Hi folks. I've been a ling time member since looking for an Audi A4 some years ago which fell through as the wife changed her mind (again). Recently she moved out and started her own life with someone else, but that's a really long story and not quite relevant here. What is relevant is she took the car with her... So, now I have the need for another car and I've been looking at either an A5 or Q5. I'd like the A5, but the Q5 is more practical and could be used if my other works vehicle (Skoda Yeti) is off the road for any reason. Budget is going to be up to £10k, and age / plate will have to be 2007 - 2011 ish. Also, only considering the 3.0ltr TDI engine, not petrol or 2.0ltr TDI. The Q5 is only automatic but the A5 could be had in a manual which would be preferred I guess. Which sort of brings me to the main point of the post. Sellers invariably have no idea which auto gearbox is in the car they're selling, and list it as simply Tiptronic. I presumed (possibly incorrectly) that Tiptronic simply means you can manual shift the auto box, and doesn't relate to the actual type of auto box fitted. Some (all the Q5's apparently) are listed as S Tronic which I know to be the 7 speed DSG box, but in the years I'm interested in can anyone shed any light as to which other gearboxes were fitted? Cheers in advance.
