She keeps bugging me about taking her to the Nurburgring for her birthday this year.... ****** teenagers want it all huh!
Hi matey and welcome to the forums.
I too am new to the A5 after upgrading from a A3 1.9tdi, we couldn't help ourselves and fell in love with the 3.0tdi.
Otherwise it's like yours, 2010 3.0tdi quattro S-Line Special Edition.
What gear is yours loaded with? Looks like it has the Black Optic...
I'm near Fareham, Between Portsmouth and Southampton.
Looks from your signature you are a past VX man too, I had a Vectra 2.5 V6 Supertouring for 12yrs!
I have yet to own a car with same soild build as the A5 tho.
Looks lovely Nick, shame you are so far away or we could compare new motors!
We have just gone from a A3 1.9 to a 2010 A5 3.0tdi Quattro S Line Special Edition!
A5 activity seems pretty quiet on here... Have you headed over to Audi A5/S5 Owners Club - A5_OC yet??
Hmmmm, there seems to be a pattern forming here!
I too have received top notch and friendly service from our very own Nigel.
Cable received before I even expected it!
Big thanks from me too :icon_thumright:
Well that would have been a job worth doing even if I hadn't put the wrong fuel in!
The old fillter came out black!
I am a little shocked that these kinda things are not changed at every service, the car is a 06 plate and has 40k on the clock.
It has always been serviced by the main dealers...
The unleaded did taste like ****, but not salty luckily!
There was only about 20miles left in the tank when the unleaded was added.
Might pick up a filter just to be safe. Where are they situated on the car, it it on the pump under the seat?
Thanks for the replys guys.
Do you think changing the fuel filter is needed?
The missus would have done 2 days of driving to work in it on 98% diesel by now.
If its a good idea then I'll get a new one straight away.
I am still kinda kicking myself for starting it really, but needed to get it off the forecourt to empty the tank and back again to fill it back up!
It was less than 100yds and pretty much at tickover rpm.
I was gonna offer the unleaded to a mate but figured that is probably contaminated with...
Yesterday I did something for the 1st time!
What an idiot - £30/20L of Unleaded in the Audi 1.9 Diesel :keule:
Dunno what i was thinking but after 20yrs of driving I made the fools error!
Anyway drove the car 100yrs to the car park opposite, got the missus to come out with 4 empty cans, hose...
You'll need it reset mate sorry, I did exactly the same when I fitted a Parrot kit. It stores the fault code as soon as you switch the ignition on.
****** cars are too clever for their own good!
