    Tyres for SQ5

    Hi Gareth, Yes 2 sets of 4 to get the 8 tyres. Just seems a lot less than previous tyres I've had driving no differently.

    Tyres for SQ5

    What tyres are you using on your Q5 or SQ5? I currently have Pirelli P Zeros 21 inch and have pretty much got through 8 tyres in 34k miles. Do you use the same? If different why did you choose them and what differences have you noticed? Thanks
  3. Hi Gareth, its a 2017 model so only out of warranty earlier this year and yes I have all the paperwork from previous visits and ther attempted fixes.
  4. Hi everyone, My SQ5 has had a rattle in the panoramic roof for over a year now. Its been back to the dealer 4 times now and had it lubricated etc etc. I told the dealer many times in the past that it was a known problem with SQ5 and I believed the solution was to replace the frame which is a big expensive job which they didn't want to do. It is now out of warranty and guess hat the solution is. Replace the frame £2700 + cost. They have offered to pay 75% but this leaves me with a bill of over £600 for an issue that would have been resolved in warranty if they had done as I suggested. I've initially gone back and said that's not good enough ask the manager for a rethink and they also say if they contribute I must give them a 5 star rating which sounds a bit like blackmail to me. Does anyone know what my rights are or had the same issue and successfully resolved? Thanks in advance

  6. My oil light came on today for a top up in my Diesel SQ5. Looking at all the oil sites like Castrol they recommend 5W-30 oil but I called an audi garage and they said no don't use that it has to be 0W-30. This makes me a bit nervous as to what is correct. I've tried calling 2 other audi garages but nobody seems to answer the phone so wondered what others use so I can get some tonight / tomorrow morning. Thanks
  7. If I were you I' find one with and without and compare. I have B&O in my SQ5 but to me it doesn't make a huge difference to what I've had in other cars without.

    SQ5 Remap

    Why would you want to increase the BHP? I find there aren't enough opportunities to use what it currently has unless you don't take account of speed limits.
  9. In my SQ5 I often find the speed limit is wrong so you can' fully rely on them being correct. Good to have but still need to use your own eyes to spot road signs.
  10. Looking to get my car detailed per the below. How much do you think it should cos and how much did you pay if you don't mind sharing for your detail. Did it make a huge difference? - Gtechniq CSL & EXOv3 - This is the best combination for protection, the tough and durable coating from Crystal Serum Light help prevent marring, swirling and chemical damage. The top coat of EXO will provide the wax like gloss and ease of maintenance. Wheel Protection - Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour (12 Month Protection): This is the best protection available for wheel protection, the coating crystalizes to the wheel helping prevent the build up of dirt and brake dust. Glass Protection - Gtechniq G1 Smart Vision (12 Month Protection): The coating leaves a hydrophobic layer on the glass keeping the glass cleaner for longer, also helping prevent ice build up in cold weather: Interior Protection - Gtechniq Total Surface protection - Gtechniq L1 Leather guard on all leathers, C6 on all matt plastics and I1 on all fabrics. These products offer protection from staining, discoloring and offers UV protection. Thanks everyone
  11. Thinking about having a dashcams front and rear. Firstly are they worth having? Are they easy to use and install? Are hardwired better? Any suggestions and opinions would be great, especially if you know anyone who deals with fitting them around Derby or Nottingham. Thanks
  12. Just wondered which brands of Ad blue you use and how you have found refilling. I've read you need a special bottle to go this. Is that true or can you just pour in via the funnels for the Ad blue containers? Thanks

    Sunroof

    Hi. I recently bought an SQ5 with pano roof. It certainly let's a lot more light into the cabin and if you have rear passengers they can have a fantastic view. There are many different stages up2 the roof being open from just being tilted or fully open. Great on a lively warm day. Also for resale many people want them even if you don't particularly, it is worth thinking about that.
  14. Hi everyone. I'm on the lookout for an SQ5 PLUS or Ltd EDITION Monsoon Grey. Must have panoramic roof and under 10k miles. Please let me know if you have one or know of one for sale. Many Thanks
  15. I was looking at a 16 reg with a main dealer which has the aluminium trim. Can't say I love it so asked how much to replace for piano black or the carbon and they quoted £1600 for the piano black. They must be on some sort of drugs.
