I've decided to come back to audi ownership, I'm going to pick up a 2009, S5 4.2 automatic on Saturday.
It's done 83k miles, and has full service history.
What should I be in the lookout for?
Thanks in advance.
Scanned with ODB and I got just one fault P0406
I cleared the fault and the eml light cleared after driving around, the problem is still there but the eml light hasn't come back on.
I believe the new egr unit I have is cheap and doesn't work properly
I just replaced my EGR valve, upon going out for a test drive, the car stutters/hesitates at low revs. Anything below 2k and it'll hesitate upon gentle acceleration. If I plant my foot it sometimes stutters and sometimes doesn't. Turbo boosts perfectly fine, and there is minimal...
Thanks for the Input guys,
I've ordered some radio pins and a **** load of door clips, I'll take everything apart and check for loose/broken wires.
Any idea how to pull the rubber boot apart in the door? I was pulling at that and I think that's what broke the passenger side speaker all...
My Mrs '08 plate A3 is having a strange radio problem, at the front only the two tweeters work and the rear speakers don't work at all.
When she turns the volume up the front lower speakers start working, but then stop on lower volumes, after having a poke around in the lower A pillar...
Thank you, that is very very interesting, I had a new clutch and DMF fitted about a year ago, recently I have noticed that the release bearing is really squeaky. I wouldn't have thought about the clutch reference this. Might explain why mine is intermittent.
I'm starting to think my new tyres/wheels aren't balanced properly.
I can't seem to find any problem other than one side has Cooper grease in between the hub and disc and one side doesn't. Could this be causing fairly aggressive vibration between 50-70mph?
Following for interest,
Really looking into getting a S5, Mpg don't bother me as I won't need to daily it.
What're the common stuff to look out for when at a dealership, ones in my price range are like 70k-100k miles
Hi all, bit late but I've finally managed to get a few hours to spend to have a look at this.
Firstly all the tyres look fine, the wheels look straight and I can't see any cracks or signs of a buckle, it doesn't look like any weights have fallen off the wheels either.
The brake discs look and...
Haven't had a chance to have a look yet ,but I've noticed on my drive home just now. You can feel the vibration through the gearstick, and the brakes are smooth and responsive. I did some loops on full lock in a car park and I couldn't hear anything.
Hi all, once again more problems with the B7...
Main thing is that I've noticed at speed 60-70mph the steering wheel shakes slightly and gets worse the faster I go, at first this was the tyres, two had developed bulges, I got them replaced and the tracking done too as it was out.
