    A5 Black Edition Plus - The Mythos

    Got black badges on but removed the paddle shift extensions (for now) as one fell off.. I did have a feeling that they might.

    A5 Black Edition Plus - The Mythos

    Thanks @robtaylors Can anyone recommend a decent remapping place near East London? I was going to have Fastlane Styling in Romford do Stage 1 for £350 but kinda decided against it as they didn't use a dyno or anything like that? Thoughts?

    Dashcam advice please

    I went for the Garmin Mini Dash Cam. Like you, I wanted something that I'd forget I even had. Had a friend help me hardwire it and can't even see it from the driver's seat. App allows for a quick addition of a rear camera if needed. Will try to take some pics.

    A5 Black Edition Plus - The Mythos

    @EXSpartan36 thanks man! I was a bit unsure about the sportback as I liked the look of the coupe more but now I'm happy about it. The Plus makes it look really good! I fitted pedal shifter extensions. Wasnt sure about them or the red at first but I think they look really cool!

    A5 Black Edition Plus - The Mythos

    Thanks man! For one, it was harder to find, haha, with only about 11 Petrol in UK when I was looking. The main bits that stood out were some body changes, like the bumpers, spoiler and these alloys instead of the rotors. I do like all black everything. But other bits according to some guy...

    Went for a muffler delete yesterday. Sounds much better but have to now get used to it, specifically any droning.

    A5 Black Edition Plus - The Mythos

    Hi guys. Recently purchased A 2016 A5 Black Edition Plus and been making some modifications so I thought I'd make a small thread that hopefully not only helps me out but also inspire others. This is as it sits now, with recently added private plates on. Can you guess what G9 might stand for?

    A few A5 questions

    @JG51 AUD thanks man! Will look into it. @Macdoon Yeah slowly deciding against them. I dont think they'd be low enough for me and any lower will make it harder on bumps etc and don't want to keep worrying about them. Also worried about the stiffness! I've spoken to someone about doing a...

    A few A5 questions

    Hey guys, thanks for the replies! @JG51 AUD Cheers, will look into those spacers. Any brand anyone recommend or doesn't really matter? Cheers for the splitter too! @Swanny356 thanks, the BE+ seems to already have a nice boot lip so I'm happy with it as is but that looks nice @Macdoon Car...

    A few A5 questions

    Hey guys.. Long time member but haven't been active in a while. Used to own an A3 8P which I sold recently after upgrading to a 2016 A5 Black Edition Plus Still new to me and would like to make some changes and to ask some questions, so any help will be appreciated. Im thinking of adding some...

    What did you and your 8p do today? :)

    Gotcha! Well I will keep an eye out. The HIDs are from Xenon Bulbz and are quite reliable so hopefully I won't have to go through that. As for rears, my car lost the chance of being bought by a 'regular consumer'. If it needs to be sold, the audience would be made up of people that understand...

    What did you and your 8p do today? :)

    Thanks for the heads up Tim. I did hear something about that a while back. Is it just the rear or the front too that may get affected? Because I don't have to worry about the rear one:

    What did you and your 8p do today? :)

    Donny, thanks mate. It's the A3 8p 2006, 1.9 TDI. They're on JOM coilovers, probably as low as 60mm or so! Didn't get a proper reading. :) Other Changes made: Installed HID Kits (1600k Diamond White) and Sidelights. Changed grille to black honeycomb. Before (after HIDs went on): After:
