    A5 transmission

    Can anyone give me the details of the new transmission for the new A4 and A5. I read that the front wheels are now further forward compared to the engine, and am interested to see how it has been done.

    Many thanks

    transmission as was: manual 6 speed for the 3.0TDI and S5 !!!!
    DSG style squentual auto box for the 2.7TDI.
    Chassis changed to move engine further back, I have driven these cars and it ain't made much difference to my mind.

    this was from the initial launch of the A5

    "Overall, the front axle is located a long way forward for a longitudinal engine configuration with front- and four-wheel drive. This new vehicle architecture makes it possible to have a long wheelbase with a short front overhang, and to optimise the axle load distribution. These are all additional elements that enhance the supreme handling qualities of the new Audi A5. To accomplish this special design, the engineers used a trick adopted from the Audi A8: the front axle differential is located in front of the clutch."

    just interested in the layout, and the reduction in overhang - its got to be good news for the feel of the car......
