I have been searching and searching for mods for the 2010 A5 2.0T and have only stumbled upon the APR ECU chip. Maybe the car is still too new?!

Anyone with some insight into exhaust (B&B, STaSIS, Miltek), fogs, etc. that will be available for this model in the near future?!

raskal83, how do you like your 2.0T?
Might get one in later this year.
Yeah, there seems like their are almost mods at all for it, except for APR's.

Still in the breaking in period, so really haven't been able to drive the car hard yet. But, I am completely satisfied with the car. I used to be a loyal BMW customer, but the looks of the A5 are unique and not as common in my area as the 3 series that every mom, dad and kid seem to have nowadays.

The only thing that you can say I have an "issue" with is that the car is just too quiet and doesn't give off the sound that a sports car should. Hopefully, more companies will make more aftermarket performance parts as this car should be highly modify-able.

Get a bluefin.

Cheap HP - not quite sure about the hp gains, but i was on the bumper of an S2000 (Stock but has got an HKS exhaust) from 40mph up to higher than you need to go, earlier today. Buddy of mine and he wasn't holding back!

Will definitely look into the bluefin as it looks like the best performance gain for the price. any other aftermarket parts out there for the 2.0T yet?

Some of the mods like STaSIS ARB should be immediately available. Exhaust might be too new, it should not take long though since there is a lot of discussion making the 2.0T exhaust into a dual exhaust.

It looks like the Bluefin is definitely the best bang for your buck. Both APR's chip and the Bluefin are approx $700 Canadian. With APR tuning you have to specifically match the mapping program to the different octane fuels available. I see no mention of that in the Bluefin info.

You can't run an engine map specific to 93/94 octane and then put in regular fuel, even APR says it could be quite harmful to the engine. Does the UK only have the higher grade fuel?

I have used APR in the past, and would highly recommend them. Their software not only provided better horsepower and torque, but improved the fuel effiency and reponsiveness of the motor.

Without any questions, the best software on the market today.

Does anyone have the APR upgrade on their 2010 2.0Turbo? If not, why? This appears to be a magnificent deal for HUGE increases?
There is a local installer near my house, and I'm thinking of doing it...thoughts?

I tried to get mine APR'd but for some reason the car won't accept the code. The same APR dealer did another A5 recently with no problem. :wall:

APR is still working on the files for the new ECU. They're working on 2010 A4 which has same ECU as A5 2.0T. No time frame yet... Mike said he'll let me know when its ready. Since I already pre-paid for it.. just a waiting game now...
