Update: Driven the coupe today, no brainer for me, the difference in handling power/weight was completely apparent.
thanks for all your help, I will be happily joining you as A5 owners in the coming days.
LOL. What's wrong with the 19-inch factory wheels guys?
I like them. Not saying there aren't better looking wheels out there, but still the factory ones are quite good looking.
Interesting debate re cab and coupe. I have a coupe and here in Italy where it gets very 'ot indeed then the cab could seem a good buy. But well not really, cos the irony is that while in spring and autumn it is great, as soon as things get hot then you have to keep it closed and fire up the aircon........so you may as well have the coupe cos the security aspect plus lower weight etc etc all play in your favour. I had an A4 cab for a couple of months and while it was fun and quite lively (2.0 FSI 200 horses) it felt really heavy so had to be revved hard. I prefer my 265 horse coupe (3.2FSI) cos its a lazy beast but will fly if revved......
yep. 200kg heavier, probably less aerodynamic with the roof down, so the cab will be slower and use more fuel. And as good as it is compared to others yes it can be a bit floppy in extreme circumstances. And as simon says (that might be a good game....) they are actually rubbish top down when it gets really hot and sunny. or if its raining.
but that's not the point is it...when everything is right its a sublime experience driving roofless..... and thank goodness its not all about practicality or we would all be in avensis's..........................
So am I flattered to be er quoted or mentioned by Rackingham???? Yesssss not arf!!! Thanks.
And although I loved the few times I managed to get the family into the A4 cab it was REALLY squeezed in the back and the boot space with the hood down was er minimal......enjoy your new motor!!!
