Just Bought My Dream S5

Picked up my S5 V8 yesterday, unbelievable car, love it, it's got 40k miles, good amount of optional extras, just a couple of questions, I'm after a "V" because one has fallen off on the side panel where it says "V8", also, wouldn't mind a key fob cover but all the ones I see are for the flip-key version, anybody shed any light on these 2 things ?

Thanks

I'm going to put some pics up very shortly mate, only trouble is its parked on drive at minute and without going across neighbours gardens I can't get a good, full car pic !

It's a stunning car though, so happy with it, im the same as you, my dream car, I just thought I'd go for it and get one, needless to say I don't regret it, brings a huge smile to my face every time I put the key in and hear that discreet growl

Welcome Jack my good man.

Would love to have a go in a V8! A member on here bought an RS5 grill off me for his V8 (sadly sold it now ) and it doesn't half sound good. Bet its an occasion every time you get in

I've just perfected getting my S5 to 'pop' going from 1st to second using the paddle shifts...bet its not close to the V8

Check out Cuppa's, Alomst50, Spinner and a couple of other members threads, who all have V8 with a supercharger installed. Completely nuts what they can achieve!

Hey man, ye I knew a lad with a v8 and he took me out in it months ago, every time he drove it it just turned heads, I thought, one day I'll get one, so I'm really happy to finally have one, that's right it is an occasion for me at least every time I drive it, really nice car

So I'm guessing you got a v6 then ? Thanks for mentioning those guys names I'll check their cars out, if I had the money I'd look into a supercharger !! But I'm happy just having the car for now haha

Welcome aboard, Jack. Love the burble of that V8. A guy down the road has one, and it's a joy hearing it fire up in the morning. +1 on Doc's list of build threads, particularly Cuppa's (my personal fave).

It is such a nice burble, it's not too aggressive it's really discreet with just the right amount of aggression, sounds beautiful, turns heads all day long ! I'm hoping to get some pics up today if anybody is interested

Haha...yea you are lucky Jack..the forum has been a bit quiet lately. Usually the first 15 posts will be members with torches and pitchforks chanting for pictures....
