    Ian, even fit them yourself and get them to cut the under tray.

    Q5 Steering wheel upgrade SE-T (8R)

    If you are going the whole hog to change the wheel then I would recommend changing it to a facelift flat bottom wheel

    SQ5 Keyless theft protection??

    Buy faraday bags - it will at least block any signals and cause them more hassle

    Q5 Audi Q5 genuine side steps/running boards

    For example - there were small squares covering holes that you had to insert these plugs/riv nuts Then the mounting plates could only go where there were supposed too, wouldn't fit anywhere else Fitted

    Q5 Audi Q5 genuine side steps/running boards

    @Ian66 not 2019 but when fitting them to our 2011 the only thing we needed instructions for was where to cut the new under trays, the rest was pretty self explanatory as there was no where else for the mounts to fit Have you priced Audi to fit? Should probably take 2-3 hours to complete

    Been very quiet on the Q5 front due to my wife needing it more or less every day and my son getting all the attention lol but she was away for a few days so decided to get some bits done to it while she was gone. First off earlier this month was its MOT: I was seated so close hence the...

    Q5 3.0 Exhaust to 2.0

    I have the opportunity to get my hands on a second hand 3.0 TDI exhaust I already have the rear valence but has anyone fitted 3.0 to a 2.0? I assume the Quattro system is the same and under floor of the chassis is the same and tbh I do not see why it wouldn't fit but I would like to know if...

    SQ5 SQ5 Stage 1 Dyno results

    What other beneficial tuning mods can you do the to the 3.0TDI SQ5? I am considering changing to a PFL SQ5 TDI sometime next year coming from my Stage 3 S3 I'm of the opinion a ECU and TCU remap would be the first port of call (revo for example) and some sort of turbo back exhaust and panel...

    Q5 Our new 2011 Q5 2.0TDI S-Line Special Edition

    @richiepg I believe you would have more boot space in your VRS as we are personally finding the Q5 quite small with just a baby and all the **** you have to bring. We are planning to have 2 kids so I don't know what it will be like with another little one! Other than that I love it - however, I...

    Q5 Our new 2011 Q5 2.0TDI S-Line Special Edition

    @mossym thanks - I picked up the carbon parts from german ebay. Unfortunately at the time I didn't realise that the dash board "Quattro" trim was the opposite way round so I had to buy it new for a UK car for £150 :( Sold the one I had for £80/90 All the trim bits are handy to replace but from...

    You can literally see your future in the reflection - to say I’m pleased is an understatement. My wife drove it home yesterday and to see it rolling on ahead was class. Love this Q5.
