    they are - so make sure you specify you have an S5 and that it's a B8.5 (B8 vs. B8.5 is different too)

    Quick Help .. haha
    Car has 54k and they want to offer a warranty to 100k for 4k
    I agree with a extended warranty but that seems really high.

    Congrats! Great spec.

    I have no experience with the extended warranties, but can you offer them say $3K?

    @hippiekiller is quite familiar with these warranties and the downsides.

    Biggest thing with a warranty like this, read the fine print. Still worth having, but make sure it says it wont cover such and such rather than listing the things it does cover. If it lists what it does cover, thats literally all its going to cover. And theres a lot to wrong that they wont when they word it that way. Id do the research and see what you can get on your own. I believe its Fidelity that does extended warranties for Audi, Id start there. I got 4yrs/100k extended on my 15 that covers everything the factory Audi warranty would for $3200. My car was at 5500 miles when I bought, so that might play into it some. But I think you can do better.

    my 2015 had 4000 miles on it - Ipaid $3200 for 60 month/60k miles whatever comes first - comprehensive warranty (drivetrain only was $2500 if i remember correctly) - this one was bumper to bumper - seemed worth it with only 10 months left to go on the factory warranty.

    Thanks man. Yea i read the information. Pretty clear on what it does NOT cover. Mostly obvious wear and tear items and non factory modified parts (duh)
    Little curious on the shocks ... well the edc (?) drive select option. It says the shocks are not covered but what if the module goes. Looks like they are sold as a whole for $500 each :eek:

    Are you sure your car is a 2015 model year car? That's an optional wheel that only came with the 2016/2017 model years. Unless the previous owner or the dealer swapped wheels.

    Like this one:

    You can also look at your VIN and determine when your car was made. Check the 10th digit. If it is a "G", then your car is a 2016 model. If the 10th digit is an "F" then it is a 2015.

    Cheers!

    3. When you are paying cash, you can gamble.

    It does currently have winter tires on it. Possible the PO had another set he held onto.

    How much tread life is left? May want them to throw in 4 new tires.

    Also check the brakes. These cars mow down brake pads like Kentucky Bluegrass. They will also have to change the rotors most likely as well ($1300 for pads/rotors installed at an indy shop).

    They are doing both .. they replace anything thats over 40% used. Tires are actually decent, and will be able to keep them.

    I agree with a extended warranty but that seems really high.

    4k is a bit high, but just make sure that somewhere in that fine print there isn't a monetary limit for each claim. Once I bought a warranty for a car and when I had transmission issues, I discovered in the fine print that there was a cap on each claim against the policy. So, my transmission issues cost nearly $3000, but the warranty only covered $2200 of the repair. Still saved me some loot, but I was not expecting to have to pay anything, certainly not another $800, so just be aware. I can tell you from experience with an 02 A6 and an 08 S5 that EVERYTHING on these cars is ridiculously expensive, especially if you are getting the work done with a certified mechanic, so your warranty could conceivably pay for itself after just one claim because you have to drop the engine even to change the windshield wipers probably (kidding), but if you can get the coverage for less, go for it, but if $4k is where its at, then just get it. Your car will absolutely break at some point...trust me. These are awesome cars, but they are very particular. I don't think I have ever seen one that hasn't tried to kill its owner with the cost of its repair. Spend the money, save yourself a headache. (BTW, my S5 is hanging out with my mechanic right now...no longer under warranty...I know of what I speak.)

    That's good. Did you get a PPI done at an independent Audi garage?

    I know each case is different, but there are lots of people on this forum that are 60K, 80K, even 100K without any significant issues. Also, paying $2500 for a major repair is still cheaper than $4000.

    Overall, extended warranties rarely pay for themselves. That's why dealers push them so hard. It is better practice to save a little money every month in a rainy day fund and use it when you have to.

    They sell nothing but imports mainly Audis and BMWs. Plus came highly recommended.
