    Tyre choices - Michelin or Conti?

    The Pilot Sport 4s came out top when I got 2 new tyres a few months ago. There was a road-test review comparing the 4s against the super sport (with a mention of some other michelin tyres I think) and the basic conclusion was that the 4s is better, but only marginally. I have not complaints...

    a5 convertible rattle

    Haven't had this myself, but as it's there when the roof is up and not when the roof is down I'd start by looking at the movable compartment lid for the roof storage, perhaps something is loose here?

    Have I made a mistake going to 19" alloys?

    What tyre pressure are you running? I noticed a big difference between 35 and 40 psi. I'm on 20s and didn't notice any difference between some A5s on 19s I test drove (I was very surprised)

    What do you think?

    This will definitely divide opinion! I think the black looks good, especially in contrast with the silver bodywork, however I prefer the chrome rings. Personally I prefer the OEM+ look with more subtle changes... black rings is a step too far for me personally

    Saw the new RS5 today. Oh my.

    I'm sure it's a great machine, but as above I prefer the 2012/2013 facelift (B8.5) version. Wasn't a fan of the 1st gen A5 from the front, perhaps they'll improve it with a facelift in a few years!

    3.0 TDI Airbox Mod

    Just copied part of your mod and removed part of the scoop to deres trick air flow to the filter. Couldn't get the connector off the vacuum sensor so left the valve for now. The bit that puzzles me is why there isn't an opening at the front of the trim at the top of the engine to allow air in...

    Changed To The Honeycomb Grill

    Great improvement to the front end! Honeycomb grill is on my wishlist but I can't decide between the gloss black or chrome surround to go on a midnight blue car... leaning towards the chrome surround currently...

    Audi A5 Convertible - Which Engine

    Personally I'd vote for the 3.0tdi. Recently bought a 14 plate myself after test driving the S5 and preferring the power delivery of the tdi, to me the tdi felt quicker and can easily be remapped for a significant power increase. Also the 3.0tdi (unlike the 2.0tdi) doesn't really sound like a...
