Hi Gents, I fitted my Cruise Control yesterday and thought i would wright up my experience. and to help others do it. After finding the correct stalks and trim (make sure you have the correct style stalks) Also note that you have to make sure you have the correct one it has to match you're...
I bought a set of used stalks off ebay (just make sure they're for an a5 coupe or a4 saloon). My car has MFSW so the steering column ECU was OK to use.
Rotate steering wheel to allow access to air bag bolts.
Remove Airbag (2 torx bolts).
Remove upper steering column cowling, just clipped on.
Remove lower steering column cowling, 2 torx screws at top, 1 underneath.
Unplug steering column ecu, remove switches, ecu and steering angle sensor (make sure not to turn this, I put a bit of tape on it to hold it in position), 1x 5mm allen screw.
Swap the ECU and steering sensor to replacement stalks.
Fit back to steering column.
Fit lower cowling (I modified mine for larger cut out, or buy a replacement).
Fitting is reverse of removal.
Connect VCDS, activate Cruise Control in Steering Wheel ECU then Engine ECU using Long Coding.

I have a 2018 A5 coupe (B9) and am thinking of changing / painting the front & rear 4 rings from chrome to black. The rear ones obviously just need a little heat and thread to remove. I looked at the front and see they are located with little clips. Is it just a case of prising them out or do I...

Hi all my first post. Recently purchased 2018 s-line A5 Coupe 2.0 TFSI 252hp on finance.
I’m a complete novice at mods and stuff... so was hoping someone could shed some light on what I was hoping to achieve...
Basically want the car to sound a little louder and get some gurgles out of the...
I'm in the process of sourcing caliper carriers off an S5 to fit to my 3.0tdi coupe 2011.
Part numbers I assume I need are BDA979 and BDA978.
Problem I'm finding is BDA979 seem to be out of stock everywhere I've looked but I've come across part number BDA1124. Would this part be compatible...
