    Tyre choices - Michelin or Conti?

    Thanks for the advice guys, I've bitten the bullet and ordered the Michelins!

    Tyre choices - Michelin or Conti?

    Thanks for the pointers folks, the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S and Super Sports are all a bit above my budget, I'm afraid. I've found The Contis on oponeo.co.uk for £136 a tyre and on tyreleader.co.uk for £132 a tyre and the Michelins on blackcircles.com for£136.70, all including delivery.

    Tyre choices - Michelin or Conti?

    Needing a set of new tyres for my 2008 S5, 255 35 R19. After much deliberation I have narrowed it down to two options which I can get for around the £130 mark per corner - Michelin Pilot Sport 4 or Continental SportContact 6. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with them. All online...

    Central Locking Problem on 2008 Audi S5

    So the car showed up two fault codes on VCDS - both touch sensors, apparently. I have no idea what that could be - particularly given that my car doesn't have keyless entry. Any ideas what could have caused this fault?

    Central Locking Problem on 2008 Audi S5

    Thanks for that - I'll get him to give it a scan over the weekend, hopefully. You know how cryptic the fault readings can be - it's like the equivalent of saying that the kettle isn't boiling, but what it doesn't tell you is that there's no water in the kettle! Total headache!

    Central Locking Problem on 2008 Audi S5

    I've got a mate who can get access to VCDS to hopefully scan it for faults. Hopefully that can identify the problem but you know what that's like, it doesn't always give you the source of the problem! Have you heard of this type of fault before?

    Central Locking Problem on 2008 Audi S5

    Hello, all! Frosty morning up here in Glasgow - had an age old problem of the driver's door handle not working - but that was just the start of the problem. I started the car and got the heating on full blast - that sometimes frees up the mechanism - finally got the door closed after a few...

    2008 S5 heated seats warming up under heavy acceleration

    No, it's not got stop start technology. The full thing is quite odd, indeed. Is it maybe drawing more voltage from the battery, somehow?

    2008 S5 heated seats warming up under heavy acceleration

    The seats were set to "2". It doesn't get particularly hot, nothing like what it feels at "6" but noticeably warmer! Is this an alternator issue?

    2008 S5 heated seats warming up under heavy acceleration

    Hi there, just wondering if someone could offer some advice. I am not sure of what is actually mechanically/electrically happening but under fairly heavy acceleration, my heated seats are noticeably warming up. I am wondering if this is normal activity given the electrical set up of the car, or...
