I have been on these forums for a few years after owning a B7 A4 Convertible for a few years.
Last 18 months I've had a VW Golf GTD & Ford Focus Tdi (work).

Now looking at going back to the Audi and looking at A5 Convertible. I am not doing the miles so unless no DPF issue I will need a petrol model. Automatic is my desire too as the Focus is manual and boy do I miss auto! :)

Has all the drinking oil issues and oil pressure been sorted on the A5's? Or is that still the same kind of issues?
I have £10k to play with.

Thanks in advance.
 
Mine is on Autotrader. 85k miles with full Audi History. And, the oil consumption issue was done by Audi under warranty two years ago. I have the invoice for the work. It has all the right options, plus a set of genuine RS5 alloys I added. I still have the originals too. PM me if your interested. I’ve not had it long, just purchased for some summer fun, and now I’m going to buy an S5 as I miss my old one!

Hi mate drop me a PM.

Stick to the 2.0 engine with the oil issue resolved , do a stage one remap . down pipe if you like
a bit more noise and you're on your way .
I had an SL 55 AMG with over 500hp prior to the A5 2.0 .
I dont know what gearbox you guys get in the UK , but I have the 7 speed S tronic and it's great
Trust me i barely see the difference . Bar the noise the AMG made .
Also a huge difference in fuel consumption :)

just bought a 2015 A5 special edition plus convertible and love it its a 2.0 tdi auto

@Firas Khalife - what down pipe are you referring to?
 
@John_A5
the pipe that goes from the turbo down to the exhaust .
It's a sport pipe without the catalyser .
It gives you a better exhaust sound , more power , less restriction .
Down pipes work better with a remap and sport filter .
