Default How is your A5/S5/RS5 Holding Up?

Thought it would be nice to share your model, how many miles is on the dash and how it is holding up since you purchased it!

I'm little over 10 months of ownership. 7,500 miles. No trips to the dealer since I've owned it. No complaints or regrets about buying this car, love it. If I needed to be picky, these are the worst issues I've experienced:

(2) presense 'scare the crap out of you hard-braking intervention' - once at a gas station (backing up) and one backing into my garage

I've had to reteach the windows about 3 separate times.

'18A5 Sportback - purchased end of July '17 and just went over 19k on it.
Have a few hick-ups with the Audi pre-sense sensors going off a few times.
I did have a 'freak' alert last night driving home.... all of a sudden a Red Triangle with the ! symbol in the middle came up big on the center screen (Virtual cockpit) and the car and about a second later the brakes suddenly applied /locked and then released - i was doing around 75mph on the highway. Lucky no one was on my tail but it did freak me out a bit because there was nothing on the highway in front of me or around me to 'trigger' the system.

2018 RS5 Daytona Grey-Fully loaded

Picked him up in June '18 and only have put 1,052km on the odo in six months.. Its a shame really.. That being said, no issues...love it to pieces.

I also have a 2005 Mazda 3 that I use as a daily with the RS5 limited to weekend work. However, I have not driven the RS5 since October/November....I was too cheap to invest in the unbelievably expensive Audi winter wheel/tire package and decided to instead just use the Mazda for this winter. It's actually a nice piece of mind knowing that it is the Mazda taking the beating from the salt, snow and ice in Toronto!

My RS5 is my garage, parked on top of thick rubber mats, with an Audi charger attached to the battery and an Audi Car cover keeping him warm and snuggy until spring time. Hopefully will be able to put much more KM's on him!

2019 S5 SB, took delivery 2 weeks at on 1/28. Only ~340 miles on it and no issues so far! Love driving it and learning about it. Only minor gripe is the sluggish shift changes at low speeds on D mode but I usually drive in S mode in the city and switch to D on long highway drives and it's not as bad.
