    Looking to buy an A5

    hi all,

    i am on the look out for an A5 and have seen a 3.0 tdi quattro sport which i might be going for....
    a few typical newbie question:

    1. what should i look out for?
    2. can LED or facelift rear lights be retrofitted to the (it is a 2008 car)?
    3. what kind of BHP would stage 1 take the car to?

    i am selling my BMW e92 325i (3ltr) which i have upgraded from a SE to M sport (plus a few other things).

    thanks in advance

    Look out for gearbox / clutch issues, tumble flap motor issues and general wear and tear.

    Remap should see 300bhp, and yes the lights can be face lifted.

    I've had my A5 three weeks now, love it but it's not perfect!

    My only criticism is if you go for a manual is the heavily offset pedals and lack of space around the pedals due to the transmission eating into the drivers footwell. Also think the seat could be comfier, miss my old S3 Recaro seats! But still love the car

    If you can get one with the tech pack it's awesome, wasn't fussed by it at first but wouldn't have one without it now! Also interior light pack is a nice touch.
    Current:
    2013 Audi A5 Coupe Black Edition 2.0 tdi 177 manual with t
    echnology pack, interior lighting, cruise control, heated seats.
    Past:
    2006 Mk5 VW Golf GT 2.0 tdi 170
    2001 8L Audi S3 1.8T
    1998 8L Audi A3 1.8T
    1996 Mk3 VW Golf Gti 2.0 8v
