Since i had my little boy in October its been a bit of a struggle with the lack of boot space due to 4wd.
we have a static caravan that we go to most weekends, the older boy wanted to take his bike this weekend and there was just no room to get it in! Its breaking my heart but family comes first every time. Car is going back to standard on Thursday. Then i just have to decide what to buy, looking at SQ5's and have been offered 27k trade in for mine which doesn't seem to bad?

So if any body looking for stage2 parts will put a list up later. its a sad day


this is what is coming off if any body looking to buy parts

odd question but do you have your static caravan in West Yorkshire way? A guy who works with me knows I'm into my Audis and says there is regularly a S3 in this light blue thats on the site he lives on...

Sorry to read this but SQ5 is an epic motor and should tick all of the boxes.

Is the Milltek with resonator and valved ?

Yes it's valved. I hope so I really don't want to let it go!

I'm sure it will mate.

Is the system res or non res ?

I could be interested if you're looking to split from the downpipe as already have the sport cat Milltek DP. What tips do you have on it ?

You seen the new announced SQ5? Always been jealous of the US for having the SQ5 with the S5's Supercharged 3.0 V6, and finally they have ditched the diesel SQ5 in favour of the new turbocharged 3.0 V6 in the new S5

Ha! Yes fair point :p

Did you manage to get a good deal on the outgoing model? When I inquired the discounts were still very stingy! It's like they know SUVs are really popular....

Wow... Surprising how much having a kid changes your life..All for the good of course...lol
SQ5 will be a worthy successor to the S3..You might want to consider an RS6 avant that has 565 ltrs of space and on the plus side an awesome engine in the front to counterbalance all the stuff you are going to put in the back..lol
Good luck with whatever you decide on and as usual forum rules........ No pic no happen...:friends:

Shame to hear this dude - but the vultures are circling! If we can sort it, I'll have the sport cat DP either yours or Rob's.

Getting it tomorrow, i feel a little sad but it will make family life better least a can get the camping gear out now too smiles all round.
Will have another soon, kept looking at the rs6 but we want to move as well without selling the house we live in now and I couldn't do both so this is best for us. There will always be one winner and it won't be a car ha ha

Based near Bolton will get some pictures up in morning.
It will make life miles easier but it's a slow as a slug!!

I should have put if any body wants the car they have till tomorrow 26k is what they have give me against it I would take that.

It was a weird drive home having it back to stock!
