Comment: wish i hadnt bought one
Good: It's style . 2.0tfsi engine is great . Big trunk (boot )
Bad: Hard seats ,stiff suspension ! Lump by left foot in right hand drive cars !
Comment: I have an SE 2.0T fsi , coupe , in Scuba Blue . It's a great car , bought mainly for it's great looks . It is practical as well , the boot is big and square with a flat floor , drop down seats are a good touch too . But seats are too hard which are not helped by the stiff wheel springs ! I bought the SE version in order to get the softest suspension but did not help much . However I would advise not thinking you are some sort of 'sports car driver ' and opting for the S line version as you will do your back in !
Please Audi take a drive in any Volvo and replicate their seats in your next A5 version ! Oh and while you are at it get rid of the lump in the drivers foot well . I know this is only in right hand drive cars but you sell allot of them here in the UK and it is a pain in the . . . er foot !
99.9% of owners won't be doing track days so please make the suspension softer and the seats more comfy . . please !
Why have a satnav that won't except 7 digits too ? Even a £120 Tomtom is more practical than your £1500 'low ' satnav option !
Your start stop engine cut off system is good but it would be nice if you could turn it off on a permanent basis , it resets it self after the engine is turned off .
I would also suggest fitting two large seats in the back . It's cramped at the best of times for knee room so you are never going to get three in there anyhow so may as well make any unfortunate rear seat passengers feel cosseted ? A 50:50 rear seat fold down split I sure would be fine with most owners .
If Audi need anymore design advise please contacted me direct !
