Default Lug nut size/torque rating

Does anyone know the lugnut size (17mm?) and the torque rating for tightening the lugnuts? In case I need to remove the wheels and put them back later...I want to know. Couldn't find it in the manual. Thanks!

Torque for the Q5 is 105ft-lbs not 90.

Nice write up Reggie. We need more of those for the Q5 since there is no Bentley or service manuals.
Any idea where I can get the jack pad for Audi pinch weld?

I was surprised that Audi went back to the pinch weld as they did away with them on the RS4.

Pure MotorSport has them.If any of our sponsors have them they should speak up:

Thanks Reggie. I actually have the black version of those. They work but do "compress/squish" down a bit. Would prefer something a bit harder.
