Hi folks,

Just joined the forum.

I've got an Audi A5 (obviously) 2010 plate 2.0T petrol and I'm looking to make some cosmetic upgrades.

I've never modded a car so thought I'd tap into some of you guys knowledge.

I'd quite like to lower mine a bit - do you guys recommend a particular coilover kit please? Or if you know of a good, reliable option please let me know.

Any of you guys had your calipers sprayed? Mine actually have a bit of rust on them and don't do the imagine of the car any favours.

Not sure on the colour though - my car (pictured) is sort of a silver/grey colour. What do you guys reckon?

Also, any good upgrades you recommend cosmetic - or performance, I'd love to look at.

Not sure how good the 2.0 petrol 178 brake is for upgrades - heard it is a bit temperamental which is why I regularly change the oil on it and put good fuel in it.

I'm based in the UK.

Thanks for your time.
Bought mine Oct 2020... mine is the 2009 210BHP but the exterior looks identical :)

In terms of suspension I guess it depends on what level of comfort is acceptable to individual. I bought mine knowing all 4 shocks were shot as they were advisory on the MOT. I kept it stock and replaced with OEM SACH shocks and the ride has improved...the old 4 shocks were really bad as they would not bounce back.

In terms of calliper rust.. at 1st I was a bit shocked how rusty there were but it seems quite normal

I have replaced the manual gear knob as the original was polished and no grip left.

I would have liked the sports seats from the S-Line model but that's too much hassle :(

Welcome to the forum. Thats a nice looking car.

Cosmetics, you could fit dynamic wing mirror indicators. Pretty cheap an not too hard to install.

Honeycomb grills, you have to remove the bumper but makes such a difference, love how my car looks with it. View attachment 181903

Chrome delete the window surrounds, vinyl wrap, some wrapping tools and a lot of swearing..
Those wheels and grill really does transform the car :love:
