    Tyres for 18inch coke bottle alloys

    Just as an update for those wanting the 40 profile tyre, Michelin will be releasing the PS4S variant of this tyre very soon.. I have H&R springs on mine, so not sure whether it will be compatible. I suspect the PS4S will be better than the Mich super sports with 35 profile, as PS4S is allot...

    Bose Sound System

    Yes, it is worth it. I have had the standard system and the Bose is excellent! G Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Are you enjoying your new RS5?

    I did not like the DRC option and never specified it. In dynamic mode it picked up every tiny pimple on the road.. G Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Time to get back in an RS5

    I know this will be an unpopular remark, but I resisted doing the after market exhaust thing. The RS5 for me is a classy, fast GT car, with nothing to prove. Some of these after market exhausts sound terrible (pops and bangs)and just cheapen the brand IMHO. It has a 2.9 bi turbo, which is really...

    Time to get back in an RS5

    That looks nice, especially in that Audi exclusive paint. Seems to have all the right options. Similar interior to mine... check if the thermostat has been replaced under warranty, as mine has gone twice in 18k miles... expensive fix! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Time to get back in an RS5

    I suspect for that budget, you could get a Sport Edition version, which has most extras covered as standard.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    S1 Exhaust

    Get yourself on the S1 Facebook page for modifying questions. Only old farts like me keep the S1 standard it seems. Agree with VeeForce, in dynamic has just the right sound.. G Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Are you enjoying your new RS5?

    Sounds about right. Part of the reason why they don’t seem get big gains on remaps is due to the heat of that engine.. G Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    RS5 vs S5

    Your Missus is indeed very smart! RS5 is far more special than an S.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    S1 Original Tyres

    Congrats on the car!! Never heard of that tyre make, however you probably want a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sports, the Bridgestone and conti are ok, however the Michelin are another level of grip.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    2020 RS5

    What is with the new RS mode rev counters? I prefer my current circular rev counter rather than the 80’s version they are going for... From a looks perspective, need to see one in the flesh to pass full judgement..Rear looks like design cue from RS6/7, which I think is the worst part of the...

    Stolen S1

    Really sorry to hear. Looks like a lovely car. I know first had the inconvenience this causes you have my sympathy. Usually they prefer a 5 door, which can be used for criminal activity, so surprised.. makes me think about stepping security on mine.. G Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    B9 they came for it

    Yep, gave them the keys, was on the in- laws driveway ready to pick up my daughter.. just wanted them gone. They also tried to wrestle my mobile off me too. They never got caught, ended crashing the car into a skip.. unfortunately was pretty spooked for many months after... Sent from my iPhone...

    B9 they came for it

    Op - sorry to hear this. You have my sympathy, can be a frightening situation... I had a Golf R taken from me in broad daylight some three years back. Two hooded masked individuals with weapons, sprung from nowhere confronted me for the keys. It does sometimes feel you cannot have anything...

    Cooling fans always running

    Looks like quite a few RS4/5 owners have had this problem. Looks to be a matter of time before they maybe introduce a recall on the Thermostats.. G Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
