Seeing as we are yet again in lockdown. I met a friend and we stayed 2M apart. I wanted to repump this thread with a mean pic of a A5 running 330bhp 700nm and a M4 500bh idk the nm. Makes me tempted to take my build truther, But I have some service fixes to do. I have ordered a new gearbox gasket, Filter strainer etc going to do it myself too so expect a detailed thread on how to properly service a S Tronic at home (I have read like 200 pages of info on it) I will drop some part numbers and info on how to identify the gen of your S Tronic from VCDS dump.

Also for Christmas I might be getting a Wagener intercooler. And I'm tempted to treat myself to some S line lamps for my front.

So Gentlemen, What's on your list for Santa this year?
V6Thomas, well...a little off track, but I’m away to install a fully flaked epoxy resin garage floor for the RS to sit on. I too have comprehensively researched so watch this space...I’ll post some pics.

V6Thomas, it’s going to be a 4mm MMA floor. It’s called Methyl Methacrylate flooring systems.
I’m going to shotblast the current painted surface, diamond cut the floor to a smooth and hard base, then apply primer, then 4mm if MMA epoxy with a decorative flake then two coats of sealant. Should, fingers crossed, look the business. It states it should be good for 25 years.

I took me all Sunday morning lol . I decided to chop my 2013 A5 Sline for a 2018 A5 Sline same speck as previous one but with a few extras. I can’t believe how much depreciation in 2 1/2 years, but I suppose buying a Cabriolet in the winter they are always going to be cheaper. This ones the 252bhp version where the older one was 211 bhp, can’t say that the extra 40 odd BHP makes a great deal of difference but there again I’ve only had it a week and her indoors has used it most lol

So I did a Service to my Stronic 0B5 (GEN1.5) yesterday as of a leaky gasket. Oil does not look OEM and is only 15k old since I last had the Stronic serviced.
I opened the sump and did the strainer too, Side filter all Orings changed. Cleaned the magnets (No fragments anywhere so a good sign) I split the old Strainer and nothing in there ether (Strainer is as old as the car)

Cost me about 240 all into service, with correct Trans Fluid.
Few things to note if anyone dose this the gearbox only really accept 5.8L to 6L of Transmission fluid. I got stuck at 5L with it pouring out the Fill hole. I put the plug back in cycled it between some gears, and it accepted around 1L more. I think I read somewhere that some of the Fluid would be by the DMF or something and is a bit separate.

Well, she drives and shifts heavenly now. It's quieter etc. NOTE I only got about 4.5L out of the damn gearbox so she was defiantly lacking.

Well I already know where we are making our first meet this year 😂 😂
I’d be well up for that. 😉. I had a local Audi meet planned this year but because of covid it all got cancelled. Hopefully normal service will resume in 2021 and can catch up with fellow A5/S5/RS5 enthusiasts.

Xmas has come early. Well the fact is I ordered these in mid Sept not knowing there was a worldwide shortage, with most stockist quoting January 2021 for delivery. So that gives a little context to my initial statement.

I cant wait to get these badboys installed
