    Will be looking to replace the other half’s car and she wants either an A5 or S5 convertible. What’s the preferred engine, spec etc? Budget up to about £12-£13k. Not too fussed on engine size as we only do short journeys in it, usually 10 miles each way or less

    what should I look for, and more importantly look to avoid?

    Thanks in advance people

    a smaller engine might last you longer with there being less of it to get to temperature over a small journey, a 2 litre petrol would be grand and cheaper than the s5, something like this (without the chromed out grill maybe lol) LINK I had the 1.8 engine in the multitronic and loved it until someone pulled out in front of me...

    10 miles or less each way?

    I’d look for a V6 or V8 (if poss) engined one. Might as well enjoy the engine sound, and MPG wise, 10 miles is nothing really.

    Those engines do make a fine sound.
