picture

I would suggest you do get one, but to keep it neat get one printed as a sticker, infact get one printed as a transparent sticker with only the numbers, and then stick it below one of the headlights. Since your car is white it should not be much of an issue and it wont look out of place.

One guys I know here in Gurgaon has an SLS AMG gull-wing, W12 A8, Jag XJ, Evoque and a bunch more and he has never put the front plates and only now has started putting stickers. I guess I should put at least stickers on pronto.
