    been away but I'm back now :)

    I have been to the dark side, and in April I bought a Rangerover Sport.

    Ouch, anyway, Audi have let me swap it for a nice 08 S5!

    Looking foreword to picking that up on the 30th.

    I have a question, how easy is it to fit cruse control? is it just the stalk, and clicking the optuion in VCDS?

    Also, my S3 used to get 20mpg, and I had the S5 on an extended test drive, which include a lot of 70 / 80 MPH and town stop start. And it was getting 26mpg.

    I can not work this out, Is it due to the size of the engine not needing to work as hard, or am I going mad and seeing things???

    Anyone have any experience here?

    Ta Aspen.

    hi, welcome to the S5 club. i fitted cruise control to my S5 myself and is easy to do. apart from the stalk you will also need a steering cowl. vcds does the rest.
    i get about 21-22mog according to the dis and thats purely stop start town driving only, on the longer motorway im sure its achievable.

    ah cool thanks for the reply.

    I have worked out, using my sado excell spreadsheet and normal unleaded vs super unleaded the following:

    This car hates regular unleaded fuel,

    regular - town driving = 17.5mpg
    regular - motorway = 32mpg
    combined - 25mpg

    super unleaded - town = 21.9mpg
    super unleaded - motorway = 34.8mpg
    combined = 28.3mpg
