Hi Guys,

Just bought myself a S5 sportback and officially joined the forums. (Even though ive been stalking them for a while now as a guest). Planning on starting my list of mods on the car with some spaces to give it a little more aggressive stance and am unsure of which size to get. Ive seen some people get 10mm all around and some do 10/12. Is that the consensus from people to have a more aggressive look going 10 in front and 12 in back?

Also, my planned future mod list includes in case anyone cares lol:

-Air intake
-ABT tune (possibly need intercooler to get most out of it it sounds like?)
-chrome black out
-RS front bumper

Any other mods to not break the bank that is "needed"?

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your purchase!

Not actually a mod, per se, but get an ODBII, as I'm sure you'll want to personalize a lot of the options on the car if you are doing the list that you presented. Just changing the VC so it displays the gear you're in while in D or S, was worth the price to me (but I've done many other changes.)

Is that available under OBDeleven or Carista? I have both from my B8, but haven't had a chance to use them with the S5 yet.

Can't speak for Carista, as I have OBDeleven, so that change was obviously available via ODBII. Reference the link below for a complete list of known changes you can make via ODBII:

Yes if you look at the picture I posted it already has full 3m tint around and the windshield has a clear tint that blocks uv rays. And yes I am planning on doing a front bra and ceramic coat.

Ah my bad! Totally didnít see that. Iím planning on doing ceramic coating after my 6 months complimentary coating kinda fades. Now, Iím trying to find a shop to install EMDís RS style grille.

I went with 12/15 spacers from ECS and they are great! I also have the ABT piggy (arguably overpriced compared to JB4 but I got a "deal" on it and wanted the ABT / Audi "partnership") and it helps. As far as intercooler, I have the APR one but since you can't at all tweak the ABT piggyback as opposed to JB4 it honestly doesn't do much unless you repeatedly hammer the car. In that case it can help maintain lower intake temps. If you go ABT piggy, unless they changed something I would put my money elsewhere when it comes to intercooler. I think my favorite mod to date has been the AWE Touring exhaust 😃👍
