    2008 A5 3.0TDi fuel leak :(

    Contact Trups at EM Tuning (think they may be a forum sponsor on here). He supplied me with white fog bulbs for very reasonable price (about a tenner) and they're pretty easy to fit if you go in from the leading edge of the front wheel arch.

    I didn't have to get past under tray on my 2014 model so they must have changed it. I had unrestricted access.

    New Member - HELP On Buying an A5 Please...

    I've not driven the 1.8 so I can't comment on it's performance. There is always the modifications route if you bought it and it felt too slow. I think the price with that kind of mileage isn't too bad, but I'd always haggle on the price as there is room. If I'm brutal, I have the satnav and...

    Noob member, Few questions and intro.

    Not seen many with remaps on the 2.7, quite a few on the 3.0TDI with good results so it's worth contacting some of the tuners (ECU & chip) to see whats on offer and for what money. And welcome to the forums.

    A5 Cruise Control

    Because if you want a Golf it's a fairly competitive market so they give it to you. If you want an Audi they're view is you're prepared to pay, so you will pay (for everything)! Miracle they don't make us pay for the air in the cabin, but don't mention it to them or they might.

    My S5 4.2 V8 Sprint Blue

    That will make a big difference. I'm torn on red as the black just disappear so I've been looking into silver Alcon's (alternative is red), but still not able to decide which I prefer. Red should look good against the blue though so looking forward to seeing how they come up.

    Main dealer? Which one.

    2.0T FSI excessive mpg and oil usage

    I don't understand how some of the 2.0T engines are so problematic, whilst the ones in the S3 seem fine (maybe they use different rings etc.). Can't believe the costs are so high either, what you've been quoted seem criminally high. I'd speak to a decent independent to get another view as...

    A5 ride height

    I would doubt it as I'd guess they're share the majority of underpinnings but I couldn't be 100% on that

    Many thanks for taking the time to go through that, I didn't fancy screwing into the plastics and at least this route gives a damage free / robust connection. Time to get some ultra thin black cable ties.

    My S5 4.2 V8 Sprint Blue

    Do love Sprint blue, works well even on the big car. Looks in great condition. Interested to see what you do. Has the head ever been de-coked? If not there is some very easy BHP on offer!

    Do you have to physically screw it in with self tappers? I'm hoping if this is the case you screw into the upper edge of the bumper so it's invisible! Waiting for delivery so hope to get it by the weekend. So pleased you did it as I don't think I'd have got one as in my head it seemed to showy...

    A5 2.0 Turbo (225Hp) views?

    Drove an S3 saloon (mapped) this week and it was astonishingly good. Felt more precise than the S5 other than in fast corners where the S5's sports diff works miracles. I like the S5 but do find it a touch on the large side. That said I think the interior feels slightly better put together.

    A5 2.0 Turbo (225Hp) views?

    I drove a 2.0TDi as a hire car for two weeks and I didn't gel with it at all. It doesn't have the refinement of the 3.0 diesel and to me felt like the engine wasn't the greatest match for the car (with a manual box). Felt clunky and a bit agricultural for a coupe. Whether S-Trinon would improve...

    Cheers for that, just ordered one as the front end of our car is very black and could do with some detail to lift it a touch.

    New Black Edition Sepang S5 Coupe, About To Be Born

    Lovely car. Really do like the sepang colour on it, and gutted it came out 2 months after I'd ordered! Arch gaps really don't settle much as I'd hoped so wheels always look lost in the arches.

    "Statler's A5 Sportback Anticipation and Build thread

    Can't believe all these late changes on the 64 plate cars (extended under tray covers / new style wheels / new engine covers.....). Car looking good chap, sorry to hear you've got some bridges to cross to get the mods on. Starting to feel I got off lightly! Hope you're enjoying it.
