    I'm not seeing an option for it in the A5 Sportback pricelist. The option on the A6 range has an order code of 1XT, but I guess it's not available on the A5.

    Cheers!

    Just received a call directly from Audi UK. There has never been a heated steering wheel option in the UK on the A5, due to low potential demand. Each country apparently determines their own offered options.

    There is definitely some confusion about the Heated Steering Wheel option on the A5. See this used example http://www.monmotorsaudi.co.uk/used-...-138658120645/ It lists and shows a Heated Steering Wheel.

    Also the option appears to be called 1XP which is the 3 spoke heated version.

    See https://www.salisburyaudi.co.uk/pdf/...-pricelist.pdf too

    Hi all

    Iím looking to move from the A4 B9 to the A5 SB - has anyone made this move? Iím a little concerned that it will feel too ďsameyĒ, though I am favouring a very different spec

    Currently have the basic S Line 190 TDI Man, and Iím looking at the S Line 190 TFSI S Tronic with Tech Pack and Sun roof, which will hopefully make it feel like a totally new car

    I've decided to move from diesel to petrol. I currently have an A6 C7 BE 272. Just placed an order for a white S5 Sportback. There's one already on the way to my dealer from Germany. It's got some extras added: Flat bottomed steering wheel, Privacy glass, Red leather, Virtual cockpit, Extended lighting pack and Folding mirrors. I would have chosen these had I ordered from fresh. I'd probably have added Storage pack, and phone box but these are not a deal breaker, sure I'll live without these. Is there another way to connect 2 phones?

    Looking forward to going back to petrol, and to something slightly different having had 2 A6 C7's. I will admit, I still prefer the look of the A6 saloon BE to what I'm getting but that's probably cos I'm an old guy.

    If you have the ability to code your car, you can code it to add the ability to pair 2 phones.

    Not read the manual yet, but wondering why the stop/start seems relatively random in the times it decides not to auto-stop? I like the feature where it re-starts when it detects the car in front start to pull away, is there a setting buried in the MMI (or with VCDS) somewhere that can delay the auto-stopping?

    Similarly is there a setting to auto-apply the electric handbrake when shifting to park and/or turning the ignition off?

    Photos soon, it might need a wash first, the mythos black shows up rain/dust more than the old lava grey used to ...

    Mine has that, it's a nice high-tech option, initially somewhat overwhelming the choices you have of various things on one or both screens,
    but I'm sure I'll settle into a "normal" usage of phone/radio/media on the MMI screen and dials+map on the cockpit.

    My last two cars have been diesel (a 2.2 CDTi Honda and the 3.0 TDI Audi) and had thought I was a convert, but I feel "they" are out to kill-off diesel a bit too quickly and didn't want to be the last one at the party, so switched back to petrol this time, the 2.0 TFSI is pretty damned smooth and obviously has a higher redline and makes quite a noise while getting there

    Nice car and Mythos black looks fantastic when clean. As you say, can be a de il to keep that way though!

    stop-Start will not work if the draw on the battery or engine is high I.e. just after starting or if for example the air con is on a high setting. There are devices you can get that override the function but no MMI or VCDS setting as yet.

    Electric handbrake can seem intermittent too in my experience. Sometimes when parking it will apply and others not. Not sure why but Iíve got in the habit of pulling the lever up myself now.
