Yh 19" Rotors colour match really goes well just not looking forward to when needs tyres, looking at RS5 style front grills too,

1st 2 door car I've had in 25 years & love big cars so perfect, kids grown up so who needs them back seats?

Is high mileage but with full dealer service history & fully loaded still looks like a 40k car for fraction of the price when get private reg back on.

Going to do the brake calipers gloss black with S-Line graphics on at the weekend to set the wheels off

Full service history was from Nottingham Audi if anyone knows the car? & they sent me a full report of all work & service it's had.

It has the 1st MMI I think with controls in centre console in front of gear stick, any one know if it's upgradeable via software update?

There are some big MMI update threads around. Do the check to make sure you find the right version you have (probably HNav looking at interior).

Then depending on what version it is on you'll have a bunch of firmware updates to do then can drop the latest 2016 maps on. Takes ages to do the maps, and a chunky download too. Have a 32GB SD card handy.

You'll need VCDS/Vagcom to clear some codes to make it perfect and put the right SW version marker in. See Adrian's excellent instructions at the start of the thread -- read that a few times before starting.

I wish I could get that car in the US, it looks great, and it's 3.0 TDi!

I have one suggestion for you, take the key ring off the Audi key. That way they don't rub on the dash when you hit a bump or go in or out of a driveway.

Without wishing to sound too "girly", I love what you've done with your brakes! The raw alloy always looks so agricultural on a prestige bit of kit like the A5.

Lovely looking ride, you should be proud :-)

Have you thought of a flat-bottom steering wheel at all? That would set that driver area off nicely imo...

How much was the MMI update CDs?

I would love the ipod/phone update + TV.

Also is it actually possible to have the Audi park plus showing on the screen!?

also got my brake stickers as I'm planning to do the same as you!

Awesome idea to do the calipers black. It was suggested to me to get them done, but I have a dark grey A5 and want it to look nice and not overly sporty. I'm not 20 :P
So I didn't want it to be a bright colour, but never thought about getting them to do them in glossy black! So when I decide on my new alloys, I'll know what to get the calipers done with as well.

Nice sunny day so had a machine polish after a clay bar, got rid of any swirls & paint so smooth told you I was ocd lol 😁
Just not happy with the wheels, few chips & scuffs I want them 100% with 4 new tyres soon can get them powder coated local but won't have the diamond cut edge which I think makes them stand out
