    New a5 owner, just one question.

    I don’t mean to hijack your thread, but I have a similar issue. I got a 10 reg s5 at the weekend, with the same wire, but plugged in in the glove box. However, the wire seems to intermittently work with my iPhone: sometimes charges, sometimes acts as an Aux lead, but doesn’t do the full AMI...

    Charging a5 cabriolet battery

    Thanks desert storm, yes it seems better but I think is still charging, at a rate of 1.5, whatever that means?! I will take a look at that battery, but having spoken to a garage I trust a few weeks ago, he suggested having the car overnight for a battery drain test just to make sure there is no...

    Buying an S5

    Hi sorry to hijack the thread, but I have a flat spot when accelerating on my 09 a5 2.0t cab. Would the carbon clean referred to above help with this? Does anyone know? Thanks

    hi all, battery definitely needs replacing. After car has stood for nearly 3 weeks, the starter motor barely turns. I need to book car in next week for new battery, but need to get to work tomorrow so have borrowed a battery charger from a neighbour and located the charge terminals under the...

    A5 cabriolet power fold mirrors

    Hi All, Hoping someone can help on this one. My 09 a5 cabriolet has power fold mirrors, that fold in automatically when I lock the car, and open when I start the car. This morning, the mirrors would not open automatically. Nor would they open when I pressed the manual open button on the drivers...

    Start stop and battery

    Hi desert storm, yes my PR code is J0Z for battery, I just still wasn't 100% sure it wasn't AGM cos the PR decoder just said something like 520a (or something like that). Looks like I might not need an expensive battery then.....I trusted the mechanic I asked, I suspect once he realised it...

    Start stop and battery

    Hi Desert storm, I had a look at the battery and it does not obviously state AGM on the top. Took a photo of the serial numbers etc, looked online for the part and that suggests its not an AGM battery either? Beginning to think my car is not start-stop, and I don't need an AGM battery!?

    Start stop and battery

    Dippy, not sure, maybe that's it, it can't be disabled? I checked user manual this morning and couldn't find any reference to start-stop. But I have the gear change guidance thing, which I thought was part of yen start stop system? Desertstorm, thanks for the comprehensive reply. I rang an Audi...

    Start stop and battery

    Thanks Dippy. I managed to get a 2009 pdf of the a5 brochure, and its states that all models have automatic start-stop. I can't see any button that looks like that though :-(

    Start stop and battery

    hi all, I've had a 2009 a5 cabriolet 2.0t petrol for about 4 months now. It has never start-stopped, nor does there appear to be any button to activate/deactivate any start-stop system? When I turn ignition off, I get a message:"weak battery. Turn off or system will shut down after 3 minutes"...

    A5 cab 2009 correct exhaust

    Hi vagcabby, thanks for that! Away on holiday at the moment so struggling to sort anything, but my tips are so black I was going to order some chrome ones! Had a quick skim through some of that thread, and I am unsure how things have moved on from the start of the thread? Is the advice for...

    A5 cab 2009 correct exhaust

    Thanks both of you, that puts my mind at ease! Dr Eskimo, you're just showing off ;-) ( I don't blame you though :--)) Any recommendations for a decent exhaust that sounds a bit meatier? I'm after something similar to the standard V6 TT exhaust, rumbly while cruising and shouty when pushing on?

    A5 cab 2009 correct exhaust

    Hi all, hoping the collective knowledge on here can help? I should be picking up my new car on Friday, a 2009 a5 cab 2.0tfsi s line. Question is: what should the exhaust look like? It has a single pipe at each side, but reading various things online makes me think it should be twin pipes on the...

    Heated seat (cheap option) B6 Cab

    Hi All, I was wondering if anyone had retro fitted one of the cheap amazon heated seats to their A4 Cab? Link below, hopefully working? They appear to slide into the seat under the leather covering, and I guess they can be attached to the wiring under the seat for power? I wouldn't expect to...

    Cabriolet window problem

    So am I right in saying that a snapped window regulator cable wouldn't allow the glass to just slide up and down like mine is doing?

    Cabriolet window problem

    Hi all, please help! Wound the passenger front window down today and heard a "clunk", after which the window wouldn't go back up! Managed to lift the window back to the top by hand, but it keeps dropping again, and if someone wanted to get into the car, they could just push the window down! I...
