Hi everyone thought I'd finally join after being an a5 owner for the past 5 years .
Currently own audi a5 b8 3.0tdi sport 6 speed manual in phantom Black. its currently on 52000 miles. Well looked after and much loved. Currently has mmi2, full colour sat nav, heated leather memory seats bi xenons. It also has 19 inch y spoke alloys parking sensors front and back . Ive only just decided to mod the car as I wasn't going to do another last was a subaru imprezza wrx the following has Currently been retro fitted, cruise control, keyless entry mffbs, push button starter with red ring, led face lift rear lights, rs5 8 pot front drembos fully refurbished, 365mm drilled front disks. Waiting to powder coat lower arms which will be polly bushed, rs5 rear hubs powder coated already, with 1polly Bush as that's all powerful do, rs5 rear 1 pot caliper full refurbed and 330mm drilled disk also waiting to go on . 2 November car will be having new bi xenon ( the ones that turn with the steering wheel) headlights fitted all new bulbs, audi drive select switch for the throttle response and steering, and audi high beam assist. Bit of a project, but prefer and love the b8 so a car I shall be keeping. Got loads of questions to ask if people are free, and hopefully I will become a hard core member in the future lol. Hope to get to know you all and possibly see and meet you all at any future car meets you may be planing.

Hi Simon, thanks for the warm welcome. New adaptive headlights will be fitted and coded 2nd November, with audi drive select and High beam assist also retro gutted on the same day . Next year I will continue with the retro fits, like heated rear leather seats, currently just full leather at the mo, 2 rear head rest tv screens , TV screen in front possible speaker upgrade, currently have bang and olf, changing all alloy interior trim to piano black ( Xmas present of Mrs santa) quick shift kit then s5/rs5 seats already have the rs5 pedals including foot rest. Suspension will be KW Street coil overs, full power flex polly bushes through out miltex full stainless exhaust, face lift s-line rear bumper, as there's more choice available for the rear diffuser, rs5 boot lid with working spoiler . I've got new bearings and bushes fitted to the rs5 rear hubs, powder coated satin black just waiting on new arm to be powdered as broke last one when fitting polly Bush . Car currently fully underseal and wax oiled to keep the elements at bay. Performance totally stock apart from a BMC cone filter housed in the standard air box. Current plan for the future is to run 650 bhp and 1000+ torque but that's one of the last jobs I want done. Car has the odd dink/dent but when I've got the skirts and bumpers i want I may get it sorted out then . Started sound deadening doors, genuine audi puddle lights and I've put small led bulb in door card that comes on when door opens. Just experimenting at the mo as there is a slight shadow in the door pocket which cheapen's the look and feel of the car. Loads to begetting on with and I think it us still another 2 years away from totally being finished to a standard I'm happy with. i have some build pictures I will try and upload this week. Just need to sort out a decent set of bulbs for the new headlights now, dog xenon, halogen full beam, indicator, parking lights, and fog light bulbs.
Hope this explains what I'm hoping to achieve .
