    2014 Misano Red S line competition package A5

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hey Guys,

    Just purchased my first non Japanese car in my 25 years of driving cars.

    This car is the most solid, quietest, most stable car I have ever owned. More so than the Lexus IS350 I recently had.

    I'll start by saying I always admired German cars but was deathly afraid of their reliability. I started to take notice that the Audi brand was getting more reliable as the years went by so I decided to take the plunge and ordered a Misano Red A5 with the S line competition package and 6 speed manual on the 4th of July. The Car finally arrived on November 2nd.

    Here are some pics of the car. Not planning on modding the car, but if I do I may add 15mm spacers all around and that is about it.











    Update 8/21 ...First mod since buying the car (9 months later) changing the black mirror caps and skirts to Misano red painted ones. Got a extra set of skirts from ECS and the mirror caps from Ebay. Had my brother in law paint them for me.





    I'll need to get some extra clips for the skirts and should have this installed in a week or so.

    Great pick up...welcome to the family! Love that flat-bottom and the black headliner...makes me wish I'd pulled the trigger on the S-line package too!

    That's how it started with me. There are relatively cheap mods you can do that won't add up to much. Switch out the cabin bulbs to LEDs and Vag com mods in particular.

    Beautiful car BTW!

    The black blade kills me. The Ti peelers look great. But for the sake of everything aesthetic lower her kick out the wheels with some spacers. I have H&R Sport springs for sale to get you started. Cheap too. PM me. Love the color btw.

    Hey fasteddy, congrats on a great purchase, German cars are way better than Japanese cars by far. A Toyota might be an incredibly reliable car, but it just doesn't compare to German cars. If there is 1 thing the German's know how to do, it's building cars, oh, and making good beer!!! LOL

    The s-line with comp package looks great too, the interior is astounding.

    Apart from wheel spacers, I would try and get some Lamin-X, maybe just a light tint, to apply on your rear tail lights. With the red colour and the mostly red of the tail lights, it just blends in a bit too much for my liking. With a slight tint Lamin-X on the tail lights, they'll stick out a bit more and become more of a feature of the design of the car. If you going to get Lamin-X, you might as well get the front headlight protection too. I've recently applied Lamin-X tint to my S5 and it looks sick! Totally changes the character of the car.
    Regards,
    Steve Knight

    I really like the mirror caps, but I agree on the blades.

    Depends on what springs. H&R OE- .8" H&R Sport- 1.2"
    There are others.

    Awesome car with the blacked grill, trims, side skirts, interior trims, seats, gray rims, flat bottom, black headliner etc. I wouldn't do too much modding on it either! What engine do you have?

    Thanks Mops. I really don't plan on lowering it arms the ride is stiff enough and the wife would kill me if I did but if I lowered it. It would be the h&r OE springs.

    Or, KW ST's. They are very smooth. Just the same as stock honestly.

    I run the H&R OE's on my car. Rear looks good, front still has some gap that bothers me. Ride's just a tad firmer than stock, barely noticeable. I'll probably switch to ST's in the Spring just to get it a little lower.

    I'd go V1 or H&R street in NY being its a daily. And yes, the 2.0 cars get screwed with lowering springs, being the part number carries across all motors Even my 3.2 had a bit of reverse rake.

    I liked the H&R coils. After I put my coils on, I expected a harsher ride than the stock sport suspension, but surprisingly the H&R ran softer. Was very happy with that. Coils come off next week and may be up for sale....

    Edit: H&R spacers will also be up for sale 20/25mm for F/R

    OE is a great drop. Ride doesnt really change but big appearance change. Slip some spacers in there. My brother has a 2010 or 2011 and it sits waaay lower. My 2013 A4 sl ine was really high. Not sure why Audi has raised their cars. Cant get an answer. I thought S line was leather interior now? Red is amazing.

    I was so unsure of alcantara before I got it. it's amazing. my favorite things about it are

    1. the two tone vibe
    2. how cool it stays, my car is black on black and my previous car was white with black leather, every time I got in my old car (B8) my back would sweat instantly. Now I don't have the problem whatsoever.

    I have had it for a year and its not bad. I prefer leather. It seems to be bullitproof.
