    Back to Audi Family - 2014 A5 2.0 TDI Sportsback

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Almost two years ago i moved to Italy for work and in doing so i had to unfortunately sell my 2014 S5 :( (https://www.audizine.com/forum/showt...is-White-Built). Driving in italy and the way people take care of their cars is not that great and i wanted to kind of experience and get to know the way things are before i buy something not too expensive but satisfies my hunger until i get back stateside. For about a year now i have been driving Citroen DS4 and although its a nice little car...it never got that look back as my S5 did whenever i park :)

    So this week i finally ended up signing all the paperwork for a 2014 Audi A5 Quattro 2.0 TDI (177hp) Sportsback :). Of course the modding needs to begin and i thats where i would need some help from @mops and others who are on the same side of the pond as me. Im not going to do alot of it just enough to keep me happy until the return home.

    Here are some of the things that im planning to do to make it aggressive, sounds better, and somewhat faster then it currenly is:

    [+] H&R OE Sports Springs
    [+] RS5 Rotor Style Wheels 19's or 20's
    [+] Possible Exhaust Change
    [+] Tune
    [+] Audio System

    SPRINGS
    Euro guys, any favorite shops i should be getting the sprrings from? i was thinking checking out Ebay and ordering them from there?

    WHEELS
    Im going through the wheel set up threat for the 5th time lol but i know for my wheels i will need help from @MOPS :) what im looking at right now is RS5 Rotor style wheels in 19s or 20s. So far what i found was All Round - 20x9 ET29, would i need spacers with this offset? I also found ET35 but i think i would need a 10mm with them?
    Also any suggestions for what kind and max size of tire i can get on the A5?

    EXHAUST AND A NICE SOUND
    So one thing that i miss which i had on my S5 is the nice exhaust tone that my AWE Track Exhaust produced. Now i know that for any kind of TDI there is no way to produce that kind of noise from exhaust? or is there???? is my only choice to go with fake sounds with AUDI Engine Sounds system? <-- I hope not!!!

    TUNE
    Also with 2.0 TDI i probably dont have alot of choice for tuning it. Euro folks, anyone Tuned their A5 2.0 TDI?

    I cant wait to hear back from some questions that i had and hopefully i can get in touch with some good companies in Europe to get my parts from.

    now for the pics.....here are the current pictures!!!! they will change soon:

    Hey Sly! Long time!

    Great looking SB. It's going to look really cool once you're done with it.

    Im going through the wheel set up threat for the 5th time lol but i know for my wheels i will need help from @MOPS :) what im looking at right now is RS5 Rotor style wheels in 19s or 20s. So far what i found was All Round - 20x9 ET29, would i need spacers with this offset? I also found ET35 but i think i would need a 10mm with them?
    Also any suggestions for what kind and max size of tire i can get on the A5?


    I would 100% go with the 20" RS5 rotor on the SB body. And that wheel is the ET26, not ET29. Once you find a set, they should come with 275/30 tires, and you'll want spacers, but mount them up, get your drop, and circle back. I'm thinking 10mm x 4 will suit your style.

    For suspension, I'd look at the KW HAS over the OE. The extra spend is totally worth the extra comfort and height adjustability.

    No clue on pipes or tune, but I know these can sound pretty badass.... so def look into it.

    as for suspension, i have a hard time finding KW HAS here in italy. is this the correct part that i would need (https://www.ebay.com/itm/KW-HAS-2009...j5T#shpCntId)? OR https://store.034motorsport.com/kw-h...-25310075.html
    also this should fit my audi here fine correct?
