Okay, brought car in today and the mechanics put it up on the hoist. Was told I need a new resonator. Not sure what happened to it as the car only has about 2500 km on it. Service guy said they've...

Intermittent Buzzing Sound From Bottom

Hello. I have my 2011 A5 for just a little over a year now and had its first oil change/service a few weeks back. Since I have gotten it back, I noticed a intermittent buzzing sound which appears to...

Question Regarding Battery Terminals/Charging

Greetings.

I kinda babied mine. I think the manual says not to rev it past a certain rpm (2/3 of redline?) during the break-in period (1500km). However, it is kind of tempting to see what it's capable of. :)

Does this apply to A5s built before a certain month/year? Mine is a 2011 built in May and I notice that it does idle pretty low but is this not normal?

It's pretty good in my opinion. It might not be AutoArt quality but then again it's not Maisto either. lol

This is the Norev model which I believe is the only 1/18th A5 around. I was tempted...

I did the exact thing you're looking to do. Once you remove the two Torx 20 screws, it exposes the plastic grill that nicely fits a European plate. I think it looks better than a filler plate...

Throttle Lag Question

I have a 2011 A5 Sline Tiptronic that's still within the break-in period. Anyway, I seem to be one of those affected by the 'drive-by-wire' throttle lag (or delayed response). This is mainly...

I thought I'd add my two cents into this. I was just in Hong Kong last week.

Yes, my new 2011 A5 does this as well. It's known as needle sweep.

I believe the older Audis (don't know what year(s) specifically) didn't do this as some people have to enable it through...

No, I think gd10 said in one of his previous messages he couldn't look-up Canadian orders.

For me, it was about 5.5 weeks from when the car went into production to arriving in my city. Not bad considering it has to wait to be transported by ship and rail car afterwards.

I meant the week it actually is in production - which for you would mean week 29. For me it was listed as "Assigned Production Week" and "Actual Production Week", but both were the same.

VAG-COM - Good to Have?

I'm a recent A5 owner and one of things I've noticed about it (which kind of bugs me) is the 'winking' in which the DRL turns off on the side whenever the amber signal is flashing. I'm not sure why...

You guys are lucky it's only a couple of months of waiting. When I ordered mine, I knew going into it it would be 3 months minimum. Turned out to be 3 days short of 5.5 months.

You must be referring to the 2012 model as drive select was an option on the 2011.

I'm not sure if this has changed for 2012 or not but I was really crazy about the RS5 wheels for my A5. However,...
