Currently have standard discs, and put the basic brembo pads on from GSF. first couple of hard stops at 100mph+ speeds has warped the discs, vibrates when braking hard at anything above about 70 now...

    B8 S5 FBSW (flat bottom steering wheel)

    Hi guys, I have a pre-facelift S5 (2011), and I want to upgrade to a FBSW. Just wondering what part numbers I want to be looking out for? Searching on eBay produces a few different types, some with more buttons than mine currently has, so wanna make sure I get a compatible one. Only...

    Intercooler radiator

    Must admit, reading all that and having a think, just a bigger surface area should suffice. Air is being forced over the heat exchanger by a fan anyway...

    Intercooler radiator

    From reading around I've come to the conclusion it's not needed for most tunes (up to, say, 480hp). I'm upgrading mine, probably to the Forge one too. But mainly for peace of mind / reliability in keeping temperatures down. If you're tuning further then I guess you'll need the upgrade, but then...

    Thanks for the reply Sandra. Unfortunately the response was that the OEM covers are for indoor use only.

    S5 remap & parts recommendations (B8 3.0 V6T)

    Are all the pulleys fluid dampened, even OEM? What are the consquences of a pulley failure? I'll be rarely red-lining it, and won't be using single-mass flywheel, so hopefully such vibrations would be kept to a minimum anyway - presuming I've understood the reasoning behind having a dampened...

    S5 remap & parts recommendations (B8 3.0 V6T)

    Cheers again chaps. Comparing APR and MRC I'm leaning towards MRC. Have spoke to Ben there, and will likely go for the TCU upgrade too. (Not spoke to Unicorn yet) Just need to decide which filter to go for (MRC's own, or splash out on a "nicer looking" one from the likes of Luft-Tecknik), and...

    S5 remap & parts recommendations (B8 3.0 V6T)

    Thanks for the info guys! Sounds like I'll just do the crank pulley then, stick with stock exhaust, but I'll still upgrade the 'cooler. Plus an intake obviously. Will be more than happy with 450+ hp. So can't see the extra expense of full exhaust or the v-damper in my case. Are the TCU maps...

    S5 remap & parts recommendations (B8 3.0 V6T)

    Thanks for the reply Dippy. I'm happy with the OEM exhaust sound, my boy-racer days are well behind me - so that'll certainly save a few quid! Will defo go stage 2. Happy to go with the damped pulleys too, I also like being on the safe side! Will doing both pulleys not achieve anything over...

    S5 remap & parts recommendations (B8 3.0 V6T)

    Thanks for the detailed reply. Intake-wise I'm leaning towards this, mainly due to how nice it looks! https://www.ecstuning.com/b-ecs-parts/kohlefaser-luft-technik-intake-system/000931ecs01kt/

    S5 remap & parts recommendations (B8 3.0 V6T)

    Hi guys, Recently bought a 2011 pre-facelift S5 sportback (V6T) and making a bit of a shopping list. Previously had an 8P S3 "stage 2+" 365/391 (mapped by R-Tech) so looking to make similar gains with the S5. Firstly, any recommendations on who to get for the remap - seems to be a choice...

    Buying an S5 (3.0 V6) - what options would you have?

    Well the next one I’m viewing has an aftermarket alpine system installed, touch screen etc. Does that negate the usual downsides to the lower spec MMI? Or is there more to it... For info it’s this one: https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201807098252068

    Buying an S5 (3.0 V6) - what options would you have?

    Thanks for all the info guys. It’s genujnely helping! Going to view one that has both drive select and damper control. I’ve noticed it doesn’t have the MMI buttons below the gear lever. Some do and some have them above the HVAC controls. Is this just a difference between ones with centre...

    Buying an S5 (3.0 V6) - what options would you have?

    thanks for the reply. how can I tell if it has the sports diff?? One I'm viewing tomorrow has dash buttons for Comfort/Dynamic/Individual, which I'd assume is damper control? I'm gunna be tuning anyway - so expecting to spend a few quid!! Saying that, it's probably only the flat bottom...

    Buying an S5 (3.0 V6) - what options would you have?

    Hi Guys, in the market for an S5, 5-door so looking at like a 10/60 plate. Just wondering what options worth having were available from new - and which of those could be retrofitted. EG would want FBSW, which most don't seem to have - but are an easy upgrade. Thanks in advance.
