Just bought a Navarra blue S5 Sportback!

Been searching for a S4/S5 SB for a few months now which included the adaptive suspension and finally bought one which I'm picking up this weekend. It's got a mega spec so quite excited! It's my first petrol car for quite a few years. My last petrol car was a Nissan Silvia Spec R.

Spec includes: VC, B&O, ACC, Matrix LEDs, Driver pack tour, Adaptive suspension, sports diff, dynamic steering, carbon inlays, flat bottom wheel, rev cam, ext interior lighting, pan roof, storage pack & a few more that I can't think of

Got it in the best colour too which is the Navarra blue metallic!

Quite excited to say the least. It's my very first Audi ever and I'm hoping the driving enhancements such as the dynamic steering, adaptive suspension & sports diff has a more RWD feel rather than dealing with the infamous quattro understeer.

Anyone else own a similar spec one?

Do I need to drive the car very hard to benefit from the sports diff?

Sounds similar spec to mine, same colour… except mine has 2 less doors and without carbin inlays!
I think Navarra looks great with either the chrome or blacked out bits too.

Photos attached. My first impressions of it are very impressed with the level of refinement inside. It's quieter than my 3 series.

The adaptive suspension is definitely softer than the Sport suspension even in the Sportiest mode and the general falling feels the same as my 3 series that also had adaptive suspension.

The equipment inside is also very impressive and the handling is sharp even though I've hardly even pushed it.

I really like the fact that it's a really quiet GT style cruiser when in comfort mode and then changes character in Dynamic mode.

It looks so cool especially at night!

It accelerates very smoothly and progressively but doesn't have the same adrenaline rush that I got from my Nissan Silvia S15.

Also I can definitely notice less torque coming from the 335xd which was a twin turbo so to be expected.

I'm not going to bother modifying it as I like it as it is.

Congrats on the car looks like a great spec. Did you get it from Lincoln Audi by any chance or the JCT600 group I recognise the body shop in the background :tearsofjoy:

I got it from Lincoln Audi yes They’ve been really good actually. They fitted 4 brand new tyres because the ones on the car got damaged when they were doing the MOT. Also got 1 week car insurance for free and they’ve given me the 12 month warranty on top of all that.
