    For Sale A5 3.0 TDi S-Line SE Quattro Sportback 2010 FSH Phantom Black

    I’m very reluctantly selling my pride and joy, as now working from home and I can no longer justify keeping two cars for 2,000 miles a year between them. 109k miles. This car is immaculate with £ thousands spent improving it, in my 8 years of very contented ownership. Recently had all alloys...

    Engine Management light intermittent

    My 3.0 TDi did this twice, once for the EGR and once for the DPF. May be worth booking in with a local independent garage to do a full diagnostic, as it should store the codes. If you‘re in the midlands, I can’t recommend Tim at A1 highly enough. He’s looked after me and my Audi’s for years.

    DPF clogged can't regenerate LIMP mode HELP

    I had a similar issue on my 3.0TDi My mate at my local indi garage tried to force the regen to no avail. He therefore tricked the car into thinking a new DPF was fitted, which then ran the regen and touch wood I’ve had no issues since.

    Just taken ownership of 2012 A5 Coupe Quattro 3.0TDI - Thoughts and Opinions Welcome

    Worth getting that oil change done, gives you piece of mind. 034 Motorsport transmission mount is a really easy, cheap mod and smooths things up a bit more. Sounds like a ballast issue with the light, I,ll second that the Osram bulbs make such a difference. Not cheap but worth it. Good luck...

    S5 Rear diffuser

    Love that spoiler, looks great - sets off those wheels a treat! Side blades in black would finish the look. Nice idea that :whistle2:

    Picked up the S5 today

    Ooh that’s nice - Good choice. A black / carbon boot lip spoiler would look great with that front splitter and those wheels. Same with the side skirts.

    Forgot to say I’m in The Midlands, so you’d be dirtier when you got back home! I bought the garage and got a free house with it

    Best place to purchase RS grill for my S5?

    I originally purchased my fog light grills from the A5OC forum but a kamikaze pheasant saw off one of them. Got the second set from eBay and no complaints for a 1/4 of the price. I’m not sure if the original rings will fit but I thought xenonz used to supply.

    A few A5 questions

    S5 bootlip spoiler for starters. I run 10mm spacers all round, but could have easy gone 15mm rears

    S5 full fat V8 content

    I thought my OCD was bad, but nothing compared to yours :thumbs up: How tricky was is it to remove the window surrounds, still not 100% happy with the wrap I’ve done?
