S5 Sportback bB8

Got this back in September but only got around to take some decent pics.

S5 Sportback seems to be under represented here, and anywhere else online.

Guess it's a bit a specialist choice.

It's my wife's car actually, mine is the A4 3.0 TDI Q s-line black edition in the background. Don't see many of those around.

Welcome  

Fellow S5 Sportback owner, and agree they're not that common on here - there are a couple - but since they're mechanically identical to the S4 lots of relevant information to be had

Ours is pretty much identical to yours, except for not being a black edition

Thanks. Yep pretty similar but mine is moonlight blue. Not that easy to see on the pics.

It's not a full black edition, but has some of the styling.

The car is standard, I've only had privacy glass added.

Great fun family car.  Definitely a step up from the previous a5 sportback 2.0 tfsi q black edition.

Nope, always been s-tronic only in B8 and B8.5 form.  You also get Supersports leather seats as standard, compared to optional on the S4

Thanks, they are very nice looking cars.

As this is the pre face lift it only comes with 4 belts. Got someone to come around in 2 weeks to retrofit middle back seat for the few occasions when needed.

Ideally, I'd like to do a proper rear seat sofa conversion but don't know where to get hold of a good 2nd hand one.

Right, I've now retrofitted a middle seat belt. Looks a lot better than expected. Two guys came around Friday PM with their mobile fitting van.

Probably spent 2 hours on it.

The belt roller is anchored to the floor of the car and "snap in" bit shares anchor point with left rear seat.

250 all in, can't complain.

The other option is replace the 2 seat back rest, which has the belt built in. Been told that about 1200 from Audi...

And yes, I need to hoover my boot.

Awesome car!
A customer of mine has the same in black, now with pulley upgrade, K&N intake and akrapovic cat-back exhaust.
The noise it makes is insane, sounds like a V8 now.
The launch control with these cars are also a lot of fun

I bet it does. No plans for upgrades ATM. Other big financial commitments waiting on me...
