    Just bought a Navarra blue S5 Sportback!

    Congrats on the car looks like a great spec. Did you get it from Lincoln Audi by any chance or the JCT600 group I recognise the body shop in the background :tearsofjoy:

    Just FYI, unless you car is under 3 years old and still under the standard new car manufacturers warranty I wouldn’t bother with a sunroof service personally, as Audi’s extended or used approved warranty covers literally nothing to do with sunroofs. Had an issue with my S5 sunroof and Audi...

    So the S3 has moved on...

    Glad you had a trouble free sale it’s definitely a sellers market right now, I can’t believe how mad the prices have got. A friend of mine in the trade reckons we are reaching / have reached the peak of used prices as production is apparently set to pick up towards the end of the year / early...

    Back to a S5 Again!

    Yeah thought it was odd, could’ve tried it I suppose but with such a big difference between what I’d been offered by the other dealer and their expected sale price I didn’t waste my time - plus the garage I sold it to was keen to get it this weekend and with the new reg coming out I didn’t want...

    Back to a S5 Again!

    Motorway didn’t work for me, valued my car before I took my private reg off, a week later I did it again and the valuation had lowered by over 3k based on my 17 plate reg :whistle2: I know others have had good success recently though!

    Back to a S5 Again!

    Yeah just frustrating more than anything especially as Sunroofs are exempt from all Audi warranties after 3 years! Can’t complain at getting over £2k more back in just under a year though, minus fuel and insurance obviously. Especially as the servicing, tyres and brakes would’ve cost me over a...

    Back to a S5 Again!

    So just shy of a year and 7k miles the S5 is gone! It’s been a great car maybe the best I’ve owned with all the tech but my ownership experience was ruined by the issues with the sunroof, pretty much constant rattling and knocking - Audi eventually seemed to fix this in the past month by...

    Rising used car prices.

    I’d agree seems like a very strong price compared to prices of used cars available on the market

    Rising used car prices.

    Thanks for the heads up, will definitely look to get an extended test drive in one. Regardless I think the S5 will go as I want to free up some money for a house move anyway. I do about 8k miles a year, main appeal is journeys around town saving me fuel by using the electric motor and my...

    Rising used car prices.

    Still debating selling my S5 I got a few values back a few weeks ago but never proceeded. Considering going with a Merc A Class or CLA 250E as my next car, I’d save a fortune in fuel but don’t know whether I’d miss the power of a S car. Alternatively I could car share for the next 6 months or...

    My S5 B9 Sportback

    Ah fair enough mate they look good fitted! Yeah I’m likely selling I’ve had a few really competitive offers which are hard to pass up on and after being told I’ll be working from home full time it’s difficult to justify keeping it when I’ve got use of another car too. May end up buying another...

    My S5 B9 Sportback

    Bit late to the party but I think they go great with Daytona, I’ve got them fitted to my car. If you aren’t in a rush to buy a set mine may well be going up for sale soon in the classifieds if I push ahead with selling the car in the next few weeks.

    Rising used car prices.

    Yeah I think I’m going to contact a few sports car dealers and see what sort of price I’d likely achieve. Any more than 30k is a bonus. I’ve seen poor spec 17 plates with low mileage up for around £32-33k so I may not be too far off in terms of my valuation given mines got literally every...

    Rising used car prices.

    Potentially but used car prices can’t stay this high forever, eventually things like the chip shortage will be resolved and production will go back to normal. Not to mention as everyone’s lives get back to normal after COVID (hopefully) will mean people start to spend money on other things...

    Rising used car prices.

    Seriously tempted to chop my S5 in now, I think I will if I get 30k for it. I’ve done 5k miles in a year and it’s just not getting used regularly enough. I’ve got access to a corsa if I need a little runaround and a A3 at the weekends if I wanted to go on a longer journey. It’ll be a bit of a...
