Looking at getting an S5 but scrolling through the ads a few seem to of been for sale for awhile and not high mileage or anything odd.
Are they hard to sell
Look an amazing car

Depends what year and variant you’re taking about. The B8 (2007-2011) Coupe was a 4.2 naturally aspirated V8. The Cab and Sportback were supercharged V6s. The B8.5 (2012-2016) Coupe then also took the 3.0 supercharged V6 as well to meet emission requirements.

They sell, but probably not the most popular in terms of market share. Big engine, 20MPG average and 2 door coupe isn’t the most practical car...!

But I agree. Still think the B8.5 is one of the best looking cars Audi makes. Not a fan of the new B9 one personally.

I like the new ones and look a lot more roomy inside but seems a big jump in price
Both nice cars though

The 3l can be tuned to beyond what an RS5 is capable of. And you're asking whether to buy?

I take it all back
Contacted 3 different Audi garages advertising on the Audi website only to be told all 3 sold
Why don’t they update it
So annoying

Agreed, the 8p S3 I had was an all-round great car (to me) - never missed a beat but the S5 SB now takes its place as the best car I've owned. I'm hopeful it'll be even better when I get the stage 1+ done in next week or so, just waiting on intake to arrive before getting booked up :)

Enjoy the new motor Dave

My lad is already trying to get me to do that and sending links for exhausts
