Audi A5 Coupe 2.7 TDI Sport 2d Multitronic (2008/08) - Owner Review

It's not very practical if im being honest, a lot of room at the front but it's very cramped at the back. There's a lot of boot space though.

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchised

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
-

When did you buy the car?
May 2010

Did you get a good deal and why?
Not really, Audi didn't budge on the price. Partly because they knew that it's one of the hottest cars on the road, if I don't buy it someone else will.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
The looks.

What was the dealer like?
Ok, all dealers are good when they want to sell you something.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Very responsive, gear changes are relatively smooth and sports mode makes the car turn into an animal. You feel every bump due to the stiff sports suspension but that part and parcel for every sports car.

What's it like to park?
It's a big car so can be daunting if you're a nervous parker. The rear parking sensor is accurate which of course helps.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
One of the Xenon headlamps went on it, costly to replace (around £120). Stockport Audi spent 2 and half hours to diagnose a simple bulb out issue, so they can charge me ridiculous labour rates and £120 for the bulb. Avoid that dealership. Faulty Diesel Particulated Filter Sensor, around £62 to replace. Electric window stopped working, which is apparently a common fault on a lot of Audi's, was repaired under warranty.

What's most practical about your car?
It's not very practical if im being honest, a lot of room at the front but it's very cramped at the back. There's a lot of boot space though.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
IPod interface, multitronic gearbox with the flappy paddles is fun. Heated seats, Bang & Olufsen sound system is the best I've ever heard in a car. Car is very well equiped, the interior looks like a cockpit.
