    Will the Black Edition A5 grille fit the S5?

    I bought it off eBay from someone selling loads of Audi parts either a dealer or a wholesaler, not sure. Paid about £450. My local Audi dealer quoted £712+Vat (I think) to get it through them.

    Will the Black Edition A5 grille fit the S5?

    Will that fit a UK spec car? The numberplate area looks quite different from all the other ones I’ve seen. If it’s any help the part number for mine is 8W6.853.651.AP

    Fitting front parking sensors 2017 S5

    I ended up just cutting two lines into the plastic so the little “flap” could flex down just enough to let the parking sensor clip in. Seems to have worked fine since then although the spray paint has begun to chip off the brackets.

    A5 B9.5 puddle lights

    Highly recommend Robin’s kits. Used one to retrofit warning/puddle lights and footwell lights in my A3. Really well made and was pretty easy to fit.

    s5 purchase advice

    Out of curiosity what dealer is it that’s trying to pass that off as standard? If they’re lying about something so painfully obvious I wouldn’t trust a single thing they’ve said. Especially on a car now out of its standard warranty.

    Dechrome - price

    I paid £480 for the Front bumper, door handles, window trim, rear bumper and diffuser. They said they could have a go at doing the grille for £70 but it would probably peel off as it’s quite intricate. In the end I just bought a genuine black edition S5 grille. Another place quoted £440+Vat...

    Yeah it was just the 3 dash speakers so far but I’ll be upgrading the rest at a later date. I’m not sure if the price fluctuates based on availability or shipping costs but I paid £175.

    Audi Sound System Speaker Upgrade

    I did this upgrade to my S5 today and it’s just a case of popping the speaker grilles off, undoing two bolts per speaker and that’s it. Plug and play nothing else needed

    Yeah I was amazed too, got the notification at 4:30pm is had been sent and at 8:40am the next day the postman arrived. I managed to fit it last night and I’m honestly blown away by the difference. I didn’t think the change would be as noticeable as it is

    I created one just to message him initially but then he replied by email. I can drop him a message if you like and ask if he’s happy with me private messaging people his email? (I’m planning on creating another thread once I’ve done it as a bit of a guide/review as I don’t want to take over...

    What kind of driving are you doing? My average MPG is 24, my tyres lasted about 8k miles and when I went for a service a few months ago at 21k they told me my disks needed replacing soon. Other than that I completely agree with everything you’ve said about the car

    RS Grille on s5

    Personally I take that as if you got it done, then had a crash they wouldn’t cover the replacement cost. I’m no expert, but if it was something that would invalidate your policy I don’t think they would be so vague about it.

    RS Grille on s5

    Or... don’t clarify. If they were ambiguous then plead ignorance if you infer it to mean they wouldn’t cover replacing the dechrome. What was their exact wording?

    RS Grille on s5

    By them saying they wouldn’t cover it does that mean they won’t cover the replacing the dechrome in the event of an accident or they wouldn’t cover you at all? Dechroming the window surrounds is essentially putting a sticker over them so I don’t get the logic of hiking the price up. People...

    RS Grille on s5

    Blackwater, so not that far from London depending on what part you’re in Edit: just checked the invoice and it was £105

    RS Grille on s5

    A local Audi specialist charged me £80 (ish) to swap the grille over so it’s not a particular expensive job

    Rear camera coding

    Is it under the parking sensor settings? I believe there is an option to lower the music when the parking sensors come on.
