When I was at the dealer yesterday they mentioned to me that the A5 1.8 TFSI 170ps is now open for orders.

It going to cost £26,190.00 inc VAT on the road but Xenon headlights with daytime running LEDs will NOT be standard on this car and will be a cost option at £775.00 inc VAT. :(

A few tech specs:-

1.8 TFSI
Engine output: 170ps = approx 167 bhp
Max torque: 250nm = approx 185lb/ft @ 1500 - 4800 rpm
0-62mph: 8.4 secs
Max speed: 140 mph

Consumption: Urban (28.5 mpg) / Extra Urban (51.4 mpg) / Combined (39.8 mpg) - These are good improvments over the old non FSI 1.8T engine. :)

Standard Wheels: 7.5J x 17 with 225/50/17 tyres

The 1.8TFSI engine is a fairly newish angine from Audi. I'm guessing it is the previous 1.8T with FSI technology added and probably a few other modifications.

My guess will be that when a re-map does become available, as I know of none yet available you will most likely get it to atleast 200bhp. Exhaust with a sports cat would probably add a further 15bhp in conjunction with the remap.

If you can't wait for a re-map you could always have a nitrous kit installed, but from what I know you wouldn't want it to add more than 25bhp to this engine with it only being a 4 cylinder - thats keeping it within a safe region where using nitrous wouldn't cause any damage to the engine.

With it being front wheel drive I wouldn'tgo past the 250bhp mark with it anyway. The extra power gets lost in wheel spin. Only thing its good for though is straight line speed. So if thats the end result your looking for, have someone fit either a Garett or KKK turbo. That combined with sports cat, exhaust, air filter, slightly bigger injectors (you will need these otherwise its easy to starve the engine of fuel and not get the power you want as more power required = more fuel required) oh and a remap to take advantage of all the new kit.

I would say all that including labour would roughly cost between £3 - £4k.
