    How do you like it ? I'm 1200 miles into my S5 sportback (launch edition , all options ticked)... its a torque monster.. at 600 miles, i was not sure. Something happened to loosen it up at around 700 miles and now its just a torque monster !

    A5 Cab Vorsprung b9.5 - missing colour LEDs and turn assist

    Hi Jonstatt, I've got a fully loaded S5 sportback B9.5 (launch model, so same as Vorsprung plus some additional goodies, not that there were many boxes left to tick). Extended Lighting is the same on mine as it was on S4 B9 pre-facelift - the white strips on the B&O speakers at the door...

    Audi UK Configurator vs EU

    It’s also down to economics - the market for Audi is much larger in Germany vs UK . (A) they sell more volume there . (B) German company car structure means many of the units are not the standard ones like here with baseline engines etc, but high spec .. very much down to differences in tax and...

    Running cost comparison S4 Tfsi vs 3.0 Tdi 272

    Not sure yet. I know I’ll spend a lot less time at the fuel station. And I like the lower coupe style . And it looks great ...an absolute torque monster . I’ve run it it now & opened it up a couple of times . More rapid , I think, but less drama ..way less drama to get up to speed ... not much...

    Running cost comparison S4 Tfsi vs 3.0 Tdi 272

    I sold my S4 recently . I averaged over 32mpg, but mostly in efficiency mode with switch to dynamic now and then . If you drive it in dynamic all the time , you’ll knock 30% off that I reckon. my diesel S5 is getting 33 right now, but it’s new (1K miles) and is only doing short runs around...

    New car spec and a couple of questions

    Hi Vertigo1, I’d download the owners handbook and check the comfort access. One of the great features of the S4 I just sold that had the comfort & access pack was that you could turn the ‘open’ part of the comfort access off (i.e. you needed the keyfob in proximity to the car .. couldn’t just...

    Opinions on alloys please

    Personally, I’d keep what you have .. they look smart and modern with ibis body colour. .I find rotors look a bit naff, and prefer the spoke alloys. But it’s a real personal thing and neither right or wrong .. only you can decide what you like

    Alarm glass break & tilt sensor

    What does the car manual say ? Extract here from 2020 user manual (don’t have the 2017 to hand ).. Not hugely descriptive though could interpret as break-in covers glass being compromised , and the tilt covered by the vehicle angle statement ... Break-in security feature The alarm will...

    A4 vs S4 ride comfort

    Really surprised why adaptive is such a rare option. I had it on my S4, and it was a must have for me on my change to S5. It does a damned good job of ironing out the bumps and thumps..

    Positive S5 comments

    Facelift 2020 A4 B9.5 dynamic headlights

    It’s a bit of a gimmick. Have matrix / laser lights on my S5 and they do what I can only describe as a Kinghtrider Kit routine sweeping left/right and back again a few times with a finishing blue tinge ,, ( those of a certain vintage only will get that ..).. utterly pointless and you never see...

    Thoughts on S4 B9 Petrol Replacements?

    I took the diesel route .. trading from S4 avant to S5 sportback (launch model , fully loaded). I’m still getting used to it. It feels faster vs S4 .. though you have to fight a bit when getting all the torque down as it tramlines a bit. Is a superb cruiser , and a torque monster with 45mpg on a...
