Not sure why the difference but I just paid my vehicle tax and it was £250.
I have never cared much about fuel efficiency (I bought an S5...) but I seem to get around 250-300 miles out of about 50 litres.
I don't know what mpg is. Its probably one of those terms used by people who measure their height in feet and their weight in rocks. I was born in the 60's so I'm a child of metrication. These older people just love to hang onto their imperial measurements.
EDIT: Yes I quoted miles. But that's because those same people refused to change the signs to km.
Over the last 7k miles my average has been 23 mpg. Will do 30-35mpg on a steady motorway cruise or 15mpg on a spirited run with lots of welly. I usually get 250-300 miles to a tank. Mine's custom mapped to 450 bhp btw.
Is that just a remap? Any pulley upgrades, other mods?
This is what is attracting me to the S5! Wanting more than 310bhp now. <a href="https://www.a5oc.com/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" >:-)</a> And you can't beat the noise of petrol explosions!
I'm in a little town called Ripley. You'd be more than welcome to have a drive if you are ever down this way.
The S5 definitely has more or a sporty feel and does make a lovely sound.
If youíre looking at b8/b8.5 then I also highly recommend getting an MRC stage 2 tune (or similar). The difference is huge especially for the relatively reasonable cost. Though insurance company choices become a bit more limited as a change from 333 to near 500 is a bit more than most companies will touch.
But if your reason for changing is to get more then this adds a lot more!

My mate sold his v8 S4 on the 27th December 2018 and bought a 2013 A5 3.0 tdi. Nice car and goes ok with 245 bhp std. We went up the M69 2 weeks ago and he drove mine. When we got back he said I should have got an S5.
He is now selling his A5 to get a B8.5 S5.
The tunability of the S5 is also another attraction!!
I know about 450bhp is achievable with just a map, is 500 with pulleys? I know the APR hypercharger throttle body gets you over 500, with dual pulleys and using high octane juice near 550bhp is achievable
