Dear everyone,

i just signed up to the forum, I recently bought a 2012 Rs5 and could not feel satisfied about it's performance, after getting slapped by my friends 2010 R8 V10. I researched everywhere for the kits and could not find reputable brands kits such as APR and Abt. I'm aware that these guys don't produce kits anymore.After doing a little research All I found was PES Supercharger kit, some people complain about Gearbox Change per 25K Kilometers or replacement of the whole engine. It is really sad that there are lacking choices for this beautiful engine, strangely enough there are plenty of more options for S5 V8 Engine. Any thoughts about this? Do you guys think it's worth it? Any experiences?
Would like to hear from you all

The only one I've heard about in Sydney Australia has the engine sitting in a shop that had to be replaced after the supercharger fit...

Not a good story in the end. Must be some reason that nobody makes a reliable kit for them.

Aeh mate welcome on board and lets see some photos please. Re your question I dont know, but I think that trying to keep up with a V10 R8 is er well, better trade in your car for a fighter jet to be honest!!!! There are more kits available for the S5 simply because the S5 is in a lower state of tune so can be safely tuned, your car is far more "stressed" so you would be mad to tune your car, she would become unreliable.
