    Help needed. B7 3.0tdi - Manual vs Auto

    Personally, I wanted an auto mainly due to a) being lazy as well as due to couple of patches where it can be busy in the morning with start stop traffic (HS2 roadworks). The CVTs in 2.0tdis as well as multitronics in B8s are a bit slushy and a ticking time bomb, which kind of limits my...

    Help needed. B7 3.0tdi - Manual vs Auto

    Thanks buddy. Runaround meant more of a work commuter car. Doing nearly 150 miles per day for 3-4 days per week. Had a e90 330d and the timing chain on it snapped last week. Bought it couple of years ago as a commuter car [emoji2357] Currently doing same miles on the S4 and my wallet isn’t...

    Help needed. B7 3.0tdi - Manual vs Auto

    Hi folks, Looking at getting a 3.0tdi as a runaround. Came across two on Autotrader; one is a manual and the other auto and both are 2006. For those who have them, can I ask that apart from personal preference which one is better, i.e. manual or auto. How is the gearbox like on auto and what...

    Another omission on my part; gearbox is one thing that I should not have missed, so thanks @Dippy for highlighting it. Based on what I have read so far as well as learnt from @Dippy who knows about 0B5 more than Audi themselves / many in the forum, the latest revision / updates were after...

    Is the car tuned, are there any mods done to it or it is bone stock. You can ask if it is stealer maintained or by an Audi Specialist. If dealer, you can call Audi and get service records as it is all kept online and can be accessible by even an Audi Specialist. I have a 14 plate (July) at...

    With the exception of a few, I have always bought all my cars from up north; always clean and low mileage and relatively better priced. One of A4 and the S4 from Aberdeen and Mrs’ A4 and A3 from Dundee. Even when I was looking at getting rid of my S4 and planning on buying another one, I was...

    It is CGWC. CREC in a 14 plate would be hard to find if not impossible. 64 plate would be a CREC. Below is a picture of its cover:

    I agree with @Dippy here. If you can, go for a CREC engine as it gives you the peace of mind. [emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi @Remodot, welcome to ASN and great selection of cars you've had over the years. In terms of B8.5 S5 (2012 - 2016), there are quite a few threads on the subject here as well as on Audizine. I have provided the links below but will also try to summarise as much as I can...
