    Tech Pack -> WiFi/Data Plan

    What's a manual? ;) So should I need anything to just use internet radio - or is that technically utilising the WiFi hotspot (which I actually have no use for anyway).

    Tech Pack -> WiFi/Data Plan

    Ah ok, I had at least hoped internet radio would have been covered - it worked to begin with but not any more. Have to say the process of internet radio in the car is pretty silly given you have to start the MMi app on your phone.

    Tech Pack -> WiFi/Data Plan

    Hi all I thought the tech pack came with a prepaid SIM? I'm trying to use the WiFi in the car but it says you have to register then buy a plan. Am I missing something, or did I imagine the free element? I'm sure I read it was subject to fair usage somewhere. Note I confidently told the dealer...

    40 TFSI - MPG

    Oh, and I haven't tried economy mode yet, I found that worse on fuel in my Q3. I also switch off start/stop as I'm not convinced it saves fuel unless you're sat in traffic for ages.

    40 TFSI - MPG

    Isn't the difference just the additives - you're paying for those? I generally get BP/Shell because of that. Mines averaging about 38MPG in real life, though the MMI claimed 51MPG on a long run the other day.

    40 TFSI - MPG

    Wow, I’m not sure how I could live with that! Fun though :tongueclosed: Not a bad run this morning, without trying but not over 70 mph

    40 TFSI - MPG

    14? Well done on that... worst I've had is 25 on a short journey. I need to try harder :tonguewink:

    Anyone compared the 35/40 TFSI?

    Maybe laggy is the wrong term, but it suffers from the delayed response at junctions - S does the trick though! Def agree on the tailpipes - looks great :thumbs up:

    40 TFSI - MPG

    So - first 'full' tank, mostly my 70% motorway commute but including some rotten traffic (care of not leaving early enough) and a longer motorway trip (60 miles) and it returned 38.7 mpg. Admittedly I haven't ragged it but given it's still running in and the temps have been fairly low that's...

    Anyone compared the 35/40 TFSI?

    Coming from a diesel (quattro) Q3 to the 40 TFSI, I think personally I would find the 35 TFSI under-powered. I guess it all depends on what you've been used to. The A5 is a big car, at a guess I'd say it was more than sufficient in the A4 saloon but might be a bit underwhelming in an A5. That...

    New Audi A5/S5 picture thread

    I can't help but think it will make more sense when there are more electric/hybrids. But even then it makes no sense against KW. Pretty sure the equivalent from BMW, i.e x40i is a 3.0 turbo? One thing I will say is I get more people trying to ride my backside than in the Q3!

    Starting to wish I'd had the 40 TFSI removed now, about five people now have asked me if it's a 4.0 litre... I wish ;)

    Wheel spin on acceleration

    I remain hopeful that three years from now it will be possible to spec a 40 TFSI Quattro - the 45 is far too expensive, may as well have an 'S'. That said E-Trons will likely be more prevalent by then. I won't have another non-Quattro unless the price makes it impossible.

    Wheel spin on acceleration

    Same with mine, I knew this was going to be an issue coming from a Quattro. It's not too bad though - these days there isn't a ton of requirement to do a 0-60 foot to the floor. I'd be more annoyed it it suffered wheelspin accelerating from a lower speed. That said I will definitely have...

    Start/Stop

    Thanks for all the comments guys, glad it's 'normal'. I still find myself turning it off though, not a fan with an auto box, but def better than it was on the Q3 (also auto).

    Start/Stop

    Hi all, Not usually a fan of start/stop but finding it more bearable in the A5, possibly because the petrol engine responds faster. In any case, it has cut in a couple of time when lifting off at speed - is that normal?! I was on the motorway yesterday and lifted from ~70mph and the engine...

    keyless entry disable

    I agree, to be honest I prefer the button anyway and the boot kick isn't amazing.
