Here is my 2013 S5 that broken down in 2 days! LOL

Took delivery of my 2013 S5 for almost a month. Despite have to fix the engine light issue after 2 days & 40 miles on a brand new car! Love this car. mainly is because of the look! 5 yr ago when we shop for the replacement on our E46 328i, we visited to an Audi dealer but with the attitude of the salesman and still not feel comfortable with Audi quality so we left and purchased a E92 335i instead. However, even I put on lots of tasteful mod on my E92 (well at least that what I feel), a S5 still make our head turn everytime when we saw one on the street. So my wife made the decision to keep the TSX as a spare car and go for a S5 instead of trading in our TSX for a S4.

Haven't done a lot yet, here are what for now: 30% tint, h&r OE spring & 20F/25R spacer, supercharged badge & xenondepot 6500k hid fog and Last but not the least... 3 layer of zaino!






BTW, is the hid fog too blue? should I switch out to a 4300k bulb instead?


Here are some interior photo, love the red & black leather! so classy!



And here are some photo on my stable, love all of them[]






The drive of the Audi is very smooth and the 3.0 TFSI is very powerful in stock form. But I still prefer the more direct connect steering, shifter, throttle feel from the bimmer & TSX. The Audi is really feel as a fast luxury car instead of a sporty car.

Maybe my luck or maybe my old car didn't welcome our new Audi! After I have the Audi fixed, I brought in the TSX to fix some minor rusting spot behind the rear door handle. But end up the whole bottom was rusted seriously on both rear door!

After spent an arm & leg to fix it and able to restore to perfect condition, the next day, My bimmer was having the famous water pump issue. So it stayed with the dealer for a week to replace the waterpump & thermostat out from my own pocket since I didn't get the extended warranty... When I drove my TSX to picked up the bimmer from the dealer, a loud noise came out underneath and I am quite sure it is the exhaust leak! So I just have to deal with car issue for the whole month!!!

Can't quite read the fine print on the sidewall of the tires. Please enlarge!

On a serious note, both cars are equally sexy IMO, until you see the quad exhaust, which gives the S5 the edge. Other than that, I still believe the E92 335 (especially LCI M-Sport) has one of the sexiest rear ends around.

Nice! I'm still debating on my next car to be S5 or the new M3/4. I really like the AWD.

Nice collection...

Having 3 cars keeps you busy... I had 5 cars last month (FJ Cruiser, M3, GTI, CC, 2003 Accord)... And between keeping all five clean, demodding the GTI, putting parts from the GTI onto the CC, and maintenance on the M3... 5 cars ended up taking all my attention and time...

Sold off the GTI and Accord and its such a big relief.

Anyhow... Should look at www.goapr.com and look into doing software and pully upgrade that gets you to RS5 power

Actually, I am the other way around! I love the front end of E92 and rear end of S5. But the wide stance of the S5 is really win my heart over!

Yup, cleaning 3 cars is really killing me! I just zaino & cleaning the interior on my E92 today, I am already exhausted! But if doesn't make sense to trade in a 10yr old TSX when it is still running strong. I still need a 4 dr to carry my dog around. I think everyone over here will go for the same route as me

Glad to see that someone else has gone from the N54 to the 3.0 TFSI and liked it.

I am preparing to do the same for the Audi SQ5 that gets the 3.0 TFSI (makes 349 hp and something like 343 ft-lbs)
