Probably forgot a few bits, but I think that's it for now, oh, retro fit ADS, inc button to switch set up via MMI. Info & part numbers required.
Knew I'd forgot something, paintwork prep'd for Ceramic coating.
And so It begins
Thought you'd have a list for me by now Chop, disappointed in you mate, lol
Oh I have you've made a cracking start though mate
We going black rings on the front ?
Black s5 badge for front ?
I like that grill or you gona go RS ?
And we need to talk rear spoiler
Your on the case here chop. John, you best get some overtime sorted to pay for all this. x
No black rings on the front, tried it before and wasn't to keen on it.
Looked for the black S5 front grille badge on ebay, couldn't find one, a link to one would be appreciated. Not going RS Grille, I like the Black Ed. one, and it's easier to keep clean.
S5 has a slightly risen rear boot end lip, so don't think it needs a spoiler, although this may change.
Think Chop is taking the opportunity to spend my £'s for a change.
Think I'll need to rob a bank by the time I'm finished Sandra. Keep an eye on the local paper, lol.
Will do John, lol. x
It's just Like having a new project
Yeh black front badges are like hens teeth I couldn't find a single one for my grill Ended up making one
Yeh I like the black edition grill looks good
Yeh, think I'll have to mod my front badge to suit the rear S5 one too.
That spoiler has got me thinking, not.
Looks good XP, but I think it'll just be the front splitter for now.
Although, I may enquire more about the diffuser add on.
Very nice John it looks the part, all the best with it buddy! But we need more photos!lol
I am looking forward to seeing the mods you have planned.
Thanks Shaun, hope your well & life is good.
Yes, more pics are needed, weather been **** here and with work and all that I've not had much time, will try to get some more over the weekend.
Need to sell the S5 brakes etc to fund some of my planned mods, skint after buying the S5, lol.
How's your A5, you done much to it since we last spoke?
A small but pleasing change...................
Supercharger wing badges next, although, I am in two minds whether to leave the wings badgeless......
So, the sun was shining this morning, got a chance to fit my CR-15 front brace, also added some flyeye to fog lights, and wrapped lower part of front bumper Gloss Black.
Looking good mate, I vote badgeless wings, if there is a vote
Yes Chop, I'm swaying toward badgeless too.
Had the wing badges on my A5 and they looked the part, black & red, think the darker colour of the car helped, but against the Glazier White, mmm......
I've ordered black/red & silver/black ones, just to have a bit of choice.
Watch this space...........................
got your eye on any air filters yet ?
yeh the black and red might go nice against the white, i had a couple different ones on and off before i stuck with none
Yes Chop I've been looking, ECS, Carbonio, Revo, Injen & CTS, prefer to get one that has that air filter inclosed i.e. CTS etc.
Need to free up some funds by selling the Mods from the A5 though, so who knows when I'll be changing it, maybe Santa will help.
Think, if any, the black/red combo will be the way to go, but I'm liking the clean look of the white without the wing badges, we'll see. I'm considering taking off the Gloss black wrap I put on the front bumper yesterday because it breaks up the clean white look, but will wait till diffuser is fitted, it maybe ok with that on.
Next job is getting my auto folding mirrors fitted, the covers are at mates paint shop just now, going for same colour as the car.
If funds are short then don't do any air intake mods yet. There will be no difference to performance without a remap and negligible difference to engine sound.
I'd agree of the performance front but not on the sound, mine screams after fitting the CTS kit where as before you could hardly hear the supercharger
It's strange because I did not notice much of a change in noise after my tune. I can hear the supercharger a bit more, but only a bit. I guess it is possible that the supercharger on the CREC engine is quieter, and maybe my intake mods too - MRC fit an 034 pipe and uprated filter, but retain the OE airbox with an extra air hole.
BTW I'm not complaining - I have no desire to make my car louder.
Yeh, I been doing a lot of googling on different intake benefits, and realise that a stage1/2 is needed to see any power gains. A slightly louder whine from the SC would be nice though, for now. At least I'll not have to shell out for an intake when I get the remap.
decisions, decisions, decisions.
Oh, I never seen the 034 intake pipe, I'm off to google it.
Watched a couple of youtube vids with CTS intake, sounded good, but I don't think they weren't on CREC engine.
I'll have another search/google.
The difference in noise is dictated by how enclosed the filter is.
The ones without a top on the filter scream more (like Chops & mine) the MRC is much quieter because it is still fully enclosed
Yeh I can't comment on that engine type only what I noticed on My 2009 could be the different intake pipe and the cts is an open come which I'm sure will make a big difference too the sound getting out
Probably will be getting the Revo Intake, as I'm thinking of going down the Revo remap route, so this should match nicely.
Not done much with the S5 lately, just been enjoying it for what it is, a beast...............
But after much deliberation, I have ordered the CTS Intake, youtube to blame, sounds great!
EBC Red Stuff front & rear pads waiting to be fitted, yeh no more brake dust.
Oh, nearly forgot, rear diffuser has been painted Gloss black, liking the difference this mod makes to the rear of the car.
Pics to follow, when the ****** rain stops, had to fit it with the rain lashing down.
Cars going in for some minor things to be sorted under warranty on Monday, so it'll be interesting to see what courtesy car I get, R8 maybe.
Nice choice with the CTS mate you'll love it, this is what it sounds like on mine
Time to hear that charger scream
Sounds great Chop, I'll need to find myself an underpass or tunnel to give it some serious beans.
Wish it was here, I'd even fit it in the pouring rain just to give it a burst.
Don't know ( care ) what the Mrs will think of it though.............
she'll love it
You'll hear it loads mate mine was much louder until I messed with my exhaust which drowns it out a bit now
Well is she doesn't, there's always public transport, can't be doing with listening to her whining, and drowning out the Supercharger.
