    Really Iritating Tv Adverts....arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    I don't usually find buying cars a "Cinch" - sorry Rylan even with a 14 day moneyback guarantee there is no way I would entertain this method of buying a car. When it comes to TV adverts I start watching something 20 mins after its started and fast forward thru the adverts ....cos most are...

    What do you hate???

    Only a few things annoy me these days - i'm pretty chilled behind the wheel :) but here goes : Drivers of shitbox cars with pop and bang exhausts who want to do anything to get past you (and disturb my slumber at home). Drivers who drive up my chuff when I have no where else to go. Bell ends...

    2015 S5 - Love it !

    Hi Folks.......I sold my previous 2011 3.0TDi A5 QBE Coupe in Sept 2019 and purchased a 2015 3.0 S5 Coupe at the time......and I have been away from this site for a bit but have now returned :). Now if truth be told I do miss the torques of the old oil burner but S5 has a massive grin factor.

    Service question - gearbox oil change

    Had my 3.0TDi S-Line Quattro Black Edition S-Tronic Gearbox oil changed at 40K miles at my local Audi Dealer for £175. The local indy quoted £140. I was completely unaware of the gearbox oil change, and was reminded by Audi when I booked car in for a Big Service (£399) Stuck with Audi Dealer...

    The all new a5/s5 coupe

    Looks good to me ! The one thing I do like about Audi's is that the newly introduced models don't look madly different from the old ones (to the untrained non Audi owner eye - if you get me meaning) if you have a 2011 A5 its not looking dated overnight... Some of the newer BMW's look...

    A5 3.0 TDI S-Tronic & Remap

    Yes, you can leave it in "D" and use steering wheel paddles and it automatically switches to M mode, or you can use the gear selector in centre console........if car senses that you are slowing down without dropping manually it will automatically revert to D mode eventually Me being a complete...

    Hi I have a 2011 A5 3,0TDi S-Line BE Coupe with S-Tronic (7 speed) box and its without doubt best engine /gearbox combo i have ever had. Mines just turned 40K miles, so no idea how reliable the S-tronic is on high mileage cars.... My sentiments about the car are the same as Swanny356, getting...

    Buying A5 - What is the most reliable engine?

    Concur ! I found my 2010 2.0TDi 1 A4 Avant Quattro A4 170HP version beautifully built but a bit of a slug quite honesty. 1st and 2nd gear are almost like pull away with a caravan set up... The 3.0TDi Quattro A5 is flipping awesome....mine is the 240 odd HP Quattro Sline Black Edition.....and it...

    One very dirty trick is that the Estate Agents will charge their percentage on the price advertised, not what it actually sold for .....If I could cut out Estate Agents completely I would.....

    Have good manners disappeared?

    Politeness and curtesy cost nothing........ The worst thing that seems endemic up here in the North West (Leyland, Chorley, Preston) are people pulling out in front of you at roundabouts......they are "supposed" to give way to vehicles coming from their right, but I get the impression they...

    Agreed ! I will get my car serviced by Audi - but any big jobs that need doing will be done at an Indy !
