    brake servo restricted

    I just bought a 2017 S5 so I thought I would check. It looks like I have the latest version "B", which according to ETKA was only available from 01/03/21. Maybe the previous owner had replaced it already or do they all just fail.

    S3 to S5

    I have just gone from a 2016 FL S3 3 door to a 2017 S5 Coupe and love it. As said above it is such a nice place to sit, more room than the S3 and it still gets me when I look out the passenger door mirror and it seems far away. I miss the Hatchback for lugging stuff about, the boot in the S5 is...

    S4 Exhaust Valve tweak

    I had mine disabled on the S3 via VCDS , no issues but looks like no way on the S5. Like other people have found with miles on the car and heat and dirt over time mine were really difficult to remove. When I had mine disconnected it threw up some error codes, in VCDS, relating to the rear...

    Air Filter Servicing Requirements.

    After picking up the S5 a few weeks back, 25K on the clock, I thought I would check the air filter housing as some had reported debris in there. I'm not sure if an animal had been living there but lots of feathers and leaves !!

    Facelift S3 gone, I only called in to extend the warranty !!

    Mine is the 3.0 V6 Turbo, I'm not sure if they have changed the pedal layout for the B9 but I would say it's one of the most comfortable cars I have driven, especially the massage seats :grinning:.

    Facelift S3 gone, I only called in to extend the warranty !!

    So I thought I would go for the Audi all in warranty/service pack as I decided I would just keep the S3 as I couldn't decide what to buy next. When I was in for the initial inspection someone had just bought a new RS5 and traded in a 2017 S5 Coupe 3.0T, only 25K miles, same colour as my S3...
