#680 of 873 2012 V6 3.2L versus 2013 2.0T

Which car is better? 2012--3.2L V6 versus 2013--2.0T V4
I'm interested in buying (or leasing) a Q5 but I cannot choose between a 2012 V6 3.2L engine or a 2013 2.0T engine. A nearly fully loaded 2012 Q5 is being offered to me at $45K + tax. Does that still seem too high? Why would I buy that versus a cheaper and yet with some of the same add ons 2013 2.0L Q5? (Around 43K). Any insights would be helpful.

Just signed for a 2013 Q5 2T:
Audi Advance Key
Paid=$42,290 + Taxes/DMV Fees
Couldn't believe I was able to get them down this low.

Sounds like an awesome price. Which dealer is this? I can barely get 6% off MSRP using the supplier program and that's it.
#683 of 873 How easy is it to order a custom built Audi Q5?

I know this is common with BMW dealers (ordering a car direct from the factory) and they don't make attempts to sell you something on their lot. But with Audi, I am seeing very little inventory (at least here in the SF Bay Area) and am wondering if I should try putting together a custom order instead. While admittedly I haven't talked with more than one dealer, I get a feeling that Audi dealers want to have you pick something from their lot. What downsides could I expect with this type of order?
On a related question, I see places far off from the Bay Area- such as Bakersfield Audi- have a lot of inventory. Is it reasonable to drive there to do the deal or have a local dealer get the car from them and deliver it locally?

please share dealer info, I'm very close to purchasing a q5 and the numbers you have in your post are outstanding. Thanks!

Never saw a response to my questions, but just bought a 2013 Q5 at Bakersfield Audi for $200 over invoice. Absolutely worth the drive from the Bay Area as the dealers here allow you no price flexibility due to the high demand.
