Hi guys,

I am a new Audi S5 owner and just recently came across this forum and wanted to say Hi and share some pictures of my new S5.

This is my first Audi but I am car nut who obsessed with performance. My list of previous cars include a couple of Supra TT and three NSX's (lol yes I love the NSX)

So as far as my S5 goes I am one of the lucky few actually got it as promised right on time. I ordered on October 4th and it was delivered January 7th (This was actually my 2nd order I originally had placed a deposit at another dealer in June but they changed their tune on the pricing we had agreed upon so I went elsewhere - long story). My S5 is Brilliant Black with Black Alcantara, Carbon Atlas trim, B&O and Nav. I did not get the Tech package because I am planning on switching to E-Codes and it is about $550 cheaper to get the non adaptive e-codes so I passed on tech. With Tech already being $1700 plus the additional $550 I just couldn't bring myself to spend $2250 total for basically a push button start. Honestly I don't really feel as though I missed out on anything to special without tech but thats just personal preference.

Some of the mods I plan include 20x10 DPE LS-5's, E-codes, H&R OE Sport Springs, Milltek Exhaust, and Huper Optik 35% tint. It is going to take me some time to do all that but I will eventually get it done step by step. The S5 is such a wonderful car stock that I am in no hurry to do anything as I am enjoying every second I am in it. So as promised here are some pics.

Also if any of you guys in Southern California want to check it out in person before you order (ie see brilliant black and alcantara) just pm me.

Thanks - E-codes are the euro spec headlights without the amber reflectors

Welcome!

Beautiful car! Love the look of those Alcantara seats. Looking forward to hearing about and seeing pics once you get your mods done.

Hello and welcome! Hmm...I feel like I've already drooled over this car before (that setting looks really familiar), but seemingly weeks ago. Maybe Audizine's forum?

Anyway - have a BB on order myself (but A5) and always love seeing photos. Will be a lot of fun to watch you go through your mods!

Nice!

I have every mod you named on order and installation date is set for the 3rd week of February.
The LS5's are being painted a custom color so I guess our cars will differ there..:)
I'll be sure to post up some pics.....

Thanks - Are you planning any mods on the A5? These pics were actually on Audiworld a couple weeks ago. I need to get some more pics but I've been having too much fun driving it to stop and take any pics :)

Sizzle - I would love to see your pics as you start getting your mods done - especially with the custom color on the DPE's. I am planning to do brushed aluminum with a polished lip on mine. Are you planning to go for the 1" or 1.3" drop?

All mods will be done in one day. Everything is paid for and is scheduled to arrive starting next week. My Milltek will be here any day now, and my e-codes and wheels are about a week out.

My wheels will be gloss silver which is basically the color of the stock rims. I will have a polished lip as well. I like brushed in the shade, but in direct sun they look too bling to me. The gloss silver will take alot of the shine away but still be quite noticeable.

My springs are the 1". The 1.3 looks good, but I don't want the car sitting too low with 20's. If I had 19's I may have went for the more aggressive 1.3" drop.

I went with a 265/30 wheel which is just a fraction off of the stockers. Ride should be close to the same with the tire size and spring choice....

The only serious consideration for me thus far are wheel spacers. I think that's some serious bang for your buck. Perhaps springs while I'm in there. I've never modded a car before, so I'll have to feel my way along and live vicariously through Sizzle and you for now ;)
