    Q5 Q5 rear wiper judder

    Changed the blade for a new Bosch one from EBay for £9.50 delivered and silence! Top tip to just swap the blade. Oddly the new one is longer than the one on the car, maybe it isn’t as new as I thought….. :laughing:

    SQ5 New 2020 SQ5 FY Owner

    With a 6+month wait and little discount, it’s not a great time to buy. Great time to sell if you don’t ‘need’ a car though.

    Q5 Q5 rear wiper judder

    Does anyone else’s rear wiper judder on their Q5 ( or Other Qcars) ? have you been able to fix it? How did you do it? Mine judders and skips over the screen all the time. Have tried cleaning it, lubricating the blade, checking the straightness, polishing the glass, nothing seems to work. Given...

    SQ5 Audi SQ5 Issues 2020 model

    SQ5 has 6 piston callipers on front and much bigger disks, I’d expect it to brake harder and grip faster. Brakes have been very good on mine no issues, unlike my previous Alfa Stelvio with its “brake by wire” system, now that was inconsistent, same pedal pressure/press, sometimes nothing would...

    Q7 Time to upgrade, Q7 or an A7 (2017 onwards)

    Those are the all season tyres aren’t they? Wouldn’t have thought they would be std fit for an Sq5? Mine is on PZero’s.

    Q7 Time to upgrade, Q7 or an A7 (2017 onwards)

    What tyres is it running, as different brands can have different sidewall constructions affecting bump absorption and stiffness . I’d assume it should still have the original OE tyres given its age?? My 21’s seem great on ride quality on Pirelli’s but I do have Air suspension. Noticeable...

    Q5 TFSI E Q5 experiences

    Look up on Autotrader to see the current prices and discounts of new and nearly new. Hybrid Q5’s are pretty new still and Autotrader is effectively setting the market price nowadays. You should be able to judge the kind of depreciation to be seen on models, but watch as currently used prices...

    SQ5 SQ5 vs X3 M40d

    One was probably the dealer. Need to be mad to have consciously ordered a Q5 with exclusive paint.

    SQ5 SQ5 vs X3 M40d

    Agreed, depends on your plans and finance situation, but £2k more is better than £11k difference for a new model. I think green is the new black. :) I also like the new green colour available on the facelift Q5. Not sure it is a hard sell, though my wife detests the Porsche green (mamba, viper...

    SQ5 SQ5 vs X3 M40d

    Unless you really want a brand new one, there are a couple of nearly new SQ5 Vorsprung models from last year with less than 5k miles on Autotrader for about the same price as new std SQ5. 2.5k of Audi exclusive green paint on this one which is lovely...

    SQ5 SQ5 vs X3 M40d

    I didn’t, when I bought mine in Sept last year there was a glut of stock Vorsprung models at big discounts, local dealer had one in spec/colour I liked. I’ve watched as the facelift and then the current car price bonanza has driven discounts down and prices way up. I appreciate its now a huge...

    Q5 Q5 Delivery Times

    I must love an antiquated car then having a non touch screen Q5. Thinking I might have hit peak tech without annoyance, still got the scrolling knob and buttons, plus lane keep assist I can turn off permanently, all things the latest Audis seem to have lost in the name of progress.

    SQ5 SQ5 vs X3 M40d

    I liked the Stelvio design and flair. The steering and paddles shift experience is night and day from the SQ5, but quality wise it was pretty low rate inside. The facelift version is much better. has often made me think of all the best features of different cars I’ve owned and the fantasy of...

    SQ5 SQ5 vs X3 M40d

    I tested an X4 M40d before the SQ5. I liked the X4 exterior style in full m sport trim, but the digital dash was a mess, and the secondary ride was a bit busy in my opinion, plus the wife just hated it. Coming out of a Alfa Stelvio with its very busy ride and hyper active steering I preferred...

    Q7 Time to upgrade, Q7 or an A7 (2017 onwards)

    Shouldn’t have to buy a £200 part to fix a £60k car, but I’ve also looked at this too. Here is the A6 C8 thread about gearbox lag and software update. https://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/c8-gearbox-after-recent-software-update-how-does-it-compare.420967/

    Q7 Time to upgrade, Q7 or an A7 (2017 onwards)

    Haven’t noticed beeps, but it does a variety of whirs and gurgles when stopped from diesel tank and air reservoir(air suspension). Can only here them from outside the car though, can’t hear anything in the cabin. My previous Alfa Stelvio and Lexus Is300h used to whistle/high pitched...

    Q7 Time to upgrade, Q7 or an A7 (2017 onwards)

    I’ve come form an Alfa Romeo 2.2D Stelvio which has the same ZF gearbox, but likely different software implementation and no lag there either.

    Q7 Time to upgrade, Q7 or an A7 (2017 onwards)

    I’m not even sure the update is valid for Q5, it was in the A6 forum but the symptoms sound very similar. I’ll try and find it and put a link in.

    Q7 Time to upgrade, Q7 or an A7 (2017 onwards)

    Mine is exactly like this. Lift off, slow down for roundabout or junction or traffic lights, then put foot down to get out and its like it needs to think about selecting a gear, build boost, drop clutch then go. Its infuriating and pretty much the only thing about the car I really dislike...

    SQ5 SQ5 Fuel Efficiency in Town / Dual Carriageway

    have now checked brim to brim calc from 2 tanks over 850miles of mixed motorway, town and stuff up and down the Peak district - 36.1mpg overall. So pretty close to the computer, and very happy given the car and its newness.
