Audi A5 Cabrio – buy now or wait for the new version?

As part of my mid-life crisis, I've been looking at Audi A5 Cabrio deals. However, with the new model imminent, would it be better to wait for the new car? And when will you get the chance to road test it?

We're testing the new A5 on the 28th November, so expect a full road test shortly after that date. Don't know when the new cabrio will arrive, but guess at 6 - 9 months time. We also don't know how the current VED bands will be affected in the chancellor's autumn statement, so worth waiting for that.
