Lovely mate! Congrats!
Looks very familiar, although yours is a bit smarter than my old A5
Saying that my old car used to have much nicer looking exhaust tips
Thanks mate, I absolutely love it!
Yeah I know
They were awful.. I've cleaned them up with some wire wool and autosol, but they're still not perfect so they'll be getting replaced

Aahhhhhh......I'll let you off then
Not wishing to piss on ones bonfire, but have you looked into the oil consumption issues that unfortunately plague the pre-FL 2.0TFSI? Thankfully now its just a minor inconvenience, but something to look out for and familiarise yourself with, should the problem ever occur...
2.0 TFSI Oil consumption problem - summary and FAQ
It's on the list of many things to do haha..
Yeah I have, I read up on this before collecting the car, and the oil level on mine has gone from full to zero(on the MMI) in about 550 miles, so I've called Audi and got it booked in for the test on the 8th, I'm just hoping they'll pay out for it and I won't have to

Awesome! Yea if it's got FASH and not been tinkered with, you should have no troubles at all. Make sure they don't try and pull a fast one on you and let them know your paying diddly squat to fix their mistake!
Mine was all dandy after the fix for the 10/15k miles I drove it before selling it on. Never even went down one notch on the MMI.
Welcome aboard, Mrw. That's a good looking car you've got yourself. Be merciless with Audi over the oil consumption. The order of the day is ANB - Accept No Bullshit!
Hi mate how did it cost to get all the bulbs changed to LED and have the 6k headlights?
Its VERY low!! Are you having problems with that? I just bought H&R 25mm lowering springs going on with 19" wheels.
Those Y spoke alloys you have really suit the car, I wouldn't bother changing them!
Looks good though, keep posting updates
What a nice ride Mrw2311.......love the tail lights especially...unfortunately in that regard I reside in the U.S.....a country that's been obsessed and remains obsessed with the color Amber since the 1960's. Uncle Sugar also for some reason seems to have an unhealthy disdain for certain kinds of trailing or "chasing" LED turn signal lights. And that is really too bad because you guys across the pond and elsewhere truly "own" the very best of the best when it comes to elegant and just plain awesome automotive lighting....especially in the Audi arena. Do your turn signals "trail" or 'chase" like some of the euro versions do? That is just such an elegantly simple touch that I really wish my Audi's had.
Your car really shines after that wash.....the Audi 5 series just might have the nicest curves of any car ever made....but then we all know that...that's why we bought them.
Your wheels are really nice too....I'm wondering what's not to like about them? I'll probably get rung up real hard for this one but I would Flexidip those wheels in a minute (with maybe 10 good coats when it warms up a bit this spring or early summer) .....maybe a black \ graphite mix.....and that just might look pretty freaking nice as long as you stay away from curbs. If you don't like it peel it off...no harm no foul. But I'd put those wheels on my 5 with no regret at all. I'm just too paranoid about these Pittsburgh city curbs to shell out a small fortune on aftermarket wheels. So I go "ghetto" and every couple years clean them down to the alloy and then dip them. If done correctly it stays really nice for more than a couple years.....and I avoid the sheer anxiety that dinging up expensive aftermarket wheels would surely cause.....no matter HOW careful one is......at least in this town I live in......it is SO easy to scrape a curb or get nicked up by these narrow brick streets.
But for sure that's a nice curvaceous car you have.....I would have a bit of trouble from time to time with the steering wheel where yours is located though......my girlfriend is left handed....and rarely in the mood to be taught new tricks.
