    Squeak/Rattle

    The A5 series suffer from a lot of squeeks typically in the cabin. Are you sure its not coming from inside? Normal squeeks are the plastic trim in and around the vents, mmi and speed/rev. Can stuff small cotton pieces there to even it out. Also rear pillars squeek sometimes.

    Water repellent products

    I use Soft99 Suffo Coat for dark cars. incredible product. Water repellant is amazing on this one, never seen a wax this good and its mainly used for boats to start with. Washing the car is so much easier now as Everything pretty much comes off from just using the high pressure washer.

    Lowering my A5 SB 35mm.

    I was quoted 600p to get my H&R springs fitted? I last paid 150p or so on my A3. Is it alot harder to fit on the a5 Quattro? Seems a bit steep to have springs fitted..

    Yeah been thinking about removing the chrome but not so sure anymore, I will have to think about it, I will do the fog lights to start with! But the silver around the windows kinda makes it stand out. Will see in the future!

    Lowering my A5 SB 35mm.

    Cheers. link works for me no problem. Perfect easter vacation to spend in the garage. You wont have a problem at all with the 20x10 on the A5. I run 10,5 with ET38 and its going to sit just right with the drop. Wrap them in 275 I would say, 30 profile-

    Summer season detailing outside (tips for eliminating the sun)

    I took the time this Saturday to detail the car as it was cloudy all day and perfect temperature. Started 8 am and finished around 7pm. Washed it as perfect as I could, wheel wells, under the car to remove any salt left. Clay bar was used, first time for me and I loved it. Rust particles from...

    I fixed it this weekend when I detailed the car. Sanded down to the steel so the rust was removed, it was only a bit on the top and used a rust converter/primer and then painted it. figured it will last until I sell the car this autum. Love Audi but too much Money to worry about paint...

    Found rust just before summer season..

    Really thought I would be spared but I have now found rust in my rear wheel well on my a5 from 2011. What to do now? Audi won't pay for a respray and before it spreads and I lose a lot of money do I sell or sand it down and paint for now? God damnit.
