Must have s tronic, heated seats and nav; and tempted by the convertible
Budget will mean early models, £10k entry models meaning probably about 100k. Seen some indi dealers about £11k example s5, so with some negotiating or a private one I hope next year should see some examples in budget...
They had a nice blue one before

My budget doesn’t allow but I would like a s5 convertible
What others have you seen or good research?
What is the s tronic service interval, time or distant?
I remember when looking at older a4 the cvt or multitronics were troublesome and advice was best leave them alone.
I know the like of Toyota use cvt and are apparently awesome and reliable kit; is the a5 cvt in the same bracket now ?
Above reply is a very good reply
As long as you're not after a "fun" drive car then it ticks a lot of boxes
It's a very nice car but with me as well only averaging 14mpg it really was one the main running issues. I didn't want to spend any money on upgrades but it 100% needs an exhaust upgrade...
Clinical is a good word to describe the s4 now I feel
But that's personal opinion
And depends what you have experienced before
Please OP don't let this put you off, try one. The guy I sold mine too loved it on an hour+ test drive. He was only going to use it at weekend though as he lives in London
That's a good call
I didn't realise sport mode was 5 gears only when I started with playing with the paddles
Personally tiptronic worked well on this car and would imagine if I had in manual I would have got on with it even less
You're kind of right there, it was never exciting. I too had a diesel pushing those figures at the time from a BMW 35d remapped :)
Saying that it's not all about power figures, as more doesn't mean more fun
S4 for me was never engaging
I had one
Same thinking as you
You get a lot of car for your money
I didn't keep mine for long, mainly of low mpg on a daily commute was getting to me and if I was to keep it, was going to be a money pit as it needs an aftermarket exhaust and some wear and tear items will need looking at to...
